  • Brother Labeler - which model?

    Does anyone know what particular model Brother P-Touch Labeler DA recommends, if any, and why?

    Do any of you have your own recommendations on a labeler, or good/bad experiences you could report on specific manufacturers/models?

    Thanks for any input - I want to get a labeler soon, but want to get what will work best.

        Labeler

        I would also recommend the Dymo Letra Tag 2000 over the Brother P-touch.

        It's cheaper.
        It's smaller.
        Best of all, when using the white paper labels, they are the easiest to peel and stick to the folder.

        Peeling off the backing of a Brother label seems to be the most time consuming part of the process.

        You can find them at any Kmart, Walmart, etc...

          A Brother labeler has a labelpeeler. Just pull the label out of it, and you can peel the label easily.

              Where is the peeler? Getting these stupid labels peeled is driving me nuts.

              Thanks

                I have a Brother P-touch 65. This one has on the right a labelpeeler (it's marked with an arrow). What you have to do is: Push the label in the labelpeeler. Then pull it down and out of the peeler. After that, a short piece of the label will be split. Now, you easily peel it.

                  Labeler DA uses

                  As of this writing we've found the best Brother to be the PT-15. It's about $100 and you have to get it online (not available in the stores). It's fast, solid, easy. You can get it at Provantage.com

                    I too have a PT-65, but it does not seem to be equiped with the peeler. On the side opposite the tape feed is a spot to hook a strap, but nothing else. I have a Dymo labeler at work, and it has a split down the middle of the tape baking that easily peels away. I wish Brother would make tape that did that. Oh well.

                      Above the powerbutton there is a slot with an arrow. It's also above the cordhanger. There, you have to push your label in. Then, you to pull it down and out of the slot.

                        The ptouch 1750 is only $50. I believe DA recommends "the cheapest brother labeller that has a port for an AC adapter" The brother ptouch 1750 was exactly that at office depot last week. BTW the AC adapter has proven to be tough to track down. But my 6 batteries (radio shack brand) have lasted my entire overhaul process and still ticking.

                          I prefer the 2310 - with PC interface

                          I prefer the Brother PTouch 2310 for file labels, I was given the Sieko labelmaker which is great for a variety of labels, but for file labels I bought a few PTouch 2300 and 2310 for different offices I have set up.

                          I recommend getting a model that has the computer USB interface if you are comfortable witha computer - it is far easier to type on any computer keyboard over any labelmaker keyboard (although the QWERTY keyboard on the PTouch does make the palable), plus you can get fancy, and save templates to make the process more fun and store more information on the labels.

                          I use 3/4" labels on the PTouch for file labels to get the biggest text possible.

                              Brother PT2610

                              I am happy with the Brother PT2610 for file labels, mostly because it allows you to use Avery label tape (which doesn't have any "peeling" issues). It cost about $130 at Staples. You might do better online at www.shopper.com.

                              We also have a small $30 Brother labeler at home, which hasn't been nearly as useful because it only uses laminated tape.

                              The 2610 took about a half-hour to get used to its templates and zero in on the one that I now use all the time. It was time well spent.
