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.
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-touch.
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. 57). If you
wish, you can then change the overall style of the text (➩ p. 58).
With the New Block function (➩ p. 27), your labels can contain sections with different numbers of lines. In this label, part of the text was formatted using a different
font (➩ p. 40) and a different style (➩ p. 43). In addition, the Barcode function
makes creating and printing barcodes easy.
Decorate your text using the many frames and shadings (➩ p. 47). Then,
just before printing, use the TRANSFORMATION function (➩ p. 69) to
change the shape of the text.
Use the NUMBER (numbering)
function (➩ p. 65) 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. 68).

Ch.1 Before You Start
MAKE WITH THIS P-TOUCH
Before You Start
With the Area function (➩ p. 38), you can
select certain parts of the text and change their
font, size and style (➩ p. 40–47). Give your
label a different look by adding one of the 13
different background designs (➩ p. 55). 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. 71). With the currency conversion function, you can quickly
convert a price into a different currency (➩ p. 31). In addition, you can decorate your label
using the 475 symbols and pictures available with the Symbol function (➩ p. 27).
Using clear tape and the MIRROR function (➩ p. 67) 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. 27), and the entire text
was framed using the Frame/
Shading function (➩ p. 47). In
addition, the label was
printed vertically using the
Vertical function (➩ p. 46).
Create a table using the Frame/
Shading function (➩ p. 47) to put a
box around each line of each block
in the text. Then, use the Area function (➩ p. 38) 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 89.
●
Never try to disassemble the P-touch.

IMPORTANT - Wiring Information
If the power cord supplied with this product is not suitable for your electrical outlet,
remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three pin plug. If the replacement plug is intended to take a fuse, then fit the same fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the power cord, then it should be destroyed because a
plug with cut wires is dangerous if plugged into a live socket outlet. Do not leave it where
a child might find it.
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to BS1362 with the
same rating as the original fuse.
Getting Started
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRODUCT MUST BE PROPERLY EARTHED.
This wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Ground
Blue:
Neutral
Brown:
Live
The colours of the wiring in the power lead of this product may not correspond with the
markings which identify the terminals in your plug. If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord’s outer sheath, taking care not to damage the coloured insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction of the plug permits, leave the green and yellow wire longer than the others so that, in the event that the
cord is pulled out of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug marked
with the letter “E” or by the earth symbol, or coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter “N” or
coloured black or blue.
The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter “L” or
coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The coloured wires should
not hang out of the plug.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

Designing a layout from an Auto Format template:
In addition to allowing you to draw pictures and
arrange text using any of the available fonts,
sizes, and styles, P-touch Editor comes with a
variety of pre-formatted templates, which make
creating label layouts quick and easy. Now let’s
see how simple it is to create a label layout with
the [Auto Format] command.
4 In the “Template:” list view, select the template that you wish to use. Here, let’s select
the one named NAMEPLT2.LBL.
5 Click the Next button.
On an IBM PC-compatible computer:
1 Select the [Auto Format] command in the
[File] menu to start up the Auto Format
Wizard.
6 Click the Next or the Previous buttons until
the text that you wish to change appears in
the “Input:” edit box.
7 Change the text so that the desired text is
entered.
2 In the “Category:” box, select the category
containing the Auto Format template that
you wish to use. As an example, let’s select
“NAMEPLT”.
18
8 Repeat steps 6 and 7 until all of the text is
entered in the way that you want, and then
click the Next button. For this example, let’s
change the department name to “IMPORTS,
INC.”, the title to “Manager” and the name
to “BILL REYNOLDS”.
Ch. 2 Getting Started
0 Click the Finish button. A new layout document containing the pre-formatted text is
created.
5 Click the Next or the Previous buttons until
the text that you wish to change appears in
the “Input:” edit box. Here, the first line of
text that we wish to change, “CAMERA”, is
already displayed.
On a Macintosh computer:
7 Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all of the text is
entered in the way that you want, and then
click the Next button. Let’s finish editing the
text by changing the original price to
“$415.” and the sale price to “$215.”
6 Change the text so that the desired text is
entered. We can start by changing the product name to “VCR”.
1 Select the [Auto Format] command in the
[File] menu to display the Auto Format dialogue box.
2 In the “Category:” list box, select the category containing the template that you wish
to use. For this example, let’s select “shop”.
8 Click the Close button. The text in the layout is replaced by the newly entered text.
Importing a graphics file:
3 In the “Template:” list box, select the template that you wish to use. Let’s select the
one named shop3.lbl.
4 Click the OK button. A new layout containing the selected pre-formatted text is created and the Auto Text dialogue box is
displayed.
With the P-touch Editor application, you can
also import images files in a variety of formats
(.bmp, .dib, .jpg, .gif, .tif, .ico, and .wmf on the
PC or PICT, JPEG, TIFF and BMP on the Mac)
into your layout.
1 With a layout document displayed, select
the [Image] command in the [Insert] menu
(in the PC software) or the [Object] menu
(in the Mac software). A dialogue box that
allows you to select the image file appears.

