Epson LabelWorks Iron-On Kit: Take Ordinary to Extraordinary™
Christine received a sample from Epson for her review.
It’s fun & easy to create great looking iron-on labels using the LabelWorks Iron-on Kit from Epson. The handy kit includes a LabelWorks LW-300 printer, 2 iron-on tape cartridges, and an application guide — everything needed to create personalized iron-on labels for school items, uniforms, sports jerseys, and more.
Labels are easy to customize using a wide variety of fonts, symbols, and frames. The durable, machine-washable, iron-on labels can be cut to size and applied to almost any fabric in just a few seconds. The included carrying case neatly stores the LW-300 printer, two 12mm tape cartridges, six AAA-sized batteries (not included), and an optional AC adapter (not included).
I am a huge fan of organization, so much so that a co-worker gave me a small label maker for my birthday gift years ago. At the time I remember thinking that it was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received- seriously. I have used that label maker many times, but have unfortunately run out of things that require a label in my home, or at work.
Although I do love labels and organization, I am NOT a fan of labeling any of my girls’ belongings with their names in any place visible. I do not want strangers to read their names and speak to either of them as if they know them. We are having the stranger danger conversations with A in preparation for starting Kindergarten in the fall. Someone she doesn’t know calling her by name would be a confusing thing to figure how to deal with.
Up until now I used a black permanent pen to label items- coats, maternity clothes lent out, backpacks, etc. It looks a bit sloppy, but it gets the job done. But hello- now there is amazing, legible, cute, customizable & safe alternative to permanent pens & custom embroidery. The Epson LabelWorks Iron-On Kit is easy to use, and the labels are simple to iron-on with a household iron.
A and I spent some time together picking out two of her belongings that could use a label- she decided on her backpack and coat. She looked through the manual and decided on the font, size & border for her labels. After reading the directions and playing around for a few minutes I easily figured out how to customize her labels. She was so pleased with the labels that she made one for one of her friends at school to have.
With one daughter starting Kindergarten in the fall and another starting daycare I am so happy to have the Epson LabelWorks Iron-On Kit to quickly & easily label their belongings. At around $70 for the kit it is an investment, but for the cost of replacing a few lost coats or backpacks it is worth it. I am looking forward to using this label maker for coats, backpacks, lunch bags, sports equipment & school items for years to come.
The Epson LabelWorks Iron-On Kit (MSRP $69.99) is available at Amazon.com and Epson.com.
