I’m constantly struggilng with being more organized at home and at work. I’ve done a pretty good job of purging our closets, but with two little girls who have TONS of tiny doo dads and accessories to organize not to mention my own office at home and work that screams please organize me, I have found that labeling items is a great help.
I recently was sent Brother’s “Simply Stylish” Labeler (PT-1090) electronic labeling system designed for home and family use.
Set-up was very easy and it took me just a few minutes to type my first basic label. There was a learning curve, for me, however to learn all of the “extra” features so that did take some time. The PT-1090 takes six triple A batteries (not included) and inserting the tape cassette took just a second. You can also power the labeler with an optional AC adapter (which is not included). It’s small enough to hold in your hand and comes in a fun mauve color so your husband probably won’t want to use it. (Ha!)
The PT-1090 features 12 built-in “Deco Mode” patterns to create extra stylish labels, although honestly I liked the plain labels and used them to label upright magazine organizers in my office.
With its ABCD keyboard and convenient “Feature Dial”, the PT-10990 is very easy to use once you get the hang of it. It also has a convenient cable labeling feature to help keep your wires and cables organized, perfect for office use. You can also use the Brother PT-1090 to create labels with 1 or 2 lines of crisp text, and use the built-in memory to save up to nine of your favorite labels for the most common items you want to label at home or work.
Some highlights of the PT-1090:
- Prints labels on durable, “TZ” laminated tape – perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
- 12 Deco Mode Patterns for extra-stylish labels
- Add time & date to your labels for food storage, etc.
- Cable labeling feature to organize your wires and cables
- Prints labels on laminated indoor/outdoor “TZ” series tapes (up to 1/2″ wide)
- Easy view, 12-character LCD display
- Ergonomic design with convenient “Feature Dial”
- Portable, perfect for “on-the-go” use…I found it very convenient to carry in my work tote bag as it is very lightweight
- Updated, user-friendly keyboard design
The Brother PT-1090 retails for $34.99 and is on sale at Amazon.com currently for $27.99!
