About Us

Common Sense Products began in 1983, and for more than 30 years we have been helping families stamp their clothes for camp, school, nursing care, and much more. To the best of our knowledge, we created the first self-inking permanent ink stamp—over time the industry has followed suit, and nowadays there are stamp products and services for every purpose imaginable. We, however, only offer one type of stamp… The NAME-DROPPER clothing stamp.

Effective, easy to use, and available for both light and dark clothing, the NAME-DROPPER stamp has stood the test of time…by saving yours. Years ago it was a daunting task to sew name tapes into each piece of clothing, and it could take hours for a summer’s worth of camp clothes. Marking pens were just too messy, bleeding through fabric unintelligibly or washing out right away. The NAME-DROPPER Stamp cuts that time down to minutes, leaves a crisp, clear, long-lasting mark that won’t show through, and re-applies easily when the time comes—meaning you can have a trunk load of clothes marked and ready to go with ease.

When we started the company, it was about helping camps and schools to reduce their piles “Lost & Found” and ease the headache of sorting through unmarked, nearly identical clothing to recover belongings. That is just as true today as it was over 30 years ago, and now there is an increased financial factor—things still get lost, and they haven’t gotten any cheaper. Especially with the high-tech fabrics used in modern athletic and leisure clothing alike, replacing lost items can get expensive. Between the time and the money this little stamp can save you, it’s easy to see why so camps from California to Maine recommend NAME-DROPPER to all their families.

We’ve been in the business of stamping clothes for long enough to know what does and doesn’t work. Stamping a cotton T-shirt may be a “no-brainer,” but some sport fabrics or thick, rough materials are more of a challenge. We pride ourselves in offering solutions for marking almost any clothing, so please don’t hesitate to call or email us before you buy—or after you run into something interesting! 

Finally, we have always been proud to stand by our work, and that’s why we have had a “No-Questions-Asked” One Year Return Guarantee policy since the beginning… and we always will.
