Do name labels for school work?

Promoting school labels have three important functions.

  1. Fundraising - By promoting My Nametags labels in school or nusery, the organisation or PTA can raise funds, whilst promoting good practice to parents.
  2. Help recover items in a school or nursery - By putting the name of the child on the label, it is easy to return lost items to its owner or the parents. Even if there are two pupils with the same name, it is easy to find the owner when you use school name tags.
  3. Help return items lost outside - This might not seem to important to your school or crèche, but it is a financial cost to the parents as well as more items filling up our landfills. Clothing with school uniform labels is quickly returned to parents. And lost sports kit, lunch boxes, water bottles and other items can add up over the years.

Research by My Nametags found that up to 75% of items are recovered in the first 24 hours of being lost, if you use name tags for school.

Using nametags
at school/nursery

If parents put nursery name labels on all clothing and equipment that children bring in, this saves a lot of time for nursery or kindergarten staff. These labels can also be matched with peg labels (and they can have a design that matches their peg animal or item), to help children learn to be tidy and to match similar items. For children who can not read yet, a design on the daycare name tags will help them identify their equipment and clothing, and help them learn to recognise and spell their name.
My Nametags labels are an essential for day care children, to ensure that their favorite jumpers or teddies make it home. Useful for parents and staff at nurseries, our fun designs also help pre-school children to recognise their own belongings. Nametags are great for bags, jumpers, coats and even shoes.


At school, name labels are very helpful to save teachers' time chasing after lost property and dealing with children who have lost their clothes, shoes or equipment.

School Uniform

If your school is using school uniform, name tags are even more important. School uniform name stickers can quickly be stuck into clothing, and they are waterproof so they stay on in the wash. No more fights about whose school jumper this is, just look inside and see the name. My Nametags supplies uniform labels to schools nationwide.
For Parent Teacher Associations, My Nametags' name labels are very useful. In addition to saving parents money, we can also work with PTAs to help raise money for the school or nursery. Just register with us and you will get a commission on every school name labels set sold, to be used to help your school.

My Nametags' personalised school labels are perfect for rough everyday school use, they are easy to stick, and the labels stay on wash after wash. It is easy to fit a house name, pupil number or class on the name tags in addition to their full name and a parent's phone number. Many parents also put the name of the school or preschool on their labels, to ensure that lost items are returned to the school.

My Nametags colour stickers can be stuck into school uniform and clothing, and stay on in the wash, covering all those back-to-school labelling needs. Applied to the washing or care labels of the clothes, they will stay on for years. Our name tags can also be used for school ties, other school wear and any other clothing, as well as for all equipment, such as PE bags, lunchboxes, bottles and books, CDs and DVDs. The stickers can also be used to label shoes. The school labels can bend around curved items like a bottle and they are very easy to put on. Our labels are simple for parents to design and order. We also do other labels types, such as iron on labels, but most customers simply chose the sticker labels that stay on.
