The Brother PT-9700PC Desktop Bar Code Printer is a compact workhorse designed to take up as little space as possible, yet print out 360 dpi labels like a champ! This high quality printer makes laminated labels with a quick 3.1 ips print speed, and you can command the automatic cutter to trim the continuous label to a customized length, or set it to half-cut multiple labels.

Compatible with both HG and TZ tapes, the PT-9700PC is easy to maintain. Both of these tape types drop right into the printer, as do cartridges that contain the consumables. There are no adjustments necessary either, allowing you to get back to work without much delay.

The PT-9700PC is fully compatible with Windows 7, along with other Windows operating systems. In addition, you can use the label printer with other external devices, such as a bar code scanner, keyboard, or medical equipment. Brother backs up the PT-9700PC with a 2-year limited warranty and toll free customer support.
