5 stars Brother PT-1000 Label Printer Written by

This is an excellent wee printer, value for money.

3 stars Limited font Written by

Rather elaborate, a lot harder to use than the machine it is replacing, a P'Touch 55. Wastes a lot of tape at start & end of label. A lot more fiddley getting the backing off.

4 stars Needs a different keyboard Written by

This is a good product which is fairly easy to use. HOWEVER, the keyboard is set out in strict alphabetic order, which feels very strange to someone who is used to the QWERTY layout on most other devices. In addition, most domestic users would want to produce single labels. The need to clear out the last label before starting the next is frustrating.

4 stars A good buy Written by

Having searched around was pleased with the price. I am using mainly to print labels for plants. I did find it a bit tricky setting up the print size etc., but got there in the end - simple when you know how! Good quality tape that sticks easily to plastic or smooth wood (only used these materials so far). It looks as if it will be waterproof. The cartridge of tape is very easy to install but beware the one that comes with the machine is a shorter size than normal and soon runs out. Buy replacements in readiness.

1 stars Just what I needed Written by

Comes with a cassette of label tape. Good clear instructions but easy to assemble anyway. Very easy to type the labels and to check. Once you realise that the tape is split down the middle, it's very simple to remove the backing tape! There are lots of features I haven't tried yet. I'm very pleased altogether with the printer, the price and speed of delivery.

4 stars Good value budget label maker Written by

The machine prints clearly and is generally simple to use. However, selecting some characters, dashes for instance, seems unnecessarily complicated.

5 stars FANTASTIC FOR PRICE Written by

Excellent product - produces great results - delivered very quickly by Labelzone

Love it! Have labelled so many things. Once I got the hang of it, it is really easy to use. Maybe instructions could be a bit better though.

5 stars Excellent Product and Service Written by

I bought this model for my son as I already have one. The product is superb. I received it on free delivery from Labelzone witin a couple of days. Top marks on all counts!

5 stars PT1000 label printer Written by

Great product, great price and very quick delivery

5 stars Bargain and Great Product Written by

It's a shame that this product is no longer manufactured,I guess that's progress. It works really well and is easy enough to use. Compact design means it's easy to carry around for on site jobs. I'm glad to see the tapes and the wide variety of them will be available for a good while yet.

5 stars Ideal for my boat Written by

I decided I needed to label various items on my boat for safety reasons, to assist my crew. The label maker worked like a charm, simple to operate, with a minimal glance at the instructions. Very pleased with the results and the printer was an excellent price with fast delivery.

5 stars PT1000 label printer Written by

Good product, good price, prompt delivery

5 stars Good value and practical Written by

Bought this to use for plant labels as writing with permanent marker always washes away, also to use for labelling around the household. Good value and easy to use. Cheaper than the specific gardener's label printe but does the same thing

5 stars A miracle. Written by

The most wonderful device I have bought in my 76 years on this earth. My happiness is complete.

5 stars Good Little Printer Written by

This is a handy sized printer, easy to use and suitable for home or office use.

5 stars Just the ticket....or label Written by

Great value little printer. Straight forward and intuitive to use. Haven't need to look at any instructions at all. Label printers often have a tendancy to go walkies in our office. It'd be a pain if this did but I wouldn't lose sleep of ordering another for a tenner!

5 stars very good small printer. Written by

For the price this is an excellent little printer , a pity the replacement tape cartridges are a bit pricey

5 stars Brother PT- Handheld Labrl Printer Written by

What an amazing piece of kit for silly money. Does it all with crystal clear labels. Marvellous.

4 stars thought there was 8m label casette included Written by

Only received 4m cassette. Great machine though

LabelZone Reply: Hi Ann the PT-1000 comes with a 4m starter tape, this is detailed in the "What's in the box" information.

5 stars label machinePT100 Written by

a very good printer and was excellent for the purpose for witch it was purchased. It was very easy to use once the operation was mastered

4 stars Brother PT1000 Written by

A good product, but the instructions are confusing.

5 stars Just the Job. Written by

Recently purchased the PT-1000 label maker and have found it easy to use and the labels it produces are excellent for my needs. The delivery was very prompt and I am very satisied.

