The PT-1280 is flexible when it comes to tape sizes and types. It will work with tape sizes up to 1/2-inch in size, and it uses durable, laminated tapes for versatile indoor/outdoor use. It also works with any kind of tape within the "TZ" family, including standard adhesive tape, flexible ID, extra strength, acid free, fabric and more. Plus, it prints various text/background color combinations depending upon the type of tape.
The PT-1280 offers three different text sizes for added versatility, and it will automatically adjust the text size according to the size of the tape. Make labels with up to two lines of text. It also features five text-framing options available for even more flexibility.
No matter what kind of tape is used, the PT-1280's 180 dpi print resolution allows for quick, accurate printouts. Print labels at brisk speeds of up to 10 millimeters per second.
Compact Size and Ergonomic Design
Take the PT-1280 Labeler anywhere: at only 6.28 x 5.94 x 2.36 inches and 1.04 pounds, it's compact enough for effortless portability.
The PT-1280 features a full QWERTY keyboard with raised, angled keys for easier typing. The easy-view 15 character LCD display is large enough for easy on-screen reading and editing, and it allows for quicker style changes, such as outline, bold, shadow, italic, vertical, and more.
Easy Repetitive Printing with the "Favorite" Keys
If you or your business does a lot of repetitive label printing, the PT-1280 is the labeler for you. It features three "Favorite" keys that allow you to save up to three of your most-used printouts for easy one-touch printing later on. Printing your favorite labels has never been faster or easier.
The PT-1280 Labeler is powered by six "AAA" batteries or with an AD-24 AC adapter (both not included). It is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

You can tweak the Margin setting to reduce one of the margins to about 1/4 inch, leaving you with 1 1/4 inches of waste.
Even ignoring the waste, you still need to trim each label with a pair of scissors--not very convenient, and isn't that why you bought a labeler?
I sent mine back to Amazon, even though I had to pay return shipping.
1. Touch the Function (Fn) Button.
2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to the "Margin" setting. Hit the OK button.
3. You have four options for margin Full (default), Half, Narrow, or Chain Print. (I normally use Chain Print for the least amount of white space.)
4. When you are done making your series of labels, remember to manually feed the last label (shift + Print button). Otherwise your last label won't clear the cutting blade and it will get chopped in half.
It takes about 5 seconds to set this machine up to use a minimum of tape. I can't believe how many irate reviews are on here when it's so freaking simple to make it NOT do the thing everyone is complaining about.
We've had this machine for about a year now and it works great. I use it regularly and have only gone through 2 rolls of tape. My only issue is it seems to run through batteries fast. I wish it came with a an AC adapter included.
The labels themselves are definitely good quality labels.
The wasted tape is most everyone else's complaint.
1) The reason why the beginning of each label has wasted tape- The rollers that hold the tape after a print will cause the beginning of the label to curl, preventing proper adhesion to some objects. Brother made it so when you cut the tape's beginning you will have a straight flat tape.
2) The end part of the label has a similar problem, the feed mechanism needs to push the text past the door after a print. You can not cut the tape exactly after the last part of your text as that will cause feed problems for the next print.
I hate the wasted parts of the tape as well. I avoid it when I make multiple labels of the same text by using the repeat function. It continues the text in between labels without wasting any tape.
Other brands cut the labels closer, but those 'other' brands that I have used and owned almost always jam after a while and I lose the remaining tape from that cartridge. Brother 'could' most likely engineer the device to cut closer, but as for now I can accept some wasted tape for a quality label. If you actually calculate the number of labels you get with your cartridge, you will be surprised how expensive other label makers really are.
1) It is wasteful of label tape. Even when reducing margins to the narrowest setting, the product still leaves a chunk of needless white space that you need to cut off on the front of each label.
2) The product can use an AC adapter but does not ship with one. Of course, this addition would probably increase the low price.
3) It has a pesky way of clearing both text and settings when the "clear" function is used. It would be nice if it only cleared the text. The workaround is manual backspacing of each character, which is not as convenient.
All in all, these are small inconveniences given the low price for an otherwise high-quality product. It is probably one of the best labelers available in its price range.

One of the most useful office tools ever.
This takes 6 AAA battieries. I use rechargeables and they work fine.
It's a tape-waster alright. All the options for margins either waste tape, cut extra blank throw-away chunks, or cause you to pack a pair of scissors around. Read morePublished 6 months ago by phyllis a thompson

This would be a good labler but for the HUGE waste of tape.
When it runs out of the current tape cartridge, this labler goes in the recycling. Read more
