I hate to be a downer, but there’s only three weeks left before the kids go back to school. Yikes! Tee will be starting full days in her second year of preschool. It’s crazy how quickly she’s growing up. My little girl is learning to read and taking on more responsibility at home and at school. But not so much that she doesn’t still forget her stuff all over the place!
Everything she takes to school has to be labeled of course, but labels aren’t just for school! Any time more than two kids get together, there are always mystery items left behind. Without a label it usually takes at least 2 or 3 phone calls to match up the missing item with its child. For us though, the danger zones are the walk to and from school, and at the playground. When stuff gets lost outside, we might as well forget about ever getting it back. I can’t even begin to tell you how many mittens we’ve lost that way.
That’s why labels are such a good idea. Oliver’s Labels are super durable, waterproof, and stay exactly where you stick them. Their labels are dishwasher safe, and their clothing labels are made to stay put through the washing machine and dryer. The standard school package includes these 95 labels:
- 20 x Original Labels
- 35 x Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels
- 30 x Mini Labels
- 6 x Shoe Labels
- 1 x Large Bag Tag
- 3 x Mini Bag Tags
There are two particular features I really love about Oliver’s Labels. Well, three if you count the fact that they’re a Canadian company.
First of all, I love the level of customization that Oliver’s Labels offers. When you buy a label package, you have the option of adding extra labels and taking out labels you don’t want. It’s easy to create the exact combination of labels you need. For example, we didn’t need the large bag tag so I took that out of our school package and doubled up on the original labels instead.
Plus you’re not limited to just one design for your package. There are so many designs to pick from, including their new Special Edition Nickelodeon designs featuring Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob, Bubble Guppies, Team UmiZoomi, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can pick a different design and font for each type of label. For our package, Tee picked the Birds theme for most of her labels but decided to mix things up with the sports themed shoe labels and Special Edition Bubble Guppies mini labels. You do have to have the same personalization on each label though. I wish there were some way to split packages between two kids.
And then there’s the Found-it system, a FREE optional lost and found system only offered by Oliver’s Labels. When you opt in, each label has the instructions, “If found, visit oliverslabels.com” and a 9 digit unique code. During the checkout process, just leave your email. If someone finds your stuff, they enter the code on the Oliver’s Labels website and and the website will gather their info (which item, where it was found, how to get it back, etc.) and send you an email.
The Found-it system is the feature that makes Oliver’s Labels a no brainer for me. Remember those lost mittens? Well, with the Found-it code on our labels, the chances of getting our stuff back are way better. I don’t really want to put my phone number on all our belongings, but the Found-it code lets the finder contact me without the worry of putting my personal information out there for anybody to see. In fact, I think I need one of these labels for my umbrella!
The School Package I reviewed starts at $41.99. Check out all the different labels, packages, and customization options available at Oliver’s Labels. Regular shipping is FREE in Canada, and FREE in the US on orders over $30.
