Forgotten Your Name Labels? Stikins ® & Trons ® Name Labels Are Despatched Same Day!

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

It is well and truly the last days of the back to school rush but don’t panic if you haven’t got your name labels yet.

We know that the end of the summer holidays are a whirlwind – there’s so much to do, not enough time to do it, and you still want to make the most of those last few days. In all the confusion, it can be easy to overlook a few things and – while you might have gleefully checked off the last item on the list of “Essential” items requested by school – one thing that many parents forget about is name labels.

While some schools now enforce name labels as a required part of school uniform (and equipment), for most it is still an optional requirement and for some it doesn’t get mentioned at all. However, adding a simple name label to those all-important school items can be a big help in preventing the time and money you’ll waste on replacing items that are probably mostly brand new.

So, if you’ve forgotten to buy your name labels (or if you’ve lost the ones you bought earlier in the year in the hopes of being completely prepared for the hurdles of back to school organisation), don’t panic!

Here at Label Planet, we despatch every order we receive before 3pm (Mon-Fri) on the same working day. Orders placed after 3pm or over the weekend will be despatched on the next working day.

All orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service (93% of which does arrive the next working day), but if you’re especially anxious about receiving your labels, you can give us a call and upgrade your order to a guaranteed next working day delivery service (£5.75 shipping charge applies).

At Label Planet, we’re continuing our current production levels, with all orders placed before 3pm (Mon-Fri) being despatched same day via Royal Mail’s first class service (93% of which arrive the next day) and those placed after 3pm or over the weekend being processed on the next working day.

However, if you do need your labels urgently, then simply give us a call and we can take your order and upgrade it to a guaranteed next day delivery service (£5.75 shipping fee).

Summer Despatch Times: Same Day Despatch All Summer Long

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

While receiving your name labels as soon as possible may not seem as crucial now as it might in the rush and crush of the back to school season, we know that it’s nice to receive things you’ve ordered as quickly as possible.

So, as always, we’ve adapted our production levels for the summer months and for July, August, and September 2015 we will print and despatch all orders on the same working day – where orders are received before 3pm.

[Where orders are placed after 3pm or over the weekend, they will be printed and despatched on the next working day.]

Our standard delivery service is via Royal Mail’s first class service (UK postcodes) and we find that around 93% of this mail does arrive on the next working day. Of course, if you’re in a bit of a rush – perhaps there’s a school trip, summer camp, or a holiday on the horizon – you can also get in touch with us and add a next working day shipping option to your order.

FAQ – How Long Will It Take For My Order To Arrive?

All of our UK orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard. We find that around 93% of post sent by this service does arrive the next day, with the rest taking a day or two extra. As this is NOT a guaranteed next day service, we do offer a next day shipping option, which customers can request by phone.

We also ship to a limited number of countries outside of the UK; standard delivery is by Royal Mail’s International Standard service. They aim to deliver items sent by this service to Western Europe in 3-5 working days and to the Rest of the World in 5-7 working days.

Throughout the year we work to a set level of production, to ensure that all of our customers receive their name labels on time and don’t end up applying their labels in a rush.

Our current production level is three working days, which means that we make and despatch all orders within three working days of receiving an order, with production running on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Name Labels Despatch Information For November-January

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

As we are now in the “off-peak” season of name labels, we just wanted to keep our customers up to date with our current despatch and delivery information.

During November, December, and January, we will be printing name labels twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

This means that all orders will be printed and despatched within three working days of an order being placed. Standard delivery is Royal Mail’s first class service; we find that 93% of this arrives the next day, with the remainder taking a day or two extra as it is not a guaranteed next day delivery option.

We know that some customers may need their labels more urgently – for a school or family trip, or if they are for a relative or friend moving into a residential or care home facility. In these cases, we ask that you place your order over the phone and request either a next working day delivery option or an urgent despatch.
