Check Out What’s New This Summer From Stikins ® Name Labels

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Here at Label Planet, we want our products and services to be the best they can possibly be – which is why we work hard each and every year to find NEW ways to help our customers AND to improve our OLD ways to make them even better than they were before!

Take our Stikins ® name labels; we’ve been selling Stikins ® since 2003 and we really believe that these labels are a brilliant solution to the problem of labelling items safely and securely (you don’t have to take our word for it though – we’ve received over 5,000 independent reviews from parents and families who have already tried our name labels for themselves).

However, we also know that there’s always room for improvement and we’ve launched several new and/or improved versions of our name labels (in 2010, 2013, 2015, and 2017). This year, we’ve actually gone one step further by improving the OLD version of our Stikins ® (by developing a new unique Stikins ® adhesive) AND introducing a NEW version of our Stikins ® (in the form of the Stikins ® Name Label Kit).

The unique Stikins ® adhesive is even better than our previous adhesive and has been developed using the latest materials and manufacturing processes; this adhesive is ONLY available on Stikins ® name labels and is designed to make absolutely sure that our multipurpose name labels will simply stick on and stay on!

The Stikins ® Name Label Kit contains sixty blank Stikins ® name labels and a pen so you can personalise each and every label exactly as you wish – so you can share the pack between as many different people and purposes as you like. These name labels are made with the same material and Stikins ® adhesive as our printed name labels but have a special “write-on” matt finish.

We’ve also been working on our website to make it an even more detailed and useful resource for our customers and fundraising partners.

STIKINS ® NAME LABELS: we’ve updated our information pages to provide customers with everything they need to know about our name labels, including a completely updated Frequently Asked Questions page to help answer questions and queries that parents may have about how to order and/or use Stikins ® name labels. We also offer customer service through our Customer Service Team who are available to help via email and phone – Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Find out more about Stikins ® on our Stikins ® Information Page or get the answers to your questions on our new look FAQs Page.

SCHOOL FUNDRAISING WITH STIKINS ®: we run a fundraising scheme that allows schools and PTAs (and other groups) to earn up to 30% commission on sales of name labels. The scheme is completely free to join and provides year round fundraising with only the minimal input required; we allocate each school or PTA with a fundraising number (which parents quote when they order from us) and supply free resources (such as leaflets and samples) to help our partners promote the scheme to parents.

Visit the Fundraising Home Page to find out more.


Please note: we are no longer selling mixed packs of Stikins ® name labels and silver name labels (product codes: M240 and M120); however, both items are still available to buy as individual product packs.

New For Summer ’16 – Introducing Super Stikins ® Mixed Packs

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Yes, this summer we’ve introduced brand new mixed packs of our Stikins ® name labels, so our customers can have the best of both worlds (and save some money in the process!).

As you may know, we currently offer Stikins ® in two colours: White and Silver. With our new combination packs you can now order packs with white AND silver Stikins ® – with a choice of either 240 labels for £18.50 (120 white and 120 silver) or 120 labels for £10.50 (60 white and 60 silver).

These packs mean you don’t have to choose between the two colours and you can have a few of both at a brilliant price that also saves you money!

Choosing a mixed pack also means you can get your children’s belongings organised; we have a number of parents who like to use the white Stikins ® on their children’s clothing and use the silver (more decorative) Stikins ® on the equipment and personal belongings that their children need (or want) to take to school – the silver labels are especially popular for use on lunch boxes and water bottles, and on personal devices (such as phones and tablets) where the white background tends to stand out a bit too much.

Visit our Stikins ® product page now to purchase your very own Stikins ® Super Pack (or, if you really don’t want both colours, take your pick from our original packs of just white or just silver Stikins ®).  

What’s New For Spring/Summer 2015

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

You might have noticed that we’ve made quite a few updates and announcements recently, so here’s a quick recap to get you all caught up – just in case you missed anything!

