Labelling your children’s clothes. Love it or hate it? Nametags Giveaway

Are you a labeler or not? Do you spend hours sewing name labels on everything or simply scribble initials on the label?

I used to be a meticulous sewer on of name labels. Despite this, my son’s brand new school jumper with a sewn on label went missing, never to be seen again.

Now some school clothing comes with a space to simply write on the name and I take advantage when I can.

I know in some schools sending children in with unlabelled clothes is regarded as a heinous crime

When I was asked by mynametags.com to review these name labels and I jumped at the chance. There is a great selection of designs available from plain black and white to a seemingly endless combination of patterns, pictures and fonts. My daughters loved the Hello Kitty design and that they could choose their own font, colour and patterns.They were really simple to order and arrived quickly.

They are really simple to use. Simply stick to the items you want to label.
The website says “My Nametags new colour stickers, there is no need to either iron- on or sew on the name tags. You can just apply a sticker to the clothing washing label, and it will stay on in the wash again and again. What was once a chore is now a quick and easy job. Colour Stickers can also be stuck onto shoes, bags, DVDs, iPods and other equipment. They are dishwasher, microwave and steriliser proof.”

I’ve been testing them for four weeks now on water bottles and clothing that has had four washes so far (including an item of clothing I stuck a label on then put straight in the wash which is not what they recommend). My verdict is all the labels have stayed put so far and do not look worn. My daughters actually enjoyed labeling their own clothes, which has a great help! A friend who works in an elderly care home saw out stickers and is going to tell her employer about them as they are so easy to use and would really help in that setting.

  • my sister uses some name tags similar to these and they sound awesome! so entering ! #KCACOLS

  • I don’t need the tags myself, so haven’t entered the raffle, but they sound fab. I remember my parents back in the day spending hours and hours sewing on labels the weekend before we started a new school year.
    A solution that lasts, looks cute AND the kids want to help out with, sounds absolutely fantastic!! #KCACOLS

  • To be honest when I was a child my mum would always label everything including getting our names on our pencils, she was organised! I’d like to think I will be too! #kcacols

  • I use Tesco iron on ones at the minute, they’re driving me insane! I keep finding them in the washing machine haha. But even with name tags in I’ve still had 2 jumpers go missing also. Most annoying! They aren’t cheap lol. But these sound fabulous! #KCACOLS

  • I bought these for my boy’s school uniform and they are great. We need some more so would love to win some 🙂 #KCACOLS

  • It’s usually a bit of both pen and labels. This looks like a great giveaway – thanks for linking it to #kcacols and hope to see you again this weekend.

  • These sound great. Good luck to everyone who enters #KCACOLS

  • We don’t label anything… and we lose things all the time…. and we homeschool… so where is it all? These would be awesome if we did have to label. Did the kids find them pokey at all?? #KCACOLS

  • My mum used to label everything – now I think it’s a great idea!

  • I might just label my kid, might be easier. My mum never had time to label our stuff, so we argued over everything! #kcacols

    I’ve had the same problem with writing on the clothes labels and then then having items go missing. The tags would save a lot of stress

  • Kim Neville says:

    Perfect To label all my son’s school and sports items and clothes

  • The iron on label from the supermarket always come off so don’t work very well. Replacing missing uniform items because the label is lost can be very costly. These labels sound like the perfect solution.
