    Default Hood labeling...

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I apologize if it's misappropriated.

    Our entire firehouse was issued new hoods due to the 10yr standard. We ordered all black so that they would not be confused for the white/tan ones we had prior.

    We got to talking about labeling them and was curious if embroidery or getting name strips sewn on would cause any issues with the garment?

    Just go get a silver Sharpie and write your names on them. That is how I labeled mine at work.

    We have used a white marker to label our names, pretty simple so far has worked. Now some people have had their name sewed in.

    Maybe one of those Clorox bleach markers would work. If not, silver Sharpies are awesome. You can write on water with those.

    Silver sharpy is the way to go. You can mark almost any dark colored item with it.
