Mabel’s Labels at St. Margaret

St. Margaret Families:

Our school is fundraising with Mabel’s Labels!

If you’re not familiar with Mabel’s Labels, they are personalized, durable, waterproof labels. They are great for everything from shoes, clothing tags, water bottles and backpacks. You can customize them with your name and a design, and they are dishwasher, laundry and microwave safe. They have expanded their product collection to include so much more than just your standard name label.

Mabel’s Labels also offers clothing stamps, silicone bands for water bottles and medical alert labels. This is a great way to ensure your items don’t end up in the lost & found or mixed up. To reduce the spread of germs, we highly recommend labelling but they are also useful for everyday life.

To support our fundraiser, visit and select St. Margaret (Cambridge). You can pick out whatever labels or product you want, and it will ship for free directly to your house! Thank you for supporting us! ????
