I don't get why they aren't wireless either... So dumb.
Lance Masta (11 days ago)
you should buy labels from Thermallabelsxtra.com they are the best!
Isa Ansharullah (23 days ago)
One weakness for direct thermal printing is that it is very weak with cellophane tapes. If you put cellotape directly on top of printing surface, the printing result will fade very quickly within hours.

Anyone having an issue with the label being off center when printing from eBay? I have everything setup properly but my labels are moved to the left a little and it's driving my minor case of OCD crazy

I have a wireless inkjet printer that i use for regular printing and label printing. Want to get the rollo, but have a question. The print label preferences is that something you do only once or everytime? Does making the label printer default affect the default printer in other programs? Meaning if i were to print something off MS word, will it end up printing from the rollo? Mac user also

order directly from Rollos website it's cheaper there and you can get the label holder and a stack of 500 labels, I just ordered mine with the holder and a stack of 500 labels for $184 with promo code "saveme10"!

My Rollo is a life saver, only negative is they do not like dusty environments. Mine lives in the garage and has to be cleaned once a week, very easy 2 minute clean up. So much better machine then any Dymo we have had.

A cheap investment is exactly what it is if you're saving money down the line, that's what investment means, no? noun 1. the action or process of investing money for profit or material result.
Jennifer Allen (7 months ago)
Hi, I ordered all the supplies (using your affiliate link) to get started with my ebay business. I got the lights, paper background, Rollo printer, labels, polybags. Everything you suggest. I received all my equipment and starting to use it and I don't understand how you use the labels that you recommend with the Rollo printer. The Rollo printer takes 4x6? and the labels you recommend are 8x11 sheets. Am I missing something?

The fact that my current printer requires me to buy new ink every time one of the color inks gets low (it uses a tiny bit of color even when printing black/white --such a racket!!) makes it worth it early on to invest in a printer like this. I'm currently low on 3 colors (black is almost full) but my printer will not print if ANY of the ink colors is out, even if I only want to print black and white. I went to see how much the full pack of all 6 colors would be since I'll need them all soon anyways and it was $100. I'd rather spend my money on the thermal printer! I rarely print anything else on this printer and it just eats through ink...it is higher end Epson color printer but was a waste of money.

I just got a Rollo for my eBay store. I am glad I read the fedex pdf Hack in this thread, I am surprised you paid so much for those 4000 labels though! I got a box of 8000 shipping labels off Amazon for about $25
Travis Burke (10 months ago)
I bought the wrong size labels! No wonder mine were so cheap, you got the better deal for sure haha
RALLI ROOTS (10 months ago)
Travis Burke cool 😊 careful with the labels you buy. They don’t always work.

Hey Ryan, Great review buddy. Quick question ,can you print directly from your iPhone or do you have to print from your computer?

Can get free Thermal labels from UPS
Alannah LeeAnne (1 year ago)
Great Review, first and foremost, however, I do not agree with the statement that smaller business owners shouldn't invest in the Rollo. I disagree because I have been in an instance where I was shipped something and the ink was smudged and the package was a mess, causing me not to buy from them again because I could tell by the way the package looked internally as well as externally, they did not care what happened with my package, so to all the smaller business owners, try your best to make the outside of a package as brilliant as what's on the inside.

JJ Coolidge (1 year ago)
I'm having an absolutely horrible time with the Rollo thermal printer. Bought one four months ago and the printouts were blurry. I'm tech literate and tried different settings - there's not much to set up there anyway - but nothing doing. I set up a ticket with their service, and they did call me, but nothing doing. They even operated the printer themselves from my computer and updated the firmware remotely. They sent me a second printer, but it turned out to have an altogether different problem. After more time spent with their tech service, they ascertained this one too was faulty and sent me a third one. Got it today and, lo and behold, it only prints the upper part of my labels and then jams or feeds to the middle of the next label. All settings are correct on my computers. This thing won't even print its self-test properly. Of course they won't refund me. They tried to make me believe it's a system error on my end, and then that it might be an issue with the power at our shop - really? - but I tried it on five different PCs, with Windows 7, 8 and 10, and through several different outlets, including a Furman power conditioner, and guess what: none of them work. At some point they thought it was the labels themselves - the ones they had provided us! - that were the problem, so we bought labels from Canada Post - 20 000 of them, their minimum order! Still didn't work. This piece of crap has cost a lot of time to three people in my business. Be aware, look elsewhere.
Robert M (1 year ago)
I agree same with mine and wasted around 100 labels printing with each density and speed all crap def going to return it support cant even get it to print clear yet the sample label printed without an issue
JJ Coolidge (1 year ago)
Worked briefly, then went wonky again. Got a refund from original seller, not from Rollo. My advice: Avoid.
Bizill (1 year ago)
So did the fourth unit get you sorted out?
JJ Coolidge (1 year ago)
Indeed, hasn't been pleasant. Yesterday they finally admitted there had gotten a bad batch, so they want to send us a fourth one when they get new batch. would have been nice knowing that before wasting all this time troubleshooting. I'll let you know how it turns out...
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
woahhhh....that is crazy, I will say you're the first person who we've heard of having issues like that. Ours has been working like an absolute charm since this vid. so 2 1/2 months of non-stop printing with no issues.

