As we prepared to send our daughter to daycare for the first time, we found ourselves labeling clothing, bottles and everything else we sent with her. While Sharpies and masking tape could have done the trick, the Epson LabelWorks printer makes this part of preparing your child for daycare more treat than chore with labels that are clear, professional looking, and even fun.
The LabelWorks gives you plenty of options with up to 4 lines of text, 14 fonts and 10 different font styles. Need extra emphasis? Go with bold and italics. Feeling playful? Choose cursive. In addition, there are more than 300 different symbols, which range from well recognized safety icons to animal faces that your child will love. You even have the choice of 89 different frames that give you a little extra flair for the holidays or a number of other occasions. Labeling with the LabelWorks is so easy and so much fun, that if you have an older child around the house you’ll probably find an enthusiastic volunteer to help you “make stickers.”
In addition to the roll of standard white tape that comes with the LabelWorks, Epson also offers a wide range of sold-separately labels from which to choose, including an iron-on label that is great for clothing and backpacks. Other interesting options include metallic and glow-in-the-dark tapes. The LabelWorks accommodates tape widths from 6 mm to 18 mm, and each label gets cut when completed, so length can vary.
The LW-400 has a backlit screen so that you can clearly see what you’re creating. In addition to English, it includes all the characters needed to communicate in French, Spanish and Portuguese. Should you find yourself repeatedly making the same tags, this label maker lets you store up to 50 labels that you can easily scroll through and print – a huge timesaver!
So, before you find yourself madly writing your child’s name in Sharpie on everything she owns, check out the Epson LableWorks LW-400. Available for $49.99.
