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 widths of 6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm, 19 mm, or 24 mm. These tape cassettes are available in a wide range of materials.

Visit www.dymo.com for information on obtaining labels and accessories for your label maker.
