I’m ashamed to admit I got some personalized, waterproof labels to try out, from Oliver’s Labels, quite a while ago. My apologies to the company for taking so long to review them. The upside, however, is that we’ve also had quite a while to really test them out.
I put one on the tag of my daughter’s jacket and after many washes, it’s still in there. I also put one inside her backpack and one inside her sneaker and both are still there, as well. I think it’s safe to say that after months and months, their personalized name tags work great for school-aged kids and all the stuff they tend to lose.
What’s really unique, however, is that when you order your personalized labels, you can be assigned a code for Oliver’s Labels’ Found-It™ system and have that code printed on all your Oilver’s Labels along with a URL for finders of your lost things to go to and report that they found it. You are then notified via email that your item was found.
Best of all, Oliver’s Labels acts as an intermediary between you and the finder so you never have to share any of your personal information! Though we haven’t actually lost anything yet, I’m really impressed by the whole idea of the Find-It™ system.
