Next we put the Tupperware and glassware into both the microwave and dishwasher. We microwaved them for a total of 10 minutes each and ran the dishwasher five separate times after they were fully cooled. For the labels used on the cardboard and paper we looked at how much material was taken off with the label as a more objective testament to its stickability. Best overall: Brother — PT-D This is where it all comes together, where the versatility, user-friendliness and overall quality of the label maker meet.
When you want to be able to print right then and there, on the spot, or import a custom symbol or picture from the internet or your phone the label maker that can do both is paramount. Top Pick: Brother P-touch - PT-D The Brother PT-D is the hybrid of a handheld and computer-compatible label maker that allows you to use up to six different tape widths and import images and symbols printing with the best resolution of dots per inch.
See Price on Amazon In deciding the best overall label maker we looked at what could be done, how easy it could be done and how well it was done. It has an incredible amount of symbols within its program and can almost double the amount of lines per label as compared to the next best. At first it seemed a bit big and clunky, which makes it more of a hassle to move around compared to the others, but after putting it to use the size was forgotten.
It has a great chain printing function which reduces the cost of two inches of words to seven cents per label. The PT-D can store 99 labels inside it and is computer-compatible both PC and Mac which makes its storage essentially limitless.
It prints barcodes and has the highest resolution at dots per inch DPI when printing from the computer.
One of our favorite features is the quality of the print preview, there is no mistaking what you are about to print. It is clear and very well backlit. Also there is a great home page from which to navigate where there are a very good amount of templates to choose from that you would actually use! This Brother PT-D ended up with one of the highest scores on our user-friendliness as it was beyond easy to navigate through.
Another cool feature specific to this label maker was the automatic cutting. In order to get a label from all of the other label makers you had to push down a button to manually cut the label. Obviously this is not too big of a deal, but nonetheless it is still pretty cool and worth a mention. Key takeaways: The handheld and computer-compatible Brother — P-touch PT-D is the most versatile label maker as it has wide-ranging capacities on the machine itself, like plus symbols and six different tape widths, and can be connected to a PC or Mac where you can import images and symbols to customize your labels as you like.
Its print preview function is the best out there. There is a wide screen that has a white backlight allowing you to see what you are trying to print before you do. The interface is very clear and provides the user with an easy-to-maneuver main menu where files and templates can be simply accessed. It has a great automatic chain-printing function that cuts down the cost per label to around seven cents and contains a more-than-necessary 99 labels in storage.
Best handheld: Epson — LabelWorks LW The best simple label maker was a tough choice because they were all more or less scored the same in user-friendliness. It can also print twice as many lines on one label four as its competitors in this category.
With over symbols to choose from and one-push changes there is little to complain about.
Well, actually, in the beginning it was a bit harder to get used to because it uses symbols to describe specific actions as opposed to words. So this made the learning curve a bit longer, but ultimately it allows for the quickest changes between font sizes and types, lengths and saves.
This makes it incredibly easy and quick to work with. Best Handheld: EPSON - LabelWorks LW This label maker was the quickest to change fonts and style, from horizontal to vertical printing and wrap around text and has a computer-like keyboard allowing for incredibly simple symbol usage. There is a nice preview of the print as well, which most of the label makers we tested have, but nonetheless became a favorite function of ours. And because there is a shift key it is like using a computer keyboard to input symbols on the number keys, which avoids a lot of hassle the Brother P-touch PT-D has a shift key as well.
The wrap-around function allows you to print a label for cables or wires with just one push of a button. There is also a plethora of tapes that you can use with this label maker. And you can print in up to seven languages.
One of the drawbacks is the cost of its labels. Though 12 cents per the label is not too costly using the same standard two inches of print from beginning to end , it was one of the highest priced labels we tested. It scored near-perfect on the stickability and durability of the labels which is nice to see because the cost per our standard label two inches of font averages about 12 cents.
This was the only solely handheld option that allowed you to print barcodes for shipping. Best computer-connected: DYMO — Turbo When deciding which computer-compatible label maker was the best excluding the best overall which was a hybrid it was a bit of a toss up because each one was dominant in different categories. After much thought, we figured that someone who is buying a computer-compatible label maker is most likely going to want to use if for shipping labels, barcodes and addresses.
See Price on Amazon In terms of tape size and type, this printer has the most variety out of any we tested. All of the computer-compatible choices can link up with the address book in your computer. Unfortunately the standard tape that came with it is not laminated so it performed terribly in the dishwasher it was the only one whose print faded on the Tupperware and that fell off completely from the glassware. Something else that was not as impressive as the other options was the software.