4 stars Ideal hand labeller Written by

Fantastic product - I have purchased two to date as birthdays presents for my daughters in law. They were absolutely delighted with it.

5 stars brill Written by

bought this label machine,for my model rail wiring and other things , it's just the job,

5 stars Excellent value Written by

Received my printer on the exact day labelzone said I would,its easy to use,I got plenty of labels and more from both 'sample' coloured cassettes (pink&green),batteries are also included as well as easy to read instructions and all at a great price. Labels are easy to stick and stay on, they can also be wiped clean if necessary. I love my label printer originally bought for a scrap book but now I'm labelling everything from my locker to my keys.

5 stars Labeling car parts Written by

Restoring old cars alway presented a problem of labeling old parts when tearing down a car. They are corroded, oily, and just dirty.Using masking tape or paper lablel they would tear get smeary and tear. A friend suggested a label printer and he used a Brother PT1000. Easy to and low price just $10.00 on Ebay. I will never use all of the features but just the basics is good enough. No more lost,ripped,or smeared label..If they smear just wipe it off.Good adhesive on rubber hoses , metal pipes and tubes, and really good on wiring. Highly Recommend

5 stars Value for money Written by

Good quality label printer, at a very good price. Label printer, batteries and tape, so comes complete and ready to go.

5 stars Ideal Gift Written by

I purchased this label printer as a gift for a friend in Africa where such items are just impossible to obtain. She required it for making labels for her collection of roses and is delighted as she now realizes how much more versatile the printer is and the many other uses it can be used for.

5 stars Suitability Written by

Very clear instructions given for use so especially useful for elderly ladies like me who struggle to keep up with today's hi-tech advances. My two great-grandsons will now know which track to use for their different trains!

5 stars Great label printer at an even better price Written by

This was to replace one and it's great, especially at that price and with two cartridges included

5 stars Great gadget for many purposes Written by

Love it, easy to use and figured it out with having to refer to the instructions. Self explanatory and you can't really mess your labels up. I've used it for crafts as well as labelling the kids school items. Nice quality of print and great choice of coloured tapes. Lots of styles to choose and the two fonts available are nice and clear. Maybe other fonts would be good but what can you expect with something at this competitive price point.

5 stars Great value label machine Written by

This machine is ideal for our needs: general family use. It is really easy to use and does it's job well. It can store frequently used text as well so I've put my children's names in there. Overall this is really good value.

4 stars Cautious approval of the PT1000 Written by

The Pt 1000 was bought to label garden plants and appears to be OK so far Remains to be seen how the labels will weather

5 stars Does the job! Written by

I love this little machine - good value for money and does the job really well. Cartridges a tad expensive but you only order them when you need them!! The labels are clear and there are lots of options re font, double lines etc. I have purchased this machine for home use following really successful use of a larger similar machine which I purchased in my last two com[anies. Praise indeed!

5 stars Great Product Written by

Has the ability to print different fonts, styles etc... Sturdy plastic casing and has a good weight behind it. Does exactly what it says on the tin so if that's what you're looking for then this is the product for you!

5 stars Brilliant Written by

This is the first label maker I have ordered. I am very pleased with the product. Very fast delivery

5 stars Labelling Machine Written by

Great value for a home label system

4 stars Great product Written by

I bought this to label all my children's things - cups, lunchboxes, school stuff etc. It has performed brilliantly so far, and I like that I can change the size and font used, and also print two lines of text on one label. The labels have survived the dishwasher (on drinks bottles) so far, although I may buy some of the extra strong tape next time to make absolutely sure they won't come off! My only criticism is that the machine uses quite a bit of tape for each label before and after the text, so I can imagine that the tape would run out sooner than you might expect.

5 stars Excellent product and service Written by

I received my PT1000 in less than 24 hrs of ordering it I can not fault Labelzones service. This is my first label maker so can't make any comparisons however I also can't fault the product I was not expecting much for the price however it does everything I could hope for and more, perfect for labelling my craft products as well as keeping my things organised. Excellent deal thanks guys will be recommending to family and friends.

