Compatible Direct Thermal Printers
Direct Thermal Visitor Passes are compatible with most direct thermal printers that can print on 2"- to 2.5”-wide labels, depending on the style. (See illustration below.) Examples include:
- DYMO LabelWriter series, like model #’s 450 and 450 Turbo
- Zebra desktop printers, like the ZD, GX, and LP series
(For Zebra printers with a maximum output width of 2", choose our 3" x 2" badges.)
- Brother QL series, like model #’s QL-1050, QL-1050N, QL-1060N, QL-500, QL-550, QL-570, QL-570VM, QL-580N, QL-650TD, QL-700, QL-710W, QL-720NW, QL-800, QL-810W, QL-820NWB (Brother printers require Brother-compatible labels)
If you are ordering for the first time, we recommend you request a free test roll to try on your printer.
About badge sizes and software settings:
Our 4"- long badges are the same size as DYMO Shipping Label #30256. If that is not available in your settings, change the setting to a Custom Badge Size of 4.0" x 2.3125".
Our 3"- long badges are very close to the same size as DYMO Name Badge #30324 or DYMO Diskette Label #30258. If neither of those is available in your settings, change the setting to a Custom Badge Size of 2.75" x 1.9".
Our Direct Thermal Visitor Passes will not work with European DYMO printers, which use proprietary labels. You can identify a European DYMO printer by the black stripes on the back of the unprinted labels.
Badge Dimensions: width vs. length
So, the badge above is 4" long x 2" wide.
