Ooooh, labels in lasers.......... I worked for a large medical organisation that printed a sheet of 16 sticky address labels for every appointment. (Yeah they used two and chucked the rest away!)

The Dell monochrome lasers of the day were ex IBM/Lexmark designs with a convoluted paper path.The real issue was the 180 degree turn after the fuser. And possibly the cheapo labels we used. Heat and cheap labels meant regular service calls. I could strip one of those babies down in no time at all! Took hours to get the labels out of the rotating bits mind.

Eventually replaced them with...........Dell colour lasers! Bit straighter, but much longer paper path that left labels in the paper input side!
