CLIFTON PARK, N.Y., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As parents, there's nothing more frustrating than getting that dreaded call from your child at summer camp saying, "Mom, Dad, I lost my stuff." But with the dozens of things kids need for camp, inevitably, they get mixed up with other kids' camp gear. Labeling items like clothes, sleeping bags, flashlights, toiletries and other camp necessities with personalized, waterproof camp labels provides an easy solution for parents and campers alike. Name Bubbles' award-winning, waterproof press-and-stick personalized labels are perfect for labeling summer camp gear, daycare items, school supplies and much more.

"We just introduced some great new label options, perfect for school-aged children heading to summer camp this year, featuring all new icons, styles, colors and even a black and white line that parallels the  season's top trends and street fashion," said Michelle Brandriss, founder and CEO of Name Bubbles. "Our customers can't get enough of our fun new designs."

New kids label designs and icons
Name Bubbles labels for summer camp are available in a variety of styles, colors, and icons to match individual personalities and fit gear of all shapes and sizes. Some brand new style features include:

  • Camo, Cross Bones, Flower Girl, Plaid and Under the Sea styles
  • New owl, tennis racket or sailboat icons, among more than 70 other icons now available
  • New black and white line,  including 11 different styles; great for trend-setting kids of all ages, with looks ranging from cute to cool

With more than 45 color palettes to choose from, all name label designs can be customized online to perfectly fit any personal style.

A summer camp solution for parents and kids
From sneakers to expensive sports equipment, Name Bubbles offers the right solution to keep kids organized and prevent items from ending up lost or accidently in another child's bag. Kids and parents can personalize their labels online at and select the waterproof label style that best meets their needs. Name Bubbles Summer Camp Labels:

  • Come in a convenient Value Pack that includes a variety of laundry and dishwasher-safe labels
  • Are waterproof and weatherproof
  • Are resistant to bug repellent, sun block and fading

The Camp Pack also includes contact labels that allow room for personal information, such as a phone number and email for big-ticket items.

"Sending your kids to camp is an investment, and that only gets compounded when kids lose their gear. When personal items go missing, camp can become frustrating, when it should really be about learning and having fun. Name Bubbles provides a reliable solution for keeping campers organized and prepared," Brandriss said. "One of the biggest things we hear from summer camp organizers is the importance of labeling everything you send with your kids, down to their pillow, toothbrush and water bottle. Name Bubbles are a fun, easy solution to labeling camp gear – and provide parents with more confidence that their kids' gear is going to come home safely."

Calling out medical conditions
Name Bubbles also offers Medical and Allergy Alert Labels, which become critically important when kids are at camp under the supervision of adults and counselors who may not know about their unique needs. From nut allergies and gluten-free needs to health conditions like asthma or diabetes, it's critical that kids' personal belongings are adequately labeled with emergency contact information and detailed instructions of what to do should such a situation arise.

Brandriss became passionate about the critical importance of labeling gear after her son was diagnosed with a life-threatening nut allergy a few years ago. "My own reality with my son's nut allergy really drove me to create a solution for parents in similar situations as me – nervous but wanting to be prepared and organized," Brandriss said. "All of my son's camp and school supplies are labeled, including information on his nut allergy. I can't be with him around-the-clock, especially when he's at camp, but ensuring others are in-the-know about his situation gives me peace of mind."

The Name Bubbles Camp Labels Pack features more than 100 labels of all shapes and sizes for $38.88, with personalization included. The pack contains labels for shoes, clothes, water bottles, sports equipment and much more. Several other Value Packs are available, including the popular Share Pack, perfect for families with multiple kids, which allows up to six personalized names per order.
