Kids often lose things, or loan things to their friends, and then they don't get returned. One solution is to use custom bookplates and book labels to increase the chance of getting these items back.
What exactly is a bookplate? Well, they're a label affixed to a book which denotes whose property it is. They've been used for centuries, and old ones are now collector's items and have lots of personal history.
These book labels I'm recommending aren't old or vintage though. They're modern, and made to label kids' stuff.
What I like about these personalized labels, from Mabel's Labels, is that they're cute, and they easily stick on most surfaces since they're peel and stick.
This makes them a good not only for labeling the inside or outside of books, but also other items such as jewel cases of CDs, or DVD or video game cases.
There are over 40 different designs to choose from, so you're sure to find one your kids will love. (You can see a small screen shot below of the choices available to get an idea of the fun designs.)
Plus, I like that when you order them you type directly into the order form the information you want on all the labels, so it is cutomized and personalized for your child.
That means you don't have to write on each label, and worry about smears, or illegibility. Instead, it really is as simple as peeling and sticking!
