What are Name Bubbles, and Do They Really Work?
We recently received some personalized name labels from Name Bubbles to review, so I wanted to share our experience with you today.
If you’re not quite sure what Name Bubbles are, let me enlighten you! They’re some of the easiest to use and strongest-sticking customizable name labels — oh, and they’re waterproof.
This means that you can stick them to your kids’ clothing or lunch containers, run them through the washing machine or dishwasher, and they’ll come out as good as new.
If you’re looking for high quality name labels for school, daycare, summer camp — or even write-on labels for organizing the pantry — you can either head over to their online shop or continue reading my review.
(By the way, you might want to read to the end because I was able to nab a special discount code for my readers!)
Without delay, let’s move right along and talk a little bit about the ordering process, design options, how to use Name Bubbles, and more.
We received free labels from Name Bubbles in exchange for a review.
Name Bubbles Review
The ordering process for Name Bubbles is pretty simple. The most difficult part, in my opinion, is deciding on just one of the cute design options!
You’ll begin by selecting the type of label you need. A few examples:
- Clothing labels
- Contact labels
- Shoe labels
- Medical labels
- Write-on labels
You can also order value packs with a variety of labels for school, daycare, etc. (which we’ll go over shortly) if you need more than one type of size.
Then you’ll choose from one of numerous sticker designs and customize them with a name and font type. When you type a name into the box, you’ll see exactly what your label will look like once it’s been printed.
Once you receive your Name Bubbles, you can get started labeling everything! Simply peel the sticker off the sheet and place it on the item.
With the clothing labels, you have a few options:
- Press-and-stick labels for clothing tags
- Press-and-stick labels for brand stamps
- Iron-on clothing labels
We ordered a couple different types of Name Bubbles to test out: the Kindergarten value pack and some rectangular write-on labels.
My daughter will be starting Kindergarten in the fall, so I thought this value pack would be perfect for us. I tested them out on some jackets, her shoes, a water bottle, and a notebook.
I even ran the jackets and water bottle through the wash to see if they really are waterproof.
Name Bubbles name labels truly did come out as good as new. The good news is that, when you’re ready to remove them, you can simply peel them off and you’re left with no sticky residue.
Pro Mom Tip: Don’t apply the clothing labels directly to the fabric, or even to a ribbed fabric tag, or it won’t stick in the wash. Instead, look for one of those silky care tags to place it onto.
We also tested out the write-on labels for organizing some of the activity bins I put together for my girls.
I had previously printed out some of my own labels on printer paper, but never got around to laminating them, so they were in pretty bad shape.
These labels came with a pencil that you can use to write on your labels, then wipe them off as needed.
The pencil is a little on the large side, which made it slightly difficult to write neatly, but it did the job — and I was able to wipe it clean and re-write when I needed to.

Before hearing of Name Bubbles, I’d never thought to order personalized name labels for my kids’ belongings. In fact, I’ve always labeled them with their initials using a permanent marker.
(My plan for passing down clothing from my big girl to my little: Carefully change the initials ‘KM’ to ‘RM’ on everything. Hey, I thought it was a brilliant idea!)
Now that I have Name Bubbles in my life, there’s no going back. I’ll definitely be ordering a Preschool Pack to label my second kiddo’s things when she starts preschool!
