Do Your Dymo Labels Work Outside The US & Canada?
Following the 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair U.S. Supreme Court decision eliminating the physical presence standard for sales tax nexus, 43 of 45 states with statewide sales taxes have adopted collection and remittance obligations for remote sellers, and 38 have implemented marketplace facilitator regimes. If you are being charged tax, it is because your shipping address is in a state where LabelValue.com is considered to have nexus, which requires us to collect sales tax.
If you are a tax exempt organization and your transaction should not include tax, you can simply input your information in the Tax Exemptions section of your account page.

Free Shipping 5-10 Business Days:
Free shipping for all US stock orders regardless of size or weight. Items shipped either USPS First Class, USPS Parcel Post, or UPS.
USPS Priority Upgrade 3-5 Business Day Shipping:
USPS Priority Mail orders are priced based on weight. Usually, you can expect to pay between $4.95 and $9.95 for this option for most orders. This is a great value option for lighter weight orders (< 12lbs) since the post office can usually deliver any priority package within 3-5 business days. USPS Priority is available only within the USA.

2 Business Day shipping is guaranteed by the 2nd business day and is strictly based on the weight of the order. This option is usually slightly more than the Priority Mail option, but is guaranteed to be at its destination by the 2nd business day.
Standard Overnight rates are also available at checkout. This is the fastest guaranteed shipping method we offer. Any order with this shipping option is guaranteed to be delivered the next business day.

Information about ordering shrink sleeves and shrink sleeve application on cans can be found on our shrink sleeve information page
While we will verify the scannability of the barcode in your digital art file prior to submitting to production, we do not guarantee the end-use scannability of any printed barcodes. We recommend adhering to the minimum barcode sizing requirements and styling, which requires a vector barcode in pure black on a white background with a minimum barcode size of 1.2" x 0.5". Additionally, if the barcode is being used on shrink sleeve labels, the barcode should be vertically oriented for best results.

Seiko SLP Printers

LabelValue.com uses both paper and polypropylene materials. Paper labels are a great solution to meet most of your labeling needs. However, on the occasions when you need a more durable, water-resistant label, we recommend using a polypropylene label. Polypropylene labels are commonly used for industrial purposes or for any other occasions when the labels need to withstand wear and tear.
Use a ruler to measure the size of the label, itself, omitting the backing from your measurements.
Our office is based in Tampa, FL.
No, the technology for North American DYMO LabelWriters is different than that used in the European counterpart. Thus, our Dymo labels do not work in machines manufactured for use outside of North America.
