Here’s the Thing About That:
Dymo Printers Don’t Need Ink to Function!
See, Dymo printers rely on a process called direct thermal printing. Meaning they employ labels made of a material that is coated with a chemical agent that reacts to heat. When the labels pass under the wall of heat dispensed by the printer, they blacken in those areas where the heat is applied to the chemical agent. This turns the areas of the label black, resembling printed black ink.
So you needn’t buy any more ink, toner, or cartridges. I’ve got dollar signs in my eyes just thinking about it, but that’s not the only thing that makes Dymo printers so special.
While your Dymo doesn't need ink, sometimes your printer may have an issue where it "prints" blank labels - read our troubleshooting guide on how to fix this and other common issues.
The Key to Printing with Dymo: Great Labels!
You: Okay, so the printers don’t use ink. Then why do my labels appear so faded? That’s proof of a lack of ink, isn’t it! Stop lying to me!
LabelValue Heroes: Hey man, take it easy we’re not lying to you. The reason some prints appear faded is because the label itself is not up to snuff. Dymo printers rely on the label to do the heavy-lifting, so it's of the utmost importance that you get the best labels for your printer aka LabelValue labels. At LabelValue you’ll receive only labels of the highest quality, and that’s a guarantee we stand behind. In fact, our top Dymo compatible labels have over 500 combined 5-star reviews!
Dymo Printers are a Breeze to Operate
Dymo printers are compatible with Mac OS systems of 10.8 and above and Windows operating systems of 7 and above. Just attach the USB to both the printer and computer, and the software should install in a matter of seconds. You needn’t worry about any steep learning curve, either. The Dymo software interface - talk about intuitive! It comes with many easily accessible templates, on which, you are free to input the necessary shipping and address information. You can even print using Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Quickbooks, and similar programs if its suits you.
Quick and Efficient
Dymo label printers are capable of printing upwards of 50 labels every minute. The turbo version, well that prints a whopping 70 labels per minute. Suffice to say it's perfect for your small business or home office. It comes with an address label starter roll. The Turbo, too, comes with an address label starter roll, but has the added benefit of printing postage, further saving you time and money.
Not to mention Dymo printers are set up to make installation of the label roll as easy as can be. Simply open the hood of the device, remove the spool, separate its pieces, and slide the roll onto the spool. Reattach the pieces of the spool, and insert the label roll. Put the label roll into the internal slot, and you’re good to go. The entire set-up process can be completed in a few minutes.
A feature you’re sure to love is the Address Fixer. Now, this feature is especially nifty because it ensures that you never again fill in an incomplete address. The feature, afforded via internet connection, verifies US addresses by making sure it matches an address in the US database. So you needn’t worry about printing an address as 5704 West Sleep Avenue, Tampa, Fl when you really meant 5704 West Sligh Avenue, Tampa Fl. It’ll make sure that the format of the address is input correctly, and even autocomplete the nine-digit ZIP+4 barcode for you. Think of it as a souped up version of spell check.
