  • How many characters can I use for my personalization?

    We can print whatever you tell us to. However, please use the label previewer to get an idea of how your labels will turn out. The more characters you use, the smaller the letters will be in order to fit in the available space.

    How long does it take to receive my order of Durable Labels?

    Durable Labels require 4-6 business days for shipment to you or to store. Deliveries via Xpresspost will arrive in 2-4 business days.

    Can I split the pack into two names?

    Unfortunately, we are unable to split a pack into two names. However, some of our other customers with multiple children get their labels printed with just their last name so everyone in the house can use them.

    Can I get all of my labels with just one image? For example, just the train image from the Transportation theme?

    Sorry, your labels will be printed with all the images in the theme.

    How durable are Oliver's Labels?

    Our beautiful products are made from high-performance, waterproof, and scuff-proof materials that have been tested to be durable in a huge range of environments. Our sticky labels can be used on items that go in the dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and outdoors. Our clothing labels are easy to apply and can be thrown into the washing machine and dryer.

    Will I get a receipt for my purchase?

    After your payment is successfully processed, we automatically send a receipt with order confirmation to the email address you provided in your account profile.

    What’s the difference between Iron-on Clothing Labels and Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels?

    Our Iron-on Clothing Labels can be applied anywhere on the clothing with your iron. Our Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels perform optimally on the ‘care-tag’ of your clothing and doesn’t require any ironing or sewing!

    Should I get Iron-on Clothing Labels or Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels?

    We recommend Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels if a lot of your clothes have ‘care-tags’. Otherwise, our Iron-on Clothing Labels will go on both tagged on non-tagged clothing so you can use them everywhere.

    Can Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels be stuck into clothing without a label?

    We recommend applying Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels to the ‘care-tag’ of your garments for optimal performance. If you find that most of you clothing do not have ‘care-tags’, we would suggest going with Iron-on Clothing Labels as they will go on both tagged on non-tagged clothing.

    Are your Iron-on Clothing Labels or Stick-eez ™ Clothing Labels removable once my child outgrows their clothes?

    Our Iron-on Clothing Labels are designed to be permanent so they cannot be removed. Our Stick-eez™ Clothing Labels are durable enough to stay on through the laundry yet removable when needed. In both cases, you can always stick a new label right on top if the item is being handed down.

    Are your Original/Mini Labels removable once my child outgrows their sippy cups?

    Our Original and Mini labels are designed with a permanent adhesive but you can peel them up if needed. As with any sticky label, it might leave some residue behind. Alternatively, you can stick a new label right on top.

    The previewer isn’t showing/ the previewer doesn’t look right…

    Unfortunately, the previewer is not always perfect in showing exactly how your labels will turn out. Rest assured that our designers look at each and every set of labels to make your labels look their very best.

    Can I pick up my order from your location?

    Absolutely! Our products are available for pick-up at any Staples store across Canada.

    Do I need to update you if I move so my Found-it™ information can be updated?

    Fortunately, your Found-it™ code only needs your email address for us to contact you if someone finds your lost item. Please inform us if your email address has changed.

    Are your sticky labels vinyl?

    Yes! Since November 2007 we perfected our top-secret method of printing full-color graphics on vinyl (When we first started OliversLabels.com, our labels were made of polyester). Our labels are completely waterproof and incredibly durable. In fact, we guarantee that our printing will never rub off.

    I see a “My shopping cart” and “My label basket”, what does this mean?

    The “My label basket” will apply and show only Oliver’s labels products you have saved to cart.
