Back-to-School: The Epson LabelWorks Label Printer & Kits

Filed Under:


This article is more than 9 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

With our oldest entering First Grade this week, we’ve entered a new phased in the Back-to-School realm – that of having a kid in school all-day. With that, there’s more supplies to be taken, and the potential for more things to go lost (which has happened), misplaced or mixed-up. With that in mind, the folks at Epson sent us one of their new LabelWorks Label Maker Kits for review – specifically, their Iron-On Kit. It was time to get to labeling!

Epson LabelWorks

Having owned a lot of labelmakers over the years, they always look more intimidating than they are – packing a ton of buttons and a good-sized manual. The Epson LW-300 is pretty easy-to-use, with a decent font selection and an assortment of cute and useful icons available. The kit (which comes in a helpful carrying case for storage) includes two cartridges of iron-on tape – great for clothing and other cloth goods, but you’re gonna want to pick up some additional tapes in the adhesive varieties to label things like lunchboxes, plastics – anything that might melt under the heat of an iron. Also be careful with backpacks, as these heat-applied labels are great for cotton, polyester and blends – but could damage other materials. I was able to use our Epson LabeWorks labels on little Finley’s PBS KIDS Backback from Whole Foods, but not Addie’s Snoopy PEANUTS Backpack from Hanna Andersson (which has a write-on label inside).

Each label took seconds to apply using nothing more than our normal iron – with no water/steam. About 20-seconds each, and done. And for some of the items that both of our girls use? Two names…
