Brother P-touch label printer

I have the Brother P-Touch Cube Plus PT-P710BT (Amazon link).

Unicode characters

When using the Windows-based P-touch Editor, you may have problems printing out Unicode symbols. This is caused by the program not having any fallback font mechanism. The unfortunate solution is to use this website's "Fonts that support" feature, and then search the app's font drop-down to find an acceptable font.

Streaks when printing

If there are streaks when printing, most likely you need to clean the print head.

To clean the print head, get a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. This is the area that you're trying to clean.

To avoid dropping any full drops of alcohol inside the machine, I usually "flick the Q-tip mostly dry" just before I touch the print head.
