Awhile back I was looking for some custom labels for our kid’s gear and discovered Kidecals! I had a chance to checkout their site, and was intrigued about just how durable their products would be. With an almost 3 year old, we have found that he tends to misplace things and his stuff takes quite a beating. Not that he is carrying around high dollar items, but it’s great to know that if he leaves his cup at school, we can probably get it back. For his “uck” as he calls it, we were using a sharpie marker on the bottom, but after a few washes we would need to start the entire process all over again.
We actually have quite a bit of gear come to think about it.. Between lunch boxes, cups, “blankies”, favorite toys, and more, there are actually quite a few things that could benefit from a label. We figured we would give Kidecals a shot but didn’t quite know what to order. Since the Mrs. is generally the one that keeps remarking all of our gear (due to the much better handwriting), I figured she should be the one to place the order. She had different sizes, designs and all sorts of choices to choose from! Cute little pigs, boats, and all sorts of designs were available. It turns out that they do all of their own designs in-house and Kidecals has put lots of effort into making their labels unique, colorful and pretty cool!
After a few days, I almost forgot all about the labels until they arrived via mail in a stiff sided mailer. Since I actually didn’t do the ordering, it was actually quite a surprise to open up the package to see what she purchased. It turns out she bought the Mega Combo Pack. I saw the receipt and thought that $36 was a bit steep. Until I actually got a chance to check out the Kidecals that is! There were a variety of label sizes and shapes but they all had the same basic design, our son’s name and my wife’s phone number. She could of ordered special designs, but she just opted for a basic label.)Doing the math they were around $.38 each and came with free shipping. Could Kidecals really be worth it?
That night when the kiddos went to sleep, we feverishly scavenged around the house in search of everything that we wanted to stick a label on. I swear there is now no mistaking my little guy’s lunchbox, cup, sandwich container, spoons, forks, and anything else that goes to school with him.
The first day the Kidecals were all still in place. So far so good, but how would they hold up in the dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer? As it turns out, very well! We have put his lunch items through the dishwasher time and time again and the Kidecals are still in place without discoloring, fading, or smearing! It turns out that Kidecals are waterproof and stick to almost anything! We are now a month or so into using them and we are still on the original Kiddecals!
The durability of Kidecals is unmatched from any other labels I have encountered! I was skeptical at first, but now more than a month later, I realize they are worth every penny! We still have quite a few to use and anticipate that the labels will actually outlast many of the items they are stuck to. Overall, we have found Kidecals to be an outstanding value! With so many different designs available, they would make a great gift and can be used for kiddos or adults alike! You can order in smaller quantity to save some cash as packages start off at $21, but the mega combo pack offers the best value and variety.
Special Note: I apologize for all the blurred out photos, but I wanted showcase the product without posting our personal information across the web.
