Oliver's Labels to try. These labels can be stuck on anything and are dishwasher and laundry safe. They will never fade, scuff or peel. I was able to choose the design I wanted and there is everything from cute, to monograms, to allergy related, but I chose the nature design.
I was sent original labels which I have put on a backpack and a lunchbox. They have lasted through the wear and tear of my kindergartner taking them to and from school everyday.
Some other uses for the original labels (taken from their website):
Kid Uses: School stuff, camp stuff, sippy cups, bottles, toys, food containers, electronics, lunch boxes and sports equipment.
Adult Uses: Laptop, MP3 player, water bottle and cell phone.
I was also sent the mini labels which have been put on my daughters glasses and some pencils. These would be perfect at back to school time when you are trying to label all of those school supplies.
Some other uses for the mini labels (taken from their website):
Kid Uses: Toothbrushes, eye glasses, pencils, pencil crayons, markers, scissors, spoons and toys.
Adult Uses: Cell phone, MP3 player, pens, pencils and sunglasses.
shoe labels which are in my daughters shoes and they look just as great as when I first put them in there. I thought for sure they would have come out already, but they are very durable.
Some other uses for the shoe labels (taken from their website): Uses: Sandals, runners, flip-flops, boots and any other footwear that leaves the house!
And last I was sent some Stick-eez Clothing Labels these are stickers you stick to the "care tag" of any garment, no sewing or ironing involved. If the clothes you'd like to use these on do not have a "care tag" then there are some Iron-on Clothing Labels available that would work for you. I put these on my daughters jackets and on her school shirt. I have washed and dried her school shirt and the label has stayed with no problems.
Some other uses for these clothing labels (taken from their website):
Uses: Any clothing with a "care tag" such as t-shirts, pants, underwear, gym clothes, snow pants and jackets. Especially useful for applying directly to clothing with nylon shells that can’t be ironed.
Something else about these labels that I really like, is they have an optional tracking system. If you choose to include this on your labels (free of charge), the person that finds your lost item can go to the website which is listed on the label and enter a unique code also found on the label and Oliver's Labels sends you an e-mail letting you know your item was found. That is the reason we label our things after all, so that we can get them back if they are lost.
You can purchase these items by specific product or in sets. At first I thought these were a little pricey for labels, but since I have tried them and know how durable they are I think they are a good deal. Think about all the money you would save if everything you or your child lost had a way to get back to you.
