How to add text on elliptical or cylinder surface in SolidWorks?

I have a problem. How can I add text onto elliptical or cylinder surface in SolidWorks. Using normal text adding under sketch gives me only flat text, but sometimes I would like to add tekst on cylinder or elliptical sirfaces.

To understand my problem better, look here Hammer v2
This is the model I would like to add proper text on in the future.

Sometimes when Wrap features don't work I split the elliptical/cylinderical body in two half parts and then use wrap command. After wrapping I combine them and the result is same. Though 1 face is increased by this method.
