For standard linear tape labels, making a sharp s-curve bend in the label near one end will often cause the backing to
readily separate from the label at that end.
Brother used to include a nifty little tool for doing just that stuck in the bottom of many of their P-Touch labelers.
Don't know if they still do or not.
This trick also works on the linear tape labels on the Brady I mentioned in response to JRA's question as well.
For the self-laminating cable labels, the labels don't stretch all the way to the edge of the backing, so, simple
bending of the backing and attacking with fingernail works pretty quick and easy.

the rhino pro labelers and labels have a split on the backer so they peel easy. oh, and they dont come off with heat
exposure (some of them are even ok after a few years outdoors in florida) like the brother junk does.
I think my megadeluxewithacase model cost about $100 from provantage...