5 stars Very pleased Written by

This is very easy to use and I have been impressed by the quality of the labels

5 stars Fantastic! Written by
I think this machine is so smart and great for organising things. I am in the process of tidying all cupboards in my house and labelling everything and I can now find everything easily. I have bought the fabric tape for my sons nursery jerseys and that is fab too. Everthing in my house is getting labelled and i have told my husband if he sits long enough he might get labelled too!
5 stars A brilliant machine at a brilliant price!!! Written by

This Brother P-touch is the first labelling system I have used (apart from the Dymo embossing label system). I have found the P-touch 1000 a really easy and great solution to my needs. I have a multi-voltage power adapter (a big chunky thing with about six different connectors on) and it powers my machine perfectly. My only slight down-side with the P-touch 1000 is it wastes about 25mm of tape each end before and after the texts... I have tried to find a solution to this but as yet, NOT. It's a great solution for me and I would think it would work well with most people. The price is fantastic from Labelzone and fast delivery was an added bonus. If you were thinking of an entry-point into the world of labelling, this in my opinion is the best way to start!!! This machine will do the business...

5 stars pt 1000 label printer Written by
love this product dont know how i lived without this before now grate for getting you all organized in your home have been doing some spring cleaning sorting out my cuboard , drawers. every thing is all labled now and i can find it no problem from scarf to bags any thing i need in a hurry will be so easy to put back in place now its labled fab xm
5 stars Excellent service Written by
Delivered very promptly and performed exactly as described. No need to add any further comment.
4 stars Brother PT-1000 Handheld Label Printer Written by
Have been very impressed with it so far, easy to use
4 stars It does what it says on the packet Written by
I bought my label printer to label files and folders for my family history project- every major branch needs at least a folder and there is nothing worse than trying to make out handwriting when in a hurry. However, it is also very good for putting labels on things in the kitchen and elsewhere. The ability to switch case is very useful. I have to confess the instructions were not the best I have ever come across but with a little trial and error I got there in the end. For my modest needs it is ideal and reasonable for the price.
5 stars Brother Label Printer Written by
A nice label printer, and with a bit of practice I was able to change the font and length of the labels. Arrived very quickly and was kept informed re the delivery. I would recommend Labelzone, and definitely use them again.
5 stars Are Reviews Helpful? Written by
Yes they are!! I purchased this because of the good reviews I had read about this machine. Okay, so you get the odd negative opinion, but on the whole this is a pretty neat little machine. Go ahead and buy. I hope my review - added to all the other positive ones - is helpful.
5 stars Excellent entry level labeller Written by

I tried a Dymo machine first but it didn't print one decent label. This Brother one is excellent, perfect labels straight out of the box. Labelzone's price makes it a 'must buy' for home and small office users.

5 stars Great low price for great quality Written by

This machine is really easy to use and sits in your hand comfortably. Its great having the numbers and letters separately and easy to change fonts and capitals to lower case. its also very useful to have the option of 2 lines to save tape.

5 stars Excellent hand held printer Written by
Excellent, easy to use printer with enough simple, but effective, functions without having to keep referring to manual. Clear, easily readable labels, which don't smudge. Very prompt delivery and half the price of its competitor! 10/10
5 stars Brother PT-1000 Written by

This is my second pt-1000, not because anything wrong with the first but lost it after working nights you no what its like, so I could buy whatever but after the first one I new that this is a bargin not to be missed, a great allrounder for me as im an electrician.

5 stars The excellent Brother PT-Handheld Label Printer Written by
This is a very useful item for many labeling tasks throughout the house and worksheds etc. Can be used on almost anything. My wife now uses it more than me. Easy to use and a more than fair price. Would rcommend this item to anyone.

