Holy moly, download a JPEG, slap it in the designer, and out pops a perfect label.

How did I do without this for so long?

Never mind photographic gear, I can label my closet sections by designer logos.

My guess is that you are talking about the Brother tape printer?

I once printed personal labels that looked in part like this for one project.....

About the size seen when on 24mm tape, extracted from a colour selfie image.

If scanned and enlarged the dots look like this.....

Seems to be about 80dpi but translated nicely from the original hi-res colour image.

The only problem noted is when obtaining tapes. One online supplier really believed his wholesaler and sent me the old TZ tapes and they do not fit, it MUST be TZe tapes. Many back and forth arguments with documentary photos to prove that the tapes were indeed different and do not fit the machine.

I try and make as many labels as I can in one continuous print run as the tapes are expensive and that little leader chop off that always happens actually costs me money.

Happy printing.

Regards.... Guy
