Dah, on first reading, I didn't get that you were talking about a "label printer" vs. a simpler labeler. Oh, well, I'll post my answer as an Ode to Lablers. I say get a labeler.

I disagree with the information you found on portable printers. I've got a Dymo LetraTag and it's great. It's cheap, creates good labels and I can buy new supplies in a lot of stores.
