The amount of ink used is generally governed by the "quality" of the printing. Depending on the application you are using to print labels, there should be a way to choose that option, and maybe even the type of paper in the printer.
The "draft" option uses the least ink, but it also gives the faintest printout.
In a similar manner, selecting photo paper will use a lot of ink because it is highly absorbent, but selecting plain paper uses less.
You will have to experiment with the printer options.

I am using Avery label paper to print labels, so it is not plain paper. My labels are formatted to fit Avery labels. However, whenever I print a page, they come out smudged and heavy on ink. That is my issue.
