We all know how easy it is for children to lose their supplies at school. Name labels are the perfect way to make sure you don't lose track of your child's equipment, but what kind of labels should you use? Here is our guide for choosing the right school name labels for the job!


When labelling your child's clothing, it's important to select a waterproof style of sticker. It will have to endure a lot of washes, after all! We would also recommend labels with rounded corners, as these won't irritate the skin.


Many suppliers will offer stick-on or iron-on styles for clothing. Here at Dotty about Paper, we offer both, so you can choose the kind that is most convenient for you!

School Equipment

School requires a lot of different supplies, from lunchboxes and drinks bottles to bags and notebooks. That's where stick-on name labels come in! Waterproof stick-on styles are perfect if you're labelling a smooth, hard surface. They're even ideal for shoes. Make sure to choose a supplier who offers no-smudge, no-fade stickers. The labels are sure to face a lot of use during a busy school day, so they need to be up to the task!

Name labels can be fun as well as useful. Dotty about Paper offers lots of designs and colours, letting your child show their individuality. Pick a label in their favourite colour or choose an emblem picture that matches their interests.

School name labels aren't just useful for clothing. You can use them for pens, pencils, rulers, and other essential stationery. Make sure to check the size of the items you want to label before you purchase any stickers. This will help you select a product with the correct measurements. Even though their stationery likely won't be cleaned in the same way as their clothing and equipment, we still recommend choosing a waterproof sticker. This will protect the label's clarity after light cleaning, in case of exposure to rain, and other situations.
