"In addition to faster print speeds and the ability to print stamps right from your desk**, our mobile business consumers will now be able to print labels wirelessly with our new iPrint&Label app."^
The Brother QL-700 series label printers were developed with customer convenience in mind. The Brother QL-700 is perfect for any business professional's desktop. The Brother QL-710W is a great solution for customers wanting a wireless configuration, and the Brother QL-720NW is available for customers needing a network model for a busy workgroup.
