Sorry, Ulrike.  When you understand his description you'll recognize
that his approach is reasonable.  Admittedly, there is a plethora of
other solutions too and I would prefer another approach.

Please note that there are many labels on a sheet, two per row, and
there are many rows.  We are not talking about just two labels.

However, I would first consider to use \rotatebox from the graphics
package rather than 'rotating' or 'scape'.
