Project 365 // Day 316 v2.0
I was asked a while back, a long while back in fact, to give some labels a test run and share my thoughts. I agreed and then sorta dropped the ball.
The labels are from a site called Applied Labels. And they are in a word fantastic. While their site prominently features the labels in use on baby bottle and similar applications I don’t have any of those around anymore. I don’t doubt for a minute that the labels would be perfect for baby bottles or labeling other day care type usage, I found some other uses for them that worked great.
The photo above, if you can’t place it, is of a RipStik. It’s sorta like a skate board with only two wheels. My oldest son has one and loves it. I put a label from Applied Labels on it this spring. It’s not going to keep anybody from swiping it, but if my boy is at a friends house and there are a few RipStiks lying around (which is probable) when he goes to leave, he has no problem finding his ride in a flash.
The only difference was they were a half size apart.
I put labels in one of the boy’s shoes and identifying them instantly went from headache to piece of cake. What’s more the label stuck around well past the point where the shoe was still in use. Even after they were left out in the back yard for many days straight.
These things don’t fall off. Remember the RipStik use? That RipStik has been sitting outside in the elements for months and months. The label looks like I put it on yesterday!
I have also used the labels on Wii Remotes, iPods and reusable school lunch bags. These things don’t quit. They are waterproof, dishwasher safe and generally kid resistant.
Check them out, they are really useful.
If I hadn’t procrastinated so brutally I would have a promotional code to offer, but it’s expired. It’s been (hanging head in shame) almost a year since Heather from Applied Labels first contacted me.
Swing on by, dream up how you might use them and give them a go. You can also find them on Facebook.
