11 kids’ name labels for school supplies | Mum's Grapevine

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been to Lost Property. With school starting soon and an average of 350 identical hats present in the playground, it’s time to find some fun name stickers to ensure every kids’ item comes home.

Kids’ name labels are stickers that are applied to clothing and possessions that have a child’s name or other identifying information printed on it. Armed with an iron or sticker sheet, parents across Australia are looking to make sure that the same school jumper they leave with is the same one that comes home.

To help you find name stickers that stay stuck and stand out, we’ve scouted the best brands in Australia.

Types of kids’ name labels

Stuck on You name labels

Adhesive kids’ labels are strong, scratch-resistant stickers used to identify objects like containers, drink bottles, books and stationery.

Iron-on labels are fabric tags that stick to clothing with the heat of an iron. Washing machine and dryer safe, they’re a permanent solution to garments on high rotation.

Shoe labels are waterproof, tough sticky labels that hold tight to the insole of a shoe and resists fading and rubbing.
