I've been frustrated by not being able to access all the wonderful labels available by talented BCers. So I tried to compile some lists that people can look at.

You can see labels if they are pre-numbered. You can click on to an order screen if they are public. So I am listing some here under categories. Please feel free to add more links.

Yes, you can, but you can't order from there. They won't get added to your shopping cart when you click the button. Yes, that's a nasty bug. :-(

You are kidding me. We can't see them from the store, but if we can see them and they are public, we can't order them? Really? REALLY?

I am astounded. Speechless. My question is how do we support BC if they are making it this difficult?

No, I cannot. It takes me to my own bookplate galleries. A window flashes up briefly, but too brief to read... I can't see which bookplate it tries to show. Might as well be Tyler. But no, I can't place that order, I'm afraid.
My setup is not exactly vanilla, though. It might work for others. But I don't have high hopes.

By the way, I really appreciate what you're trying to do here.

Well, thanks for trying the link. I didn't think it would work. Too simpl[ly hard].

BC Release Day http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13205780/ solittletime


Just to be clear, I didn't design that bookplate. It was submitted for the BC day contest and wasn't the official winner, but I had some made for my use anyway (since the rules said we could).

sorry, my fault. Who did?

I don't remember and they don't list the runners-up to the contest anywhere that I know of.

Well, if they post here I will put their name into the appropriate thread rather than (now) TBA. Thanks for the correction, sorry for the confusion.
Profile Image

Azuki designed that one.

Thanks for the info. It's corrected on the thread.

I'd love it if people would post other examples. Several reasons: it's neat to see the plates; it may be useful if the order button can be fixed; and finally it tells the PTB there is indeed interest.

Your spit, so to speak, has been forwarded to some relevant people.

Workaround

If anyone sees a label here that they really want to buy, please tell me as much (here in the thread). I can grab the image and recreate the label, and thus get it back on the Most Recent Bookplates page for a while. From there, it CAN be bought (I've tested that).

That's a great offer and good to know. Thank you :-)

I just wanted to inform Ghanescha who was looking for a DrWho Label, but than I saw that you helped her already and made a new TardisLabel.

I like to sell many things, but I prefer not to sell people a 'No' if I can help it :-)

If you're friends with someone on the BookCrossing site, I believe you can see their labels and order from there. So, anyone who wants some of my labels, go ahead and friend me, and even though I'm a curmudgeon, and generally like to friend folks I've met in real life, I'll friend you back and you can have access to order from my labels. Thanks for the shoutouts quietorchid.
Profile Image
No, not really. I love your labels, I've ordered your labels, but I can no longer access them. The first 12 labels of my friends are all taken up by someone else's labels. Sigh. I am waiting to see a few more pre-numbered examples (hopefully) as Moem has kindly offered to grab them and place them as 'recent labels' so we can grab them.

You can see why the frustration. I've ordered many beautiful labels in the past, but can not access any previous order either since the upgrade.
Profile Image
So that's a REAL STRONG hint (plea) for people to give a link to a pre-numbered label book they are proud of or like. Please?

Order?

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11792271/

Can you put Bookczuk's grafitii READ THIS back up on most recent? (link above). I would like to make an order now that I've got a new bookplate myself. Thanks

RE: Order?

Can you put Bookczuk's grafitii READ THIS back up on most recent?

Sure thing. It's on there now.
Profile Image
Thanks! I've placed an order. Except the label I ordered states it was made by Moem, not Bookczuk. I figure it was because you had to copy it, but that explains why the BC day plate I copied on this thread was attributed to solittletime rather than Azuki.

That's exactly why.
