Printing labels

Can someone please help me before I throw my laptop and printer out the window? I'm trying to print labels. I set it up in Word 2003 and have used the size it says on the label packet. It all looks fine on screen - text and image is in every cell. When I print they are not in the correct place. Should I be changing the margins? If so how do I know what size? Thanks for your help.

My non-technical solution to this is to copy (trace) the pattern of the labels onto some sheets of cheap paper, print the 'labels' onto that and adjust the cells according to how they overlap the lines, paying attention to all the 'height lock', 'width lock' etc settings. Their boxes seem to get ticked all by themselves. Then print out onto another template and adjust again if necessary.

I'm sure there's a better way, but this works it you set aside some time and arm yourself with a wine.
