About Your LabelMANAGER 350
Electronic Labelmaker
GB
3. Close the compartment door.
The LabelMANAGER 350 electronic labelmaker
allows you to create a wide variety of highquality, self-adhesive labels. You can choose to
print your labels in many different sizes and
styles. The labelmaker uses D1 tape cassettes
in widths of 6 mm (1/4”), 9 mm (3/8”), 12 mm
(1/2”), or 19 mm (3/4”). These tape cassettes
are available in a wide range of colors. Visit
www.dymo.com for information on obtaining
tapes and accessories for your labelmaker.
Remove the batteries if the labelmaker will
not be used for a long period of time.
Connecting the Power Adapter
Connecting the power adapter to the
labelmaker disconnects power from the
batteries.
To connect the power adapter
1. Plug the power adapter into the power
connector on the top, left side of the
labelmaker.
Warranty Registration
2. Plug the other end of the power adapter into
a power outlet.
Please complete the warranty registration card
and return it to the appropriate customer
service address within seven days. See the
Warranty booklet for details.
Make sure you disconnect the labelmaker
from the power adapter before you unplug the
adapter from the main power source.
Otherwise, the most recent memory settings
will be lost.

Getting to Know Your Labelmaker
The following sections describe each feature
in detail. Become familiar with the location of
the feature and function keys. See Figure 1 on
page 2.
Upper and Lower Case
The CAPS key toggles capitalization on and off.
When CAPS mode is turned on, the CAPS
indicator is shown on the display and all letters
that you enter will be capitalized. When CAPS
mode is off, all letters entered appear in lower
case.
The Display
The LCD display shows a row of sixteen
characters. However, you can enter up to 99
characters/spaces.
The display is similar to a window that scrolls
across the text. (See Figure 6.) The number of
characters actually displayed can vary due to
proportional spacing.
Shift
The Shift key, when used in combination with
an alphabet key, changes the case of the
selected letter. When used in combination with
number keys or function keys, the Shift key
selects the alternate function shown on the
key. For example, when you press Backspace,
the character to the left of the cursor is
deleted; however, when you press ShiftBackspace together, the entire label text and
formatting is deleted and the display is ready
for you to type a new label.

a box, underline or background style. A label
can be underlined or enclosed in a box or
background, but not both together. The styles
available are shown in Figure 9.

Only one style can be used at a time. Styles
can be used with alphanumeric characters and
symbols. See “Adding Symbols” for more
information on printing symbols.

1/2" (12 mm) labels
• Maximum of one line on 1/4" (6 mm) labels
2. Use the arrow keys to select Set Tab Length
and press OK.
To create a multiple-line label
1. Type the text for the first line, and press
Return. A new line character
is placed
at the end of the first line in the display, but
will not print on the label.
3. Use the Up and Down arrow keys to
increase or decrease the tab setting, and
then press OK.
To insert a tab

2. Type the text for the second line.
The display shows the line on which you are
currently entering text. The example below
indicates that the second line is the current line
on the label.
2. Press the Tab key and continue entering text.
Using Symbols and Special
Characters
Symbols and other special characters can be
added to your labels.
You can use the arrow keys to move from one
line to another.
Adding International Characters
The labelmaker supports the extended Latin
character set using RACE technology. Similar
to using a mobile phone keypad, if you press a
letter multiple times within a very short time,
you will scroll through variations of that letter.
For example, if you repeatedly press the letter
a, you will see a à á â ã ä å and so on through
all the variations available. The order in which
the character variations appear depends on the
language you have chosen to use.
Using Mixed Formats
You can apply different fonts and format styles
to the text on a label by dividing the label into
blocks of text or pages. Each page is separated
by a page break. The number of lines that can
be added to a page is determined by the label
width. You can add two page breaks to a label.
Alignment, underline, box styles, and background patterns cannot be mixed on a label.
These styles are common to the entire label.
Currency symbols
The currency key e also uses RACE to scroll
through a number of currency symbols:
e £ $ ¢ ¥
The order these symbols appear depends on
the keyboard version and language you have
selected.
To add a page break
1. Enter and format text for the first page of
the label.
2. Press Extra.
3. Use the arrow keys to select Insert Format
Break and press OK.
4. Continue entering and formatting text for
the next page of the label.
Adding Symbols
The labelmaker supports the extended symbol
set as shown below.
Using Tabs
You can add tabs to a label to align text on
multi-line labels. Tabs are left justified and the
default spacing is 2.0” (50 mm).

Printing Options
You can print multiple copies of the same
label, print serialized and fixed-length labels,
review label text and format, and adjust the
printing contrast.
Printing Multiple Copies
You can print up to 16 copies of a label at one
time. When the Auto-Cut feature is off, a
dotted cut-line is printed between each label.
To print multiple copies of the label
1. Press Extra and then use the arrow keys to
set # Copies.
2. Press the Up arrow key to increase the
number of copies to print.
3. Press the Down arrow key to begin

4. Press OK.
5. Press Print to begin printing.
You may notice a brief pause in printing
between each label for more complex formats.
When printing is finished, the number of
copies to print returns to the default value of 1.
Serializing your Labels
You can print a series of labels with the last
number incremented by one number.
The number of labels serialized depends upon
the number of copies you selected to print.
Only the last series of numbers that follows
any letter, space, or punctuation will be
serialized. For example, abc123 will print as
abc123, abc124, abc125; and 123-998 will print
as 123-998, 123-999, 123-1000, and so on.

purpose that is a fixed length regardless of the
length of the text.
You can specify a fixed length for a label in
2mm (0.1”) increments from 40 mm (1.5”) to

cut after printing or you can manually cut the
labels using the Cutter button. By default,
labels are cut automatically. When manual
cutting is selected and you print multiple
copies or serialized labels, a dotted cut-line is
printed between each label.
2. Use arrow keys to select ON and press OK.
To change the cutting option

this fixed length.
3. Use the arrow keys to select Auto Cut On or
Off, and then press OK.
This setting will remain until you change it.
Previewing Your Label
You can preview the text or format of your
