I was really looking forward to using these to label all sorts - including the spine of my ring binders (laminated card), a gift box I use to put all my receipts in, some personal music equipment (the back of an amp) and some tupperware pots. However, these labels stay on for a few minutes they curl and fall off! It is a real disappointment. I think they are only good for sticking on card and paper. I have used double sided tape on some items and sometimes it has stayed on. I really like the look of embossed labels so I hope I can find some that is stronger than these... In the meantime I will have to get creative with these just on card and paper.
