Let Mabel’s Labels Mark Your Things for Back to School

I’ve been a big Mabel’s Labels fan for years, and I was delighted that a coupon for an Ultimate Back-to-School Combo kit appeared in my Scout Box from the Savvy Sassy Moms Product Scouts Program. I still have a few labels left from the last order I placed a few years ago, but those adorable designs were starting to be declared “not cool enough” by my oh-so-cool 8- and 10-year-old boys.


I was happy to see that Mabel has updated her design choices. The tools help you narrow down what you are going to have printed on ALL THE THINGS in the combo pack:

  • 40 Mini Custom Name Stickers: 38mm x 8mm (1-1/2″ x 5/16″)
  • 50 Tag Mates™ Stick On Clothing Labels: 21mm x 10mm (13/16″ x 3/8″)
  • 16 Custom Shoe Stickers: 33mm (1.3″)
  • 2 Personalized Mini Tags: 30mm x 20mm (1-1/4″ x 3/4″)

You definitely want to pick the right colors, design, and text. And since there are only 4 font choices, you will not be paralyzed by indecision…for as long. Here’s what I picked:

mabels labels back to schoolI slapped these labels on backpacks, lunch bags, sweatshirts, bicycles, scooters, helmets, notebooks, scissors, and anything else that went out the door in the first week of school. I keep the very compact folio of many unused labels in the junk drawer near our kitchen, because for us school seems to pick up speed slowly. We are still getting requests for supplies, or the supplies I ordered come in a little bit at a time, so on any given morning there is something I have to slap a label on.

Plus now that I have widened our focus to our last name instead of the kids’ initials, I can use this one pack for both kids, plus Mom and Dad, too. Not that we often have to label our own stuff, but you never know!
