1) You should make sure you're buying the newer crack-n-peel labels, on
which the backing is scored along the center.
2) If you have the older stuff, bend a corner sharply from the plastic
side (front) towards the paper side (backing). The plastic label has more
spring in it, and will spring back away from the paper -- which will stay
bent -- and you'll have some separation that you can peel from.
