If you print labels in your printer, make sure you purchase labels which are a good quality. If you have a dot matrix printer, low quality or marginal labels may peel off as the label stock moves around the platten. If this happens, you could end up with labels stuck inside your printer where it is difficult to remove them. If you have a laser printer, make sure the labels you use are designed for the high heat generated by a laser printer. If not, the adhesive on the back of the labels may soften to a point where the labels come off in the printer, or the adhesive oozes out and messes up your printer. Good quality labels should be available from any business supply store, and are worth the few extra pennies you have to pay.
