How to Make Your Own School Name Labels

How to Make Your Own School Name Labels

If you're in a pinch and you don't have time to buy school name labels, or you just want to save the money and make them yourself, here's a very easy way to do it!  (I'll also share a link at the end to a discount from a great company to buy them from if you'd rather not make your own!)

Talia got a new set of markers for school and was very excited about it. I wanted to label them, but didn't have any marker-sized name labels on hand.

So, I did something that anyone with a printer, some paper, and some tape could do ;)

How to Make School Name Labels Yourself

I started by typing her name in a word processor and printing it to make sure my size estimation would fit on the marker. When that worked out, I copied & pasted her name a few more times than I had markers (I had a feeling I'd need extras) and printed.

So far the labels are lasting well, and I have a feeling they'll stay on for a long time.
Even if they start to wear out though, it wouldn't be hard to re-do these.
