Brother P-touch® PT12 label makers are tabletop labelers that are designed primarily for home use. These label makers have a typewriter-style keyboard for ease of use. These machines use TC tapes and PtouchDirect has these tapes available in a variety of colors. Tapes in sizes 3/8” (9mm) and ½” (12mm) can be used with the PT12. TC tapes feature Brother’s exclusive lamination and has a standard adhesive. The lamination gives these tapes their durability and allows for labels to be printed for indoor and outdoor use.
Your labels will be protected from fading as a result of exposure to UV rays and these labels will be water-resistant. Note that labels made using a PT12 labeler and TC tapes should be applied to smooth flat surfaces. The PT12 is a discontinued model and Brother does not produce new label makers that use TC series tapes. If you want to replace your old PT12, you can find a new feature-packed easy to use printer on our P-touch printer page.
