My Nametags approached us to review some of their stickers or iron-on labels a couple of months back. It didn’t take much persuasion as Kayla is a disaster for losing stuff, just like her mammy she’d forget her head if it wasn’t screwed on.
I choose the stickers as they stick to clothing labels, shoes and equipment. The iron-on labels only stick to clothes and textiles, and if I’m honest I haven’t used an iron in over a year. I couldn’t even tell you where it is. With the stickers, I can label her pencil-case, school bag, lunch box and beaker too.
We got 56 ‘Little Miss Chatterbox’ My Nametag stickers and personalised them with her first name. You can add a contact number or surname if you like. They measure just over an inch long and would have cost me €18.95. Post and packaging are free.
The website was easy to navigate, delivery was prompt and the stickers were effortless to apply. I like that they are waterproof, easily recognisable and can be personalised with different characters and even contact numbers if that’s what you choose. These stickers are machine washable and dishwasher safe too.
Although they will help my daughter recognise her belongings come September, I think they are very expensive. It’s a sheet of stickers after all, even if they have super staying power. The way I see it is if the big kid lost her pencil-case, school tie, lunch box and beaker it wouldn’t total up to the price of these stickers. Also if you have more than one child of school going age you cannot split the sheet of labels to save a few pennies, you would have to buy another sheet of nametags, costing close to forty quid. In four years time, it would cost me eighty blips just to label my kids belongings.
Personally, I think they are way overpriced. Next year I’ll just use my trusted Sharpie like always but if they tickle your fancy or if you want more information about them check out their website www.mynametags.ie.
