Clothes Labels For School Uniform

Clothes Labels

With Stikins, labelling your children’s clothing has never been easier. Sewing and ironing on labels can be time consuming and tricky, especially when you have a whole uniform to label. When more than one child is involved it becomes even more of a struggle! Our unique stick on clothes labels offer a quick and simple alternative. Featuring a unique adhesive, which is only available on Stikins labels, our clothes labels can be used to label all kinds of fabric items in seconds. Stikins are made with a soft, flexible plastic, which won't cause irritation or discomfort when items are worn. Thanks to the 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 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 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.

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

Excellent quality as always. I have used them previously on all uniform, clothes and lunchboxes etc. They have gone through the wash and dishwasher. They are as clear as when they were first out on. Make sure you read the instructions for shoes - I made the mistake of sticking one to the heel and it has faded - the ones on the tongue and side are still perfect. Excellent value for money

Fantastic product! I don’t usually bother writing reviews but this product is worth the effort. Stikins are fantastic as you literally just stick them onto basically anything! Clothes, lunchbox, drink cups, you name it!...and they never come off in the wash. I have used these for at least a year and I will never buy a ‘similar’ product as others just don’t cut the mustard. Great job Stikins! Thanks for making my job as a Mum easier.

I’ve been using Stikins for about 6 years after a fellow mum recommended them. They totally do the job. My second son even has my first son’s label still stuck in the hand-me-down clothes! They also arrive really quickly when ordered, which is just as well because I’ve realised my second son is down to his last 3.

Recommended by daughter-in-law who uses them for our grandson's school wear etc. Mother-in-law moving into care home...when my mother moved in to one I ordered embroidered name labels and it took me hours and hours to stitch into her clothes. Ordered Stikins and they arrived as advertised, so I was able to get Mum-in-law's clothes and toiletries etc etc labelled within a very short time. Recommended them to the care home, too. Very clear and easy to read. Very pleased.

I was recommended the Stikins labels by a family member a few years ago and have been using them ever since. They are superb and so useful for school and they are great at staying put on a range of surfaces, from clothes to drink bottles and shoes and everything inbetween. Just one thing I did notice in the summer of 2018, the stikins that I had used on the labels of sweatshirts and polo shirts stayed on brilliantly but the names disappeared leaving a blank label. I pondered over this, could it be my washing detergent? But the ones on trousers were not affected and it had only started happening in that summer so I put it down to the Sun Cream that I used on my children's necks that could be wearing the names off. So now I use 'Trons' an Iron On Name Transfer also from 'Label Planet' (which I've also used for years) on any clothing around their necks, problem solved. Do not know if this issue was due to a change in manufacturing or my change of sun cream, but just something for both Label Planet and the consumer to be aware of, don't know if anyone else has experienced such problems? Overall an excellent product which I wouldn't want to be without.

    Our Reply

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Claire and for your carefully considered comments. We are fairly sure your problems will not have been caused by the detergent you use, but we have become aware that some suncreams, particularly the clear spray-on types, can cause the print to fade. It is difficult to keep up with all the changes in the manufacture of suncreams, but we are always trying to improve our labels and this year we have sourced a new ink which should overcome this particular problem.

Stikins aren't the cheapest solution but they are by far the easiest for a busy working mum like me. Came quickly and happy with the product. So quick and simple to apply and they stay put on anything (clothes, shoes, bags, waterproofs, water bottles, lunch tubs, shoes and wellies) without any need to iron or sew in. They are fine through dishwasher and washing machine washes. I have now ordered a big bundle for both my children now as I plan to use them for many years to come.
