LabelWriter 450 – 30 Day Money Back Guarantee!
Dymo has reintroduced it’s 30 day money back guarantee on the LabelManager and LabelWriter 450 range of label printers. This allows you to test the LabelWriter to see if it does what you want, and to make sure it’s compatible with your software.
The usual T&C’s apply – you need to keep all the bits, and the box, and obviously don’t mistreat it. If you decide you don’t want it anymore then call Dymo for instructions on how to return it. They’ll then refund the money to your bank account.
The refund doesn’t include the original shipping charges, so make sure to buy from an online store that has free shipping!
Applies to products purchased in Q1 2010. For details and a full list of qualifying products click here: LabelWriter 450 – 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

LabelPoint 350 – Back from the Dead
Further to previous reports in early December that the LabelPoint 350 had been discontinued, it seems that in fact it hasn’t. It has been revamped with a new look, but there are currently no stocks of the new model and the old model ran out faster than expected due to the Q4 Dymo Time campaign.
Confusing messages from Dymo led to several large distributors reporting that it was no longer available. However, over a month since the old stocks ran out there is still no ETA from Dymo on when stocks of the new version will be available…
Rumour: Labelwriter 4XL launch imminent
The Extra Wide LabelWriter that we exclusively revealed way back in May 2009 is finally due to launch in the UK. It’s been a long time coming, but after several delays the new printer is expected to be launched imminently.
There is currently some confusion as to the name – several of the main distributors are listing the product as “LabelWriter 450XL” (to match the LabelWriter 450 series), while Dymo insiders indicate the product will retain the US name of “LabelWriter 4XL”.
A couple of stores are already listing the product on their websites, although none actually have any stock at this time.
You can now pre-order the Labelwriter 4XL printers at the Dymo Label Printer website, and they will ship them for free by next day courier as soon as they receive the first UK stocks.
We will, of course, keep you updated with news on the Dymo 4XL label printer.
Dymo Driver: Windows 7 Official Release
Dymo’s response to our enquiries about the release of the official Windows 7 driver for Dymo LabelWriter printers is that there is still no release date.
We therefore advise people to use the ‘stable beta’ version of the driver (v184.108.40.2060) which can be found here:
Apparently, this works just fine with Windows 7 and we’ve not heard of any problems with it so far.
NEW! 4XL Extra Large Shipping Labels
The 4XL Extra Large Shipping Labels are now available in the UK from these leading Dymo suppliers:
4XL Labels at Dymo Label Printers
4XL Labels at Crazy Dave’s
However, these Extra Wide labels won’t fit in the LW300, LW400 or even the brand new LW450 series. They’ll only fit the Dymo Labelwriter 4XL Extra Wide printer which is aimed at e-bayers and e-retailers.
All we need now is for Dymo to actually launch the 4XL LabelWriter! Currently the launch date is Jan 2010, but as of yet no 4XL printers have been released to distribution. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear more from Dymo.
In the mean time at least you can order the labels and imagine what it would be like to own a printer capable of printing them… 😉
The labels are supplied in a stylish new black and grey box, rather than the standard blue/white of regular LabelWriter boxes. We’re not yet sure if they are repackaging the entire range, or if the black/grey look is just for the 4XL range. Picture courtesy of Crazy Dave.
