How to Customize Kids School Supplies

When it’s time to go back to school, many kids look for ways to stand out and express their personality, from the clothes they wear to the school gear they choose. Personalized kids school supplies are a perfect way to make back-to-school essentials more fun, colorful and special. After all, if your kids need to carry them around every day, why not add some personality and make them more exciting to use? 

There are so many ways to customize school supplies for kids—here are a few that are perfect for all grade levels.

Ideas for Personalized Kids School Supplies

Say goodbye to boring notebooks, pencils and more with these cool ideas that are both simple and affordable.

  • Notebooks: Jazz up plain notebooks by getting ones with customized covers. Kids can find a design they love and make it their own by adding favorite quotes, sayings, and pictures. For kids who love a good DIY project, they can create their own notebook designs using craft paper, magazine clippings, stickers, stamps, paint pens, markers, and other embellishments. Either option is guaranteed to create one-of-a-kind notebooks that kids will love writing and doodling in.
  • Pencils and Pencil Cases: Kids won’t need to worry about getting their standard #2 pencils mixed up with someone else’s or losing their Disney pencil case when they have their name or nickname put on them. Take the customization a step further by adding a photo to the pencil case. With such stylish, personalized items, there will be no room for guessing who they belong to.
  • Textbook Covers: Book covers not only look pretty, but they’re also practical, as they help protect books from daily wear and tear. Buy one with a bold design or make one with fabric and basic crafting supplies and your kid’s books will stand out from the rest.
  • Backpacks: Kids will love wearing their back to school backpacks when they get to customize their own. Choose a design that best showcases their personality, from sports to animals to bright colors, patterns and more. Emblazon their name right on the front pocket for ultimate customization.

The opportunities for personalization in the Shutterfly Kids Collection are endless—these ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. From lunch boxes to laptop cases to bookmarks, your kids can find both big and small ways to express themselves at school.
