We Paint A Picture…Of Our Customers’ Favourite Colourful Names
This week's blog was inspired by a recent scientific discovery. Three years ago, scientists uncovered the oldest colour in the world – and discovered that it was bright pink!
Rocks extracted from deep beneath the Sahara Desert were found to contain fossilised chlorophyll. This chlorophyll was produced over 1.1 billion years ago by tiny cyanobacteria, which inhabited an ancient ocean that no longer exists. The pigments contained in this chlorophyll were found to be bright pink. This makes pink the oldest known biological colour pigment in the world!
So, we decided to celebrate by taking a look at the colourful names requested by our customers. Pink and red inspired names held their own but greens and blues came out on top. In terms of overall popularity, though, red inspired names are the clear winners, followed by yellow and green – with pink coming a respectable fourth.
Check out our colourful palette of colour-inspired names below. Have your favourite colourful names made our list? How many more colourful names can you think of?
The World Of Stikins Name Labels Is Black And White – Here’s Why…
While some name label suppliers offer never ending combinations of colours, here at Stikins we keep things simple. Our name labels are ONLY available in one colour combination – bright WHITE name labels printed with a bold BLACK font. There are a number of reasons why we only offer one combination:
- CLARITY: a black font on a white background creates one of the clearest possible colour combinations. This means your personalisation is highly legible and super quick and easy to read. So, when your child needs to double check that they’ve got their own belongings, it only takes a quick look. Likewise, if something goes missing, anyone who finds an item can check who the owner is in seconds. This makes it super easy to return labelled items.
- UNIVERSAL LABELS: using a simple colour combination makes our name labels suitable for EVERYONE. You can use these labels for small kids, big kids, teenagers, and grown ups of all ages – without any embarrassment along the way! We designed our name labels to be as practical as possible. Our simple design means Stikins are suitable for any person and any purpose you might need labels for. This also means you can purchase name labels printed with a simple family name and use them for your whole family!
- SIMPLICITY: let’s face it – name labelling is not a fun job. It’s a practical task that just needs doing. So, while you could spend hours picking and choosing different coloured backgrounds, borders, fonts, and pictures for each of your kids, you can order Stikins in seconds. There’s absolutely no fuss; all you have to choose is what you want printing and how many name labels you need.
