Shipping labels are one of the most essential elements of the customer journey, and this is why it’s important to make sure that your shipping labels are professional and attractive. There are countless options on the market when it comes to thermal printers for shipping labels, but very few of them are as popular as the Dymo LabelWriter 4XL.
7″ x 5.5″ x 7.37″
Direct thermal printing
The Dymo LabelWriter 4XL has all the features that you need in order to print our shipping labels, identification labels, and other types of labels. It has an Auto-Duplex feature that allows the user to print two labels on each side of the paper at the same time, eliminating the need to flip the paper.
With the printer, you’ll get free DYMO Connect Software, which makes printing easier and more efficient because it allows you to create labels and has over 60 free templates.
The printer misses out on Wi-Fi connectivity, and that can be a big downside for some people, but there is no Ethernet port either. It does come with a USB cable for both power and data transfer.
When it comes to performance, the Dymo LabelWriter 4XL is a great choice for anyone looking for a simple printer for printing out 4 x 6 labels. This thermal printer has a fairly good printing speed of 50 labels per minute, which is average for a printer in that category. Printing bigger, 4 x 6 labels was slower, as expected, coming in at around 16 labels per minute. If you want a faster printer, the Zebra ZD620 is a better choice.
The 300dpi resolution does a good job of making your labels look sharp. The output quality is as you would expect from a 300dpi thermal printer, and it does the job for most people.
The Dymo LabelWriter 4XL is a fairly compact printer, but a bit bigger than the likes of Rollo Shipping Label Printer or the Brother QL-1100. The design of the printer is fairly plain and simple. It has a glossy black finish with silver trim, and the front of the printer is where you’ll find the power button.
There are no controls on the printer itself, so you’ll need to use the software supplied to set up the printer and print your labels.
Who is it for?
The Dymo LabelWriter 4XL is a great printer for small businesses and online sellers that need to print out 4 x 6 labels, warehouse labels, or barcode labels. If you don’t need to print labels that are that big, you are probably better off with the smaller Rollo Shipping Label Printer or the more affordable iDPRT SP410 Thermal Label Printer.
