Hohoho and/or LOL – New Dymo holiday labels are laughably bad

The new Dymo XMAS labels (or “holiday labels” as they are officially called) have finally been released, although so late they nearly missed Christmas (sorry, “the holidays”) altogether.

However, they are pretty bad. Ok, really bad.  “Unintentionally hilarious” is the best way to describe them.

The Tree design, to be fair, does look like a Christmas tree. kind of. without any decorations, and for some reason white on a green background. but still a tree.

The others, however, are somewhat weirder.  Firstly there’s one one that is widely referred to as “the moose“. Perhaps it is supposed to be a reindeer?  Or just some generic, non-holiday specific, moose like creature. Who knows, but I can’t believe people will be queuing up to buy brown and white address labels with a moose on… So bad it will probably be a collectors item one day…

And lastly, there is the red label which is like… uh… well… um… not really sure what it is supposed to be and/or represent.  It’s basically a woolly hat and a moustache.  Is it supposed to be a trendy Santa – without a beard?  I child with a comedy fake moustache ready to go and play in the snow…? who knows!  But distributors have nicknamed it “the lumberjack” – not very festive or holiday like, but I guess it may find a niche market amongst lumberjacks, hipsters and “lumbersexuals” (yes, that’s a thing, google it!)

Anyway, they’re “limited edition” so if you want to buy some in the hope you’ll be able to flog them on ebay as collectors items when the majority of them probably get pulped, you can find them here:

Current Dymo Promos & Offers

Make out like a bandit by taking full advantage of the 40% cash back promo at the Dymo Shop!

The Dymo Shop is currently running a Cashback promo on orders over £50 that contain at least one printer.

The cashback is 20% for orders between £50-99.99 and 40% between £100-500.  Most printers qualify for the cashback offer, except the new XTL industrial range and a few odd ones like the M1011 industrial embosser.

But if you’re planning to buy a printer, you can make out like a bandit if you’re smart about it.  Take the popular LabelWriter 450 as an example.

Firstly, this is already a bargain – the normal machines are £69.99 (all prices ex vat) but Dymo currently have a bundle kit consisting of the very same printer bundled with 3 rolls of labels for only £47.99 – So the same printer, for £22 less, plus 3 rolls of labels!

But, it gets better.  The LW450 bundle is included in the cashback offer!  ok, at £47.99 it doesn’t qualify.  But if you add a single box of the most popular labels (99012’s) at £11.49 then now the total is £59.48 – but now you get 20% cashback (£11.90) meaning the final price, minus cashback, is £47.58!  So now you have a £69.99 printerplus 3 rolls of labelsplus a box (2 rolls) of 99012 address labels for only £47.58!

If you are likely to want more 99012’s in future (and most people do) then why not add more and push it into the 40% cashback territory?  Add 5 boxes of 99012’s to the printer and the total is now £105.44 – but you can get 40% cashback on this, so you would end up paying (after cashback) only £63.26!  So you started with a printer bundle pack for £47.99, added 5 boxes (10 rolls) of the most popular labels and you’re still paying over £6.00 less than the price of the regular printer on it’s own!

I think that’s the most exclamation marks I’ve ever used in one article…

But remember, only one order per customer, and it must contain a printer. So to take advantage of this you need to order it all together in one go.
