Compatible or Not?

Whether a type of label can fit a certain printer is closely related to two aspects: the identification method of the label printer and the label specifications. The identification method ensures that a specific label can be recognized by the printer, while the label size determines if it can physically fit into the printer.  

Identification Method

A Brother label printer uses holes on the cartridge to identify the label type.

 Different hole patterns correspond to different printing sizes. By selecting the desired size on your computer, you can easily set up the printing dimensions. After placing the cartridge in the correct position, you need to click the appropriate settings on the computer, and the printer will start printing. FYI, the black marks on the side of the labels do not identify the labels but serve as a reminder when the paper runs out.

Note: If you click the “print” button and the printer does not start, check if the correct size is set. Unlike other printers, Brother label printers have a function that prevents printing if the wrong size that is beyond the Maximum compatibility is selected.

Label Specification

This aspect is more straight and easier to understand. You simply need to ensure that the range of label sizes you are using fits within the specifications of the label printer.
