Brother Introduces the First P-Touch Label Maker with a Full-Colour LCD Display

Offering incredibly intuitive and accurate label creation thanks to its easy-type keyboard, backlit colour display and automatic tape colour detection

Sydney, Australia – 10 March 2015 -Brother International Australia, a leader in home and business IT peripherals that focuses on the ‘Customer-First’ approach, has launched its new PT-D600 advanced labelling machine, designed to meet a wide range of business needs – from organising office filing to tracking property through specialist barcode and asset management labels.

The versatile PT-D600 is designed specifically for the higher-volume business user in mind. Its full-colour LCD display provides a true ‘what you see is what you get’ image of the label being created, shows edits in real time and even automatically detects and displays the colour of the labelling tape installed in the machine.

The large QWERTY keyboard with convenient formatting keys rests at an angle for comfortable, accurate typing working in conjunction with the LCD display to help make creating professional labels easy and intuitive.

The PT-D600 connects to Windows® and Mac® computers with the included USB cable to be used with the free P-touch Editor Label Design software1. With this software, users can create high-resolution labels, choose from an expansive library of label templates and create custom labels using the fonts, symbols and graphics already stored on their computers.

“With the introduction of the new PT-D600, Brother has made label creation a more intuitive process than ever before,” said Kelly Wilson, Senior Marketing Manager, Brother International Australia. “By combining the standalone features of the full-colour display and easy-type keyboard and the ability to connect to virtually any computer, we’re giving businesses the flexibility they need to quickly create the long-lasting, easy-to-read labels that help keep their workspaces organised and efficient.”
