CUT!” appears, see pages 63, 67 for information about what you need
to do.
The number that appears here depends on the label you created.
Important!
• Make sure that cut tape does not pile up in the area around the tape outlet.
Tape building up around the tape outlet can cause the outlet to become
blocked, causing a tape jam and malfunction of the printer.
• For information about saving tape label data, see page 54.
Controlling the Appearance of Your Labels
In steps from 6 through 8 of the basic procedure described above, you
can also configure the following settings to control the appearance of

Creating and Printing a Large Tape Label
Though your printer can print on tapes up to 24mm wide, there may be times
that you need to produce even larger labels. You can do this by printing the
large label in sections, and then assembling the sections into the final label.
Important!
• You must have a tape cartridge that is 12mm wide or wider loaded in the
printer to perform this operation.

• Here we want to select the entire label, so we will select ALL. If you want
to print only one part of the large label, you can select 1, 2, 3, or 4,
depending on the number of pieces that make up the large label.
9. Use and to select the tape cut mode (page 38), and then press
SET.
• This starts printing.
Tape Width
Character Size
2 PIECES 3 PIECES 4 PIECES
12mm 24mm (15/16") 36mm (1 7/16") 48mm (1 7/8")
18mm 30mm (1 3/16") 45mm (1 3/4") 60mm (2 3/8")
24mm 30mm (1 3/16") 45mm (1 3/4") 60mm (2 3/8")
Page: 21
E 20
10. The screen shown here appears after printing of the last piece is com-
plete.
Combine the tapes to create the large label.
• If you use the above procedure to print on 18mm or 24mm tape, the
tapes that are output will have blank margins along the bottom and/or
the top of the upper tape and the top and/or the bottom of the lower tape.
You will need to trim off these margins before combining the tapes.
Another way to deal with margins is to use transparent tape. Then you
can combine them without trimming, by laying one of the tapes over the
other.
Controlling the Appearance of Your Labels
In step 5 of the basic procedure described above, you can also configure
the following settings to control the appearance of your label.
• Direction (horizontal or vertical)
• Mirror printing (off or on)
See page 25 for information about how to configure these settings.

FREE DESIGN: Changing the Size ofTape LabelText
Normally when you print, the printer automatically selects the optimum char-
acter size in accordance with the tape width and the number of text lines (Auto
Fit).
You can also use the procedures in this section to override the Auto Fit feature
and specify the character sizes you want to use.
There are two ways to specify the character size:
• Specifying the size of a string of characters
• Specifying the size of text lines
Important!
• Note that the character size values that you specify do not indicate absolute
sizes, but rather multipliers. A size of “2×3” for example, specifies double
the normal height and three times the normal width.
Specifying the Size of a String of Characters
You can specify the size in the range of 1×1 to 5×8 for a string of characters.
Note that the maximum vertical size you can specify depends on the width of
the tape you are using. For more information, see the “Tape Width and the
Number of Lines and Character Sizes” on page 72.
1×1 2×3
4×4 5×6
• Note that how a character size specification affects text depends on whether
the text is vertical or horizontal.
1×2 (Horizontal) 1×2 (Vertical)
6. Use the number keys, or the (decrease) and (increase) keys to
change the label length setting.
• Use a label length setting that is longer than the value that originally
appears on the display.

Character Size Mark
Character Size: This indicates the character size at the current cur-
sor position.
Character Size Mark: This mark indicates the point from which a charac-
ter size specification is applied.
Auto Fit Mark: This mark is inserted automatically by the printer to
indicate that the text to the right of it will be adjusted
automatically.
• The character size mark and auto fit mark appear on the display only.
They are not printed in the label.
• To delete a character size mark, move the cursor to the mark and then
press DEL.
• Deleting a character size mark causes the text to the right of it to assume
the size of the next character size to the left. Deleting the last character
size mark causes the size of the text to be set by the printer automatically

Using Tape Labels
Tape Cut Modes
When you are printing a series of tape labels, the tape cut mode controls
whether or not a cut operation is performed for each label.You can also specify
the type of cut operation that should be performed.
Note that cutting certain types of tape can damage the cutter blade.Be sure to
use the correct tape cut mode settings whenever printing on the type of tapes
listed below.
Types of Tape Cuts
There are two types of tape cuts,
half cut and full cut.
■ Half cut
With half cut, only the label part is
cut, without cutting the paper back-
ing.
• Half cut is may not be possible
with 6mm wide tape
■ Full cut
Full cut cuts both the tape and its
backing.
When printing on this type of tape:
• Iron transfer tape
• Magnetic tape
• Reflective tape
Always use this tape cut mode setting:
FULL CUT
UNCUT
Full cut
Half cut Half cut
For Sale For Sale
Cut Modes
You can select from among four different cut modes.
• Note that the type of cut operation performed depends on the cut mode and
the margin setting. See “Cut Modes and Margins” on page 40 for more
information.
• No cutting (neither full nor half) is performed when NONE is selected for the
MARGINS setting.
• Half cutting and full cutting may not be performed when label tapes are the
following lengths: less than about 31mm (1 1/4") when using the NARROW
margin setting, less than about 38mm (1 1/2") when using the MEDIUM
margin setting, or less than about 50mm (1 15/16") when using the WIDE
margin setting. In this case, use scissors to cut the labels after printing is
complete.
■ CONT HALF CUT
• CONT HALF CUT performs a half cut between labels, and a full cut when
the end of the printing is reached.

■ FULL+HALF CUT
• FULL+HALF CUT perform a full cut at the end of each label, and a half cut
near the beginning of each label to make the backing paper easier to remove.

■ UNCUT
• When UNCUT is selected, the printer does not perform any cut operation
between labels.
• This setting is best when you want to print labels without spaces between
them, which saves label tape.
• Be sure to select UNCUT when printing on magnetic tape and reflective
tape. After printing is complete, press FUNCTION and then FEED to feed
the tape, and then cut it with a pair of scissors.

Using Magnetic Tape and Reflective Tape
Special handling is required when printing on magnetic tape and reflec-
tive tape. Whenever printing on magnetic tape or reflective tape, select
UNCUT as the tape cut mode, and cut the tape using a pair of scissors
as described below.
Important!
• Using the printer's built-in cutter to half cut or full cut magnetic tape or
reflective tape will shorten the service life of the cutter blade, and can
damage the cutter mechanism.
1. Select NONE for the ALL FORM MARGINS setting (page 26), or
UNCUT for the tape cut mode.
2. Print the tape.
3. Press FUNCTION FEED to feed the tape.
4. Use a pair of scissors to cut the tape.
