By print, you mean 3D print?
Are there specific wording/labels you are looking for?

I've been wanting to try this out, for standard and mini T-Loc, however it hasn't been a priority and therefore hasn't gotten done yet in my workshop.

I've had great luck using a P-Touch labeler with their .94" labels for printing on the T-loc latches.  They have smaller sizes you could easily use on the smaller T-Locs.

You can change the tape size or the labels.  I use black type on clear tape and it pops better than anything I've seen from across the room in identifying tools.

Amazon and most office supply stores carry the P-Touch brand and varying tape options.

Highly recommended!

Yes, 3d printed.

Would like 4
.223    45ACP   9mm   MC

Found the mini's fit  my range bag and I save alot of space dumping them into a container.

good idea, if I can't get them printed label maker would work

By chance did you look at submitting files to Shapeways to 3D print?

This is tempting me to get a new (more reliable) 3D printer as I'd love to be able to offer something like this.

I tried 3D printed labels on Systainer t-locs and found the raised print broke off easily.  A member on FOG offered them for a fee and I purchased maybe 20.  I'd say half of them failed with usage. 

So I abandoned them and went to labels.

thats pretty cool, but no. As far as objects go the latch is probably pretty basic but learning some software and getting the measurements right would prob take more time than I want to put into it.

I'm leaning more to labels now too, the text doesnt have to be on the latch

ok, I'm a facebook idiot.

From the systainer store website I click on an f image to get to here but can't figure out how to get to the facebook page for the systainer store.

https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fsystainer.store%2Fproducts%2Fmini-systainer-t-loc-i

when I do a facebook search for systainer store or systainer.store , it doesnt come up

Hi @zapdafish I'm not clear on what you are attempting to do specific to Systainer.Store.  As far as Facebook goes, we don't have a Facebook page.  That hasn't been an avenue we wanted to interact with our customers, perhaps we should, though I'm a bit shy of Facebook.  That being said, we are on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, though I don't have to expose my personal information on in order to have the company represented there.

I'm new to Facebook and couldn't figure out how to get to your page but now I know why. I assumed clicking on the F would bring me there. As far as I know I've never been to Instagram. I decided to go with labels so ordered a bunch of mini's from you.

Thank you for your order, I appreciate the support. 

Do be sure to post picture of the labels you make.
