I wouldn't say Gimp is "better" than PS. It is lacking a few things PS has, and some people (mostly PS users) hate the interface. That said, though, I've been using the Gimp since the late 90s so Photoshop's interface is completely foreign to me and Gimp makes more sense. Current version is pretty good, and you can do a lot of stuff with it.

I tried Gimp but couldn't get it to run, kept failing on startup. I use Photoshop and Corel Painter

When we find out how many bodies you buried in the basement, will we be more shocked or disappointed at the number?

Default Work is the curse of the drinking class

I use MS Publisher and print straight on the Avery labels. Right about the mess to clean up.

I got some Avery 1" round labels from Office Max. The software plugs-in to your WORD.

The circles go on my caps.

I use illustration software from SERIF (SERIF DrawPlus). I have Illustrator and PS but frankly the SERIF is a less expensive (and easier to use, I think) alternative.

I'm using the gummed paper, but the milk thing sounds like something to try.

Sometimes fate smiles on even our most feeble efforts.
