Schools: Ban The Lost Property Box Forever With Stick On School Labels From Stikins
Lost property can be a major headache for schools of all sizes; with Stikins stick on school labels, however, you can ban the lost property box forever.
The Many Problems Of Lost Property
Schools are busy places, filled with children and their – near identical – belongings. In the hustle and bustle of the classroom, cloakroom, and changing room, it’s all too easy for items to get mixed up or misplaced. This leaves school staff with the additional work of having to round up, store, and attempt to reunite this lost property with the rightful owner – which can be an impossible task in itself. Many children will be reluctant to claim items from the lost property box if they don’t know for sure that something belongs to them. This often means that even when schools put in the time and effort to hold lost property events, few items will actually be reclaimed.
Finding a simple labelling solution that works for ALL school items encourages ALL parents to label ALL of their children’s belongings, which means that when items do go missing (an inevitable part of school life) they are easy to return to their rightful owner.
The Solution Of Stikins School Labels
This is where Stikins come in. Unlike sew-in name tapes, iron on name tags, clip on name tags, and other stick on name labels, Stikins can be used to label pretty much everything and anything *. They are made with a unique adhesive and a super flexible material, which means they can label soft items, like school uniform, and hard items, like lunch boxes and water bottles.
With Stikins, parents can use one pack to label their children’s school uniform AND school kit. This includes bags and shoes, stationery and books, and essential extras.
Our school labels simply stick on and stay on, so parents can get everything safely and securely labelled in minutes. They must be stuck onto the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items, where they will remain firmly stuck even when put through washing machines and tumble dryers. They can also be stuck directly onto other items, including food and drink containers that will be put through the dishwasher, microwave, or the good old kitchen sink.
Stikins are white labels printed with a bold black font; parents can request one or two lines of text, with plenty of space to add a name or a name and additional information (such as a contact phone number, friendly message, or medical/allergy information). Each label measures 30mm wide by 15mm high; this size fits neatly and discretely onto clothing and personal items of all shapes and sizes.
* In fact, the only items that they struggle with are socks. Socks don’t have wash-care labels and, because they stretch around the foot, they don’t have a consistent surface for Stikins to bond with successfully. While you CAN apply Stikins onto socks, you will probably find that they peel away over time.
Solve Your Lost Property Problem & Raise Money For The School
In addition to reducing the amount of lost property in school (thus saving staff resources for more important things), Stikins can bring additional benefits in the shape of our school fundraising scheme. This scheme allows schools and PTAs to raise funds by earning commission on sales of Stikins. We allocate a fundraising number to our school partners and every order we receive where that number is quoted will earn up to 30% commission for the school.
There are no initial or ongoing costs required to participate and we even provide free leaflets, posters, and samples to help you promote the scheme to parents. Parents order directly from us and we keep track of your commission earnings; all you need to do is sign up and make sure that parents know about Stikins – and your all important fundraising number.
