Labelling Alternative


Using labels keeps you looking professional and organised. Labelling documents, drawers, doors, products, envelopes and parcels are all part of the day-to-day. But can labels be used to give a retro and original theme?


It seem the idea for using the old school Dymo embossing tapes on items such as cards and invitations has been tossed around for a little while already. It gives a look and feel of a more hand-crafted, personalised item.


The embossers themselves are still available but are becoming more and more rare which is rather vintage in itself.




Don’t feel limited to using only embossing tape. There are plenty of tapes to use such as Brother’s black on silver metallic, the gold on black, and the fluorescent range of tapes. With a few of the Brother printers being computer-connected, you can use a huge variety of font styles to suit the purpose of the label. If your computer doesn’t have the font you’re looking for, there are plenty of fonts available for download online for free.


If you’re a creative individual it might be worth giving this a go for a few birthday/congratulations cards and wedding invitations. You could even setup as a bespoke card making service for friends and family. The only limit is your imagination. We’d love to see what you can create and we’d happily give your name a mention for any examples you send in.
