    I have a similar product, PT-1010. Margin can be set using -> -> . However, the product always waste 1 more inch of tape to provide an additional preceding margin and ask me to cut it off by hand using scissors. I can't find a way to disable the preceding margin.

SOURCE: ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue

It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

SOURCE: too much tape

Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9

Tune machine off. Press and hold F and the delete button (2 buttons below the F). Whilst holding these down, turn the unit on by pressing and releasing the power button. Then release the F and delete buttons and the language option will appear.

When I print a label, there is a blank white space before and after the printed text. How do I reduce the amount of tape printed before and after the text so as to maximize the label tape available?


you can, change the margins to narrow. you'll decrease the right margin but not the left margin which accdg to my research, is the space needed for the ptouch to print.

My ps 1100 label maker prints only on black side of tape


This depends on the TAPE CARTRIDGE you have in your label printer. Apparenlty, you have a TRANSPARENT TAPE on it, and the printer prints in BLACK only.

Just replace the tape cartridge

It cuts the label in half forcing me to Print twice to get the full label.


I finally figured this out for myself. It turns out that one of the function settings on your label maker got adjusted accidentally. Go to the "Margin" setting, then make sure there is one hashmark (#) displayed. It appears that one is the right number of hashmarks. When I put in two, the tape was too long, and with none, it cut my label in half. You enter the hashmark by pressing the arrow buttons at the top of the label maker (next to the Function button).

Printed Tape Cuts Off Letters


I was having the ame issue. Found the solution on the user manual (posted online). Press Function, scroll to "Margin", press "Function", use arrows to select "#" or "##", then press Function again. Now it should print with a margin, thus not cutting off your letters. Mine was set to "-", which is basically no margin.

The font size will not print on #5


I'm not sure if it will work in your case, but I found mine did this too if my text was too long, try a short message and see if it works right then. not sure what the limit on the length is.

Once you snap in the catridge you have to put the back of the p-touch back on. After that you can feed through the tape by pressing Code Space. If the back of your P-touch is not on it will not advance through.... I learned the hard way :) Hope it helps you all.
