I have seen self-adhesive panel schedules that were typed. The company information was at the top of the scheudle and all of the branch circuits were identified.

I think the labels are ink-jet printer compatible. All you do is run them thru your printer.

Does anyone have any information about these ? The labels create a very professional looking schedule.

Microsoft's Excel would be a natural for this.

Avery makes white full sheet adhesive labels for both ink jet and laser printers. The ink jet part #8165.

I wonder why the manufacturer's don't have a computer friendly blank panel schedule form on their web site so you could print one that fits in the schedule frame. For all I know they do.
I know the most of commercial jobs I was inspecting usually had some kind of computer generated panel schedule that was taken right off the CAD drawing. Residential was always hand written and usually wrong somewhere if you actually tried it.

My bias is towards using a laser printer. I have found that inkjets tend to fade and will run like no one's business if even a drop of water gets on the paper.

A typed index is a bit more work, and possibly a second trip, but looks great.

I agree on the laser. Toner is carbon based and lasts forever. Ink uses a weaker pigment that will fade. The dot matrix lkabels I printed 10 years ago are not virtually blank.
