Product Review: RhinoPro1000 Label Printer

When someone mentions "label printer", I automatically think of those old school Dymo ones. Remember how you had to spell each word letter by letter and the machine would make a white indention on the different colored tapes? That was the "in" thing back then.

Well, imagine my surprise when I found out that the RhinoPro1000 Label Printer that I was supposed to review is actually made by Dymo! They've sure come a long way.

Right out of the box, I noticed the size. I like that it fits comfortably in my hand and the rubber buttons are easy to read. Everything is labeled for easy use. In fact, I didn't even need to read the instruction manual to figure out how to use it.

It came with one label cassette which contains a flexible nylon tape (11.5' x 1/2"). The printing on the tape is dark, bold, and easy to read - even with my less than perfect eye sight.

My first thought on how to best use this product was on my mess of computer cables. I don't even know which is which anymore! However, with kindergarten starting soon, Girlie Girl needs to drop off all her school supplies marked with her name. Yes, every single folder, tablet, pencil, and crayon. Did I mention that I need to drop it off in 2 days? Needless to say, I've been putting this task off for a while.

So, tonight I decided to put this label printer to the test. I inputted Girlie Girl's real name and number of copies I'd like to print. I hit the print button and voila - out came all these perfectly printed labels. What should have taken me an hour to accomplish now took about 15 minutes. Gotta love that!

The only drawback to this label printer is that it requires 6 AAA batteries. Not a big deal but I don't usually stock up on that size. Other than that, I have to say that I really like this product. It does exactly what it's supposed to do and best of all it's very user friendly.

Perfect for getting the kids ready for school!

I just thought it may be of some interest to you to know, a while back i came across a british labels company who sold me a batch of plain labels at a really low price. If you are at all interested then it may be worth visiting their website so see if you could save some money on your labels.

Great blog. My twin lads start school soon too and I am in the same boat as yourself! Back in my day we just used to write ouw names on our stuff! It looks like a great choice to go for but im wondering if it will print barcode labels? As if so it would be ideal for me to purchase.

certainly like your web-site however you need to test the spelling on
several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it
very bothersome to tell the truth however I'll certainly come back again.
