Brother Introduces Portable Label Maker

[ 0 ] Jun. 19, 2013 | SBO Editor

Brother International Corporation, a leader in technology and organizational products for the home and office, launched its new Brother P-touch PT-H300, a portable, handheld label maker with high-end features typically reserved for desktop models.

Designed for professionals looking to organize and label outside of a fixed workspace, this “take-it-anywhere” model offers advanced features such as a Brother(TM) Vivid Bright backlit graphic display for easy previewing in virtually any lighting condition indoors or out, intuitive one-touch formatting keys, and a library of 14 fonts, 617 symbols and 99 frames. The PT-H300 boasts fast print speeds and produces large, durable labels with up to five lines for clear, detailed labeling in any environment.

Brother identified a need for a portable, handheld label maker that could perform like a desktop model and offer more robust features than the typical handheld machine. The new PT-H300 is specifically designed for professionals such as retailers, sound engineers, event planners, and entrepreneurs who rely on labeling and organization away from the typical office. It further supports a “take-it-anywhere” work style with its convenient wrist strap, fast print speeds and large QWERTY-style keyboard.

“There are many professionals for whom ‘the office’ can mean anything from a theater to a food truck to a floral shop,” said Linda Sanford, Brother Director of Marketing for Labeling Products. “With the launch of the new PT-H300, we can now offer the robust features and flexibility of a desktop machine in a handheld solution for all of the labeling and organizing their business requires.”

In addition to the PT-H300, Brother is introducing the PT-H300LI model for those that prefer a rechargeable Li-ion battery that lasts for approximately 20 tape cartridges – 6,288 inches of labels – on a single charge.

Available in June 2013 for an estimated street price of $69.99*, the PT-H300 provides the following “take-it-anywhere” features:

— Handheld design with wrist strap to safely hold and transport

— Brother Vivid Bright backlit display for easy viewing in any lighting

— Large QWERTY-style keyboard

— Ability to create large, durable TZe laminated labels with up to five lines of text

— Intuitive one-touch access to 14 fonts, 617 symbols and 99 frames

— Fast print speeds up to 20 mm/sec

— Powered by 6 AA batteries (included)or an optional Li-ion battery or AC adapter**

— 2-year limited warranty and toll-free technical support for the life of the machine

The PT-H300LI, also available in June for an estimated street price of $109.99* will offer the same features as the PT-H300 and will include Li-ion rechargeable battery and AC power adapter in place of 6 AA batteries.
