Label It With Kidecals

Back to School time is right around the corner. I like getting the supplies we have bought for back to school ready and organized with labels. Kidecals has lots of colourful personalized labels that are dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer safe. These labels stick to any surface and can be used on clothing, backpacks, toys, devices, and more.

Getting organized with DYMO and giveaway




I am glad I got this opportunity to introduce this new LabelManager 160 from DYMO to all of you.  This is a useful tool for me, as I like keeping things organized and easy to access.
I think once we are organized it is easy to keep the mess minimum, especially in a growing family as things start to accumulate faster :)
This Dymo LabelManager 160 is a portable handheld label maker, which helps us create professional personal mini-labels easily and quickly to organize everything around the home.


I like reusing and recycling containers to keep materials such as pencils, pens, markers etc.  Adding these labels make it clear what these containers are meant to hold, so children and adults can return it to the correct container after they are done.
I also label children's personal items for school and this makes my task neat.
It is easy and straightforward to use this label maker; even children will like making their own labels.  It would be a good idea to allow children to use only with permission and to keep it away from children :)





The handheld label maker has a computer style QWERTY keyboard, one-touch fast format keys for 6 different text sizes, 8 text styles, bold/ italics/ underline/ 4 boxes, 228 symbols/ clip art and vertical text.  It previews the layouts and effects on the LCD screen before printing.  This portable handheld label manager is compatible with Dymo D1 labels, which are 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" widths.  There are different coloured cartridges that we can use, however it only prints one colour label at a time. 
I wish it would print in multi-colours and also print clipart or downloadable images from the computer to Internet onto the labels.  It requires 6 AAA alkaline batteries.


This Dymo LabelManager 160 is available at Staples Advantage, Costco, Grand & Toy, Basics, Lyreco & Novexco throughout Canada for $34.99.


Giveaway

Please follow my twitter and Facebook, so you know when the winner is announced.
Update: The winner is Bree

Oliver's labels

Like many other parents, I also like to label belongings that I send with my children to school i.e. bag, shoes, lunch box etc... .





These cute waterproof labels from Oliver's label makes the job easier. The original and mini labels are perfect to put on to clean dry smooth surfaces i.e. lunch box and bottles.


Right and left feet shoe label can be placed on the dry insole of the shoes. Stickeez clothing labels are easy to place on clothing without ironing or sewing by sticking it on to the care-tag of the clothes.


The labels are made with strong permanent adhesives, and should only be handled by adults and not by children. Although the labels won't feel strong it will firmly bond to smooth clean surfaces.

I like the ease of using these customed labels. I placed the original and mini labels on my daughter's school belongings i.e. lunch box, water bottle, pencil case, pencil and scissors. The labels were easy to put on all these different surfaces.

My favourite is the shoe label. I was able to put it easily on the insole of my daughter's shoes, so she can identify her shoes when they are among the shoes of her school friends. My daughter loves it, she felt it was cool and special; I am sure she showed it off to her friends :)

I also like the range of designs they have. Both my children wanted to choose the car design, which is really cute. I tried using a permenant marker on the label which didn't work because the labels are waterproof.

We have an option to put a Found it™ tracking system on the labels so the lost belonging can be returned to the owner. Check out the lovely designs and the variety of packages Oliver's labels offer. Order these labels online or call 1-800-398-2060.
