    marker for writing name on school clothes/bags/shoes/etc?

    hi!

    does anyone know where i can get this marker? Apparently I have to mark everything with my son's name (including water cup, etc) for his nursery classes.

    the teacher said i should use name stickers for some stuff like the cup but i'm trying to minimise costs by (hopefully) using one marker for everything?

    any suggestions would be much appreciated

    So far they didn't wash off, and you can write on plastic with them. They might fade a little bit with time... Maybe there are some special markers that you can find in kids shops, didn't really checked.

    The pen from the Stationary Store is called the Zebra Name Pen and writes on most surfaces. We also make the stickers from a store in Causeway Bay, behind Sogo. Cost is $30 for 72 and we put them on water bottles

    Here's the website

    thanks rani, do the stickers wash off the cups/bottles? or are they water resistant?

    i'll go get the zebra name pen first then, as i haven't labelled any of his uniforms and school starts monday!

    They r water resistant but the name does fade out after a year or so. But we make new ones ever year with his new class details.
