Brother has the world’s first label printers with two-colour print

The new QL-800 printers from Brother offer a unique thermal label technology, which allows printing in both black and red. This is convenient for use in offices, warehouses and in the home. The three QL-800 printers are available at prices from DKK 899 ex VAT.

Label printers are indispensable helpers in many companies and homes because they make it so easy to mark and identify things with labels. From binders, folders and cardboard boxes to DVDs, clothes and bags.

Brother is one of the leading suppliers of label solutions. Therefore, it is hardly a surprise that Brother is the creator of this year’s great novelty within label printers.
As the first manufacturer in the world, Brother can now present thermal-based label printers for the office and home segment that print in two colours. Not only in black as all the others, but in red, too.

This provides unprecedented flexibility and creative possibilities for users of the three new Brother label printers in the QL-800 family.

Labels with red print can be used for e.g. warnings, special identification of persons on name tags, highlighting important messages, emphasising offers on signs or for practical reminders.
Three models to choose from
The three new Brother machines use a new type of heat-sensitive thermal paper. Advanced electronics and software ensure that the print head can print in both black and red, without the use of ink or toner.

The new models in Brother’s QL-800 series appear in a stylish and modern design with a glossy surface. Thus, the printers can easily be placed on a desk together with laptops and other contemporary equipment.

Brother QL-800 is the smallest and lowest-priced of the new label printers. The QL-800 offers USB cable, integrated cutter and software for designing your own labels. The print speed is 148 mm per second or approximately 92 labels per minute

Brother QL-810W also provides network card and AirPrint. The speed is increased to 176 mm per second, corresponding to approximately 110 ordinary labels per minute.
Finally, the QL-820DW offers Bluetooth and wired network connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi, Apple AirPrint and USB connection. The QL-820W is equipped with a large graphic LCD display, which makes it easier to operate the printer and design personal labels. Moreover, Brother QL-820DW can work without being connected to a PC.
Numerous applications – only limit is your imagination
The three new Brother QL-800 models are very easy to use. The two larger models can work with an optional Li-ion battery (not included) for carrying the printer along. This is convenient when printing labels in big warehouses, in shops or in large offices.
These new unique prints in black and/or red offer many different applications. Both professionally and domestically.
In the office, identifying confidential documents, highlighting important papers and designing clear warning signs in red on doors, office machines, cabinets, etc., has become much easier.

In companies and at conferences, the two-coloured labels can be a great advantage on name tags. For example, the red print could indicate that one has access to special areas, etc.

And in warehouses, for instance, the black and red labels can mark packages and boxes to be handled with special care.
