This is a follow-up to my earlier review of the Brother PT1290 Home and Office Labeler. In my earlier review, I wrote about how I used the Brother PT1290 Home and Office Labeler to organized my son’s room. It’s been over four months now, and the labels still look new on the storage containers. The P-Touch labels held up amazingly well. I thought for sure my toddler would peel them off or get them all dirty. But the labels are still intact and still look brand new. This actually is not a big surprise based on my tests of the labels’ strength and durability back in August.
My oldest girl was also impressed with the results. In fact, she was so impressed that she borrow the Brother P-Touch labeler so she could make labels for her storage containers. As soon as I get the label maker back, I plan to use it to organize my home office. The tricky part is finding where my daughter hid the labeler. For some reason, she thinks it’s her label maker.
Below are some of the things I like about the Brother PT1290 Home and Office Labeler:
- It’s easy to use (my daughter and I didn’t even read the instructions)
- You can manually create your own design or use one of the 15 preprogrammed deco styles (I used the deco mode)
- The laminated labels are easy to clean and are very durable
- You can save your favorite labels in the labeler’s memory (up to nine labels)
- The 15-character display is more than large enough for my labels
- It can print symbols and accented characters
- The system can print one or two lines
- You can choose between two typefaces and different text sizes
- The labels are easy to cut (just press a button)
- You can purchase label tape in different colors and width sizes
- It’s inexpensive (currently less than $16 on Amazon)
- Supports other languages (German, French, Spanish, etc)
