How to Keep a Brother P-Touch From Wasting Tape

When you use the Brother P-Touch label maker, the device prints your input onto a label of pre-determined length. This default setting may result in wasted tape if you frequently create short labels. If you estimate the length that your text will be once printed, you can feed this number into the P-Touch and prevent waste.
