Brother™ Introduces the First P-Touch® Label Maker with a Full-Color LCD Display for True “What You See is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) Label Design

The P-touch PT-D600 offers incredibly intuitive and accurate label creation thanks to its easy-type keyboard, backlit color display and automatic tape color detection

BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--()--Brother International Corporation, a multi-billion dollar leader in technology for offices of all sizes, today introduced the PT-D600, the newest PC-connectable desktop model in its popular P-touch label maker line, and the first with a full-color LCD display.

The versatile PT-D600 is designed squarely for the higher-volume business user in mind. Its full-color LCD display provides a true WYSIWYG image of the label being created, shows edits in real time and even automatically detects and displays the color of the labeling tape installed in the machine.

The large QWERTY keyboard rests at an angle for comfortable, accurate typing. Convenient formatting keys and the LCD display work in conjunction 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 Linda Sanford, Director of P-touch Product Marketing. “By combining the standalone features of the full-color display and easy-type keyboard with 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 they need to help keep their workspaces organized and efficient.”
