Personalised name stickers - customise your own labels

Think about how you’d like to trace your child’s possessions if they get swapped or misplaced. Would you prefer someone to call you? Are you nervous about providing your child’s surname? Should people contact the school or a local sports club if they find the item?

The great thing about personalised sticky name labels is that you get to choose what information is included. You and your child can take full control of the design process with our easy-to-use online editor.

You have two lines of text to utilise within the design tool — how you use them is entirely up to you. For example, you can stick with your child’s first name, or you can use the family name if that will make returning the item easier for people.

A lot of parents choose to add their mobile phone number in order to leave their child out of the process. But some teenagers prefer to use their own number and deal with the lost item themselves.

In fact, there’s no limit to the kinds of information you can get printed on your personalised name tags. Here are some of the most popular choices among our customers:

1. Full name

2. First name

3. Surname

4. Nickname

5. Parent’s mobile number

6. Child’s mobile number (usually teenagers)

7. Child’s school or nursery name

8. Child’s class or house name

9. Child’s registration number

Decide which information will get your child’s items returned as quickly and smoothly as possible, and go with that. Just be sure you and your child are comfortable with the information you’re sharing with potential strangers.

Personalised name stickers for clothes

When you order personalised name labels to put on your kids' clothes, you would typically put their name (first name or first and last name), as well as your phone number. When an item is lost outside of school or nursery, the mobile number will ensure that a finder can return the item to you. For boarding schools, you might want to put the house number or registration number instead.

Personalised name stickers for water bottles

Water bottles will go anywhere with your kids, so putting their name and your phone number is usually the best idea. Labels for a bottle need to be very flexible, to bend around the bottle and still stay on in the wash in the dishwasher for years.

Personalised stickers for wall and doors

A custom door sticker with your kids' name will make them feel proud and feel more of an ownership of their room (that might not go all they way to tidying it, though). Personalise their room and door with stars or any of our many themes, with labels that are easily removable.

Personalise shoe labels

It is important to put shoe labels in a location that people will see it if the shoe is lost. My Nametags labels are high quality and very rub resistant, so can be put on the sole of the shoe under the heel. Your child's name is a must on the labels, and maybe the school or nursery name too.
