Does anyone make printable templates for various outlets and covers?

In the process of building the house and theater I'm interested in experimenting with where outlets and wall switches will go. But I'd like to make it 'wife friendly' by stapling up printed examples of the outlets.

But I've yet to find a source for such things. I'm in need of all the typical stuff, single through 6-gang switch boxes, single and double 110vac wall outlets and various combinations of CATV, CAT5 and such.

Anyone got pointers to a source for these?

Thanks!

The trick is getting them for printing actual size. I'd kinda hoped someone out there would have already made a set of them in PDFs. Sure, I can go rearrange them in visio or whatever and print them, but has nobody else done them already?

Along the way STFW did find a couple of useful resources:

Just resize that .JPG to something huge and have it print out on multiple pages...
