I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mabel’s Labels. I received a voucher to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Little Miss is heading to camp by herself this year. At nine years old, she is sure she’s ready (and we did a test run as a family last summer), and I’m doing my best to get there. Fortunately, Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack is helping make the physical part of my preparation just a little bit easier.
My biggest problem when I was a kid going to camp was not bringing back everything I started with. Oh, I had the best of intentions, but that sweatshirt somehow disappeared. None of my socks ever made it back with a mate. And yes, I even “misplaced” shoes somehow. My poor mom.
She quickly learned to sew my name into every item that went to camp, but I remember it being a pain. I’m not up for that hassle, and my sewing skills are even less than my mom’s, but fortunately Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack is here to rescue me.
I’ve been a fan of Mabel’s Labels for years. They do a fantastic job creating labels that stay where you put them, even after you’ve washed them, whether that be in the dishwasher or the clothes washer. While some are iron on, my favorite are the stickers because it’s one less layer of complexity I need to deal with at the last minute when I realize that there’s just one more thing I forgot to pack.
The Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack stickers are so much fun. For $39.95, you receive 10 Personalized Name Stickers: 70mm x 16mm (2-3/4″ x 5/8″), 24 Mini Custom Name Stickers: 38mm x 8mm (1-1/2″ x 5/16″), 8 Custom Shoe Stickers: 33mm (1.3″), 50 Tag Mates™ Stick On Clothing Labels: 21mm x 10mm (13/16″ x 3/8″), and 2 Personalized Bag Tags: 57mm x 32mm (2-1/4″ x 1-1/4″). As a bonus (while supplies last), you’ll also receive five camp postcards. I plan to send mine with Little Miss so she can share all the adventures she’s having each day up at Spanish camp.
As with everything Mabel’s Labels, the Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack is customizable to fit your kids’ personality. That means they’re excited about these labels rather than trying to hide them (like I did mine). I showed Little Miss all 76 of the options (in both multicolor and solid options), and she – not surprisingly – chose the monkey.
There are two types of designs. The multi-colored ones have a preset color scheme. The multi-color monkeys Little Miss chose have fun bananas on a green background for her bag tags and the shoes stickers. The others come in orange for the clothing labels and a variation on the green and bananas theme for the name stickers and mini name stickers. She fell in love on the spot.
With the color options, you have five color schemes to choose from, ranging from beach day to princess to ocean that again can fit your child’s personality. We had so much fun looking through the options together and debating which one she really, truly liked best.
And yes, of course you can choose your font, as well, from among four different choices. The script can be a little hard to read, depending on the letters you choose for your personalization, but classic, rounded, and modern again give a little flair to your child’s special Mabel’s Labels Camp Label pack.
Standard shipping is free, and they arrive within 6-12 business days. Mine arrived on the early side of that window, and we have plenty of time to apply them before Little Miss heads off to camp. I’ve already tested them going through the wash, and they worked perfectly. I couldn’t tell a difference in the quality of the name tag before or after the wash – and Mabel’s Labels are 100% guaranteed, which gives me confidence that maybe this year Little Miss will bring home the right items. Or that at least the camp will know who to contact when they sort through their lost and found! I need her shoes to come back, although it wouldn’t shock me if the labels lasted longer than her shoes!
The limited edition Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack is perfect for clothes, swim gear, backpacks, shoes, toiletries, and more. Given the fact that we’ve lost four swimsuits just at our community pool (how, I have no idea) in the past couple years, I’m applying these to her suits and towels now in the hopes that I don’t have to make another expensive and unnecessary purchase because something has disappeared. Our towels are the same as many others who are at our community pool, so labeling ours can definitely help alleviate some confusion. Would you believe me if I told you a kid tried to walk off with our towels last year? It was only because his mom finally realized that they didn’t bring those towels that day that I wasn’t down two towels.
