Mabel's Labels was founded in 2002 by four moms who were frustrated by the amount of stuff that left their homes never to be returned so they did some research and testing and created the perfect labels for the stuff kids lose! Mabel's Labels personalized labels are laundry, dishwasher and microwave safe and are UV resistant. Mabel's Labels are manufactured in Canada and sold online and through fundraising programs at schools, daycares, camps, and other organizations. When you choose to fund raise with Mabel's Labels, you'll not only receive unbeatable products but you'll also receive a 20% commission with no no mark-ups, as well as dedicated staff support. Their fundraisers are also eco-friendly and participants can shop at regular prices through a special URL, thereby saving trees and other resources. They also offer an Affiliate Program which is great for family, mommy, education, home, design, style, and gift websites, as well as other related blogs.
I received the Ultimate Back-to-School Combo from Mabel's Labels for review. This combo pack includes 40 Skinny-Minis, 50 Tag Mates, 16 Shoe Labels, and 2 Teeny Tags. The Skinny-Minis are ideal for school supplies such as rulers, pens/pencils, binders/folders, crayon boxes, glue sticks, etc. My niece is just turned 8 years old so I stuck a Skinny-Mini tag on the outside of her birthday bag and it peeled off easily and firmly stuck to the bag. Teeny Tags are small metal tags that attach to backpack zips, pencil cases, sports bags, lunch bags, coats, etc. Tag Mates stick to clothing care tags and Shoe Labels stick to the inside of footwear. My niece cannot even feel that the Shoe Labels are in her shoes. Shoe Labels are great to have in shoes when the kids are playing at parties, especially parties where bouncy houses are involved and they just pile their shoes on top of each other. With Shoe Labels, there's no doubt who the shoes belong to. Tag Mates are great, especially if you have more than one kid of the same sex. They make doing laundry a little bit easier, which is always a plus. They are also great if your child often participates in sleepovers. My niece just loves these cute little labels and will find tons of things to stick them on.
I also received a pack of Book Labels which are not only stylish but quite versatile as well. They are not just for books but also help identify DVDs, video games, etc. We will be able to use these when we loan out our DVDs or my son loans out his video games. This way, there will be no question as to whether or not someone has borrowed a DVD or game from us, ensuring we actually get it returned back to us.
The Ultimate Back-to-School Combo is only available until September 28th but other Mabel's Labels products and combo packs such as The Big Kaboodle, Loot Bag Combo, and The Basic Kit are available anytime. Right now there is an Early Bird Special on all Back-to-School products at Mabel's Labels until July 31st.
