    Anyone know where I can find labels for putting tension and date on rackets. I tried some at Staples and they do not work well, in addition do not come off easily.

    You can use stringjob.com to keep detailed records of your jobs (if you wish).

    The website also interfaces with a couple of label printers (I have a Brother QL-570, which I got from A..zon for under $100..you can find them used on CL and Fleabay). You get a pretty professional looking label. (If you end up buying the brother printer and just want the template, I can send you the file, you can just edit it with the Brother label software).

    Hello Fred:
    Unless you string a great # of racquets to justify a greater expense, I use the USRSA labels, as they are cheap, ($8.00/ 50 labels) , and it has the USRSA logo, and it has a clear plastic laminate over it so once you write on it there is no smudges, and it holds up real well, and it does peal off when you want it to, and looks professional .You do need to be a member of the USRSA to get those, but the USRSA is well worth it in my opinion.

    I use Avery 8167 return address labels. You can then get a template for Word and put in whatever you want. http://www.amazon.com/Avery-Return-Address-Printers-08167/dp/B00004Z5QO . If you would like to see what one of the finished labels looks like, just let me know.
