DYMO LabelWriter Duo

 

Both printers are part of DYMO's new generation of label printers, which includes the LabelWriter 400 Turbo, with a claimed speed of 55 labels per minute. The Duo is essentially a LabelWriter 400 Turbo mounted on top of (and nicely integrated with)...

Combines a standard label printer for paper labels with another printer for plastic labels. Same footprint as a standard label printer

Height and bulk make it more imposing than a standard label printer on a desktop

If you need a label printer for both paper address labels and permanent plastic, nylon, or polyester labels, the DYMO LabelWriter Duo excels at doing both.

Dymo LabelWriter Duo

 

This Dymo LabelWriter has two heads, hence the name, and as far as label printers go, it's up there with the best.

This is an extremely well-made and versatile printer for handling the specialist task of printing labels. Having the facility to print on robust plastic tape is a bonus and although the running costs aren't low, the results the LabelWriter Duo produces...

Dymo LabelWriter Duo

 

Who needs a label printer? Surely they're just a luxury you can bypass with a sheet of labels in your regular A4 printer? Well, not quite, particularly if you need to print individual labels to a variety of addresses. Dymo has built up a good range of...

This is fair, since A4 label sheets for a regular inkjet or laser printer cost about 40p per page from a high street stationery store, plus about 3p for toner or ink. The equivalent cost using this device works out at about 28p. But that's not what the...

Dymo 400

 

Buying a Seiko to replace it: had Seiko much longer, had to change because new Mac no longer had serial port to talk to Seiko. Should have bought adapter!

Reasonably easy to use

Tough to change label rolls; cranky when label size is different from last roll. Worked for almost 2.5 years and then DEAD ASA DOORNAIL

Good Bye Pitney Bowes

 

Great for the small office

I use my printer strictly for printing postage through endicia.com. The set up is easy and it sure beats the monthly rental and reset fees that are imposed by Pitney Bowes

Excellent printer

 

I love this printer saves me time and money

Ignore my bad review it was user error. I thought my printer was faulty but it was user error. You install the labels upside down in order for it to print. Awesome printer.Will let you know how in works when it hits it 1 year mark

the way the labels must be loaded the instructions are not very clear on which way you load the labels

Great

 

Doesnt need ink refills, stickers are cheap, program is easy to use.

This thing is one of the greatest inventions ever...... has saved me SO much time for my home cd sales and shipping business... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This will save you so much time

Ink sometimes fades when taped over... but that may just be some weak third party labels I use. The software program insists on being 'registered' any time you install it
