Size: 1.015"x0.335"Model Number: XPS-187-1 Verified Purchase
Pretty much mandatory for me to use something like this to label my control panel wires. Fits well on AWG #18-12 type MTW or THHN wire. I don't know of a better solution. I have had one reel jam midway through, but probably 20+ reels that worked just fine. Much better price than say Grainger.

Size: 1.015"x0.439"Model Number: XPS-250-1 Verified Purchase
I've ordered several of these for wire labling. Most of these work with no problems, but I have had 2-3 that wont work at all. Either the print is faint to poor, or the lables don't feed

Size: 1.015"x0.645"Model Number: XPS-375-CONT Verified Purchase
I bought one of these from Amazon and while I like my Brady IDEXPERT printer and most of the labels, the XPS-375-CONT was unable to print since the roll of labels inside was internally jammed up. Basically dead on arrival. This is a ~$65 purchase down the tubes. Unfortunately I had it sitting around in the box for about six months before I opened it so I don't think it can be returned.
