It was 1999 and a farmer’s wife in Hampshire was surrounded by the chaos of three sons and all their clothes and belongings. Looking for a way to keep track of everything - one that didn’t involve hours of sewing - and with the birth of son number four, in April 2000, Melanie King launched Easy2name, her 5th baby!
The fundamental aim was to create reliable products that make parent’s lives that little bit simpler.
Starting out operating from Melanie’s spare room, and then from spare buildings on a farm, today Easy2name conducts from offices in Kingsclere under Avery Labels, sends name tags all over the world, and has thousands of 5* reviews on Feefo.
While location and size has changed, Easy2name’s core values definitely haven’t! Easy2name continues to offer excellent, friendly customer service, through the phone, email, or Live Chat. Our fantastic team strive to deliver quality products and fast service, with most of our range available to be dispatched the same day.
Easy2name continues to grow and expand, with new products regularly added in the hopes of helping parents save money and stay away from the lost property box, or endless hours spent searching for lost items!
Our products make belongings easy to label and therefore easy to find!
