Having just managed to print labels on herbarium paper for
formalin preserved samples using a laser printer, I now wonder how
well these labels will hold up over the long term. I have heard that
letters may lift off of the paper over time. I have also heard that
dot matrix printers may be superior to laser printers for this purpose
because they press the ink into the paper. Does anyone have any
experience using laser printed labels in formalin preserved samples?
I will be delighted to hear any comments or suggestions and will share
any comments with the list if there is interest.
Many thanks in advance.
