Subject : Best practice for poster labels
The new poster designs have presented a customizing challenge for some libraries.
Rebecca Schweisberger, office assistant at the Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille
Library, sent the attached template she designed for customizing the vertical 8-1/2 x 11 inch
_Take a Break with a Digital Talking Book_ posters. She printed the
template on Avery shipping labels 5163, and used the (Text Direction( feature in
Microsoft Word for text orientation.
If you would like to use the template provided, just select the graphic and delete it.
Then, with your keyboard in typeover mode, enter the appropriate information for your library.
The 2 x 4 inch Avery shipping labels are available in white (5163) or clear (8663) from
most office-supply stores. (If you order the clear, you will need to use light-colored text
and print with a laser printer.)
