Use a cute photo of your child on a photo label to identify their lunch sack and other school snacks, supplies and notebooks. It will be so easy for them to find what’s theirs, and other kids will easily know who it belongs to, too. This can be done for children as young as two who are going to pre-school. They don’t even need to know how to read! Just be sure it’s a super cute photo. It will make them famous!

Brown paper lunch sacks are simple and easy to use. Have your child decorate a dozen (or however many you like) with homemade vegetable stamps. Each day they can bring their lunch to school in a bag not only decorated by them but also with their own photo I.D. label.

Of course, you can use these photo I.D. labels on more than just lunch sacks. Books and papers, pencils and pens, etc. And your child’s cute drawings can be “signed” with these photo labels, too.

For high school graduates on the way to college:
• “Property of” labels to identify their items in the refrigerator and cabinets.
Bookplates for their books.
• Use paper “return address” labels (non-removable) on electronic devices; instead of mailing address, put phone number and email address. They’ll be stacking the deck of luck in their favor, anyway.

You will need:
A high-resolution, high quality photo of the child. To get the best result, use a photo with high contrast, a very simple background (not busy), and make sure the features are clearly lit and not in shadow.
