Got to love michlib-l, you always come through!
I think the answer for us will be Bayscan
BayScan/TSC Thermal Transfer Label Printer, $399.00
Printer can be set up either for just spine or spine and pocket or DVD
labels, probably other stuff too; website has the printer and most likely
consumables labels and ribbons right there on the same page. I got a
recommendation to check them out (thank you St. Charles!). Gave them a
call, and they talked me through the one that would suit me best.
Price is more than inkjet printers but the labels will be thermal transfer
with a resin ribbon. Ribbon tends to last about 4 rolls of labels (so
about 8000 labels).
