My son accused me of going a little sticker crazy on his back to school supplies. It’s actually a very fair observation. I really liked the tiny name labels that we got this year. They are great for the little items that get left behind. I even have plans to use them on my son’s ties that I find in the lost and found. For machine washable items, you just peel and stick them firmly on the tag. It’s not suggested to put them directly onto fabric.
All the personalized labels have unique designs by independent artists. They are durable and a fun way to customize kid’s bottles, food containers, toys, sports equipment, clothing (care tags), and much more. They are made from non-toxic materials and they are dishwasher and laundry safe. There are endless notebook designs as well. Our school requires a steno type notebook to write down homework assignments. The journal is perfect.
Check out Minted for a wide selection of back to school products. The website is easy to use and labels are simple to personalize. The text and colors of the labels can be edited to your liking. My kids like to sit down with me and pick out their favorite labels and we design them together.
Are you planning to take obligatory back to school pics with your child holding a sign stating their grade and the date? I have a quick tip…have them hold a blank sign and add the text later. That way you don’t have to scramble to redo the sign for each child to hold, all while trying to get them to their first day of school on time. I like to use www.picmonkey.com to add text to photos.
