Ways to label kids’ names on clothes and school materials
It’s back to school time! I’m really looking forward to it, although I hate to label each and everyone of my minimoi’s clothes. I haven’t found any way to skip this dreadful task so now I realize all the hard work my mum had every year (sewing personalized clothing labels).
Luckily there are some entrepreneurs that are trying to make our life a little bit easier (for a reasonable price).
Last year I discovered etic-etac. They offer iron on and stick-on clothing labels apart from personalized stickers to let you mark everything you need. This year they also offer personalized lunch bags (cuter than in similar websites).
Another similar website is Fun Choices where they sell quite complete school packs for 19 euros. Like etic-etac one can choose the color, size and icon of the labels and stickers. They also sell personalized notebooks and cards.
At simply colors they offer some basics (t-shirts, jumpsuits, socks,…) that contain the name of your kid already on the label. They also offer a lot of potential presents that can be customized such as backpacks.
But the fact is that when you need to identify every piece of underwear and countless t-shirts you can get tired of ironing or it can cost you a fortune so when I discovered minestamp I thought it was a good idea as well.
Also known as the Custom Laundry Stamp it is a self-inking stamp that contains special indelible ink for clothing. The ink pad lasts a very long time and can be replaced when print eventually becomes light. This is by far much easier to apply than name labels and you can use it with white ink for dark clothing.
If there’s one shop known for their personalization obsession it is definitely tutete. They started with pacifiers and now they offer cool backpacks like the ones we presented you (here).
And last, a discovery sent by Ona from the States: online shop Pottery Barn Kids where they personalize backpacks, towels and even blankets.
Now I don’t have any excuse! Let’s see if I let go my laundry marker…
