P-touch Embellish Tips & Tricks:

  • To reduce waste on the end of your label tape choose Menu → Scroll to Margin → Scroll to Narrow and hit OK.
  • Always clear your machine before you start a new project or it will use the setting that you set with your last one.
  • Make the project personal and scroll through your P-touch Embellish machine until you find the perfect Font, Frame, Pattern or Symbols you would like to use.
  • All of the symbols and frames are shown in the included product guide.
  • Special Characters: hold down "Shift" key and select the keyboard numbers for a special character to appear in the field.



Step 1 Labels created on P-touch Embellish label maker

Step 1

Insert the Black on white satin ribbon into your P-touch Embellish 

  • Use the Pattern button and then scroll to Continuous and hit OK. This is repeating text with a continuous frame. Choose any frame you like, we went with #5 and hit OK
  • Input you message, hit OK and then choose your length. It will vary depending on the size of your jar lid, if it is a standard size, we say 13-15” should be safe. After you have input your number hit OK and then once more to print. 
  • Cut from your machine and set aside.
