Time to Upgrade to a Dymo Wireless Label Printer?

Label printers have been around for quite some time. They are an efficient way to quickly and easily create various types of labels. While I hope you no longer use a label printer to create “file labels,” there are still many uses for multiple kinds of labels.

DYMO Wireless Label Printer

I have used a DYMO LabelWriter Twin Turbo printer in my office for quite a few years. It allows me to print two different types of labels on one machine. For me, the left-hand side is for mailing labels, and the right-hand side is for printing on-demand postage stamps. I also have a weight scale attached to be able to weigh a letter or package so I can apply the right amount of postage. I wrote about using Internet postage way back in August 2007.

Wireless Label Printing

Both the printer and the scale do need to be connected to a computer using a USB cable. Fortunately, DYMO has upgraded their printers to allow for wireless label printing. The New DYMO LabelWriter wireless label printer makes printing labels faster and much more convenient.

The wireless printers allow anyone to print labels directly from Macs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets using the built-in Wi-Fi or by adding the DYMO LabelWriter Wireless to a network for easy sharing with others. This dedicated label printer with direct thermal print technology helps prevent unnecessary sheet label waste by printing precisely the right number of labels and eliminates the need for expensive desktop printer ink or toner. No matter the device used to connect, free DYMO software allows for quick design and printing of labels.

The printer is powered via USB cable either connected to a computer directly or by using the included power adapter.

A mobile app is also available for download from the Apple App Store or the Google Play store that allows printing labels from a tablet or phone.

Updating your label printer to a wireless version is a small and inexpensive option. Moreover, I suspect your staff would find it significantly more convenient to be able to print from any device to one or two different label printers.

The DYMO LabelWriter Wireless printer retails for $150. You can find it on Amazon for $135. You can also find it in many office supply stores.

Maybe, just maybe, you can get rid of that last typewriter that’s sitting in the corner of your office. Aren’t you having trouble finding ribbons?

How do you currently print labels? What types of labels do you still need?

  1. I’m not exactly sure. Go online and search for that model and “manual.” You can read through the manual to see exactly what’s included in the box and the options for connecting it to other devices.

  2. I think what you do could work just fine. I just really liked the wireless option, especially with the mobile app. I don’t mail many letters, but the on-demand postage works really well.

  3. Hey Steve, We currently have inexpensive B&W desktop laser printers at each desk. They use label sheets (8.5×11) and will re-use sheets and pick the next label box to print on (in word). So we aren’t really wasting here. Trying to think if there’d be some advantages to printing labels this way and the setup and use cases we would have for a good sized agency. I do appreciate the mention of the self postage as I may look into this. I’m sure someone in my office already has before my time but it probably has not been visited in a while.
