USER’S GUIDE
• Read this User’s Guide before you start using your P-touch.
• Keep this User’s Guide in a handy place for future reference.
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the P-touch 2350!
Your new P-touch will allow you to create labels and stamps for any need. Its versatility
enables you to design custom labels by choosing from a variety of frame designs and from
many characters sizes and styles. In addition, the five tape widths (1/4” (6 mm), 3/8” (9 mm),
1/2” (12 mm), 3/4” (18 mm), and 1” (24 mm)) and variety of tape colors allow you to print
personalized labels, useful for color-coded filing. With the Stamp function, you can quickly
and easily make stamps for reusable pre-inked stamp holders.
You no longer have to worry about urgent tasks that require professional printing. In the office,
the factory, the lab, and the home, the quality and performance of the P-touch 2350 make it an
extremely practical machine.)

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
• Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not have the
mark.
• Do not pull on the tape being fed from the P-touch. This may damage the tape cassette.
• Do not use the machine in dusty places, and keep it out of both direct sunlight and rain.
• Do not expose the machine to high temperatures or high humidity. Never leave it on the
dashboard or in the back of your car.
• 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. Use a soft, dry cloth only.
• Do not put any foreign objects into or anything on the machine.
• To avoid injuries, do not touch the cutter’s edge.
• Use only the AC adaptor (model AD-60) designed exclusively for this machine. Use of any
other adaptor will void the warranty.
• Do not try to disassemble the AC adaptor.
• When the machine is not being used for a long period of time and it is not necessary to
keep the text files stored in the memory, disconnect the AC adaptor, and remove the batteries to prevent them from leaking and damaging the machine.
• If the AC adaptor is unplugged and no batteries are installed, all text files in the memory
may be deleted.
• Use eight AA alkaline batteries in this machine.

BATTERIES
This lightweight and portable machine can be used anywhere by installing eight (8) AA alkaline batteries. When you change the batteries, always replace all eight at the same time.
To change the batteries:
1 Remove the battery compartment cover on the back of the machine.
2 If batteries are already installed, remove them.
3 Insert eight new AA alkaline batteries, making sure that they face the correct direction.
4 Attach the battery compartment cover.
☞ If alkaline batteries are not used, large fonts cannot be printed.
Be sure to insert the new batteries within five minutes of removing the old ones,
otherwise the text shown in the display and any text files stored in the memory will
be lost (unless the machine is plugged into an AC outlet with the AC adaptor).
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adaptor if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
5
OPTIONAL AC ADAPTOR
The AC adaptor (model AD-60) allows you to use this machine wherever there is an electrical
outlet.
To connect the optional AC adaptor:
1
2
6
Insert the plug on the adaptor cord into the connector marked DC IN 9.5V on the right
side of the machine.
Insert the plug on the adaptor into the nearest standard electrical outlet.
☞ Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adaptor if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
If the AC adaptor is unplugged and no batteries are installed, all text files in the
memory may be deleted.
Only use the AC adaptor designed exclusively for this machine.
It is recommended that you use the AC adaptor when printing large fonts or barcodes on 3/4” (18-mm)- or 1” (24-mm)-wide tape since these operations can
quickly drain the batteries.
TAPE CASSETTE
A single TZ tape cassette is supplied with this unit. However, since TZ tape cassettes are available for this machine in a wide variety of colors and sizes, it is possible to make distinctive
color-coded and stylized labels.
In addition, this machine has been designed to allow you to change the tape cassettes quickly
and easily.
To change the tape cassette:
Lift open the tape compartment cover. The installed cassette is also released.
If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it straight up.
If the ink ribbon in the other tape cassette is loose, use your finger to wind the toothed
wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the ribbon.
Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides.
☞ If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the
stopper.
4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the tape compartment, making sure that the entire back
of the cassette touches the bottom of the compartment.
☞ When inserting the tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on
the corner of the metal guide.
5 Close the compartment cover, then turn on the machine if it is off.

