[scribus] Colour Management, etc

I use both Inkscape & Scribus (beginner at both) and do not consider them competing  tools, but rather as complementary tools. I frequently include graphics created with Inkscape in Scribus documents. 

Not knowing what the desired label is supposed to look like I can not say which tool would be better, or if maybe a combination of both would be best. 

I generally use Inkscape to draw pictures. I uses Scribus to layout text. Of course there is a fair degree of overlap, but I have never included a Scribus document in an Inkscape graphic.
