Brother PT-3600
Discontinued Logo
Electronic Labeling System
Thanks to amazing features like easy-swap tape cassettes, bar code printing, built-in symbols, a wide range of fonts, styles and sizes, and the versatility to work alone or connect to a PC, the PT-3600 represents the ultimate labeling and organizational solution.

The PT-3600 prints at an astounding 360 dpi and delivers high quality labels either as a portable stand-alone unit or as a computer label printer. The PT-3600 can be connected to a PC or Mac so that virtually any graphics, signatures, logos, type fonts or images created on your computer can be made into a professional looking label. Its three line display and built-in auto cutter makes the PT-3600 the electronic labeler you can' label without. This new auto cutter not only cuts the label, but scores the label to allow easy separation of the label from its backing.

Providing the ability to print laminated labels with standard or "extra strength" adhesive (twice the adhesive strength), and Avery® address and file folder labels simply by switching cassettes, the PT-3600 meets all your organization' needs. Its wealth of advanced features make it perfect for all departments from administration and facilities management to research and development.
