Hi everyone,
[this is my first post!] :D

I am reviewing the archives, but thought I would ask the group if there are any recommendations for a reasonably-priced spine label printer?
Thanks so much!

Hello --

Looking to see if anyone has any more recent recommendations for spine label printers to be used with Sierra? (We currently are using fairly outdated & sometimes finicky Epson LQ 570 and Epson LQ 590.)

Update (Aug. 8, 2016) - Print Templates worked and now we need to develop a template for CODOC numbers, if that's even feasible. The SUDOC template in the Clearinghouse might be a good starting point.

Hello,

Is there any special setup needed for printing spine labels on a DYMO LabelWriter 450 Turbo Thermal Label Printer? We're finding that nothing is printing from Sierra on our DYMO printer (option under Local Printer). Presumably our Sierra label settings are not the problem because they work well for batch printing of spine labels using Create Lists and Print Wizard.

We are also contacting DYMO for help.

Hi again!
We are looking into doing our spine labels via Millennium.
In researching label stock (1" x 1.5";) for spine labels, I've noticed that most of the label stock seem to be in a format where the label is on its side.
Can Millennium print labels on this stock? I've tried landscape and reverse landscape with no luck (I presume this is where Print Wizard and/or Print Templates come in).
If we stick with doing labels in millennium and printing from a label printer, do we have to stick with stock where the label is 'upright'?
Thanks for any advice!

Hi Glen,
I am told we do about 10K/year for monographs and 8K/year for journals. We are looking for something that will allow us to print labels in batches.

thanks for your suggestion!

What volume of printing do you anticipate?

We switched a while back from dot-matrix (Microline 320 Turbo) workhorses which would have lasted forever it seems to Dymo Labelwriters (more flexible label stock options including Ring shaped labels for DVD's CD's etc., better fonts and appearance of printed call numbers, much smaller and quieter) and are quite happy with them. That said, we do relatively low volume labeling and don't know if this would work for a higher volume library. At the time we switched to the Dymos, we also considered printing our call number labels in batches on letter-sized label stock through already accessible laser printers. It worked fine, but went with the flexibility of the Dymos. There is some concern that the thermal paper of the dymos means the labels will fade over time, but haven't seen it yet in the 10 years since we switched.

A quick check of Amazon has a DYMO LabelWriter 450 Turbo Thermal Label Printer for $65. The label stock comes on rolls. There is paper and poly label stock. For spine labels, we use "LV-30347P" label stock 750 1" x 1.5" labels. There are paper versions of these labels as well but we prefer the poly (plastic?) version.

Hope this helps.

Glen
