4How I print from USPS website
By VGReviews
We ship exclusively by USPS Priority Flat Rate and I purchased the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL as I had read it has the ability to print directly from the USPS website. Not so! I was unable to configure the printer settings, or USPS website settings, to get the correct orientation for printing. Very Frustrating!

I called DYMO Tech Support and was told they do not offer support of their product when used with USPS. They only offer support when you use their DYMOstamps site or another site that charges a monthly fee.

I was close to sending it back, but decided to look around for a fix. After more time than I care to admit looking for an answer, I pasted together the fix below that is not ideal but works for me as I am not shipping everyday. I'm using my PC for printing.

How To Print From USPS Website to DYMO LabelWriter 4XL:

1. From the USPS Website choose PDF instead of Print Label.
2. Open or Save PDF (I open the PDF to save steps, but you can Save if you want to print later). Your file will likely open with Adobe Reader.
3. Choose View --> Rotate View --> Clockwise (or counterclockwise, or 90 degrees - just be sure the image is in Portrait view)
4. Choose Edit --> Take a Snapshot
5. Select/Highlight the label's 4x6ish area.
6. Right click in the highlighted area and select Print.
7. Choose the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL from your printer options and print. Voila, a perfect print every time!

Also under your Printer --> Properties --> Advanced, be sure to set the Paper Size to 4in x 6in (1744907).

This takes about a half dozen clicks to get the job done, but it beats the old paper, print, scissor and tape method I was using for so long.

I hope this saves someone time and frustration. Feel free to let me know if you have a better fix!

The 4XL was easy to install and connect, and it does print quickly and quietly.

5Great Printer For Creating 4x6 Ebay Shipping Labels with a Mac
By Silly Rabbit
I sell a lot of items on Ebay and I recently purchased this printer for the sole purpose of creating 4x6 inch Ebay Shipping Labels on a Mac. I was worried about whether I could get it to work because I've read about the various problems other people have been having getting it configured and the fact that Label Printers are not officially supported on the Mac. I'm pretty good at figuring things out so I took a chance and bought it. Long story short, I had to come up with my own solution in the end, but I ultimately got it to work quite easily. And I am now happily printing out perfect 4x6 inch Shipping Labels on a Mac. The printer is working flawlessly and the labels I'm printing are perfect. Therefore, this is a printer I highly recommend even if you're using a Mac. Below are the step-by-step instructions on how to got it to work:

*********

How To Print Perfect 4x6 Shipping Labels from Ebay usng the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL Printer and a Mac...

Most users selling items on Ebay already have their computer set up to print labels to their laser printer and to other kinds of printers, and for PC users, that also includes to Label Printers as well, such as the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer. Unfortunately for Mac users, Label Printers are not officially supported. The good news is, there is an easy way for Mac users to make use of the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer as well, and can easily print out perfect 4 inch by 6 inch shipping labels every single time. The following explains how...

For Mac users, when printing a label via Ebay, on the page that says "Purchase and Print USPS Postage", once you've clicked the button that says "Purchase Postage" to buy your label, a secondary page should open allowing you to print your label. It is on that secondary page that we will choose certain options which will allow us to print directly to the DYMO Laserwriter 4XL printer with a Mac, and we can get perfect results every time. The following are my step-by-step instructions...

Step 1 - After clicking on the "Purchase Postage" button and arriving on the secondary page, click the button above the label window that says "Print Label". This will open up a Print Dialog Box to allow you to select your printing options. Note, we will NOT be printing from this particular Print Dialog Box at this time because we first have to "crop" the label. To accomplish this, ignore all settings and options in the current Print Dialog Box. Instead, at the bottom of the Print Dialog Box window, click the button that says "Preview". This will open the entire label including your receipt in a separate window in Apple's Preview program. We will now use the "Crop" tool in Apple's Preview program to "crop" the label from the page...

Step 2 - Once the label is open in Apple's Preview program, you may notice that it is now oriented sideways. Don't worry about the orientation. It will still print correctly once we're done. In Apple's Preview program, choose the rectangular selection tool and select the area around the label where you want it to be cropped (I generally select an area about a 1/4 inch around the entire label). Once the area has been selected, choose "Crop" from the Tool menu (this crops out the receipt and all other unnecessary portions of the page). All that is left is your label, perfectly cropped, and ready for printing. Note, before you proceed further, make sure your DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer is connected to your computer and turned on, and that all software has been installed...

