Funky - I do follow the steps in your Word doc but the labels won't print properly. I had to use DreamStonz' snapshot method and do one label at a time. Then the labels come out perfect. Right now printing one label at a time isn't an issue because I'm just getting started, but I'll definitely need to figure something out for the future.

Will try to figure out which screenshots would be most helpful to show the sequence. Thanks for sticking with this thread. B-)

I think just figured out what the problem was. Duh!

I was using books to practice with and since there's only one of each book I was trying to print the label for each book from one PDF. Your screenshot shows two products but you were printing multiple labels for only one product at a time. That means I'll still have to print each label one at a time for each individual product though, correct?

I thought we could create an FBA shipment of X number of products, then print the labels for the entire FBA shipment all from the same PDF.

Ah, ha.

To print all the labels at once, you'd have to go back to using Avery 5160 3-up labels, and a laser printer.

Doing them one at a time goes really fast, once you get into a rhythm. Tab, tab, tab, download.

With Firefox, my download button is right next to the home page (Amazon Seller Central). So, if I click the wrong button, I have to go back and erase the quantity of labels to print, and pick up where I left off. Of course, it only happens with bigger shipments.

Still, I would never go back.

Try the AMZ Labels application, it's free for 30-days; and well worth $4.95 a month.

I just spent over $200 on the Dymo (with labels) so I'm not buying another printer anytime soon. I agree that doing them one at a time won't be so bad, especially since I'm just getting started and won't have a huge inventory or large number of sales.

I looked at the amz label site but it's probably overkill for me at this point. It's bookmarked for the future so if all goes well maybe I'll end up signing up.

Thanks again for all your help.

I treated myself to my Dymo 4XL with income from the Holiday Season, about 4-years ago. It was $495.00 at the time from Endicia.

It's proved to be worth twice the price.

Try printing your customer packing slips, theater and ball park tickets. It prints just about anything I send to it. (See screenshots.)

Enjoy...

Anybody who finds this beneficial should be "sifting" through Amazon's FBA Seller University.

We don't need it.

Besides, following advice of anyone on an offsite link, generally doesn't end well.

Does the AZ option you recommend work with item labels, such as the labels that go on books I'm preparing to sell?

Their explanation shows it working on 4x6 labels for shipping filled boxes. It does not give an example of using this for the 30334 labels.

Like many others here. I've tried the method you outlined in your .doc file of quite a few months back. It did nor work for me. I am using a Windows machine and a LW 400 Turbo.

Thanks for the efforts to fix this. It would seem Amazon would make this easier to accomplish.

AZ Labels allows us to print FBA Shipping and Box Labels on our thermal printers. There's really other way to it professionally.

I'm using Windows 7, and a Dymo 4XL. You should be able to print them by choosing the 44-up label option, and the Dymo Advanced Options to select Paper Output, Paper Size: 30334

Let me know how it goes?

You're joking, right?

I guess if you wanted to follow 1,000 steps to get a simple label printed, someone that doesn't know any better might use it.

You could have saved the time had you read the entire thread.

Enter 1 for the # of labels to print at the Label Products step in the Workflow.

Then, enter the number labels you want to print at the Copies: prompt in the Dymo dialog box.

So, you want to print 1 label x number of times.
