Here at Little Lake County, we love Mabel’s Labels, and have been happy to spread the word about their amazing label products that last despite all the wear and tear kids provide to their gear. Most often, we think of the Mabel’s Labels products to label back to school backpacks, shoes and coats, as Loralie reviewed in this post back in August. But Mabel’s Labels are great for another use, labeling sports equipment. My family is a sports family, with kids participating in basketball, gymnastics, and travel soccer. That means various gear, including uniforms, shoes, and most importantly, water bottles.
Mabel’s Labels recently launched a personalized program with the NHL to help team members designate gear and prevent the spread of germs. Mabel’s Labels donated personalized peel-and-stick labels to 30 NHL teams to label their sports gear and water bottles. Health and safety is a top priority for Mabel’s Labels, and using personalized labels helps prevent the spread of infectious disease through water droplets on both water bottles and gear.
In addition, the labels are extremely useful in helping our young athletes to keep track of all their gear on the bench. My husband has coached many teams, and after nearly every game, there is a water bottle, backpack or some other type of gear left behind. By using the durable Mabel’s Labels, gear can be quickly and easily identified and returned to it’s owner.
Mabel’s Labels sent me a personalized Hockey Combo, which includes 21 Equipment Labels; 3 Stick Labels; 2 Skate Labels; and 2 Number Labels. I was able to personalize it with name, number and colors to match our team. Although I don’t have a hockey player in my house, the labels are great for other team sports too. I will be using them to label all of my son’s travel soccer gear. The colors look great and my son was so excited to have an easy way to keep track of his stuff. Equipment labels are UV Resistant and laundry safe, so you can label your jerseys and practice gear and wash them without losing the label. Stick Labels, Skate Labels and Number Labels are waterproof, sweat proof and UV resistant. The Combo comes in a choice of 30 NHL inspired colors, for $16.99 and is available at Mabel’s Labels.
