    Avery labels are my favorite part of the dreaded paperwork that ensues my work desk, home, and church office. Being able to see at a glance what in in a folder, box, or spice jar makes my life much easier. Having five children ranging from 7th grade to 2nd year college…I need easier. I also need fun. My favorite fun memory using Avery labels is when we used the clear labels and drew mustache’s on them. The girls squealed with joy at drawing their own mustache and wearing them about.

    You know you are a teacher

    You know you are a teacher, when labels are exciting
    For simple sticky sheets can make your classroom so inviting
    You stock up on Avery products every year it’s true,
    For without these trusty items, what would a teacher do?
    There’d be no supply labels, the thought just makes me cry
    Glue sticks would be with crayons, a giant mess, oh my!
    The teacher spot would be a nightmare, with no labels for our desk
    How would we find stickers or pens? It’d be an awful mess!
    Field trips would not be possible for there’d be no name tags to hand out
    And going without name tags would be a scary thought, no doubt
    Centers would be impossible, and the book bins would be bare
    All the genres would be mixed, oh what an awful scare!
    There’d be no dividers for binders to keep everything separate and neat
    For organizing with kids is hard enough. and without dividers? An impossible feat!
    So, clearly, we need Avery, the company that has it all
    It’s a one stop shop, for our classroom to have us ready in the Fall
    And although we could try it without you, we really don’t want to do that
    Cause it’d take forever to organize and WE AIN’T GOT TIME FOR DAT!

    I bring the Avery product over seas to london, to use for school. Since nobody but me has the produces I always get a good grade. I am also a CIT(Counselor In Training) and I use the stickers to bribe the children. My family also uses the product to mark where every thing is in the house.

    Using the Avery Products is the only way to go… have a product that lasts and looks attractive. You can use this to personalize so many things making the children delighted to have a gift with their name on it for their classroom. It also give the teacher a little relief in having someone help with her or his job when they give so much of their time doing so much that few people realize. A lot of what the teachers do comes out of their own pockets due to the budget cuts. It’s a joy to help and so much fun creating things for the children and their teacher. Who couldn’t use this gift as a great way to start off the school year.

    I only use Avery Labels/Products for all the items I make. I make the labels for all the grandchildren for all their personal products including the name badges for our grandson’s class, the desk names so that when the parents visit they know which desk belongs to their child. I also use the labels for all my products: Pure Indulgence Bath and Body Products including the candles I make, as well as all my Bakery (from scratch food products for those given as gifts) and The Barkery (all canine and feline gifts) Products. Creating the labels, name badges gives me such joy when I get to see the children getting something with their name on it. It’s a surprise to the teacher as well to get a gift all decorated for them…ready to use for the classroom. When I plan on making something then it will be with Avery Products because they are the best and it’s important to make something that is going to hold up and look pretty as well.

    Avery products could not get better!They are very useful when it comes to organizing for a school project and classes. The three ring binders and dividers and tabs help a lot. It reduces my chances of loosing homework and class work. I can find things instantly without having to move things around and be exposed to make a mess and it reduce stress. Avery Products are the best way to start school.

    With the amazing Avery products I found for sale, I created a masterful pop-up book, if I say so myself. Using the Tops Idea Collective Journal for the pages of the book, I created a story though a series of images to tell the life of volcanic rocks. With strips of red Project Popperz, I created a river of lava. With Index Cards, I was able to thicken pictures to really pop out of the pages. With trendy Stinky Stickers, I had pre-made faces for each rock’s “personality”. Being a school supply snob, I only use the best materials to create the projects I do. Each project filled with time and effort to give it my all. And thanks to Avery products, I am able to create them with the ease and perfection I crave.

  11. Joy says:

    I use Avery labels to keep all my folders organized. They are easy to use and work well with my printer. I used them around the house to label certain items also. They are a great product to have around.

  12. Lorene desjardins says:

    I work with special needs students and I use a variety of Avery products with my students. One product I use a lot are the 3 ring binders. I use them for a project I call ” social stories” that I do with my students at the beginning of each school year. Since my students usually have difficulties transitioning to different classes and activities , I make them a small binder that they carry with them. On each page in the binder is a picture of the child at that class or doing that activity as well as a very simple sentence ie: Pauline is jumping on the trampoline during P.E.”
    Thanks to the Avery binders, they are able to transition to all of their activities.

