Here is my math problem — 3 kids + back to school = lots and lots of labeling! We had to label backpacks and jackets and lunchbags and pouches….and the list goes on and on. Rather than try to use a sharpie or a mailing label, we used Mabel’s Labels. I absolutely LOVE these!!!
My kids like them because they can sit beside me and customize them. They can select their own image on the labels and even select from various colors — all to make them one of a kind and show off their own personality. The one that we purchased was the Mabel’s Labels Ultimate Combo Pack, which retails for $42. This is a great option as it isn’t just one label – it includes several items!
- 40 Skinny-mini labels
- 50 Tag Maes
- 16 Shoe Labels
- 2 Teeny Tags
While your kids are most interested in the colors and design of the labels, moms (and dads) will appreciate the quality. These labels are dishwasher and microwave safe. We’ve had a bottle with a label on it which we’ve used for more than 2 years – and it still hasn’t come off through lot and lots of washing! They are also safe enough to go through the washing machine. We tagged a t-shirt of my daughter’s and that label has lasted for through 4 months of washing. These labels just work. Plain and simple.
I’ve seen other styles (and actually tried them). Some of them peeled shortly after being applied. I had one that came right off in the dishwasher. I don’t have the time (or money) to have to keep replacing labels on the items we use all of the time. We “stick” with Mabel’s Labels for our kids because they just work.
Saving money is always important to my family. However, so is quality. If I have to purchase something over and over again because it fails, I may end up spending more in the long run than if I had just spent a bit more up front to buy a quality product. That is honestly how I feel about Mabel’s Labels. You get what you pay for.
