About Your New Printer

With your new DYMO RhinoPRO3000 label printer, you can create a wide variety of highquality, self-adhesive labels. You can choose to print your labels in many different sizes and styles. The printer uses DYMO RhinoPRO Industrial label cassettes in widths of 3/8” (9 mm), or 1/2” (12 mm). RhinoPRO label cassettes are also available in a wide range of materials.

Visit www.dymo.com/industrial for information on obtaining tapes and accessories for your printer.
