Many label makers (including Brother) use tapes that have a split up the
middle of the back layer, so you can peel it off half-at-a-time and not
fight with finding edges, etc.

Otherwise I suppose it's just a case of finding the knack.  My label
maker is of the cheaper variety and the tape i've been getting for it
doesn't have the back-split, so I get to fight with it on the occasion
that the knack doesn't seem to work...
