Q: How can I get my Dymo label printer to install on Mac OS X and Windows?

A: So you’ve ordered your Dymo LabelWriter printer for your home or office. You made a great choice and are going to save tons of time and money with your great label printer. Before you can redefine efficiency and productivity though, you have to get your printer installed on your Mac or Windows computer.

Just follow these instructions to get everything installed correctly:

Skip ahead to the Mac specific directions.
Skip ahead to the Windows specific directions.

1. Download the driver here.

Don’t use the disc that came with your printer, as this software is probably out of date. Instead, use the link above to download the latest version (8.5.3) for Mac.

Already installed the old version? No worries. Simply uninstall that version and then install the latest from the link above.

Open your downloads and click on the software download to finish installing. You will need to select “continue” when prompted.

Double-click on DYMO Label v.8.pkg to open the software. Follow the installation instructions and you should have it installed in no time.

Once the installation is complete, connect your printer to a power supply and your computer. Then you will be ready to test print.

2. Open the DYMO Label software from your Applications folder.

Once you’ve opened your software, select the label size that you have loaded in your LabelWriter printer. Enter text on the label and select Print. If your label doesn’t print, make sure that you have the printer connected to the USB port of your computer and verify that the printer is plugged in.
