As an EBay seller I use this for all my shipping! It puts a real professional touch to the package! I also use it to make labels for my hand made items which are custom made by me. It makes the items stand out and lets the buyer see the price easily. I wish I had invested in this earlier rather than a ink jet printer!

I own or managed about 4 of these printers. The printers are excellent, not so the supplies. Labels do not always stick well on a variety of normal surfaces, new cardboard boxes, envelopes etc. If the surface has ANY texture to it, you will likely have the label lift at the edges or come off. I contacted support several times and worked with Tyrone. Even sent samples of the materials being used as well as label samples. After many weeks of waiting I contacted them again, they were going to ship out two rolls of labels as a replacement. Never received anything. Bottom line: Excellent printer, poor label adhesive and really lousy support staff.

Works great!

By 

from Vancouver, WA, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

As I enter "seniors" territory, the Brother QL-500 has been a great aide in helping address envelopes, label file folders and attach notes. In addition, not having to replace ink cartridges is a huge plus. The only suggestion I would have is that it would be nice to be able to have more than one size label in the printer at the same time.

Good Value for the Money

By 

from Mesa, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

I have had my QL-500 for a very long time. I have been through three computers and my faithful QL-500 keeps on giving me exceptional performance. I really need to expand my use and order more sizes of labels because it certainly does well already with the few sizes I use.

Procrastination Buster!

By 

from Georgia, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

I used to put off making labels for my file system until I had enough to fill a sheet of the same type labels. The it was the amount of backlog that made the task look intimidating. Now that is a thing of the past since I can print out one label at a time with precision and enthusiasm. It is also very cost effective.

Best Ban For the Buck Shipping Printer

By 

from NW Indiana USA

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

I've been using a bit over a month now, and it's been phenomenal. I almost exclusively ship with PayPal, and I've had no issues and it's saved me time and I'll never have to change ink again, just rolls of paper. If you ship 10 or more items per day, I'd recommend this in a heartbeat. Feels sturdy, I assume I'll be using it for years.

Print Shipping Labels

By 

from Florida

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

This printer is fantastic to print eCommerce shipping labels. Works with Amazon, Ebay, Etsy and Paypal. Just what I needed to print adhesive labels and stop printing letter size sheets which than had to be taped to the package.

Nice unit

By 

from Lincoln, NE, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

Good little unit. A little hard to figure out as there are no tutorials on how to use or set up once we figured that out it is pretty good. Tape selections are limited with the film or paper tape, need more options.

Making labels is a breeze using the QL-500. Dependable and solid. I have used these label makers for over 8 years. New job? Get a QL-500.

Great Little machine

By 

from Virginia, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

This little machine is great. I use it for hanging folders (small labels) and just fold the excess behind to fit in the tab. Sure has made my life easier than typing tabs on the typewriter (yes I still have one).

It is OK

By 

from Montana

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

It is OK but I am not really happy with it. In fact I dread using it each time. Instructions are incomplete and could be so much better. The time it takes to figure it out is so frustrating. I have had to call to get help. I really am knowledgeable with computers, etc, but a disappointment.

Easy to set-up and use! Very quick!

By 

from Maine, United States

Comments about Brother P-Touch QL-500 Thermal Transfer Printer - Monochrome - Label Print:

The Brother QL-500 I use is owned by my office, but I wish it were mine! Management had put it in the bottom of a supply closet, thinking it was useless because they had lost the CD to install it. I went to the Brother's website and quick as a flash I was able to install it. I use it for file labels as well as address labels and it runs quickly and smoothly each time.