  • BRAND NEW NAME LABEL PRODUCT: SILVER STIKINS ®
    This product is a silver version of our existing Stikins ® name label product and uses the same vinyl and advanced adhesive to create a simple stick on name label – in a brand new shade of silver! These name labels are available in the same four pack sizes as our existing product AND cost exactly the same as the white Stikins ® – when placing your order, you simply need to select your preferred colour: White or Silver.
  • BRAND NEW FUNDRAISING GUIDE FOR SCHOOLS/PTAS
    Our brand new guide includes; a brief overview of Label Planet and our commission scheme; the benefits of joining our commission scheme; the steps to follow to get registered and earning commission; advice on letting people know about the scheme; information about our name label products (including product information, packs and pricing information, despatch and delivery information, and ordering information); our Commission Booster Plan (to get the best from your fundraising); example letters for raising awareness amongst parents; and all of the website links and contact information you might need.
  • BRAND NEW PARENT LEAFLETS
    We’ve given our leaflets a bit of a redesign and brought them bang up to date. The new version is available to download from our website if you find that you need an extra copy.
  • BRAND NEW FUNDRAISING MATERIALS (GUIDE/POSTER/EXAMPLE LETTERS)
    We do our best to help our commission partners get as much out of our fundraising scheme as possible; one of the ways we do this is providing additional materials free of charge to help promote the fundraising scheme AND the reference number of the school. Our new materials include a Fundraising Guide (with information, advice, and tips), a Noticeboard Poster, and example Covering Letters to raise awareness of the scheme amongst parents.
  • BRAND NEW WEBSITE ADDRESS
    Customers can now reach our website either by visiting www.stikins.co.uk as usual or by using our all new URL: www.stikins.co.uk.
  • RETURN OF THE FREE SAMPLES OFFER
    We’re running our free Stikins ® sample offer once again; we will print five Stikins ® for every pupil in your school to help promote our fundraising scheme amongst parents. Simply get in touch with us to request your samples. Please note that this offer is only available until the END OF JUNE.

Name Labels 2: Return of the Silver Stikins ® (Kind Of)

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Existing customers who’ve been with us for a number of years will no doubt remember our Original Stikins ® – the original version of Stikins ®, which launched in 2004 and featured different shapes and sizes of white name labels along with optional silver labels for use on lunch boxes, water bottles, and personal items that children needed (or perhaps just wanted) to take to school.

While our Original Stikins ® were discontinued in 2013, we’ve had many a customer commenting that they miss our Original Stikins ® – and now we’ve got some news that we think might just cheer you up!

PRESENTING THE ALL-NEW (SORT OF) NAME LABEL PRODUCT FROM LABEL PLANET:

SILVER STIKINS ®

Okay, so it’s not exactly a completely new product, but we are proud to announce that we now supply a silver version of our Stikins ® name labels.

These labels are exactly the same as the white Stikins ® – they’re simply a different colour!

And for those of you feeling a bit nostalgic for the Original Silver Stikins ® – we hope you’ll love these ones even more than the old ones (particularly as these ones can be used on ALL KINDS of items, including clothing).

Silver Stikins ® are available in the same four pack sizes as our White Stikins ® and – best of all – they cost exactly the same amount. So all you need to do is decide if you prefer white or silver.

If you want to give our Silver Stikins ® a try, simply order in the usual way and select the “Silver” colour option.

[Of course, if you really CAN’T decide, you could always order a pack of each colour – just in case!]

What’s In A Name – TRONS ® Transfers

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Now that our TRONS ® name transfers are up and running, we thought we’d explain the story behind the name.

We wanted something that would work alongside our STIKINS ®, while also being easy to remember, easy to say, and also short and catchy – which was quite a list of requirements to meet!

We went through hundreds of different options, voted time and again for our favourites, before deciding that – actually – we didn’t like the options we’d come up with and it was probably best to start all over again.

Anyone who has had to name a new product will know the difficulties and frustrations of coming up with that perfect name – after all, it will be the name of your product forever and you don’t want to get stuck with something that – after reflection – just doesn’t sound quite right.

But one day, we finally came up with a solution. Our STIKINS ® name labels are named so because they are name labels that simply stick on and stay on. Or, in other words, they stick in – stik in – STIKINS ®!

So, for our new product, we followed the same pattern. TRONS ® are iron on name transfers, which simply iron on and stay on. Of course, this gives us the name “Ironons” and we weren’t altogether keen on that. So we tried again; these name transfers simply transfer on – transon – TRONS ®!

