The labels are very cute. They prominently feature the child's name, along with an attractive "No Dairy" (or "No Wheat" or what have you) icon. They are easy to read and feature Oliver's Labels' Found It (TM) lost-and-found system, which enables people who find your lost item to help return it to you using the website and a nine-digit code on the label.
I like the lost-and-found option, and I like the clear graphics and the allergy images. I think these would be good for use where you might use ID labels. But for my child's desk, and EpiPen cases and other important locations, I want allergy alert tags that are red and attention-grabbing. I am afraid people might overlook the graphic and/or think it denotes a food preference rather than a serious allergy.

Have a great vacation!
Those are great. I wonder if they offer labels for multiple allergies?ReplyDelete
Thanks for the info!
What cute labels!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful vacation, I hope for lots of sunshine and good times!
I am going to have to check them out and will pass the word along. Miss A started preschool this week and thank goodness she is in the class with the other allergy kids as they enforce a strict policy on no sharing food and no bringing food that others are allergic to (peanuts).ReplyDelete
We have had 2 allergic reactions with both girls in the last 2 weeks, both where I think it was cross contamination with equipment versus actual allergy to ingredients. When will they learn to write that stuff on labels? Makes me crazy.
The label doesn't look like it wouldn't help those who need to identify multiple food allergies (for example, my daughter's allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, and tree nuts - doesn't look like they could fit all that on their label and keep with the same graphics/layout).ReplyDelete
I am glad people are offering these things, but, like you, I prefer brightly-colored, attention-grabbing labels. I make labels for my daughter using neon-colored stickers and bold black lettering.
Maybe I'll order some to denote my food preferences. "No Mustard."ReplyDelete
Very cute. I'm with you - I want obvious labels too. Which is why her medic alert bracelet is just plain silver - nothing "pretty".ReplyDelete
I'm really going to try to order some of those this week. They are cute and informative.ReplyDelete
Great promotion. I love the "found" feature and the fact that they are returned while still keeping your identity confidential. Great labels!ReplyDelete
Oh, they're cute! But if your kid had a LOT of allergies, she/he'll be needing a lot more stickers!ReplyDelete

Hi! This is Debbie from Oliver's Labels. We read all the valuable feedback and comments and it prompted us to launch our newest design - a bright red "FOOD ALLERGIES" icon. It's perfect for kids with multiple allergies and it's an attention-grabbing stop sign shape. (http://www.oliverslabels.com/Designs/Products.aspx?DesignID=38)ReplyDelete
