Brother P Touch Tape - Identifying Brother P Touch tape types

labels series widths available

The Brother company is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of label printers. Millions of people all over the world rely on their products to help them keep their files, projects, and other items organized. One of the ways that Brother has achieved this is by producing a common line of label tape and then designing a number of different devices that use this common tape. By doing so, they are able to serve a number of different types of customer with the same type of tape. One of their most successful lines of label tape is the P Touch series. Brother P Touch tape can be used in a number of label printers designed both for occasional home use and heavy business or office use.

Brother P Touch tape comes in four different types:

- TZ Tape labels are made from laminated plastic and are designed to be water resistant. Labels printed on TZ tape are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and are durable enough for heavy use in varying temperatures. TZ tape is produced in widths ranging from 1/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches. It comes in a variety of colors, including most of the primary colors, and also comes in clear and clear matte versions as well. The TZ series is the premier line of Brother P Touch tape.

- M Tape labels are the Brother P Touch tape style most suitable for light, indoor use. M tape is not laminated, so the paper will not hold up to exposure to the elements. Because of this, it is often the most affordable style of tape. File folders and other basic office labeling needs are served with M tape labels. M tape labels are produced in two widths: 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch. Background colors include green, blue, and silver, and a clear version is also available.

- TC Tape labels are similar to the TZ series in that they are laminated to withstand heavy handling and exposure to bad weather. They are slightly more economical because they are only produced in two widths (the same widths as the M tape series) and have limited color options available.

- TX Tape labels are also similar to the TZ series. They are offered in the same variety of widths as the TZ series, and a variety of colors. Several of the previously made styles and widths of TX tape are no longer available, suggesting that the TX line may be nearing the end of its production cycle.

No matter what your labeling needs are, Brother P Touch tape is available to help you organize your home, classroom, or office. You are certain to find a labeling solution that will get you organized in no time at all.
