Labels for Camp

When you have someone going to camp, here is how to label their socks quickly and easily!

We recommend you label the sock on the sole with our short sized iron on labels. We offer two sizes with our iron on labels, so if you have a lot of socks, ask us to split a pack and include some short size for you.  As us in our comment section - available on all order pages.


Lay the sock flat on the ironing board and iron the label against the stretch, ie from toe to heel.  

Socks are one of the important items to label, not only for school uniforms, but for rest homes and for camps.  Children especially are taking their socks and shoes off for different activities and it is easy for items to get mixed up and misplaced.


Remember, socks are often BLACK and so using a marker or laundry pen won't work.

Our iron on labels have a white background with black font, so each name can easily be identified on the sock.

Labeling socks with Name It – Iron on Labels

All types of socks can be labelled eg woollen socks, cotton sports socks, polyester dress socks, school socks etc.  If you think the material will not take a direct iron, then use a piece of baking paper to protect the fabric.  But our ion on labels like direct heat. So if using kitchen baking paper, keep your heat up on the iron.  Or without baking paper, try SHORT bursts of heat that will not damage your fabric.  Press hard on your label.  Lift your iron.  Press hard again.  Repeat. 

Why should I label on the sole?

Iron it into place on the sole of the sock is our suggestion.  When the sock is paired up, it is easy to see the name as it sticks out!   

Can I have a smaller label for socks?

Yes - we can print you some smaller labels at 35mm only. You don't need a long label on socks, but you might want a longer label for the back of a school uniform shirt. Our standard length is 50mm.  This seems to suit most clothes as the label is clear and easy to ready.

But if you'd like us to include some shorter ones in your order, then let us know in the comment section.  So if you order a set of 100 - and ask us to include 20 sock size labels- no problem!  We will send you 80 standard size and 20 sock size. Just remember to ask us!
