Create Custom labels

To create a custom label, follow these steps:

1. Open the DYMO Label program

2. Choose the ‘Labels’ tab on the top left

3. Choose your preferred label size and layout. (It may be easiest to choose the empty layout)

4. Select the ‘Insert’ tab

5. Add all the desired label objects to the label (Text, barcode, etc)

6. On each object, right click and select ‘Properties’. On the ‘Advanced’ tab, the ‘Reference Name’ field MUST be set to one of the following:

For Regular Items:
ITEMID_BARCODE (choose ‘Code 128 Auto’ on ‘General’ tab in the ‘Symbology’ dropdown; Choose Barcode size small if label is small;)
SKU_BARCODE (choose ‘Code 128 Auto’ on ‘General’ tab in the ‘Symbology’ dropdown; Choose Barcode size small if label is small;)
CUSTOMER (will read ‘Inventory’ if it is a stock item)

For UPC Items:
