For other stringers out there, just wondering if anyone knows where to get custom labels made, the labels you put on the inside of the racquet saying the date it was strung, strung type and tension. Thanks!

You'll see it in the link uk_skippy posted, but I use the PT-1230pc. I love that the labels adhere very nicely to the frame without leaving a gummy residue when you remove it. The tape cartridges are a touch expensive, and the unit wastes quite a bit of tape, but to me the quality of the label makes the expense tolerable.

If you go with the PT-1230, pick up an ac adapter from Amazon ($19). That's a much better option than using batteries...unless you're using rechargeable batteries, that is.

Here's one from a hybrid (http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/9030/pt1230pc.jpg).

Old thread, but one of the knocks on the Brother PT-1230 is that it waste too much tape...which it does. That is, if you don't download the new driver & editor (http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/#.U6pH4clOm70)

By using the editor, you can print one and/or multiple labels and only waste a little more than a 1/2" of tape. Without the editor for every two labels you print you're wasting enough tape to make new label...probably a little more. The editor is fairly easy to use, and it allows you to manipulate/construct your labels allowing significantly more flexibility than the built-in program.

The best part, however, (in my opinion) is how much tape you save when using the editor. If you own a PT-1230 you'll want to give it a try.
