Printer Set Up
Our DYMO printer is our most common option as it allows for churches to use a single computer, multiple computers, or a combination of computers and tablets.
DYMO Printer Setup
- Install DYMO Label Software version 8.7.3 (Windows), 8.7.2 (Mac) or higher 1
(NOTE: Breeze is not compatible with Dymo's "Connect for Desktop" software offered on their website, use the link below for the Labelwriter Software)
Click here for Windows Dymo Labelwriter Software

- Connect the printer. Ensure the printer prints successfully from the software.
- With the printer connected, open Breeze in a browser.
- Create a new event and select the checkbox relating to printing name tags (see Event Settings for more details).
- Open the check in page for the event and check a person in. The first time you load the check in page the browser will ask for permission to access the DYMO Label Framework. Grant it permission (you won't need to do this again).
- The printer should print the name tag automatically when you check the person in.
2 Computer running Windows XP will not be able to install a compatible version of DYMO Label Software.
If you would like to exclusively use iPads or iPhones to check in, we have an option for that! All you'll need is an AirPrint Printer and our Breeze Check In App.
Setting Up Your Brother Printer
Before you begin, you'll need to set up your Brother Printer. Follow the directions found on this article to learn how to do that: Setting up the Brother QL-820NWB Printer
How To Use The Check In App:
You can download the Breeze Check In App on iOS devices here.
The first time you use the Breeze Check In app you'll be prompted to enter your subdomain.
Your subdomain is part of the URL that you use to log in. For instance, if you log in at cornerstone.breezechms.com, your subdomain is cornerstone. If you don't know your subdomain, please contact your church.
After entering in your correct subdomain, you'll be prompted to enter in your login information.
This will now bring you to an Events calendar within your Breeze account! From here, you're able to view the current events or select a different date from the calendar. After selecting the desired date, you are presented with all the events for that day.
Select the event for which you'd like to track attendance and you'll be brought into the Check In screen. From here, you can select the Gear Icon to change the Mode, Add Headcount, Add Filters, etc.
From this page, you are now free to begin checking people in! After selecting to check someone in, a popup will appear asking which Brother Printer you would like to use. This popup will only appear once per check-in session.
From this popup you will select your desired, AirPrint-supported printer and your name tags will immediately begin printing!
If you would like to have multiple computers, or a computer and tablet/mobile devices set up to a DYMO printer, we have options for that with our Print Station Feature.
