Can I use the logo to make my own labels?

When I realized I could print out a sheet of labels on one of those Avery solid sheet things, I started cutting the labels out in shapes other than strict rectangles. I liked the way they looked and they seemed somehow friendlier. What I'm wondering is: could I use the logo and signpost artwork on the site to design my own labels? Nothing crazy, just moving things around. I am happy to conform to whatever color, font, and/or text requirements you deem necessary. I'd be perfectly willing to submit any designs for approval before I'd use them, because I do not not NOT want to adversely affect this brand you've created and have stewardship of. (gag, gag -- business-speak) So if this is not cool, it is just not cool and that's not a problem. I understand you need to be thinking about marketing and future financial support of the site. Thanks for making me care enough to even want to design labels.

killer - knock yourself out. All we care about is that the URL and the BCID is on the book. You can spray paint them on if the spirit leads ya. :)

I finally figured out how to download and print out the labels, but I have to get a new black ink cartridge. Sooooo, I made my own labels in pretty colors [maybe that's a girl thing?], and they look great. Then I made my own labels and used the little book with feet guy, and I set the printer on HIGH QUALITY, since there's just a *little* black on him, and it worked very nicely. I just added something about releasing "so others may enjoy it" and my nickname.

I also made paper bands to wrap around the book, telling people to check inside the front cover. I figure taping the band to itself to make a *ring* or *band* would keep it there, rather than having just a sticky note on the cover. I guess we'll find out if it works or not. I'm getting ready to release my first book this week. :-)
