yea, it is fine this way too.Actually I was a few hours late with the addition of the" , DE", so the lables were already printed without it. It's fine, I think it gives it a more clean and less cluttered look. Also in Germany we don't put our equivalent of a state behind city names. It's nothing that is gonna bother me in any way.
I could go either way on this one, but I like your decision.The $1s stay as they are as an homage to the original and to save on a lot of work that is not really necessary, I feel.
Best laminate by farAnd yes gear textured laminate lables.
