At the beginning of the school year like most parents up and down the country I purchased those silly name tags that you iron into clothes. So on the first day of term Roo had all of her school clothes nicely labelled, in the hopes that she wouldn’t manage to lose anything. At the weekend I started my usual load after load of washing to find that all my hard work simply washed out. A good 75% of the labels I had stood ironing into her uniform had come off in the wash, I was not best pleased!
So when Stamps Direct offered me the opportunity to try out their Clothing Marking Kit I wondered whether this would stand up to the challenge.
- Self-inking Stamp
- 256 4mm reusable characters
- 3yds of thermo-adhesive ribbon
- 10ml of textile ink
- Impression size: 38 x 14mm max
Setting the stamp up for the first time was a little fiddly using the tweezers and arranging the rubber characters in the correct order. Once I’d done Roo’s first name I started to get the hang of it and it became much easier to place the letters.
Once you have added the characters required you have to ink the stamp pad for the first time. I would advise using disposable gloves for this as I’m not too sure how well the ink would wash off hands.
