Chris thanks - I just purchased a non-handheld one! Hilarious! But where do you get the black tape for it? Do you not use the extra strength adhesive?
Let me know!! I made my first label - 'Ohio Burgundy' nodding I tip my hat to you. Hurray!

I just get my tape at Wal-mart. Will check the Amazon site. I put 2-3 layers of clear finger nail polish over the label for extra protection.

Paul that's a great idea! Now where is that fingernail polish when you need it! nodding Blinking
Chris - yes please do give me the number! I couldn't locate it so ordered clear with black ink (which over the clear label markers works just fine, but yours really do stand out!!) I tip my hat to you.

goldfinch- how long do the labels last? I know they also make special tape tor outdoors, but maybe it isn't necessary. The link seems to indicate that it is "regular"

Hi Anna, I've had mine outside for 5 years and they're still good as new. The tape I linked to above is laminated for indoor/outdoor use. It works great!

Good to know. I love all the pictures. Wish I had better success. Seems I just can't get the soil mix right. Either drains too fast or stays too moist. Of course if I took better notes, I would know what to change Blinking

I agree too
These are what my labels look like. These have evolved using tips from several of the forums on this site. I read the daylily forum much of the time and those people can label. :greengrin:
I buy my zinc labels from the lily auction. They run about 40.00 per 100.
Then I use the handy brother P-touch. Mine is a PT-2730. The tape is 34 inch white with Black print. TZe-241
Then I spray the markers with rust-oleum crystal clear enamel.
Here's a few pictures.
Thumb of 2013-10-14/springcolor/7039f1 I used this box some plants came in to spray the markers

Thumb of 2013-10-14/springcolor/dfbaac The finished product. The metal spikes are a bit long but I will cut them down

Thumb of 2013-10-14/springcolor/fd78bd The spray paint I use. I have had these on some of my daylilies for a year or so and they are just as nice as the day I made them.

Hope this helps and my 2 cents. Love Chris's clear plastic ones but I wanted bigger so I don't have to squat or get classes to read. *Blush* Hilarious!
