Labelling Tips for a Safe and Successful Return to School

Your kids have been out of their regular routines for quite some time now. Through the COVID-related school closures and the lazy, hazy days of summer, they've most likely gotten a little rusty at keeping track of their belongings.

Whether it’s school supplies, lunchboxes, clothing, shoes and backpacks, labelling their personal items helps them take good care of their stuff, and ensures they’re not using other kids’ things – something that’s more important now, than ever.

Here are a few ways labelling can personalize your children’s key back to school items:

Label your school supplies

“We’d be happy to label every single item”, said no parent ever! This year it will be more important than ever to keep track of your child’s school supplies. Take the fuss out of back to school labelling with the Brother P-touch CUBE and TZe laminated tapes to easily print customized long-lasting labels for everything on their school supplies list. Easy to use on your mobile device, the Brother’s Design&Print app lets you pick from loads of predesigned templates or create and save your own symbols, 60+ frames and a variety of fonts. With smartphone features like spell check and voice to text, this label maker epitomizes intuitive labelling at its best!

Lunchbox labelling

Think things like water bottles, thermoses and food containers that get washed day after day will also need to be labeled. Because they’re water resistant, Brother tapes make great labels for your kids’ lunchbox essentials. They will stay stuck for the whole school year! They’re also resistant to chemicals making them perfect for use on hand sanitizer bottles or on surfaces where disinfectant wipes are used…things that have become part of everyday life.

Name tagging

If you have any hopes of seeing your kids’ clothing come home from school, you need to label every last piece! Brother’s TZe-FA3 iron-on tape, will help you create cloth name tags with blue text that you can easily iron on to all their clothing and any fabric items. They make identifying belongings a breeze even when they wind up at the lost and found!

We know the return to school can be a little overwhelming in regular circumstances, never mind in the middle of our “new normal”. With Brother at your side, we hope you’ll feel a little more in control of this transition back to school. Wishing you and your family a great academic year ahead!
