Getting school-ready with My NameTags: Review plus Giveaway

I've always been one to plan ahead (sometimes far too ahead), but I prefer to have tried and tested rather than be done and dusted! So while I know Little Man won't start school till September, I can't help thinking about all the boxes he we have to tick to get school-ready (be able to dress themselves, eat an entire meal by themselves etc etc). And of course the big to-do list for me. One of which is labelling uniforms, jackets, lunch boxes and water bottles. So I thought I'll get ahead of the game and test some name tags and stickers (Little Man anyways needs his uniform and snack box labelled at nursery), so come September I'm not scuttling around finding the perfect name tag!


My Nametags
have been kind enough to give me two sets to try out – the stickers and the iron-ons – and I'm pleased to say "Job done!!!" The stickers were so easy to design online, arrived much quicker than expected (the next day – perfect if you're the last-minute kind of mum) and the iron-on ones have been a dream to well, iron on!

What are your choices?

There are a number of different types you can choose from, depending on your needs and budget. There are stickers and iron-ons in colour or black-and-white, though of course you can do a lot more with colour! There are also some specialised designs like Hello Kitty and Mr Men and Little Miss.

The colour stickers are the most versatile as they can be used on clothes, shoes, lunch boxes, water bottles and well, anything that lets you stick! (£11.95 + £1.00 delivery for 56 x Colour Stickers)

The colour iron-ons have a limited use (can only be used on clothes) but are worth it in the long run. They iron on to any clothing in a matter of seconds, and claim to have a 10 year washing guarantee. I haven't used mine for 10 years obvs but after three washes, they haven't creased or shredded at all and still look as good as new! (£11.95 per set of tags + £1.00 delivery for 56 x Colour Iron-on labels).

The black-and-white stickers are not suitable for clothing but are perfect for lunch boxes and bottles as they are dishwasher proof. (£11.95 + £1.00 delivery for 180 stickers)

The black-and-white iron-ons also have a 10 year washing guarantee and you can get 120 iron-on labels for £11.95 + £1.00 delivery.

There is also a mixed set of the black-and-white stickers and iron-ons (75 stickers and 75 iron-on labels for £11.95 + £1.00 delivery).

So whether you need a label for clothing, shoes, stationery, lunch boxes or water bottles, there is a name tag that fits the bill!

How do I choose my design?

It's really so simple and user-friendly (I let Little Man choose his own design)

1. Choose the type of tags you want

2. Type in your child's name (and additional details like telephone number if you wish)

3. Choose a font and font colour

4. Then choose from a wide range of designs from cars and trains to pirates and princesses; and butterflies and flowers to balloons and teddies

5. Lastly, choose a background pattern

So, would I recommend My Nametags?

I certainly would. Great product, great service and both Little Man and I are happy!

PS: You can use My Nametags for all these purposes…


Disclosure: I was given the name tags to review; however, all opinions are 100% my own.
