Picture of DIY film DX code labels

Do you have a stuborn film camera that takes the ISO information from the DX code on the canister?
Do you want to push/pull your film, but your camera doesn't let you override the ISO value?
Did you buy cheap film with no DX encoding in the canisters?

I have the solution for you!

Some might scrape the paint to uncover the metal contacts. However, I find it very time consuming.
I prefer to make DX labels and stick them to the canisters.
