This part of the manual includes all the information you need to print tapes. It
also tells you how to print special stamp tapes that you can attach to an optional
stamp holder to create your own original stamps.
Never turn power off while printing is being performed.
Make sure that the tape outlet is not blocked before you start printing.
Never operate the tape cutter while printer is being performed (indicated by
the message "NOW PRINTING" on the display).
During printing at very high density, printing of very long text, or repeat printing
of the same text a number of times, the Label Printer may stop printing for
about five seconds. This is not a malfunction, and normal printing should
resume shortly (indicated by the message "NOW PRINTING" on the display).
Never touch the tape cutter while a tape cut operation is being performed.
Doing so can result in cuts and other personal injury.

and expose the adhesive surface is to bend the
tape near one of its ends. This should cause the
tape and its backing to separate, allowing you to
pull them apart.
