Around this time last year I made this post featuring Stuck on You Labels. I purchased a set of these plastic name labels in the little bird design for my daughter. The set is on sale right now for $14.95 for 50 labels, which I think would actually last you for a few years! I stuck them on her water bottle, lunchbox, sandwich and snack containers, and communication folder. A year later the labels still look like new. The water bottle and lunch box containers went through regular cycles in the dishwasher a few times a week and the labels stayed on, but are removed easily leaving no reside when you want to peel them off. I am actually very impressed with the amount of wear and tear they can withstand. In comparison, a permanent marker on a plastic container lasted only a few washes in the dishwasher before disappearing.
Seeing the quality of the product, I will definitely be purchasing a few more things from the company like this tag for a backpack, these shoe labels for indoor school shoes and these clothing labels for coats and jackets. If you have more then one child and plan on handing down clothes/shoes, getting just the last name printed on labels is a good idea!