5 stars Brother PT-1000 Label Printer Written by

my thoughts about the Brother PT-1000 Label Printer is very good i brought it for my boyfriend and he was very pleased he rated it 5 stars it does what it says and for that price £9.99 he got a bargain i recommend to anybody go for it

5 stars Amazing Lifetime Gadget Written by
This amazing gadget is the most versatile and the easiest labeller I have ever used. In my job as an electrician I have used many labellers, and find this the best of the bunch. You can label anything with a surface to stick to. The instruction manual guides you through the different settings people require to do the job. The price is in my opinion the cheapest in the industry for an A1 product. The accessaries can be easily purchased through the vender and their outlets.
5 stars label printer Written by
nice size solidly made . easy to fit new tape cartridges. i like this machine . fast delivery well packed .this looks and feels well made .
5 stars Fantastic Value Written by

For the price this is absolutely great. Has a decent range of options, such as fonts, backgrounds etc. and is easy to use. Range of tapes seems good, and tapes up to 12 mm would be fine for most uses. Tape seems to be very waterproof, I've used it on some diving gear and it survives going underwater! The extra-strong version is probably better for sticking on plastic. Only criticism would be that it wastes a lot of tape on the margin, it can be reduced on one side only (giving you a mark for where to cut to get it even).

4 stars Good quality low end of the market labeller Written by

For the price you are getting a good quality labeller that is easy to use. The only downside for me is the amount of tape it wastes.

5 stars Best value for money label print I could find. Written by

This label printer is very good. The output is great and at £9.99 is unbelievable value. We have been using one for quite some time but I just could not resist getting two more at this price. I am now able to have more than one person doing any labeling.

5 stars simply brilliant Written by
This little label printer is fantastic. Simple to use and produces clear durable laminated labels that have revolutionised my kitchen organisation. Would not hesitate in recommending this label maker and labelzone.

5 stars Brother PT-1000 Handheld Label Printer Written by

Fantastic value for money. Easy to use. Comes with a free tape. Bought it to label my daughter's items for her school trip. Money well spent.

5 stars Satifaction of both service & product Written by

Was very satisfied by both the servce, speed of delivery and the product, which was better than described, more functions etc.

4 stars Ideal for simple labelling Written by

The PT-1000 is a perfect little printer for simple labelling needs. It's easy to set up and operate and the labels are easy to peel off and change. The only downside is that it's maybe a bit bulky but it's not a deal breaker for me.

5 stars Value beyond value Written by

Our needs were more than matched by the PT-1000. All of our trade counter now have clear labels and prices. Easy to use (even for me!) and flexible. An absolute bargain for a professional look.

5 stars Brother PT-1000 Label Printer Written by

Very comprehensive little printer and great value for money. Used a couple of times without problems. Replacement tapes are expensive and getting the backing off the tapes is a little difficult but other than that great printer

5 stars Great for garage use Written by

Bought this for labelling garage boxes in my 'big tidy up' - nice clear labels a far cry from the'Dymo' type I was previously used to. White on black very clear and double lines useful for longer descriptions but still easily readable

5 stars Ideal tool Written by

Small label machine for quck labels on the move.

4 stars Ease of use Written by

The labeller is extremely easy to use and has a comprehensive set of functions. However, if it proporionately space two lines of text it woud earn a five-starrating from me.

5 stars 1st class Written by

1st class machine for a reasonable cost

4 stars very good Written by

Prints beautifully. Better than Dymo.Only a small problem is the instructions were easy to understand but were unwieldy.

5 stars Brother PT-1000 Handheld Label Printer Written by

An excellent label printer, these are the best I have found. I buy them for our Engineers at work, so far I have purchased 6 of them. Produces very clear and professional labels.

5 stars Great value Written by

This item is just as decribed, great value, quick delivery. Recommended

5 stars Good machine but peripheral costs? Written by

Great piece of kit at a good price - apart from the usual impenetrable packaging and the apparent high cost of new tape, well worth the cost if you have a limited number of labelling tasks in mind. Don't let the kids loose on it though, they'll go label crazy...!

5 stars Label Printer Written by

Nothing I can fault about this product. Excellent bit of kit, does just what i wanted and all for a very good price

5 stars Brother PT - 1000 Handheld Label Printer Written by
An excellent label printer, and frankly the best I have found on the market, beautifully designed and comfortable to handle and use. Produces very clear and professional labels and excellent value at only 9.99 with free delivery. I bought a second as a gift.
5 stars Five star product Written by

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, with some reservations. I shouldn't have worried, it,s great for doing all sorts of labeling! If your handwriting's bad like mine it's a god send. Labelzone sent it really quick too! Five Star service all the way.

