Helping You with Your Amazon FBA Business

How to Print FBA Labels to Your Dymo From Seller Central

I want to tell you about a new service that will print your Amazon FBA barcode (FNSKU) and shipping labels directly to your thermal printer from Seller Central.  It’s called AZLabels and I had the opportunity to be a beta-tester.

After testing it, I give the service a “thumbs up” and recommend it especially if you’re using Scan and Label.

It’ll speed up your workflow because you’ll no longer need to take the extra step of pulling up each inventory item that’s included in your shipment.  Another nice feature is that it prints all of your labels at one time rather than individually.

How to Get Started

You start by going to the AZLabels page and download their Chrome extension. This extension works both on PC and MAC systems.  Once you download it, you’ll be instructed to create your account.  Once your account is setup, the Chrome extension will be activated.  I found this to be a simple process and didn’t have any problems with it.

How to Print Amazon Barcode Labels

You list your inventory and create your shipping plan as normal.

Then when you come to the part for you to print your Amazon barcode labels , you’ll see a “Print Thermal Labels” button.  You simply press this to print to your DYMO 450 Turbo or other thermal printer.

When I tested the button, it created a PDF file of the labels.  When I went to print them, the labels didn’t look quite right.  That was quickly fixed by choosing the correct label size and the margins.  Then my labels were ready to print:

I use the 30334-R labels. Find links on the Resources Page.

What’s nice is that it prints ALL of your labels.  Again, this is much easier than using Scan and Label.

How to Print Amazon Shipping Labels

After your Amazon barcode labels are printed, you continue to process your shipment as normal until you’re ready to print your shipping labels.  At this point, you’ll see the “Print Thermal Labels” button on your screen:

I admit that I didn’t test this feature because I use my laser printer for the shipping labels.  But I do know that some of you do use a thermal printer for your shipping labels.  If you get a chance, sign up for the free account and give it a test!  Be sure to report back on how it worked for you.

This is on my wish list for shipping labels:

DYMO LabelWriter 4XL Thermal Label Printer
List Price: $160.00
Price: $152.27
You Save: $7.73
Price Disclaimer

Free Account and Discounted Pricing

Keith the owner is generous enough to offer a FREE account to print up to 100 FNSKU labels and 10 shipping labels per month.  If you print more labels, then you can upgrade to a low-cost standard or unlimited plan.

By using my referral link, you will receive a discounted price on the paid plans.  The public price is higher.

Even if you don’t print that many labels or if you use another service such as InventoryLab for your DYMO printing, I still recommend that you open a free account.  Why?  Well, even though I use Pacific Prep Services for most of my shipments, I still ship out my retail arbitrage shoes and random items.  The AZLabels service made life easier because my DYMO 450 is currently not printing from InventoryLab.  I haven’t had a chance yet to figure it out.

Your dashboard keeps track of how many labels you printed.

      Hi Keith,

      I often receive private messages regarding the tools/services that I use. If anyone has any questions about AZLabels that I can’t answer, I’ll let you know!

    I’m wasting a lot of labels trying to get them to print correctly. I have the correct label selected but the barcode and text on the label when printed is a lot smaller than it should be. What settings are you using to print your labels? I don’t have an option to set margins, only Scale and Fit to Page. I really want to get this to work properly because printing all the labels at once rather than scanning each item and printing an individual label is a HUGE time saver. I have the Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo, by the way.

      Ok. so I think I got it figured out. Here is how I set it up (for others who might be having issues so you don’t waste 50-60 labels like I did):

      1) Download the PDF to your computer (I was NOT able to print properly from the web-based PDF).

      2) After choosing to print from the PDF menu, set your printer to your thermal printer (whatever you might be using), then click the “Properties” button. Click the “Paper/Quality” tab, and under Quality Settings, choose “Normal” (this prints the fastest and the quality difference between Normal and Best is barely noticeable, if at all). Next, click the “Advanced” button, and in the “Paper Size” drop down menu choose your label size (like Diana, I use the 30334 2-1/4 x 1-1/4 in labels). After this you can click OK twice to take you back the main Print window.

      3) In the main Print window, under “Page Size & Handling” choose “Actual size”, and then under “Orientation” choose “Auto portrait/landscape”.

      You should now be ready to print. For reference I’m using Windows 10 and a Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo.

        Hey Jason,
        I’m glad that you have the DYMO settings figured out. I’ve said it a hundred times, Amazon sure doesn’t make it easy!!

        Anyway, thank you for giving the instructions on what worked for you. I’m sure many others will benefit from it! 🙂

        I had that problem too. When I print direct from AZ, not only is the print size smaller but the barcode is unscannable. It looks like the bars at the beginning of the barcode are missing and the scanner can’t read it. Downloading to PDF also worked for me. Weird thing is, it’s in a completely different font. I did not have to do any of the settings you indicated in step #2 and #3. I used the settings recommended by Diana and they worked perfectly. Just tweaked it slightly to get more of the title to print on one line. I only changed the printer settings on the AZ application page; nothing else. I did not have to select label size either (and I use a different label size than Diana).
