IDmyStuff® for the Holidays
by MaverickLabel.com | December 05, 2019
Looking for Great Stocking Stuffers?
It’s that time of year again. Over the few weeks, will you be racking your brain, trying to come up with a small stocking stuffer, Hanukkah present, or Secret Santa gift that hasn’t been done to death? Consider a set of our personalized ID labels, either IDmyStuff® or Club-Valet®. For only $9.95, you get 24 (Club-Valet) or 29 (IDmyStuff) labels. Free shipping to US addresses is a bonus; addresses outside the US are sent for a flat rate of $4.95.
What You Get
Whether you order IDmyStuff or Club-Valet labels, the sets:
- Are waterproof, fade resistant, dishwasher and microwave safe.
- Work for indoor or outdoor use.
- Contain up to three lines of text, with space for an optional gift message on each sheet.
- Have volume discounts. 3 or more sets are 20% off; 10 or more are 30% off - so get a set for everyone on your list and save! (Pro Tip: If you decide to order 10 or more, make a list of what each set will say before you start to order, and check off each one as you add it to your cart, to help keep track.)
There are a few differences between them.
IDmyStuff® labels come in 12 different colors: black, blue, red, apple green, dark green, purple, orange, lavender, hot pink, or teal with white text, or bright yellow or white with black text. A set contains 29 labels in three different sizes: 7 large (2 1/2” x 1/2”), 16 medium (1 7/8” x 3/8”), and 6 slim (3 7/16” x 3/16”).
We have a set of labels specifically for golf enthusiasts, sized just right for golf clubs and gear. Our Club-Valet® labels are available in black with gold or silver lettering or in gold or silver with black lettering. Each set consists of 24 labels in two different sizes (16 at 2 1/8" x 1/2”, and 8 at 2 3/16" x 3/8").
Lots of Uses
Everyone can use a set of these personalized ID labels - they’re great in the office, dorm, or school, at the gym; really anywhere stuff can get lost or accidentally mixed up with someone else’s. Tagging equipment and other items can help lost property be returned more quickly, especially with our highly visible, glossy label colors.
Giving your children the same or similar games or equipment for the holidays? Tag those things with their names as soon as they come out of the wrapping paper and eliminate the "that's mine ... no, it's mine" arguments right from the start!
Boarding the dog while you're celebrating elsewhere? Get some labels with Fido’s name and your contact info to tag his bowls, leash, collar, food and treat supplies, etc. Slap a IDmyStuff® label on that “Do Not Remove” tag on his dog bed. The kennel will appreciate it.
Having a big family pot-luck? Label your serving platters and plastic containers before mixing them in with everyone else’s. Both our IDmyStuff® and Club-Valet® labels are safe for use in microwaves and dishwashers - so regardless of whether things need to be reheated or the hosts are kind enough to wash your platter before returning it to you, the labels should be in place and readable.
And at $9.95 per set, they’re not out of the question as a present for Mom or Dad from Junior, either.
Have Some Fun With It
Get creative with the three lines of text - we like reading those here in the shop! Most people use some combination of individual or company name, plus a phone number and email. Some include directions, like “Please text me” or “Leave at Pro Shop.”
A couple of fun customers have offered a beer for the return of the tagged item, though, and one promised a reward and good karma. There have been callouts to the Brewers and the Patriots (where are the fans of other sports teams?).
I like these three cute labels for their personality (names, numbers, and expletives sanitized for everyone’s protection).
HELP! I'm lost for reals y'all Please call my person, First Name Her # is: Phone Number I'm lost, sad and lonely, please return me to First & Last Name Phone NumberFirst & Last Name, Phone Number If you are reading this, I've lost my [expletive] club! Thanks
You can also use IDmyStuff® labels as gift or product tags or as small notices. These can be almost like haikus:
Sparklingberries lotion by First Name Enjoy your luxurious cream Thank you sincerely, First NamePlease return me in the same condition I was given to you: - CLEAN - FULL TANK
Add a Little Something Extra
Our IDmyStuff® and Club-Valet® programs are limited to Western languages that use the Latin alphabet (English, French, Spanish, German, etc.), and only plain text can be printed, no images or logos, no bolding or italicizing. You can use up to 30 characters, including spaces, per line. But if you want to add a little fun to your labels, you can use standard keyboard characters to enliven them. (Just remember that on the smaller labels, the font is small, too, so don’t go overboard.)
IDmyStuff® and Club-Valet® labels adhere best to smooth items that are flat or gently curved (think water bottles) with metal, plastic, wooden or paper surfaces. We don't recommend them for use on clothing, fabric, or heavily textured or angular surfaces, as they may not stick to these surfaces as well.
