There are two vertical fonts - small and normal. To put the labeler into vertical mode, hold down the [Code] key and tap the [J] key.
When it asks " 1-9 ", let go of the [Code] key.
Press the [8] key if you want small vertical type, OR the [9] key if you want normal size vertical type. Then you have to hit the [ <--' ] enter key.
Now you are stuck in Vertical mode ! :-O

To get back to normal, hold down the [Code] key and tap the [J] key, Let go of the [Code] key.
Then tap the [3] key and the enter [<--'] key. You are back to horizontal labelling.
:-) phew!

SOURCE: ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue

It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

Hello,

To change the font size, do the following:


1. Press the "Function" key

2. Press the "Left Arrow" or the "Right Arrow" key until the display shows "SIZE".

3. Press the "Function" or the "Return" key. The current selected size setting is displayed and a triangle indicator pointing a sample of the character size above the display.

4. Press the "Left Arrow" or the "Right Arrow" key until the desired Size is displayed.
* SIZE1 equals Standard Size.
* SIZE2 equals Double Width.
* SIZE3 equals Double Height.
* SIZE4 equals Double Width & Double Height.
* SIZE5 equals 4 x Width & Double Height.
* AUTO, the machine will automatically adjust the characters to the largest possible size according to the width of the tape installed in the machine.

Press the "Function" key or the "Return" key to select the characters size.

I hope this helps.

P-Touch 7100 cutter error


Just a (too late) suggestion: The cutter on the PT-7100 (and I think on every Brother Label printer that uses TZ tapes) has a replaceable blade. Sometimes just removing the blade and making sure the tape path is clear of gunk is all it needs.

When I try to print with my Brother PT-1200 label maker, it says "ERR" and does nothing. I changed batteries and the label cartridge but still nothing.


open the back of the label maker. remove the cartridge. in the lower right hand corner of the where the cartridge fits, there are 3 little posts that are pushed in when you insert the cartridge. find the holes on the cartridge that fit over those posts. cover the holes on the cartridge with tape. reinsert cartridge. try again. worked for me. If you push in the posts individually, you can figure out which one is giving you the error message. I'm not sure that it really makes a difference. I taped over all three holes and it worked fine after that. i realize its not a perfect fix, but may allow you to print anyways!

My ps 1100 label maker prints only on black side of tape


This depends on the TAPE CARTRIDGE you have in your label printer. Apparenlty, you have a TRANSPARENT TAPE on it, and the printer prints in BLACK only.

Just replace the tape cartridge

Too much tape


Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9

The font size will not print on #5


I'm not sure if it will work in your case, but I found mine did this too if my text was too long, try a short message and see if it works right then. not sure what the limit on the length is.

Labels are not printing correctly


Brother P-Touch tape label maker doesn't print right.

I believe it's a faulty tape. I put in a new tape, reset the machine and it's now printing fine. It wasn't the reseting - I tried that before.
