Have you ever seen those little black labels with white raised letters that it seems every home organization influencer uses? Here’s the secret behind those aesthetic little labels.
The DYMO Embossing Label Maker is the tool every home organization influencer ever uses in their home, and it’s easy to see why. The gadget creates sleek labels with a vintage, imperfect look that adds charm (and clear organization) to your home.
And DYMO actually has vintage roots to back up the look. The label brand launched in 1958, with handheld machines that crafted those same black labels with raised white lettering. The label-making gadget received updates over the years, but the classic look of the actual labels remained.
“The vintage look of these labels is absolutely perfect,” one buyer writes.
To use the label maker, just punch out the word you want to type letter by letter by rotating the wheel to each letter and clicking the lever. With each lever-click, the machine will emboss each letter on the plastic label tape. After completing the word, cutting off the tape and peeling off the protective backing, you can stick the label on anything — spice jars, folders, drawers, DIY projects and more.
“I really love this label maker. I love it for it quirks and misaligned lettering. I’m not someone who wants perfection in everything,” another customer wrote. “If you want something thtat gives you that creative edge, this is the label maker for you.”
Getting ready for a thorough spring clean? This is the single device you need to make your entire home perfectly organized.
