Versatile Labelling Options

Boasting the highest print speeds and the most connectivity options in their class, the QL-800 Series label printers are the ideal solution for many types of business.

Print black and red text without ink

Draw attention to important information by including red as well as black on your labels - ideal for highlighting use-by dates, allergens and other critical information.

Wide range of connectivity options

All models allow easy connection to desktop computers using USB. Additionally the QL-810W incorporates Wi-Fi, while the flagship QL-820NWB also adds Ethernet and Bluetooth connectivity.

Create labels the size you need

Labels are available in a range of traditional die-cut (pre-sized) or continuous rolls that lets the built-in cutter trim your label to precise length needed (up to one metre).

Print from desktop and mobile devices, or stand-alone

All models are PC/Mac compatible, whereby the QL-810Q and QL-820NWB connect to smartphones and tablets using the built-in wireless connections. Additionally you can select and then print labels stored in the memory of the QL-820NWB using the large LCD display and integrated control panel.

Software Solutions

With label design and apps for desktop PC's and mobile devices, and SDK's to integrate the QL range into your own applications, you can choose the best option for your label printing needs.

P-touch Editor Lite / P-touch Editor Lite LAN

Built inside the QL-800 and QL-810W, this easy to use label design software works without the need to install software or drivers. Working like a USB flash drive, simply connect to your PC/Mac using USB, and launch the software from the drive that appears. Include images, frames and any of your fonts on your label design and print! A version for network connected models is also available - simply run the software to allow many PC's in an office to print labels to the one printer. Again, no installation needed.

P-touch editor with Microsoft Office add-in

Design professional labels including images and logos, barcodes and frames. Link to data contained in Excel or .csv files, to print many labels quickly and effeciently. The Microsoft Office add-in lets you highlight, click and print right from within Word, Excel or Outlook.

Brother iPrint & Label app for iOS and Android smartphones/tablets

Print labels on the QL-810W and QL-820NWB using the free iPrint & Label app. Connect via Wi-Fi bluetooth (on QL-820NWB) and choose one of the pre-defined templates or quickly design your label from scratch. This free app is available from your device's app store by searching "Brother iPrint & Label).

Software Development Kits for Windows, iOS and Android

System integrators and software developers can now take advantage of various Brother SDK's that allow easy integration of label printing directly within their own apps and software.

Advanced Functionality

The QL-820NWB with its stand-alone print function and remote FTP template update allows label printing directly from the control panel. Plus advanced connectivity options offer the widest compatibility with all types of devices.

Stand-alone label printing

The QL-820NWB has a large memory to store label templates designed in P-touch Editor. Label templates can be uploaded to the printer's memory, and accessed using the integrated control panel and backlit graphic LCD display. Ideal for printing current or future date/time on label in the food and retail industries.

Remote template update via FTP

Where the QL-820NWB is deployed at multiple locations, updating the templates in all printer would normally be a time intensive operation. However the printer can automatically connect using FTP to a remote server, and if new templates are found update these automatically. This helps companies save time and money, and ensures consistent operation at all remote sites. All this directly from the printer via the internet, without needing a PC connection.

AirPrint and Bluetooth with MFI (Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad) compatibility

The QL-810W and QL-820NWB both support Apple AirPrint to enable printing from compatible apps on iOS devices and Mac. Additionally, the QL-820NWB offers Bluetooth connectivity to easily connect iOS and Android devices to the printer.
