Our print system is fully automated, which means that whatever text is printed onto one label within a pack is printed onto ALL of the labels within that pack – so you cannot split a pack between different names.
What can I put on My Name Labels
HOWEVER, we are more than happy for customers to get a bit creative with the text they request, so that they WILL be able to share a pack between two or more members of their family.
In fact, we’ve even got a few pointers to get you started!
- Enter A Surname Only
If you simply enter your surname, the labels can be shared by ALL members of your family. Customers who choose this option often like to add “Family Surname” (or “Surname Family”) to the top line and then add a contact phone number to the bottom line.
- Enter A Surname & An Initial Only
Obviously, this only works if your children share the same initial but this is a quick and easy way to make your name labels more personal than just entering the surname only.
- Enter A Surname Only & Request A Blank Line
As long as you use a suitable pen (such as a laundry pen) you can choose to write on your name labels; if you add a blank space to the top line and add your surname to the bottom line, you will receive a set of name labels that you can split in any way you like simply by writing in the name that you need a name label for.
- Enter One Name On The Top Line And One Name On The Bottom Line
By entering a full name on each of the two lines, you can then cut your labels in half to create individual labels for two names. You will need to take care when cutting the labels and we recommend avoiding this option if you need to include long names (e.g. double-barrelled surnames), as this will significantly reduce the font size that is used to print your labels.
- Enter Initials & Surname Onto One Line
If you enter the first initial (or short name) followed by a surname followed by the second initial (or short name), you can create individual labels by cutting off one of the initials (or names).
- Enter All Of The Names & Share!
Some of our customers choose to enter both first names on the top line (e.g. “Name 1 or Name 2” or “Name 1 & Name 2”) and the surname on the bottom line, so that lost items can be returned to the right family (albeit maybe not with the right child!).
