If anyone is after a label printer then Brother are currently offering £50 cashback on this printer.

Seems to be available from a number of sources at similar price although was impressed with IT247 when I bought a HP 20" monitor recently with the cashback. Set up a business account immediately when I originally spoke with them and the goods arrived within 48hrs despite using the economy delivery.

Consumables may be a little costly but probably someone will advise a cheap source.

Price after cashback is £37.27 or even better if you can claim the VAT.

Erm, I fail to understand why people buy these printers?

Take into account the cost of consumerables and the initial hardware purchase price, and then compare this against buying A4 sheets of labels (e.g. Avery or Staples own branded ones) and its seems a crazy waste of money. This assumes of course that you already have a normal printer.

Im not voting it cold, but still question the need for this device unless you have an irresistable urge to collect gadgets or just like filling your power sockets with AC adapters!

I can only comment on our own requirement. We despatch around 20 parcels a day to different addresses. A4 labels are fine if you want a series of labels all going to the same address.

This type of device is quick and easy to operate and whilst the consumables cost a lot more than A4 labels the time saving with respect to employeee time (they insist I pay them) makes it viable.

If you were using it in a business environment I think you may also see the benefit.

Also, what if you only want to print one label each time? You have to waste a full sheet of A4 each time.

Also, many printers(certainly not all, but particularly lasers) can get very easily jammed and/or damaged by using labels in them....

I can certainly identify with that, as someone who has tried to feed an A4 sheet of 8 lablels through a laser 8 times, printing different labels each time it doesn't work too well.

Alternatively, wait until you have 8 parcels ready and print all the addresses on a single sheet. The following morning you then have to sort out who got which parcel and arrange for them to be collected.

The ultimate cost saving tool is a pen, just a shame spelling and handwriting is no longer a skill considered important in the workplace ......

Then don't buy one :thumbsup:

I have had one of these for a year since they were free with cashback, great quality and easy to use, when you send out a lot of parcels they are a godsend :)

I've had a Dymo for about 4-5 years and find it incredibly useful for individual labels. Large A4 sheets labels are great if you need to print hundreds and they'll probably be faster but if you need to address small numbers of envelopes or even single labels then you'll find large A4 sheets unmanageable and wasteful.

I bought a QL550 in the last £50 back promotion and I've completely failed to get it to work with my Mac… Apparently they do but I've now lost original install CD! I'm not sure about this promo but there was also £30 of vouchers in the last.

You get the cashback on the QL-550 printer and not the QL 500 which this one is. So no cashback on this one

That's just what I have done.

I'm going to buy £30 of consumables in a separate transaction to get another £10 off.

There is never any wastage because most people can reuse a partial sheet using supplied templates and/or applicaiton (depending upon technical experience).

I've (written) an invoicing system that prints about 300 labels every couple of months, and find that A4 labels work well for me. I've also been lucky that I have never had a jam on our HP Officejet (inkjet) for the last 6 years (fingers crossed).

Agreed that convenience is a more important factor than a small cost saving when being used for business.

I was just trying to make people (perhaps the personal use market) aware of the premium such devices attract and that there are alternatives solutions to label printing out there.

I buy my (Brother brand) labels for this printer from Amazon. Haven't found them cheaper anywhere else yet.

Example prices:

DK-11201(Standard Address Labels 29 x 90mm, 400 labels/pack)
RRP £9.49+VAT / Amazon Price £5.97 (Inc. VAT)

DK-11208 (Large Address Labels, 38 x 90mm, 400 labels/pack)
RRP £11.99+VAT / Amazon Price £7.74 (Inc. VAT)

DK-11202 (Shipping Labels, 62 x 100mm, 300 labels/pack)
RRP £17.49+VAT / Amazon Price £11.97 (Inc. VAT)

I've yet to find somewhere that makes non-branded compatible labels for this printer. Can anybody else help?

For anyone who's considering it, this is a fantastic little printer - we've had ours for 2 or more years now and it is really fab. The software included is simple to use and has plug-ins to Outlook, Excel and Word for simple labelling with a single click.

HOT DEAL!!

Convenience of being able to print a single label.

Also, your price comparison doesn't take into account that if you use A4 sheets you still need to buy ink/toner cartridges for your printer! With this printer you don't need to buy anything but the labels.

Also, this printer is capable of printing continuous strips, so you could print a 6' long banner label (If you wanted to...)

lol guys, how about you leave the market research to brother.

I imagine they would only make it, if people buy it, and people would only buy it, if it offers something they cant get from thier a4 printer. For a start, its thermal, which means its insanley quick compared to poor laser warm up times etc.

If you want one, get one, if you dont, stick to your a4. lol.

Does anyone know if you can get just plain paper rolls for this? Making it a recipt printer.?
#21
i take it continuous paper tape isnt really adhesive tape its just paper?

making it a possible recipt printer?
#22
The Brother website is asking for a "Promotional code" before the cashback can be claimed.

Is the cashback only available on units in promotional boxes, or something?
#23
Is it possible to print directly from Word to this type of printer or do you have to use the software supplied?

I've just bought 5 of these from Ebuyer for £28.06 inc delivery after Google checkout.

im trying my hardest to find this sort of label size 29 x 62mm Brother DK-11209.
Want to use them for printing addresses and so on.

Thers been a couple of posts on other label sizes that are quite large! and not really ideal for address printing and placing on C6 or DL envelopes.

can anyone tell me where i can get this sort of size on the cheap. Amazon have it for just £4 but then penalise you with a whopping £4.50 postage! :w00t:

Thanks! :)

Buying the largest size available in a continuous roll is the cheapest. As the 550 has a cutter, set the software to rotate the address and then trim to size. It will easily fit DL or C6 envelopes.
