If you have children, you know that keeping track of items can be difficult. This statement multiplies exponentially when the kids start preschool, school, or are attending extra curricular events. One surefire way to keep track of their items is to put a label on them!
My teen (13) has several items that are pretty common with children in her age group, some of which she definitely would not be happy to lose. Allowing her to design her own label at Oliver's Labels would be a great solution to help her keep track of her things, in a way that I know she would think was fun!
My kindergartner is as responsible as a child of five can be... which means sometimes mittens, hats, gloves, scarves, and even his lunchbox have all come up missing at one time or another. The lunchbox was easy to keep track of, thanks to my big fat permanent black marker. The clothing items, not so much so. I don't want to write on his clothing with a marker (not even on the label), and do you know how many grade school boys have a bright red Spiderman hat stuck in the Lost & Found? Trust me, searching through that box just isn't pretty.
Oliver's Labels has a great solution. For clothing items they have these great iron-on labels that you can put on the tags. They're flat and comfortable and you can put them on fabric cases, mittens, hats, coats, you name it.
For shoes they have crated a durable label that is shaped to fit, and once you place the sticker on the shoe it's not going to easily come off or fade away. These are great if you have little ones in school who switch from winter boots to shoes when they're going into/exiting the building, or playing outside for recess.

My favorite label that they carry is the Stick-eez Clothing Label. These are no-iron, no-sew labels that are guaranteed not to rub off, and they are designed to go through the washer and/or dryer. That means they are practical and easy to use (two of my most favorite things).
Designing them is fun. You select the picture you want (there are many choices!), and what you would like the label to say. This process is extremely easy (if I can do it, you can do it). I designed my set with a Superhero logo and put my son's name on them. You can see the design as you're creating it, so you will know instantly if you want or need to make changes. I couldn't be more pleased with how ours turned out.

I didn't really put 'Mail4Rose'y Little Superhero'
on my son's labels. ;)
The price is reasonable too. At $19.99 for 70 labels, that's just under .29 a label. And the labels give you peace of mind. In fact, I think their logo says it all: Oliver's Labels-how kids' stuff finds its way home!
