Prior to discovering companies such as Mabel's Labels, I used a permanent marker to write my kids' names on their clothing, bags, and other belongings. A messy, unreliable, and rather temporary solution - it turned out permanent markers did not always survive close encounters with the dishwasher, washer and drier. And trying to fit a name on the tiny clothing tags was a pain!
I first saw Mabel's Labels products online, and fell in love with their cute designs. Mabel's Labels is a Canadian company, founded by moms who were frustrated by the amount of stuff that left their houses, never to return. Sounds sooo familiar! So they decided to create fun and durable labels for the stuff kids lose.
Mabel's Labels are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe. The labels are customized with a child’s name, favorite mix of colors and an icon (animal, symbol, etc.). The company's product line also includes personalized stationery products, ID wristbands and household labels.
I was excited to try Mabel's Labels newest addition - the LOL (Label Out Loud) labels! Gotta love the clever name. The LOL labels come in packs of 45, and are relatively large at 2-3/4" x 5/8". You can choose from 20 fabulous designs, each in beautiful color combinations. I customized them with my kids' names and a butterfly design.
In addition to the LOL labels, we received some tag-mates. These are smaller labels that fit perfectly on clothing care tags. They stick securely, and survived numerous washes. These labels can also be customized with a name up to 20 characters and an icon, and come in raspberry or blue.
Needless to say, I have retired the permanent marker as a labeling tool and plan to use Mabel's Labels from now on.
