The Brother QL-800 series features both wired and wireless connectivity. Featuring the highest print speeds and the most connectivity options in their class, the Brother QL-800 series label printers are ideal for conducting business on-the-go while meeting the needs of the mobile workforce. The Brother QL-800 supports print speeds up to 93 standard address labels per minute with black text at 300dpi resolution.
All models — QL-800; QL-810W; and QL-820NWB — are PC/Mac compatible. The Brother QL-810W and QL-820NWB offer a seamless link to smartphones and tablets using built-in wireless connections. An optional Li-ion battery allows for a complete mobile solution.
“With the existence of mobile and the continued growth of smartphone adoption worldwide, incorporating on-the-go labeling solutions is key to ensuring seamless operations in today’s business environment,” says Robert Brady, QL product manager for Brother International Corporation. “Whether you’re a retailer looking to convey special pricing quickly or a food manufacturer seeking to print Made-Ready-Discard (MRD) labels, the new Brother QL-800 series is the perfect fit.”
For added functionality, software developers and system integrators can take advantage of the free Brother SDKs for both Android and iOS that allow for integration of label printing directly within their own applications and software.
Further capabilities in the Brother QL-800 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. For instance, users can design and print labels on the Brother QL-810W and QL-820NWB using the free iPrint&Label app by connecting via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth® wireless technology (on the Brother QL-820NWB).
Among other awards, the QL-820NWB label printer was recently Best Product: Technology in the North American Office Products Awards (NAOPA) organized by Office Products International (OPI). Now in its eighth year, NAOPA seeks out the best office products annually.
