Why do you need a template? There's a printed booklet in the box with
the labels that provides all the dimensions you need. Lay out a master
page according to those dimensions and you're good to go.

HOWEVER, whichever way you do it, you need to have had at least a cup of
coffee first. The initial impulse is to create a grid that matches the
labels. You will quickly discover, though, that what you want is a grid
that matches the live copy area. That means that the top of your virtual
label (hence the top margin on the sheet) has to be about 1/8-inch below
the top of the physical label, and the margins and gutters similarly
need to be padded an eighth of an inch in the appropriate places.

I actually find it's easier to make custom guides and rules using
simple addition <G>...but the "padding" thing is correct.

Advanced grids and table tools are the main reason I am going to
InDesign CS, actually. It's Pagemaker's Achilles heel for the type of
multi-column, multiple-aligned financial columns I produce.

Avery labels are a snap. I run them off as needed for postage return
stickers as thanks to 20 years of computing my handwriting's gone to
hell.
