The answer is quite straightforward: with a school name label, of course!
Just be sure you start with quality so you don’t end up frustrated with peeling, fading, flaking labels down the line.
Look for labels that have the following attributes, where applicable.
● Waterproof (and weatherproof, or at least weather-resistant)
Depending on what you’re labeling (for instance, clothing or backpacks), that label might be outdoors a good chunk of the day.
That means it could be exposed to rain and snow from time to time, as well as bright sun. Weatherproof and weather-resistant labels last longer!
But waterproof name labels are better. Spills and errant splashes are bound to happen at school and play, and labels with waterproof tendencies and quality adhesives will stay put and last longer.
When you label plastic containers, water bottles, and other drinkware, you’ll want the peace of mind that you can run them through the dishwasher from time to time.
Some school name labels can be run through the dishwasher, although some special observations are recommended, such as placing them on the top rack and not exposing them to bleach or strong detergents.
Laundry-safe school name labels are a must for any labels destined for clothing. Gloves, hats, school uniforms, shorts, and even jackets get dirty and if you can’t run them through the washer and dryer, that’s extra work for you.
You also don’t need a permanent label for this – there are even some stick-on-clothing labels that are both washer and dryer-safe.
Kids’ labels for school need to be tough enough for both class, recess, and the random forays of early childhood. Labels made from thin or low-quality material won’t last long.
Many paper labels are also a no-go. You need something made from a tougher, thicker yet flexible material that will resist tearing, scratching, and more.
Labeling containers destined to carry food or drink to camp or school? You won’t have to think twice about reheating them later if you need to as long as they’re microwave-safe – just an extra nice feature to have!
● Fridge and freezer-safe
Lunch boxes and similar school items sometimes find themselves in the fridge or freezer at the end of the day or week (or beforehand). Fridge and freezer safe kids’ name labels that won’t get stiff and fall off will last longer and keep everything organized.
● Compatibility with a wide range of surfaces
Finally, look for kids’ school name labels that work for you and are compatible with a wide range of materials, such as glass, metal, plastic, and even paper and cardboard. The more different school supplies you can label with a single type of sticking label, the better!
