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. When set, Sugru turns into a durable and flexible rubber that is also waterproof, so it lasts and lasts.

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.
