I worked in childcare for several years before starting this blogging gig! Towards the end of those years, I started seeing these nifty labels making their way into school on my students belongings.
Personalized, dishwasher safe labels on sippy cups, on sandwich containers, on bottles. Personalized, sweat proof stickers inside shoes (my personal favorite, putting 12 different kid’s shoes on after naptime is surprisingly difficult if you forget which pair belongs to whom!) and on clothing. I knew I wanted some of these stickers, but I didn’t know where I would find them!
I was recently able to review some of these labels from Applied Labels, and let me tell you…they sure live up to the hype!
About Applied Labels:
Applied Labels was built out of necessity by a mom named Heather Clements, who just wanted baby bottle labels that wouldn’t wash off her baby’s bottles in just a few washes. She soon realized her dream and started Applied Labels with the help of her husband Patrick. The company has grown exponentially since then and they now offer a variety of products.
Applied Labels LLC offers the most unique and versatile personalized labeling solutions available. Once applied, our dishwasher and laundry-safe ultra durable labels will stay on all year long. Applied Labels™ have twice the adhesive strength of most labels and use a proprietary print technology to produce durable, long-lasting labels that easily withstand harsh environments, such as a dishwasher.
All of Applied Labels LLC’s products are lead, BPA and DEHP Free. Applied Labels LLC’s products were tested by an independent, third-party laboratory and were found to meet or exceeded all government standards.
Here are just a few of the products they currently have available:
I was able to review their labels and have them customized with my daughter’s name, a cute ladybug and the font of my choosing. I chose to get the labels made with my daughter’s name, since my son is now old enough to claim his personal possessions pretty well. However, when I received the labels, I realized maybe I should have gotten some for him too. The possibilities with these labels are endless! You can pretty much put them on anything. With the shoe shields, you can stick them in all of your child’s shoes and never worry about them losing a pair again. Or you can use the clothing backers to affix them to uniforms and jackets, items that often make up the Lost & Found closets at schools all over the world.
Applied Labels products live up to their promise. They are high quality, durable and best of all they are fun!
You can purchase Applied Labels on their website. They even have combo packs AND special packs specifically for childcare settings. I encourage you to go take a look.
