*This post is in association with My Name Tags
With the children now enjoying their Christmas break (or about to), it gives us parents the chance to sit down and reorganise everything.
Joshua’s preschool has a uniform, although it is optional we have found that it saves so much hassle compared to wearing his own clothes. But with so many children wearing the same items, and many in the same sizes, it can get a bit confusing. Joshua will often take his jumper off during the session and it is only a matter of time before someone loses track of it. There have also been many times where he has come out wearing second hand clothes they provided due to an accident, or a parent has accidentally taken items from Joshua’s peg.
Just like every other toddler, Joshua is a huge fan of Paw Patrol; so, of course, almost everything he owns is the same as his classmates. The same bag, hat, coat, umbrella… you name it. Nightmare!
And that’s where My Name Tags come in…
My Name Tags
When I was approached to try out some of My Name Tags iron-on stickers, admittedly I had never thought about using them. I kinda assumed I wouldn’t need them until he’s at primary school – WRONG! I quickly realised that in the year since Joshua has been going to preschool, we have already lost his clothing several times.
My Name Tags sent me two sets of their personalised labels – both the iron-on ones and stickers, which both serve different purposes. The stickers are only suitable for items that wouldn’t get put through the wash, such as pencil cases, bags, water bottles etc.
So far, I have put the iron-on labels onto Joshua’s uniform, shoes, wellie boots and coat. Since labelling his uniform it has been washed several times and they are well and truly stuck in place! The same goes for all of the other items too.
I have also used the stickers for Joshua’s bag, water bottle and inside of his trainers, which have stayed in place perfectly.
What Do You Get
When placing an order, you get to select how many labels you would like but the minimum you will receive is 56 personalised labels. When designing the labels, you get to choose from a huge range of colours, patterns, icons and even select from a few different fonts too. The order process is incredibly fast, and I had my labels designed and ordered within a few minutes!
When you get your order, if you order iron-on labels you will also be sent some parchment paper to help with attaching them.
I am impressed and would recommend My Name Tags to any parent out there with school-aged children. The items have been washed a lot and have not faded one bit, the same goes for Joshua’s water bottle – it has been washed up every night and it is still holding on. Now that I have tested the labels out myself, I would genuinely not shop anywhere else for name tags! I shall be ordering another batch once Joshua hits primary school age too.
