Maco Labels or Avery Labels, you decide.

November 16, 2010

If you’ve ever gone to Office supply stores to look for and shop for Address Labels, you know the Avery name. Everybody knows Avery labels. They are known for their quality and reliability. No argument here, they are great labels. The thing is, when you pick up a box of them in the store, you need to be sitting down when you glance at the price tag. It might be mistaken for a sku number. I’m just sayin. The price of their labels is on the high side. Maco labels are also quality labels, and are reliable, but you won’t have to take out a home equity loan to purchase them.

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers

June 18, 2010

For winning the NBA Champoinship. It was an exciting game, it was close most of the game with the Lakers winning 83-79. After winning, Ron Artest didn’t say he was going to Disney, and he didn’t thank God for the victory, but he did thank his psychiatrist. What the huh?
Check out the fun things you can do with the free graphics manipulating program Gimp:, champion of label sellers.

You need to check out Oracle VM VirtualBox

June 2, 2010

It used to be Sun VirtualBox, but Oracle bought Sun. This is free software that you can download here. You can run this software on Mac or PC or Linux. After you install VirtualBox, you install whatever Virtual operating system you want on your host machine. So you can run Mac on a Windows Machine, a Mac on a Linux Machine, a Linux machine on PC or Mac. Performance is not bad either. I expected much worse even on a 2.4 Ghz Intel dual processor with 3 gig of RAM. I uploaded the latest release of Ubuntu which is awesomely easy to install and use.

So you can take Ubuntu for a serious test drive to see if you want to do a hard install on a hard drive. Discover all of the neat free and useful software that runs on Ubuntu. I installed the PiTiVi video editor which is very nice. I used it to splice together a couple of videos from a digital camera. Very nice.
OpenOffice comes with the Operating system by default. So you can print labels or whatever right after the install.

Thanksgiving is over

November 30, 2009

The yearly weight gain has begun. I’m going to have to fast for two weeks to break even. Oh well, it’s back to work. if you’re doing some shipping this holiday season, and who isn’t, you might be using our shipping labels. It’s not too hard to add graphics to make the labels look good.
If you use Microsoft Word 2007, here’s how you do it.
Click on the Mailings tab, between the References and Review tabs.
Then click on Labels in the Create panel on the left.
The Envelopes and Labels dialogue box should pop up. Here is where you’ll select your label layout.
One choice for shipping label could be the Avery 5164 which has 6 labels per page and each label is 4″ X 3-1/3″.
Click on “Label”, and another dialog box will pop up and you can choose “Avery US Letter” in the “Label vendors” drop down selection box. Then choose 5164 in the “Product number” box. Click OK.
You’ll see that a picture of the label you selected appear in the Label panel.
Then click “New Document”.
At this point, you’ll have a blank document formatted to print Avery 5164 labels. To insert pictures, just click on the “Insert” tab. Then click on Picture. Choose the picture you want to insert. Once the picture is inserted, you’ll want to format the picture. Click on “Position” in the Format Tab. There are lots of options at this point, I could write pages of instructions because I’m only guessing what you need.
If you need high quality low cost labels, check out . Our equivalent to the Avery 5164 laser label is the Maco ML-0600. You can check it out here:

Printing a few labels at at time?

November 20, 2009

If you’re printing a few labels at at time and want to re-use the sheet with the unused labels, here are some tips.
For example, if your using the Maco ML-3000 that is compatible with the Avery Label Avery 5160, after printing a few labels, you’ll have a sheet of labels with one or two labels taken off the the page. Make sure you print the labels at the bottom of the page so that when you print the next few labels, you can feed the used page of labels with the unused labels first into the printer.
If you’re using an Inkjet printer, just make sure that the labels are not at all peeling off. If you run a sheet through an Inkjet printer too many times, the labels might start peeling off because of the tight paths the paper takes around the rollers. This could become a huge problem and get stuck on the print head, and can ruin the print head and the carriage motor.
If you’re using a laser printer, running a page of labels through a few times can cause several problems. One problem is that the overexposure to the heat from the fuser can cause the labels to peel and jam in the fuser. Inspect your labels before feeding them through multiple times. Laser printers also leave a layer of toner on the whole page. It’s normally not noticeable if you’re printing just one page, one time, but if your printing one page multiple times, the page will become darker and darker with each successive print. If you have an old printer, the darkening problem will be more severe.
