With this label maker, you can hook it up to any PC, and print laminated labels. Let me make this clear though---you have to have a computer to hook the labeler up to, or it will not work. Hooking up the label maker is very easy, you simply use the USB cord that comes in the box and hook it up to the USB port on your computer. Once hooked up, and powered on, a built in software called "P-Touch Editor Lite" automatically comes up. It is very user friendly, and allows you to create your labels from your computer, and print them without having to install any additional software. The great thing about this, is that with this label maker you have access to a wide range of fonts, clip arts, and editing that you do not have on a regular label maker. But, the best feature of using a computer to generate your labels, is that you get to see what the labels are actually going to look like BEFORE you print them! At last no more wasted TZ tape!
Now, if you want to take your label making up another level you can install the additional software from the CD-ROM that comes with the labeler. Installing this software is totally optional, and not necessary, but just provides some additional features that the built in software does not have. This is where things got a little tricky for me, and why I would give this product 4.5 stars if I could. Installing the software was not as easy as I expected it to be. But I am going to tell you what I did wrong so you won't make the same mistakes that I did!Read more ›
I've never owned a dedicated label maker before, but certainly have an appreciation for a good label. After running a few tests for an hour, here are my impressions of the PT-2430PC:
*Ease of use. No driver or software to install if you don't want to. A small self-contained program is executed when you plug in the device to the USB port. I did not bother to use whatever extra software might be on the CD.
*The text output is legible enough. While jagged edges are definitely visible, it's just a label maker and not a graphic design machine.
*Uses any True Type font installed on your computer, including whacky symbols!
*The quality of the labels are very good in regards to water resistance and peeling-and-re-sticking ability. I ran a printed label under a faucet for 15 seconds. There was absolutely no bleeding or damage to the base. The tape seems to be laminated and this gives it strength and durability. I was really surprised that the labels still stuck after I had thoroughly wet the adhesive (though I had to wipe off the water first). They also peeled off without leaving a residue and then easily re-adhered to the surface.
*Takes tapes of various width, up to 1-inch
*Works with AC or batteries (but it takes 6 AA!)
*In addition to text, you can print images and screen captures (but see the CONS section and the sample images I've posted)
*It is useless when untethered from a computer. A label will only print via a computer. It would have been great if there was a built in memory which could store a few labels which could be printed remotely.Read more ›
I tried the method with a dozen different text labels and the process worked like a charm!
These are the notes from their website:
Due to the construction of the tape mechanism, the one inch (25mm) piece of tape that is produced prior to every label cannot be eliminated. However, when you print more than one label at a time and select Chain Printing, the subsequent labels can be printed without the excess tape.
To select Chain Printing:
1. Input the text for the label.
2. Click on the pull down arrow menu next to the Print icon and select Print Options.
3. Select Auto Cut and Chain Printing in the Print Options dialog box.
4. Click Print; the machine will feed and cut off the one inch blank tape and prints the label. The label will remain in the machine until you print another label.
5. Create another label and click Print. The machine will feed and cut off the first label you have created. The second label will remain in the machine until you print another label.
6. Continue creating and printing the next label. When you finish printing all the labels, press the Cut button on top of the machine. The machine will feed out and cut off the last label.

I had the older version which worked good for several years. Finally the cutter gave out after thousands of uses. The auto cutter is just perfect, great new feature.Published 1 month ago by Michael
