    Default Best school labels?

    Ok, school goes back in two weeks and I need to get some more labels, predominantly the vinyl type ones for naming drink bottles and containers. We've had several types over the years but none of them have been fabulous - the best ones were probably the ones I first bought 3 years ago but I now have no idea where I got them

    So can anyone recommend any labels / companies that they have found to be good quality (and preferably economical as well!) ?

    TIA

    I got a school pack that came with heaps of different labels for $20 posted, they often have that sale going.

    I hafto disagree with brightstar; their iron in labels fell off after one wash and i put then on correctly.

    The other labels are great but the iron on is terrible!

    Thanks for the responses.

    I just realised this thread has a sad face next to the title, no idea how I managed to do that lol

    I can't go past 'That's Mine' labels, they are very reasonably priced, but excellent quality, no bubbling, lifting, fading etc, even after years of dishwasher use.

    I also like their shoe labels too, the best thing ever when you have little ones taking their shoes off in the sandpit etc.

    (OP, I'll take the sad face away from your title).

    I've had hippoblue (used to be moo from memory), bright star & stuck on you.

    Stuck on you seems to be the best in my experience of those three. I only had vinyl labels though in this brand ... Not iron ons.

    I use bright star kids ones and have to say in regards to the comment above that their iron on labels came off - i had the opposite issue and took hours to scratch/peel off a label from a school dress that DD1 had worn for 2yrs that i was selling

    We've had the stuckonyou labels for well over six years now and the first ones are still going strong, however I just threw out several things with them on as the plastics wore out before they did.
