How to Get Your Kids Ready For Summer Camp

Posted on

Summer is almost here, which means your children are already jumping with joy at the thought of summer camp! Not only are summer camps great for children to build social skills and learn other abilities, but they’re also the perfect way to give parents a much-needed break after the long school year.

Yet, there are a few things parents need to do first in order to get their kids ready for summer camp. Here we will go over some important tasks to keep in mind as you prepare your children for their summer camp adventures:

Request a Must-Have List From the Camp

Most camps will provide parents with a packing list of essential items their child will need while away from home. Follow the list carefully and don’t forget to avoid things that the camp doesn’t allow, like video games or smartphones. Be sure to include all the important “stuff” like soap, shampoo, lots of clothes, masks, and swimming apparel.

Make a Doctor’s Appointment

Almost every summer camp will require your child to see a doctor prior to coming to camp, especially in today’s climate. They will also include medical forms that will need to be completed by a medical professional. Plan accordingly and schedule your appointment early to avoid last-minute rushing to the doctor’s office.

Label Everything

Every parent knows how kids are with their stuff. One trip to your child’s room, and you realize that, for the most part, kids are a mess! Now, imagine how chaotic and disorganized your child will be at camp, especially when surrounded by the articles of clothing and personal possessions of other kids.

Labels are essential to ensure your child knows exactly what items are his or hers and prevent the loss of water bottles, sports gear, clothing, and other things. Your child will also be able to better enjoy the camping experience without the fear of losing a favorite possession.

Sunblock, Sunblock, and More Sunblock

Being at summer camp means being outdoors a majority of the daytime hours. Sunblock is extremely important to avoid sunburns and potential damage to your child’s skin. It cannot be overstated that sunblock is an essential part of getting ready for summer camp. Granted, toiletries, soap, and other important items are vital for the camp experience, but remembering to pack sunblock and teaching your child how and when to apply it will ensure they don’t suffer from sunburn, which can spoil a lot of fun at summer camp.

Summer camp can be a great experience for children of all ages. By thoroughly preparing your child for summer camp, you are ensuring they experience an incredible adventure without the worry of forgetting something important.

The Perfect Labels for Handmade Items

Posted on

Whether creating new pieces for a boutique or making handmade garments for loved ones, custom woven labels offer the perfect final touch. Personalizing your handmade items with this charming add-on increases their value, and with numerous styles to choose from across lettering, colors, and icons, there’s sure to be a personalized option that works best for you! 

Distinguished Garments

Having a unique and captivating clothing label is important for small businesses because it helps to build brand recognition. A woven label with a distinct color combination or icon portrays a message of specialty with regards to the garments. This, in turn, sets them apart from competitors and enhances the value of the brand.  

Thoughtful Gifts 

For those who enjoy making handmade gifts for that special someone, attaching a specialized label adds a thoughtful finishing touch, letting the wearer know their garment was made with love. Labels can be used for clothing accessories like hats or scarves and even home decor, such as a custom-made towel set. Whether you need a smaller, more delicate sewing label or a larger, bolder design, there is a large range of size options to choose from at It’s Mine! Labels.  

Avoiding the Lost & Found

On a more practical level, custom labels are useful in preventing theft or loss of items and can even help with identification. Iron-on clothing labels are ideal for senior citizens, whether in a nursing home or senior living community, where items can get mixed up between residents. Having labels on all clothing will ensure the residents return with all of the items with which they entered. In an emergency situation, having a custom label with a telephone number inside the individual’s garment could assist emergency responders in getting in contact with the family too. Woven sewing labels are ideal for non-heat resistant fabrics, and can also be removed easily, when necessary. 

Likewise, kids clothing labels are an easy, convenient option for parents to help kids keep track of their clothing and other items when at school or away from home. Contrasting colors are recommended for this purpose, so the text is easily legible.  

Knowing that all labels from It’s Mine! Labels are high quality, with an extensive range of product offerings, there’s no reason not to label your items. Creativity is encouraged when creating your order, so contact us today!

Need Clothing Tags For Someone With Sensitive Skin? There Are Options.

Posted on

For those of us with sensitive skin, purchasing new apparel is always a bittersweet experience. As much as you love your new shirt, sweater, hoodie, or whatever garment it may be, you know you can’t wear it until you take a pair of scissors to the clothing tag. Only then will you find relief from the itchy or painful sensation that traditional clothing tags leave behind. To add insult to injury, some clothing tags have two, three, or even four layers!

Custom clothing tags are essential for brands, but are equally as important for identification, especially for older parents and children who rely on personalized tags to keep their belongings safe and organized.

The solution for those with sensitive skin who need to keep track of clothes is to replace the irritating brand label with a simple and smooth personalized tag.

Here at It’s Mine! Labels, we understand the importance of a high-quality comfortable clothing tags, and we have a few suggestions: 

  • Iron-On Satin Label: What makes our iron-on satin labels the top choice? They are thin, soft, attractive, and come with rounded corners that don’t prick. In fact, satin is a great material for those with sensitive skin or skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, etc. 
  • Iron-On Standard Label: Another alternative, the iron-on standard label, is also very smooth, has rounded corners, and will not irritate the skin. This option is great for general use. 
  • Iron-On Fun Label: Children always want a little pizzazz when it comes to their clothes. Enter the iron-on fun label — a super smooth and soft label that can be personalized with fun designs and colors. 
  • Iron-On Letter Transfers: For labels worn directly against the skin — socks, underwear, etc. — iron-on letter transfers are the best option. They transfer smoothly onto cotton and a variety of different smooth plain fabrics. 
  • Stick-On Fun Clothing Label: Pop one of these personalized labels onto the care label on the inside seam of a garment, and it won’t touch the neck or waistline! They are available in tons of different designs. 

For extra durability, you can sew the iron-on labels onto clothing with hypoallergenic thread or opt for our sew-on labels instead. These are perfect for fleece fabrics such as sweatshirts, jackets, knitted items, and more. 

Pro Tip: Consider putting your new personalized tag in a non-traditional spot, such as the hem,  if the neckline is an issue. 

We hope these tips will help you find relief from itchy or downright painful clothing tags. Contact It’s Mine! Labels, a leading maker of personalized fabric labels, to learn more.
