What Are The Best Clothing Labels?

Posted on

For families sending a loved one out into a group environment — whether it’s getting kids ready for school or helping an elderly family member adjust to an assisted living situation — one of the most important things they will need to do is make sure their loved ones’ belongings are properly identified. Here at It’s Mine! Labels, people are always asking us which types of clothing labels are best for these situations where they need to label individual items of clothing or personal belongings with the names of their loved ones. It’s a question we get a lot, and it’s one that we’re more than happy to answer.

The simple answer is that there’s no better place to find clothing labels for every need and situation than It’s Mine! Label – we have a suitable label or tag for virtually everything. Our personalized clothing tags and labels are the perfect choice for families, crafters and small businesses that need to add a personal touch to their clothing and belongings. We have a wide selection of sew-in labels, iron-on labels and other types of personalized clothing labels — all offered in an extensive array of colors, designs and icons to help customers find the precise match for whatever they need. Yet with so many types of labels to choose from, it can be difficult for families trying to select the right type of clothing label for their loved ones’ exact situation. For kids entering school, a colorful personalized label with a fun design might be desired, but for adults in senior living, a durable easy-to-read custom label would be more appropriate. If you’re in need of clothing labels but don’t quite know where to begin, here are some tips to help you make the most informed decision.

Choosing Clothing Labels for Kids

Kids can enter school with a lot of anxieties. They may be concerned about making friends, being separated from their families or getting good grades. Parents of kids entering school have a lot of anxieties, too. For example, they may be worried that their kids will come home from school with less of their belonging than they left the house with in the morning. Younger kids especially aren’t always good about keeping an eye on their belongings. In the fun and excitement of the school day, their valuable clothes, coats, backpacks and other essential belongings can be mixed up with their classmates’ things, and even left behind altogether. Having all of those items labeled can be a big help for getting those lost and misplaced items returned.

We generally recommend tagless labels or our smooth printed iron-on clothing labels for kids’ clothing and belongings because they’re easy to apply and many kids don’t like the feeling of a clothing tag on the backs of their necks. Our standard iron-on labels can be emblazoned with your child’s name, homeroom number or any other vital information you want. We also offer “fun” labels that feature a wide selection of colors or kid-friendly designs. For clothing that has a satin care tag, we have a small clothing label that simply sticks to this – and stays on in the wash! For other types of belongings, such as pencil cases and lunchboxes, It’s Mine! Labels also offers a wide variety of water proof stick-on clothing labels for school that are durable enough to stay on even when put through the dishwasher. Plus, these labels are still colorful and customizable to help your child express his or her identity.

Choosing Clothing Labels for Seniors

Helping an elderly family member transition to senior living can be difficult for many families, but it can help to know that your elderly loved one’s clothing and belongings are labeled with his or her name and other vital information. The nature of communal living means personal items can be mixed and confused easily. That’s why It’s Mine! Labels offers numerous types of clothing labels for seniors to help keep their belongings from being misplaced or lost.

For adult clothing, we recommend a label that is easy to read, but is tough enough for the nursing home laundry. Our trusted iron on printed labels are very popular, but our woven clothing labels can offer a more traditional feel for older customers. These embroidered labels are available as sew-in labels or iron-on labels, depending on your application preference. The iron on labels apply in seconds, but the sew-on labels can easily be removed if required. If you don’t know how to sew, you can take them to a seamstress or tailor to have them sewn into the clothing.
