I could go so far as to make a stamp of my logo out of a potatoe, make the
paper and cut or tear them all by hand. I'm just accustomed (on the job) to
having the storeroom full of any kind of graphics supplies I could want or

for anything. OK, I'll make them one at a time. Thanks for all the input.
Live and be well,
