What Are the Steps to Print Dymo Labels Using MS Word?

Dymo printers are thermal printers that use label rolls instead of label sheets to create labels that are ideal to be used as shipping labels, mailing labels, address labels, name badges, and other types of labels for home and business use. The labels are fed one at a time which eliminates the need to print an entire sheet to create a single label.

If you are accustomed to printing labels from a table in Microsoft Word or simply want to use an address in the Word document as label output, then you can simplify the label printing task by reading this guide till the end.

First of all, you need to make sure that you have a Dymo address label. Dymo 30323 labels are a good choice for mailing and shipping applications. If you are looking for high-quality yet cheaper labels that you can easily use with your Dymo printer, buy compatible Dymo 30323 labels.

Secondly, install Dymo Label software. It includes a software add-in that allows you to quickly print labels from an MS document.

Now, follow the steps given below to print Dymo labels by using MS Word:

Step 1

Select the label content from the text of your MS Word document. If there is a table of address labels that have been formatted for sheet-fed output, click on a cell of the table to choose the content you want to print on the label.

If you want to print a subset of addresses present in a table on labels, select all the cells with addresses you need to print. But if you are creating a letter and need to print the address mentioned in it on the label, the Dymo Word Add-In will help you locate the address and select it for you.

Step 2

Once you have selected the address or content you want to print on a Dymo label, click on the File tab in the Word Ribbon present on the top and look for the Print tab. If your device is connected to more than one printer, then check if your Dymo printer appears in the Printer drop-down menu. If not, connect the Dymo printer first. Choose your Dymo printer from the list. 

Step 3

Now, click on the Print button and bring up the Dymo Word Add-In. Click on the Next button to check each label in the batch. Choose the output configuration from the Select Label Layout list or click on the “Options” button to view and select the desired layout from the gallery. Then, re-check the Select Printer list to make sure you have targeted the correct device.

Step 4

Click on the “Test Print” button to test a single printed label from a batch before you print all of them. If you are satisfied with the output, click on the Print button to print your label. If not, make the necessary changes, again click “Test Print” to verify the output before you print all labels.

Now, when you have completed the label printed task, remove the labels from their backing, and attach them to an envelope, document, packaging, or wherever you need them.
