Have a look:
the album I used to test this out was Dansco album 8125 Roosevelt dimes

This is page (page 6 and 7 which I bought seperately and added to album)


Close-up of the same 2 pages with a label added to page 7.


What do you all think?

How about free hand calligraphy? Maybe trim off as much as possible of the tape around the print?

I was thinknig that - at least at the ends of the tape. not the top or bottom. Still working out the details, which is why I only did one.

I am open to other comments to get it better..

That's a great idea! Maybe try printing with a sans serif font like Arial or Calibri to match better. I like it!

Looking good!

I have plenty of blank pages that I should label, but have never been motivated to do so. Maybe once they are all filled I will go back and add some labels.

I think I found a font that is much closer.

Using the 'Patch Panel' function on the labeler (yes, I'm a data guy), I measured the distance from one hole to the next - In this case 24mm - set it up for 6 holes and filled in the data..

I think it looks pretty good.

I used a 'Brother P-touch Edge labeler using 6mm (.23") black on clear tape.

With my eyes, the second row looks much more readable.

I agree the second row is much easier on my eyes..

Great solution for adding text to blank pages. This may become even more relevant as the stock of specific replacement pages dwindles.
