olivers labels review
About the product: Oliver's Labels is a great label company that has waterproof labels in a variety of designs for your kids clothes, cups, bags, shoes, sport equipment, etc. They can even come with a found it code if you want. If you ever lose an item with a Found-it™ tracking system code, have no fear! When someone finds it they will be prompted to go to a special page on our website (see "A" in diagram below)with instructions to enter the code on the label (see "B" in diagram below). We then match you to your Found-it™ tracking system code and send you a notification email right away. Oliver’s Labels acts as an intermediary between you and the finder so you never have to share any of your personal information!
About oliver's labels written by the owner debbie:
Hello! I'm Debbie, owner of Oliver's Labels. Oliver, my sister Marla's son, is my inspiration for my business.
When Ollie was young, Marla lived in New York City with her husband. When I would come to visit, Marla and I would go exploring the city by foot, with Ollie in his stroller. Like any young child, Ollie just loved to wiggle out of his shoes and toss them out the side of the stroller. Fortunately, we would usually notice soon enough, retrace our steps, and find his tiny shoe somewhere on the sidewalk. I knew there would be a time when we would not be so lucky.
That's when I got the idea to make some simple, homemade labels with Ollie's name and phone number on them. I stuck them on his bottle, inside his shoes, and on anything else Ollie decided he was bringing with him that day.
One day when I was back in my hometown (Toronto, Canada), I got a very excited phone call from Marla. “You will never believe what happened!” she exclaimed. It turned out that as usual, on one of their excursions, Oliver had managed to maneuver out of one of his brand new Nike runners. Marla was so disappointed, having only discovered it missing once they got home. Later that day a woman from the Bronx called saying that she had found the shoe! The shoe was returned and I was so delighted that my labels worked! Marla was so delighted at having saved a $60 pair of shoes!
By the time that Oliver started daycare, attending class with 15 other children, I started thinking about my labels again. This time, I used my 6 years of experience in the printing industry to design a label that would be both waterproof and beautiful. I then came up with the Found-it Tracking System™ to avoid sharing personal information (like a phone number) with strangers. Marla put them on his water bottle, books, and of course his shoes. His stuff always comes home with him. His teachers appreciate the time they save, always knowing what belongings are his. And Ollie’s classmates' parents started to ask Marla where they could get these same labels, both for their own children, and as birthday gifts for their children’s friends.
And so, my business was born.
With Ollie as my inspiration, I bring you Oliver’s Labels! How kids’ stuff finds its way home!™
My review: I was excited to find out about Oliver's Labels because my son is always loosing his sweaters at school. He leaves them out on the playground or at lunch and then we have to go search through lost and found and a couple of times they haven't been there. With a label attached to the sweater it would have been hard for someone to mistake his sweater as there's. This hopefully won't happen again now that we have the labels. I got labels with just our last name, that way less information is on my childs things and I can use the labels for all of our family. Although if you want you can get labels for each family member with their name on it. I love that the labels are durable and waterproof. I keep my kids clothes when they grow out of them to use for my younger kids or to keep for possible future kids but in the meantime I will also lend out clothes to friends who have kids that could use the clothes. These labels are perfect for making sure I will get the clothes back that I lend out. I also really like the found it feature. I will hopefully never need it but chances are it will come in handy.
