Now that my son is in school, I have so many things to label with his name. His lunchbox, backpack, jackets, shoes and so much more need labels so that when he inevitably loses them, they won't be lost forever. I tried some sticky labels from the store and they either didn't stick or stuck halfway and just didn't work quite right. Plus, they weren't cute at all. Luckily, I've found the solution and the new labels I'm using are absolutely fantastic.

Whether you are labeling school supplies, daycare supplies, baby bottles, dance shoes or anything else you can think of, Applied Labels is a brilliant place to get your labels. Applied Labels are washable, dishwasher safe, water-proof labels used to label anything you need.

The labels from Applied Labels have twice the adhesion of most labels; so strong that it's classified as permanent. Once you label something, it's not going to fall off during wear and play. The printing used by Applied Labels ensures a print that won't rub off or fade or wash away and the images printed are crisp and not pixelated. I love that they are so easy to apply and I don't have to mess with sewing or ironing on labels. Applied Labels have been tested and are free of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) / polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants, Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEPH) and Bisphenol (BPA). These are labels used on kid things and safe to use on kid things.

Applied Labels come in different fonts, are totally customizable and available with adorable little icons. For my son, I opted for his full name in the Cutie font with the skull and crossbones icon. I love them! So does he. I must also say that my husband and I were absolutely impressed by the clear backings that come with these labels. For me, that right there fully sets them apart from other labels I've used.

I definitely recommend Applied Labels for anything you need to label. I love knowing that the labels I put on my son's belongings will remain there until I want them off and they won't fade as he wears and uses the items that are labeled. I think that a set of labels from Applied Labels would make a great addition to a baby shower or new baby gift. I also think they'd make a great gift for your favorite teacher this holiday season.
