Does anyone remember the old school manual label maker in the 80s, Dymo? That piece of plastic thingy with a revolving disc and you slip in a label strip and punch in embossed letters? Yup, that one..the one in the picture...I had one when I was in grade school and I loved it. I made labels for my water bottle, pencil case, lunch box and whatever I can stick those cute little labels on. And I'm pretty sure I still have one somewhere at home but I really don't remember where I kept it.....These days, Dymo's making the modern electronic ones, so when I saw a new retro version, IN PINK!, I knew I MUST get it!!! Here!
No no no, I didn't JUST buy it cos I actually got this while I was in Hong Kong. So still a very good chinese jew. Anyways, this one is a sup-ed up version! Not only does it have the standard letter embossing, it's even got an additional disc of cursive letters and little cute icons like hearts and stuff! And these days, they've got such cute tapes...with pink polka dots and even cherries! I LOVE THIS!!!!
Well thing is, the embossing is still best on solid colored tapes cos the ones with patterns just look kinda light and didn't have that same old school analogue oomph...But I'm loving this....the modern label maker just can't compare!
