If you print a lot of labels, but have trouble keeping track of your label sheets, then you should consider getting a label printer from Dymo. These are specially designed printers just for printing labels. It’s very compact, too, just 5 inches by 7 inches in size. Checkout the picture at right for the Dymo Labelwriter 400. You can get the Dymo LabelWriter 400 Label Printer (69100) from Amazon right now for under $90 with free shipping and one roll of address labels included. An additional roll of 350 labels costs $20.
I’ve had one of these labels printers for about a year now, and it’s a real time saver. The only trick is for me to remember its’ not the only printer attached to my computer. I dealt with this subject in an earlier post about printing to secondary printers.
Whenever I want to print a label in Microsoft Word, I click File, then Print, and then I select the Dymo Labelwriter 400 from the dropdown menu before clicking OK. Or, if you prefer to use the keyboard to print, just start the process with CTRL+P.
This method works great with the contact management tip I provided in yesterday’s post.
