    1. Put your printer near a Mac or Windows computer.
    2. Connect the A-Type USB cable from the printer to your computer.
    3. Plug the printer's power cord into any available power outlet.

      Your DYMO Printer will power on with a blinking blue light on the front, ready for label loading.

      You can now print labels using Label Printing or print via LabelWriter software (PC or Mac).

    Load DYMO Labels

    The DYMO comes with address size starter labels, so you’ll need to pick up ShopKeep compatible DYMO Barcode Labels from our store to get started.

    1. Open the top of the printer and remove the spool.
    2. Separate the spool and load labels face down on the roll.
    3. Feed the labels into the front of the printer. As far left as possible.

      The printer will take and align the labels and the front blue light will turn solid. You’re now ready to print.
