Frequently Asked Questions for Dymo Labels
a. What is the best shipping label printer?
The Dymo LabelWriter 4XL is probably the best printer for shipping labels, especially in getting the most bang-for-your-buck. Although cheaper than most of its segment, the Dymo 4XL doesn’t lag in features and performance. The LabelWriter can compete with top-of-the-line thermal transfer printers that can print thousands of labels monthly.
Moreover, the LabelWriter 4XL from Dymo is the easiest to use out of the box, for both Mac and Windows. The LabelWriter requires zero calibration during setup while printing smoothly with any connected device. Creating shipping labels is fast and easy, including printing 4″ x 6″ shipping labels directly from eBay. Other printers that are also popular for shipping labels include the Rollo Label Printer, Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo, Brother QL-700, and Zebra GK420D.
b. Can a Dymo Letratag run out of ink?
The Dymo Letratag can’t run out of ink since the label maker doesn’t use ink. It instead uses thermal transfer technology to print the desired texts and images on labels. The same can be said with other LabelMakers from Dymo, which only use self-contained tape cartridges and no ink. If you notice some fading on the prints, replace the printer’s batteries or clean its print head.
c. Are Dymo labels removable?
Our Compatible Dymo 30323 Shipping Labels 2-1/8″ x 4″ (220 / Roll) are easily removable without leaving a sticky residue.
d. How do I make Dymo labels?
Printers from the LabelWriter series have a Dymo Label software for creating custom label designs. After installing your LabelWriter on your computer, open the Label software and choose your label size option on the left. Try adding different elements to your label design using the Insert menu. Select the text or barcode elements that need to be filled in dynamically. Double-click on the element and launch its Properties window. Select Advanced and type-in the name filed of a merge field as the Reference name. Save the label file and print anytime you are ready!
