People often ask me if life with four kids is crazy and I won’t lie, it is rather busy but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love my big family and there are lots of small things you can do to make life a bit easier and your days run a tad smoother. Being organised is the key and something as little as a label can make a big difference.

LabelWorksName labels help the kids recognise their bottles and lunch boxes while content labels make it easy for them to find the right art and craft supplies in the playroom (less mess to tidy up!) and pantry labels help me grab school snacks and dinner ingredients without wasting time. Creating and printing your own customised labels is now easier than ever with this clever gadget from the printing experts at Epson:

The Epson LabelWorksTM 600P Label Printer (RRP $129) is a small, portable label printer that can be controlled from your desktop PC (using the included USB cable) or smartphone/tablet using Bluetooth making it ideal for busy parents on-the-go. The compact Epson LabelWorksTM 600P operates on batteries so you can easily carry the unit around the house, garage, office and caravan and print as you go, or you can plug in the included AC adaptor.

Using the handy Epson iLabel App (which is free to download from the Apple App Store or Google Play) you can create and print personalised stick-on labels, iron-on name tags, barcodes, date labels, QR code stickers, custom gift ribbons and much more, all from the comfort of your couch. There are several different speciality labels to choose from in fun colours and finishes to suit your project and taste perfectly.

Setting up the Epson LabelWorksTM Label Printer was a piece of cake and took less than a minute. First I clicked in the label tape (a sample size tape is included) and made sure the end of the roll was fed through the print opening. Then I downloaded the iLabel App, turned on bluetooth on my iPad and the printer so they could connect to each other. Et voila, you’re ready to print!

Personalised gift ribbons

Aside from the compact size and ease of use there is plenty more to love about the Epson LabelWorksTM 600P Label Printer. One of our favourite features is the ability to print labels with your own handwriting. It’s so simple even the kids can do it and the end result is really sweet, it’s a great way for children to claim ownership of their belongings. Or imagine wrapping a gift with a ribbon showing your child’s handwritten message, such a personal touch. You can add symbols, borders and even photos too, once you get started you’ll never want to print a plain label again.

Organise your 'Art & Craft'

Organise your ‘Art & Craft’

As a budget-conscious parent I very much appreciate the fact that you can view your design before you print it so you can check spelling and placing and avoid mistakes. At the same time Epson LabelWorks offers a significantly smaller lead margin (up to 60%) compared to other brands and you can manually set the length of your label up to the millimetre which means a lot less waste and more economic use of your labels.

Handy iLabel App for 'printing on-the-go'

The printer is automatically set to print one label but you can change the quantity to suit your needs, individual labels will be neatly cut by the built-in automatic cutter. You can also save your designs to print them again later if you were to need some more which keeps things neat and uniform and saves you precious time.

Disclosure: I received a free Epson LabelWorksTM 600P Label Printer to test and write about.
