I’m a writer, and I also do a lot of giveaways through the year. I always have books on hand that I can sell at book signings and at book fairs. I also take them to libraries and even give some away as gifts. I put personalized labels on the books, and I often get my books much cheaper from the publisher. That’s because they don’t come with the UPC tags, or the bar codes as they are called, attached already. Barcodes are high-priced to purchase. The contain the name of the book, the section, the price, and other information right there in the barcode. They send you a PDF of the code with the books, but it is up to the client to put them on their books. So I always need to print out the stickers. I tried buying sticker paper and using my own printer to print, but it really wasn’t very convenient and I had to split most of the stickers apart, which gave the books a really unprofessional feel to them. So I found the Epson label printer, which is really affordable. And I can hook it up to my computer via a USB cord. I don’t even know how much money I’ve saved just on the costs of my labels. Don’t get me started about the great Sales stickers I have created with the printer! And I can even print them in different colors, thanks to my up-to-date Epson label printer. I recently went on a diet, and now, I am even making labels for the food at home. I’m driving my hubby nuts, but I’m using my Epson label printer to make the labels. This is what I promised I would do, if he bought it for me. It’s such a great addition to my office.
