Stamptastic Review 

About Stamptastic

Stamptastic is our “baby”!

We are 2 busy Mums with 6 children under the age of 13 and we were totally fed up with the current labelling options out there!

Somehow, we could never find the time (or inclination!) to sew in or iron on labels and so decided to find an alternative, we wanted to create something that we could use on everything our children could lose, from swimming hats to rulers.

Stamping is so quick and simple that we decided to start with a personalised stamp and then source an ink that is usable on a wide variety of materials.

After almost a year in the planning, trying to fit meetings in around school, nursery and various after-school activities, Stamptastic was born! We love Stamptastic and hope you will too. Francesca & Emma 

A personalised stamp usable on most fabrics, metal, wood & some plastics.
No more sewing or ironing on labels. No more losing your pencil case or P.E. kit!

Now you can just stamp everything!

Transparent block for accurate, easy positioning.

We love stamptastic! So So easy to use! I have shown you photos of one with Sharon on but I also got one for both Harry and Jack (I don’t want to reveal their full names) and they’re super easy to use and long lasting.

Well long lasting as in I stamped a top and washed it a couple of times. I will update this blog after a few months of school use and more washes later in the year.

My favourite part is how they’re transparent so really easy to stamp accurately.

Fred’s Box Subscription Box Review 

I recently discovered Fred’s Box and they very kindly sent us Harry one to try out. He didn’t know he was receiving it so was super excited when he had some post that was just for him!

I could go on about good it is but instead I will show you the video of Harry opening the box and his reaction!

*Spoiler* He loved it.

 

*We were sent a box free of charge but not asked to write this review. All words and opinions are my own.

My Name Tags Giveaway

Our Philosophy

European National Champion award 2014/15

Since we started in 2004, we have focused on making the absolute best nametags possible. Some of the things that we are proud of are:

  • Our 10 year washing guarantee is unmatched in the name tags industry.
  • Our almost 100% customer satisfaction rating is also unmatched among label companies.
  • We have been independently tested to have the best labels in the UK.
  • Our colour sticker labels stay on clothing better than any other labels we know of.

We were kindly sent some My Name Tags for Harry and Jack. I need some for Harry because he goes back to school in September and Jack will need some when he starts nursery.

My name tags come in either stick form or iron on. And they can be completely personalised. I chose my children’s name with a logo that reflects them. A digger for Harry because he’s mad on them and a truck for Jack because he always points them out.

The website is super easy to use and they were delivered within a couple of days.

Obviously I’ve not had a chance to really test them out but they were easy to apply and do seem like they will last. After a good few months of school, I will update this post!

I have been lucky enough to have a set as a giveaway (you can personalise them exactly how you’d like) just enter the rafflecopter below to be in with a chance 🙂

My Top 5 places to shop when you’re expecting!  

Having had 4 children myself I’ve obviously had a good shop around when I’ve been expecting and I’ve bought things that I didn’t really need and I’ve bought things that were lifesavers. If I was to have another one (definitely not happening) I know exactly where I would be shopping. Here are my top 5 places to go..

  1. Apples & Pips. This website is amazing. So many different items and brands and all in one place.
  2. Kiddicare. If you want to save some money on all the essentials, this is the place to shop. So many bargains to be had.
  3. Babies R Us. I got so many of my items from here. They not only have some lovely products but if you go at the right time, yo can pick up some bargains.
  4. Next. they have so many beautiful clothes. Yes they’re a little more expensive than some other places but they wash and last really well and when you baby has outgrown them, they sell on really well too.
  5. Amazon. If you’ve seen something you like, 8/10 it will be cheaper on Amazon.

I also did a lot of my shopping online to cut down the stress of shopping and I could also check out reviews of an item before I purchased it.
