Label Your Keys with a Dymo LetraTag

LetraTag Key Labels
Got a lot of keys on a lot of key rings / chains and have to rummage through them all to find the ones you want? Maybe you’re just in the mood to organize your keys. Either way, a Dymo LetraTag can help, and it only takes a matter of seconds to print a label and stick it on your keys.

This article describes just how easy it is.

Starting with a Dymo LetraTag label maker (pre-loaded with a Dymo LetraTag 91331 Plastic Label tape) we simply entered the text ‘BOBS KEYS’ followed by pressing the SPACE  key 5 times and then typing ‘BOBS KEYS’ again. After pressing the PRINT button we get the label shown above.

Next we peel off the back of the label, feed it half way through the keyring, then press both halves back to back to make a tag-like label (see picture). It really is a simple way to label your keys and it only takes a few moments to do. Wrapping half of the label back onto the other half creates adhesion that can’t be peeled away easily, meaning that the label won’t be coming off in a hurry. Also, we opted for the ‘plastic’ label tape because the ‘paper’ won’t last as long given that it tears easily. With the plastic label, the only way it will come off the keyring is if it is cut off.

We used the DYMO LetraTag Plus LT-100T Label Maker (1733013) to create this label, but you can get the same label using the handheld model (Dymo 21455).

Tv Coax Labels on the Rhino 4200

Making labels for cables is easy on the Dymo Rhino 4200 label printer. In fact, this is one of the uses that the 4200 was specifically designed for.

If you’ve ever ended up with a birds nest of cables when putting together your home theatre system, a Rhino 4200 will definitely help to declutter the mess. This artical is about how we created a label that wraps around a TV coax cable. Almost identical steps can be taken to create labels for all kinds of cables.

In our Rhino 4200 we had already loaded a 19mm Yellow label tape (Dymo 45808 D1 label tape). After switching on the label maker we pressed the WIRE/CABLE hot key and scrolled until got to COAX and pressed OK. We then pressed the SIZE hot key until it got to 18pt. Finally we used the keypad to type the text ‘TV’, then pressed the print button.

The label that came out looked like this:

To apply it to the cable you simply stick the part that has no text printed on it on the cable, then wrap the rest of it around the cable.

See the images below for how it ends up looking on the cable.

The Dymo Rhino 4200 is a very affordable label maker from Dymo and takes a wide variety of labels sizes and colors. it uses 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ and 3/4″ labels from Dymo’s D1 Label range and the Rhino label range.

Tip : Fixed length labels on the Dymo Rhino 6000

Dymo Rhino 6000Normally the length of a label is determined by the length of the text string you want to print. If you want to print a sequence of say 10 characters, by default that label will be shorter than a label that is 15 characters long. On the Dymo Rhino 6000 you can actually specify the length of the label, irrespective of how much text you want to print on it. Learn more : Dymo Rhino 6000 fixed length labels
