About Your New Labelmaker

With your new DYMO M1011 labelmaker, you can create a wide variety of plastic and metal labels. The labelmaker uses DYMO

12 mm (1/2") label tape. DYMO plastic tapes are available in a wide variety of colors. Metal tapes are available as follows:

Aluminium with adhesive (35800)

Aluminium without adhesive (31000)

Stainless Steel (32500)

You can also use a Reverse Image Wheel with the DYMO M1011 labelmaker. This wheel allows you to print mirror script labels that meet special requirements in the industry. Mirror labels are used on moulds or casts for metal or rubber injection, silicon casting, fiber glass applications, and so on.

Visit www.dymo.com for information on obtaining tapes and accessories for your labelmaker.

Punching Holes in Non-Adhesive Labels

You can choose to punch one or two holes in non-adhesive labels so that the labels can be attached using screws, nails, rivets, and metal or plastic wires or ties. You can also punch a cable tie slot in one or both ends of the label.

To punch a hole

1.Insert one end of the cut label into the hole punch slot (L).

2.Lift the cutting handle (I) to the vertical position to punch a hole.

To punch a cable tie slot

1.Insert one end of the cut label into the cable tie slot (K) with the letters facing down. The letters must face down to ensure the bridge of the slot is on the same side of the label as the characters.

Make sure to allow enough room for the tie-buckle before and/or after the letters. A cable tie slot positioned on top of the characters or a punched hole may cause the tape to jam.

2. Lift the cutting handle (I) to the vertical position to punch the slot.

Hints for Trouble Free Operation

Keep the following in mind when using the labelmaker:

Letters appear where you want spaces - You are probably squeezing the embossing handle too hard.

Letters overlap - The tape is slipping. This can happen when dirt or grease gets on the rollers. Clean the rollers by using a soft cloth and alcohol, while turning the tape advance knob back and forth several times.

Avoid turning the embossing wheel at the same time you are squeezing the embossing handle. This can damage the character blades.
