Fun “Hello My Name Is” Dog Tags: (available from Shutterfly) It was just a few nights ago that I was filling out my “Hello My Name Is” sticker at my son’s “back to school” night. At first it seems silly to be filling out one of these and sticking it to my shirt, but they are so useful!
How else am I going to remember the names of parents that I see twice a year? Not to mention, these were probably a god-send to the poor teacher who had to mingle with 50 parents that night!
Origin of the “Hello My Name Is” Stickers
The thought occurred to me that these handy little stickers have been around for a long time, so I took to Googling them. Turns out they’ve been around since first being introduced by the “C-Line” company in 1959, and are now apparently popular with graffiti artists who use them as tags. (who knew?)
Hello My Name Is for Dogs (and cats)
While investigating the “Hello My Name Is” stickers, I also came across dog tags with the same iconic design; pretty cool! Not only are these tags highly functional (also has your phone # on the back) but also a great ice-breaker at a dog park. (Especially if you’re single!)
Tip: If you get one at shutterfly.com, definitely choose one of the marker fonts like “Andy, Felt Tip Roman, or Kidprint Bold,” for the best hand-written effect.
If you use a coupon for Shutterfly, these are only about $6 each, and are easy to add to any photo order if you don’t want to pay for shipping.

Anyway, I’m terrible with both human and dog names, so anything fun that helps me out is always welcome!
