Brother P-touch Label Maker (review & giveaway)



Brother is a company that makes all sorts of items to help make your life easier. Their line includes items like printers, fax machines, sewing machines, and labelers. CIMG0479

For this review, I was sent the P-touch PT-1290 which is a labeler from their “Simply Stylish” line. I have to say, I’m thrilled with this labeler and have already put it to good use.

This labeler has wonderful features that allow you to make all sorts of different styles of labels. I made some basic labels for my cube storage and also added symbols to the labels I made for my son’s toys or sippy cups and my daughter’s bottles. I felt they added a cute touch and also allowed me to easily find their label just by looking for the star or the heart.

Here is what I was able to do with my cube storage:

With the storage boxes clearly marked, I don’t have to worry about not knowing which box is holding which item(s). Also, I don’t have to worry about toys ending up in the wrong place. These labels will help me keep my home in order with little work.

Also, the P-touch PT-1290 makes professional style labels. Of course, when I saw these styles, I had to make one for my blog and my file box. Here’s the finished product.


Here are some other features included in the labeler (taken from the website).

  • 15 Deco Mode Patterns to create extra-stylish and decorative labels
  • 2 Professional Fonts
  • Prints labels up to 1/2" wide on laminated indoor/outdoor “TZ” series tapes
  • Easy-view, 15-character LCD display
  • Professional Deco Mode layouts accommodate two rows of text
  • Prints 1 or 2 lines of crisp text
  • 6 Auto Formats and 7 Framing Options
  • Built-in memory, saves up to 9 of your favorite labels
  • Automatically adjusts text size based on tape width
  • Uses 6 “AAA” batteries or optional AC adapter (neither included)

    This is something I would recommend for any household or office. It’s very easy to use and would make organizing so much easier.

    BUY IT:  You can buy the P-touch PT-1290 for around $39.99.
