Don't forget to order your supplies for this year's International BookCrossing Day (April 21)! The last day to order them is March 25, because we'll need time to get them to you before the big day arrives. And this year's labels were designed by Azuki and they're great. So don't miss out, get your orders in while you can!

I've made custom bookplates before, but it's been a while
and I can't remember how and can't find the right page. Can someone point me to the correct page or link to make an image into a bookplate, please. Thanks.
ETA: Also clicking on a custom bookplate that showed in a particular book used to take you to the order form, but wouldn't actually add the bookplate to your order recently. Now, when I try to click on a bookplate, nothing happens at all. It doesn't even take that first step of taking you to the store order form. I don't know if that's good or bad. I hope that someday we will be able to re-order them again.
Use the "my bookplates" link under the "home" tab. You can also get there via the "how to bookcross" page under "information" - it's one of the label options.
However, I've seen reports of bugs in the custom-label process; that may depend on specific configurations, so if yours works, that'd be good to hear. [I did notice that the "create custom label" button wasn't working for me - turns out something in its positioning seems a bit off, at least on my configuration, so I could click it if I aimed the cursor at the bottom edge of the button but not if I clicked in the center. FWIW.]

Thanks for that, Gory. I kept clicking on Create Custom Label before and nothing happened. And when I tried your trick and clicked on the very bottom right, it worked.
However, that brought me to a page that says only , "Alternative content" and a button below that that says, "Get Adobe Flash player" and that's all.
Nothing about making labels.
ETA: I'm using Windows 10 if that makes a difference.
That may be something I was told not to install as it had security problems. Does that sound right? Is it safe to install?
I'm having trouble answering that. It is and it isn't.
What I do is this: I have Flash installed, but my browser is set to only display Flash objects on request. This means that instead of the Flash object, I get a button and if I click that, it will work as it should. If I don't, Flash is not activated and so there is no risk. I only activate Flash on familiar sites such as BookCrossing.
Can you ask your local nerd what they think of that solution?
