Applied Labels Review




I got the opportunity to review Applied Labels, the dishwasher and laundry safe labels for kids and babies!

You can check them out for yourself at http://www.appliedlabels.com/, or on twitter at www.twitter.com/applied labels, and on facebook at http://facebook.com/pages/applied-labels-LLC/57280604120.

They are all over the place! But they are a great product! Here is what they have to say:

The sleek, clean, sharp, classic alternative to labels that shout. Our extraordinarily tough labels are dishwasher & laundry safe. Award Winning Products. Lead, BPA & DEHP Free. Made in the USA!

BETTER ADHESION
Our labels have twice the adhesive strength of most labels. It is so strong that it is classified as permanent. The labels can be removed but it takes deliberate action. That means your labels should stay put until you want them removed.

BETTER PRINTING TECHNOLOGY & INK
We use a proprietary print technology to produce durable, long-lasting labels that easily withstand harsh environments (such as your dishwasher). The image is permanently affixed onto the label, providing a durable, robust marking. This simply means that the ink won't wash off.

BETTER RESOLUTION
We use high resolution, professional grade print technology to produce sharp, crisp images.

BETTER INNOVATION
We provide a simple, quick method to label clothing with tags that does not require any sewing or ironing onto the fabric or marking the fabric with ink.

BETTER QUALITY CONTROL & SHIPPING
Our labels are 100% inspected. We typically print and ship within one to two business days so you get your labels quickly. Any rare exceptions to our shipping policy will always be posted. We will also send you both order and shipping confirmations.

BETTER EXPERIENCE & TECHNOLOGY BASE
Applied Labels LLC was founded by a degreed Chemical Engineer and mother of two. She was a key engineer in charge of labeling for a leading aerospace company and has put her experience with cutting edge technology to work for you.

BETTER MATERIAL SELECTION
We have given careful consideration to the selection of the label materials. Superior materials yield labels that offer unsurpassed performance. Basically, these labels are tough.

BETTER SAFETY PROMISE AND MATERIALS KNOWLEDGE
We promise to always screen our materials for safety of use. Applied Labels LLC restricts the use of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) / polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants, Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEPH) and Bisphenol (BPA) in all of our products. We also had an independent, third-party laboratory test our Applied LabelsTM and Baby TapesTM for six banned phthalates and heavy metals. We met or exceeded all government standards. We care about performance but always put safety first. This is our promise to you.

MY TAKE:

It was really neat...they let me choose what type of font and picture I would like. Since I have so many kids, I didn't want one kid getting their own label, so I had them do "The Fillemans" with a cross on it. Forgive the juice spill in the picture...Major had just had some orange juice before I took it....I thought about wiping it off...but the OJ gives you the reality that I HAVE used the labels! :-)


Anyway, I thought they looked beautiful and I have used them in clothes, shoes, sippy cups, books....I went a little crazy with labels! :-) But it was SO fun! Anyway...in your package they send you clothing backers and shoe shields to insure that those particular labesl stay PUT! Like I said before you pick your font and your icon...and of course the name on the label. Then they make sure you know what you're doing by sending you a "how to" brochure.

I have to say, I was a bit skeptical...I have tried labels before and none worked...but these labels made it through the laundry, they made it through the dishwasher and my children's smelly feet. MULTIPLE TIMES! They didn't fray, fall off, or look like they have been on there forever. They are on there...and aren't coming off! UNLESS of course you want them too. And when you want them to, they don't wrip and leave that sticky mess behind. The only reason I know this is that my three year old likes to sit and pick on things when he is in front of the tv...sometimes his nose...sometimes his fingers...but this particular day he picked at the label on this sippy cup and it came off with a little effot on his part. It came off clean and unwripped. You may think it must be easy to get them off then. Well..yes and no. If you want them off, they'll come off...but like I said, the laundry, the dishwasher, etc....nothing takes them off...except a three year old who has experience picking! :-)

All in all, I really was happy about how well they worked. I will be passing applied labels name around to my friends who have small children and need to label things for travel, or when they go to Sunday School, etc. They are very handy little doodads!