Step 3 - From the File menu (still in Apple's Preview program) choose the "Print" command. This opens up the Print Dialog box again. We will now choose certain printing options in this dialog box...

a. In the Print Dialog box, from the pull-down menu that says "Printer", choose the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL as your printer. (Note, your DYMO LabelWriter 4XL must be connected and turned on at this time in order for it to show up under this menu)...

b. VERY IMPORTANT - Under the pull-down menu for "Paper Size", scan down through the list of sizes and choose the preset that says: "1744907 4 in x 6 in". This option will match your cropped label to the 4 inch x 6 inch labels in the 4XL printer (otherwise, it will print at the wrong size).

c. ALSO IMPORTANT - Under the Scaling Options, choose the "Scale to Fit" option and also the "Print Entire Image" option (this scales your label image down to fit within the 4 in x 6 in label space without any portion of it being cropped off).

d. Under the pull-down menu that says "Preview", pull down the menu and choose "DYMO Options". For the "Print Quality" setting, change the menu from "Text Only" to "Barcode and Graphics". For the "Print Density" setting, change the menu from "Low" to "High" (this tells the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL to print the label with maximum density and with maximum contrast).

e. All options have now been set. We are now ready to print. Click the "Print" button at the bottom of the window. Your DYMO 4XL printer should begin printing, and should print out a perfect 4x6 shipping label every single time...

By following the above, I've been happily printing out perfect 4x6 shipping labels from Ebay using a DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer and a Mac. And it's been working without a hitch...

**********

IMPORTANT UPDATE: For those of you who are using the Mac program Garage Sale when selling items on Ebay, an excellent shipping option to complement Garage Sale is the shipping program called "Endicia" (it costs about $16 per month). Not only does Endicia provide direct USPS Parcel Select support (which Ebay won't offer until March), but I've also learned that Endicia is fully integrated into Garage Sale. Meaning, once you have both Garage Sale and Endicia installed on your computer, and you then make an Ebay sale, in the Inspector Palette of Garage Sale there is an option you can choose which allows you to "ship the item with Endicia". By choosing that option from within Garage Sale, Garage Sale will then automatically find and launch your Endicia application, and the best part of all is that (...GET THIS!!!...) when Endicia opens, it will already be pre-populated with all your Ebay sale data! That's right, you won't have to copy and paste anything because all your Ebay details for the transaction will already be imported into Endicia and you'll be ready to print your label. All you have to do is just verify everything you see, make any changes needed, and then Print your shipping label. It's so easy. And did I mention that the Endicia for Mac program also offers direct support for the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer. That's right. Ebay doesn't offer any Label Printer support for Mac users, Paypal doesn't offer it, Stamps.com doesn't offer it, but Endicia DOES! There is a preference option in the Endicia for Mac program where Mac users can now print directly to the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer without any fuss or problems at all. I've been printing 4x6 labels using Endicia and the 4XL and it's been working like a charm. The 4x6 shipping labels are coming out perfect (even better than printing them via Ebay as outlined above). Endicia and Garage Sale are like a match made in heaven. I've found very few things otherwise to complain about. If you want a great Ebay shipping option solution that truly works on a Mac and is designed for a Mac, then Garage Sale and Endicia and the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer is your ticket.

4First Impressions (1/10/17) So far so good! Previously
By Justin M.
First Impressions (1/10/17)

So far so good!

Previously, I was using a brother printer to print ebay labels using letter size 2 up label dog labels. it worked fine but I'd always have to remember to place the label in the printer as I used it for regular printing as well. When a great "deal of the day" deal came along, on this Dymo 4xl printer, I couldn't pass it up.

So far, I'm loving it. Never have to think if my printer is ready for label printing. I have this connected to one of the USB ports on my Netgear router, so I can access it from anywhere on the network.

As others have mentioned, if you select one of the 4x6 zebra printers in ebay/paypal, you should have no problem. Although, I did run into a slight snag with Google Chrome. Since Google Chrome uses it's own PDF plugin, the top of the ebay labels would get cut off a few millimeters. It doesn't seem anything of major importance is cut off, but me being a stickler, it was rather annoying. I did find a solution though. You just have to create a custom page size that's slightly less than 4x6. Of course, the Dymo driver doesn't allow a custom paper size, so you'll have to force it in Windows (not sure if it's possible on the MAC)

In Windows, go to Devices and Printers-> Highlight the Dymo Printer->Then look for the "Print Server Properties". It should be near the top of the window. (see attached photo) Once there, check the "create new form", give it a name, and put in the custom dimensions. Lets say 3.95" W x 5.9" H which is still proportionate to 4x6. Choose to save this custom size and then you can go to the printer properties of the Dymo and set this new size as a default. In the end, no more cut off when printing through Google Chrome.
