I recently asked the Friends of my “Louise nhm Smith” profile on Facebook for their recommendations for name labels for school clothes.
Thank you very much to everyone who responded and thank you to Shona for putting this post together!
These were the responses I received.
NHM Readers Recommend Name Labels for School Clothes
Woven Labels UK:
Karen said: I order from this site.
Wendy said: Another vote for these, been using them since he started nursery, the name stickers are really useful too, mine have them on their bikes and water bottles and they stay on.
Stephany recommends Able Labels.
Abigail said: I have just bought some from Able Labels.
Stephany also recommends Cash’s Woven
Michelle and Marie recommend using a Sharpie pen to label children’s clothes.
Sally said: Stikins are great.
Kate said: I second Stikins.
Name tags 4 u
Karen said: Name tags 4 u are great and very reasonably priced
Lowri said: The black and white stickers for water bottles etc, in the dishwasher and never had one fall off yet.
Kate said: Labels4Kids they are reasonable and the sticker ones are remarkably hard wearing. They have always been quick with delivery too.
Emma said: Easy2Name, local and very good.
Katie said: Their stick on labels are fantastic, do not come off in the washing machine. There are lots of designs and packages to choose from. Prompt service and online help if required.
Gillian said: Easy2Name for shoes and water bottles.
Allison said: In the end (three children!) I bought sew in labels with only our surname so I could pass uniform from one child to the next or cut them out of a worn out item and reuse the label.
Gillian said: Sew-in-labels for jumpers, sharpie for polo shirts (check each half term that it’s not faded to unreadable) and stick-in/on for shoes and water bottles.
North Hants Mum recommends – Stamptastic
Stamptastic provides stamps that work on fabric, metal, wood and some plastics. It saves you from having to sew or iron on labels. The stamping blocks are clear so you can easily position them. You can order them with any wording and numbers if you need to.
