Rated 4 out of 5Â by Spacecase Good general use label maker
I really like this label maker. I got this as a holiday gift from my mom since she got tired of me stealing hers. I have used plenty of label makers in my life to know that this is a good no-frills starter label maker. I like that label maker feels very sturdy and comes in the protective case for storage. I even kept the plastic packaging inside for additional protection. Also, it comes with a trial of clear and white labels WITH BATTERIES! So awesome! I even like the manual cutting feature, since I often like yo print out many labels at one time and snip them myself.
My only complaint is that there is no center alignment. Else, this is perfect.

I love this label maker. I got it when organizing my closet so I could label shoe boxes (I don't like my handwriting enough to see it every day). It's easy to use and I love the uniformity of the print.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Allie7 Great Label Maker!
I use this VERY frequently and have labeled many, many items in my house. Mainly, I use the white tape with the black lettering and stick the labels on my clear, Container store boxes, file boxes, and magazine holders. You can label boxes in storage areas, pantries, closets, toy rooms, craft areas, mudrooms, laundry rooms and more! Spend a little time learning the settings before getting started and get ready to label and sort all kinds of things that need a place in your house.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ContainerLover817 Easy-to-use labelmaker
I love this product because it's easy to use and the battery life lasts long. I use this for everything in the house and labeling food. It's a great way to stay organized especially for storage closets, file cabinets or a spice rack in the kitchen. The sticker label tape is about $16-20 but lasts awhile.

Very handy, good size, easy to work, .... but mine has stopped working. Even my daughter, who has the exact same machine, can not get it to function and she is very familiar with the label maker. So, I will return it and replace it. These things do occasionally happen. My daughter's has worked perfectly for several years now.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by LabelManiac Chews up tape
I previously owned a P-touch purchased at an office supply store , and it eventually wore out after many years and a good long life. I bought this as a replacement and have had nothing but problems, just after the warranty expired, of course. The tape gets chewed up, the wheels turn the wrong way, now the tape won't even go into the machine. It has been gently used, and there is no excuse for this. Will not buy another Container Store special.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Daisizmom Nice machine and discontinued through Brother
Yes, I purchased it and when I went to register & order more tape through "Brother" this model is no longer available once they are gone from the container store they are gone. A different model will take it's place and you can still get the tape cartridge. A 1-inch lead before text types is a little much in my opinion (waste tape). You can set the margin at the end of text to cut shorter but not at the front end.
User friendly, complete instructions, compact, nice display and carrying case. Good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bakeursilly Love this....use it more than I expected
I kind of bought this on a whim. I thought it would be nice to label some containers of food in the kitchen, some containers that I purchased, and the photo storage boxes I also bought. I ended up labeling everything in my house that I could attach a label to (not literally everything). This product is quality, really easy to use, and kind of fun...esp. if you like organization like me. The label maker comes with batteries and two types of label tape (clear and white background with black lettering). I really recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SuZQCA Keeps me Organized
I love to be able to keep things organized and this is the ultimate tool. I use it in the garage, for Christmas storage, in the kitchen and all over the house. I even got it out when my niece's boys got the same toys as gifts and put their names on them so they would be able to tell them apart. Of course, that's besides the obvious files and office type stuff that I bought it to do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NAZY BEST LABEL MAKER YOU CAN BUY!
As a professional organizer, I have used a number of label makers throughout the years and can say that this label maker is my favorite. The Container Store label maker in my opinion it's more durable, longer lasting and easier to use when compared to other label makers. As long as you don't pull on the tape before it's done printing, this product can last forever. I've had mine for 7 years now and it's working as good as when I first bought it. This label maker provides you with easy access to a number functions to choose from, unlike other label makers that take forever to figure out with even less functions. Style, size and margin for example, are some functions that help you change the look of what's printed.
The label tape that is used for this product is great as well because it provides you with a large roll that will last a long time. Also, the label tape doesn't leave sticky residue after it's removed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SmartLib I love this labelmaker! I have used it in my home office, my bathroom, and most importantly at work to label cabinets, drawers and even the book carts at my library. Very easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sh369g Great label maker
Only complaint: can't reduce the leading margin, only the ending one. This causes an extra amount of tape being used. Other than that, it's easy to use and does a great job!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Best Label Maker Ever!
This is the most fantastic label maker I've ever seen or used. I highly recommend it and I would buy it again in a minute. It's easy to use, nice looking and very handy for all sorts of labeling jobs. It even makes vertical labels, which is really nice for long, tall containers and many other items. Just remember to put the batteries in the way it says and the rest is very simple.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tanich Great label maker!
This label maker is great. I instantly used it to label the spices in my spice rack. It works great, is easy to use right from the box and even comes with batteries! The only downside is that it prints a lot of excess blank space with each label. This wastes some of the label tape and is unnecessary. Otherwise, I'm completely happy with this item and I want to label my DVDs and books now!!

Before my first meeting with a new client I always encourage them to buy a label maker, specifically the Container Store's Brother model. Does everything it's supposed to do with ease. It's also really fun to use and can get a little addictive!

What's not to love when you love to organize! A label maker for all those "organized things" - and the ability to make cloth labels for all the kids things!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by maichan Solid purchase
Has a lot of nice features and options for fonts, sizes, etc. The labels look great, too. Only drawback is the amount of slack and wasted label tape it uses when printing. Therefore, I recommend printing as many labels at one time as you can to reduce waste.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Junior I lend it but won't leave it with ANYONE
It is my favorite purchase ever even though pricey. I use it all the time as I always downsize spices and lotions. My husband didn't like me invading his tool storage drawers and all his little hardware drawers but now I can find things more quickly and easily. It is so easy to use, change fonts or change tape. I took it to my messy sister's house and labelled her pantry and junk closet and now even she is a labelling maniac. She wants to borrow it but I can't let it out of my possession. Does anyone remember that electric etcher that you could barely read?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Claire So glad I made the purchase!
There were many times I could have used a good label maker, and finally made the purchase. I'm so glad I did! I've used this weekly for one thing or another, and am finding more uses for it than I imagined possible. I haven't labeled everything in sight yet, but for those things that need a label, I'm covered. This is easy to use, and I like having the option of changing size or front.

What a difference my Brother Label Maker makes! Sure you can put things in clear plastic boxes; but do you really know what is in there at a glance? Label it! My pantry has never been as organized and it makes it so much easier to see what I really need instead of guessing at it, because, everything has it's spot! I don't know how I did it before I got my label maker! Good investment!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bebo this thing is great! i really compared with similar ones that at first seemed cheaper (also by brother) but with the multiple tape cartridges and the carrying case, this turned out to be the better deal. i use it all the time and i'm not usually an OCD type person--it's just so much nicer to see everything looking cohesive and organized.
