Your choice of markers is important to ensure applicability, ease of use, and durability. To this end, let’s look at why labels are important and the considerations for choosing labels to mark a wide range of items.
Why Name Tags for School Items are Essential
Stationary, devices, clothing, sport equipment, art supplies, chess boards, lunch boxes, and the likes all cost money. BusinessTech published an article titled “The costs of schooling in South Africa in 2021 – and hidden fees to look out for” in February 2021, highlighting the concern of parents regarding the hidden costs of education. According to the article, the cost of food items, uniforms, electronic equipment, and stationary is a concern for the majority of parents. Marking these types of items is imperative to avoid loss.
Misplacing a pen might not be a big deal but losing a valuable item like a hockey stick or chess clock can put a serious damper on your child’s day. Having to constantly replace unmarked items is not only tiring, but also costly. Quality labels that make it easy for your kid to identify their items enable you to save money, help them reduce the time they spend on finding their valuables, and make it possible for personnel to confirm your child’s rightful ownership of an item in the lost and found box.
What to Look for When Choosing Labels to Mark Items
Keep in mind that it will be difficult for your youngster to claim ownership on unmarked learning supplies. This means that the ideal identity stickers should be durable enough to withstand washing, drying, and daily wear. Let’s consider the minimum requirements for proper labelling below.
Top Requirements for Name Tags for School:
Here are some of the top requirements for name tags:
- Dishwasher proof for easy cleaning without damaging the lettering
- Scratch resistant to prevent easy removal of the prints
- Long lasting as the items need to go through a year of use before replacement
- Microwave resistant since you might need to warm up food in the lunch box
- Quality adhesive to ensure proper tagging
- Suitable for the particular item like clothing, a book, device, etc.
- Freezer safe to enable overnight storage
- Able to withstand elements of nature as your children might spend a large part of their day on the playground or sports field
