Dymo Label OCD


Started something but never finish it – like a roll of film? Try this Dymo Label modification for your Diana+!

For me, although I’m an impatient little lady sometimes (refer to my LC-A piggy countdown) I can also be a tearaway at starting something and not finishing it!!

After coming across my original Dymo machine at a carboot sale I knew I had to buy it! It was one of those items that was a total bargain and I just “had to have it” but when I got home the shadow of doubt appeared and I was dubious as to why I even bought one. That was until matt explained about the Sunny 16 rule (for the umpteenth time!) and I thought what better for me to do than to make a note… a note in true analogue style!

My label making soon went crazy labelling everything, with anything – ANALOGUE HAS TAKEN OVER! (yay!) But although impatient, I also have the attention span of a 4 year old and with a large collection of analogue cameras I knew I had to find some way of tracking what was on each film, where I’d been, what kind of film, any kind of notes that I needed to make at that time.

P.S. Dymo is great for labelling your Lomo mug at work with how you take your tea/coffee!

    Good article. Look out for label obsession. I knew someone who had to label everything. Her cup said "My Cup", her cat wore a crocheted sweater saying "My Cat", and her children had to stay in rapid motion to avoid sweaters saying, "My Emily" and "My Sally". Hopefully, short attention span will prevent this. Enjoy your Dymo.
    P.S. I'm worse. My attention span is long.
