Labels and Laser Printers
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   12 years ago

I mention this in one of my beginner PC classes, but I just want to reiterate this very important factoid:

Be VERY careful when using labels in LASER printers. They have a tendency to PEEL OFF inside the printer - especially cheap ones (cheap labels and printers).

NEVER EVER EVER use a label sheet more than ONCE through a laser printer. The heat melts and softens the label glue, making it even more prone to come off the second time through!

I just recently had a label peel off inside my color label printer (which is why a bunch of you are getting black & white labels on some of your CDs this month). It took me a WHILE to fix it... and I know how to take these things apart and clean them. If you don't it's a COSTLY repair bill.

Wow, never thought of that one. I have a samsung color laser printer which has run flawless, but so far, i've never needed to print labels on it yet. It never occured to me that the heat from the laser printer can loosen the label from the paper. Very nice tid bit to know ahead of time. Thanks for the heads up.
