Anyone tried snappytags or similar for labelling school uniform?

I'm tempted by these laser etched name buttons which you snap onto clothes with some fancy pliers. They are supposed to be removable and reusable.. If that's true the £17 for 25 tags and kit isn't too bad. Or are they too good to be true?

I think I had these for the dc [[ http://www.attachatag.com/tags]], if that's what you mean and they do work perfectly and are easy to use.

Dreadful idea: they never get spotted.

And the lost item gets thrown into the hellhole that is unmarked items, rather than returned to classroom. Of it goes home with someone else and doesn't reappear for weeks - the latter can happen regardless of labelling technique, but seems to be worse when it's not an easily spotted name tape.

Thank you for the link to a similar product and the warning about lost property. Still considering!

Hey not sure about the size of these. If you sit on one they are very painful. Best labels I have been using for years are Namemark ones.
