My son headed back to “real” preschool this week. What’s the difference between “real” and “not real” preschool you might ask? Well, the program he’s been in all summer has been more of a camp setting. Preschool beginning this week focuses on learning. Summer was a lot of fun, but they’ve been closed three days to prepare for the school year, and we even had an open house for the teachers and kids to all meet each other. He’s very excited about school.
I came home with a stack of papers, and noticed that I had about 14 hours to find a spare set of clothes and label them for his cubbie at school. He had one set of clothes, but needed two sets – and the other set wasn’t well labeled (I wrote his name on a tag and you can barely see it.) I also needed to label his blankets. I don’t always send the same blanket with him for the week, and kids often misplace items, so I really needed to get on my game for this school year.
Enter the Epson LabelWorks kit.
A few weeks ago – before all of the travels wreaked havoc on my spare time – I received an Epson LabelWorks machine. It’s a dream machine. I can make custom ribbon AND iron-on labels. Best of all, it took just a few minutes to create and print labels for clothes (and his blanket). I think it took longer for my iron to heat up. (It took seconds to adhere the labels to the shirt and shorts.) Also, it appears to be sold out on Epson’s site, but you can also find it on Amazon.
The machine has different fonts and fun characters you can add to your labels.
I took it to work when I saw the blue/gold ribbon cartridge. I made a Mars Hill University ribbon sample to show someone what we could do – and it’s so impressive! It prints in seconds, and you can make the ribbon longer if you want to use it to tie on gifts (or hair, or whatever else you may tie with ribbon.) It’s a lot of fun, and I have a lot of ideas how I’m going to use this kit (so don’t think this is the last time you’ll see the kit on this blog!)
Now for the fun part, for YOU! I’m giving one away! Check out the Rafflecopter below and enter – I’ll select a winner on August 28
What would you want to label with the Epson LabelWorks kit? I want to label ALL of my son’s clothes and anything that leaves the house! I also want to make ribbons for every scrapbook project.
