The PT-P950NW is a complete wireless on-demand network laminating label printing solution that comes with printer, accessories, label design and print software, and a full length UL certified tape – all this for the price of just the printer! This small footprint printer produces wide, premium quality laminated labels at 360dpi print resolution, up to 32mm print height on 36mm tape, and features a built-in automatic cutter that trims a continuous "tape" to virtually any length, one at a time or as a strip of pre-cut labels. Brother laminated labels can withstand abrasion, fading, extreme temperatures, chemicals and moisture.
The Brother PT-P950W uses the Brother TZe tape series and it will use the following label types:
Brother P-touch Standard Laminated TZe Tapes: Brother Standard laminated TZe tapes stick to virtually any surface and are durable enough to withstand scrapes and abrasions. Because Brother p-touch TZ tapes are water resistant, they can be used outdoors, as well as indoors. They shrug off spills of any kind; from water, to oil, to chemicals and won't fade under harsh UV rays. These PTP950W p-touch printer labels stay on through hot and cold environments from freezers to microwaves - nothing sticks like a Brother p-touch TZe tape.

Brother P-touch TZe Specialty Tapes: Brother Specialty TZe tapes are perfect for different types of labeling jobs when using your PTP950W printer. The TZeFX series is excellent for wrapping around an item, perfect for labeling cylindrical surfaces such as cables, PVC piping, etc. and best suited for wire wrapping and flagging textured and hard to stick surfaces. Then there's the TZeAF tapes that contain acid free adhesive which are great for photos. Brother also has an Iron On p-touch tape, a temper evident security tape and ptouch head cleaning cartridges.
