BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you're a small business owner selling products online or a warehouse manager overseeing fulfillment, easily creating and printing accurate shipping and postage labels are critical to workflow and logistics operations. The new Brother QL-1100 series of wide-format, professional label printers delivers unrivaled versatility to help your operations run smoothly and efficiently. The new series features the Brother QL-1100 and QL-1110NWB, both high-speed thermal label printers designed to reliably print high-quality, cost-effective labels up to 4" wide, perfect for shipping and postage labels as well as visitor badges, file folders, envelopes and more.
"Helping streamline workflows for entrepreneurs and small business owners has always been top of mind for our team at Brother, which is why we're excited to offer increased flexibility in designing and printing shipping labels," said Bob Brady, Product Manager of QL Label Printers at Brother. "Our new Brother QL-1100 series of label printers is the perfect fit for on-the-go business owners as they spend more time focusing on building their businesses and less time worrying about backend processes."
Auto Crop Features Help Save Time and Paper
The Brother QL-1100 series labelers have a new automatic crop function that addresses the growing needs of marketplace sellers, enabling users to automatically print product and other barcode labels from A4/Letter-size label sheet templates (Windows only). Whether you need to print one label or 30, you have the flexibility to print an entire sheet of labels or a section of labels with virtually no waste.
Print Shipping Labels Directly From Mobile
There is a growing need for small business owners to manage operations while on the go, and with the Brother QL-1100 series, you can now print shipping labels directly from your mobile devices. For example, Shopify merchants in the U.S. and Canada can buy and print shipping labels directly from their new mobile app, compatible exclusively with the Brother QL-1110NWB on iOS devices.
"At Shopify, we are always looking for ways to take the time-consuming task of handling shipping out of the equation so that our merchants can focus on growing their business. By optimizing these processes for our merchants of all sizes, they are better equipped to go head-to-head with bigger brands," said Rebecca Maiorino, Commercial Manager of Shipping & Fulfillment for Shopify. "Allowing our merchants to print shipping labels easily with Brother allows businesses to better manage and grow their businesses with reduced complexity, while creating a superior customer experience."
Choose the Best Option for Your Needs
Users can create labels with black print up to three feet in length from your desktop or mobile device¹, including PC, Mac®, iOS or Android™ devices. Both models offer a USB Host interface for additional functionality, which can be used with peripheral devices including scanners. The built-in, automatic, heavy-duty cutter is perfect for handling large print jobs and provides a clean, professional edge when using continuous tapes. The flagship Brother QL-1110NWB also adds wireless, Ethernet and Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, so you can create labels from your desktop or mobile device.
Further capabilities in the Brother QL-1100 label printer series include a variety of label design apps for desktop PCs and mobile devices so that users can design professional labels, including images and logos, barcodes, and frames. Users can design and print labels using built-in P-touch Editor Lite built (QL-1100 only), P-touch Editor with Microsoft Office add-in, or use the free iPrint&Label app by connecting via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth® wireless technology available on the Brother QL-1110NWB.¹
