But labelling isn't as easy as it sounds. Not everything can be written on, and pen/marker eventually fades over time and washing. Plus, who has time to write on each and every item? There is an easier way:
Lovable Labels is a proud Canadian company started by a mom who needed to label all of her child's belongings at the childcare centre. Lovable Labels has developed the best quality lables that are durable, waterproof, dishwasher and microwave safe, washer and dryer safe, sun safe, bleach safe, sunscreen safe and temperature safe. These wonderful personalized labels are meant to stand the test of time and everyday use - and kids will put them through a lot! :) ALL products are manufactured using a commercial machine with industrial materials.
Lovable Labels makes a large selection of labels and tags for a variety of purposes. All can be personalized with text of your choice and a graphic can be printed on as well. Products include: multi-purpose sticker labels, bag tags, clothing labels, household labels, stationery and safety products such as allergy labels and medical wristbands. As well, Lovable Labels has combined several items into value packs - these are great because they really cover all the bases!
We've been busy labelling Jonathan's school stuff with the Back to School pack he received. In the pack are:
- 15 Regular Sticker Labels
- 80 Slimline Sticker Labels
- 48 Press n'Stick Clothing DOTS
- 12 Shoe Labels
- 2 Mini-Metal Tags (two 4” silver ball chains included)
- 12 Square Labels
I really can't say enough about how pleased we are with the labels. They are easy to apply, and they STICK!!! We've attached them to rubber boots, shoes, jackets and hoodies, water bottles, a USB stick and more. It's been several weeks now, and they are just as stuck as when we started.
Specialty logos are also a possibility; just arrange this by email in advance.
The bag tags are a great idea - and it's really handy to have 2 in the set. We used 1 for the backpack and 1 for the gym bag. These are items that typically it would be harder to stick a label on, but the bag tag attaches with a ball-chain (included), so can go on anywhere there's a loop (ie zipper, handle, strap etc). Super easy!
I know the main Back to School rush is over, but really, if you don't have your child's stuff labelled, you should really consider it. There are enough labels in a set to cover many many items, or to last for a few years of labelling. You can also purchase items separately of course. To help you out, we're running a giveaway as well!!
Lovable Labels has generously supplied us with a "Back to School Pack" for one lucky winner! Thanks, Lovable Labels!
