Question Continous printing with CUPS thermal printer (GeBE USB Printer N78)

I'm working with a GeBE USB Printer N78 thermal printer for Linux. The CUPS driver is working, but the problem I'm facing is that if I print an image with:

lp filename

CUPS simulates a "paper" and printer a lot of empty space between the images (when printing multiple images). My goal is to "just print what is sent to CUPS, without any additional empty space.

My question is, can this be done with some configuration, or does it require some additional support from the printer driver?

Thank you
