I.D. Me Labels {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Once in a while I take my 3-year-old and almost-1-year-old to an indoor gymnastics gym during the "open play" time to let them run and bounce and climb and otherwise burn off energy with their friends. Big Sister E likes the huge trampolines and the multi-level bouncy house best, while Little Sister B is just happy to crawl over and under the various textured mats and low balance beams and whatever else she can get herself near enough to touch and pull up on.

They both always have a good time and we usually end up going home tired and content and ready for a nap. The only negative part of the outing comes from when I get a glimpse of the massive lost-and-found near the entrance to the gym.

With my obsessive issues over not losing items, just seeing the amount of things left there makes my palms sweat. This lost-and-found is large enough that it is separated into bins, one for shirts, one for socks, one for cups, etc, etc. I try not to look at it and think of the feelings those moms had when they got home and realized not all of their child's possessions came with them because it makes my heart race a little bit.

It also makes me want to stop every mom that comes in the door and tell them about I.D. Me Labels.

Specially laminated so that they're UVA-resistant, safe for both the microwave and the dishwasher and, in general, really bright and fun, I.D. Me Labels are perfect for preventing the loss of almost any item imaginable. From bottles to backpacks, bibs to cell phones, clothing to eyeglasses, these labels come in all sizes and colors and can be personalized to fit any need that may arise.

Speaking of personalization, I.D. Me Labels gives you options - LOTS of options. If you can't find one of the 10 fonts, 9 colors, 4 shapes/sizes and 60+ icons to select for their water-resistant All Purpose Icon Labels, then I'm not sure what you're looking for. No matter what you choose, your labels will come out unique and bright, the perfect way to make sure your child's items will be quickly recognized and returned to them at the end of the day at daycare, school or just at a friend's house.

For something even more distinctive, the Photo I.D. Me Labels are unlike any that I have seen before. As with the All Purpose Labels, you can select the font, color and shape/size of your labels but then simply upload a digital picture of your child and they will appear right on there. I love the idea of kids being able to help return belongings to each other by just looking at the picture to see the rightful owner.

Along with all of the great labels for children, I.D. Me Labels also has a line to be used in and around your house in order to help with organization. Whether identifying a bin of toys, a box of recipes or recycling containers, these labels will come in handy for anyone looking to manage or arrange items for the home.

The durability of all of I.D. Me Labels' products is apparent as soon as you see them in person. Not only are the labels that I received for Little Sister B bright, colorful and exactly the way I had ordered them, but they feel almost like soft sturdy vinyl with their flexibility.

I love being able to put one of these stickers on any item of hers that is going to leave the house and immediately increase its visibility (and style). The pink that I chose is vibrant, the star icon is cute but will not be outgrown and her name looks crisp and neat in the Guiddy Up font. Everything from Little Sister B's containers of cereal to her sippy cup will no longer have the chance of ending up in the vast wasteland of the lost-and-found at the gymnastics gym because with one look, it would easily be returned to us.

Her name is even cuter when someone like me hasn't hacked at the picture to remove it.

Whether you are labeling clothes, items in a classroom, shoes or are drawing attention to your child's allergy to nuts, I.D. Me Labels ship within 48 hours of your order, so you will hardly have to wait to begin. 48 hours for something to be custom-made to your specifications, where else can you find that?

Be sure to become a fan of I.D. Me Labels on Facebook to keep up with the latest news and deals! Thanks to the generosity of I.D. Me Labels, one person will get to design and own some of these great labels also, because...

I love the all-purpose icon labels. They seem like just the right thing to label all of the things I send to school with my two-year-old.

Heck, I think all the kids in her class need 'em! I can't begin to tell you how many things come home in my daughter's bag accidentally because they aren't labeled. I get tired of trying to return things to their rightful owners. At least if my daughter had the labels, the other parents wouldn't have the same issue with her things.
