DuraReady Labels Support and Solutions

The most commom message we receive is that we sent out black labels and not the white ones that were ordered.  All of our labels appear black because this is the inked ribbon that gives the labels their durability.  You print the labels normally then peel off the ribbon to reveal the finished label underneath.

How to Design Your DuraReady Label Layouts

Many of our DuraReady labels have unique sizes different from standard Dymo labels.  We have created custom label templates for all of our labels and they are available in single zipped file. Using Version 8.x or higher of the Dymo Label Software

Select the appropriate custom DuraReady label template and design as you normally would.

How to Find Dymo Label Software v8.7.3 

HandCrafted Label Template Method

For greater layout control or when using Version 7.x or below of the Dymo Label Software follow this method. Many of our labels are a slightly different size then standard Dymo labels so it's best to use a Dymo label that's larger then the DuraReady label you are printing. This allows full control over what and where you print on the label. Begin placing objects in the upper left hand corner of the template. A little experimentation will help you determine your printing boundaries. Save your design once complete with the DuraReady Label # in name for easy recall.

Once you have completed your template you can print DuraReady labels from the Dymo Label program or incorporate into other programs.  Refer to the Dymo help files for ways to print from Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and Web browsers.

Trouble Shooting Printing Problems

  • Black ribbon is pulling off during printing

    This tends to occur if your printer is dirty or worn out.  The Labelwriter can collect a lot of dust and adhesive over time so the printer needs to be cleaned regularly.  We reccomend the use of the Dymo Cleaning Card at regular intervals. It's a moistened fabric card that you run through the printer on a regular basis.  The other common cause of ribbon shedding is a worn out printer.  If your printer has printed a large number of labels or used very cheap abrasive labels then it's probably worn out and time to replace.  The printhead and rollers of the Labelwriter do wear down and the printer will need to be replaced. 

  • Image is not dark enough

WINDOWS USERS:  You can try increasing the print density of the printer from Control_Panel/Devices_and_Printers/ right-clicking the Labelwriter printer you are using. Select Printing Preferences from the popup menu. Click the Advanced Button and then select the appropriate print density setting: Light, Medium, Normal, Dark. Press OK and then Apply.  You might have to experiment to see which setting works best with your printer.
