    • Simple Controls

    • Jams Easily

    Best Uses

      Comments about Brady Corporation Brady Bmp 21 Portable Label Printer:

      I oversee controlprojects at a refinery. Making wire tags in the field is a common task and finding a good label maker has not been easy. A lot of claims and many short comings. This product is not as good as I would like but is the best so far. Getting a new cartridge to work is a pain; some of the printing is not legible. It is easy to use once the tape is working. The cartridges are short and have to be replaced often. It is good for a tech in the field that runs into a bad or missing tag now and then. Not so good for "as-built" issues. Fix the jams and you have a 4 to 5
