We are deep into summer vacation mode in our house and, as I watch my boys rapidly grow out of clothes and shoes, my mind quickly wanders towards back to school. The need for new shoes, clothing, backpacks and school supplies looms as the summer quickly passes us by. Back to school can be a costly time of year in most homes, especially if you have more than one school-aged child.
As I prepare for my middle son to enter Kindergarten this year, what weighs on my mind as I open my wallet is “How long will it be before he loses these?” I have been lucky thus far in the two years my oldest son has been in school, we have only had to go lost and found diving a few times, as he is very aware of following the rules. My middle son, on the other hand, is a wild child. He lives his life by his own rules and is easily distracted. I feel he will be the child leaving his jacket in the school yard.
This year we will be using Stick 2 Me kids labels in hopes that even if my son leaves something behind it will quickly get back to him.
These labels were created by a mother of two, Annie Nadeau. Being a busy mother herself, she quickly realized the need to identify her children’s belongings and Stick 2 Me was born. Some of the things that make this proudly Canadian company stand out to me are the fact that Annie herself creates the illustrations for these beautifully designed collections, and the company’s commitment to the environment. With this in mind, they have reduced their paper consumption at the source by avoiding over-packaging when shipping their orders. These daily activities will help leave a healthier planet to our children.
“I personally illustrated the colourful, lively collections. I love drawing images inspired by my children’s universe. I’ve used state-of-the-art technology with superior quality inks to reproduce my drawings with precision. I hope my designs will draw you into my imaginary world and will bring you as much joy as they did me when I created them.” -Stick 2 Me Founder, Annie Nadeau
Stick 2 Me offers 12 different design collections which include a complete set of 200 assorted labels. This package is ideal for school or day care, identifying clothing, shoes, pencils, dishes and many other objects. There is also a clothing set available, which includes 200 assorted regular and iron-on labels so that you can conveniently label all clothing items, from head to toe.
As you prepare for back to school this year I am sure that your goal will be the same as mine, keeping your children’s items out of the lost and found pile. So why not support a Canadian Mompreneur while protecting the items that you spent your hard earned money on.
