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.

Expect we will have to go to full sheet laser printing and just get used to waiting for bigger batches or re-feeding partial sheets.  Have seen others using the Dymo printers but just for spine labels or just for pocket labels but not for both together.
