>what is the easy way

Use an application that was designed to print labels. By that I mean, not a
web page.

I would use something like ShotGraph. It let you make images from text.

this way you have complete control on the size in relation with the
size of the label

I used it on my page, users can make their stamp-layout

Yes, it can easily be done with a clientside table filled with a
serverside database output loop.

The css in my case, that does not use Avery, since that is not what we
use here in Europe, looks like this. I use seperate tables with identical
content for the screen and the printer table. Measurements are given in
mm [millimeter], and any good printerdriver will comply:

<style type="text/css" media="print">

body {
background-color:white;
font-size: 12pt;
margin:0;
margin-top:0;
}

table {
table-layout:fixed;
}

table.pagebreak
{
page-break-before:always;
}

table.nopagebreak
{
page-break-before:;
}

td {
font-size: 12pt;
width:33%;
height:37mm;
padding-left:8mm;
border-left:white dashed 1px;
border-bottom:white dashed 1px;
border-collapse: collapse;
}

..scherm {display:none;}

</style>
<style type="text/css" media="screen">

body {
background:#bbb;
font-size: 18pt;
text-align:center;
}

table {
background-color: #eee;
border-right:red dashed 1px;
margin:40px;
}

td {
font-size: 9pt;
text-align:left;
width:40mm;
height:27mm;
padding-left:8mm;
border-left:red dashed 1px;
border-bottom:red dashed 1px;
border-collapse: collapse;
}

..scherm {display:;}

</style>
