Flag label tips
■ When labeling cables with a flag label,
set a specific length for the label. If you
use the “Auto” feature, the text will be too
close to the center of the label and you
will not have enough extra tape to wrap
around the cord.
■ When adhering the flag label to the
cable, loop the label around the cord
loosely and stick the ends of the label
together, then move inwards toward the
cable. This makes it easier to align the
ends.
■ Add an extra inch or more to your flag
label to allow enough blank label to wrap
around the cord.
■ The starting and ending half-inch of
empty label cannot be reduced. To
remove them, trim the excess label.
■ If space is limited, use narrower tapes
(such as 9 mm and 6 mm widths).
Cable and Wire Management | 21
cable.book Page 22 Wednesday, May 22, 2013 3:25 PM
Wrapped labels
Wrapped labels are useful for tight spaces
where flags are too large or only a short
identifier is necessary.
Wrap label tips
■ For small cables (1-2 mm), use a flag label
to increase readability.
■ If you only have a single line of text,
repeat it on multiple lines to improve
readability.
■ Use multiple labels on a single cord to
include more information.
■ Include a label on both ends of the cable.
2. Press
until you see Wrap, then press
to select it.
■ Do not use a regularly printed label
(lengthwise) as a wrapped label —
bending the cord will eventually cause
the label to detach from the cord.
3. Press
.
■ Use reflective labels in dark locations
where visibility is limited.

thirty (30) days from the date of original purchase, in the
case of its consumables or accessories. Consumables
include label and tape rolls and cassettes. Accessories
include an AC adapter. For consumables, the warranty
covers only mechanical defects in workmanship and

you use an address in the United States, Canada, or
Puerto Rico. Shipments to other locations will be made
freight collect. You are responsible for securely
packaging the defective unit and returning it to Epson
within five (5) working days of receipt of the
replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card
