Back to school with Petit Ferdinand

Eliza labels

We are three weeks in to the school summer holiday’s and my thoughts have started to turn towards getting ready for the new term.

Having got three children through school already, I have a good idea of what I need to buy new and what can be recycled for a new term or handed down and I try to save money wherever possible.

One of my pet hates, but something that needs to be done is labelling uniform, bags and shoes as I have lost count of the number of times one of my kids has come home with odd shoes on, forgotten a jumper or swapped a lunchbox.

Labelling uniform used to be a really laborious task – do you remember the sew in labels that used to take ages to stitch in properly so they could not be easily ripped or cut out?

Now you can customise iron-on labels, stick-on clothing labels and adhesive name labels to quickly identify clothes, school supplies, personal belongings with Petit-Ferdinand.

Not only are their labels 100% personalised, but they are washing machine and tumble dryer resistant for real staying power.

I opted for a value pack which contains 140 labels:

Petit Ferdinand

For clothes:

  • 20 stick-on labels
  • 20 iron-on labels (1 line of text)

For objects:

  • 40 Mini item stickers
  • 30 item stickers (1 line)
  • 20 item stickers (2 lines)
  • 10 shoe labels


These labels are easy to customise and the kids loved getting to choose their own designs and colours.

The labels took just 48 hours to arrived and the best bit is – apart from the iron on labels, they had a blast sticking the stickers in their uniform themselves. It’s the perfect rainy day activity!

    These look fab! Name labels used to be such a chore – I can remember my mum spending hours labelling all our clothes. My kids will love these (and so will I)!

    It’s so much easier to iron on than it is to sew on – this is brill!

  5. These look brilliant and exactly what I need, I can’t sew! Thank you, will be ordering.

  7. It is great that they arrived within 48 hours, that is great service! The labels really do look great quality.

  8. Sticky name tags, take me back to the primary school era, great memories. Fab idea these labels and like how you can design them – much more funky x

  9. My mum hated labelling our school uniform when me and my brother were kids as it was such a labour intensive task but these look like cool labels x

    I resorted to permanent marker on clothing tags last year as also with three at home just didn’t have the energy for the evils of sewing tags in. Going to be heading to the petit ferdinand site though now to check these out as they look even easier than permanent marker.

  11. Laura Dove says:

    We love this range too! The kids love that they can be personalised with their choices of colours and icons!

  12. These labels look really easy and quick – we’ve yet to order ours so going to hunt these down instead x

  13. I love the labels and that there is a range of options. This reminds me I need to get some in for the new uniform I just bought x

    These labels are so cute and it’s perfect that they are fully customization! Long gone are the days when the name tags used to be boring, black text on white 🙂
