No--I'm not getting paid to say this. I got these the other day in the mail and I have to order more as there are plenty of books I own that I don't want "wandering off". I would suggest using either self-printed or pre-printed return address labels; they're just about the perfect size and if you design your own as I do, you can just include your name and your phone number to make sure your books come home safe and sound. The labels are all different...some are large with wonderful quotes regarding books, while there are also smaller ones with room for your name and phone number. I'm off to order more...

Yes, they are nice looking. But from the day I got them in the mail to now they do not stick for more than a few hours. I wasted 12 bucks. Thankfully it was only 12 bucks or I would be really upset. The butterfly Bookplates are awesome and actually stay put. Don't buy these!
