How can I minimize the tape margin?

  1. Press the [Menu] key and continue pressing the Cursor key ( Cursor ) until [Margin] is displayed.
  2. Press the [OK] key.
  3. Press the Cursor key until [Narrow] is displayed.
  4. Press the [OK] key to apply the setting.
  5. Press the [OK] key.
  6. Cut along the dots " : " with scissors so that the text is centered in the label.


1 inch / 25 mm margin that is produced prior to every label cannot be eliminated due to the construction of the tape mechanism. However, when you print more than one label continuously, the subsequent labels can be printed without excess tape.

The following methods are useful for reducing tape use:


  • Using the [Numbering] function - refer to "How to the use Numbering function".
  • Setting the tape margin to [Chain Print] - make sure that you press the feed button after the last label is printed, otherwise a part of the text may be cut off.
