Label printing functionality is designed to print labels on DYMO printers. It was tested on DYMO LabelWriter 320 and 450 models.

Requirements:

  • 54mm size paper and can print on both continuous paper and labels. Genuine DYMO paper is not required.
  • Using paper size less than 54mm will crop label reports.

Setting Up a Printer

  1. Install drivers for your printer model from the official DYMO site.
  2. Set paper size in printer properties
    1. Navigate to DYMO printer preferences under Control Panel → Devices and Printers.



    2. In preferences select Advanced.



    3. In advanced options select paper size.



      To use continuous paper, you must set paper size to "Continuous, Wide".

    4. To improve printing quality of Label Reports, set Print Density setting to "Dark"



    5. Please reboot your computer for these changes to take effect.

    6.  If you are still having trouble with printing of Label reports after the above steps, please in Advanced options select "30252 Address" paper size, click OK, then click Apply. And please repeat these steps for "Continuous, Wide" paper size.

  3. You can find out how to load a printer with paper in printer's User Guide available on the official DYMO site.
    Note that some non-genuine DYMO labels and continuous paper can't fit label spool spindle. In this case you can just put a paper roll inside a printer without placing a roll on a spindle.
