For us, school begins again at the end of August. Although I have most of the supplies on the lists the teachers had sent home in the Spring, I still feel like I have lots more to do. One thing I can check off my list is labeling everything for our three children. It is a requirement to label pretty much anything that goes into school.
For the Fall 2012 school year, Label-Land sent us 2 personalized metal bag tags for each child and 40 classic white waterproof labels per child. The bag tags are customized on the front with the design and text of your choice and have the Label-Land logo on the back. Our children were each able to choose the design they liked best. Our daughter chose the Cupcakes design and both our boys chose the Green Camouflage. All the bag tags come with a ball chain and easily attach just about anywhere. For our 5-1/2 year old twins, I hung the bag tags where they would be easily visible. For our 8-1/2 year old son, I attached it where it was detectable, but could be tucked inside the front pocket of his backpack. These metal tags seem to be lightweight, but strong, and should hold up well to everyday normal use for more than one school year. The Label-Land bag tags are priced at 2 for $12.99, 5 for $23.99, and 10 for $39.99.

Here are some examples of what I used the different sizes of white waterproof stickers to label. They worked well both on the vinyl interior of my older son's lunchbox and on the textured canvas-like exterior of the twins' lunchboxes.
I also used these labels inside my children's shoes, on their poly folders, and on their reusable water bottles.
I was pleased that these waterproof labels stayed put even after multiple washes in the dishwasher. These labels are also microwave-safe, but I have not tested them out in the microwave. The 40 assorted size labels are priced at $14.99 for 1 sheet, $24.99 for 2 sheets, $33.99 for 3 sheets, and $39.99 for 4 sheets.
In addition to personalized bag tags and classic white waterproof labels, Label-Land also offers iron-on clothing labels and two different sizes of colorfully designed waterproof labels. You can view all their products by visiting www.label-land.com. The bag tags and stickers would be perfect for use at school, at summer camp, and for giving as stocking stuffers.
Thank you to Label-Land for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon.
