frustrated with badly-designed/badly-organized websites

we have a problem with your brain being
Dear Avery:

I don't know whether the label I'm looking for is a mailing label, a color printing label, a filing label, an identification label, or a special use label, and I'd rather not click through every damn link on your site trying to figure it out. Would it really be so difficult to include a page that lists every label you sell with its dimensions and suggested uses?

Yours in irritation,

Google is your friend in these matters.

I've had that problem with Avery, and with state of CA web sites. The only way to find what you need is to use an external search engine, because the site designers are complete and utter morons.

The Avery instructions are also great because they send you to a generic URL, and oftentimes, the part number you enter isn't really recognized. Last time I needed templates for CD labels I had to guess and choose several times before I found one that was correct...

Third Parties who compete with Avery are your friend. I've had this exact problem myself.

while we're ranting.....how about template in a useful format.....like anything besides word.......

something that can be brought into a page layout program? (this pertains more the business cards and cd labels than the ones you listed)
