Default Bookplate Templates

I'm looking for some free, retro/traditional bookplate templates that'll just let a newbie insert a name. This is (literally) a charity job, for books to be donated to a specialized library.

Anyone tripped over any of these recently? I'd settle for lo-res, if they had a woodcut-y look to them. I have Pshop CS Win, but no good vector program, if that matters (unless you count Corel Draw 2 on the machine at a relative's).

I'd love also to have suggestions on how to gum up and paste on about 100 of the things. Is Avery going to save me?

Extra points for Latin and a grotesque/mememto mori or two, to partially conceal my incompetence (g).

Dover Publishing carries bookplates. When I used to get their catalogs I remember perusing them.

Hmmm. Don't know if they have anything retro, but Avery's web site apparently has templates:

But I think they are Word templates.

I also found Word templates for children's bookplates at:

I think the challenge will be finding templates for Photoshop. Most of the ones I found were for Word or PageMaker.
