Getting Ready For The New School Year With My Nametags.

Getting Ready For The New School Year With My Nametags.

There is nothing quite as tedious as preparing the children for the new school year. Uniform shopping was something I hated as a kid, and both of my children have followed suit. Once all the uniform has been purchased, parents are then faced with the task of labelling each and every item. My Nametags takes the labour out of labelling with their wide range of personalised labels and tags.

It can be hard getting organised for when the kids go back to school. It’s even harder when there is two sets of uniforms to wash, iron and label. Theo is about to begin his second year at school, thankfully we made it through the first year without too many lost items. Mia is moving up to middle school. She will have to be far more independent than before. I really needed some eye-catching labels to make her supplies stand out so that she doesn’t leave anything lying around.

The best thing about My Nametags is that you can design your own labels and tags. The labels/tags are 100% water and wash-proof so you won’t lose labels and washing machines. It is easy to fit a house name, mobile or pupil number or class on the name tags/labels. Some customers put the name of the school their child attends on the labels to ensure any lost items are returned to the correct place. These tags/labels are also durable enough to be added to shoes.

Our labels were delivered swiftly and I was pleased to see that they were printed in exactly the same way I designed them. I chose the colour stickers rather than the iron on’s purely because I wanted the task at hand to be as easy and stress free as possible.

The colour stickers were easy to apply, so easy in fact that the kids helped! My Nametags really does take the stress out of labelling school items and I can’t thank them enough for helping me tick another job off my to-do list. I’d definitely recommend My Nametags to parents of school age children who are after fantastic service and fantastic items.
