    Brother P-Touch label printer cartridges.

    Good morning ladies and gents. For those who use a Brother labeller, do you use genuine cartridges or compatibles? And where do you get them? Cheers.

    to label or fault when carrying out EICR

    a question that i have to ask sorry if it seems daft in advance, when carrying out a PIR,EICR you come accross boards that dont have labels on them , do you put this on report as code 3 ? or do you just take the time to put a new label on the board ( assuming you have them to hand)

    100 x Swift CD1510P Personalised Circuit Details Label - Does anyone have an idea how I would be able to write these up on a computer and print them off? Would look rough hand written IMO. Cheers

    Dual colour warning labels

    So do you stick them on CU? Are they necessary? Are they a waste of time and materials. Cards on the table - I think we should boycott them completely!

    Commercial Office labelling

    Hi guys. I've just wired an office from scratch, my first one. Was wondering if it would pay for me to label each socket as for what circuit it is on or is that going over board? I know if I ask my boss he'll say don't bother because I know what he's like but I would rather make a good job great.
