Stick Labels in Your Cameras

Everyone has their own preference of personalizing their cameras; skin mods, custom paint jobs, additional stickers, etc.

Let’s say you and a bunch of other Lomographers get together after a day’s worth of shooting. I’m sure there are instances where we huddle our cameras on the table, maybe to strike up a conversation or at least to show off a bit. We generally own the same tools of the trade so to avoid any mix-ups, we need to differentiate our camera from others.

I instead choose to tag my cameras using plastic labels. These come with embossed lettering and peel-off adhesive that is available in a multitude of colors and designs. Label makers are affordably-priced at your local store, especially the ones selling stationery and office supplies. Simply turn the dial to choose the letters, numerals or symbols you wish to be printed, press firmly on the handle and it automatically clicks to the next space. Snip the label off when you’re done. Once adhered, the result is a classic feel that matches our low-fidelity passion.

    Be careful where you stick your labels, though. I stuck a label on my classic Rolleiflex Automat and it left a mark when I later pulled it off. ( I use labels to show the film type and ISO.)
