The workmanship is really nice, but devoting the entire center of the puzzle to the puzzle title and maker feels excessive. If the puzzle name could get removed, and the SmaZ label attached to the side of the heart instead of the center cubie, it would look much more attractive.

I actually like the center sticker- It makes anyone who doesn't frequent the forums know who originally thought it. No one else really does that.

I think a customized center sticker would be a good idea for a valentine's day gift for someone special.

Like said in some above post, you can customize the center sticker. Also, I think that instead of leaving the edge black, you should cover it with white stickers and put the logo there instead. That way, it won't interfere with the solving and astthetics, while still maintaining the, i dunno, credits?

Actually, I think a combination of the above listed suggestions would be best. Sticker the edges with half pink/red and then list the acknowledgments there. For instance, you could have the stickers on the edge each list something separate. One has your name, one Justin's, and then make the middle on one side say "With Love" over the color of the side you choose to sticker as such.

Customised centre logo with initials or name for the buyer is an excellent idea - I'm not on an ego trip and not worried about my name disappearing for good aesthetics :)
Regarding stickering of the perimeter, sticker scuffing would occur where the arcs of the shape meet. Perhaps there's a way around this problem - I don't know.
