Printer Compatibility Update

by Paul Kazlauskas

Did you know the new DYMO 550 Series printers exclusively support only DYMO brand badges? Unfortunately, this means that any other brand, including THRESHOLD badges, will not be compatible with these printers.


THRESHOLD Expiring Badges

For those currently using DYMO printers, switching to the new 550 Series will pose a problem as you won’t be able to use your existing stock or upgrade to any of our expiring badges.

As an alternative, I'd like to suggest several high-quality and cost-effective printers that offer you the flexibility to use visitor badges of your choice.

Some popular options include:

  • Zebra Compact Direct Thermal Label printer – such as the ZD410
  • Seiko SLP Direct Thermal printer
  • Brother Direct Thermal Label printer such as QL720NW or any QL Series      




These alternatives ensure that you can choose the brand of visitor badges that best suits your needs without any compatibility restrictions.

If you need of recommendations for a compatible printer, please call 800-243-1969. We're here to assist and ensure a seamless transition for your badge printing requirements.