5 stars Excellent Written by

An excellent item at a superb price.

5 stars Hand Held Printer Written by

Really an exellent product does every thing i wanted it to do from heading labels, through to individual function labels for electrical control panels exellent product at an unbelievable price.

I got this printer to label all the children's school stuff. It did it all from pencil cases to clothes now labels spring up all round the house even the children can use it.

4 stars PT-1000 Written by
This was my second purchase of this model. I was so pleased with the first and so was my daughter who was always keen to borrow it. The second was bought as a Christmas present for my daughter (so that I could again enjoy using the first one !)
5 stars PT-1000 Handheld Label printer Written by
This machine is prefect for around the house,it is very easy to used and more than enough various printing formats. I used it on labelling up plugs tops,file covers & cabinets drawer etc.I evan used it on all motor vehlcles for tyre pressures Quick reminder too.
5 stars Great for the Money Written by
Nice and simple to use, but makes professional looking labels. Excellent value for the money when you don't want anything complex or fancy.
5 stars Good value label printer Written by

Easy to use once you get the hang of the instructions. I don't use it often enough to remember what to do without referring to instructions. Can take a wide range of tape sizes which is good for different size objects. I ordered a range when i purchased the labeller and I have used them all. Fabric labels tend to peel in the wash. Makes marking neat and tidy.

5 stars Brother PT-1000 Written by

Fantastic piece of equipment, kept in my garage , I now know where everything is, and get back my tools I lend to my neighbours

5 stars Brother PT- 1000 handheld label printer fun and fab Written by

Sad maybe but I love using my label printer. It has transformed my work area.  I'm now organized. I no longer put work away thinking I'll remember where I put it. There is a place for everything because the labelling and organizing has been fun.Kids at school verdict- this is so cool.

1 stars Labeller Written by

I started years ago with a Dymo but I use this labelled. Easy to use with a wide variety of tape and colours. Easy keyboard to navigate and clear results. I have recommended to many colleagues

5 stars PT-1000 Written by

This is a very easy to use simple and straight forward printer that does what it says on the tin.

4 stars PT-1000 Written by

I got this as it was on a special offer thinking it might be useful, but not really realising till I actually got it how useful it actually was!

It has been used for providing long lasting labels on all sorts of things from marking plugs, boxes, cables in fact almost anything in a clear professional way. I find a new use for it every week, and only score it down slightly as typing symbols is a bit of a fiddle.

5 stars A Good Gaget Written by

This is the first labeller I have found to do a good job for spine labels on CD and DVD cases.It is easy to use and the labels are clean and clear. For an OAP the price is OK.. I am happy to recommend it . The funtions are easy to understand even for an octogenerian and a few minutes with the instruction leaflet is enough .

5 stars An excellent and economic choice Written by

Purchased as an addition to a QL printer and to replace a similar vintage product of other manufacture that no longer functioned. The two products have quite distinct uses and advantages and one will work in situations where the other will not. The QL is ideal for address or product labels and similar and the PT is better suited to semi- and permanent labelling of files, shelves, many forms of storage containers in the home, office or warehouse. The labels are laminated and will not stain or fade in normal use and will adhere to most surfaces if clean and dry and are better suited to situations where the labels may become soiled in normal use. The labels came in a variety of colours, with different text colours and several widths and will accommodate different sizes of text and some machines will allow more than one line of print. Vertical printing is also possible. The paper labels produced by other machines, including the QL, will not be suitable in these situations. The machines are well priced, competitively featured and most can either be run from batteries or the mains via an adapter (usually optional). For most purposes, as the machines are unlikely be used for hours a day every day, batteries are usually sufficient. They also allow a degree of portability. Available in price ranges from a few £ upwards, there is a model that could suit all, including schoolchildren, who may appreciate a lower-priced model shared amongst the junior members of the family. My choice was the PT-1000 Kit which was on promotional offer at the time, but any would suit. Definitely recommended.

