Similar to B rother Industries, Ltd ., Dymo is also one of the most popular brands, known for its versatile convenience features. As a subsidiary of the American manufacturer Newell Brands Inc ., Dymo Corporation produces handheld label printers, thermal-transfer printing tape, embossing tape label makers, and other printers such as CD and DVD labelers, as well as durable medical equipment.

Why Dymo Labels Are Popular on The Market?

Just like Brother, Dymo Corporation is not a key player in the entire direct thermal labels market, but it is a key player in the consumer thermal labels segment. Its strength lies in supreme versatility and premium convenience.

With the Dymo Connect app , users can easily print versatile labels. Additionally, Dymo labels are compatible with other major brand printers on the market, unlike Brother.

Versatile Design and Print

Unlike Brother labels , which use a cartridge to help Brother printers automatically identify label sizes, users printing with Dymo labels have to select the exact label size from all the pre-set sizes in the Dymo printing app, such as Dymo Connect.

For example, you can select 4” x 6” for shipping labels, 2.25” x 1.25” for barcode labels, 1 1/8” x 3 1/2” for address labels, and 2 5/16” x 4” for multi-purpose labels.

Besides the regular label sizes mentioned above, Dymo also offers special size labels for specific applications, such as rat tail labels for price tags and barbell style labels for jewelry tags

Compatible with Other Printers

Unlike Brother labels, Dymo labels are also compatible with other major brands in the market, such as Zebra, Rollo, and Munbyn. However, for printers like Rollo and Munbyn that load labels outside of the printer but on a holder, only Dymo labels wider than 1.57” are compatible due to their minimum printing width requirement.

Trade- off: Expensive

Dymo labels are versatile and offer good compatibility, but there are trade-offs as well. Like Brother, Dymo genuine labels are several times more expensive than other brands' labels of the same size, such as 4” x 6”.

Another unfortunate issue is that the latest generation of Dymo 550 and 5XL series printers require labels with Dymo's unique RFID chips, preventing users from using more affordable third-party replacement labels, including BETCKEY. However, if users are still using older generation printers like the Dymo 450, third-party labels are still compatible.

What Regular Size Dymo Labels Offer?

4” x 6” Shipping Labels - 1744907/S0904980

Dymo offers 4” x 6” shipping labels with model names 1744907 or S0904980. North American users are very familiar with these 4” x 6” labels because this is the major shipping label size used by parcel carriers, including FedEx, UPS, USPS, and DHL.

However, please note that these 4” x 6” labels are only compatible with Dymo 4XL and 5XL printers because other Dymo models have a maximum printing width of 2.25”, which is much smaller than the 4” width. The good news is that other major brand printers that can print up to 4” wide, like Rollo and Munbyn, are compatible with these labels.

2.25” x 1.25” Barcode Labels - 30334/S0722540/11354

2.25” x 1.25” labels are another major size widely used by printer users, especially in the North American market, because this is the ideal size for barcode labels, Amazon FBA labels, and FNSKU labels. Dymo offers the 30334 model to fulfill this demand.

1 1/8” x 3 1/2” Address Labels - 30252/S0722370/99010

The 1 1/8” x 3 1/2” address labels are one of the best-selling Dymo labels. Most customers use them as address labels, but these labels have a wide range of applications, likely due to their medium size.

2-5/16”x 4” Large Labels - 30256/S0719190/1763982

Dymo offers these 2-5/16” x 4” large labels for multi-purpose use. This size, around 2.3125” x 4”, is similar to one of the most popular sizes on the east coast of North America: 4” x 2.5” labels. Many users choose these sizes as shipping labels, considering that 4” x 6” shipping labels may be too large for them.

What Special Size Dymo Labels Offer?

Rat Tail Labels for Price Tag 30373

Dymo offers 7/8" x 15/16"  rat tail labels for price tag applications targeting super tiny items. The label resembles a rat's tail, printing the price and barcode on a large area that folds back to attach to the small area, allowing the label to hang around the object. The central part does not have adhesive.

Barbell Style Labels for Jewelry Tag 30299

Dymo offers 3/8” x 3/4” barbell-style labels for jewelry tags. Similar to the rat tail labels, these barbell-style labels can also fold and adhere the back sides of each part together. However, the difference is that both parts are the same size, allowing users to print a barcode on one side and a price on the other side.

This design is widely used for jewelry tags.

What About Dymo Compatible Colored Labels?

Some of you may have noticed that Dymo only offers one colored label, the 30255 (1-1/8" x 3-1/2"). Not everyone needs yellow labels. What about red, orange, green, blue, or pink labels? This is where BETCKEY can help.

As the leading supplier of direct thermal labels compatible with Dymo 450 and 4XL printers, BETCKEY offers 6 colors of labels: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and pink, available in all sizes.

What About Dymo Compatible Removable Labels?

Just like colored labels, Dymo doesn’t offer many options for removable labels. Unlike the permanent adhesive used in most labels, removable labels allow users to easily remove old labels without leaving residue or damaging the labeled surface. These labels are particularly useful for products that require frequent price updates, such as seasonal vegetables or fruits.

As the leading supplier of direct thermal labels, Betckey offers r emovable adhesive options for all major Dymo label sizes.
