I couldn’t find my box of sabots. Chris had turned up with his Picts based for DBx but I use Big Bases so I needed my big base sabots. Where were they? Or that Russian Church I know I have? Or the Goumier? Every time the guys turn up I found I’ve lost something. In one of hundreds of boxes that all look very similar. The answer: labels using my DYMO LabelManager Wireless Label Printer.
I got a DYMO LabelManager Wireless Label Printer back in 2017 but never used it. You see I ran into a compatibility problem with the DYMO software and my Mac and by the time I solved that problem, I’d lost interest. But with my new found motivation to label the world, I dug out my printer and found it was all really easy.
To do this, I needed:
1 x DYMO LabelManager Wireless Label Printer
1 x DYMO Label Light.app
5 x Dymo D1 Standard Self-Adhesive Labels for LabelManager Printers, 24 mm x 7 m – Black Print on White
Yes, that is 35 metres (115 feet) of labels! I have a lot of boxes.
I went for 24mm wide so I could have two lines of text without undue cramping.
I used their simple application: DYMO Label Light.app. This only does wired printing, and not wireless, but for my purposes that is fine. I don’t need the printer connected all the time.
If you want wireless on WIFI then you’ll have to get one of the more sophisticated applications working, both of which I couldn’t get to play nicely with my Mac:
DYMO LabelManager Wireless PnP.app
The labelled boxes
So there they are, my impressive array of labelled boxes. And just between you and me … I still have some more boxes to label.

Now that is a wargamers stash. Sean
My stuff is similarly arranged but I have deeper racking so there is room for another row of RUBs turned sideways behind. That is where things still get lost!
Damn….that be a pile of boxes there young man!
Jeepers Steven, that’s a lot of gear. Where do you keep your family?
The family are stored in one of the bigger boxes on the floor. Labelled

Hahahaha brilliant. That’s a mighty fine collection. The RUBs alone must be worth a small fortune!
Ah, now I know why Really Useful Boxes are still solvent…..
Very nice. I skipped the Mac part and just went with a small Label Maker devise. How to store terrain is currently my organizing task.
