The Brother P-Touch ST-5 was built for kids and has the simplicity to operate and durable design needed to keep up with them. This extremely user-friendly device allows users to create fully customizable labels with pictures and fun layouts. The Brother P-Touch ST-5 label tapes come in various colors and sizes for even further customization and organization.
This label maker has 3 LCD indicator lights to verify this little handheld printer's status. Users can program in their name and the Brother P-Touch ST-5 will actually remember and welcome you each time the machine is in use or turned on. Not only can this device recognize the operator's name, users can enjoy hours of time playing the Fast Finger game to help improve their typing and eye / hand coordination.
Unlike traditional label makers that will print labels in black and white or the occasional solid color, this label maker can print with up to 3 different colors on one label. To accomplish two or three colors on one label you will need special multi-color printing inks with the Brother P-Touch ST-5 label tapes. The machine has several frames and layouts to help provide character and add some fun when labeling.
This machine lets users choose their desired font ranging from generic Arial fonts to elaborate circus picture fonts and animal picture fonts. The next step would be to choose one of the three styles you would like your font to appear in, either normal, outline, or bold. The last step before typing your label out is to select a frame and or desired picture(s) you want the label to have. After you have chosen the layout, all that's left is to type and cut your label.
This device does contain a sharp blade that allows users to manually slide and cut the label tape. The blade should always be handled by an adult and when replacing the blade, be sure to trash the old / used blade immediately after taking it out. This handy machine will organize your environments with customizable Brother P-Touch ST-5 label tapes. Another cool feature included with this machine is the secret code messenger that will encode and decode messages created with other Brother P-Touch ST-5 machines.