ATTACHING LABELS
LAMINATED TAPE
The enclosed stick enables you to easily remove the backing from labels printed on laminated
tapes.
1 Hold the tape in your left hand, with the printed surface facing up, and hold the 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.

NON-LAMINATED TAPE
Labels printed on non-laminated tapes can be folded in half so that the inside edges of the two
backing pieces come off the label, enabling the backing to easily be peeled off.
8
INSTANT-LETTERING TAPE (RUB-ON TRANSFERS)
Instant-lettering tape is used to transfer your text onto paper. After printing the text onto
instant-lettering tape and cutting off the label, position the label with its non-printed side facing up on a sheet of paper. By simply rubbing the instant lettering tape’s non-printed side with
the enclosed stick, you can transfer the text directly onto the paper.
☞ Hold the tape very firmly and do not move it while rubbing the tape.

IRON-ON TRANSFER TAPE
Iron-on transfer tape is used to transfer your text onto garments using an iron.
Mirror
to print the text, then push down on
C
H
the tape cutter lever to cut off the label.
Iron the garment to flatten it before transferring the text.
Place the label on the garment at the location where you wish the text to be transferred.
Set the iron to cotton (302 to 356 ˚F (150 to 180 ˚C)), then press down on the label with
the iron for about 15 seconds.
Allow the iron-on transfer to cool (for about 60 seconds), and then carefully remove the
backing paper.

☞
White garments made from 100% cotton with a plain (smooth) surface are best for ironon transfers.
You can also make transfers to garments made from 100% linen or cotton/polyester
blends as long as they have a plain (smooth) surface.
The label will not adhere properly to any cloth with a rough surface, such as pile or
denim, or with a waterproof surface. Heat-sensitive materials, such as nylon, acetate or
other similar fibres, are also unsuitable as they may be damaged when pressing with an
iron at a high temperature.
Do not move the iron while pressing, otherwise the label may move out of the desired
position. Press the iron straight down onto the cloth.
After the backing tape has been removed, the transferred label may appear glossy. In
addition, some white spots may have appeared on the label if it was touched while the
backing tape was peeled off. These can be removed by ironing over the label with a
piece of cloth placed between the label and the iron.
Since the transferred label cannot be removed once it is applied, make all transfers with
care.
Washing:
Garments with transfer labels can be washed over 20 times if the label has been transferred
correctly. Normal biological and non-biological household detergents may be used.
The label may become discolored if the garment is placed in bleach for an extended length of
time.
Be careful that hard objects such as buckles or buttons do not come into contact with the label
during the wash.
Do not dry clean garments which have had transfer labels applied.
Drying:
Garments with transfer labels may be dried either inside or outside out.
Do not tumble dry. The transfers will come off and may stick to other items of clothing.
10
Ironing:
Iron garments with transfers using normal temperature settings.
Be sure to place a piece of cloth between the iron and the label when you iron over it to prevent the label from sticking to the iron.
CH
P-TOU
The labels are non-toxic, however, please maintain the usual precautions, such as not placing
them in your mouth, etc.
Do not store the tape cassette in areas exposed to direct sunlight, high humidity or dust.
FABRIC TAPE
Fabric tape is used to attach a piece of fabric printed with your text onto garments using an
iron. After printing the text onto fabric tape and cutting off the label using scissors, place the
label on an ironed garment at the location where you wish to attach it in such a way that the
printed text can be read correctly. Cover the label with another piece of cloth and use an iron
set to a medium-high temperature (320 to 356 ˚F (160 to 180 ˚C)) to press down firmly for 10
to 15 seconds. For more details, refer to the instructions included with the fabric tape cassette.
☞ The label will have a white background on colored cloth.
STAMP TAPE
Refer to pages 62 through 64 for a detailed explanation on using the stamp tape to make
stamps.
11
PRINT HEAD & ROLLERS
Occasionally, specks of dust or dirt become attached to the machine’s print head and rollers.
This is particularly likely when you are using the unit outdoors or in a very dusty environment.
If a section of the print head is covered with dust, a blank horizontal streak may appear
through the label text. Therefore, as with a tape recorder, the machine’s head may need to be
cleaned from time to time.
To clean the print head and rollers:
Turn off the machine.
Open the tape compartment cover, then remove the tape cassette if one is installed. The
print head and rollers are located in the tape compartment.
3 Print head: Use a dry cotton swab to gently wipe the print head with an up-and-down
motion.
Rollers: Use a dry cotton swab to wipe each roller with an up-and-down motion while
rotating them with your finger.
4 Install a tape cassette, close the tape compartment cover, and then try printing again.
5 If dust still remains, repeat steps 3 and 4 using a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
If none of the above works, contact your service representative.

