off by inserting them into the trimmer. Rounded
labels can look better, and the rounded corners
make the labels less likely to peel away after
sticking.

trimmer table, then insert it as far as it will
go.
When trimming a “half-cut” label, fold it at
the cut line, then insert it into the trimmer
inlet slot with the fold first.
