More than a year ago I bought a DYMO (tm) brand label maker because
one type of label available for it was a metallic tape that was
"weather proof". It wanted to put labels on plastic buckets I keep
outdoors. I discovered that while the labels might be "weather
proof", they were not "sun proof". After just a few months, the
labels turned so dark that I could no longer read them.
Is there a Label maker that makes labels that will remain legible
for at least two years even when they are exposed to sunlight for
several hours a day? Thank you in advance for all replies.
Whenever I hear or think of the song "Great green gobs of greasy
grimey gopher guts" I imagine my cat saying; "That sounds REALLY,
REALLY good. I'll have some of that!"
Depending on the surface of the bucket, a junkyard paint pen or a
Sharpie broad-tip marker. May need to scuff the bucket with steel wool
and degrease it first, to get either to make legible marks.
It's a bucket. Do the labels really need to be boardroom presentation
