Running labels through multiple times

By swomack ·
This is not a very technical question but thought I would try. Does anyone know a solution to the problem of laser labels getting gray after being sent thru a laser printer several times? I know it is the heat of the printer and I thought about trying another brand of label (now using Avery). I don't know how to solve our assitant's problem of needing to print one label at a time but not wasting the rest of the labels on that sheet.

If you intend to print just a few labels at a time, get the "Mini" labels 2160-2162 Avery. You can get them with just 4 on a sheet.

The next best thing to mini labels is the phone number of a cheap printer repair shop. Often labels can detach from the backing, and excess glue can mess up the drum.

Get a label printer.. a little serial device direct attached to the PC. Running label sheets through a laser printer multiple times is asking for trouble. You'll find yourself replacing tomer cartridges and drums more often then you change your socks.

1. My first advice is: don't use budget-labels in a laser printer. Good qualty labels (like Avery) are more expensive but far better in terms of
glue quality. They are also more thin and therefore don't cause problems with labels getting loose inside your priunter.
This may result in costly repairs of your printer.
2. Make sure your printer is serviced and cleaned. This will prevent loose toner inside it which ends up on the next sheet coming through.
3. A label printer is a good alternative; Dymo has some very good ones, although they come at a price.
