Don't know what I'm doing labelwise, but I would really like to have labels on my first batch before they are all gone. Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions are welcome.

* slight technical problem---I created a label in microsoft publisher and saved it as a jpeg or a gif file. However, whenever I try to open it as a picture in order to upload it, only the text from the label shows up and not the picture on the label or the colors! Any ideas? thnx.

Nice, simple labels. Very cool. I like the guitar in the background.
