Name tags for clothes in the UK

Are you searching for stick-on name labels for clothes in the UK? If so, you’ve come to the right place. My Nametags is a one-stop-shop for premium stickers for clothes and a range of everyday items.

The main problem people face when using stick-on labels for clothing is getting them to stay in place. Only high-quality products made with premium plastic compounds can withstand everyday punishment and continual washing cycles.

Once you’ve found the perfect sticky clothes labels and created a fun design your child will love, you have to position it in the correct position. The best place for clothes stickers is the care label. Place it there firmly, and it will last as long as the garment. Not only that, you’ll be able to remove it with ease if you ever decide to give the garment to someone else.

Unless you’re using iron-on labels, don’t place your name stickers for clothes directly on fabric. Doing this will result in the sticker being dislodged when you wash the garment.

Stick-on labels for clothing

The great news is that our stickers for clothes can be used on just about any type of garment:

1. Jumpers

2. Trousers

3. School ties

4. Bags

5. PE garments

6. Shoes with a brand label (often on the tongue)

7. Certain items of underwear

Once your customised stick-on labels for clothing arrive, simply peel them off the sheet and apply them to a brand or care label. They’ll stay there for as long as the garment is in use — regardless of how often you wash them.

Sticker school labels

As these personalised name labels are perfect for all clothing and other items, they are the perfect school labels. With one set of sticky personalised name labels, you can quickly and easily label absolutely every school and nursery item and clothing. They are the best labels for school uniform too. If you compare the time it takes to label your child's belongings with how long it took to sew on labels in the past, there is no comparison! But don't take our word for it, read the My Nametags reviews from our brilliant customers, and choose for yourself.

Highlighting allergies on clothing labels for school

More and more we want to highlight allergies to school and nursery staff and other people. The My Nametags labels can easily be used as allergy labels, and we even provide allergy symbols for our labels. Typically you want to use these on lunch boxes and water bottles, but it can also be helful to alert school and nursery staff by putting allergy messages on clothing labels.

Waterproof stick-on clothing labels

We have designed our clothing label stickers to stand the test of time. In fact, we’re confident they’ll last longer than the garment if you follow our advice.

We manufacture all of our name tags with premium PVC — a plastic compound. This makes them waterproof for protection in washing machines. No matter how active your child is, or how often you wash their clothes, My Nametags name stickers will remain firmly in place.

So the next time your child comes home with someone else’s clothes, you’ll be able to get to the bottom of the confusion immediately.

Iron-on name labels

Sometimes, sticky clothing name labels won’t be appropriate. For example, if the garment doesn’t have a care or brand label, there’ll be nowhere to place a name sticker. When this is the case, we recommend our iron-on name labels for clothes.

You use the heat from a domestic iron or hair straighteners to ‘melt’ the personalised name label into the fabric of the garment. This ensures your child’s garments remain in place forever. This is also the perfect solution for some other clothing like underwear.

Personalised stickers for care home

Traditionally, care home labels were only sew on or iron on. With our excellent quality personalised clothing name stickers, it is easy to use sticker name tags. These labels stick on the care label or brand tag on the clothing, and stays on in the wash. No need to worry about your relative's favourite jumper being worn by someone else.
