How can I print product labels to my Dymo printer in inFlow Cloud?

Do you own a Dymo printer? Good news! You can print product labels directly from the inFlow Cloud Windows & web app! 

We’ve tested and recommend the Dymo LabelWriter 450 but you should be able to use this integration with most Dymo printers.

Please note: only inFlow Cloud Administrators can setup Dymo printing.

Getting started

Please make sure you install the Dymo Label software, not Dymo Connect! At the moment inFlow only works with files made from Dymo Label with the .label extension, and not .dymo.

You can download the latest version of Dymo Label 8.7.4 for Windows here, and Dymo Label 8.7.4 for Mac here.

Also, for inFlow to be able to print labels with a Dymo printer, you need to make label templates in the Dymo Label software. For more information on that, check out the Dymo Label templates article on how to create labels with your Dymo software, and use our inFlow codes.

Connecting Dymo to inFlow

From inFlow Cloud for Web:

  1. Log into https://app.inflowinventory.com/options/company
  2. Under Generate barcodes click on the Dymo Label printers button.
  3. The Step 1 window will give you a quick overview about the Dymo setup.

  4. Click Next to continue. 
  5. Download and install the Dymo software/drivers to your Windows based computer. Downloading from this link will ensure you have the most up-to-date version available from the Dymo website. If you’re a Mac user you can download the drivers for Dymo Label for Mac from here.
  6. Once downloaded and installed, click Next to continue.

  7. For Step 3 of the installation, you’ll need to upload a label template created in the Dymo Label software. These templates will have placeholder information that will tell inFlow which information to print onto the template. For complete details on how to create these Dymo label templates take a look at this article here or click on the Label templates tab in this article.

    You can also download a generic Dymo label template from here if you’d like to get started now.

  8. When you’re done, continue to the next step to add them to inFlow Cloud.


  9. Now that the label templates are made, click on the Manage templates button to upload one of your pre-made templates for inFlow.

  10. Click the add new button to upload the templates to inFlow.

  11. Once you’ve found the label file you want add to inFlow click the Upload button to save it to inFlow.
  12. To preview any of the templates that you’ve added you can click the eye icon.
  13. Click Save & Close when you’re done uploading your labels.

You’ve completed the setup!

Labels can be printed from the product record, current stock, purchase order, and work order screens. See below for how you can print from each of these areas.

On all label printing screens you can choose how many copies of the label you want to print, choose the template from the Layout template drop-down menu, and you can select which Dymo printer you want to print your labels too. You can also add, or remove labels in inFlow by clicking on any of the Label  buttons then clicking on Manage Labels.

Label templates

In order to start printing labels in inFlow Cloud you’ll need to start creating labels in your Dymo software. For a complete guide on making labels in Dymo’s software take a look at this Dymo Label software user guide file.

Before you start

Please make sure you install the Dymo Label software, not Dymo Connect! At the moment inFlow only works with files made from Dymo Label with the .label extension, and not .dymo.

Once you know how to make labels you’ll need to add reference codes to them. These reference codes are placeholders for the information you have in inFlow.

For example if you want the product name/code from inFlow to print on a label, you will need to create a label with the inFlow reference name, “Item Name.” 

Creating labels in Dymo Label

Adding reference codes to your labels

  1. Open one of your labels in the Dymo label software.
  2. Right-click on the part of the label you want to add a inFlow reference to.
  3. Select Properties.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Reference name field type in the inFlow code you want on the label.
  6. Click OK when done.

Please see below for a complete list of inFlow codes you can add to your labels.
