    Default Name labels for school items

    Can anyone let me know which brands of name labels are good? Maybe Stuck on You? I see them advertised in magazines.
    DD starts Pre-Prep next year and I want to sort out labels for her lunchbox, water bottles, clothing etc.
    I need stuff that goes in the dishwasher/washing machine & dryer. I can't be bothered to hand wash anything!
    Do they often have specials on this type of thing later in the year or could I just get them now do you think.
    Thanks for any help!

    I forgot to add, what about the brand Identity Direct, I saw on their website they have disney princess labels. DD picked a princess lunchbox and bag so would be cute to match. But are they good quality to go in the dishwasher etc??? I don't want labels to peel off after one use!

    I always use Identity Direct.
    I have never had any issues with them.
    Before he started K this year, I got the name labels for the lunch boxes, shoes, iron on for clothes (get the stretchy ones, they last longer).
    And just recently I purchased the stationary kit. It came with a pencil case, lead pencils, colour pencils, markers etc all personalised.

    The vinyl labels don't come off, unless you really really pick them.
    The clothing ones are great and have never come off in the washing machine or dryer.
    I don't have a dishwasher, so I can't help with that one.

    But with the vinyl labels, they have 2 sizes. Go for the smaller ones, they are more versatile and will fit on anything. They spread the name over 2 lines whereas the larger ones, they put the name all on one line and they are quite large, esp if you have a long surname, like us.

    I quite like That's mine . com . au I like the designs and the fact that you can preview what they look like. I also like the fact that the clothing labels are very difficult to get off...industrial strength

    I use tinyme [.com . au] - used to be 'mooo'. Good quality, although I don't like their designs as much since they changed name.
