The small boy starts big school in September. Ok, so technically he’s just in nursery there, but they still need a uniform, so we’re busy buying jumpers, book bags, school shoes, polo shirts, baggy big boy trousers, and all the other bits he’ll need. One of the things I’m insisting upon is that all his uniform is labelled. He is bound to lose his jumper in a pile of other identical jumpers, and life is too short to be sewing on labels, I found the My Nametags website and they seemed like just what we needed.
The My Nametags website let’s you design your own colourful labels, so they stand out when you’re rifling though the lost property box. It’s really easy to do. Type in the name you want, choose the font and colour of your text, select an image (we went for a star, but they had all kinds of things to choose from) and select a background for your label. We liked the blue bubble background, but there are so many to choose from, and they’re really funky looking.
We went for the stickers which you just stick on clothing or items of equipment such as water bottles and pencil cases. If you wait 24 hours before washing your item the sticker will have had time to fully adhere itself to the clothing and should remain there forevermore.
I don’t think anything could be simpler. There is no sewing, no ironing, it’s just sticking a label on. It took me about 5 minutes to design and order the label, they arrived within a few days and it took about 10 minutes to label up his entire uniform. One set of My Nametags costs £11.95 plus £1 postage and packing, which seems like a good price to me, especially given how quick and easy they are to apply.
They’re fun, eye-catching, easy to use and seem to be good quality. I’d definitely recommend My Nametags and we’ll be going back for more once we’ve used these 56 labels up.
