For the regular Brother labels, my trick is to fold down the corner a
little, that usually makes it easier to peel.  You can also cut the
"whitespace" off the end and that sometimes helps.

Sorry if this was a double post, but I don't think I saw either of these
suggestions in the thread already.  If so make that a +1.

ok, this is horribly pragmatic, but it's real.  yesterday i was in the
westin playing rack and stack for five hours.  an horrifyingly large amount
of my time was spent trying to peel apart labels made on my portable brother
label tape maker, yes peeling the backing from a little label so remote
hands could easily confirm a server they were going to attack.

is there a trick?  is there a (not expensive) different labeling machine or
technique i should use?
