Give your business and products a creative and stylish look with Brother labelers

It’s no secret that one of the keys to success when it comes to running a small business or selling products you’ve crafted is making it presentable and professional-looking.  

The so-called “eye test” shouldn’t be taken for granted at all—customers will love the feeling of purchasing something that looks great and feels premium, which is why you owe it to them to give them a product or experience that looks like it’s worth the money they spent.  

The easiest way to make a product or service feel premium is in the packaging and labeling. As mentioned, it’s the first thing that your customers will see, so it’s always a good idea to make sure your products leave a beautiful impression. 

You can easily make your products look high-quality and premium with the help of Brother’s label printers, such as the easy-to-use and portable P-Touch series.

 A breezy track on being in love

Up-and-coming artists KaixAaron and Maki relate the breezy, lighthearted feeling of being in love in their first ever collaboration “Thinkin ‘Bout Your Smile,” an R&B track with an upbeat tempo and a little retro sound.


The LA-based duo of KaixAaron said they initially worked on the song in 2021. “We decided to come up with a feel-good type of song. After a while, with the help of the talented producer named Felipe, we were able to create this wonderful track,” Aaron recalled.


The latest Tarsier Records release, which combines English and Tagalog lyrics, was meant to have a specific vibe. Kai shared, “That being-with-someone-for-a-while kind of vibe, having the feeling of knowing you went through so much together but at the end of it all, you could say ‘I love you’ to each other with no remorse.”
