Dymo LabelWriter Software Review

“What is the Dymo software like? How easy is it to produce a label? What can and can’t it do?”
These are the types of questions you’re probably asking when thinking of buying your first Dymo printer. Hopefully this post will be able to answer your needs.

Installation

dymo-add-printer-crashFirstly this is a review of the software on a Windows computer. The software on Mac may differ slightly but I have yet to try it. Installation was quite quick and painless. Connecting a printer directly through USB installed with no problem at all. I’m using a LabelWriter 450 Duo so I get to try printing on both die cut address labels and continuous D1 tape. In the software itself you can add a networked printer. The networked printer would be a normal one through a Dymo Print Server. Unusually just launching this install wizard it ends up crashing itself straight away and then it closes with no further messages.

Print Like a Pro With Dymo

If you’re printing labels on a daily basis in your office, warehouse, shop or even at home, then there is a chance you’re using a Dymo product to do this.

Dymo is very well recognised globally for their printers and labels from industrial handhelds to office desktops. Dymo started in California in 1985 as an embossing company. In 2005 they acquired Newell Rubbermaid, a Fortune 100 company. Ever since then their product range has expanded to include card scanning solutions and shipping/mailing scales to name a couple.

Dymo have been looking to make everyones lives easier and their first step to doing this has been making a web app so choosing the correct printer and labels can be done in a breeze.

P-Touch E550WVP Unboxing & Overview

On first look prior to unboxing the Brother P-Touch E550WVP, you’ll notice how rugged and tightly-closed the hard carry case is. It gives a look and feel of high quality and professionalism.
The clips are plastic but very solid and not flimsy. If you’re like me and have small-ish fingers that tend to get injured easily then you’re likely to feel comfortable with opening and closing this case. The clips “click” closed but they don’t snap at you like a feisty terrier.

Dymo Labelwriter 450 Turbo Label Printer Review

Print Quality: 9-stars
Print Speed: 10-stars
Versatility: 8-stars
Ease of Setup: 9-stars
Ease of Use: 9-stars

The Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo is a very attractive little printer and is supplied with equally attractive labelling software in the form of DYMO Label V8 on CD. It is powered exclusively by a mains power adaptor and ships with a USB cable, quick start guide, roll of 35 x 90mm address labels and a head cleaning card. There is no stand-alone option. This printer must be used in conjunction with a PC.

To begin with the software, when you launch Label V8 you find yourself looking at a pleasing layout, the design window being on the right with the usual formatting icons along the top, plus a three-tab selection area on the left. The first of these tabs offers a range of ready-made labels, primarily address and shipping labels, each of which includes a subset of smart layouts featuring symbols and instant place-holders for text, plus your logo if you have one. Under the heading ‘Speciality/Retail’ there is just one forlorn item, which is a CD label that would cover about one-third of a CD. Here again there is a subset of instant layouts allowing curved text in various arrangements. Three file folder labels and one badge label are also to be found, along with a miscellany of multi-purpose labels including one for a VHS/spine!
