Setting up your DYMO 450 Turbo label printer for Windows PC

Before Getting Started:

Follow the below instructions to get your printer set up and ready to start printing barcode labels with Vend.

There are 3 steps:

1. Install the DYMO printer software

2. Set the print preferences in Windows

3. Select the label printing format in Vend.

Install the DYMO printer software (drivers)

The DYMO printer requires special printing drivers in order to print. Once we've installed them, we will be printing labels directly from Vend.

1. Download the software from DYMO's website.

2. Open the downloaded software, and follow the DYMO Setup Wizard to install the software.


3. Connect your DYMO label Printer directly to your computer via the USB cable provided.

4. Load your labels into your printer. For instructions on how to do this, please check your DYMO 450 Turbo instruction manual.

Setting the print preferences in Windows


1. Open the Start menu and navigate to the 'Control Panel'.

2. Locate the 'Devices and Printers' icon and open this.

3. Right-click on the DYMO printer and select 'Printer Properties'.


4. In the Printer Properties window, click 'Preferences' at the bottom and then 'Advanced' on the right.

5. This will open a window that shows the below settings. This allows you to verify that the paper is set to the same type of label you loaded earlier. 

Select the label printing format in Vend

The DYMO 450 Turbo is a continuous printing format printer. To get your labels to print correctly, Vend needs to know this format. To set this up, follow the steps below:

1. Navigate to the Setup page.

2. On the General Setup tab, click the 'Label Printer Format' drop-down box.

3. Select 'Continuous feed', and click 'Save'. 


Printing a Label in Vend

1. To print a label in Vend, go to your Vend store and choose the product to print a barcode for. Choose your label type and click on print.


2. In the Chrome Print Preview screen, click more settings and select the 'Paper Size' drop-down.

3. Find your label size code (or nearest label size code) here and click print.

Important: We strongly recommend printing out a run of 5 or more barcodes as a test to ensure that the alignment is correct.

Looking to print a bulk run of labels? You can do this through stock control.

You can also print labels for individual products by using the 'Print Label' button on an individual product page.
