Dymo LetraTAGs are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the print starts to fade it's time to put new batteries in. When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape.
Hope it helps!
I made a couple of labels and was pleased - the dozens of symbols and various fonts that the LetraTag offers are fun. Unfortunately, after only a few uses, the labels came out faded. I switched the label cartridge, but the next label came out almost completely blank. I cleaned the inside with the little brush, changed the batteries, and tried a power adapter - all of the suggestions on the Dymo website. None of these worked. I e-mailed Dymo's customer support; they were relatively nice and sent me a new one. I had to send a couple more e-mails, however, to find out if they wanted the broken one back (they didn't).
I was excited to get my new labelmaker, but this time the first label came out faded. Then the second. And the third had barely a fleck of ink. Now I have two brand-new labelmakers that won't make labels.
Either I have a crazy electrical force field like Sean Patrick Flanery in Powder or this product stinks. I'm betting on the latter, and would not recommend this labelmaker to anyone.
1) The product design and usability is horrendous.
- The keypad is not QWERTY but (inexplicably) in alphabetical order, which makes typing very difficult (and SLOW).
- There is no shift/caps key. To change between caps and lower case you must enter capitals "mode", type, then switch back.
- There are no number keys - again, you must switch to numbers "mode"
- The process to change the printing size and styles is cumbersome.
- You are limited to saving 9 text snippets (pre-defined labels, etc.) and the method of saving/retrieving is just bizarre. It is incredibly easy to overwrite a saved snippet.
2. The device is of poor quality.
Despite cursing under my breath and wishing I'd never bought this model every time I pulled it out, I used it infrequently for about six months. (To give you an idea of my usage: I never used a complete label cartridge.)
On day I printed a label and pressed the lever on the side to cut it, and the lever just broke off. Thus, there is no way to cut labels (since the labels are slightly inset when printing is complete, using scissors is not an option) and the device is now useless.
I urge you not to buy this product.
It worked properly for a day but then started printing extremely long labels, perhaps a foot long, with one or two light gray letters in the middle. It would also repeatedly refuse to work saying the tape was jammed, even after I made sure it ran smoothly.
The process to contact DYMO support is cumbersome requiring registering your email address and opening an account with their website. They were not able to provide any assistance to enable me to fix the problem myself. The online suggestions are poor and bore no relation to my difficulty with the printer.
I was told the thermal head draws heavily on batteries when it prints and unless the batteries are nearly brand new, printing can be negatively affected. I think it should be made clear to purchasers that you will have very high battery usage with this product as you will frequently have to install fresh batteries. You should consider buying the optional AC adapter to economize. Another disadvantage I noted from the users manual is that the labels fade very quickly unless they are kept out of the sun in a cool place. This too should be brought to people's attention.
Customer service were polite via email and they suggested an RMA but this became problematic because of my location, and really, for a product costing below $20, the trouble is too great. Easier to throw it out I decided.
So my recommendation is, buy a competitive product instead. I have bought the Brother portable and rechargeable labeler to replace it and will review that later. It has received numerous positive reviews on Amazon so lets hope it does a better job than the Dymo.
On the whole, a difficult experience with a mediocre (at best) product with very expensive consumables
