Gift ideas for mom & dad with brother

by Stefanie Ruff on April 27, 2021

Hi everyone,

In the last few days we were allowed to test the brother's VC-500W color label printer and today we will show you what great things you can do with this versatile device. (Advertising, product provided free of charge)

SuzupapersBrotherLabel Printer

Thanks to zinc printing technology, the brother label printer VC-500W can print labels and photos in color without the need for a color cartridge. With zinc printing, the color pigments are already contained in the paper and are activated by different temperature impulses and exposure times. The printer itself is therefore very small and hardly takes up any space. 

The associated app "Color Label Editor" can be downloaded free of charge from the app store and can be easily connected to the printer via WiFi. With the self-explanatory app you can choose between a huge number of different fonts, colors, frames, cliparts and backgrounds and easily and quickly design your individual label and send it directly to the printer for printing. The special feature: you can also upload your own photos from the mobile phone and then print them out in crystal clear color! The labels are available in 5 different widths: 9mm, 12mm, 19mm, 25mm and 50mm. They are self-adhesive, so no additional glue is needed.
In addition to the color label printer itself and the associated power supply unit, the scope of delivery includes a USB cable that can be used to connect the printer to the PC, a cleaning roll, a 25mm x 5m label roll and detailed instructions.

There are a multitude of possibilities and there are no limits to your creativity and imagination! The label printer is suitable both for business use, for example to label the spine of files and office supplies, as well as for private use to create labels for spice jars or the like or to decorate gifts.

As Mother's and Father's Day is just around the corner, we have thought of nice little things for loved ones and pimped them up with self-designed labels. For our gift ideas, you can easily upcycle used products and / or buy some tasty things in the supermarket.


For flowery greetings to mom and a Father's Day care package, you need the following items:

First, create the design of your labels in the brother Color Label app with various fonts, cliparts, frames and photos and print them out. You can cut off the printed label with just a "swipe of your finger" on the printer and the edges are pre-creased so that the label can be easily peeled off.

Now stick and decorate your bottles, glasses, cards or other objects as you like, print lettering, personal greetings or photos, decorate with washi tape and ribbons and your individually designed gift is ready.

We hope you are just as enthusiastic as we are about everything that can be designed with the brother color label printer.
