Hi. I've used the foil for labels on boxes. It works pretty well,
although I don't know about its longevity. I have found that the foil
works somewhat better if it is adhered with an iron, rather than run back
through the laser printer! And make sure you cover the foiled label with
wax paper before boning it down.
