one thing - every line seems full-justified except for the second one from the bottom "11-3..." - should that be full-justified, too?

This is so great! The lettering and type is spot on and the top and bottom border keeps everything from looking too stranded in the white space. I noticed the 2nd to last line too but wasn't terribly distracted by it. I would have to see how it looked spaced out but I think it is probably alright as is.
