How to Chain Print Labels to save Label Tape

There are two ways to print labels using the Brother label printers and each utilizes a small portion of blank label tape used as a "grab-tab" to help peel away the label from its backing.  The first method by default prints them individually with a small piece of "grab-tab" left on the end of each scored piece.  The second, using this method, prints and scores them all in a row with one piece of "grab-tab" at the beginning of the strip.

Individually Printed Labels

By default, labels are printed individually with a small "grab-tab" at the front of each:

From the File tab at the far left of the ribbon menu, choose the 'Options' button and navigate to the 'Labels' tab.  At the bottom of the dialog there is a 'Chain Printing (not for all models)' checkbox.  Check this box to enable chain printing.  Uncheck the box in order to go back to printing them individually.
