Seeing the Label – the OO edition

August 10, 2010

I should have included this little tidbit a couple of posts ago, but I didn’t think of it until today. I was poking around in Open Office (OO), and I wondered how difficult it would be to find the same function that I was talking about in that post. I just wanted to be able to turn on or turn off, depending on my need, the non-printing borders that are the borders of each cell in the table of a label. I’m using an ML-3000 label here for example. It seems OpenOffice made it a bit easier to find this feature than in Microsoft Word. Simply go to Table, then Table Boundaries. It’s a toggle, so click to go back and forth between having the lines visible or invisible, and you’ll be seeing the label, or not.

Ahgrrrrrrr! I misprinted a bunch of laser labels

July 13, 2010

I hate when that happens. Yesterday I was printing some ML-0600 shippinglabels / laser labels when I realized I was printing the labels incorrectly. I thought, well, there’s got to be something I can do with these now seemingly useless shipping labels. So I was having my morning coffee and it was getting a little cold. I threw it in the microwave, which some people in the office think omits brain damaging radiation. I mean seriously, not even when it’s on. They think if you leave the door open, it emits radiation. What? Anyway I went for the coffee, and aye yay yay, it was too hot. I had put it on a full cup setting and there was only a half cup left. Ding Ding Ding. I got the misprinted ML-0600 labels, and stuck them triple thick around the cup. I saved my fingers, I used the labels, and all was right with the world. Except for the huge fight I had with my wife at 4:30 this morning. Don’t ask.

Label Application tips

May 4, 2010

If you’re doing a mailing using the ML-3000, here are a few tips to make your mailing easier. Looking at the ML-3000, you’ll notice that there are perforations between each of the three columns. Separating these columns makes peeling the labels from the page much easier.
ML-3000, compatible with Avery 5160

If you’re using the ML-0200 half sheet labels, don’t peel the label off of the sheet, peel the backing sheet off of the label. That way the paper won’t curl so much, and will be easier to apply.
ML-0200, Avery doesn't make these babies
