FAQs in bold in blue, organge, green, and red text
How do you write your name on a school uniform?

While there are fabric pens available, they can be messy — and the results are often unsatisfactory. That’s why we recommend using name tag stickers for school clothes and equipment.

How do you make a name tag for school children?

We believe that investing in professionally printed name label stickers for school is the most cost-effective way to protect your school uniform, books, water bottles and equipment.

While it’s possible to create your own name stickers for school, we don’t recommend it. One of the issues we often hear about is fading. If you’re making school name stickers without commercial-grade inks and machinery, they won’t last as long as the items they’re identifying. Even a single washing cycle could be enough to either dislodge the sticker or render it illegible.

Our school name stickers are designed to look like new after multiple washing cycles.

How do you iron a name tag on a school uniform?

You will need to buy an iron-on name label, which is designed to “melt” onto fabric when heat is applied. While this is an effective way to label clothes, it’s a permanent one.

Simply place the label where you want it on an item of clothing, and apply heat with a domestic iron. You can also use hair straighteners.

How do you sew a name label on clothes?

While it’s possible to sew name labels onto clothing, we don’t recommend it. Not only is it fiddly and time-consuming, but it can also damage fabrics unless you know what you’re doing.

Placing school name stickers directly onto care and brand labels is quicker and more cost-effective. And our name tag stickers for school last just as long as sew-on options.

How do you mark kids school clothes?

There are several ways to mark kids’ school clothes. Some people use fabric pens; others sew on labels. But we believe the fastest and most effective way is to use school name stickers.

If you choose to use name stickers for school instead of iron-on labels, make sure you place them onto care or brand labels, as they won’t stick to the fabric during washing cycles.

Where do name tags go on school uniforms?

If you’re using name stickers for school to identify items of uniform, you should place them on care or brand labels. Don’t place school name stickers on fabric, as they won’t survive a wash cycle.
