Part No:  TP-M5000N
Also known as:  TPM5000N

The Tape Creator is aimed at suppliers, resellers and gift stores, and allows the creation of customised tapes in a variety colours and sizes.  

This could be ideal for both gift wrapping purposes, or branding for small businesses.

TP-M5000N Overview

This tape printer allows you to print customised tapes (eg. like selotape or packing tape), in a variety of colours.  This could be used for printing packing tape with warnings or customer logos & messages.  

But a good example of usage would be a gift shop that prints out personalised tapes for customers - eg. Along with buying gifts, wrapping paper and a card from the shop the customer could also buy tape that said "Happy 18th Birthday Nicola" - they can then wrap the presents and seal them with this highly personalised tape.

The TP-M5000N comes with network connectivity (10/100-base-T), and uses a combination of tapes and ribbons in widths of 15, 38 and 50mm.  

Using separate tape and ribbons allows a large combination of colours with fewer individual SKU's - as opposed to Brother's less flexible existing label tapes which have a large number of fixed colour and size combinations.
