Cindi --

Great ideas, however on their own those laser labels (or any other kind of paper
label) don't weather well; the paper of the label dissolves, the glue doesn't
hold, etc.  The best results I've had have been by covering the label with a large
piece of clear plastic packing tape.

While we're on the subject, how many people want to file a class-action lawsuit
against the makers of "permanent" markers for false advertising?  ;-D
