I had heard of Oliver's Labels in the past, and was dying to try them. Lucky for me, Jennifer Saarinen, agent for Oliver's Labels, offered to let me review some of the products she sells! Jennifer explained Oliver's Labels like this, "Oliver's Labels are the cute and practical way to identify all your family's belongings and help keep them out of the 'lost-and-never-found' pile. [They are] the best kids labels out there! They are cute, colorful and durable. Great for use on everything your child can drop, throw, lose or leave behind. Our waterproof labels and tags are made of high-performance, scuff-proof materials and are dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer safe. Customize and preview your labels instantly with your name and choice of over 30 colorful design themes." I think she's spot-on, with this description. Let me guide you through my experience with these great products.


First, let me highlight the most important features I have found about Oliver's Labels products:

One of the most important features found ONLY at Oliver's Labels is the FREE Found-it™ Lost-and-Found system.
  • Found-it™ is Oliver's Labels exclusive, FREE online Lost-and-Found system.
  • We give you the option of printing a Found-it™ tracking system code on your labels. This unique code connects you to your item via your email address.
  • If you ever lose an item with a Found-it™ tracking system code, have no fear! When someone finds it they will be prompted to go to a special page on our website (see ""A"" in diagram) with instructions to enter the code on the label (see ""B"" in diagram). We then match you to your Found-it™ tracking system code and send you a notification email right away. Oliver’s Labels acts as an intermediary between you and the finder so you never have to share any of your personal information!

They offer various label packages, like the Starter Package I received. Great for back to school are the Preschool and School Packages.

The Preschool Package Includes:
20 x Original Labels
14 x Shoe Labels
35 x Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels
1 x Large Bag Tag



The School Package Includes:
20 x Original Labels
30 x Mini Labels
6 x Shoe Labels
35 x Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels
1 x Large Bag Tag
3 x Mini Bag Tags


You can even create your own custom package!

Oliver's Labels offers FREE shipping to Canada and the US with purchases over $30!

Since I have wanted to try out their products, I was really excited when Jennifer Saarinen, agent for Oliver's Labels, offered to let me review some of the products she sells. I was given the Starter Package to review. The package contains 20 Original Labels, 35 Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels and 3 Mini Bag Tags.



First, I tried out the Original Labels. I knew I wanted to put these on some of my daughter's dishware, like her cups and snack catchers. My children stay home with me, but these labels would be so great for any child who attends daycare, school, or goes away to a babysitter or grandparent's house. The labels stay on good and tight, are dishwasher safe, and separate your child's belongings apart from everyone else's. Don't forget Sunday School and Church daycare, either. My daughter's dishware will no longer be confused with the other kids' items!


As you can see, I was a little worried about how the labels would attach to my daughter's cups. The bases of the cups aren't wide enough to work with the length of the stickers, and the cups have no flat surfaces up the sides. They are oddly shaped for putting on a sticker. But to my surprise, the Original Oliver's Labels fit like a glove!

I simply followed the directions to carefully peel the sticker off its backing, taking care not to touch the sticky side very much, and then I placed it on the cup. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the label had a certain amount of stretch to it, which made it almost morph into the shape of the cup. I waited the minimum 4 hours before washing to ensure a good adhesion, then washed them in the dishwasher. They came out looking like new!

Next, I tried out one of the Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels on a favorite dress of my daughter's. These labels would be great for other things too, like winter jackets or backpacks. The instructions had me attach it to the clothing tag, and then wait a minimum of 4 hours before washing, just like the Original Labels. And as I fully assumed, the labeled dress came out of the washing machine and dryer with no signs of it coming off of the garment tag.

Another great thing about the Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels is that they aren't just for clothing! If you have other items you'd like to label that are too small for the Original Labels, the Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels are perfect, because of their petite size! And because they're also waterproof, you can use them in the same capacity as the Original Labels.

Finally, I took one of the adorable Mini Bag Tags, which comes with its own strong silver ball-chain loops for attaching, and placed it on my daughter's Bible Cover. The other two will be great for backpacks, bags, suitcases and many other items.

One other great thing about my Oliver's Labels experience was getting to choose all the designs and the fonts for my order. I have covered over all but her first name on the labels in my photos for privacy, but I had her first and last name on every label's top line, followed by my cell phone number on the second line. I also took advantage of the FREE Found-it™ Lost-and-Found system, to give a finder the ability to alert me privately, through an email alert. You could have just one line for a first name, or even a first name on top and last name on bottom. The possibilities are endless!

Be sure to check out Oliver's Labels by Jennifer for all your labeling needs! And don't forget to add Jennifer Saarinen as your agent's name on the checkout page when placing an order!

Jennifer was wonderful to work with. She is sweet and kind, and it is obvious that she really loves representing Oliver's Labels. She was proud to let me know in an email that her company's customer service is second-to-none. She wrote, "Wow!!!! I placed the order 6 hours ago and the order has shipped already. We have the best customer service:)"

Here, Jennifer tells us a little bit about herself.
"My name is Jennifer. I'm a stay at home, homeschooling mom of 2 girls. While looking for opportunities to earn some money from home to help my wonderful husband with the bills I found Oliver's labels and immediately fell in love with their products. I was very excited to join the company as an agent and share their fantastic products with other parents."