4 stars Slick and smart labeller Written by
I have enjoyed using this labeller which produces clear and long lasting labels for my garden labels. However I find the replacement labels rather expensive and they waste up to one third of their length by having large spaces at the beginning and end of each small label. This wastes my money too. Otherwise they are great and work easily and well.
5 stars Excellent Written by

An excellent machine that helps our engineers achieve a professional finish to all of their jobs.

5 stars Excellent printer Written by

I bought this printer to label up the instruments on my river cruiser and found it very easy to use with good quality print (I used two size labels). Unfortunately the thief who broke into my boat thought it too would be useful and so I am now printer-less.

Is there a case/pouch/bag available for the PT-1000, and where could I get one? also, are the original power supplies available still?

Unfortunately Brother do not supply a case for the P-Touch 1000 printer.  The power supply for this machine is AD24ESUK

Would this printer and the tape be ok for car number plates?

Yes the TZ tape would be ideal for labelling car number plates as it is waterproof and fade resistant.  The PT-1000 prints on to 6, 9 and 12mm Tapes

Can I get a printer that is cheap so I can only print address labels for envolopes for letters ,thanks

The QL-570 or QL-500 are the best low cost printers for printing address labels.  They are easy to use, run from a PC and have a good range of labels to choose from.  You can see the QL label printer range by clicking here.

Hi there, does this printer come with the standard 2metre black on white cartridge or just the two free coloured ones?

This version of the PT-1000 comes with the pink and lime green tapes only.  The black on white 12mm TZ tape can be bought in an 8m length

Can you use this printer to produce wrap around wire/cable markers ? If no what is the cheapest machine that could do this but also still produce the same labels as the PT-1000. Tag cable markers would be fine they don't need to be flush to the cable. Thankyou

This printer can use the 6, 9 and 12mm TZ-FX Flexible nylon tapes which are ideal for wire marking.

Can you tell me if these machines will do labels that I can sew into garments that I have made?? If so what machine and tape do you recommend? Many thanks ZoricaErcegovic

The brother P-Touch range of printers, excluding the PT-90 can take an iron on fabric tape TZ-FA3.

does the printer do flag labels

The Brother P-touch 1000 does not have the flag template in-built into its software, you should look at the Brother  PT-7600 for this feature.  However you can print onto the tape either horizontally or vertically, wrap around your cable and stick back onto its self, creating a flag effect.

Totaly new to a product like this but does it need ink or does the parer react to a thermol signal making the letters and words please?or neither lol. Thanx Amy

The tape cartridge that goes into the printer contains the label material and the print ribbon so each cartridge contains everything you need.  There is no additional ink and the labels will last years.

Is it posible to get an instruction manual or can it be downloaded. Thank you for your help in this matter. Eric

You can download the PT-1000 user guide from this link here

Does the PT-1000 work with battries? and how may if it does

The Brother PT-1000 works with 6 x AAA Batteries (not included)

How many characters can I get per print? Is it only 8 as I need it to be able to print long titles or words

The print buffer can hold 55 characters, this includes letters, numbers, symbols & spaces etc

Where can i get new tape?

All the tapes for the PT-1000 can be purchased here. Please note that the PT-1000 uses all the tape sizes 3.5mm, 6mm, 9mm & 12mm. 

What is the best way to peel the backing of the label from TZ-N231 tape thank you Brian

Thanks for the question, the TZ-N231 has a "split" in the backing of the tape which if you bend the tape it will reveal an edge which can be peeled.  

Would the PT-1000 label printer be suitable for printing labels for the garden as it appears to take the same size tape i.e TZ231 ?

Yes the PT-1000 is ideal for printing garden labels. It uses the same tapes as the GL-200 and is in fact identical to the previous model the GL-100.   The PT-1000 uses tapes in sizes 3.5mm, 6mm, 9mm & 12mm.

hi , as it got a usb plug for downloading from pc or laptop ? or do sell ? thanks mark

P-touch 1000 is not able to be connected to a PC via USB, the P-Touch 1230, 2430, 2700, 7600, 3600 9500, 9600, 9700 and 9800 can.
