Clothes Labels For School Uniform

Use Stikins ® As Clothes Labels

Labelling your children’s clothing has never been easier. Sewing in and ironing on labels is time consuming and tricky, especially when you have a whole uniform to label (and that's just for one child!). Our unique stick on name labels offer a quick and simple alternative to traditional clothes labels. Use Stikins ® labels as clothing labels and get all kinds of fabric items labelled in seconds. Our labels are made with a soft, flexible plastic, which won't cause irritation or discomfort when items are worn. Thanks to their unique adhesive, they will also stay put in washing machines and tumble-dryers!

How Do Clothes Labels Stop Clothing Getting Lost?

Clothes labels instantly answer the question “who does this belong to” so clothing can be returned before reaching the lost property box. Families can avoid the fallout of lost property – from the emotional trauma to the frustration of buying replacements to the nightmare of getting a child to rifle through the lost property box and claim something as their own.

How Do Clothes Labels Help Teachers?

Teachers already have a LOT to do and dealing with lost property is especially frustrating because it is so easily avoided. Clothes labels help children keep hold of their own school uniform, make it easier to return lost items, and teach children to take responsibility for their own belongings.

Is It Safe To Use Stick On Labels On Clothes?

Yes! Stikins ® labels were developed specifically for use as clothing labels for school uniform, clothing, and other fabric items. Our unique adhesive creates a super strong adhesive bond that keeps your labels in place even after repeat trips through the washing machine and tumble-dryer. Apply your name labels onto the wash-care label and you’re good to go! You can also use your labels on other fabric items, like bedding, towels, and soft toys.

Can I Apply Stikins ® Labels Directly Onto Clothing?

When using our name labels as clothes labels, we recommend applying them onto the wash-care label and not directly onto clothing. This is because wash-care labels use a specific kind of material, while clothing can be made using thousands of different material blends.

All of our tests were conducted using Stikins ® labels applied onto wash-care labels, which means we can guarantee that you can use our name labels as clothing labels if you apply them onto wash-care labels.

We cannot test all of the different material blends, which means we cannot offer the same guarantee if you apply your labels directly onto the fabric of clothing. Stikins ® labels do bond well with some materials – we simply cannot guarantee that they will do so for all material blends – and this is why we recommend applying your name labels onto the wash-care label only.  

Are Stick On Clothes Labels Better Than Sew-In Name Tapes And Iron-On Name Tags?

We (and our customers) think so! Sewing in name tapes has been a long standing tradition for parents (and grandparents) but there is no denying that it takes AGES – and that’s if you know your way around a needle and thread. For many, the prospect of having to sew in labels is an absolute nightmare to be avoided at all costs. Iron on name tags are supposed to offer an easier alternative BUT still require time, care, and concentration (not to mention a hot iron) to apply properly – often with mixed results.

This is where stick on clothes labels come into their own. You peel them off the backing sheet and stick them down. No needles. No irons. No sewing. No ironing. No problem.

Stick on labels are also a truly multipurpose option – where sew-in and iron-on labels can only be used on clothes and fabric items, Stikins ® labels can be used to label pretty much everything and anything.

How Long Have Stikins ® Labels Been Used As Clothes Labels?

Our managing director has four children and quickly discovered that the labelling products available at the time simply weren’t up to the job. He used his background in the labelling industry to come up with a suitable alternative and our “Original” product launched in 2004. Since then we’ve continued to research and test new materials and manufacturing methods, leading to a steady release of new and improved versions – allowing us to ensure that your labels continue to simply stick on and stay on.

What Size Are Stikins ® Name Labels?

Our labels measure 30mm x 15mm - the perfect size for clothes labels! They fit neatly and discretely onto items of all shapes and sizes – especially wash-care labels in clothing. Our labels are easy to read at a glance but don’t take up too much space or draw attention to themselves the rest of the time.

What Colours Are Available?

Stikins ® name labels are white labels printed with a bold black font. This combination is the clearest and ensures that your name labels are as easy to read as possible.

What Font Size Do You Use?

We adjust the font size depending on how many characters you request. Our system automatically selects the largest possible font size that will allow your personalisation to fit onto your labels. Our online order form includes a print preview to give you an idea of what your clothes labels will look like.

How Much Are Stikins ® Labels?

We offer four pack sizes. Buy 30 for £7.80, 60 for £10.80, 90 for £13.80, and 120 for £16.20.

Each pack comes in a plastic bag, which provides protection for your labels during storage and is also pre-printed with our instructions for use so they're always on hand when you need them.

When Will My Name Labels Be Delivered?

We print and post name labels every day, Monday to Friday (up to 3pm), so every order is despatched on the same or next working day. Standard delivery uses Royal Mail’s first class service. Currently around 75% of first class post arrives next day so we advise that orders may take up to seven working days to arrive.

Our super fast despatch and delivery is available all year round – even during the back to school rush.

I have always used Stikins since my twin daughters were little girls attending primary school. Our cousin recommended them, saying that they affix to anything: clothes, school bags, mugs, sandwich boxes, pencil cases, toiletries, swimming goggles - absolutely everything. Quite often they grow out of the clothes before the labels disintegrate. I am now using them for my mum's stuff, as she may be moving to a retirement home and they will be just as useful there. Thank you, Stikins!

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - and for your regular orders! When using Stikins in shoes, we recommend applying them under the tongue or onto the side wall. If they are applied to the floor of the shoe, where they will come into contact with the foot, the friction generated by movement will cause the print to fade.

I have been using stikins for my wee boy for 6 years now. They really are Brilliant! I use them on clothes, shoes, bag, lunch bag and water bottles. I’ve never has any issues with stikins falling off, they last the while school year! I am always recommending to other Mum’s! They are a bit more expensive than some normal stickers online but I really do think they are worth the wee bit extra, you get what you pay for!😊

We found Stikins by word-of-mouth. I had fallen over, labelling my children's clothes, because my stitching is too slow and too haphazard. Bizarrely, Stikins' offer is to stick to your children's clothes, and -- and this is the good bit -- to _stay_ stuck there. Remarkably, they do a pretty good job of staying stuck on. Now, labelling new clothes for my children, is more about remembering when they are new, and keeping the Stikins in a handy place. Whereas before, it was about hoping I had an adequately sharp needle, and appropriate thread, and looking forward to a painful and probably bloodied finger, and always disappointed at my untidy stitching. [Aside. Although they are pretty good at staying stuck, there are some clothing labels which don't take them as well. Occasionally I find one in the washing machine pump access trap.]
