Brother Mobile Solution’s P-touch® PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN Series Barcode and Label Printers Deliver On-Demand Laminated Labels for Harsh Environments

Innovative Printing Solution Provides Easy-to-Use, End-to-End Solution for Multiple Vertical Markets

Broomfield, CO, Feb. 1, 2012 – In today’s ultra-competitive business landscape, where streamlined, efficient operations are critical to long term success, winning companies are utilizing the most advanced solutions and services available to rise above the competition. In response, Brother™, a premier provider of products for the enterprise, developed the P-touch® PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN series barcode and label printing solutions designed to produce some of the highest quality and most durable labels available in today’s marketplace.

Brother Mobile Solution’s P-touch® PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN are complete desktop barcode and laminated label printing solutions for applications that require premier print quality, superior finish and/or extreme durability for harsh environments. As a complete offering, the solution’s P-touch® Editor label design software application allows users to easily design labels, make changes and print at their convenience. By utilizing this advanced label printing solution, companies have the ability to realize an immediate ROI by eliminating numerous pain points often associated with commercial printed labels, including the purchase of too many labels; high short run costs; and lengthy delays.

Truly separating the P-touch® PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN series printers from the competition are innovative high speed HG tapes from Brother, which come in an easy-to-load, drop-in cartridge that is preloaded with all the consumables to print a laminated label. At 360 dpi, defined characters can be printed down to a three-point font size, which helps eliminate jagged and pixilated images that can occur when printing very small characters and graphics. Armed with these HG tapes, users can print quality labels by avoiding unnecessary time and expense associated with going to a print shop or converter to generate the same superior label.

“The P-touch® PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN series printers truly raise the bar for on-demand printing technologies by providing high quality labels that have been tested to withstand abrasion, fading, extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals and moisture,” said Mike Zolot, business development manager for Brother Mobile Solutions. “This level of reliability, added to the solution’s advanced software and HG label tapes, provides streamlined performance and operational efficiencies that ultimately help boost productivity and deliver a timely return on investment.”

Because P-touch® labels are designed to handle the most extreme conditions, they are ideal for a variety of vertical markets with multiple applications within each, including:
