The only label maker I have ever been exposed to is at work. It does your basic file folder labels – not really much more than that. I didn’t know that a label maker could be so much more!
The P-Touch Brother label maker (PT-D200) is amazing. I really can’t stop playing with it and unfortunately neither can my children. I need to start hiding it from them.
This label maker is just $39.99 and it is affordable and easy to use. It works with fabric tapes and laminated washable tapes in a wide array of colors. This flexibility makes it a favorite for crafters and DIY folks.
I received the basic black print on white tape and with print on black tape cartridges to review. The labels are perfect for indoor or outdoor use. The label maker has a variety of fonts and font sizes available as well as decorative frames and symbols. It uses tape up to 12mm wide. There is an amazing number of symbols (600) and frames (95) and (12) Deco Mode patterns plus 6 name badge designs. It even has the ability to print 1 or 2 lines of print!
Another great feature – truly great!… is the split tape so it is extremely easy to peel the backing off and apply rather than struggling and getting frustrated trying to remove the backing.
The display clearly shows me what my label will look like prior to printing.
Once printed there is a scissor button to cut the tape in just the right spot.
The first thing I did was use the label maker for a very simple task – stop my children from fighting over these two little wallets they purchased at a yard sale. I didn’t do anything too special – I had literally just opened the box and was trying to stop the bickering…
Next I was working on some secret santa gifts for the kids at school and I had some basic black and white tags that are not at all holiday-like. They are now…
Naturally there is no name on it because it is “secret”. But the holiday wreath, present, bells and snowman make it clear that it is a holiday gift tag.
And then we moved on to personalized ornaments. If you are looking for handmade german ornaments rather than making them check out these German Christmas Ornaments. Every year we add a new set of home made personalized ornaments to our tree. This year we started with empty clear plastic ornaments.
Then we cut down one of their wallet sized school photos and added whatever the kids wanted in to their ornaments. The last piece was to add the decorated label from the label maker.
I am sure we will be creating so much more – this P-Touch Brother label maker (PT-D200) is so incredibly versatile.
