Product Review: Dymo LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo – The “Mother Ship” of Professional Label Makers!
Written by Lisa Montanaro | October 30, 2010

I was recently asked by Get Buttoned Up to review The DYMO® LabelWriter® 450 Twin Turbo. And I am calling this one the “Mother Ship” of Professional Label Makers, as it is really cool, my friends.

If you are a busy professional working hard in your office, you will love the Dymo 450. Why? Because the Dymo LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo increases your labeling and mailing efficiency in the office. How? It holds not one, but two, label rolls, allowing you to get more labeling and mailing done in less time.

Yes, you read that right. Labeling AND mailing. You can print address labels and United States Postal Service approved DYMO Stamps® postage without swapping label rolls. Wow! You can also print large batches faster by loading two rolls of the same label – the DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo automatically switches to the second roll when the first runs out.

It is also fast! You can print up to 71 labels per minute. And it even pays for itself in a short time, as you can say goodbye to expensive ink and toner — it doesn’t need any! It uses direct thermal printing.

The Dymo 450 Twin Turbo packs a powerful productivity punch in a small attractive device that easily fits in a small space on your desktop. It comes with software to print labels directly from text in popular software programs, verifies US addresses and ZIP+4 codes, and much more.

As an added bonus, Buttoned Up is doing a contest! Anyone who emails them a tip for labeling or posts one on their Facebook page ( will be entered to win a $50 AMEX gift card.  Send in your tips to enter!

(Full disclaimer – I am receiving a $20 Target gift card from Dymo as a thank you for trying out their product line, which I will use to buy . . . What else? Organizing products to give away during workshops to my participants!)

So if you want the Mother Ship of label makers, with a postage printer thrown in, take a look at the Dymo 450 LabelWriter. You won’t be disappointed, trust me!

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
