Cheapest place to buy Mabel's labels type stickers?

Getting ready for the start of the school year, and the general need to have their sports equipment and belongings labeled, can anyone recommend the best place to order Mabel label type labels.

Thanks

Staples?
Olivers

The cheapest is just a black permanent marker. Or you want to be cheap and fancy, white hockey tape and permanent marker.

I hear you on doing it non the cheap, but I would like it to be aesthetically pleasing.

Costco has an e-certificate $38.99 for $50 worth in labels from Mabel's Labels Costco Mabel's Labels

You don't need to have a Costco membership to purchase from their website.

Yes, Costco!

The above post is what I was going to suggest, that's how i bought mine. I wasn't going to spend quite that much, but couldn't pass up the Costco offer...and their name won't change (at least for a while, if ever) so they are pretty much good for their entire childhood (lots of things I never though about until I had a kid and started worrying about her losing stuff...daycare, camp, schools, sports, the list goes on). They are amazing too..I put one on each of her Contigo water bottles last September, they were washed several times a week in the dishwasher and none of them have budged.

Lovable labels are much cheaper and you can easily find a 10% off code.
I buy slimline labels - not the fancy multi packs. They are $10 for 40 labels.

I second Oliver's Labels from Staples website. Good quality, lasts forever, fast delivery, cuter designs than Mabel's. Look for promo codes online.

Mabel cost way too much, can't you find them in the dollar store?

PS. I usually do one name tag for name and get a VIP name tag that says "ph/text xxx-xxx-xxxx" with my ph# which I put on really important things because my kids lose things EVERYWHERE

With all due respect, who cares if labels are aesthetically pleasing? Half the time its not something you look at. If you're just labelling clothes, use a sharpie on the tag. Nobody sees that stuff anyways.

We do have Mabel's Labels though which we use on 'higher end stuff' (back of phones, winter jackets, boots...) we manage to get them on sale enough that they never seem to cost much. I also put on my phone number too - and have managed to get stuff back that way! Having just a name is pretty useless IMO.
