Once again, we have a call to create a template for the MS-1216 label. It’s a removable label on a small sheet. Disclaimer: While many of our customers have no problem printing on these labels, these labels were originally designed for hand application, and are also designed to be removable. So there is the possibility of one or more of these labels coming off inside your printer. Use these labels in your printer at your own risk.
Click on the above picture to get the template in Microsoft Word Format. Here’s a shout out to Shane, who needed a template for the MS-6432. As always, be sure that your printer can handle these labels. They were originally designed to be for hand applications, and they’re removable. Some printers have very tight paths over the rollers and these labels might come off of the sheet and damage your printer. Also, some laser printers run very hot, and could also cause the labels to come off in the printer. Other issues with printing on these small sheets is that your printer might have large margins so that the printable area will be smaller than you think on the top and bottom labels.
When considering using Color Coding Labels for certain applications, be sure you are planning to put them on compatible surfaces. Our removable labels stick well to glass and ceramic surfaces. Sometimes they stick a little too well, because the surface is so smooth, it creates a fantastic sealing surface for the glue to stick to. It’s usually not a big deal to take the label off, and sometimes there might be a little bit of glue left on the smooth surface that you have to clean off. Also, if the label is left on for say, several years, all bets are off on remove-ability. They labels might adhere even more to the surface, or they might fall of depending on the surface. When applying the color coding label to any surface, make sure the surface is dry and clean and free of dust and dirt. As always, extreme environments are not good for labels. Extreme environments include extreme cold, extreme heat, extended exposure to sunlight, high humidity, or exposure to rain or steam.
