School book labels January 2019

No child will be disorganised or "lose" their books this year with these labels firmly stuck on their exercise books.

Book labels are a godsend. Not only do they help your child organise their books, they can also be stuck onto pencil cases and lunchboxes to make sure that nothing of theirs goes astray during the school year.

Colourful and distinctive labels provide personality to their stationery and help them identify each at a single glace. Here's where you can buy the labels that will work wonders for their education this year.

Tips and tricks to buying book labels

Who knew buying book labels required so much work? Get it right and you'll be singing their praises through to Term 4.

  • Choose your label type - Label variety is extensive, with fill-in-your-own plain labels and customised print labels on the market. If you buy the fill-in-your-own it's way cheaper, but then, it's likely other people in your child's class will have the same or similar labels, which could lead to confusion. Customised labels however are a luxury, but they look good and bring out your child's personality.
  • Choose durability - The labels should last for the entire school year. Make it a point to go for high-quality stickers that don't fade too quickly.
  • Buy in bulk for cheaper labels - There will be a lot of books in your child's lifetime that need labelling. If you buy in bulk it'll be cheaper - but be aware that a kid could tire of the same label year in, year out.
