Steps to Make Stickers/Labels Using a Dymo LabelWriter Printer

Now, we will discuss the steps in customizing stickers using the Dymo app. The steps below are for stickers that use QR codes but you can still follow them for other purposes.

Step 1. Download And Install Dymo Connect

  • Go to Dymo’s support page.
  • Click on the “The Latest Software & Drivers for all LabelWriters® and LabelManager®” dropdown menu.
  • Download the appropriate software for your operating system.
  • After the download is complete, launch the installer.
  • Follow the installation instructions in the window that will appear.

Step 2. Connect Your LabelWriter to Your Computer

After installing the software, you need to connect your LaberWriter printer to your computer before you can print labels.

    • Get the USB cable, power adapter, and power cord that came with your label printer.
    • Connect the power cable to the power adapter.
    • Plug the power adapter’s opposite end into your printer.
    • Plug the power cord’s opposite end into your power outlet.
    • Plug the USB cable into your printer and your computer.

**Make sure that you finish installing the Dymo Connect software first before connecting your printer to your computer.

Step 3. Load Labels to Your Printer

  • Open your printer and lift up the spindle for the label roll to remove it.
  • Pull the flat edge piece (spindle guide) off the spindle spool to remove it.
  • Add your label to the printer’s spindle. Make sure your label feeds from underneath.
  • Now, push the guide up to the label roll’s side and make sure that there is no gap.
  • Reinstall the spindle into the appropriate slot in your printer.
  • Align your label’s left edge against the label feed slot’s left side.
  • Push your label into its slot.
  • Your printer should start reading your label and pull the rest of the label.

**Make sure that no remnants of the sticky tape are left on your labels. Or else, your label might stick to your printer and cause jamming.

Step 4. Using the Dymo Connect App to Print Your Labels

After installing your label, follow the steps below to print labels:

(a) Choosing A Label Size

  • On the app’s main screen, click the New button located in the topmost left corner.
  • Choose the Label Type dropdown menu.
  • Select or search your label’s size from the options.
  • Click on the Open button at the bottom.

(b) Downloading Limble Data

You need to import a spreadsheet containing the QR code information you are going to use because this is the faster way.

  • Log in to your Limble account.
  • Find the QR code you are going to use and click the Download URLs/Info button.

(c) Importing the Downloaded Excel Spreadsheet into the Dymo Software

  • In the app’s top main screen, click the Import data icon at the center.
  • Click on Browse and look for your spreadsheet.
  • Choose the sheet and rows (information) you want to import by ticking on the corresponding checkboxes at the left.
  • Once you are done selecting, click Import. A blank label will appear on your screen. You will find how many labels are in your document at the bottom right corner of the window. This number should be the same as the number of imported rows/information earlier.
  • Use the arrow buttons to scroll between your labels.

(d) Customizing the Text Box

The information you imported into the app won’t appear until you add the right information field.

  • Click on the ABC text on your window. You will see a purple square at the bottom of the text box.
  • Click on the square. You will be shown a list of information fields. Select the information you need.
  • To customize the text’s layout, just double-click on it.
  • You will see the information fields and the ABC text in blue. Delete the ABC field.

  • Click on the box once and then drag it to reposition it.

(e) Adding the QR Code

  • Click on the Add button from the editing window’s top-left corner.
  • Choose QR Code from the list of options.
  • Your QR code should appear on your label. Reposition the QR code if you want to by clicking on it and dragging it.
  • Click on the purple square at the bottom of the text box containing the QR code.
  • You will be shown the same list of information as before. Choose the URL corresponding to your QR code from the list.

**All of your labels will use the same format. However, the content for each label will be updated based on the information you imported.

(f) Printing the Labels

  • You can directly click the Print button at the bottom right corner of the window to print all of the labels. But if you want to customize your prints like setting the number of copies and choosing specific labels to print, click on the Settings icon at the right of the Print button.
