The Brother P-Touch PT-2730VP is a PC compatible label printer so you can design labels on your PC using any of the Windows fonts, add graphics, logos and even incorporate database information into your label. The included P-Touch Editor software is intuative and makes label creation straight forward. As the PT-2730VP has a built in QWERTY keyboard the printer can be used stand-alone too either on your desk or perhaps on site as the PT-2730 can be powered from batteries or the included mains adaptor.

5 stars Just what I needed Written by

Made the mistake of buying the Dymo Label Manager 500TS and it drove us nuts even after it was replace by Dymo. We then bought the Brother PT-2730VP and it just works fine every time we use it. The PC software is really simple and easy to use.

5 stars brother pt-2730 label printer Written by

excellent printer, very good value and simple to use with loads of priniting options

5 stars First class performance and a delight to use Written by

Purchased PT-2730VP due to no Win7 driver available for earlier PT-2500PC which has given excellent service. PT-2730 more flexible as it is not tied to a PC and also works with a Mac. Cash-back offer (Feb. 2013) makes this excellent value for money and unbeatable. P-Touch labelling software also improved and more user friendly than v.3.1. Highly recommended.

5 stars Perfect purchase Written by

This is exactly what we wanted. Labelzone helped me to identify the product from looking at various options - they were very helpful indeed and very professional. The printer is excellent and we are much more organised now at home and in the office. (Thanks to "Getting Things Done" by David Owen and this printer). Will be back for more lables!

5 stars Great printer.. for our Bicycle business Written by
Purchased this printer for our bicycle repair and servicing business . Once each bike is serviced , we print a service reminder label . We used TZ tape ,so the tape stays on the bicycle in all types of weather . Customers appreciate the care and attention we take when we service a bicycle and the printed label, which shows our logo , the riders CLUB logo if applicable , the work done to the bike and the next service date , is really appreciated by the customer . The software is so easy to use and so intuitive . This printer solved a real problem we had , and did it at a a great price . This printer has added value to our service offering . Well done Brother and Labelzone. M

4 stars PT-2730VP Written by

A great little label printer which can be used on it's own or plugged into the USB socket on the computer for even more features and flexability, the down side is the amount of tape wasted when printing single labels, the minimum amount of tape wasted is 32 mm which dosen't sound like much but I printed five single labels using the small margin mode with a total length of seven inch's, I then place the wasted tape end to end and it measured nearly five inch's, as the tapes are expensive this is not good! The only way to overcome this problem is to use the printer in the chain mode and print a lot of labels at the same time and only waste 32 mm, but if your like me you will tend to print labels when you need them and suffer the wasted tape and expense, but I would still recommend it to others.

I am a lab technician and want to print "permanent" labels for glass and plastic bottles that may contain corrosives, acids, get wet, etc. So: 1) Does this printer have label tapes available that will stick permanently to plastic and glass? 2) Are the labels robust enough to stand up to acids, alkalis, solvents and/or wetness? 3) Will they stay suck in the hands of 16-19 year olds? Thanks.

The TZ Tape used in the PT-2730 will stick to plastic and glass, however if the surface is curved I would suggest looking at the flexible nylon (FX) Tapes.

These tapes can be removed when picked at but if left alone they will stay put.

TZ tapes are laminated which will help to protect the label again the effects of water and chemicals.

I am interested in this for various purposes including printing PAT test labels. Is it possible to get a template to print PAT labels that comply with the regs?

Hi David, there isnt a specific pre-made template for PAT labels but its very easy to design one with the software that comes with the printer.   You can also add your own logo or customise these with the clients name or asset numbers etc. 

If you would like to know more please call us during office hours.

Does this print arial font address labels from a roll.

No the PT-2730 is a tape printer.  You will need to look at the QL range of printers for address labelling

I am needing a printer to print QR codes which are generated from MS Access. Does this printer print QR codes and can i print from a program like Word/Access or only through the Brother software?

The P-touch 2730 can only print linear barcodes, however the PT-9800 can print QR Codes.  If you would like to see the product brochure of any of our printers, these can be found on the product page in the download tab.

Can the PT-2730VP print vertical labels.

Yes you can print both vertically and horizontally using the Brother P-Touch 2730

Can this work with MACS?

The Brother PT-2730 will work with both PC & MAC.

Is the machine able to do italic as well as upper and lower case?

You can do Italics aswell as upper and lower case when using the Brother P-Touch 2730

Does this printer take the TZ tapes? I have an 1800E which has given up working but I have a quantity of the tapes and wish to replace the machine with a compatible product.

Yes, PT-2730VP printer will take the tapes you have for your 1800E.
