You probably already know that I’m in love with my Dymo 4XL label printer. If you aren’t familiar with them, it’s a printer that prints shipping labels on sticker paper. My favorite thing? The Dymo 4XL uses thermal paper and heat to print – so it doesn’t require ink! A few years ago when I got it, I wrote about how much I loved it – read that post here.
Recently, I’ve been doing more with my Dymo 4XL – like printing stickers to put on the outside of the packages I ship. Today, I’m sharing how I create these stickers.
How to Create Custom Packaging Stickers with a Dymo 4XL
- Head to your favorite photo editor. For this tutorial, I’m using PicMonkey. (If you design with Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space, you could also use them.)
- Set your canvas size to 4 inches by 6 inches (1500 pixels by 1000 pixels for vertical layout or 1000 pixels by 1500 pixels for horizontal layout).
- Create your design. When creating, remember that the Dymo 4XL only prints in black. I used the Berrylicious font to create my sticker.
- Once you’ve designed your sticker, save it to your computer using the ‘Export’ button. Then, print it!
Ideas for Stickers with the Dymo 4XL
- Thank your customer for shopping handmade (or local).
- Tell your customer that you loved creating their handmade order.
- Announce the arrival of their happy mail!
- Remind your customer to leave you a five star review.
- Use your business logo, name, and website to help promote your brand.
Get out there, and get creative! Your Dymo 4XL doesn’t have to be just for printing shipping labels.
