[BCAB] Pen Friend question

Don't understand what Ibrahim means about labels being configured.  I've been using my Penfriend, a very valuable tool I must add, but I've always used which ever labels, from which ever pack I needed to identify items and correspondence.  The reason, as far as I know, for the alphabetic labelling of the packs is because each pack comprises various sizes of labels.

Hope this is of some help.

My old Voila! Has finally given up the ghost, so I’ve ordered a Pen Friend
from RNIB. I’m a bit puzzled by the notice that I should only use “one pack
of the same labels” though.

Does this mean once I’ve used up the small round circle labels that the Pen
Friend comes with, I can’t use any more of that shape from another pack of
labels? Or do I have to use all the labels in the pack that’s included,
before I can use any labels from an additional pack?

If anyone can shed some light, I’d be most grateful. Thanks.
