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).

  • Windows SDK (Software Development Kit) available to add label printing to your own apps

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.

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

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

Software Development Kit 

Easily incorporate the QL-1100 into your existing legacy software. Brother b-PAC is a free SDK (software development kit) for Windows based applications.

Large range of labels for any application
