Dymo printer Frequently Asked Questions for Dymo 30324 and Dymo LabelWriter 450
a. Can Dymo print barcodes?
Print barcodes quickly and easily using the Dymo Label Software (DLS). The DLS comes free when buying a brand new Dymo printer and can also be downloaded from Dymo. To use the DLS, start by:
Choosing your label size and then dragging a barcode onto it.
Next, double-click the barcode to open its properties and then configure its settings to your preference.
Select from various sizes and other options that allow barcode texts to appear above or below, and more.
b. What is the best Dymo Label Maker?
The Dymo LabelWriter 4XL is perhaps the best label maker, especially when printing shipping labels. While cheaper than most of its class, the Dymo 4XL delivers comparable features and performance. The LabelWriter can go toe-to-toe with high-end thermal transfer printers capable of printing thousands of labels every month.
The LabelWriter 4XL from Dymo is also the easiest to use out of the box, for both Mac and Windows. It doesn’t need any calibration during setup while delivering smooth prints with any connected device. Printing shipping labels is fast and easy as well, including printing 4″ x 6″ shipping labels directly from eBay. Other popular label makers from Dymo and other brands include the Rollo Label Printer, Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo, Brother QL-700, and Zebra GK420D.
c. How do you calibrate a Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo?
To calibrate the Dymo LabelWriter 450 turbo, turn on the machine and load it with a label. Next, long-press the Feed button for 5 to 10 seconds. After the blue light starts flashing, release the feed button. The LabelWriter 450 will now begin calibrating. Press the form Feed button to stop the calibration.
d. Are Dymo labels waterproof?
Most Dymo paper labels have a thermal coating that makes them resistant to water – provided they are wiped off fast. So they can become impervious to water. Dymo also manufactured certain labels with plastic/polypropylene material. These labels are completely waterproof.
e. Can Dymo LabelWriter 450 be networked?
Yes, you can by sharing the Dymo LabeWriter 450 through a network using the Dymo Print Server. The Print Server from Dymo lets you connect every workstation on a network to a single Dymo LabelWriter printer. That includes one or multiple Mac and PC users connecting to a LabelWriter 450 printer.
You can also do this through a Windows Network. Start by opening the Printers folder: Start > Settings > Printers or Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes. Find and right-click the LabelWiriter you want to network and then click on Sharing.
Install the DLS (Dymo Free Label Software) from a different PC on your network. Click on Network / LAN once Windows prompts you to select a connection type and complete the on-screen instructions. Once the installation is complete, you can start printing Dymo 450 labels with the LabelWriter from local and network workstations.
f. How do I make my Dymo printer wireless?
You can easily connect a Dymo LabelWritier to a network through its WPS function. Start by pressing the WPS button at the back of your label maker. The wireless status light at the side of the machine will begin glowing. Long-press your access point or router’s WPS button for about 120 seconds. Wait for the printer’s status light to turn on and stop glowing to confirm a successful Wi-Fi connection.
