I LOVE this thing! I got mine used. I've had it for years- it still works like new.

Mailing labels & shipping labels are EASY and the software generates bar codes the USPS can use so mail processes quicker through the USPS sort facilities.

The software is very good. It allows importing of PNG files as well as GIF & JPG. This is AWESOME FOR CREATIVES. Since the software is meant for office uses there's no kerning or leading in the typesetting process. This is okay. I use Photoshop or Illustrator at a 16-bit color depth and work in ultra-black to get the best contrast, exporting to PNG.
On large labels: My illustrated characters are printed on shipping labels. I distribute them as self promotion items and everybody delights in receiving them.
On tape labels: I use (primarily) the 19mm for design deco-tapes when I mail packages & envelopes that are meant to promote my creative work. I wish the larger width tapes had more color choices.
It is amazing what I can do with this printer and everyone just loves getting limited edition stickers and customized deco-tape on their mail and packages.
FUN FUN FUN

I do wish the labels wouldn't fade when outdoors in direct sunlight. I should note this isn't a good medium for urban art of that sort. This technology is not meant to produce labels for outdoor use unless intended to be temporary.

The 450 Duo is a good printer if you don't use the tape. (Labels only) Buy a twin label instead.
I tryed to get help when I first got it but the usual BS and generic replies are all I got. It is now three years old and very well used and works fine for labels only.

Great little machine

Comments about DYMO LabelWriter 450 Duo:

This little printer does not sit idle. It works hard going on 6 years now. I have three Dymos on line and they perform well. The 450 twin turbo is having issues now but still works on one side. The LabelWriter 450 is also doing great.

      I agree with the other reviewer's that the tape jamms occasionally, but I've found that if I load the tapes correctly, they won't jam. I love having such a quick machine at my desk. It makes filing a breeze!

        I admit we are not "heavy" users, but we have gone through 4 or 5 rolls of address labes and 2 of the tape rolls over the last 3 years and it has never failed to function as designed (except when I installed the roll upside down, oops) no problem, just installed correctly and everything was good again. Highly recommended!

          I use this product daily and I've never had a problem with it. I really like how simple it is to use and only went on this site to see how much they cost because I want to buy one for home.
          The labels are easy to peel; bend the label lengthwise as there is a split there already.

                    This 450 Duo was an upgrade from a 320. I like the added Tape printing on the Duo, and it's faster with labels. The software seems more full featured on the Duo, with its more word processor-like look, but still seems a little "clunky" for a long-time Mac User. I had some trouble getting the former address databases to import and stick, so I did copy and paste most of them. Maybe that was a needless mistake on my part, but once in, they worked predictably. Loading Paper label rolls and Tape cartridges is really a snap on these units. I downloaded the very latest driver (8.3), after having loaded an earlier version, and the newest one looked a little better, but I'm not sure if there was much functional difference. Overall, as a Mac User, I've been quite happy with two DYMO units, including this new 450 DUO.

                      I received this in my bzzkit from [@] , I am always apprehensive about hooking new things up to my computer as it always seems like I run into technical difficulties. Let me say, I installed the software, plugged it in, and was on my way. No problems. I didn't even need to read the manual to get started. So far I have had no problems with it, in fact I am really enjoying using it. I just wish I would have been able to get the bigger printer as I sell on both ebay and Amazon, and I always use the large labels with the barcodes on them. Having that printer would make my internet label printing so much more streamlined and quicker... All in all, I am very happy with this label printer...

I make jewelry and am going to put price and description labels on all my pieces. I am a member of BzzAgent and was fortunate to get into their Dymo LabelWriter Campaign

                          I just got this the other day and I just love it! It's helped me label and organize so many different things and I can't wait to see what else this thing can do!

                                The newest version of the software makes it very difficult to find the menus for using tapes instead of labels. Since I use tape infrequently, I have to keep looking up in manual where to find it, since its not intuitive.

                                The 450 Duo is a good printer if you don't use the tape. (Labels only) Buy a twin label instead.
                                I tryed to get help when I first got it but the usual BS and generic replies are all I got. It is now three years old and very well used and works fine for labels only.
