no love? I just want some ideas... I'm not looking to steal your creativity, etc. I was hoping there might be websites where you can buy a blank graphic and fill in your designs, etc.

Ya i have looked at that before... I'm doing most of my work with photoshop CS2. I was hoping someone might know of a place with a bunch of graphics to choose from, even if I have to pay. Someone recently posted a link to a site that you can do that with, but I can't find the darn link.

Thanks for the response nonetheless

I lift stuff from all over using images.google.com

Since I'm not using the images commercially, I don't feel any remorse.

I do the same thing..and usually I alter the photo anyway....I crop it, or change it's colors, or reverse it, all depending on what I'm looking for.

I heist Google images too. If you have an idea...like "St. Patty's Day" and Google that, then click the images deal at the top of the page, you'll end up with 10,000 images and NO you don't need to pay for them if you don't use them commercially.

I too am interested in finding the cool little banners, ribbons, and stuff that makes some of you guy's labels SO freeken cool.
