Not so stuck on you

I ordered some personalised labels, bag tag, and clothing labels (iron-on) for Kai from (introduced by Adeline) before he started school. But it didn't make it in time for the first day, so I had to use the functional black and white do-it-yourself labels for a start.

My goods finally arrived this week, but I didn't have time to try them out until today. Overall, I would say the quality is average although the designs and concepts are very cute.

1. Bag tag: Too big for my liking, and VERY hard to put on. I guess the plus is that you can print additional info using your own label-maker (i.e. address, telephone number) and stick it on the tag.

2. Personalised stickers: The cutest of the lot. I ordered the shaped vinyl labels because it is microwave and dishwasher safe. The quality isn't too bad. Suffice to say I'm most pleased with this.

3. Clothing labels: I added my telephone number underneath Kai's name. Instructions say to use a medium-hot iron, place the provided parchment paper over the label, and place the iron over it for 10 seconds.

Maybe my iron was too hot, but bits of the label lost its gloss and one corner didn't attach to the t-shirt too well. I wonder if the end result is suppose to look glossy or matt (like rubber print on t-shirt). A little of a disappointment since it isn't all that user friendly. I suppose I need to get the iron temperature right, but it shouldn't be all that difficult to use right?

Terence asks me to relax. It's suppose to be a fun exercise, and not meant to stress me out!
