NCIX Canada: Brother P-Touch Electronic Labelling System Only $10

NCIX Canada: Brother P Touch Electronic Labelling System Only $10

I originally was going to blog about this deal on Amazon, where this labelling system is $19.86, but when price comparing I found it for the even better price of $9.99. NCIX lists the regular price as $24.99, but Amazon lists it for $39.99. Staples has the regular price as $34.86, so whatever regular price you choose, know this is a good deal anyway.

I’ve blogged before that I had a labelling system that I loved, but my kids wrecked it (story of my life) and I am looking for another one as I get into organization mode. You can’t beat the ease of use for this model, and you’ll want to label everything in your house, including your kids and your dog. Been there, done that. And it looks like Christopher Aloi, who took the banner picture also had the same idea.

This labelling system lets you label things in a stylish way with eight patterns and three changeable face plates. Your labels print in 9mm or 12mm widths with one or two lines of text.

There is one review on NCIX, which gives it a four star rating. This reviewer used it to label network ports around the house, which is a great idea. You could also use it to label cords and wires so you aren’t wondering “what the heck does this attach to?”. I have so many USB cords littering my desk drawers and I really only know what the ones for my cell phone and my camera do. The others are a mystery. If I had labelled them when I got them, then they would be easy to find, but then I wouldn’t be labelled as the opposite of proactive.

Shipping is $8 on this item, but it is very fast express shipping and still brings the price in less than the competitors.

Costco Canada: Brother Electronic Labelling System Only $29.99

Costco Canada: Brother Electronic Labelling System Only $29.99

Get yourself organized this year with the Brother electronic labelling system from Costco for only $29.99, was $64.99. You’ll save $35 and get free shipping.

I had a Brother labelling system, although not this one, until my kids broke it (yes, another item they broke of mine). I loved labelling items including storage bins, kids items, files and so much more. This one on sale at Costco is a literal steal, and I’m thinking of picking one up for myself. I don’t do spring cleaning at my house because the weather is usually too nice and I don’t want to be inside. Fall cleaning is more like it and once all my kids head off to school this house is going to become a whirlwind of organization. I could use the labeller in my pursuit of order.

It creates laminated labels up to 18mm wide in four fonts. The labels are very durable, so they stay on and don’t wash away. It has a large graphical display so that those of us who might not always wear our glasses can still preview before printing.

You’ll get a starter tape and an AC adapter included as well.

Amazon Canada: Up To 55% Off Brother Labellers & Scanners

Amazon Canada: Up To 55% Off Brother Labellers & Scanners

Scan your documents and label stuff with Brother equipment. Get up 55% off at Amazon Canada.

I work in IT and I see a lot of Brother equipment. I do support for independently managed locations, so their equipment purchases aren’t company mandated. Now, our company does offer an equipment package that does not include Brother equipment, but outside of the stuff we sell, I’d say I probably work with more Brother equipment than any other brand out there. And that is completely organic purchases. All that to say that Brother is doing something right if I can see a noticeable trend like this.

I work mainly with their printer side, but I suspect all their products are good, including their scanners and labellers. I don’t know about you guys but I should probably buy a scanner and a labeller. I have more stacks of paper that should be scanned and saved than I know what to do with. Same with old photos. I have stacks of old albums sitting in my basement taking up space. I could put it all on a hard drive, or up in the cloud. As far as a labeller, I also have tons of wires and various pieces of equipment strewn about my house that should probably be sorted and clearly labelled. Even my son’s toy bins could be labelled so he can learn to put things in their place instead of mixing every kind of toy with every other kind of toy.

Staples: Dymo LabelWriter 450 Duo Label Maker $129 (Reg $269)

Staples: Dymo LabelWriter 450 Duo Label Maker $129 (Reg $269)

After fussing with making just a few address labels on my laser printer recently, I thought, “there must be a better way to do this”. This machine just might be it. At $140 off – now $129 it won’t break the piggy bank either.

The LabelWriter 450 has some clear advantages over my printer:

  • It prints one (or more) labels without wasting paper and dealing with the layout hassle of multiple labels on one sheet
  • It prints the more permanent plastic sticky labels (Dymo refers to theirs as “D1 plastic labels”)
  • It uses thermal printing technology, so you don’t need to buy ink or toner

You do have to use Dymo’s labels though, perhaps off-setting your savings on ink or toner, depending on the kind of jobs you need to print.

Included in the box is a starter roll of address labels and a D1 cassette.

This price is good until the 1st of November and shipping is free.
