[WriteLog] How to batch print labels across several files

I feel like I'm back in the 20th century when I receive a shipment of QSLs 
from the bureau. I want to print 40 or 50 labels but the QSOs are strewn 
across many different WriteLog contest files. Plus it's tedious to go into 
the individual files to tag the QSOs and then print out the 5 or 6 labels 
from that file before moving on to the next file.

I've resorted to using LOTW screens to search for the QSO. Then I copy and 
paste the data into a Word document so that I can massage it to fit on a 
label. I'm feeling embarrassed as I try to describe the process.

How have the smart hams solved this problem? Are there programs available to 
extract the information from LOTW, or WriteLog, or MixW? And how do the 
foreign hams manage to get multiple QSOs on one label?