DOOR LABEL EXAMPLE
After you have inserted the batteries and the enclosed tape cassette as explained in the Getting
Started chapter, let’s practice using some of the basic functions of your P-touch. We must first
begin by turning on the power to the machine.

The underline in the LCD display is called the “cursor”. It is like a pointer which shows your
current position and lets you select characters in your text.
The text you create may sometimes be longer than the 11 characters that the LCD display can
show at one time. Therefore, the cursor can be moved to show other parts of the text. Pressing
the left cursor key (
) moves the cursor to the left so that the left side of the text can be
seen and pressing the right cursor key (
) moves the cursor to the right so that the right
side of the text can be seen.
Some format settings are shown by the triangular and square indicators around the edge of the
display. The default settings (the selected settings when the power is turned on for the very first
time) have been pre-programmed into the machine and represent the most common settings
for labels. However, you can design your own label to have any format that you wish. Detailed
explanations of the formats can be found on pages 68 through 82.
Now, let’s enter the text for our first example, the simple door label shown below.

FORMATTING THE TEXT
Now the text is entered as we wish. If it were printed, the standard default settings would be
used. The text would be aligned on the left side with 1 1/24” (25 mm) margins and would not
be framed or underlined. In addition, the characters would be auto-sized (AUTO) and printed
using the HELSINKI font and NORMAL style settings. For more details concerning format settings, please see pages 68 through 82.
For this label, though, let’s assume we want a different style of text: BRUSSELS font, framed,
and printed with 1/6” (4 mm) margins (NONE). Therefore, we must change the format.

Each time the number of lines in a section of the text changes, a new block of text must be created. Therefore, the text for our label must be entered in three separate blocks.
Since we will now change from a one-line to a three-line block, we will use the New block
function instead of a normal return. The new block mark (
) indicates the end of a block.

FORMATTING THE TEXT
Now that we’ve entered all of the text, we can start formatting it. Next, let’s use the Local format function to change the style of the shelf number (B1) in order to emphasize it. The Local
format function is used to select a part of the text so that it can be formatted with a font, size,
width, style, underline or frame setting that is different from the rest of the text. Since only the
characters in the text block containing the cursor will have a different format, we must first
move the cursor to the first block.

of our text while automatically increasing the shelf number after each label is printed. For

label can easily be changed by selecting one of the seven available style formats, and then the
label is ready to be printed. The many layouts available allow you to create labels for a variety
of needs—from addressing envelopes to identifying floppy disks or audio and video cassettes.
Refer to Reference at the end of this section for a list and samples of the available layouts.

SIZE & WIDTH FUNCTIONS
The character size can be adjusted using both the Size and Width functions. Since the character size that can be used depends on the width of the tape, the following table shows the character sizes that can be used with each tape width.

6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48
The default size setting is AUTO and the default width setting is MEDIUM. The currently
selected size setting is always shown by the indicator above the display. In addition, all of the
size indicators light up when the AUTO setting is selected. When either the NARROW or
WIDE width setting is selected, the Width indicator lights up.
With the AUTO size setting, the machine compares your text with the width of the installed
tape and automatically adjusts the characters to the largest possible size. However, seven
other point sizes are also available and each can be printed in narrow or wide characters.
Refer to Reference at the end of this section for samples of the available settings.

