       <can be hacked date>
   Dates will not include the year so printed labels can  used in subsequent years, the odd item escaping for a second year is not seen as a problem. 
   Larger white peelable labels will be available to place under the coloured one for items where glue residue is not acceptable.
   Quantity: not sure but will start with 20 sheets ( 240 labels ) of green labels and 20 sheets of peelable labels ( 160 labels ) for this quarter & see how it goes
