What are the Best Name Labels for Summer Camp?

Posted on

Name Labels for Summer Camp Items

Summer Camp season is here!  If you have children enrolled in either a day or sleep-away summer camp, the chances are you have a long list of items to gather together.  As you pile up all the necessary items, it is easy to realize that you need to make sure they all come home at the end of the season. It is incredibly easy for items to get mislaid, picked up by fellow campers, or simply lost so adding personalized name labels for summer camp items becomes an essential task.

Reduce stress and make things easier for the camper, the counselors, and the camp office by adding a simple personalized label to each item.

How to choose the right name labels

COTTON FABRICS

For smooth cotton fabrics, such as t-shirts, bed sheets, khaki shorts, smooth edged towels, etc., printed personalized iron-on labels will work very well. The heat from the iron melts the glue on the label, and has to be set at a very warm/hot setting. Cotton fabrics can take the heat without being damaged.

SYNTHETIC FABRICS

For synthetic fabrics, which usually have polyester yarns in the mix, an iron-on label would not be suitable. Sometimes the heat from an iron can cause the yarns to pucker.  With these items, a stick-on clothing label would work well.  The adhesive (glue) on these labels is especially designed to bond with polyester yarns.  Usually these labels are stuck onto the satin care label found on a garment’s seam, but they will also stick directly to the fabric if the majority yarn is polyester.

SOFT AND FUZZY FABRICS

For fabrics which have a soft or fuzzy finish, such as fleece jackets or gloves, blankets, sweaters, soft toys, etc., a personalized sew-in label is the only option. These yarns are not smooth enough to handle an iron-on or stick-on label.  Fully woven, these labels can easily be attached to items with a stitch in each corner.

HARD PERSONAL BELONGINGS

For items with a smooth hard surface, such as water bottles, flashlights, goggles, toiletries, etc., a simple stick-on name label would be ideal. The adhesive is designed to stick to clean surfaces through rough handling, dishwashers, swimming pools, etc. These labels can have a simple name printed on a plain background, or have fun colorful designs.

BACKPACKS and CASES

For backpacks, instrument cases, day packs, etc. durable Bag Tags are extremely useful.  Lots of backpacks and cases look identical on the campground and a Bag Tag can help identify the correct item at a glance. Available in lots of different designs, a few of these are great to have on hand.  (And can be used year-after-year!)

Need a Combination of Name Labels for Summer Camp?

VALUE PACKS

Many “value packs” come with a handy combination of labels for both clothing and hard items. From simple printed labels, to more extensive colorful camp packages, there are suitable labels for keeping track of virtually everything you need for summer camp!

Avoid the Lost & Found, and make sure valuable belongings come home with the camper!

 

 

 

 

From the Craft Corner: How a Handmade Festive Scarf Can Make the Perfect Present

Posted on

The holidays are almost here, and what better way to show your festive spirit than knitting a holiday scarf! You can choose to make one for yourself or for someone you love. Nothing says the spirit of giving like a handmade gift for a friend or family member.

A custom clothing label

Here we’ll discuss some of the reasons why a handmade scarf can be the ultimate holiday gift for your loved ones:

A Knitted Scarf is One-of-a-Kind

Anyone can go to a store and buy a mass-produced scarf to give to a friend or family member. Yet, when you make an effort to knit a scarf to give as a present, you’re imparting a personalized gift that’s truly unique and different from everything else. A handmade scarf is a great way to show someone how important they are in your life and the efforts you made to give them something truly special.

A Knitted Scarf is a Personalized Treasure

Long before mass-produced trinkets found their way onto store shelves across the country, many people would give exclusively crafted items to their friends and family to celebrate the holiday. Now, as it was in the past, a handmade knitted scarf presented as a gift is deeply personal. It shows you’ve dedicated your time and energy to crafting a scarf that suits the tastes of the person receiving it. 

A Knitted Scarf Lets You Do Something You’re Passionate About

Another reason to give a handmade scarf as a holiday present is that you have an opportunity to do something you’re passionate about. That way, the gift not only benefits the recipient but also you!

A Knitted Scarf May Be Less Expensive

The materials used to create a handmade scarf may be less expensive than actually purchasing a pre-made one at the store. So you can save money, as well as give unique and personalized gifts to the ones you love.

Don’t Forget the Label!
