[BCAB] Pen Friend question

Hi,

I'd suggest something like plant labels so that you could stick the
Penfriend label to the plant one and tie the plant label to the freezer bag
or, of course, stick it to a box with tape.  This way the plant and
Penfriend label are reusable.

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.

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.
