Using Print Stations for Mobile and Tablet Printing

Print Stations are computers that have a connected label printer with the required Dymo software. Once setup, you can easily turn on Print Stations for printing from a mobile device, iPad or tablet for Elvanto Check-in.
A Print Station works in the same way as a print queue. Once labels are sent to the Print Station, it will start printing labels on the connected label printer.

How to Use Multiple Mobile Devices to Print

Print stations allow you to have different stations for your rooms and use them at different locations at once. When printing, simply select the Print Station you want to print to before commencing check-in.

If you have multiple printers connected to the same print station (we recommend no more than 2-3 as this can slow down your printing), you'll need to open multiple print stations from that computer. The system will ask which printer you want to associate with each station if multiple DYMO printers are detected.


Using Both DYMO LabelWriter 450 and DYMO LabelWriter 550 Simultaneously:

If you're operating with multiple DYMO printers, you can easily manage and utilize both the LabelWriter 450 and LabelWriter 550 for your check-in process.

  • Computer A with LabelWriter 450: If this computer is set up with the LabelWriter 450 and the associated Label App software, simply choose the 'Label App' option from the check-in screen on this specific computer.

  • Computer B with LabelWriter 550: For a computer using the LabelWriter 550 with the Connect software, opt for the 'Connect' selection from the check-in interface on that machine.

In certain situations, the LabelWriter 450 might also be compatible with the Connect software. To ensure your printers are operating with the correct software, it's beneficial to consult the DYMO Printer Compatibility Chart. This will guide you to make sure you have the right software downloaded and selected for each printer.
