Last July, we allowed you to use regular printers to print barcodes and labels. Now we are giving you something better: you can now print barcodes and labels using a real label printer.
We have developed a way to print directly to a Dymo LabelWriter 450. Last July, we sent a survey asking what your preferred model is, and this is what majority of you were using. Plus this particular model is easy-to-use and affordable, so it was a no-brainer.
Already have the printer? Here’s how to set it up.
Before starting, please note that this feature will only work if you’re logged in to an Administrator user on your computer, so make sure you are logged in as Admin when you do the procedures below.
First, you have to install the driver for the Dymo LabelWriter 450. Download the drivers on their website. Make sure you download the latest drivers (at this point, it is v8.6 for both Mac and Windows).
The installation of the downloaded driver shouldn’t be that complicated. Just run the installer and follow the setup screen until you finish.
The installation should make a Dymo icon appear on the notifications tray. It will show a port number. Imonggo will connect to that port.
Now you have to set it up in Imonggo.
First, go to Settings > Premium Feature Settings, and turn on the Dymo Label Printing feature. You can do a Test Print, but only after you have click the Save button at the bottom. (Note: It might take a minute before Imonggo connects to the print, so just wait for a bit if the Test Print may seem to be failing.)
Now you can print barcodes to your Dymo Labelwriter 450! There are two ways to print.
- Print an individual barcode by clicking the barcode from the Products screen.
- Print multiple barcodes by searching for the stock number, product name or tags in the new Price Tags tab. It will show the barcodes of the products that match the search query, and you can print all of them at once.
Here is the printer in action:
One final note: For now, the only supported label size is 36 x 89 mm. We will add more sizes later on.
