PREFACE
Thank you for purchasing this P-touch!
With your new P-touch, you can create labels for any purpose. Select from a variety of frames, fonts and
character styles to design beautiful custom labels. In addition, the many pre-formatted templates available
make label- and stamp-making quick and easy.
Installing the P-touch Editor software on your computer will provide you with many more illustration and
layout tools to design labels, which can then be printed on your P-touth.
You can print professional-looking labels in no time. The quality and performance of this P-touch make it an
extremely practical machine to meet all your labelling needs.
Although this P-touch is easy to use, we suggest that you read this User's Guide carefully before starting. Keep
this manual nearby for future reference.

EXAMPLES OF WHAT YOU CAN
Before You Start
Quickly create a label for a home video by using the Template function (➩ p. 41). If you
wish, you can then change the overall style of the text (➩ p. 43).
With the New Block function (➩ p. 16), your labels can contain sections with different numbers of lines. In this label, part of the text was formatted using a different
font (➩ p. 25) and a different style (➩ p. 28). In addition, the Barcode function
makes creating and printing barcodes easy.
Decorate your text using the many frames and shadings (➩ p. 32). Then,
just before printing, use the TRANSFORMATION function (➩ p. 54) to
change the shape of the text.
Use the NUMBER (numbering)
function (➩ p. 50) to print several
numbered labels at one time, without changing the text for each label.
You can also invert the printing to
make the light parts dark and the
dark parts light (➩ p. 53).
2
Ch.1 Before You Start
MAKE WITH THIS P-TOUCH
Before You Start
With the Area function (➩ p. 22), you can
select certain parts of the text and change their
font, size and style (➩ p. 25–31). Give your
label a different look by adding one of the 13
different background designs (➩ p. 40). The
[SMALL] and [LARGE] background settings
allow you to create your own background
design.
Create larger labels by enlarging the text and printing it on two,
three or four labels, which can then be put together (➩ p. 56). You
can decorate your label using the 475 symbols and pictures available with the Symbol function (➩ p. 17).
Using clear tape and the MIRROR function (➩ p. 52) to
print in reverse, this sign for a
glass door can be read from
the adhesive side. In this
example, a warning symbol
was added (Symbol function
➩ p. 17), and the entire text
was framed using the Frame/
Shading function (➩ p. 32). In
addition, the label was
printed vertically using the
Vertical function (➩ p. 31).
Create a table using the Frame/
Shading function (➩ p. 32) to put a
box around each line of each block
in the text. Then, use the Area function (➩ p. 22) to format the headings
of the table.

PRECAUTIONS
Getting Started
●
Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not have the
mark.
●
Before installing a tape cassette, be sure that the tape is correctly fed under the tape guides.
●
Do not pull on the tape being fed from the P-touch. Doing so may damage the tape cassette.
●
Avoid using the machine in extremely dusty places. Keep it out of both direct sunlight and rain.
●
Do not expose the machine to extremely high temperatures or humidity.
●
Do not leave any rubber or vinyl on the machine for an extended period of time. Doing so may
cause staining.
●
Do not clean the machine with alcohol or other organic solvents. Only use a soft, dry cloth.
●
Do not put any foreign objects into or heavy objects on the machine.
●
To avoid injuries, do not touch the cutter’s edge.
●
Use only the power supply cord designed exclusively for this machine. Use of any other cord
will void the warranty.
●
When the machine is not being used for a long period of time, disconnect the power supply
cord.
●
A blank horizontal line appearing in a printed label may indicate that there is dust on the print
head. Clean the print head by gently wiping up and down along the print head with a dry cotton
swab. For more details, see page 71.
●
Never try to disassemble the P-touch.

You can store frequently used text in the memory. These text files remain in the memory, even
after all characters are erased from the display
with the Clear function (see page 21).
When each file is stored, it can be given an file
name so that it can be searched for. Up to 100
files or about 3,000 characters can be stored in
the memory.
Since a copy of the stored text file is recalled
when using the OPEN function, the text can be
edited or printed without changing the originally stored file. However, the SAVE function
can be used to replace the previously saved file
with the new edited one. When a file is no
longer needed or more space is necessary, the
DELETE function can be used to delete it.

The backing from labels printed on laminated
tapes can easily be removed if a half cut setting
was used (refer to page 55). However, if a half
cut setting was not used, the backing paper can
be removed by using the enclosed lettering
stick.
1 Hold the tape in your left hand, with the
printed surface facing up, and hold the lettering stick in your right hand.
2 Pass the tape halfway through the long narrow hole in the stick.
3 Turn the stick three quarters of a turn
towards you and pull the stick away from
you as shown below.
4 Peel off the label backing.

In addition to labels, your P-touch can be used
to make custom, pre-inked stamps for various
uses (optional stamp kit required). Simply design
your own customized stamps using one of the
pre-formatted stamp templates, and then affixing
the printed stamp stencil to a self-inking stamp
film holder.
1 Install a stamp film cassette and enter text
into a pre-formatted stamp template. Refer
to pages 41 through 45 for more details on
using templates.
2 Print out the stamp stencil and remove its
backing paper.
3 Remove the frame from around the stamp
holder ink pad, one end at a time, and then
remove the protective seal covering the ink
pad.
NOTE
E
CD
☞ If the stamp holder already contains a stamp
film, hold the stamp over a piece of scrap paper
and remove the stamp frame by pulling it off,
one end at a time. Then, slowly peel off the
stamp film. Be careful that the ink does not
splatter.
AB
Using Labels and Stamps
☞ Keep the stamp film holder out of the reach of
children.

☞ Avoid getting ink in your eyes or mouth. If ink
gets in your eyes or mouth, immediately wash it

in order to prevent ink spills.
☞ Store stamp film holders and stamp film cassettes in a location where they are not exposed
to high temperatures, high humidity or direct

the other side of the stamp holder and hold
it in place with your finger.

Printing an identification label for the stamp
holder
1 Insert a TZ tape cassette into the tape compartment.
NOTE
Use 1/2” (12-mm)-wide tape to make an identification label for an M-size stamp and use 3/4” (18mm)-wide tape to make a label for an L-size stamp.

Stamping
Since the length of time and amount of pressure
that the stamp holder should be held down
depends on the amount of ink in the holder, first
practice stamping on a piece of scrap paper.
You can expect to use a stamp film holder
approximately 300 to 500 times, although some
ink is lost when the stamp film is changed. The
actual life of the stamp film holder will vary
depending on the size and thickness of the characters, whether a shading pattern is used, etc.
NOTE
☞ After stamping, wait until the ink has completely dried before touching it in order to prevent smearing.
☞ If the stamp holder is not pressed straight down,
the stamp may be blurred.
☞ Do not press the stamp holder down too forcefully.
☞ Do not stamp on wet, sticky, rough or uneven
surfaces. Only stamp on paper. The ink will not
dry on plastic overhead projector transparencies and other ink-impermeable objects.
☞ If a stamp made with a new stamp film is faint
or incomplete, even after forcefully pressing
down the stamp holder for up to 30 seconds,
replace the stamp holder with a new one. Do
not try to refill the stamp holder.