It was harder to change certain things, for example, moving or getting rid of an imported symbol or image took many more clicks. There is very little unused tape and it can print with a resolution of dots per inch.
Alongside the wide variety of tape sizes that are compatible with this printer more than any other label maker we tested. The types of tape are not necessarily as flashy as the others but DYMO provides you with many durable options that are resistant to heat, cold, water and UV that are presumably compatible with the dishwasher.
There are more than 10 different tape widths you can choose from. This was the fasted printing label maker, printing more than one per second, allowing you to print out your address entire book quickly and without any more effort than setting up the print. The standard non-laminated tape it came with are not dishwasher compatible and do not stick as well as the other similar labels.
Nonetheless there is plenty of stick for sending out packages. It is extremely clear and easy to use with a normal keyboard akin to that on a computer. The interface is as simple as it gets.
There is an auto-store history function which was very nice to have as it allows you to reprint something you recently did without hassle. Unfortunately there are only three font sizes to choose from, but there are over symbols available. Quick and Cheap: DYMO - LabelManager This is the most basic label maker out there, it is very transportable and prints great labels for plastic and glassware for a small fraction of the initial cost and cost per label.
See Price on Amazon It is definitely a take-with-you type of label maker. However, due to its compact size, it does not have a shift key which makes attaining certain symbols on the keyboard a bit more cumbersome than it should be. On the flipside, though, the LabelManager makes it beyond easy to change font size, embolden, italicize and underline, as well as print vertical labels.
And if you are trying to learn a language, this DYMO has 19 to choose from. The amount of tape-widths and the maximum width this label maker is compatible with, makes it more versatile than the DYMO Plug N Play.
Unfortunately, the resolution is only dots per inch on this computer-compatible label maker which really decreases the value of importing images. Another thing to keep in mind is the cost of these labels. These were the most expensive labels we tested at about 13 cents per label—again using our standard two inches of words because of the immutable margins, which were an inch on either side.
The labels themselves did seem to hold up well in all the tests though. This is another instance where the labels used are flat, which makes them easy to peel and place.
Unlike the other two series models, though, this entry-level model has much fewer connectivity options: just USB 2. While all three of the series as well as all other QL models support all 25 or so of Brother's DK drop-in continuous tape and die-cut label types, only the QLNWB can operate as a standalone label designer and printer with the aid of an add-on battery , and the QLW can run sans an AC connection via the same optional battery.
The QL, on the other hand, can't function without being plugged in to an AC power source and connected to a computing device. All three series models can, with the right label installed, print in not only black, but also black and red, or red only.
However, currently Brother offers only one 2. With a little ingenuity and the built-in cutter , though, you can create many different kinds of red or black-and-red labels, such as FRAGILE banners, or eye-catching shipping labels and name badges from that single 2. Like its siblings, the QL supports nine preset resolutions, ranging from dots per inch dpi to dpi, with the highest setting being bydpi.
As with the Brother QLW and QLNWB , when printing text, I saw very little quality differences with the QL after dpi, but when printing images and graphics, the higher resolutions did produce more detailed results. In addition, since all label design and creation takes place on a PC, Mac, or Android mobile device, the QL doesn't really need much of a control panel. To that end—printing labels—it has only four buttons on the front: Advance for advancing the label roll forward , Cutter, Editor Lite for launching the Editor Lite program on your PC, discussed in the next section , and power.
At this point, you can launch the Editor Lite program, which resides in the printer's firmware, onto your PC by pressing the Editor Lite button on the front of the device. Editor Lite is a pared-down version of Brother's more robust P-touch Editor software. If quick and simple labels are all you need, the Editor Lite utility is fine, but you get a much wider range of features and design options from P-touch Editor, which you install from Brother's install.
P-touch Editor is a powerful label layout tool with integrated access to all the DK label types, as well as robust design options for controlling fonts, importing contacts from P-touch Address a database for storing contacts and printing shipping labels, and inserting barcodes, images, graphics, logos, and such on to your labels.
Brother says that the QL can print all-black text "standard address labels" 1. Without the lag time the time required for the computer and P-touch Editor to process the print job before the first label starts printing I clocked the QL at With the lag time, the QL printed the same address labels at The Leitz Icon , on the other hand, churned at
