One of the very best birthday presents I ever received was a label maker. I have been using the Dymo Letra Tag for the past 5 years and I do like it because it's fast, reliable, and the scissor function is sharp and precise. My biggest gripe: the tape isn't as "sticky" as I would like, which means that although it works very well for labeling file folders, it doesn't want to stay put on plastic. That is a problem for some of my craft boxes. One of these days I will upgrade to a QWERTY keyboard!
