Pros

Good physical design and construction--well laid out and easy to use for basic operations, feels good in-hand.

1 agrees

Preview function allows you to preview the amount of tape that will be used for a project--something missing from most other label makers.

1 agrees

Plenty of decorative options, such as iron-on clothing label printing.

Button at the top allows for easy label clipping.

Cons

Always prints an extra inch of tape every time, wasting tape and resulting in more work as you have to manually cut off the extra inch.

2 agree

Label tape is very expensive compared to competing brands/models.

1 agrees

Keyboard isn't QWERTY but is rather laid out alphabetically.

1 agrees

Some of the more complex functions require a bit of trial and error to learn properly.

The Brother P-Touch PT-1090 is a label maker / label printer designed for producing standard as well as stylish labels. Featured are 12 Deco Mode Patterns, making it possible for users to even print their own clothing labels. Plus the included tape is indoor-outdoor laminated, meaning the labels are waterproof and kitchen-friendly. Also included are many tape color options, an easy system for adding cartridges, an ergonomic shape good for small hands, a self-contained design with no pesky cords, and a pictograph function for adding symbols to text. Despite being marketed as family-friendly, the Brother P-Touch PT-1090 is known to take awhile to master. Overall it’s an entry-level model recommended for users not quite ready for a professional-grade model.
