I hate when nameplates on desks start to look bad and the tape starts to roll and get dirty, Here is an idea to solve that problem. Laminate the name tags and use velcro to attach them to the desk. This makes them easy to change as they get old.
To help you out here is a set of 26 nameplates for student desks. They are all different themes using Thistle Girl Design graphics. There is enough variety to be able to change name tags every week. I've done the work and you take the credit for how cute they are.
