Remember how many labels you've printed out of the current sheet
and insert that many blank records into the beginning of the
table you're printing.

PS: Provide a way for the user to change this figure -- something
    will go wrong eventually.

Its not a real good idea to put labels through a second time.  The labels tend to come of
on the rollers inside your laser printer and Its expensive to get them fixed.  Consider using
a dot matrix (1 across labels) or holding the print job until you have a full 30.  The problem
you describe is what prompted the advent of single label printers allthough I think a dot
matirx printers are better because they have other uses.
