Admit it: you dread having to troubleshoot or make any changes to your computer setup or home theater equipment because it’s just too darn frustrating to weed through all those cords and find out which one goes with which component. And how many times have you accidentally disconnected the wrong one? It’s okay, it happens to the best of us, but to be quite honest, it sounds like you need some sort of cable label…
Label printers are terrific for labeling cables, but if you can’t justify owning one simply to label the cords of a few electronic devices, then I know of something I think you’ll be interested in: Kableflags® cable identification tags. Kableflags are flexible flag-style cable markers that are available pre-printed in entertainment, computer, or home theater packs, or in a blank style that lets you create your own labels with a permanent marker.
Kableflags® have a self wrapping, self-locking design that completely eliminates the need for adhesives, so your cables won’t get sticky like they might from stick-on labels. The soft PVC material withstands many reuses, and will never corrode. Another great feature of Kableflags is that they’re completely adjustable, so they’ll fit just about any cable, from thin wires to bulkier power cords.
Label printers are incredible organizational tools to have, but there’s just one problem: they only print in black. What do you do when you need to print custom labels in color? One easy solution is to try our Print-On Label Sheets for laser and inkjet printers.
These label sheets are a standard 8½” x 11″ size, so they’re compatible with any printer. And formatting is incredibly easy – just download the template for the appropriate label size right from our product detail page, input your information, and print away. Depending on which size label you need, there are anywhere from 8 to 156 labels per sheet, with 10 sheets included in each pack. If you’re looking to print custom labels in volume without investing hundreds of dollars into an industrial label printer, these labels sheets are a very smart and economical choice.
The labels are made of a UV-inhibited polyester material, which means they can stand up to the abuse of ultraviolet radiation should you choose to use them outdoors. However, while they’re suitable for occasional exposure to water and oil, they’re not a good match for perpetually wet environments. They’re also self-laminating, which helps to increase label lifespan by putting a clear protective layer over the printed surface. When labeling cables, simply stick a label’s printed end to the cable first, then wrap the see-through remainder of the label around the cable and back over the printed part. That one simple wrapping motion leaves you with a well-protected, durable label.