FULL (1 1/24” (25 mm) margins)
NONE (1/6” (4 mm) margins)
NARROW (1/3” (8 mm) margins)
MEDIUM (1/2” (12 mm) margins)
☞ When a setting other than FULL is selected, extra tape is fed out before printing starts.

LENGTH FUNCTION
Although the length of the printed label automatically adjusts to fit the length of the entered
text, there may be times when you will want to make a label with a specific length. The Length
function allows you to set the label length between 1.6 and 11.8 inches (4.0 and 30.0 centimeters).
The default length setting is OFF. When the Length function is set to ON, the Length indicator

BARCODE FUNCTION
The Barcode function, which enables barcodes to be printed as part of labels, is one of this
machine’s most advanced features.
☞ This section will explain how to enter a barcode into your text. It is not intended as a
comprehensive introduction to the concept of barcoding. For more detailed information,
please consult one of the many reference books available.
Since this machine is not specifically designed for special barcode label-making, some
barcode readers may not be able to read the labels.
Print barcodes with black ink on a white background.
Four different parameters enable you to create custom barcodes.

NUMBERING FUNCTION
This function can be used to print many copies of the same text while increasing certain characters (letters, numbers or barcode data) after each label is printed. This type of automatic
incrementation is very useful when printing serial number labels, production control labels or
other labels requiring ascending codes.
Letters and numbers increase as shown below:
0
➔ 1
➔ ...9
➔ 0
➔ ...
A
➔ B
➔ ...Z
➔ A
➔ ...
a
➔ b
➔ ...z
➔ a
➔ ...
A0 ➔ A1 ➔ ...A9 ➔ B0 ➔ ...
Spaces (shown as underlines “_” in the examples below) can be used to adjust the space
between characters or to control the number of digits that are printed:
_9 ➔ 10 ➔ ...99 ➔ _0 ➔ ...
_Z ➔ AA ➔ ...ZZ ➔ _A ➔ ...
1_9 ➔ 2_0 ➔ ...9_9 ➔ __0 ➔ ...
☞ Only one numbering field can be selected from any text.
If you include a non-alphanumeric character such as a symbol in the numbering field,
only the letters and numbers in the numbering field will be increased when the labels
are printed, or just one label will be printed if the field only contains a non-alphanumeric character.
To use the Numbering function:

MEMORY FUNCTIONS
You can use the memory to store your most frequently used text files. The text remains in the
memory, even after all characters are removed from the display using the Clear function (see
page 45).
When each file is stored, it is given a number to make recalling it easier. Up to 100 text files or
about 2500 characters can be stored in the memory.
Since a copy of the stored text file is recalled when the Recall function is used, the text can be
edited or printed without changing the originally stored file. When a file is no longer needed or
more space is necessary, the Memory delete function can be used to delete it.
☞ When inserting new batteries, be sure to insert the new ones within five minutes of
removing the old ones, otherwise any text files stored in the memory will be lost (unless
the machine is plugged into an electrical outlet with the AC adaptor).

Solution
1. The display stays blank after you have
turned on the machine.
• Check that the AC adaptor is connected
correctly.
• If you are using alkaline batteries, check
that they are correctly inserted.
• If the batteries are low, replace them
with new ones.
2. The machine does not print or the printed
characters are blurred.
• Check that the tape cassette has been
inserted properly.
• If the tape cassette is empty, replace it
with a new one.
• Make sure that the tape compartment
cover has been closed.
• Ensure the correct Brother AC adapter is
used-other adapters cannot supply
enough current for printing.
3. The text files that you stored in the memory are no longer there.
• If the batteries are low, replace them
with new ones.
4. The printed characters are not formed
properly.
• If you are using alkaline batteries, they
may be low. Try using the AC adaptor or
replace the batteries with new ones.
• Ensure the correct Brother AC adapter is
used-other adapters cannot supply
enough current for printing.
5. A blank horizontal line appears through
the printed label.
• Clean the print head as explained on
page 12.
6. Striped tape appears.
• If you have reached the end of the tape,
