If you're after a professional finish, make Brother an essential part of your kit today.

Our label printer video lets you discover some of the features and benefits of the various models.

The top six reasons for labelling:

Identification

Leave your work clearly and neatly labelled. Use a Brother P-touch label printer to create labels for: cables and cabling, wires, fuse boxes, faceplates, distribution boards and consumer units. 

Also ideal for: warning and hazard signs, bus duct risers and electrical trunking and conduits.

You can also create labels that contain your contact details (including company logo on PT-E550WVP), to help guarantee work in the future.

Connectivity

Simplify the installation of cables by attaching a Brother durable label to each end of the wire. This helps ensure connections are made correctly and minimises the time taken for troubleshooting and fault finding if there are problems.

By using Brother genuine tapes in your P-touch label printer, you can be assured that labels you create will be legible and stay attached for years to come.

Compliance

The Brother P-touch PT-E550WVP in conjunction with the Cable Label Tool app for Apple and Android devices allows the creation of labels that meet many of the identification requirements of the electrical regulations.

And our strong adhesive tapes meet the Underwriters Laboratories UL-969 standards, while our heat-shrink tube tape meets UL-224 standards.

Maintenance

Any follow-up visits for maintenance or testing are made easier thanks to clearly labelled faceplates, panels, cables and wires, conduits and machinery.

Hazard

Ensuring hazards are identified and appropriate signage applied is a critical. The P-touch PT-E550WVP with its large 24mm tape width produces text that's easy-to-read, and by using yellow or red coloured tape makes signs that are highly visible.

Public Safety Information

Print highly visible general warning signs on demand, wherever and whenever required. Brother fluorescent yellow and orange labels can be used to warn of potential danger, printed and applied immediately to the area of concern.
