Back to School with Mabel's Labels

#BacktoSchool with Mabel’s Labels

August 28, 2013 Sarah Coggins

It’s back to school time and that also means time to label all of your child’s belongings. Mabel’s Labels is a fun & easy way to do just that. Dylan is still in preschool, but we are labeling like crazy from his clothes to his nap mat.

Back to School with Mabel's Labels

A few of the summer camp activities he’s enjoyed the past couple months have included taking something extra to school. We’ve been using the personalized Sticky Labels to ID these – a flashlight for “camping out” day and a container with fruit to share during a lesson on gardening. For the fruit, I chose to send it in a plastic, inexpensive container we had on hand and smacked the label right on.

Mabel’s Labels are dishwasher & microwave safe as well as waterproof. After “fruit day,” the container came home and I tossed it straight into the dishwasher with the label on. When I pulled it out, the label looked as good as it did when I first put it on. Several more uses of the container; temperature change from sitting in the cabinet to storage in the refrigerator to washing & drying in the dishwasher. It still looks perfect.

And then, I had one more thought. This is a ‘junk’ container, but what if it wasn’t. Will the label remove ok? Remember, this is after weeks of use and dishwasher runs. I pulled at the corner and, sure enough, it peeled off easily and cleanly. You can’t tell where the label was. Nice!

I’m definitely pleased. If you’re looking for a fun & easy way to label your child’s belongings for back to school, Mabel’s Labels is the way to go.

Can’t decide on a single product? You don’t have to. Order the Ultimate Back-To-School Combo. It includes 40 Skinny-Minis, 50 Tag Mates, 16 Shoe Labels and 2 Teeny Tags.

Note: a set of 40 Personalize Sticky Labels were provided to me for review. The opinions expressed are strictly my own.
