Hi Brian,

If you put clear packaging tape over the label, you can dribble almost anything on it and it will be still be okay.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] labels

How does everyone make temporary labels for solutions that go to lab? A generation ago I programmed an Apple IIe to make labels with a dot matrix printer. They worked great but eventually the computer people stopped supporting that hardware. Now I use a PC with a Dymo Labelwriter Turbo. These labels are on thermal print stock and don't do well when solvents or acids dribble on them. I'm hoping some of you have a better method.
