Our personalised PE bags and swim bags are extremely popular and I am often asked if I would provide an example of the fonts available, so I thought it would be a good idea to to embroider examples for you.
Choice of font is a very personal decision but here are few tips to help you
Arial font is a simple, easy to read block lettering. It is by far the most popular choice for nursery and starting primary school as it is the font used in school first readers.
Times Roman is a more decorative bolder font, similar to newspaper headlines. It can look smart and formal and is often chosen for older children. It looks particularly smart on plain coloured swim and PE bags. This font also works particularly well for initials all in capital letters.
Script font is a fancy joined up handwriting look font. It is very pretty but can be less easy for very young children to read. It also does not work very well if you want the name or initials in capital letters.
Please ensure you take care when entering the name to be sewn when placing your order. Sometimes, particularly when using tablets and mobile devices, it is not clear when CAPS LOCK has been left on. The name can then accidentally appear on your order all in capital letters. The name will be sewn as entered so please check.
If you are still unsure as to what font to choose please contact us. We can email you computer generated outline images of your chosen name in each font.