A used Zebra 500 or LP2844 from eBay will last you until the end of time.. Or a new one if you are made of money... There is an issue with FedEX, but the work around isn't that difficult..
HappyHandyLife (1 year ago)
I ended up not loving my thermal printer and I sold it on Ebay. I hated having to switch back and forth to that printer, forgetting, wasting labels...I went back to a regular laser printer eventually. So many people swear by them though, and I really wanted to love it.
Chris Magnelli (1 year ago)
Id never even heard of that brand. I just got a brother 1050 for the same price and i like it. I used to have the dymo and hated it, returned it after a week.
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
yeah the dymo isn't great. this one has been exceptional so far :)
Everday's Saturday (1 year ago)
You absolutely answered my question about it being wireless!! I prefer wireless because my desk is maxed out on space and my printer now sits on a table behind my desk. I'm so SICK of buying ink! Thanks for the review...I'm almost out of magenta ink and I decided to go with a new thermal instead of getting new ink lol
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
yeah no worries :) I believe Dyno is coming out with a wireless one next year so that'll be good. Thermal is soooo much better :)
M.A. Murphy & Co (1 year ago)
I have the Zebra ZP 450 and to print FedEx and this method should work almost all thermal printers having trouble with printing from FedEx. I have to download the label as a pdf and open in Acrobat and take a snapshot and then print. Works every time. After doing it a few times it becomes faster and easy. Also, you can get free labels from USPS, UPS, and FedEx if you have accounts with them. And one of these has the labels Ryan has on the video available. I can't remember which carrier. I didn't find this out until after I bought 3 rolls of 1000. Still only cost around 30-40 bucks. Thermal does not smudge or bleed. They can if they are put under packing tape because the adhesive and label causes a chemical reaction to the label and it will not be able to scan. Hope this helps you guys out. Great job on the video, Ryan!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
M.A. Murphy & Co awesome info. Thank you!

Hey guys... haven't seen you talk about this before but here's an issue that came up for me recently. I have my listings all posted with a 1 business day turnaround time which I've been religious about. I work super close to a post office so it's easy for me to package up items and mail them out before I go to work or during my lunch break. To save time I drop them in the blue boxes outside the post office or for those items that don't fit I bring them in and drop them on the counter. Here's the kicker... I noticed when I had three items sell on 10/31 and dropped them off the morning of 11/1 my local post office didn't scan them until 11/2 and 11/3. I noticed this when I was trying to figure out why my sales plummeted. Guys, I seriously had 0 sales for 9 days when before I was selling 2-3 items a day (I'm just starting out, 250 listings all fairly priced). I lowered prices AND dropped my store to 30% just to make sales to bring up my late sale percentage. I finally got some sales in the last 72 hours (thank god!). But I feel they dinged my ebay SEO (I'm sure there's a more technical term for this) for the "late" sales. Do you think this is possible? Also, I made a sale on Poshmark during the 9 days of hell. I dropped the package off INSIDE the post office into one of the bins after hours (5pm) on SATURDAY, Nov. 11 thinking this might be better then dropping in the outside boxes. Get this, on TUESDAY, Nov. 14 the package STILL wasn't scanned. So I went into the post office with my tracking information during my lunch break and was like WTF is going on? How is it that 2 business days later this item STILL isn't scanned? She spoke to me like an illiterate fool. I showed her on my phone with the tracking (or lack there of) and everything. She went to inform me that the post office is closed on Sundays (no shit) and that the item probably wasn't scanned but made its way to Cleveland (local hub) and I should be ensured it is on its way and should arrive in home that day or the following day. Well. At 6pm that evening that same post office finally scanned my item. Ryan and Ali, I lost my shit. I've obviously learned my lesson that the people who work at my local post office are incompetent mutants and that I need to stand in line to get my items scanned because they can't do their job. But I thought my "learning experience" might be a good topic for discussion in one of your videos to help others. Love your videos... thanks for listening to my rant! :)
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
OMG THAT'S NUTS! So first of all yes, ebay definitely gives favor to sellers who are hitting the "shipping goals" if the items aren't getting scanned in time your sales will suffer. One thing you might want to do is start scheduling a pickup the day before and then make sure the postal worker picking up your packages scans each one. USPS is pretty lame sometimes.
Mike C. (1 year ago)
Nice work Ryan. Very helpful. I'm glad you mentioned the "cons". Not being wireless is a major drawback.
Zeb Hatton (4 months ago)
Just plug the printer into a airport express and you can print wireless I did it with mine and it works flawlessly. You can pick up used ones for around $50
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
For sure! they need to fix that lo.
Kay Radebaugh (1 year ago)
Plug it into your router and assign it an IP address and you can print to it from any computer hooked into that router. I have printed 4x6 fed ex and ups labels for Amazon by changing the paper size in the print settings.

RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Jason Reyes awesome!! Glad you like it! We buy the poly bags 1000 at a time on eBay
Bearded Picker (1 year ago)
You might want to try saving the label to a pdf, then using adobe to print the label, using a snapshot to get only the label. It works with my Dymo 4xl, so should work with the Rollo.
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
yeah that seems to be the hack...fedex/ebay should really fix that issue though.

Vicky (1 year ago)
I'm using a cheap Brother laser B&W printer. It's super fast and fairly cheap. There's a hack to get it to keep printing thousands of pages beyond what the empty toner sensor thingie says. ;) It's so wasteful when printer companies do that! Toner is much cheaper than ink and lasts longer. When my Brother dies, I'll get a thermal. Maybe it'll be wireless by then. Great thorough review. Thanks!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
yeah definitely! laser is the way to go if you don't have thermal :) I think wireless is coming soon, crazy that it isn't an option already lol

5797029 (1 year ago)
I noticed you used a single label to test. What happens when printing bulk shipping labels? My printer prints labels sideways, two to a page and includes a bulk shipping manifest for USPS to scan. It looks like we could be wasting a lot of time printing individually then wasting more time scanning in with USPS if this unit dosen't support bulk. Mike
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
it supports bulk, you just have to change your label size to 4x6
Glenn (1 year ago)
Thanks for the review, I'm trying to figure out either to go with this or the Dymo 4XL. Is it easy to rip the label off on the Rollo? Since you have to stack the labels behind it, do you find they fall over or make a mess? I saw they sell a label storage addon for more money of course. Thanks!
Glenn (1 year ago)
Awesome, thanks for that info!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Glenn Burn haha yeah, the label storage is like another $20. I’ve used the dymo 4xl and I would say this printer is much much better. I know there is a dymo wireless one coming out next year though so that might be a good buy. The labels do rip off very easily yes. No issues with it so far
Ryan what are the chances that the information printed could fade during transit while being exposed to different types of light during shipping? do you feel thermal technology is consistent enough to use for a full-time Ebay store?
HeartlandRanchTV (5 months ago)
Thermal shipping labels have been the standard in every industry for decades now, so this isn't new or untested technology to be concerned about. I still have boxes from the 90's that have been exposed to all kinds of extreme conditions, and their original thermal labels are still perfectly legible, albeit slightly faded.
Beth Benjamin (1 year ago)
We run our business out of Phoenix,AZ. Would our extreme heat here cause any change to the labels?
Project720 (1 year ago)
I could be wrong but I believe most big companies use thermal labels. Amazon
G. Jasso (1 year ago)
Full Melt Fusion I have the same thought because the receipts from the post office can easily be scrached. If a package is thrown and the barcode is affected or the ship to address is affected there will be a problem.
Flip Flops All Day (1 year ago)
I have been using thermal labels for about 12 years now with multiple ebay stores and a website. They only fade if you put shipping tape over them. They are peel and stick labels so you don't need tape. Top 3 investment I ever made for my business was a label printer. Also you can adjust the darkness of the print if you think what printed looks too light. Ryan No holder for the roll of labels? Good luck with that. I see you responded and said there is a holder. I can see dust getting all over them. No good.
Timothy Miller (1 year ago)
I used to make millions of 4"×6" on direct and indirect thermal paper. For companies shipping labels. Does the printer have a heat adjustment if you want to use colored labels instead of white?
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Timothy Miller haha definitely!
Timothy Miller (1 year ago)
RALLI ROOTS thought maybe Alli would prefer purple labels instead of white. Lol
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Timothy Miller I’m not sure 🤔

Hi My Kiddos! Great review! I have the Dymo 4XL that I got on Amazon when it was on sale for $69 which I was totally stoked about! I also cannot print FedEx labels directly to my dymo so this is MY hack, try it out on your Rollo to see if it also works for you... So when I print a FedEx or UPS label I print as an Adobe PDF then when the PDF pops up I print it to my Dymo.... it works literally every time for me, so give that a try on your Rollo to see if it will also work for you. I know it is kind of a pain in the you know what with extra steps and all but it works well for me and my little Dymo 4XL so I am going to assume that this hack can be used with other thermal printers. Also, don't throw away the back of the shipping labels they are great helpers for us crafters when we mix epoxy and work with various mediums because once we are done with those things we don't have to feel bad about the clean up or damaging our painting pallets... just saying... Alli and I had a conversation about that so she knows, tell them Alli... Happy Day!

Cool looking unit! We use the Zebra 2844? Thermal printer. We bought it refurbished on eBay for $130...10 years ago lol it works amazing and it’s a work horse. We use label rolls that hold 250 at a time. It’s not as pretty as this one but it works amazing. Not sure if I like the labels just sitting on the desktop though. No hack as far as I know for FedEx. We have a laser printer for those labels. Awesome video as usual!

Very nice! Yes, we've heard great things about that printer as well! You can buy a label holder for the rolls and the stacks. http://amzn.to/2zVM2tj

I have the zebra which I love (Ebay deal @$65 with a roll of labels). You can save the labels as a pdf and then use foxit pdf to print the label. Not a very good solution if printing multiple labels but it does work. Ebay really needs to fix this issue with fedex labels
