Label maker

What label maker do you have? Looking to upgrade mine with something that sticks better and last longer!

I use this one but only stencils or metal nameplates for engineroom components. Too easy to clog a bilge pump with falling labels or tape.

P-touch.

No problems with labels falling off or longevity.

I got a Dyno Rhino 4200 few months ago, very happy with it. What I like the most is the ability to print on different support like heat shrink tubes as well as plain standard stickers.

The PO used blue masking tape and a Sharpie.

Works well.

P touch here also. I put people's names on their scuba tanks with it, lasts for years regardless of how much they are used. They offer a wide selection of tapes including ones with extra strength adhesive.

Same here.

Look for the label media you want, first. Then pick a label maker which supports that media. I wanted long-lasting black-on-white labels, but also the ability to do breaker panel labels white on black. The Dymo 4200 fit the bill perfectly.

From the manual: "RHINO label cartridges are also available in a wide range of
materials, such as flexible nylon, permanent polyester, vinyl, non-adhesive tag, and heat shrink tubes."

This was the big selling point for me.

I use a Brady portable unit.

The reason I use this model is because it supports specialty label types for wires and cables. It also uses heavier duty labels than the office units, but I don't know if that is all that important on a boat.

While the P-touch seems like the popular unit around the office, the electrical industry seems to prefer Brady
