Default Off Topic - P Touch label maker

Did someone in our group talk about a Brother P-Touch label maker that
could be used for making name tags & also being functional with database
software
on a pc ?

Cheers Wendy

Default Off Topic - P Touch label maker

We use a P-Touch that works with the computer. We haven't used it with a
data base, but it can access anything anywhere on the computer, so I see no
reason why it couldn't function as you ask.

It is model PT 1500PC. Here's a link:

I have a 2500 pc, and love it.

What database functionality are you looking for?

Default Off Topic - P Touch label maker

Upon researching, I have read where the label maker acts as a printer.
I was thinking I could simply open my data base then click on a certain # &
then
print out the orchids name.
Also have to find out if the software is compatible with Vista.
Will check out your model & thanks.

I think that what you want to do is essentially what the P Touch will do.
Remember, it's not portable unless you take a lap top with you. I can tell
you that come h**l or high water, the labels don't fade. We are very happy
with ours.
