Family Labels

Tired of sending James to school with a lunchbox that has Susan's name on it? (I bet it bugs James!) Next label order, simply order your family name on the labels instead of first names.

It will still be as effectiveyour kids will be able to easily find and keep track of their own stuffplus, it gives you the opportunity to hand those objects down to siblings, without the "but it says JAMES' on it!" challenge.
