About this product:

Featuring a 4 inch width (101.6mm) print head, the QL-1100 offers maximum compatibility with third party shipping label software packages from couriers and parcel delivery companies.

And for sellers who use the Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) service, the “crop-print” feature enables you to print multiple barcode labels contained in the PDF generated by your Fulfilled by Amazon account. The driver detects, extracts and prints each individual label to the QL-1100 automatically, making it easy to mark up your items to be shipped to Amazon.

This printer has full PC and Mac compatibility thanks to its USB connection, and the free P-touch Editor label design software lets you add text, images and barcodes to your labels.

The QL-1100 can easily be integrated into your own systems and software using the Windows SDK (Software Development Kit).

QL-1100 in warehouse printing label

Wide format shipping/barcode label printer

The QL-1100 wide format shipping label printer is the ideal solution for small businesses and those that work from home and need to ship products and parcels. Print high quality shipping labels containing barcodes, images and text.

P-touch Editor label design software with 62mm paper size selected

Works with Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA)

Easily print labels suitable for sending your products to Amazon fulfilment centres using the crop print function in the driver. After Amazon creates your PDF containing the barcode labels for attaching to your products, select the “crop print” function in the print options to automatically extract each barcode label from the A4 sheet and then prints the individual labels from the QL-1100.

4 inch (101.6mm) print width

To ensure maximum compatibility with third party shipping label printing software, the QL-1100 has a print width of 4" (101.6mm) - the specification required by the majority of parcel carriers.

P-touch Editor label design software on a computer monitor

Print from PC and Mac

The free P-touch Editor label design software for PC and Mac lets you add text, images, barcodes and frames to your labels. Link to data contained in an Excel spreadsheet or .csv file, then merge the data onto your label layout to quickly print many labels at once.

Support for Microsoft Office

The P-touch editor add-in for Microsoft Office (Windows only) allows you to select and print data directly from Word, Excel and Outlook. From Microsoft Word, highlight an address and click the add-in, in the toolbar, to print this on a label. Highlight cells in Excel and again click the add-in. For Outlook, select the contact with the address you require to print this label.

Built-in memory to store label templates

Connect directly to specialist equipment using the USB host port - no PC required. These devices can then send commands to select the required label template stored in the printer memory, send the required data to merge onto the label, then issue the command to print. One example is to scan barcodes containing the commands to select and print the built-in templates, to print copies of barcodes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing I had been printing shipping labels on sticker paper, which would never line up to the top edge, so I had to cut them out of the middle of the paper. It was a pain and a waste. Now I press print and the QL-1100 is all like, "I got this" and shoots it out in two seconds. It was super easy for me to set it up. I have a Dell computer. I'm not technically savvy and it was a snap. I love, love, love this printer. I had been on the fence about buying a thermal printer, and I'm kicking myself for waiting this long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT FEATURES! I love it for printing labels, I wish the instructions were better for printing address labels or importing them from an excel format.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good labels, bad system All my first impressions of this printer were great. I followed all the instructions as I unpacked and connected the printer up with my MacOS 11 laptop. I used the P-Touch editor that comes when downloading everything you would seemingly need to operate the printer. I printed my first few labels with the editor and they all came out pretty great except one that I had to crop down. I then was a little curious about the driver for the printer. I was thinking, "there's no way this prints without a driver, right?". Unfortunately, correct. It was so disappointing to realize this printer does not have a driver to connect with my Mac so I could easily print off labels more than one at a time. I originally really liked the printer, and if you're only printing a label here and there where you don't have multiple orders you want to ship at once, this is great. But, if you want a seamless process with a printer driver instead of a separate app, this isn't the label printer I would recommend.
