Children’s name labels: review

One thing you need lots of when the kids start nursery/school is name labels! I have 2 children at school and everything has to be labelled: clothes, shoes, pe kit, trainers, the bag it goes in, lunch boxes, snack boxes, drink bottles…everything!

A sharpie pen works well for a while, but does run when you write on some materials and does wipe off quickly on some materials. I have found the best solution are sticky labels, like these from

You get 56 of these to a sheet (for £11.95 + p&p), which should last you the first year or so of school. You can change the background design, the font and the picture on the side. The picture is great for preschool/reception children before they recognise their names. The text is quite small, it gets smaller the more letters you add so perhaps put: Jack S instead of their full name if they struggle to read small letters.

The labels can be used on snack pots or drinks bottles and are dishwasher friendly so won’t come off. They can also be used on clothing, washing machine safe and shoes, which is great they don’t get the sticky residue which some leave behind.

These labels last really well and are well sized for fitting on everything, not too big and not too small!

  1. These look really good, I have read bad reviews of similar products so never bothered and I have found the ‘iron on’ labels to be rubbish so just use a fabric pen or permanent marker, but these are lovely, will definitely check them out. #KCACOLS
