Versatile, Desktop Office Labeler
The PT-1830 is a sleek, desktop labeler that creates professional labels for virtually any office application. This new model uses the "TZ" series of laminated tapes up to 18mm wide, but also has the ability to print on a "super narrow" (approximately 3.5mm) non-laminated tape that is perfect for labeling CD spines.

The PT-1830 prints 4 type sizes and 9 type styles from its QWERTY keyboard. This labeler also has built-in label templates for easy labeling of CD's, VHS and audio tapes, plus others. The PT-1830 also features five "Favorite" keys that allow you to store commonly used phrases into memory and print them with the touch of a button!
