Oliver's Labels Review

Some of the label design choices
I recently had the opportunity to try out Oliver's Labels. Oliver's Labels offers a variety of label types and sizes (from original labels to photo labels, bag tags, iron-on labels and wristbands and even customizable pantry labels) and over 35 design options (including allergy warning labels). 

The labels are waterproof, weather-proof, scuff-proof, tear-resistant, high-performance vinyl with super-strong 3M adhesive and high quality, full-color printing. The labels are dishwasher safe- I tested one of our labels on a glass that has now been through the pots and pans cycle with sani-rinse numerous times. They are also washer and dryer safe.

Most of the picture designs are pretty cute. (Maybe a little too cute.) I also found that many of the background designs are so busy and bold that they make the type on the labels hard to read. However, all labels are customizable with five font choices and they also offer a "Custom Color/Font" option with many different color choices, so there is something for even those who do not care for a cutesy cartoon design. 

My favorite thing about Oliver's Labels is the FREE  Found-it™Tracking System feature. You may choose to have a tracking code printed on your  labels. If someone finds an item with a  Found-it™ label, they are prompted to go to and enter the code that is printed on the label. They can then enter the item description, information for retrieving the item and their contact info(optional). Oliver's Labels then sends you an email letting you know your item was found. None of your personal information is shared with the person who found the item.  

You can buy each label type separately, or choose a package deal. Just to give you an idea, the cost for 40 original labels (2" x 3/4") is $19.99. The starter package contains 20 Original labels, 35 Stick-eez Clothing labels, and 3 Mini Bag Tags for $26.99. Of course, there are many other options to choose from. Now, I'm not a huge labeler, but I think that these are very good quality labels, and that the Found-it™ feature is a great thing for things like our water bottles and other items that are easily misplaced! 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
