Can anyone recommend stickers for kit bags?

I have bought DS a kit bag for his hockey keeping kit which he has to take to school (can’t use school kit due to Covid). I want to put his initials on it and just wondered if there were any way of doing this myself like the hot press ones they do for football shirts etc. I don’t want to use a sharpie!

Try heat press vinyl. Locally we have lots of people selling it, I'm sure they would make you the initials to iron on.

Thank you, I’ll Google and see if anyone round here has it.

I've got a white pen (a bit like tippex) that I use to write names on bags, shoes etc much better than labels

I’m trying to think ahead, it’s an expensive bag and I may want to sell on so want something that can be removed but not too easily IYKWIM? I need the initials on the outside so it’s obvious it’s his. If it was internal I’d just use a pen.

I've ordered from ebay previously. It's still going strong.

Have you got a Decathlon store? They do printing onto t-shirts so might be able to do a kit bag. Some of the iron on lettering doesn't work on nylon / technical fabric (or it sticks but peels off easily).

Yes we have got a Decathlon, do you think they will print on something you didn't buy from there?

I have bought some on Amazon but if there's a proper shop service them I'm up for that.
