Ok, not necessarily technically relevant but given that you doubtless all need to label stuff up, or may wish to earn some brownie points with your admin team here's a useful company.
... are a firm I came across when I was looking for integrated label sheets for my online ecommerce. That's a whole other story but yesterday I was re-ordering and realised that their pricing for regular sheets of labels was erm... rather good.
Labels arrived today and I had to call to check I wasn't losing the plot but it turns out that the prices quoted really are really for 500 sheets (not just 500 labels) and well... they're cheap. Very cheap.
Having used the integrated label sets now for the last 4 months they're really good quality and definitely going to be getting my other label orders from now on too.. Certainly significant savings over Avery, etc...
In terms of ordering I did warn them I'd be posting up here so they're looking at their pro-forma only policy for schools so you may have to pay before receiving an order. Can't recommend them enough though...
NB: Just to mention as well that at time of writing, not all of their label formats are listed on the laser cut web page. So it's worth contacting them if you don't see what you need.

Cheers will send that up to the admin staff and get them to check the price against the Impega ones we get from Lyreco via the LEAs pre-arraned pricing, it will be tought to beat them as things like stickynotes are something crazy like 8p a pack at times!

No......... we used to use another company for our integrated labels, but we now use them for a mailing campain and ended up saving a small package.

Just as an update as the spam post (rather amusing too) brought this back to the fore..
Depending on which label type you need there's some difference in the tack/stickiness and of course these are not the high security types for asset marking.. That said, integratedlabels.net do provide free samples so definitely worth getting them in advance to check.
At a guess Happy2help is conducting a marketing campaign for the competition and is probably responsible for a large amount of new articles that are appearing with all the right keywords to try and wrestle top position for their client.
I'm all for SEO, but link spamming?! Way to sink to the bottom of the list.
NB: No, I don't get anything for this (employment, cash rewards, pat on back..) ... but spammers deserve a little counter productive "reward" to dissuade them IMHO.

Stock Laser Labels have only two different "tack/stickiness" and the word your looking for is adhesive, either permanent or removable and I have never heard of any label manufacturer who wont provide free samples upon request, it’s an industry standard.

Thank-you for that explanation of "adhesive" ... I think I knew what I was referring to. In this instance my use of the word "Tack" was as a level of adhesion and there are variations across the board with labels that have a high tack adhesive that leave behind the adhesive layer with some of the cellulose (called "paper"). That's something that I find messy myself, especially when used for labelling hardware (kids picking off labels while bored, etc..) while others remain or have a tamper proof substrate that remains as a tell-tale.

You may recommend them yourself but there's a few criteria to be taken seriously with this forum:
- You are an active/established member and not a brand spanking new account
- You work directly with education (this is not a business forum)
- You don't hijack a competitors thread
- You don't start insulting people or their intelligence
I've never used cheap-... myself and may well give them a shot at some point but it'll depend on someone else recommending them under the criteria above and not someone spamming.

'You work directly with education (this is not a business forum)'
Well, excluding the 110+ accounts from workers in the City of London or Google, or Dell and Microsoft.
And the others

We use integrated labels once, but they were massively overpriced compared to other companies (which shall remain nameless) however if they have made pricing more affordable, it may well be worth a look!
