The label maker does successful make labels but the construction of the unit does let it down somewhat. I'm scared to press too hard on the lever needed to emboss the label in fear that it will just give up. Sometimes during label making, the wheel will jam up and needs some levering to get it working again and you do have to push down on the lever quite hard to get a decent imprint. Despite all of these issues, it still does make labels and it works but beware, it does get quite addictive.
I would recommend it if you want to make some easy to read labels without splashing out on larger, more expensive machines.
