RE: What did you get today?
It's Prime day on Amazon.  I got a Brother P-touch Personal Labeler (PT-90) because I can't read my own writing on little plastic bottles of ejuice.  Price made it too hard to pass up.  Also picked up some 60ml bottles.

Still no sign of my gearbest order.

RE: What did you get today?
Problem with Brother labelling devices is the cost of the tapes. I got my labeller for free - around $2000 of tapes ago. Dymo labellers are cheaper and the tapes cost way less. Here.
YMMV

The problem with most labelers is all the wasted tape at the beginning and the end.  Makes those typos hurt all the more.  I'll probably make short juice names just because the tape is expensive.

Just buy some printable labels. I got address labels, 30 per sheet, it was like ten bucks for a hundred sheets. I just design them in the computer and print them, they fit perfectly on a juice bottle.

To be honest, it wasn't a great idea when I had it... I bought the labels for work. It wasn't until later that I figured I could use them for juice Tongue

I got my Brother P-Touch a few years ago as a 'parting gift' from a former employer, so the cost was easily justified. And the current employer uses the same tape rolls so I'm covered. Dirol

if all for personal use a glass bottle and a china marker would work well and clean up easily for reuse . a spot of clear packing tape will prevent smudges .

RE: What did you get today?
I just know the flavors based on the juice color; no labeling needed. No, not really. But yes Chuck, for sure. If aesthetics aren't critical, any type of labeling will suffice.
