I use tze 2311 now. Is this compatible?
asked by Joe Fabeetz on December 13, 2016
    0 votes

From my understanding the Brother TZE2311, is a multi pack that consists of :

  • 2 ROLLS of Black on White Laminated Tape 1/2 in x 26.2 ft - (12mm x 8m) TZe231
  • 1 ROLL of Black on White Laminated Tape 3/8 in x 26 ft - (9mm x 8m) TZe221

This being the case, if you are currently using tape from the BRTTZE2311, the BRTTZE231 is compatible.

How long does it take for the ink to dry?
asked by Carmen on February 13, 2014

Hi Carmen,

Thank you for your question about BRTTZE231 label tape.


TZe is a thermal label tape, so there is no ink to dry. Your P-Touch Label Maker uses heat to transfer your text to the label. So, with no ink-drying time to wait out, you can handle and apply you labels right away.


Thanks again for your question!

Our labels are coming out kind of gray and missing half the text.
asked by Megan on February 13, 2014

Hi Megan,

I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your TZe label tape. Luckily, I think I know what the problem is.


How long have your had your tape? TZe Tape has a shelf life of 15 months. That means that after 15 months in the cassette this thermal label tape starts to degrade, resulting in lower print quality. Past the shelf expiration period, the older the tape, the worse the results. A fresh cassette should solve your problems. 


Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.


You can use TZe 231 label tape your machine, and with any P-Touch Labeler that accepts 1/2" label tape.


You can find a list of all compatible labelers here.


Hope this helps!

Does the same cartridge work for the PT 1180 and the PT 1280?
asked by Glenda on April 23, 2015
    0 votes

Both the PT-1180 and PT-1280 use 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" TZ Tape. However, the PT-1280 can also accommodate the super-narrow 1/8" TZ Tape.

Please let me know the shelf life of brothers TZ tapes.

 Brother® TZe Labeling Tapes don't expire. They are ok to use whenever you pop them out of the package and into your machine.
