Happy Rosh Hashanna from Oliverslabels.com!

Oliver's Labels wish you and your family a wonderful Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. From sunset on September 12 to nightfall on September 14 the Jewish people will be celebrating year 5768. Similar to the North American New Year, Jews reflect on the year that has past and make plans for a better year ahead. For those who observe Rosh Hashanah, no work is permitted on this holiday.

A ram's horn, called a Shofar, is blown like a trumpet in Temple.

Another practice is to eat apples dipped in honey which symbolizes the wish for a sweet new year.

May this new year bring you nothing but good health and true happiness!
All the best from our family to yours.

Swanky Moms writes about going back-to-school with Oliver's Labels!

We love Swanky Moms and our friend Heather just posted a great back-to-school article for all of her loyal readers. Here it is!

Back to School with Oliver’s Labels

Looking for a great way to keep track of "kid" stuff? Oliver's Labels are the perfect solution. Cute designs, high quality, easy to use, and they are the ONLY labels with a unique tracking system. If someone finds something with an Oliver's Label on it, they visit the web address on the label and type in the tracking number that is there as well. You will be notified via e-mail by Oliver's Labels and the person who found your item does not receive your personal info. Very cool! There are tons of designs to chose from. We have the "Outer Space" pattern and they are already on my son's pencils, markers, pencil case, and backpack (the bag tags are a MUST HAVE for back packs). Oliver's Labels also makes clothing labels. Don't let that favorite sweater become an item in the abyss of the school lost and found! Visit Oliver's Labels today and prepare your little ones with their "School Pack." Everything you need to keep track of clothes, shoes, back packs, lunch boxes, school supplies, and more! My son may get lost on the way to his new class, but at least his supplies will be safe and sound. (ha ha....)

School starts in a few days, but no need to worry, Oliver's Labels ship super fast!

Happy Labour Day from oliverslabels.com

Hello everyone,
We just want to wish a safe and fun Labour Day long-weekend to everyone!

Labour day is celebrated throughout the world. It originated from the Labour movement which expressed that workers should only have to work 8 hours per day, having 8 hours for recreation and 8 hours for rest. Most countries have their Labour Day in May but Canada and the US have been celebrating it on the first Monday of September since the late 1800's.

I feel that Labour Day is the symbolic marking of the end-of-summer and beginning of school. When I was younger, this holiday turned my tummy into a big nervous knot but now that I'm an adult, it's just another great long-weekend!

Good luck to all you kids out there beginning a new school year! Now's the time get your labels and bag tags so you can walk into class with style!

Photos added to Oliver's Labels Product pages

This week we finally added photos to most of our product pages. This was something I wanted to do for a while because I know that when I'm shopping online, I like to see what I'm getting! We also think that it helps give you ideas for where you can put your Oliver's Labels. We will have photos of every product very soon and will continue to add more to the ones already posted.
By the way, if you have a photo of you or your child using our products we would love to see it!
