Does the Dymo label printer use the standard ACT! label templates for printing?

If they do use the standard label templates then it would be possible to print labels from the company addresses. However it requires specially modified versions of the ACT! labels. I sell a package of label and envelope templates that include versions that print from the company table addresses.

ACT letters and label templates are designed to work from the Contact table view therefore if Dymo use this link they can also only print from the contact screen.
You can create Contacts from the Company Table view, In the company View go to Companies on the top line, you will then see a drop down view with Create Contact from Company. Also under this drop down list is View Linked Fields which show what Contact fields will be populated by the Company record.
This may be the easiest and most cost effective way forward if you do not want to purchase add-ons.

if your are just geting started, I don't know that would use the company view. ACT is contact centric. Companies are helpful if you are selling accross large organizations and you would link contacts to them to view the activitiy under the companies.
Depending on your use, I would even sugest exporting out of the company level and import back in at the contact level. It is from this level that mail merges, email, reports and your labels would come from.
There are certainly reasons to use companies, but from the sounds of what you are currently doing, I would probably not sugest using them.
