Before you become a parent you make so many promises to yourself about all of the things you’re going to do or not do. Well, one of my bazillion promises to myself was that all of my kids’ stuff would be neatly labelled and we would never lose anything. Of course, life happens and out comes the Sharpie. When we send our kids’ treasured belongings into the daycare abyss we really need some way to identify our sons’ Blue Jays hat from the fifty others hanging in the hallway. I kept meaning to order labels but never got around to it. Of course, after finding out about Stick 2 Me labels, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to receive a set of labels in exchange for my honest opinion.
I hopped over the Stick 2 Me website to take a look at what they had to offer; I was so delighted by the beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and couldn’t wait to try them. All of the sets are so charming that I really had trouble choosing a design. Even the font choices are all lovely, making the decision even more difficult. My son is a huge fan of trucks so I settled on the truck collection with the Lifesavers font. The labels arrived in just a few days and I got sticking immediately. The instructions were printed on the enclosure and were simple and straightforward.
Just a few of the beautiful designs available
Stick 2 Me Item and Dishware Labels
My son has just started participating in show and tell at daycare and we’ve already had his beloved Toby train go MIA for a couple of weeks… we’ve learned our lesson and realize we need to label everything! My son loves to peel stickers so I let him know these ones are special and not to be touched… I think/hope he heard me. His show and tell item last week was one of his favorite books. I used one of the triangle item stickers; it looked great and the book and the sticker came home unscathed. The dishware stickers are also very durable. We don’t use a dishwasher but I’ve already washed the dishware in hot soapy water several times with the labels looking good as new.
Stick 2 Me Shoe and Clothing Labels
Next up were shoes. It’s the middle of summer and his sandals are already sticky and sweaty. Of course the shoes should be clean and dry before applying the stickers, but I decided to try them anyway and hope for the best. Surprisingly one stayed on, even through a wash cycle. I’m not sure if the other came off by itself or had a little help from my son… like I said, he’s a peeler. Either way, I was happy that even one stayed on, although I’ll be applying to clean dry shoes in future. The clothing stickers, both the stick-on and iron-on, are very impressive. They came out of the washer and drier looking perfect.
Overall I love this product! It seems there are several companies out there offering similar products in terms of application and price point. But where I think Stick 2 Me really shine is in their design. The illustrations are just so adorable. I hope the illustrator expands to more products because these images should be showcased!
I will definitely be ordering a set to use on my daughter’s belongings too. There are so many stickers in a set that it will be a while before I have to purchase more labels for my son but when I do I will definitely be reordering from Stick 2 Me.
How about you? Have you used Stick 2 Me labels? Which design did you choose?
