4 Paws for Ability
We have a lot of animal lovers here at Mabel HQ! 4 Paws for Ability enriches the lives of children with disabilities by training and placing quality, task-trained service dogs. Lives are transformed because of this organization.
Hammer City Roller Girls
The Hammer City Roller Girls are an all female, not-for-profit, skater operated, flat track roller derby league based in Hamilton, Ontario. They’re sassy, fun and TOUGH ladies!
Kisses for Kaitlyn
This fund was created by Stacey, a self-proclaimed Fundraising Freakasaurus! Stacey is a cousin to a little princess named Kaitlyn who was diagnosed with Leukemia. We featured her efforts in detail here on the Mabelhood blog back in 2011.
Animal Crackers Preschool
Quite possibly the cutest name for a preschool, don’t you agree?
Optimist Twirling Connection
This twirling organization has been so successful; we imagine they have every single item labeled at practice and competitions!
We’re always coming up with new products at Mabel’s Labels but this one has us super excited for a couple of reasons. First, we’ve been experimenting with ‘do-it-yourself’ type labels for awhile but until now, the technology has always left us disappointed. We especially wanted to avoid the need for special markers since that compromises the whole ‘ease of use’ quality we insist on. After lots of tweaking and testing, we hit on the solution. “Write Away!” Labels™ are personalized by you with ANY permanent marker. Just write, seal, stick ‘n’ go! The self-lamination means they’re super durable and, just like our printed Sticky Labels, are waterproof, dishwasher and microwave safe, and UV resistant!
The other reason we’re excited is that this product allows us to offer our labels in retail stores for the very first time, meaning many of you really will be able to get your labels right away! Look for “Write Away!” Labels™ in the Stationery Department at Walmart Canada stores. They’re also available through our website under the ‘Sticky Labels’ tab. Choose from two fun themes, each featuring five of our most popular designs (30 labels per set).
However you get hold of them, please let us know what you think!
Since all our staffers are pretty good spellers, we have a retro “See’n Say Spelling Fun-Damentals” that could use a good home. Did we mention that it’s been a film prop in our Touch Activated Animal Sound Labels product launch video? Check it out at the 1:02 mark & 2:21 mark!
Getting nostalgic while playing with the “See’n Say”, we asked some of our staffers what their favorite childhood toys were & here’s what they said:
Our Designer, Ashley loved changing Baby Alive’s diaper!
Deanna & Ainsley in Customer Service enjoyed their Cabbage Patch Kids Dolls.
Production Manager, Mary-Ellen spent a lot of time with her Etch-A-Sketch.
Our Shipper, Paris still has his Pog collection!
