5 Reasons to Use Personalized Address Labels

As the holidays come to a close, planning for those holiday cards and yearly correspondence letters become a very real (and perhaps daunting) task for millions of people all over the world. Holiday greeting cards are a chance to catch up with friends and family members that live far away, letting them know you’re thinking about them, wishing them well and sending well wishes from your home to theirs.

Personalized address labels are a great way to add an extra-personalized touch to your holiday cards. They can also be helpful in implementing this sometimes-overwhelming task — who wants to handwrite all those return addresses? These peel-and-stick personalized address labels are an easy-peasy way to knock out those addresses in no time at all. At Kimball Corner, we’ve compiled five reasons to use personalized address labels to add delight to everything from your holiday card greetings to your everyday correspondence.

#1: Self-Stick Address Labels are Convenient

Have you ever gotten your correspondence together, envelopes stuffed, letters written and envelopes stamped — just to find that the very last task of writing return addresses has been forgotten? The result? It is usually a hastily scrawled address that won’t help anyone out in the event that your letter needs to be returned. Personalized address labels come in convenient sheets and rolls as well as in many different styles — even in large-print styles — so you can tailor your return address needs to your design preference. Keep Miles Kimball’s personalized address labels with your postage stamps so they’re ready to go when you are! No more sloppy return address writing — these convenient, colorful personalized address labels are a welcome addition for both you, for your letter’s recipient — and for the postal service workers who may have to refer to that return address. Remember, too, that many individuals keep and read those return address labels to update their address books each year — so make this task easy for them (especially if you’ve moved in the past year) by adding personalized address labels from Miles Kimball to your cards.

#2: Personalized Labels are Easy to Use

These little additions to your correspondence really couldn’t be easier to use: just peel and stick on the return address section of your envelope for a secure, easy-to-read return address. Whether you prefer a personalized address label sheet of 20 with matching seals or a roll of 200, Miles Kimball has the personalized address labels needed to get that tedious task whipped out in no time at all! Not only are personalized address labels easy to use, they’re also super easy to create. Just click on the blue “Personalize It” button to be taken to our easy-to-use personalization tool. Type out four lines, 25 characters per line, and verify that the information is correct. Hint: Sometimes it is a great idea to have someone else double check your input skills. Ask someone in your house to verify that the information is correct to ensure that no mistakes are present before submitting your order. No one around? Take a photo of your information and send a quick text to a child, a grandchild or a friend you trust to catch any errors. It’s always better to be too cautious than receive an entire order of address labels that have one wrong number or a misspelled street name!

5 Reasons to Wear Slippers in Your Home

As the chill sets into the air, there are just certain things that we reach for to give us comfort. It could be that mug of hot chocolate or tea, your favorite warm, fluffy blanket or that extra-cozy sweater. Soft, warm slippers go hand-in-hand with the fall, winter and early spring seasons. They’re also naturals to give as gifts during the holiday celebrations, as well as birthdays, special occasions and more. Here at Kimball Corner, we’ve put together some reasons why slippers for men and slippers for women are some of our favorite winter items — and why wearing them in your home is such a good idea (as if you needed more reasons to love slippers!).

Slippers Take Away the Chill and Keep You Healthy

Cold floors are no match for a cozy pair of slippers. Keep a pair beside your bed (along with a super-warm robe) to put on first thing in the morning so you can get that first cup of coffee or tea in comfort. When the outdoors is bitter cold and flu season hits, did you know slippers can actually keep you healthy? Studies have shown that cold feet directly affect your body’s ability to fight off illnesses. When your feet are cold, your body experiences a protective mechanism that helps control the escape of heat from your body: the blood vessels in your nose and throat constrict. The tiny protective hairs in the nose that “catch” germs and bacteria can also be affected, making them less effective. Who knew that cold feet could directly affect your body’s defenses against sickness?

Slippers Are Hygienic

Think about where your shoes have been all day: on the bus, in restrooms, at school, at the grocery store. It’s enough to give you the heebie-jeebies (so maybe don’t think about too much). In fact, some studies have shown that the bottoms of your shoes are dirtier than a public bathroom. Although many countries have incorporated taking shoes off at the door into their cultures (Scandinavia, Japan, etc.), Americans are known for not requiring family and friends to take their shoes off upon entering their homes. Want to implement this practice? Having a basket of “guest slippers” at the door can soften your request for guests to take their shoes off at the front door. The “no shoes in the house” rule can keep your floors, carpets and rugs cleaner and can reduce the chances coming into contact with nasty germs.

Slippers Help Reduce Communicable Diseases

Although bare feet can be comfortable, when you live in a home with others, bare feet can help facilitate the spread of certain fungal infections and communicable disease like athlete’s foot, fungus, warts, staph infections, viruses and more. This is especially concerning if you have kids who participate in sports or family members who are in and out of gym locker rooms (because who knows what they can contract in those public places!). Enacting a “no bare feet” policy in your house may take some time to get used to, but it can do so much for the health and wellbeing of your family. Make this transition easy by buying a pair of comfy slippers for each member of your family and make it fun, colorful and cozy.

Slippers for Men and Slippers for Women at Miles Kimball

Miles Kimball has a ton of slippers available for both men and women that makes it easy, convenient and ultra-affordable to wear these comfortable footwear pieces in your home.

You’re sure to find a slipper and footwear style that will fit your lifestyle — whether you’re indoors or outdoors. Don’t forget to purchase a few extra slippers for guests to make their visits warm, safe and clean.

Slippers Reduce Household Slips and Falls

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments each year due to falls. In 2015, falls cost the American public more than $50 billion in medical costs. One easy way to stay steady on your feet is to wear slippers in the house. Although socks keep your feet warm, they don’t have hard soles and can cause slips on tile or other slippery surfaces. At Miles Kimball, our slippers are available in dozens of slipper styles for men and women — from comfort slides and Mary Jane-style non-slip slippers to clogs, ballet slipper styles and edema slippers, which allow you to adjust their fit via Velcro fasteners to personalize your comfort level. Have someone in your life who needs some extra security around their house? Consider browsing Miles Kimball’s selection of slippers and give them the gift of safety for holidays, special occasions or birthdays.

Slippers Help You Get Things Done

When you’re cold or chilled, it’s tough to concentrate on much else. Did you know that studies have shown that slippers help increase productivity — both at home and at work? No, slippers are not just for at home — they can also be great additions to your office as well!
