Brother PT-D450 – PC Connectable Label Maker
The P-touch PT-D450 is a compact, PC-connectable label maker with a large, QWERTY-style keyboard and a backlit graphical display that help make it easy to create professional labels for the home office and business. You can connect the PT-D450 to a Windows® or Mac® computer with the included USB cable to be used with the free P-touch Editor Label Design software. Used on its own, the PT-D450 features an easy-type keyboard with large keys and an angled design for comfortable typing. It also features one-touch formatting keys that help save time when adding frames or changing other formatting options.
Create personalized labels up to 18mm (.70”) wide using virtually any combination of the 14 fonts, 10 font styles, 99 frames and over 600 symbols available to choose from. Plus, the PT-D450 features a large internal memory that lets you save up to fifty of your most-commonly used labels and reprint them with a few button presses!
The PT-D450 can be powered by either 6 AA batteries (not included) or the included AC power adapter to give you the ability to make labels at your desk or on the go. Plus the generously-sized backlit display is bright enough to give you a clear view of your work, even in low-light conditions.
TZe tapes are protected by a thin, clear film to withstand water, grease, fading, abrasion, heat, and cold, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. TZe labels feature a split back design for hassle-free application. Use one of our specialty tapes to create flexible cable and wire identification labels or create labels with acid-free adhesive2 that are safe for scrapbooking and other photosensitive materials. There’s even non-laminated fabric iron-on tape for labeling clothing and more.
