Basically, if the content of each label is off by the same amount, then
the margin is wrong.
If the content of each label gets more and more off as you go down the
page, then the size of the body part is off.
Once I have one 5160 layout all set up, then I duplicate it as needed.
I don't think I've ever found one that works properly. For a long time
now I've almost always ignored them and made my own layouts to fit.
The main reason is the differences in printers and applications don't
help either - some can cope with smaller margins than others, and
"template" manufacturers don't usually take this into account.
Even when you've made your own layouts that fit nicely, make sure to
stay well within the label boundaries. Labels by a different
manufacturer designed to be "equivalent" are never the same either.
Differences in the cutting process are the main culprit here - some
label sheets have bigger top margins than others.
After all that, you may still have to tweak your label layout when you
get a new box from the office supply shop, but that doesn't happen very
