About Your New Label Maker
With your new DYMO LabelManager™ 450D label maker, you
can create a wide variety of high-quality, self-adhesive labels.
You can choose to print your labels in many different font sizes
and styles. The label maker uses DYMO D1 tape cassettes in

outlet.
x Make sure the label maker power is turned off before you
disconnect the power adapter from the main power source.
Otherwise, your most recent memory settings will be lost.
Inserting the Batteries

label by inserting format breaks to divide the label into blocks
or sections of text. Each section is separated by a format break.
You can add two format breaks, allowing you to apply three
separate formats to a label.
Alignment, underline, box styles, and background patterns
cannot be mixed on a label. These styles are common to the
entire label.

UPCA, UPCE, EAN8, EAN13, CODE39, and CODE128.
You can print a barcode on 19 mm and 24 mm label tape; and
you can print only one barcode per label.
The barcode prints horizontally along the label with the text
in small print underneath the barcode. You can optionally
add text before and after the barcode. Or, you can add text
above or below the barcode by creating a two-line label. See
Creating Multi-Line Labels on page 10.
Four of the standard barcodes require a fixed number of
characters to generate the barcode: EAN8, EAN13, UPCA, and
UPCE. CODE39 and CODE128 barcodes allow a variable number

text and formatting as follows:
• Automatically stores the last fifteen labels printed.
• Allows you to store the text of up to ten labels you use
frequently.
• Allows you to name and store up to ten commonly used
label formats.
Storing Label Text
