Loaded With Features


Having everything in one case is a lifesaver. Case will also hold 4-5 tape cartridges and 8 extra AA batteries.

Full featured label printer. Includes PC/Mac software to automate label creation and allows TrueType font usage

Simple to use with good results


I didn't think this machine would be able to do all the things I wanted a label maker to do. It has suprised me with the ability to perform multiple tasks with ease. The instructions are easy to understand and well laid out for easy use.
