I think most of those wrap-around labels are DIY.  If you put your addresses into Excel, you could do a mail merge and print them from Word directly onto your label sheet.  We went this route but printed directly on the envelopes – that might be easier for you?  Unless the wrap-around label is an important part of the design.

I believe most people that use those nifty wrap-around labels created them with their Xyron macines. Could be wrong, but that’s what I’ve always thought. If you really want the look without buying the Xyron, you could do an alchemy request on etsy.

I had an etsy seller make wrap around mailing labels for me and she did a great job for $10!!  She made labels in a word doc so I could insert the addresses, and then I printed them on avery sticker paper.  However, I bet a lot of the etsy sellers would be willing to do a mail merge for you with the labels, and then send you the final document with all the labels to print.  You’d still have to cut them out, but it would save some time. 

I’ll say this, I ADORE the look of the wrap arounds and am thrilled with how mine are coming out.  I had originally wanted calligraphy and couldn’t afford it, but I’m just as happy with these- for much less money! 

To give credit where its due, my etsy vendor was belletristics and she was really wonderful.  I liked her so much that I hired her to help me make menus too!

I did wrap arounds for my inner, outer and RSVP envelopes.    DIY’ing them was time consuming (although totally mindless in front of the TV activity) but less frustrating for me trying to get envelopes to go through the printer (and I too prefer the wrap around look).

I created my art/labels in word, cut the paper, then ran them through a xyron machine.  I preferred printing onto paper first because my envelopes were linen, I wanted the labels to be a matte linen as well.

If you’re not into doing that, I’d go the way of etsy – there is always someone out there willing to do it!
