        Started with avery 5160 template. I wanted to do some customized color labels. The template as is has limited options. however once you print to the word document and see the layout. You can modify one cell with the desired customization and later import to the Label dialog. With this I was able to print color labels with clip arts and looks very nice. I printed once in plain paper to check how is the edges and quality. I did not waste any label papers too. Thanks Avery kudos
