For most of us in the Philippines, it’s that time of year when we buy school supplies and wrap books in plastic cover. Ever the procrastinator, I just got the kids school stuff yesterday. And we haven’t started wrapping books yet.
I got this Dymo LetraTag from National Book Store a couple of years ago. I don’t remember the price. It’s such a nifty gadget to have at home. I’ve been able to label kitchen containers, storage shelves and school supplies. All these years I’ve had this, I didn’t know that it had the ability to print on iron-on labels!
I was so happy to have found this roll of iron-on tape in National Book Store. I never knew it existed. I had wondered where I could order iron-on labels and now I can actually make my own! One roll is something like P495 or a bit less.
I spent the night putting name labels on each of my daughters’ uniforms. Now that Lily is going to be in Sophia’s school, we have to deal with identical uniforms for both girls. Iron-on labels will help the kids and the yayas sort out who owns what. The labels appear to be stuck securely on to the fabric. Let’s see if the labels live through the hundreds of washes in one school year. I hope it survives.
Every year I order waterproof sticker labels from iStickers. They’re more fun than the Dymo labels. The kids really like using them. I reserve the Dymo for the serious stuff like books and folders. But lunch boxes, water bottles, pens and other things get iStickers.
