Oliver’s Labels School Package Review

Brandy

Last year I spent an hour or more organizing and labelling my son’s school supplies.

This year, Oliver’s Labels made this daunting and dreadful task super quick and easy!

When I was asked if I would like to try out Oliver’s Labels, I immediately jumped at the chance! I had heard many great things about this company and wanted to be part of their back to school promotion.

The school package contains:
20 x Original Labels
30 x Mini Labels
6 x Shoe Labels
35 x Stick-eez Clothing Labels
1 x Large Bag Tag
3 x Mini Bag Tags

When ordering your package, you can choose from a variety of cute and fun designs. I decided to go with the sports design as my son is a big sports fanatic.

Oliver's Labels Sports Design

My son took one look at the labels when they arrived and smiled. I knew I had picked the right design!

The next step in placing your order is to personalize the labels. I chose to put my son’s first and last name on each label. However, using your surname is optional. We live in a small community so I did not mind adding my son’s last name to his labels.

Then, you must decide if you want to add the Found-It feature to your labels. This is what makes Oliver’s Labels so fantastic!

The Found-It system is an exclusive feature to Oliver’s Labels. It is a FREE online lost-and-found system. When you choose to add the Found-It feature, Oliver’s Labels adds a special Found-It tracking system code to your labels (however, be aware that it is not available on all products due to size limitations).

Oliver's Labels Found It Feature

The Found-It code is linked to your email address. If your child loses one of their school items, the person who finds it can go to the Oliver’s Labels website address on the label, input the nine-digit Found-It code, and an email will be sent to you notifying you that the item has been found!

How cool is that?!

You can also select different designs for different label types. So, if you want the sports theme for your original labels but want superheroes for your mini labels, you can do that! You can change your design for each label if you wish.

Finally, you indicate the quantity of packages you would like to receive and send your order to your shopping cart!

Last night I gathered my son’s school supplies, grabbed my package of Oliver’s Labels and went to work. I started with my son’s new backpack and added the large bag tag. Then, I began labelling his glue sticks, erasers, pencil boxes, pencil crayons and markers (I labelled the boxes not each individual crayon and marker) and then, his pencils (which I did label individually).

Now, last year I had a difficult time with labelling the pencils (and there are 30 of them). This year, it was as easy as peeling off a sticker and rubbing it onto the top side of the pencil (near the eraser)! Such a time saver!

The instructions indicate to avoid touching the sticky side of the labels when applying them but I found it almost inevitable (or maybe it is just my clumsy fingers that made that part difficult). Further, when applying the labels make sure to press down firmly to make sure the labels form a strong bond to the item you are labelling. The instructions indicate to wait at least four hours before washing.

I am looking forward to seeing these labels in action. The labels are made of vinyl and I have been told that they are extremely durable. So much so that Oliver’s Labels guarantees that the printing will never rub off! The labels are also waterproof. So, you can stick your labelled items in the washing machine, dishwasher, and even in the microwave, fridge and freezer.
