We actually considered using this type of label back when we were
gearing up to relabel all of our collection. As best I remember,
unless someone else has added this functionality, it is not possible
at present. It would require messing with the template code
(C4::Labels::Template) and also the function responsible for
calculating the next label position (this is in label-create-pdf.pl
iirc). That may be a bit of oversimplifications, but is pretty much
what would be involved.

Definitely an enhancement request. :-)

Kind Regards,
