Great machine

 

I like to have a sewing machine available to make quick repairs and simple projects. This machine is great.

Easy To Use

Instant love!

 

Got this this thing as a stand in in case our bar code printer system goes out (a $1000 plus Zebra printer) but it's going to get much more use than that. Far exceeded my expectations.

Love this labeler! Tons of label choices... colors, sizes, tamper evident, extra strong adhesive, fat labels, skinny labels, it's got lot's options. Easy to use software that's very flexible. Any font style, size, graphics, it even can integrate with...

Labels are a tiny bit more expensive than some labels and you may have to Google search for the more exotic labels at a good price

I looked at Google's shopping reviews before buying, reviews looked good.

All Labelers are not created equal.

 

We just got our unit on Friday and already it has proven invaluable. I work in a school library and often we have to create our own spine labels for the books. This little labeler is quick, easy to use, and the quality of print is great. Overall, we...

Use of TP-1280

 

I suggest that Brother make it shorter to save tapes in the next Label Maker generations.

This device is easy to use. I mastered it within 1 hour of use. If you use an AC adapter, you can save a lot of money on batteries

The tap is too long that wastes the tape unecessarily
