Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Label Printer but not compatible with UPSI purchased this QL-1100 to print shipping labels from USPS, PayPal and UPS. The online literature states that the printer is an ideal solution for printing shipping labels. But, when trying to setup the printer, I wanted to insert the free labels that UPS provides on a roll. But, these free labels cannot work on the Brother label printer because the printer does not have a mounting system to install a generic roll of labels. Labels must be pre-mounted on a plastic gimbal that supports the label roll. You have to purchase labels with this plastic gimbal. Further, it appears that UPS does not support the Brother printer for direct printing. To summarize, the printer seems like a good buy and might work very well for customizing label printing, but for those who want to print directly from USPS, PayPal or UPS, this is an appropriate solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RealtorI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The QL-1100 label printer had a very easy assembly and set up. It was a simple connection to my computer. I run a small business and this item prints business quality labels for my mailers and packages. It is very simple to switch to different size labels without any hassle. I am not very computer savy, but the set up was very simple and prints like a quickly without any jams. The machine is well built and quiet and gets the job done for any small business owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Printer wouldn’t connect or print thoughI purchased the printer to be able to print shipping labels, however after hours on the phone and having a second printer sent to me the printer would still intermittently disconnect from my main computer. I tried with a secondary with the same result. Finally after hours on the phone for a second time I was told another person would need to call me back and this is when I returned the printer for good. I now have a Zebra which is working perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynamic Label Printer for home or business.I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. While using the QL-1100 for the first time, I was truly amazed at how easy set-up was for this lightweight label printer., It was very written with very simple instructions that were easy for myself, and my 16yr old to understand. It was simplistic in the assembly, and adding the spindle/cartridge couldn`t be easier.Some of my favorite features are that you can use the QL-1100 without installing drivers or software, and set-up and printing from a compatible smartphone was a breeze, Not needing any toner & ink is also a big hit with me. With that being said, I found the Brother`s QL-1100 label printer compared to, and exceeded my past use of other similar label printers on the market. There are a few things that I feel could be useful to improve on this label printer...Additional fonts would be great, the option to use color, to be able to not spend additional money for new spindles/cartridges also to be able to print directly using the labels for stamps. If you tried to do that now, it requires some time-consuming calculations to get the printing specs correct. The Brother QL-1100 is a wonderful addition to my home office equipment, it has already produced great labels that I normally would pay more for, it is made by a company that I know and have trusted for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use high quality label printerI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion.I was always on a look out for a good label printer to use mostly for printing out mailing addresses, return labels etc.This printer is a decent size device with very thorough and clear instruction manual. Came with all the accessories, paper rolls and everything necessary to start printing right away. Connection to computer was easy and fast and the software is user friendly. Labels are printed in high quality. This printed can be used with mobile devices as well which makes it very convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and FastI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. To start with this is easy peasy when it comes to setup, truly a plug and play printer. When you print from a PDF shipping label on the Mac, the print option lets you choose from a drop-down menu of prepopulated label sizes; this feature is so convenient. For shipping labels, I`ll choose "4x6 shipping label." The Mac print-to-PDF option shows you what the label will look like when printed; you can change the dimensions to make larger or smaller. Printing from PDF on the Mac is no-fail! You have to purchase compatible labels, which might sound obnoxious if you`re used to a different thermal printer that uses generic 4x6 labels. With this printer, you can use different rolls for different purposes (such as mailing labels, file folder labels, etc. it automatically detects the size of the tape. The automatic cutter is convenient. This printer saves so much time! And my shipping labels look so professional. My use of this thermal printer on the PC is limited. The speed at which it prints is great, quality is very professional and comes out dry to touch. I don`t have PDF software installed on my PC, so maybe another reviewer can discuss the print-to-PDF functionality on the PC. You can print any label size for your needs. The versatility may spur your creativity and cause you to want to print bar codes, etc. I will probably try printing bar codes next. The mobile printing,Brother iPrint&Label app, making thus even more useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relatively easy to use with good templates and ...I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Assembly : I am a follow the rules sort of woman , so I read the entire instruction booklet before assembling. I found the diagrams well labeled and easy to follow. I inserted the label tape without any problem and it clicked into place. Then I brought the entire machine over to my computer and followed the instructions in the book.Downloading / installation the drivers : the only problem I had with installation of the drivers was that I didn`t know which folder it went into so I had to do it twice , the second time following the installation closely. Once installed , the printer was easy to use and I really enjoyed trying out a few of the templates to create labels. I love the creativity and ease of use. Pretty simple. No major problems asking as you follow directions.
