DIY Name Tags for Clothing


Next week Vi starts (play)school and, like most schools, it is requested that you label all of your kid’s clothing. It’s a little costly to buy custom made labels, especially when they’re so simple and affordable to make yourself.

1. Buy a couple sheets of iron-on transfer paper, such as Avery Printable Cotton ($6.50 on Amazon).

2. Create a letter sized document in a design program or word (whatever you have and feel comfortable using).

3. Type up your child’s name and repeat it, leaving extra space around the margins for printer errors and space in between the words for cutting and ironing on. I used ~1.5 x .5 inches for each label.

Play around with color and fun fonts, just keep them legible.

4. Print, cut, iron on. You’re done!
