It works fine with fiber, you just get less space.  If you think
about how the label wraps around part of the bottom" of the white
tab wraps over part of the top.

With a small amount of trial and error it's quite easy to hand-write
or make a machine print at the right spacing on the label to get
the words to line up with the "flat" sides of a duplex fiber jumper.

Simplex you get like one line if you wrap it tight to the cable.  You
can "flag" them, put the simplex jumper at the bottom of the white,
wrap the clear around the back and up and over the written part so
it stands out like a flag.
