Brilliant bit of kit. Been using mine for years and it’s never missed a beat.

Had mine for about 10 years, agree with migavupe's comments, still going strong.

How much are the labels? I presume they do 3rd party ones on ebay.

Labels last me years, about £12 if I remember rightly

£18 and £23 for the suggested replacement rolls. Not surprised - the old Gillette razor business model. Anyone know of cheap compatible rolls?

I think I use DK11209 labels about £11

Just what I need, thanks! Don't forget 3.15% Topcashback.

Guess it depends on how high that output would be, the manual is available here which states the speed of printing as maximum 50 standard address labels a minute (90mm/sec). I'd imagine with a lot of usage you may run into cutter problems down the line.. this is a manual cutter, so for business you'd probably find a model with an automatic cutter a distinct advantage (imo)

I had a play with mine last night (the printer that is...lol).

I've got to say I'm very impressed by the speed and quality of the prints.

It prints as fast as it can spit them out . It's so fast that i thought it was spitting out the labels without printing on them.

It comes with templates that have some layouts and some clipart graphics.

My son said "let's try printing a photo" I explained to him that it's not that kind of printer and that it won't look good but he still wanted to try it.


I added a colour picture that on the computer screen looked really bad but when it was printed it look like a good black a white (grey) graphic .


Overall I'm very impressed.

You can also get some cheap label rolls or rolls in one length from here:

m.ebay.co.uk/itm…r=1

I think you can also buy compatible labels on aliexpress for about £2 each.


Hope this helps

I would think it would be more cost effective to get a printer that prints in ink instead of thermal as I think it will work out a lot cheaper over time if you are going to be printing a lot.

Or at least a more heavy duty thermal printer where the rolls of labels are a lot longer and cheaper in the long run.

I've got the QL-570. Works brilliantly and has never missed a beat. Good driver and software editor support as well by Brother.
