LabelManager ® 160 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, basic label maker, good bang for the buck As other reviews say, there is no very complex instructions. There is a 5 step process in a picture. But, that is how you use it. Turn on, type, choose some options, and print. Click the lever on the side and it cuts off. The adhesive does not seem sticky, but I have been sticking to pipes and electrical boxes with no problem. If it jams, then the cartridge you pop in does not have the tape fed below the two fingers. Prints are clear, and many options for font, symbols and clip art.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Simple to Use and Versatile This is a neat, simple label maker. Considering its price when on sale at various retailers, it is an excellent value. They have jammed a good amount of options into this label maker while keeping use fairly intuitive. The link to the instruction manual should have been noted in or on the box: . The manual shows how to get as much as you want out of the label maker. For those who have found the cost of new tapes expensive, don't buy them from the office supply chains. The biggest online retailer sells them for about 50% less. I love that the tapes are made in Belgium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete simple instructions on Dymo website Product looks & works great, but the basic setup pictures that come in the package are not enough. You must go to for simple, clear instructions you can view & print on the use of this product. It will quickly resolve all your questions on setup, usage, features & operation. The labelmaker will be easy to use after that. I'm sure the reviews would have been mostly 5 star, if full instructions had been included in the packaging. I like the easy to use, two-line printing feature. It saves space and label tape by printing a line above and another below within the same space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaces Dymo 1000........simple & easy This is a simple, easy and precise labeler. This is replacing a Dymo 1000 that was getting hard to find tape other the black on white. This is one of the easiest to use and since the QWERTY keyboard was added, it makes things simple. Hint: pull a little tape out of the cartridge prior to loading and you should not have any tape jamming issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! No batteries required! I'm already a huge fan of Dymo. I have Dymo label maker that's almost 10yrs old and still works perfectly! When I receive the Dymo Organizer express I didn't realize how convenient this label maker is. It requires no batteries, you can change the color of your tape as often as you want, the tape cost is much more affordable too, and all you need to do it turn the wheel and press. I was able to label all my craft supplies in half the amount of time when I used my battery operated one. Both label makers are a must have, it all depends on what you need them for. I work at a preschool so I'll definitely be using this to label the children's names on their writing books, journals, cubby, etc. I also love how compact and light weight this is :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unusable due to no instructions and label tape jam went through 2 tapes so far and you simply cannot use or print with this thing as the tapes dont self install and you keep getting a label jam error. I tried so many different tricks to get the tape to work without much luck (pulled a little before inserting, ...etc). At the minimum the tape should self install and you should provide a video showing exactly how to install them and get going.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sorry I bought this There are no instructions with it, only a picture guide to get started. The tape wouldn't feed. Put new batteries in it and it said the batteries need to be changed after trying to use it twice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value This label maker is easy to use.  Type what you want, change font size, etc. and print out.  Use to label thermostats in commercial buildings and so far no problems.

User Manuals & Product Sheets



I have a LabelManager 160 that is printing poorly. The print on the label is very light. How can I resolve this?


Replace the existing batteries with a new/fresh set of alkaline batteries, replace the existing tape cassette with a new tape cassette or use the special brush supplied with your label maker (located on the inside cover of the cassette compartment) or a cotton swab with a soft solvent (e.g. rubbing alcohol) to carefully clean the transporter roller and print head. Dust, dirt, or glue may accumulate on the rubber transport roller or print head inside the cassette compartment and adversely affect print quality.


Why am I unable to place a tax exempt order?


If you are trying to place a tax exempt order on, please contact customer support at 1-877-289-3966 to place the order. Please have your tax ID number and credit card number with you when you call to place the order.
