Before Mia started Preschool I had never even thought about tagging her clothes, shoes and bags. As soon as she was about to start I suddenly had flashbacks of my mum sat endlessly stitching name labels into our school uniform and felt a sudden panic as I can’t sew for toffee! The organising of back to school can seem really overwhelming, Tahnee’s Blog has some great organisation tips to get everyone back to school successfully!
I knew I was in trouble so ended up googling easier alternatives. At the time, the easiest way for me to get Mia’s name on her shoes, coat and bag quickly and cheaply was to buy a fabric pen and write it on myself but once I had done it, I wasn’t happy with how untidy it looked and how the pen didn’t write quite as clearly as I wanted it to. Soon after that, I saw that My Name Label were looking for reviewers of their personalised name labels combination packs, I was really interested in finding out if they had the variety I was looking for, for Mia.
I’m a big supporter of local businesses as well as women in business so I was even more interested to learn that My Name Label, which started in 1998, is now a global franchise business owned by local women all over the world. The business was started with an aim to create personalised labels that were; brighter, more varied, and included fun graphics. Their philosophy has always been to ‘keep things simple, both in terms of label design and product range.’ We were lucky enough to be able to personalise a sample pack of labels with a combination of different labels inside.
School Uniform Tagging
The order process on the My Name Label website is really simple and easy. It is a 5 step process with previews along the way and selections that can be swapped and changed as you go along. The instructions are really clear and easy to follow, with a preview of your design shown on the top right-hand corner of your screen.
You can even pick little cute graphics to add to your labels. I found this really useful when Mia was very little and was only just learning to recognise her name written down.
The labels are posted first class for no extra charge and they arrived so quickly so are perfect if you need them in a rush! I’m so happy with how the labels look, the design is so cute and the lettering really clear so will be easy to differentiate from a distance on Preschool/school pegs. The variety of the labels available to order means that there is a label that fits and suits any type of clothing or shoe. The labels can be applied to almost anything; from bags to lunchboxes, clothes to stationary! They are really versatile.
There is the option of iron or stick on labels which is handy if you prefer one or the other. As a first time parent, I found this combination pack really useful as I wouldn’t know where to start with labelling up Mia’s bits and bobs as it’s not something I have ever had to do before. The labels stick on really easily to clothing or shoes and have lasted a really long time! They come with clear instructions on the packet so you know what to do with them!
As well as the labels, My Name Label also do bag tags which come in the same design ordered as the labels. It’s a lovely tag and would fit any size bag well. Also really handy if another child has the same bag, as you will be able to spot your child’s really easily as it now stands out!
I was so pleased with how the name labels came out and I ordered more for Mia’s school uniform when I ran out. There are so many different ways to personalise your labels, with lots of options to choose from and they are really great value! I was sent a sample pack however packs start from £16 and go up to their combination ‘Mega Pack’ at £42 containing everything you need to kit your child out ready for school!
I have also tried out other ways of school uniform tagging ready for new new school term!
