    You’re welcome Ken;)

    Hey Barry,
    I use a Deskjet 3520 and a cheap guillotine or scissors to cut the paper. I’ve also used adhesive transparent backing to “laminate” the surface on the last batch I did, gave a nice tough finish to the labels:)

    Thanks,
    Robbocurry.

    Since I don’t really feel like learning AI right now, can you tell me how to alter the background color, e.g., turn a gray to red?

    I just received my QU-24 this week. What a great mixer!!! Anyway, I’ve been printing magnetic labels for my mixers for some time now so I made some up for the QU-24. I use MS Word tables to create the labels. It’s easy and fast. I print them on 8.5 X 11 magnetic sheets for inkjet printers that I buy at Staples (I live in the USA). I’ve attached a couple of pictures and the Word doc with my label template.

    Sweet!
    I’m gonna have to pinch your design Tom;)

    Barry:
    Click on the box you want to change colour.
    Once highlighted click on corresponding coloured box on the top left of the toolbar.
    New colours will then appear, select the new colour you want.
    Same applies if you click select text to change it’s colour.
    Hope that helps:)

    James – ta:)

    thanks, I found the magnetic paper is not that sticky. It sticks better if it is a larger piece.

    I’m with Barry,
    how do you cut the printed magnetic material?

    James,

    Can you describe the adhesive transparent backing produce and process that you have used?

    The backing material is often referred to as “sticky back plastic” or “book backing plastic” here in the UK. I use it to put a protective transparent cover on my daughter’s school books. You peel off the backing, press and rub it on. Putting it on before cutting the magnetics gives me the neatest results.

    Another name in the USA is self adhesive laminating sheets.

    Hey guys thanks to both of you. These are brilliant. I just got my QU-24 and was bumming on the lack of LCD scribble strips, but these look awesome

    I got all the strips on one 8.5×11″ page in Word. . .

    Magnetic printer paper? Are we actually living in the future? How have I not known about this technology?
