Just received this product and it is a life changer for seniors or those who do not know the braille language. It is one of the best products for the visually impaired that I have used in a long time.
PenFriend is Terrific!

I just received this product today. I was excited to get it and I am definitely not disappointed! It works very well. I have already labeled medicine bottles, spices, cleaning products and have used them to record things such as software licence and authorization numbers. I am an avid gardner so will label seed packets, too. There will be sticky little labels on everything around here. It's definitely a freedom-giving product. Thank you!

I have the penfriend and I now wonder what I did all those years without it! I became legally blind later in life and had no interest in learning braille. This product has literally changed my life. I have EVERYTHING labeled. I am even thinking of labeling each of my cats to tell them apart(although I don't know if they would enjoy that). The only issue that I can see is that the additional label packs come in different sizes. I wish I could just buy the small round ones. I did just find out that they have laundry labels too, which can be ran through the washing machine and dryer. This is one of the best products on the market for low vision. I am so happy that LS&S carries this and can't say enough good things about it!
