Label your Inventory - Dymo LabelWriter™ 450 Review

I’ve touched a little on the Dymo label printers I use on my blog - “10 Proven Steps to Organising your Gemstone and Mineral Collection.” Here is my full review of the label printer.


LabelWriter™ 450 is an excellent tool as it’s very diverse. You can print labels like files & binders, mailing & shopping, assets & barcoding, name badges, price tags and those are just a few. I use the printer mainly for my Gemstone papers and address labelling.

How does it work?

The Dymo printer is a direct thermal printer and does not use ink or toner. Instead, the printer uses heat from a thermal print head to print on specially treated, heat-sensitive labels. Labels are the only supplies you will ever need to buy.


The design of the model is very sleek, smooth and looks great on your desk. Dimensions (width, height, depth): 124 mm x 146 mm x 184 mm


The DYMO Label™ Software v8.7.4, Mac® is a great tool as it’s very nicely designed and self-explanatory. You can store an address book for easy one-button print, create labels by importing data directly from Microsoft®* Excel, Outlook®, and Google Contacts insert and edit different types of barcodes and many more. Excellent planning and coding has gone into designing this software, Thank you Dymo


The printer is connected via a USB type B cable, there are other versions with Wireless options, please visit the Dymo website to find out more


There are over 20 different labels for this product, so you can do a lot with it.

The one I use the most is 32x57mm as it fits perfect on my Diamond parcel paper, also great for Address Labels, just a perfect everyday printer.

Eliminate the waste and hassle of sheet labels - prints up to 51 Labels per minute without difficulty

The price of the labels are not that expensive. As an example, my most used label comes in a roll of 1,000 and I buy it for an approx. £17.00 which works out just under £0.02 each. I find Amazon quite good for buying your supplies as quite often I can get them cheaper due to offers. Check your local stationary shop as the Dymo labels are almost everywhere, and some shops do price reductions to clear stock.


The price of the label printer varies in different shops, but the cheapest I've seen it was £49.99. Currently on Amazon is selling for £85.00 reduced from £128. Keep an eye out for Dymo Value Bundle which includes 3 rolls of different labels and a printer. I bought mine around Christmas time, so have a look around then.
