Can you help me please?

I don't even think very many people read my blog, but can those of you who do please help me with something? Last post, I told you about the earring stand that I made. In the pictures below, you can see that the earrings are just shy of two inches long. A great tool for on-line selling!

Now I have a couple of questions.

First, should I leave the lines blank or should I write the numbers on them, like a ruler? I think I probably should, it's just that I have terrible handwriting, and I didn't want to ruin the card. I printed the word 'inches' on it using my computer, but I couldn't get numbers to print in the right places. (my computer graphics skills are as bad as my handwriting) Maybe I can find someone with good handwriting to put the numbers on for me. Or maybe I can just buy some stick-on letters at the dollar store, LOL.

Second, can you look at these two pictures, and tell me which way the pic looks better? In the left side picture, I have the edge of the card showing, and in the right-side picture I cropped it so that the lines go all the way off the side of the picture and you can't see the edge of the card. I'm leaning toward the one with the edge of the card showing (the left one), but I keep flip-flopping back and forth, and I can't make a decision.

Thanks for your opinions, and please everyone who reads this, will you let me know what you think, because as I said, I don't get that many visitors.

I think most people can figure out how long the earrings are without the numbers. In my opinon I think the numbers would make the stand to busy. I like the second picture it give a better view on determining the length.

I agree with Therese's Treasures...the second pic is better and you don't need numbers...

first, those earrings are gorgeous! I have to agree with Judy and Therese, no numbers and I like the edge of the card showing. Great idea!

Thanks for helping me! Well, it's 2 to 1. So, I guess I will go with the second method. Sorry, Mandy, even though I agree with you, the votes are in. ;-))

A little late.. but I like the second picture as well, and agree it is fine without numbers. The way you have the markings, and the word 'inches' make it pretty obvious.
And I really like your earrings!!
