Shouldn't that be in Latin?

What did the Romans do for us?
Education, roads, sewerage, central heating, it never ends.

I once tried removing seam lines on soft plastic with a heated pin as suggested. NEVER AGAIN!!!!
Being Grammar School educated, don't you know?, we had to study Latin for the first two years. The school motto was 'Labor ipse voluptas'. I'll leave that one with you. A clue. it wasn't most of the time!!!

Like you I did Latin for 2 years.
Labor Omnia Vincit.
None Sibi sed Mundo.
Especially for Haddock " Viva lampada Tradunt.
All mottos of one sort or another.

Found Latin to be most useful when riding out a force ten off the Norwegian coast.

I was trying to remember Haddock's old school motto and obviously got it wrong.
