My father sent me a DYMO 330 Labeler and after using it to print out 50 or so shipping labels for DC Member Kits
I felt compelled to to post about it.
It's one of those things you might not realize that a device would make much of a difference with, but I have to say I'm really loving how super fast it is now to create a label.More Discussion:
The software and hardware are both great. You just start up the software, paste or type in the mailing address, and it quickly resizes the text to fit the label size and adds a BARDCODE
if appropriate. The auto resizing makes such a difference because it means the whole process is so fast.
I used to just use a full page of labels and print on my laser printer. Which is fine and cheaper, but you know it gets tedius always feeding the label sheets and keeping track of what labels are unused, etc. You might not think it's a big deal but this is one of those gadgets that actually does streamline the process.Alternatives:
The label results look great on my 330; the newer versions may be a bit faster or better in some minor ways but i wouldn't hesitate buying an older version on ebay at all.
There are other similar label printers, and I can't say if this one is better or worse than those, EXCEPT to say that i've tried one of these other kinds with the full keyboard, and multiple size labels. I found these things more annoying than useful. One of the pleasures is that this thing is so small and simple. The full keyboard ones are annoying if you ask me, and i never had the urge to use anything but the included software.Other Reviews:
