P-Touch update:

LOL, counter-intuitively, a P-Touch (at least my PT-1750) will print smaller on a 3/8" (9mm) label as opposed to a 1/4" (6mm) label since the operating system will allow 2 line printing on the 3/8" label, and it turns out smaller.

And as anticipated, you will need to trim the labels apart with scissors or X-acto.

A good thing, considering the tape is expensive, is if you plan ahead and do several at once, you aren't going to use too much tape. I have tried a test label, and it definitely looks like you might want to measure and space out 4 or 5 labels on one key row at a time instead of doing them all separately.

I only have 3/8" tape in black print on white background right now, and it's quite legible, but I'd like to look thru the catalog and see what other color combos are available. Black on clear might be pretty good.

My P-Touch will print mirror image, I don't know if it would improve durability to apply them to the underside of a clear overlay and then put a RTN/CLX/A trimmed buff colored one beneath the clear one, but it might be something to try.

(my press on lettering from the 80s has been disappointing in it's longevity; I don't know if it wore off or flaked off, but it looks sad)
