I’m not sure about your era but during my childhood days, this gadget is very common in households or offices. If you find this familiar, we can probably guess your age! Haha. I remember we once own a DYMO in our family (and now I totally regret throwing it away because I so digging vintage now!) and we would label everything with this! Water bottles, pencil case, books, you name it, we got one on it! My sister and I had a lot of fun turning the wheel, clicking away and sticking random embossed labels in the house.

It started with an all metal labeller.

DYMO is an American company that manufactures label makers among other things and it was founded in 1958 to produce handheld tools that use embossing tape. Over various decades, the company changed hand a couple of times and this manual labeller is slowly being faced out with electronic labeller. I would love to own a vintage DYMO one day!

For now, I am just satisfied with my new gadget, a modern DYMO from our popular bookstore! I chose this because it looks more hardy and the additional wheels with cute fonts are hard to resist. It is three times the price of a Motex, another popular embossed label maker from Korea. This will be perfect in labelling Polaroids and doing random crafts and scrapbooks! I can’t wait!

    I love the DYMO labelmakers! But the price should be rather expensive :( I stopped buying them though.
