DYMO Labelwriter Installation and Setup
Turn on and connect your Dymo to your computer. Please be sure version 8.7 of the Dymo Label Software is installed on your computer. This is not just the Drivers for your printer; it’s a bundle that comprises the most current drivers as well as the necessary software framework to allow InventoryLab to communicate with the device. Version 8.7 is always available from Dymo, which you can access here. After downloading and installing the DLS software for your OS, log out of InventoryLab and restart your browser.
Completing the following steps will allow you to use your DYMO Labelwriter while using your Chrome browser.
Access the Printer Setup area inside InventoryLab. To navigate there, click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of InventoryLab and click Settings then select the bottom Print Setup tab. On the setup page, click on the Setup a Printer button located in the upper right corner of the screen.
This is going to bring up the Printer Configuration screen. Click on the Dymo Image Button.
InventoryLab will now run a check to ensure that the DLS software is installed and actively communicating on your machine. If the software is installed and functioning, you’ll be taken to the Selection window to choose your model of DYMO, label type, and orientation of the labels. If something isn’t working, you’ll see a window advising you to install the latest LabelWriter software for your computer (it will say Mac or Windows depending on your computer OS):
If you do see the above window, click on the download button and download the latest version of DYMO software and install it after unplugging your printer. Once the software is installed, plug your printer in and come back to the InventoryLab screen. Click on Next and you should be taken to the DYMO printer model and label selection window.
Use the first drop-down to select your DYMO Printer Model, then in the next drop-down pick the type of label stock being used as well as the roll side if applicable for your printer.
The DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo is only able to print from 1 side within InventoryLab. If you run out of labels and need to switch to the other side, you will have to run the Setup a Printer process again and choose the correct side with the remaining labels. Once your choices have been made click the Done button.
Make sure on the print setup page, you have Automatically print label after submit selected. If this option is selected, it will print based on the quantity of your listing each time you save.
For the Turbo printers, if you are not using label 30334, you may have to select Print With High Quality so that the barcodes and text are legible on the label. We have found that using the 30334 label, speed does not affect the quality due to the orientation of the label in the printer, regardless of the model of printer you use.
If you would just like to use the Print button from the closed batches page or during list and prep, then leave the option un-marked and select save.
