Hello gardeners,

I can purchase new or used but, I would like to know which label hold up in the sun. And which label maker you prefer and why? I am now scribing them and it takes me a long time with these old bony fingers!!!

I use the brother handheld gardening label maker. GL-H105. Works great. The only downside is the tape can be pricey and takes 6 batteries each time they need a change. I would still recommend it and haven't had any issues with water or fading.

I use this Brother label maker with laminated label tape. I bought the metal labels from PawPaw label Company. My labels have so far lasted for at least 9 years

@Cassicarothers I wish I could handle one like that, I am afraid I need a desk model. I would surely drop that one in the yard with these old arthritic hands. Thanks for responding.

@jvdubb Do you know which model number that is. I am looking for one to use at a desktop and that looks perfect.
