Name Labels For Small Items

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Small school items need labelling just in case they get lost or mixed up. It is surprising how important small items can be: watches, special pens, memory sticks, CDs, medication etc.

Label Planet’s new STIKINS ® name labels are ideal for small items; measuring just 15mm x 30mm they can be used on pens and pencils and are extremely sticky with durable print.

STIKINS ® original name labels have a mini label in the assorted packs which is also great for small items.

STIKINS ® are practical and cost effective because one pack is all you need to label clothes, shoes, bags and, of course, small items.

Name Labels Slight Delay

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Sorry, but there is a slight delay in supplying our new STIKINS ® name labels.

We anticipate being able to despatch all the labels you have ordered on the 28th June 2011. We do apologise; we had higher demand than anticipated in May and our next batch of blank stock was delayed by 2 weeks.

Many thanks for your custom and patience.

What Characters Can I Have On Name Labels?

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Well on Label Planet’s name labels you can have any of the upper and lower case characters, numbers and punctuation marks. In addition you can have Western European foreign characters, for example French, German, Danish etc. When you enter your names on the website only printable characters are accepted.

The size of the characters will depend upon how many there are in the name; name labels with two lines will have the same font and size for both lines. This is because it looks very strange if they are different on the name labels.

How Many Characters Fit On A Name Label?

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Label Planet supplies STIKINS ® name labels online. Most customers need name labels that have up to 10 characters and this fits easily onto all our name labels. The website will not allow you to enter a name that cannot be printed, however, to fit very long names onto a label the label printing software makes the characters smaller and smaller. If you use capitals then these take up more space on the name labels than lower case.

Last week we supplied a 15mm name label with 30 capitalised characters, but you would need extremely good eye sight to read it.

Well that’s about all on name labels for today.

Name Labels For Shoes

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

It’s a great idea to label shoes with your child’s name because there are bound to be identical shoes in any school or nursery. We supply stick on shoe name labels in our assorted packs, and the new multi-purpose name label is also great for shoes. Just stick the name label under the tongue of the shoe, or on the inner side wall. It is best not to stick the name labels under the heel as this will cause wear to the label.
