Before you begin
Make sure you have the latest driver for your Dymo (or other) printer.
Dymo Direct Printer Setup
*Dymo Direct Printing is the recommended print method for ScanPower. If you wish to manually configure your printers the instructions below walk you through the steps for PC and Mac. If you have already completed the Dymo Direct steps you DO NOT need to do the steps below.
Printer Setup – PC
We recommend using the Dymo 450 label printer. They can be purchased for under $100 and are very easy to set up and use. They use the standard Dymo address label for printing FBA labels. There are generic labels available when you need to buy more.
1. Open Firefox and go to your page setup:
2. Set your orientation to LANDSCAPE, and your scaling to 80%:
3. Set your margins to “0” and make sure that all headers/footers are BLANK.
4. In List, right click on the item(s) and select the option to print labels:
5. Go into your print properties:
6. Again, be sure that the orientation is set to landscape, then click on the “advanced” button:
7. Be sure that you have the paper size set to “30252 Address” and click OK:

7. Log-in to ScanPower, select List and choose the shipment for which you want to print a label.
8. Choose an item, right-click the item and select “Print Labels”. (To right-click on a Mac click ctrl and your mouse at the same time.)
9. Select your DYMO for “Printer”, enter the number of labels you want to print for that item for “Copies” and set all “Headers” and “Footers” to “–blank–“. Click “Print”.
Printer Setup for Zebra printers
We strongly recommend using a Dymo 450 for printing your FBA labels. They can also be printed using a Zebra label printer. Many sellers already have a Zebra so all you would need is to buy 3″x1″ labels. We use a Zebra and we have taken screen shots of our printer settings to help with your setup. If you are unable to get your Zebra to print the labels after following this guide, you should call Zebra support for help with your printer settings.
Setting up your Zebra UPS printer to print labels on PC (Firefox browser):
This is what you want to see. A Print Preview (File -> Print Preview) that shows all on one label.
If showing two labels, Scale to 90% or 80%.
In Page Setup (File -> Page Setup), You can switch between Portrait and Landscape. You may have to swap these if your master printer settings are set one way or the other.
All your margins should be 0.0. All your Headers & Footers should be –blank–.
When you choose Print (File -> Print), you can view your printer’s Properties. Paper size needs to edited. Here you can also switch Portrait and Landscape. If they are swapped here, you may need to swap in your Format & Options.
Below are your master Printer Settings. These are accesses from Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes ->
RIght Click on your printer -> Select Printing Preferences…
