Review: Oliver’s Labels

Friday, March 20, 2009

You know I love free stuff.  And how could I resist free stuff when it’s a company with an awesome name?!
I am now a big fan of Oliver’s Labels.  Here’s why:

  1. My oldest son is named Oliver. Henceforth anything also named Oliver is the best thing ever.
  2. Labels are a necessary tool in fighting the battle against lost sippy cups, mittens, shoes, etc., — particuarly important when you have two kids in daycare.
  3. Oliver’s Labels have really bright designs – my Oliver loves the ones that he got.  He knows it says his name, he knows it’s a train, and that’s what makes him happy.
  4. They have a ‘Found It’ feature so that if your item is REALLY lost, as in, if someone has picked up you kids’ sweater in a park somewhere, if they are nice and try to find you, they can do it through the Oliver’s Labels website.  Typing in a code will enable them to contact you by email.
  5. They are Canadian – well, in Toronto actually.
  6. They were really super nice to give me a little trial pack that is already being well used on cups, shoes and coats.
  7. I really REALLY like the Stick-eez clothing labels, because who the hell has time to iron or sew on a label? (not this lazy lady)

Cool.  I’m happy with these.
