The Brother P-Touch Durability Test: The Sequel & Update

by Daddy Mojo on March 20, 2012

In January I wrote about how durable the Brother P-Touch is and how it helped me straighten up the garage.  True to the hectic life of a stay at home dad those test strips are still on the floor of the garage and look as good as the day I put them down there. 

Since that time we’ve used the Brother P-Touch to create labels for all sorts of children’s related activities.  It would be so cool to say that I created labels for my vintage Star Wars collectibles and comic books, but the labels are much more useful for things relating to our toddler.  That, plus nobody is getting near my comic book stash.

For example today I made a rice dish for teacher appreciation day.  On the plastic storage unit I make a quick label, placed it on the lid and should see it, minus the rice when I go to school on Thursday.  Our toddler’s teacher does a great job, but there’s no way we’re giving up a high quality piece of plastic ware.

Whenever Toddler Mojo goes to school he takes his favorite cup, which has been conveniently branded with a label from the P-Touch.  Again, his classmates are great, but kids lose things when there’s not a name attached to it.   He’s had that label on his cup for six months now; it’s holding up strong and has been through the dishwasher dozens of times.

Even more surprising is the jacket that Toddler Mojo wore to school.  On the back of the hood it has his name on a label attached to the fabric.  That label is still holding on strong and it too has been through the washing machine a couple of times.

Having a label withstand contact in the garage I expected.  I did not expect the labels to survive the dishwasher and washing machine, color me surprised.


I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Brother P-Touch and received a product and gift card to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
