How do you call stick on labels for lunch boxes and water bottles?

I need labels which I could stick to my child's water bottle, lunch box and may be even shoes. What do I look for? I need something affordable with free P&P. Could not find anything on amazon.

our school use these www.easy2name.com/ as a fundraiser, we bought name labels from them as we have unusual-ish surname and dc's are in a small school - the stick on bottle/lunch box ones work really well, they have bag name tags but we got shoe ones from local shoe shop

Thank you. I just could not remember any of the websites and the amazon does not sell anything like that. I see that some websites recommend Stikins, a kind of super labels.

I write on their bottles and boxes with permanent marker. Way easier.

Depends what the water bottle and lunchbox things are made of.

I got some labels (sorry can't remember what) that stuck on that were recommended a couple of years ago. They stuck fine on the little boxes that i use to put different things in for ds's lunch but came off his actual lunch bag. They also slid off his water bottle really quickly.

These days I use a sharpie to label his water bottle every day as it seems to rub off the surface. I've also scratched the name into the bottles as a permanent name. But having his name written on too means that he can see it easily when it is time to grab it at break etc.

I keep a dedicated sharpie with all the little boxes and water bottles so it is always to hand and there to use. Plus have an extra one in the car in case of late morning emergencies!

I have ordered 50 labels for £5.00 with £0.99 for P&P. I have never had stick on labels so I really hope they do work. They say they are washable. Well, I guess they can say a lot but the time will show.

Is that sharpie pen is really that good? How long does it stay?

Easy2name or name it labels.

The adhesive ones I got off easy 2 name have survived going in the washing machine (on lunchbox) several times so far.

I still have easy 2 name labels on my little baby pots from my DD10, DD4 is annoyed that she gets older DDs name on her pots, so happy to say they stay stuck on in the dishwasher for years and years smile Just make sure your tub is clean when you stick it on

I have bought from them 4 times. They do shoe and general sticky labels for property on the same sheet. I think they're very good.

We use easy2name and so far it works fine. They do extra cover labels for the shoes.
