My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels are a brand new product from My Nametags. They are the world’s first fully personalised full colour stickers to label almost everything, including clothes.
But how do they stand up in real life? We tested them to find out.
The My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels have a lovely selection of pictures to choose from, from teddies and ducks to stars, flowers, animals and music. Although primarily aimed at children for nursery or school, many of the designs would be suitable for adults who needed them for uniforms or for use in care homes. There is also a lovely selection of seasonal designs for Christmas.
Once you have chosen your design you can then choose your background image, from a choice of designs including some cute Christmas ones or there is choice of 24 plain colours too. Finally you can choose the lettering style of your labels, from a range of six different fonts.
You can add just a single one-word name or add up to 3 lines of text, depending on how much information you need to add to your label. You probably could not fit your whole address on the label but you could certainly fit a telephone number.
The great thing is that you can play around with the lettering on the website while you are ordering and try out any combination of names and wording and you can see immediately what it will look like.
Most importantly, how did the My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels stand up to everyday use?
On clothing the stickers must be stuck to the label of the garment that you wish to name. I can confirm that my stickers have survived several trips through the washing machine already and have remained firmly attached with no peeling and no fading of the design at all, meaning that they are completely readable.
I also used some of the My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels to name my children’s lunchbox items and they have survived several weeks of daily washing up, and again they look as good as when they were first applied.
The final test was in the dishwasher. Yes! The stickers stayed put in the dishwasher without peeling, fading or wrinkling.
I would certainly use My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels next time I need to get stickers for my kid’s lunchboxes, and the fact that they can be used just as well on clothing makes them, I think, extra useful. It is great fun to be able to personalise them too.
My Nametags also make Iron-On Nametags for clothing and Classic Stickers in basic black and white, which can also feature an optional design.
My Nametags Colour Sticker Labels cost £9.95 for a set of 56 colour stickers and are available from www.MyNametags.com.