various pre-formatted templates, simply change
the text, and then it is ready to be printed. The
many templates available are useful for common needs—from addressing envelopes to
identifying floppy disks or audio and video cassettes. The tape width and length of each label
printed from a template is preset. Refer to the
samples of the available templates on pages 103
to 106.
After the text is entered, the style of the text can

Anything you print on iron-on transfer tape can
be transferred onto fabrics.
NOTE
☞ Although the iron-on transfers are non-toxic, do
not place them in your mouth.
☞ Do not store iron-on transfer tape cassettes in
areas exposed to direct sunlight, high humidity
or dust.
1 Iron the garment to flatten it before transferring the text.
2 Place the label at the desired position on
the garment with the label’s non-printed
side facing up.
3 Set the iron to cotton (150 to 180 °C), and
then press down on the label with the iron
for about 15 seconds.
4 Allow the iron-on transfer to cool (for about
60 seconds), and then carefully remove the
backing tape.
NOTE
☞ White garments made from 100% cotton with a
plain (smooth) surface are best for making 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 iron-on 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 unsuitable since they may be
damaged when pressed with an iron at a high
temperature.
☞ Press the iron straight down onto the cloth. Do
not move the iron while pressing, otherwise the
label may move out of desired position.
☞ After the backing tape has been removed, the
transferred iron-on may appear glossy. In addition, some white spots may have appeared on
the iron-on if it was touched while the backing
tape was peeled off. These can be removed by
ironing over the iron-on transfer with a piece of
cloth placed between it and the iron.
☞ The iron-on transfer will have a white background if it is ironed onto coloured cloth.
☞ Since the transferred iron-on cannot be
removed once it is applied, make all transfers
with care.
Washing
Garments with iron-ons can be washed over 20
times if the iron-on has been transferred correctly. General household detergents may be
used.
The iron-on may become discoloured 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 ironon in the wash.
Do not dry clean garments which have had
iron-on transfers applied.

Drying
Stamp film
Do not tumble dry garments which have had
iron-on transfers applied. The transfers may
come off and stick to other items of clothing.
●
Garments with iron-on transfers may be dried
either inside or outside out.
Ironing
Use normal temperature settings to iron garments with transfers.
Iron with a piece of cloth placed between the
iron and the iron-on transfer to prevent it from
sticking to the iron.

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 customised 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 57 through 61 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
☞ 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.
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
with fresh water for several minutes and consult
a doctor.
☞ Keep ink off skin, clothes and important papers.
Immediately use soap to wash skin that has
come in contact with ink. Even washing may
not remove all ink.

5 Hold the end of the stamp film in place with

8 Insert the stamp holder straight into the cap.
NOTE
Fold over
☞ Be sure that the cap correctly covers the stamp
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
sunlight.
6 Fold the other end of the stamp film over
the other side of the stamp holder and hold
it in place with your finger.

Using Labels and Stamps
☞ When the stamp is not being used, firmly cover
it with the cap and always store it standing up
with the stamp facing downward. Do not leave
the stamp laying on its side or leaning.

Printing an identification label for the stamp
holder
1 Insert a TZ tape cassette into the tape compartment.
NOTE
Use 12-mm-wide tape to make an identification label for
an M-size stamp and use 18-mm-wide tape to make a
label for an L-size stamp.
2 Print out the identification label. Refer to

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
practise 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.
