View Full Version : How do you label your child's things.

We just received our welcome letter from my DS's teacher for the fall. It said in the letter to mark everything like you are sending your child off to camp. Before I take a Sharpie to everything he owns are ther any cool/different ways to mark things? (Cloting, lunchbox, gym sneakers...)

Well I just use a Sharpie. :) I usually write on the tag (and initials are usually fine). I write her name inside her shoes.

Colorful Images (catalog company specializes in labels, checks, etc.) sells a self-inking stamp that is made specifically for clothing. You can find it here http://www.colorfulimages.com/productDisplay/displaySingleSpread/0,1220,159424|1||fullPERS|L|abbrvert|L|nonext||non extsec|,00.html don't think it would work on the lunch box, but most everything else...

I was going to buy labels and tags from one of these 2 places:



But then I started checking out e-bay and I found a seller for

iron on labels: retailtherapy4you

waterproof labels: mommyinmd

bag tags: philw44

I went to Office Depot and saw they had some kits for making your own iron on stuff or luggage tags or labels. I like doing this kind of stuff, but then thought of how many other projects I had on my plate. So ebay it was and I bought them today.

DD had fun looking at all the different artwork and liked "choosing" her own things!

HTH and Good Luck!
