Plant Labels from your Computer

After doing a bit of research I found a site that sells software that can print tags on plain paper. They include both the botanical name and the common name on the label. As a bonus, the family name is auto-magically tacked on.
Apparently you just laminate the labels and attach them to a wooden stake. They seem to be attractive enough without being too intrusive in the garden. The software is called The Compleat Botanica.
http://www.crescentbloom.com is their Web site.

- Cut up a bleach bottle (or oil bottle, etc.) into spike sized strips. - Make up some nice labels that will fit on the strips (use Paint or Corel Draw or ??? program). - Print the labels on sticky paper (you can buy 8"x11" pages from most office supply stores). You can use photo paper as well (it's thick) as well. - Apply the label to the strip. Use a touch of glue if necessary. - Cover the front of the strip with clear packing tape, wrapping the excess edges around the back. Apply a layer of tape on the back to seal it up.
These should last at least one season. Ink quality will have a lot to do with how long they look good.
Of course you can use wooden stakes, etc....
