Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions


Can a specific ribbon length be set before printing?

-Yes. There are 2 options:

  1. When using the templates under the Ribbon or Pattern one-touch keys, you will be prompted to set your ribbon length before you are able to print
  2. When creating a custom ribbon design (not a pre-designed template from the Ribbon or Pattern one-touch keys), press the Menu key and set your print length


Can the ribbon or tape be previewed before printing?

-Yes. Select the Preview button.


Can the ribbon or tape templates be saved so they can easily be re-used/reprinted?

-Yes. You can store up to 20 templates. Press the Menu key, select File, Save. To open a saved template, press the Menu key, select File, Open.


Can the ribbon or tape cartridge be swapped out even if it’s not finished?

-Yes, you can easily swap out ribbon or tape cartridges at any time.


Can margins be adjusted to minimize using extra ribbon or tape?

-Yes. There are 2 options:

  1. Under the Menu button, use the arrow buttons to scroll to Margin settings. Then select Narrow.
  2. Also under the Menu button is the option to Chain Print. This feature allows you to print multiple, different ribbons/tapes with a narrow margin.


Can P-touch Embellish satin ribbon be used in a regular P-touch?

-Yes, but no other P-touch model has these ribbon printing features or supports the ribbon printing length of up to ~1 yard long. Only the P-touch Embellish has firmware specifically designed to print on ribbon.
