DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 Review

As a busy woman who is managing our home while home educating my three children and writing for Simply Stacie, it is imperative that I stay as organized as possible. While that isn’t always easy, using products like the DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 makes it much more manageable……and fun!

The DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 is so functional for both home and office use and I am thinking of new ways to use it every day. It is really helping me to save time and effort by being more organized. This product is very easy to use and I like that the handheld unit itself is sleekly designed so it does not take up a lot of space.

More importantly, the DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 is very easy to use. It features one-touch Smart Keys so that I can select the text size, bold, italic, vertical text etc. I can choose from 6 font sizes, 8 text styles and 4 boxes including underline so I can meet virtually any labeling need. It is very easy for me to type what I want on a computer-style keyboard and I really appreciate that I can see what the label is going to look like before printing it on the LCD display eliminating typos and wasted labels that need to be redone. There are even 228 symbols and clip art images that I can use for professional style labels!

My family thinks that I have gotten “label happy” since the DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 entered our home. Perhaps it was a bit much for me to label the dog’s water dish with his name but it is so much fun to use that I could not resist! On a serious note, this product has really come in handy for me to label the kid’s summer camp tote bags, home school file cabinets, art closet and so much more.

The DYMO® LabelManager™ 160 is battery operated but you can also choose to purchase the optional AC adaptor. I appreciate that it is affordably priced and you can also purchase additional label cartridges which I highly recommend in case you get “label happy” like I did!

The DYMO LabelManager160 handheld label maker is available at Staples Advantage, Costco, Grand & Toy, Basics, Lyreco & Novexco throughout Canada and retails for approximately $34.99. For more information about this and other DYMO products, please visit
