Once your kids go from being in your care 24/7 to going to day care or Pre-School or Elementary School or Camp - it is up to you to label each and every item that leaves your house if you ever want to see it again. And it goes way beyond clothes to lunch bags, tupperware, utensils, cups, water bottles, hats, backpacks, tote bags, towels, socks, note books, really all school supplies, diapers, blankets, toys, books...you name it. If it leaves you house - you need to label it.
So off I went with my trusty sharpie and putting my kids names on everything. Have you ever tried writing you child's name with a sharpie on a piece of clothing that did not have a tag? It isn't pretty people, it isn't pretty. Now factor in that I like to re-sell a lot of my children's clothing. And their names on everything just brings the value down. This year I thought there must be a better way - faster, cleaner and not permanent. Enter Loveable Labels.
Loveable Lables are personalized durable labels and tags that are waterproof, dishwasher and microwave safe, washer and dryer safe, sun and beach safe, sunscreen and temperature safe.
So in getting ready for school, I had these labels and went to town - I labeled H's shoes, used bag tags for his backpack, put the Press n' Stick Clothing DOTS in all of his sweatshirts and jackets (the most frequently lost item), and used the sticker labels for all of his school supplies. It was such a breeze. Easy Peasy! Next I moved onto C and basically repeated for her, but also included all of the lunch items because she has to bring a lunch every day. So far, after a few weeks, these labels are holding strong. They are standing up to the extremely rough handling of my kids. They have not started to peel or fade. I love the durability of these labels and I love that they are extremely customizable. I got to choose color, icons, and types of labels I wanted. All in all, this was a great well made product, that is easy to use and durable.
