We don't have a template, per se, but the label sizes for a 2600 cart are

Main Label:

Width:  2 3/4"
Height: 3 3/8"

End Label:

Width:  2 3/4"
Height: 9/16"

If you're looking for a run of labels, we can print high-quality color
labels on glossy, die-cut sheets (with rounded corners). You can find more
information, along with pictures, here:

You've already been pointed to the long thread on AtariAge regarding this
subject , but I think MegaManFan (one of the users in our forum) summed it
up nicely as follows:

* Randy was selling hacks Thomas made w/o his permission
* Thomas asked Randy politely to please stop selling them
* Randy told Thomas to bugger off, he'd do as he damn well pleased
* Thomas reluctantly exposed this unethical practice to AtariAge
* A bunch of people came out with their own stories about Randy's ethics
* Instead of standing up to the accusations Randy folded to play martyr
* Snider-Man officially declared the subject dead

As far as making one-off carts, we will gladly provide that service as long
as the binary isn't one that someone is actively protecting or we've been
given explicit permission to produce the game(s) in cart form.  If you
simply want a copy of your game in cartridge form, that's not a problem at
all.  :)
