      I remember my mum buying one in the 80’s she always wondered where all the tape was. I’d be labeling the door and dog and wall. everything I could spell.

      I've got a nice die-cast chromed metal "Executive" model 1570 floating around somewhere, I must dig that out some time. I forgot that they came with different embossing wheels with different size fonts to suit different tape widths, and a vertical orientation one too. Ah, the memories… all my VHS tapes and cassettes had embossed labels on them. I do love my modern thermal labelmaker though.

    Nice find op.

    And I really need some more tape.

    It's a real shame. If this one wears out eventually: if you hunt around the various classifieds online you'll find one. I bought a used all metal one from an eBay estate sale a number of years ago. That thing will never break. It would also be a lethal weapon.

    Memories…takes me back to the days when class handouts/notes were not from photocopier/printer, but from a spirit duplicator. As a primary school kid, u could almost get “high” on the fumes…lol

    Has DYMO improved the glue used on its embossing tapes? They tend to lose their adhesiveness and fall off after a few years. I last saw them in the 1980's.

    Save time and money, just use masking tape + sharpie :-)
    This product is not worthy of ozbargain ;-)

      Have you seen what the adhesive from masking tape does over time? It goes brittle and is impossible to remove and usually damages the underlying object, years after the paper has fallen off. Amazing that is will stick to anything except the actual paper it is made from.

        let's be realistic, most people use this for labelling kitchen jars and kid's school stuff :-) If you are concerned about masking tape, get sticker labels from a dollar store. This fancy product is a luxury…. only for those with poor handwriting!

        For your expensive stuff, DYMO is better, as it falls off by itself after a while… ;-)

    Oh man I haven't used one of these for like 12 years.

    Embossing tape and the embossing device itself are relatively inexpensive to buy, usually around $10 from stationery stores. Because of this, embossing tape has found popularity with children and adolescents. Unlike paper labels, embossing tape is very durable, does not fade over time, rarely leaves a sticky residue, and does not break upon removal.

    While I'm here, does anyone know a label maker that does black writing on transparent for labelling power point switches / lights etc?

        This tape allows for printing of black text on clear.

        The last image doesn't make it seem that way?

          I bought these in the past and they are clear. That image must belong to another product. See the last picture on this listing: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B0006B2RNG

            @bio: That looks better. btw, I have one of these, and when it starts not printing a defined letter, hold down near where the ring meets the neck of the handle.

      All the modern thermal-transfer laminated label makers can do this, just have to get the right colour combo for your application, Black on clear isn't hard to find, you can also get red on clear. Some manufacturers even give you the option of gloss or matt labels, e.g. for Brother machines here. You can also get the old embossed dymo labels in clear, but due to the way they work, you can only ever have white lettering (unless you want to sit there and colour in the raised parts with a sharpie, a bit like some credit cards have painted raised numbers).

    Great to make your own embossed credit cards.

    Seems like fairly normal build up in a bathroom with a shower / bath.

    Maybe get small / sample pots of undercoat, then a ceiling white. We recently have been painting also bought some anti mold stuff at the same time which we added to the paint which apparently helps prevent mold growth. All bought from bunnings, sure the guys at the paint counter should help.

    For anyone like me that found it hard to get a clear embossing with this, you just have to press more firmly. After it's pressed down (after the clicking sound), just squeeze a bit more, and letters come out much better. Don't be too rough though, because it does feel pretty cheap and janky.
