Avery has recently released the Avery 5294 label, a new 2.5 inch round label sheet for laser printers.

Because this label was released after Microsoft Publisher 2000 released to the public, Publisher 2000 does not include templates for this label sheet. However, you can create a custom template for this label sheet in Publisher 2000.

NOTE: Because of the wide margin settings required by most inkjet printers, you can only use this label sheet with laser printers.
