Clothes Labels For School Uniform

Clothes Labels

Traditionally, clothes labels have been sew-in name tapes or iron-on name tags, which can be time consuming and tricky to apply. We designed our stick on clothing labels to provide a quick and simple alternative that can label clothes in minutes, not hours.

Stikins stick onto the wash-care label of clothing, where they remain in place for wash after wash after wash. They can even be put through tumble-dryers. With our clothes labels you can rest assured that your items will remain safely labelled all year round!

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 were developed specifically for school uniform. 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 Stikins onto the wash-care label and you’re good to go! You can also use Stikins on other fabric items, like bedding, towels, and soft toys.

Can I Apply Stikins Clothes Labels Directly Onto Clothing?

We recommend applying Stikins 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 applied onto wash-care labels, which means we can guarantee that your clothes labels will stay stuck when applied onto wash-care labels.

We cannot test all of the different material blends, which means we cannot offer the same guarantee if you apply Stikins directly onto the fabric of clothing. Stikins 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 clothes 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 can be used to label pretty much everything and anything.

How Long Have Stikins Been Supplying 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 “Original” Stikins 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 of Stikins – allowing us to ensure that Stikins continue to simply stick on and stay on.

What Size Are Stikins Clothes Labels?

Our labels measure 30mm x 15mm and fit neatly and discretely onto items of all shapes and sizes – especially wash-care labels in clothing. Stikins 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 Colour Clothes Labels Are Available?

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

What Font Size Do You Use On Stikins Clothes Labels?

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 Clothes Labels?

Stikins come in four pack sizes. Buy 30 clothes labels for £6.80, 60 clothes labels for £9.50, 90 clothes labels for £12.00, and 120 clothes labels for £14.20.

When Will My Clothes Labels Be Delivered?

We print and post clothes 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 and around 93% arrives next day. You can upgrade to guaranteed next day delivery for £6.30.

A friend got me a very small pack as she found them in her words "the most useful tags out there".I was dubious as they didn't appear any different to all the others I'd had and kept using but hey I got them for free! They have lasted longer than any others I've known! None came off in the wash or went grey! I don't know why and I can get them off when I pass the clothes on so either they are magic or there's a secret all mums should know! Best name tags, not cheap but I can guarantee worth it.

I have just placed my second order of labels. I have tried other brands but these labels are by far the best. The labels don’t peel throughout the year of school on any of the items I have used them on (clothes, shoes, bag, water bottle). As a busy mum it’s great as they stick on without having to get the iron set up. Ordering is easy, delivery is quick and product is great 👍

Absolutely fantastic labels for even the most knocked about lunchboxes and uniforms! We have used these on all parts of uniform - including gloves, hats and shoes and they are showing no signs of wear and tear despite being put through to the test by a five year old boy. Really handy for lunchboxes and bottles as well as clothes as they do not wear in the dishwasher as yet and have been washed hundreds of times. Easy to fix on, stay put instantly as far as I can tell, and arrive quickly. Highly recommend.

We have been using Stikins ever since we heard of them when our daughter started school at the age of 4. The labels are great as they stay on clothes in the wash, but when you need to recycle your clothes it isn't impossible to peel off the labels either. I use them for everything! Clothes, shoes, lunchbox, school bag, and everything taken to Y5/ Y6 camp. It even helped us get a special scrunchie back, as we'd labelled that too!

I ordered name labels for my daughter- used it on essentially everything for school, such as school clothes, water bottles, etc. And I have ordered more again as they are durable, still looks new and is still stuck to her clothes despite being through the washer and dryer. Very satisfied. Would happily recommend and will continue to buy.
