First I would like to introduce myself. My name is Steve Bridges (aka 

I have made a 100% switch to Ubuntu on August 1st and documented the

using Audacity. If you care to check that out, it's a musical podcast 
that has been running for almost 4 years now

There are a few ways to make your own stickers, there is full sheet 
sticker kits that you can get. I was lucky to have a co-worker print 
them out and laminate them for me so they last longer (kind of). But 
there are a few places you can customize labels for laptops. There is 
also free Powered by Ubuntu stickers available from System 76 

There is also which you can customize your own full sized 
graphic for your case.

Hope this helps.