And that’s how we got the name!

Update on our newest product: TRONS ® Name Transfers

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Well it’s almost two months since we launched our TRONS ® Name Transfers and we just wanted to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to all of our customers who have been giving these labels a go.

We’ve had a BRILLIANT response to our TRONS ®, with people buying them in both our Combination Packs and as standalone items and we couldn’t be happier.

As a completely new product, and a different direction to our STIKINS ® name labels, we weren’t sure if our customers would get as excited as us about branching out into the world of iron on name transfers.

And, to make sure we can keep up with demand, our TRONS ® are being manufactured in bulk as we speak (type!) so we’ll be all set to supply them throughout the summer (and beyond).

If you want to find out more about our newest product (or to give them a try for yourself!), head over to our TRONS ® name transfers page on our website.

Have You Tried TRONS ® Yet?

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

We’ve been delighted with the response to the launch of our brand new name transfer product, TRONS ® – it’s fantastic to see so many of our customers giving our new name labels a try!

TRONS ® are easy to use iron-on name transfers that can be transferred directly onto garments (including socks!) or wash-care and garment labels. Each transfer is made of an extremely thin layer of material that has been impregnated with ink; once ironed on, both the material and the ink bond and fuse with the garment to create a permanent labelling solution.

Many of our customers have opted for one of our combinations packs, which provide the best of both worlds, with half the pack being STIKINS ® and half being TRONS ® – so you can label pretty much anything!

STIKINS ® and TRONS ® are also available as separate items, which can be ordered here (TRONS ®) (STIKINS ®).

 

Introducing: TRONS ® NAME TRANSFERS!

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Yes! The day has finally arrived when we unveil our brand new name labelling product: TRONS ® name transfers!

We’ve been working away on this new product for months and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share it with our customers.

This product is designed to be an additional product that (along with STIKINS ®) will provide the best name labelling solution for our busy customers.

TRONS ® are iron-name transfers; they are made up of an extremely thin layer of material that has been impregnated with ink. When the transfer is ironed, the material and the ink bond and fuse onto the fabric below to create a completely permanent name labelling solution on all kinds of fabric items – including socks (which, as our regular customers will know, have proven to be a challenge for our STIKINS ®). These name transfers can be applied onto garment and wash-care labels or directly onto the fabric itself.

Each transfer is 35mm wide by 15mm high and they are sold on A5 sheets with 35 TRONS ® per sheet. Instructions for use are printed on the reverse of the sheet and each pack is supplied with a re-usable TRONS ® silicon paper sheet that is used to transfer the label quickly and easily. Like our STIKINS ®, TRONS ® have been wash tested and sun cream tested to make sure they meet the needs of our customers throughout the year.

TRONS ® are available to buy online here; they are supplied in packs of 35, 70, 105, or 140, or in special combination packs along with our STIKINS ® name labels.

We hope our customers will give them a try and find them to be as exciting (and useful!!!) as we do.

The Countdown Begins…

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Our new product is drawing ever closer!

We’re currently putting the finishing touches to our newest product, which will be launching in the next few days.

To reflect the new addition, we’ll be revamping our website to include the new product and sending out our brand new Parent Leaflets, fully up to date with all the information parents need about both of our name labelling products.

As soon as the website is updated our new product will be 100% ready for customer orders, and we hope you decide to give them a try. We’ll be selling our two products separately AND as combination packs – so customers can get the best of both worlds!

Brand New Product Coming Soon (Well Actually, In June!)

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Yes, we’re expanding our range of name labels to include a brand new product, which we will be launching in June. Some parents may already have received a copy of our brand new Parent Leaflet, which includes information about the new product AND the opportunity to pre-order this item – an early preview of what’s to come.

Our website will be updated next week, so everyone can take a look at the brand new labelling solution on offer AND take the chance to place a pre-order.

We will begin fulfilling orders in the second week of June – with pre-orders taking priority for production and despatch.

We’re really excited about this new product – and we hope you will be too. We’ll be offering the new product on its own and as part of combination packs, along with our existing STIKINS ® name label products.
