How to label your stuff with Sugru and rubber stamps

Whether it’s back to school or back to work, there are so many things to remember: sharpened pencils, new pens, shoes, oversized satchels, winter coats and … name tags.

Personalising your belongings is fun for you and the kids. Creative play we call it. Sugru Mouldable Glue bonds to almost anything – glass, metal, wood, ceramics and most plastics and fabrics – so you can pretty much put your name to anything.


Tools to emboss your stuff:

- DIY Rubber Stamp Printing Kit

- A single-use pack of Sugru (colour of your choice)

- A glass of soapy water

- Stuff you want to emboss (well, … it’s technically deboss)


And this is how you do it.


Step 1: Take a single-use pack of Sugru, pinch off a piece and rub onto the object you want to emboss. This creates your base layer.


Step 2: Pinch off another piece of Sugru and rub onto your base layer and make a smooth surface.


Step 3: Line up the letters you are going to use on the text plate.


Step 4: Dip letters into the soapy water.


Step 5: Press into the Sugru until you’ve left your impression.


Step 6: Leave to set for 12-24 hours. And there you have it.


Now you can adorn your favourite mugs … packed lunch boxes … pencil cases … clothing … toys … stationery … laptops and tools with a durable, rubbery, waterproof customisation!
