One thing you can do is go out and get a laminator from your
local office supply place - Office Max, etc - and laminate the
laser printer output. About $50 for the heat kind, which works
better than the non-heat kind.
Heat lamination makes a nice rugged label. Trim the edges with
an exacto knife. Unfortunately trimming does allow water/etc
to leak into the edges of the label - [haven't solved this one
BTW, you can also hand-laminate non-heat type labels, but this
is not as good as the heat type laminator. Also, non-heat laminating
does *not* work well with inkjet paper, which has a special
surface coating - the laminate wrinkles up when you glue down
the final label - depending on the glue.
