FAQ – Can I Have Special Characters Printed On My Name Labels?

We often have customers getting in touch with us because they want to know if they can include special characters in their order – whether they’re looking to make their labels a bit more fun with a picture or they want to include accented characters in one or more of the names – so here’s a quick fire guide to what we can and cannot print.

Special Characters/Pictures/Emojis: NO
Our system is only able to process and print standard alphanumerical characters and punctuation marks. We cannot print any sort of picture or image, whether in the specific form of an emoji or a special character that creates a shape or image.

Emoticons: SOME
While we cannot print image based emoticons, we are able to reproduce the more traditional emoticons based on punctuation marks (and text); so if you’ve picked up the art of emoticons along the way then you can, of course, add in some punctuations marks to add a bit of fun to your (>^__^> name labels! <^__^<)

Accented Characters: SOME
