Wonderful - Hama7, I would guess that you and I are diametrically opposed in everything other than labels and posters : )

I've found labels that would be perfect for y2karl, quonsar, fishfucker, 9622.net, and you, hama7.

This is a blast.

There are some great punk band names in there -- the Uzi-16s, anyone?

Our family used to drive south to Myrtle Beach every March when I was a kid. The stop at South of the Border (a wild and tacky tourist trap just past the North Carolina border) was always a highlight. The huge fireworks store there was like heaven to me - aisles and aisles of explosive fun. For me at that age - firecrackers were absolutely the coolest thing on earth. I loved everything about them, including the packaging. Damn, I feel like dropping a lit one into a Coke can right now.

I wish the the commercial fireworks used in city shows had labels that styling!

I work firework shows in the Northwest every year, and we mostly collect bits from the labels that have either descriptive names ("Green Boom Peony with Glitter Tail and Bees" or "Coconut Multi-Spider silver fish") or the instructions pasted on the shells: "Warning! Extremely Dangerous Directions for Firing!"

That's about as fun as the labels on the big shells get. Most of the shells are from China, some from America, even some from France. One of my favorites is the titanium salute: No pretty sparkles, just a hella boom that sets off car alarms blocks away from the stadiums. :-)

Cool - I love some of the artwork in the Class 0 section, like Sky Fairy, BoPeep and Tiger
