I promptly returned it and called DYMO.

The P-Touch Editior has a fairly versatile drawing program, so you can design labels with custom graphics/fonts, and imported images, for many uses.

This label printer works great...exactly as described & a good deal in comparison to stores.

This printer absolutely WILL print labels for UPS, Post Office, and FedEx. I have printed dozens of shipping labels for those carriers, and they come out perfectly and with high resolution. I print from my fedex.com and ups.com accounts, and US Postal shipping labels from the Endicia application on my computer. Here's how:

1. I use the Brother 4" x 100ft Continuous Length Paper roll (DK2243), so the printer will automatically cut off the label exactly where the image ends (this also allows me to add additions like "FRAGILE" or "RMA #" below the carrier's label image).
2. When the label is ready to print (from FedEx, UPS or Endicia), instead of sending it to the printer I save it as a pdf file, and then open the pdf in Adobe Reader (or Acrobat) [note: rotate the image sideways and enlarge to full screen for best results].
3. In the printer's P-Touch Editor application, I select "Insert > Picture > Screen Capture...", which takes me back to Adobe Reader, and lets me select an area of the label image to capture.
4. The captured image then appears in the P-Touch app; I select print and it prints out the label.

Granted it takes an extra step, but it has the advantages of a) letting you save the label (pdf file) - in case of mis-print you can easily print another, and FOR MAC USERS: b) it lets you print labels from UPS and FedEx on a Mac - neither ups.com or fedex.com currently support direct printing on a Mac.

I also print all sorts of other labels, and the continuous roll lets me print the exact size I want, with no waste. The P-Touch Editior has a fairly versatile drawing program, so you can design labels with custom graphics/fonts, and imported images, for many uses.

This printer is built like a tank - very high-quality construction. Nothing at all like the light flimsy Dymo printers.

Highly recommended

This product appears to work well, and P-touch editor, which came free with the printer, is an easily accessible and understandable program used in conjunction with the printer. The issue I have, however, is that it requires proprietary labels made by Brother, and will not accept any other labels. This in particular was an issue for me, as the company I work for requires pre-printed labels (in color). Brother does not pre-print labels, and this is not a color label printer. For the price, it seems to be an excellent machine, and so long as you do not need pre-printed labels or, of course, color, and don't mind purchasing labels solely from Brother, than this printer (which is the cheapest label printer I could find that was capable of printing on 4" wide labels) will likely be all you need.

I couldn't get this printer to work with the USPS business software or stamps.com software BUT I was able to get it work with PayPal.

Install the printer driver from Brother.
Then change the Printing Preferences to: 4 x 6 large shipping label and orientation to Portrait.

From the PayPal 2nd screen.

Select Edit Printer settings.

Select Label Printer.

The select the Zebra LP2844-Z 4.0x6.0 printer.

You will need to install the Java runtime and use IE or Chrome because Firefox won't allow the Java runtime to run.

Then just print away. I highly recommend you consult the company of whatever service or software you are planning
on using before buying a label printer to make sure it will work with it.

It's a great device and we loved it but it's not compatible with stamps.com which is really frustrating. We sent an email to Brother support team and received the following reply:

"We apologize for this frustration. Unfortunately, the Brother thermal printer series is not supported for use within the Stamps.com software. We do understand the necessity of using this, and will take your comments into consideration. While we can not guarantee that your feedback will lead to a change in our overall policy/process, your feedback will be reviewed by management. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you".

So, we had to return it... Unfortunately.

Verified Purchase
I bought this product because the advertisements all say "Prints 4x6 Shipping Labels."

Once I received this printer, plugged it in, and called tech support, I was informed that while this printer does technically print shipping labels (only for Ebay or Paypal), it does NOT support or print labels through any of the main shipping companies: USPS, USP, or Fed Ex (unless you also subscribe to Endicia for $16 per month). I promptly returned it and called DYMO. Their 4xl printer is the only one I've found that prints typical shipping labels on a Mac computer through the major carriers. (They provide the Endicia software free of charge.) Be forewarned...

Follow Nomad77 on September 19, 2013 review and you will be fine. Forget about using it on a Mac.

For best result use a PC only for shipping so the settings don't change. Paypal multi-ship is the best to use but if you must use eBay or Amazon make sure you select the 4x6 zebra setting in ebay or the default label format on amazon.

Due to the low price I give it a 4 but if I had the money I would get a zebra. Don't forget to upgrade the firmware and buy generic labels at $9 a roll of 200 labels..

Don't leave more than 3 labels in the tray, the slightest friction on the label that is printing will cause letters not to print. Overall, for volume of 50 a month, it will do the job.
