Cando braille labels are semi-rigid, incomplete circle shapes, that clip snugly around the outside of a container.

Grade 1 or 2 U.S. braille is modeled into the outside face of the label, and corresponding engraved text is found on the inside face.

Simply place the reusable Cando braille label on the corresponding jar, bottle, lid or can. You can ask your pharmacist, grocery bagger or delivery person to assist if needed by using the engraved text inside the label to quickly apply it to the correct container.

When you’re done using the label,  pull it off and place it on the optional concrete and wood holder available here.  The braille embossed labels on the holder then act as a readable braille shopping list.

Schools, training centers and workplaces can also benefit from Cando reusable braille labels. Whether applied to chemical bottles in chemistry classes, or food items in cooking classes, Candos increase successful independent studying and practice, while making it safer and more efficient for blind or low-vision employees, students, and staff.
