Happy New Year - Stikins Name Labels

Well, it is officially 2018 and we are back in the Stikins ® office ready for another year of creating sticky name tags and school fundraising!

We hope you had a brilliant time celebrating the new year with friends and family (and we hope that one or two of you have made a New Year’s Resolution to buy more name tags in 2018!).

Are you waiting for your name tags?

We’re busy working our way through all of the orders we received for our stick on name tags over the Christmas break and we hope to be all caught by today or tomorrow. We’ll also be making a start on replying to any emails we received during the holidays – although we do always prioritise making and despatching orders of our name tags for clothes and personal items, so please bear with us as we catch up.

If you ordered name tags for school or clothing before Christmas AND received a despatch confirmation email but haven’t received your order yet, they may have been caught up in the Christmas rush. If you haven’t received anything by the end of the week, please contact our Customer Service Team so we can assist you further.

If you ordered name tags for school or clothing before Christmas but didn’t receive a despatch confirmation email then your order will be in our “To Do” pile; we’re aiming to meet our usual despatch targets of despatching all orders same or next day – and hopefully all of our Christmas name tags AND new orders will be made and posted out by the end of play tomorrow.

Find out more about our name tags today!

If you have any questions or queries about Stikins ® name tags or you need some assistance placing an order (or tracking an order you placed before Christmas), please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Customer Service Team, we are available to help Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas!

We’ve had our most successful year ever thanks to all of our marvellous customers who’ve been leaving us wonderful reviews, recommending us to friends and family, and – of course – using our name labels. So, thank you – we hope to see you again in 2018! Our office closes today and we will re-open again on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

We would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and we hope that your (winter holi)days are both merry and bright.

Merry Christmas To All & To All A Good Night!

A Quick Post Easter Update From Label Planet & Stikins ®

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

We’re open again after taking an extended Easter break last week. We hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday and are now coping well with the post-chocolate haze that is getting everyone back to school and work.

We’ve been working through all of the orders that we received over the break and we’re delighted (and relieved) to announce that we’re all caught up.

Orders placed over the Easter Break (14th-23rd April) have now been printed, packed, and put in the post – so if your Easter order of name labels hasn’t arrived yet, it’s on the way!

We’re also working our way through emails and school fundraising requests so don’t panic if you haven’t heard back from us – we’re getting there!

If you do have any questions or queries about our name labels or our school fundraising scheme, please do get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.

Wishing You All A Hoppy-Happy Easter Weekend From Label Planet!

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Yes, this weekend is the Easter Weekend and, whatever your plans, we hope you have a wonderful time!

Whether you’re taking the family on a hunt for chocolate eggs and Easter bunnies or you’re simply looking forward to a long weekend away from work, we hope you enjoy the break.

Here at Label Planet, we will be closing for a short Easter holiday; our office will close at 5pm today and we will re-open on Monday 24th April at 9am.

We’ll be making name labels up to 3pm but if you don’t get the time today you can still order online over the break; all orders we receive during this time will be made and posted out when we return. If you have any questions or queries during this time, please send us an email and we’ll respond as soon as we can once we’re back.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day To One & All!

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Yes, today is Saint Patrick’s Day, and celebrations are taking place all around the world in honour of Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland.

Did You Know:

  • March 17th is the Feast Day of Saint Patrick because it is the traditional date given for his death.
  • Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, Nigeria, and Montserrat, as well as engineers and paralegals – he is also invoked for protection against snakes, sins, and witchcraft.
  • Saint Patrick adopted the name Patrick (or “Patricius” in its original Latin form); his real birth name is unknown, although “Maewyn Succat” is commonly used.
  • While he is the patron saint of Ireland, he was actually born in Roman Britain – locations in both Wales and Scotland have claimed to be his actual place of birth.
  • Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations involve a LOT of green because green is traditionally used as the national colour of Ireland BUT Saint Patrick is also associated with blue and “Saint Patrick’s Blue” is used as the official colour of state, featuring on the Irish coat of arms and the presidential standard of the President of Ireland. Blue is also used as an official colour by a variety of Irish universities, sports teams, and military units.
  • The shamrock is associated with Saint Patrick’s Day because a traditional story claims that Saint Patrick used the three leaves of the shamrock to explain the Christian Holy Trinity – it has since become associated with Ireland and is often used as one of the traditional symbols of Ireland. The shamrock itself is a type of clover – although there remains some dispute as to whether or not the shamrock is a specific variety of clover (with Trifolium dubium (lesser trefoil) and Trifolium repens (white clover) being the two varieties most commonly considered to be shamrocks).

Happy Christmas from all of us at Label Planet!

We’ve had an absolutely spectacular year and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support – whether you’ve simply decided to buy your name labels from us or you’ve gone the extra mile and written us a review, mentioned us on social media, or introduced us to friends and family.

We Wish You All A Wonderfully Weird Halloween…

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Yes, tonight is the night that ghouls and ghosts are free to roam the Earth and we hope you have a spooktacular time tonight!

Whether you’re donning your most delightfully devilish costume to scare your neighbours (go trick or treating) or raise some hell (have a party with friends), spending the night on (or behind) the sofa with a line-up of scary films, or simply stuffing your face with sugary goodness because, well, it’s Halloween – we hope you have a wickedly good time!

And, remember, if you want to make sure that your Halloween haul doesn’t get pilfered by a stray imp, why not add a Stikins ® name label to your bag, basket, bucket, or box to make sure everyone knows to keep their hands (or claws or paws) off your stash!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016
