Areas of usage for name labels

Name labels has multiple areas of usage
Name labels are mostly used in the kindergarten, SFO and school – and it’s a good idea, but there are many other uses. Pretty much anything of noteworthy value (money or affection) should be labeled with your name, and preferably phone number in case a stranger might find a lost item.

Labeling your wallet, cell phone, computer, camera, memory stick, bicycles, pedal cars, toys, etc. will increase the probability that the lost item will be returned by a honest finder.

But it is equally important to label things that you lend to friends and acquaintances. Examples of things you should label are your DVD collection, CD collection, your tools, books, magazines and children’s toys (and your ..?). Then you can be sure that those who have borrowed your items know who they borrowed it off and make sure it is returned.


Content on name tags in the kindergarten

In kindergarten, it is likely that items will be confused or misplaced. It is rarely total strangers who find your assets here. It is therefore usually enough to label the child’s clothes and assets with first name and / or last name (and maybe department). Phone number is not necessary in this context. What we do advise our customers to include on name labels for use in kindergarten is an icon. Choose a theme to which the child has a relationship with. This makes it possible for children to recognize their own thing before he / she has learned to read – Smart! :D

Content on name labels for use at home

All families should have a set of name labels for labeling of family assets that are not always located within the four walls of the home. A ‘universal’ name label for the entire family should at least contain family name and telephone number. Feel free to add address as well. Allthough, remember that much text combined with an icon means that the text will become smaller. Therefore, choose either to have family name, telephone number and icon, or omit the icon and include the address, too.

Icons on name labels

We have at the time of writing 135 different motives for use on name labels. The designs are divided in categories; miscellaneous, animals, characters, machines, collections, sports and astrology.

When designing your name label it  is optional wether or not to include an icon. The icons often makes the label a bit more personal, plus make it easier to recognize the assets without the need to read the text. Icons are therefore particularly suitable for use on children’s things. Then they can recognize their own assets in kindergarten and at school before they have learned to read.

Uses for name labels

We’ve got two types of name labels: Labels for clothing and textiles (iron-on) and labels for hard / smooth surfaces (adhesive). If you have both types, you’re able to label most things:


Name labels on the kids’ belongings

Name labels (aka: labels, name tags) can be used on nearly everything. Common uses are labeling clothes and belongings for use in the nursery school, school, leisure, sports, etc. If you label children’s clothes, bottles, food boxes, toys, etc. you’ll never lose or mix up your belongings with others’, which can be very costly in the long run.

Ie, loss of unmarked jacket – $50? $100? $200?

Labeling  adults’ belongings

Other areas where name labels are commonly used are elderly homes, elderly, nursing homes, communities, workplace, on uniforms, military, hospitals, etc. In short, any place where there’re many people and there’s a good chance of confusing belongings with someone else’s.

Name labels at home
Label books, DVD, CD, BlueRay, LP, MiniDisc collection with name labels. Then you’re sure of getting back all the movies or music you lend out. Why not label your collections?

(Model trains, racing track, RC vehicles).

Name labels in companies
Labels (tags) are a convenient way to mark clothing and objects with the name of your company, while labeling items with individuals’ name  will prevent confusion of personal items at the work place; eg. mobile phones, PDA’s, laptops and uniforms.

Why name labels?

Name labels have many uses and the purpose is to safeguard assets against loss and confusion. Name labels are widely used in kindergartens, day-care programs, schools, elderly homes, nursing homes, military, hospitals and similar places where there are many people gathered and the likelihood for chaos is great :D

Using name labels on textiles, clothing, uniforms, drink bottles, toys, equipment, tools, etc. decreases the likelihood of losing objects. There are two kinds of labels: Iron-ons and adhesive.

You may have asked yourself why you can’t just use a permanent mark pen?

Mark pens  is all well and good, but the pen  color is not necessarily very visible on the garment or item that is marked. Dark pen on dark surfaces works poorly. Moreover, the ink is rarely very durable and will soon wear off. Name labels also provide the opportunity to add a great motif. Motif allow children to recognize their belongings before they have learned to read :D

Last, not everyone has equally beautiful handwriting – especially in this “age of the keyboard”. Then it’s nice to have labels with clear machine print avaible!
