There is only one roll that can be used with the Brother QL1050 printer. When ordering the roll from Pitney Bowes, the item number of the roll is 2F3-P. However, item number 2F3-P is not printed on the roll. Instead, the left bracket of the roll contains a label where the item number is DK-1241. If your roll is DK-1241, you are using the correct roll. The width of the DK-1241 roll should cover the entire width of the inside of the Brother QL1050 printer. If the width of the roll inside the Brother QL1050 is only half the width of the printer, then the wrong roll is being used.

Inside the printer is a black guide. The roll should be fed under the black guide. On the front panel of the Brother QL1050, quickly tap and release the Feed button once, to align the roll in the printer. Hold the Feed button for 1-2 seconds, then release, to ensure one label ejects from the printer.
