Yeah buddy! You've got a Grade-A wife for not only allowing you to do this, but voluntarily joining you. If only I could convince my wife that ripping wax is an excellent time to bond, I'd be in the same boat!
You should get a load of packing peanuts for free when your cases arrive, if that helps. I use the Brother QL-500 Thermal Printer, and absolutely love it. I also picked up a Dymo scale from Wally World that measures to the .0X ounce.
Most of all, HAVE A BLAST.
