P-Touch machines allow you to easily print labels. Each machine has a keyboard to type out text, a cartridge to print the label and a display area that allows you to preview your label before you print it. Users can select from multiple tape widths and colors, as well as a variety of borders, frames, text sizes and symbols. You can also choose from several fonts and font sizes. You scroll the available fonts and make your selection by following a simple procedure.
