This labeller is 'Plug and play!'
I'm the kind of girl who gets excited over organization. I adore alphabetized DVD collections and Mr. Speedy's habit of arranging CDs alphabetically by artist, then subdividing the artist's works by release date. Pair those systems with a little bit of tech, and, well, I'm over the moon.
So, I was really excited when Brother's new P-Touch 1230PC labeller landed on my desk.
While I may have been mocked for describing it as "Plug and play" (apparently, for some people, organizing and labelling is considered 'work' rather than 'play'), this nifty little device is super easy to use —the software you need is installed on the device, so you just plug it in to your PC (yep, you need Windows XP or Vista to run it, which is sad news for all-Mac households like mine) and start printing away!
Within minutes, my water bottle, phone and filing cabinet were marked as my property, and I even spread the love and made some labels for my colleagues too.
You can use different fonts and sizes, add symbols and even print vertically, on a variety of labels.
The labeller will be available at mass-retailers mid-month and is currently available at brother.ca.
