If this waste cannot be engineered out, then the problem is with the manufacturer, not the consumer.
Consider this a poor choice, if you are printing an occasional, single label.
To start with I will describe the problems I ran in to. After installing 6 AAA batteries (or a 7-9v DC power supply) and then plugging it into my Windows 10 64bit PC with the supplied USB cable, a Window explorer popup showed an executable to run (simple edit/printing software for the device). I then double clicked the executable which launched their software, however when I typed information in to the label box and clicked print it ejected about two inches of label with nothing on it. I double checked everything and tried again with the same results. At this point I Googled “PT-1230PC downloads” and found a link to support.brother.com which had drivers and the full Editor software. I installed the drivers which I believe corrected the problem however after the driver install, the Window explorer popup showing an executable no longer worked. Because I could no longer run their simple program from the popup I installed the “FREE” full version from there web download which worked and printed perfectly.
So, now that their drivers and full software application is loaded and working perfectly I have been able to play with it a bit. By default, the full program opens in a tab called “Express”. This tab gives all the basic features you need to print a label however if you’re a power user, switching to the “Professional” tab gives a lot more options. Some of these options include Word Art, Bar codes, easier access to layouts, and much more.
Long story short, in my case I had to load their drivers and full software program located on their web site. I have had a lot of fun printing labels and for the price I am really enjoying this handy label maker. I have used hand held label makers in the past which are very time consuming – I would buy this over one of them any day.
I was hoping I could force the margins down as it STILL wastes a TON of material. Plan your labels and print them all at once, cut them manually, and you'll get a lot more out of them.
Once setup and updated, it works great.
