When everything starts to look the same, you know that there is a problem. This isn’t a philosophical conversation though, it’s a modern day problem, and something that many of you will struggle with daily. The “things” in question are simple, they are the belongings and clothing of your children, and you know very well how everything can so easily blend into one, especially when you’re looking at one big pile of clothes.
Clothing labels are a simple, easy and straightforward way of ensuring that your child’s belongings stay with, and come back to that child.
So here we look at clothing labels for all your 2019 needs and how in the New Year you can start off on a positive foot. It’s time to be making the right mark, so if you’re someone who is fed up of rifling through mounds and piles of clothes and belongings and basically having to guess whether or not they really belong to your child at all, then read on. Life is about to become a whole lot easier for you!
The biggest problem has to of course be school uniform and kit. By its very name it all looks the same! Let’s not worry you about why it that is, it just is. So if you’re sat pulling jumpers and shirts from a pile of clothes, or sorting out the washing after a long day, how can you possibly make sure that what you are holding belongs to one of your children at all, never mind which of your children owns it! But to the most frustrating and difficult of problems, there is often the simplest and most straightforward solutions. Here, it is the humble clothing label.
There are clothing labels for all your 2019 needs. You can really start the New Year with a fresh approach. Clothing labels are a simple, easy and straightforward way of ensuring that your child’s belongings stay with, and come back to that child. Moreover it means that you will not be potentially doing the washing for the whole rugby team just to make sure that you get the right shirt back!
Kids throw things around, they leave them on the floor, they mix them up with similar items (just think of the changing rooms), and they often get a little careless in ensuring that what they take to school, they bring right back. Clothing labels may seem a little simplistic, but that is exactly their beauty. Without having to hold up every garment to check the size and look each item up and down, you can just turn to the label and if your child’s name is there, then that’s it, job done!
The other benefit from labels may be a little less obvious. Think about it from your child’s perspective. If they are given clothes to wear that look exactly the same as everybody else’s, then there is nothing to differentiate their particular garment and thus there is no more “value” to their jumper than there is to any of the hundreds of others.
What a label does is to give a sense of ownership, of individualism and of pride. Suddenly the garment isn’t like everybody else’s, it is unique and with this comes the chance that it will be treated more carefully and respectfully. You are empowering your children with this sense of belonging and this is an important lesson for them to learn in life. When an item becomes “theirs” rather than just another one, it is different, special and personal.

But labels you’re thinking, are just a name, can they really be all that meaningful? Yes they can! Even better is that the clothing labels for all of your 2019 needs doesn’t mean only names. The labels themselves can be as bespoke and individual as your child’s name. They can feature graphics relating to interests or hobbies and they can made to reflect the character and individual nature of your child. Think of a skull and crossbones for the young pirate, an alien for the stargazer or a rugby ball for the sporty. Making the labels themselves customized, means that that whole sense of ownership and pride is intensified and the chances that the garments will be better looked after also increases dramatically.
The New Year often brings hope that the year ahead can be different, better and more enjoyable. Of course it won’t just happen automatically, it will take time and a little effort on your part! But when you see just how even the smallest amount of effort, through the use of clothing labels and similar “hacks”, can make such a big difference to everyday life, you’ll soon be wondering why you didn’t start making the right mark earlier on. Happy stamping!
