Once again, we’re offering schools and PTAs the chance to boost their fundraising totals by requesting free printed samples of our Stikins ® name labels to hand out to parents. In the past, we’ve found that these samples are a really effective way to get more parents to actually buy and use name labels on their children’s school uniform and equipment – which will both reduce the amount of lost property that your school has to deal with and boost the amount of commission that you earn through the Stikins ® fundraising scheme.
This year, we’re offering free samples to schools in May, June, and September – which means that there are only a few weeks left to request your samples before the summer break.
All you need to do is to request your samples (by emailing us or by filling in our online Request Form) and send us an Excel spreadsheet containing the names you need printing (with the first names in the first column and the surnames in the second column).
If your school has data protection guidelines in place that prevent you from sending full names you can also request samples printed with class names, initials, or just first names or initials and surnames. We only use the spreadsheet of names for the purpose of printing your samples; once your samples have been printed, the spreadsheet is completely deleted from our system.
We pack each sample individually with its own set of instructions and information leaflet. You can request samples for your new intake (who will be starting in September) OR – if you have added a link to your school or PTA website – you can request free samples for the whole school (this offer is available once per school but you can request samples for new intake each year).
Many schools like to send out welcome packs to new starters with information about the school and school uniform requirements, which provides an excellent way to introduce Stikins ® name labels to parents.
