Address or other labels?

You can find many on amazon so what do I own? The usual p-touch thing is nice. I had one to connect to a PC and found it just as easy to use the buttons on the labeler.

Label maker

As Bob Proffitt said, the P-TOUCH units are a really good way to go. You can do labels with an all in one or a stand alone printer but I am still in favor of the P-TOUCH they are, in my opinion, easier to use and in the long run more cost effective, especially over an inkjet unit.

Narrow it down

How many labels do you plan to print? This will greatly narrow down your selection. Further, the s/w yu use can be a great help as it can when using "label sheets" typical of any printer use will enhance where it prints if you say, half of the labels present. -OR- if you use a rool, again the s/w can replicate the output to your needs. While a P-type printer will do good, these are not intended for continuous usage but short output. Gain, you need to suit your needs to the printer is being used for. Also, using a P-type printer the paper rolls aren't cheap as well for any brand.
