More about this product


Print without ink

Powered by ZINK® Zero-Ink® Printing Technology, the secret’s hidden in the label rolls. Special colour crystals in the paper are activated by heat to create full colour labels without the need for additional ink cartridges. No ink means you save money, and makes the printer incredibly compact too.


Photo quality label printing

The Brother VC-500W is the first full colour label printer from Brother. Never before have you been able to print in multiple colours to create visually stunning labels for use all around the office. Or include full colour images such as photos or company logos for added impact.


PC and Mac connectivity

Connect to your computer using USB then design and print full colour labels from the Brother P-touch Editor label design software. Import images, add frames and include clip art to ensure your message gets across clearly. 

AirPrint for easy photo printing

AirPrint is a technology from Apple that helps you create full-quality prints without the need to download or install drivers. Print photos from your camera roll directly to the Brother VC-500W using your iPhone or iPad’s Wi-Fi connection.

Color Label Editor app for iOS/Android

Create labels on your smartphone or tablet and send these wirelessly to the Brother VC-500W full colour label printer. Unleash your creativity by choosing your favourite fonts, clipart, frames and photos to include on your labels.

Range of label widths

Available in 9, 12, 19, 25 and 50mm widths to offer maximum flexibility. Despite their compact size each label roll is 5 metres in length, long enough for even the most demanding of labelling tasks.
