At the beginning of the school year I create one page of labels for each student. Now before you start thinking- I can't do that, labels cost too much. I've got the solution. Head over to the Dollar store and find these labels.
I buy several packs at a time. I use them to label everything at the beginning of the year, coat hooks, notebooks, journals, pencil boxes, crayon boxes… You get the idea. They also work great for labeling children's artwork. When the project is finished just stick the label to the front corner.
If you can't locate them at your local Dollar Store you can purchase a case on-line. Just find a few coworkers to split the cost and you all will labels forever.
