[BCAB] Pen Friend question

Any tips on re-using the labels? As in resticking them to things, rather
than re-recording them? I have things in the freezer for example that I'd
like to label, but which probably won't be easy to remove a label from.


Léonie.

In my experience, as each label is re-recordable anyway, you can just stick
with the same set for each purchase and record over the original voice tag.
so I don't know why they've bothered giving each new set of codes a
different identity.
