I use for all purposes. I have a roll by the front door to leave a note when going out. I have a roll near the kitchen, so the kids can make pictures and put them on the refrigerator. And of course I have the one in the garage for true painting, but I must admit that is the one that gets used the least. I also use them on Buckets and Baskets and Boxes for LABELING. I think I do that the most. I even organized the neighbors pantry with LABELED baskets. But MOST OF ALL, when I visit a Hospital or REHAB center, I use it to put SIGNS over the patients bed, like PLEASE COFFEE WITH EVERY MEAL. or PLEASE CUT FOOD, only have use of one arm for now. or PLEASE TALK LOUD, Hard of Hearing. I add smiley faces and the signs work great!!!
