I found that these tapes ran out kind of fast, or maybe that was just because I was printing out a bunch of labels purely out of excitement. Either way, I think $6~ is a reasonable price for a pack of 3 tapes that have gone out of style for the most part. I am glad I purchased this with the label maker because I ran out of the tape that came in the machine on the first or second day. The tape peels easily off of the backing, and it has yet to even lift off of the surfaces I have placed them on. Loading it into my label maker was very easy and mess-free.