    Well, on the night before the first day of school I plan to use some Avery labels to make a trail of clues so I will hopefully find my way to school on the first day, and then I will also be able to use them to find my way home after the exhausting first day. I also can use those very same labels to leave a “bread trail” to the teachers’ bathroom if ever I can get a break, I can hopefully find my way there. I also envision using the very same said labels to make a bread crumb trail for my students to be able to find their way back from their bathrooms also. The more I think about it I may need to buy stock in Avery, then I might be able to afford the ipad on my own. Any way Cheers for the first day of school.

    Back-to-school is always a bit easier if you have the right tools to keep you organized, and my choice is Avery to help me get off on the right track. Something I started doing my last three years as a third grade teacher was creating a school-home notebook that was introduced to students and parents at open house. After my first successful year, I shared my notebooks with my fellow teachers and now many of them still use them in their classrooms in grades K-3. The notebooks are an essential tool in our efforts to boost communication between home and school, as well as aiding in students becoming more organized and responsible. Avery products have available all one would need to make the notebook possible: a three ring binder which houses it all, sheet protectors to keep the weekly newsletters, reading logs, parent-teacher communication log, lunch menu, class scheule, and behavior chart protected and in one pace, pocket folders for graded papers, notes, and homework, a zipper pouch to hold sticky notes, a highlighter, pen, and pencil, as well as a secure place for any money that is to be turned in for field trips, lunch, etc., and of course paper both for students to write their assignments down, and to create a snazzy cover sheet for their binder. All of the essential supplies needed for the notebook, Avery has it,and more!

    We use dry erase markers and board to make notes of everything we need to do to prepare for back to school night. I use Avery name tags so that everybody can get to know one another. And use Avery labels on clothing, books and cubby holes for easy locating.

  16. Johnny Stevens says:

    Avery Labela are my absolute favorite brand, I use them for everything-labeling my kids’ lunches, using them to price mark garage sale items, and even for maili that I send out. Avery labels are awesome!

  17. Paula Diekhoff says:

    I volunteer at a clothing pantry. I designed labels for the clothing racks, using Avery, then attached the labels to heavy duty magnets. These magnetized labels allow us to move sizes of clothing to different racks, depending upon need and volume. I loved using Avery for designing the labels, as the directions were easy and clear. I believe Avery is customer-oriented and their products are problem-solvers.

  18. Serena Adkins says:

    I am a school teacher and I love to use avery labels. Some of the things I make with avery labels are: Table Numbers, book bin labels, week day labels, pencil labels with my kids names o them, classroom schedule signs, Calendar numbers, day, months from A to Z, Calendar labels; A Day in the Life of a Classroom Teacher, Clock numbers to teach kids how to tell time, behavior coupons, room quotes for the classroom. I believe in organization skills because it makes for great learning.

  19. Katherine says:

    Love avery products~ First off I make mailing labels for all the parents for sending notes good and “bad” home, kids have their bags that hang on the back of the chairs labeled with their names, above their coat hook and anywhere else I can label for individual children,.

  20. Jennifer K. says:

    I use the Avery cards to print business cards for work. The card quality is just as good as getting them professionally printed but at a more cheaper and affordable cost! I use their templates that can be found on their website as well to line the art or print work. I find their labels also really useful for printing addresses, or marking folders or papers.

  21. Deb C says:

    I grow heirloom tomatoes of numerous varieties. I like to compare taste and decide which varieties I want to plant again next year. I also give tomatoes away to friends and they like to know the names of them as well. After they’re picked, it is sometimes hard to remember which tomato is which, so I keep sheets of tiny Avery labels with the names of whatever I am growing printed on them. As I pick tomatoes, I stick the corresponding name on them. It’s very easy and effective.

  22. Barbara says:

    Avery name labels are number one on my list of items for Back to School nights and beginning of the year staff meetings where we want people to be identified to others. We use Avery binders, printable dividers and pocket folder dividers to organize master copies of all our master documents for meetings. We put all our papers to teachers in Avery binders. Of course Avery labels are used for mailings for the meetings, Avery is number one in keeping us organized in our school office.

  23. Brandon says:

    Avery products are very useful all the time. I love putting the dividers in binders when a project is needed to be presented. They create a professional look that I can only thank Avery for. They have just about anything you would need for school or setting up a meeting. Overall, Avery is a classy company that provides A+ products.

    I have the kids use the name tags to creat name tags for their parents to wear on back to school night. We use the dry erase markers to write notes to the parents on our boards to leave on the desk
