My boys are too young for school and besides the Captain's less than two month daycare experiment, they're home with me except when they're at Bible class.  So, labeling things hasn't really been that important yet.  They will be starting to school eventually though, and being a former kindergarten teacher and a daycare teacher, I know how important it is to have kids' stuff labeled!  Parents and kids alike think that the student will remember exactly what their stuff looks like and would remember to always bring it home.  NO WAY!  Have you ever seen the Lost & Found box at an elementary school?  If everything was labeled with Oliver's Labels, the school supplies, clothes, shoes, jackets, backpacks, and more that parents spent their money on would rarely be lost and be able to be returned to it's rightful owner.

Oliver's Labels have a great selection of adorable (and even not-so-adorable for the older kids) labels in all sorts of sizes and shapes, perfect for whatever your needs are.  Their Back to School package is perfect because it includes 95 labels and tags!  Check out what the Back to School package includes:

  • 20 Original Labels
  • 30 Mini Labels
  • 6 Shoe Labels
  • 35 Stick-Eez Clothing Labels
  • 1 Large Bag Tag
  • 3 Mini Bag Tags

You can label just about anything with the Back to School package, including lunchboxes, food containers, notebooks, pencils, pens, markers, scissors, gym shoes, jackets, t-shirts, bags, backpacks, and more.  Oliver's Labels are much more effective (and quicker) than labeling everything with a permanent marker because Oliver's Labels are made to weather the storm of the school year!

We received the Back to School package to review for Baby D.  You'll notice in the pictures that I have used a photo editing program to black out his name for privacy, but you'll get the idea with the picture and if you'd like to see what a certain name or font looks like, you can play around with the customization tools at Oliver's Labels, where you'll have many options for font, font size, picture, color, and more.

I really liked the Stick-Eez Clothing Labels.  Just peel them off, stick them on, press them on a label or directly onto the garment.  If you prefer, there are also iron-on labels made for tagless clothes.  These labels are made to go in the washer and dryer and I've found them to hold up well to our washing and wearing routines.  And when we're ready to pass the clothes on to someone else, the tags are easy to remove.

I also like the mini labels, because they can go just about anywhere.  I like using them for sippy cups.  These labels are meant to go in the dishwasher, fridge, freezer, and outdoors and the clothing labels are safe to go in the washer and dryer.  The prining is guaranteed to not rub off!

The design I chose for Baby D's labels was Transportation, but they have many, many designs available for all ages of kids.  There are even simple labels with no design that would be good for grown-ups, too!

I could go on and on about Oliver's Labels and the many things you could use them for, but I want to point out one more awesome feature they have!  If your child has any food allergies, like eggs, dairy, gluten, etc, you can create labels with your child's name and their allergy so teachers and caregivers are aware at all times.  This would help you, your child, and the adults taking care of your child!

You can purchase the Back to School package from Oliver's Labels for $41.99 or see what other options they have that would fit your needs at their website.

    It is natural that many parents that have small school going kids have to face many problems. Kids regularly take various items with them and some of them are very precious. Parents can't afford to buy these items regularly if their kids loose these various items regularly. So the choice of school labels for kid's various items is best way of securing items.
