Applied Labels Review

There are a variety of permanent labels available on the Internet. Each company offers something innovative and exclusive. How is this company different? They stick to "simple" and it's working great for them.

When I received a label pack from Applied Labels, I was very confused. The package consisted of two sheets of mini labels with my little guy's name, a sheet of white labels and a sheet of clear labels. I had to read the brochure to find out what those are for. Turns out that the clear ones are called "Shoe Shields". They are to be applied on top of the regular labels when applying them to shoes thus preventing any damage to the labels. The other white empty labels are "Clothing Backers". The labels themselves are bigger than clothing tags and to cover the excess stickiness, you have to stick another label to the back of the original label. 

I think the process for labeling clothing tags with Applied Labels is a bit too complicated. You have to align two labels and seal them perfectly and then you are left with excess label parts on the clothing tag, which are possibly going to scratch the neck area. However, Applied Labels do offer special "Tag-A-Long" clothing labels that fit more comfortably on the clothing tag.

I applied a label to Michael's sippy cup to see how it would hold up. Even though Applied Labels are very simple looking, I think the cup looks cute! I honestly can't wait to ship my baby off to Day care :D I'll be labeling everything he owns! Shoes, bottles, dishes, stationery, clothes, toys, etc.
