Last Posting Dates For Christmas Name Labels

Friday, December 1st, 2017

It is finally December, which means that the Christmas Countdown is officially ON!

It also means that if you’ve been thinking about ordering some Christmas name labels to get yourself organised over the holidays, then NOW is the time to buy!

Christmas is a great time of year to take stock of how much stuff has made it to school and back again safely (and how much hasn’t) and to see what else needs labelling – just in case.

Maybe you need school uniform labels for someone who’s grown a bit (or a lot) over the last few months, name tags for equipment that’s needed for a new class or project starting in January, or perhaps you just need a few extra stick on name labels to help keep a few Christmas presents safe when they inevitably get taken into school for an (un)official show and tell.

If you’ve got a child (or any other family members) with a bit of a reputation for losing things, a pack of Stikins ® name labels might just be the perfect little extra something for their stocking this year.

It’s also a great time to order school name labels on behalf of family and friends – especially those living abroad who will be visiting (or visited) over the holidays.

If you want to order a pack (or two or three or four – or more!) of sticky name labels for delivery BEFORE Christmas – don’t worry! – there’s still plenty of time to make sure that your stick on labels arrive before the big day.

SWIFT & SPEEDY DESPATCH

OF SEASONAL SCHOOL NAME LABELS

We print, pack, and post our name labels every day, Monday to Friday, up to 3pm – which means that ALL orders received before 3pm are sent out SAME day, while orders received after 3pm (or over the weekend) are sent out on the NEXT working day.

We send all of our orders via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard (free of charge) and you can also upgrade to a next day delivery service (shipping: £5.75) or a Saturday delivery service (shipping: £8.75) to make sure that your name stickers arrive safe and sound as soon as possible.

To upgrade to our special delivery options, please give us a call on 01270 668076; this allows us to ensure that your order will DEFINITELY be despatched same day for next day delivery.

DELIVERY DEADLINES TO AVOID

A CHRISTMAS DISAPPOINTMENT

If you do want to order name labels for clothes and other items – and you need them to arrive BEFORE Christmas – then we strongly recommend upgrading to our next day delivery service.

We also recommend ordering as soon as possible to avoid disappointment – especially if you are relying on our standard delivery service; Royal Mail do NOT guarantee that first class items will be delivered next day and this service can experience delays as we get closer to Christmas.


If you find that ordering name labels has slipped your mind, these are the very last posting dates for orders of Stikins ® name labels:

Delivery to Europe: last posting dates vary by country with some being as early as the 6th December and others being as late as 13th-15th December; you can get in touch with us to find out the last posting date for your intended shipping destination BUT we strongly recommend ordering THIS WEEK to give your name labels plenty of time to arrive.

Delivery to the Republic Of Ireland: we despatch orders via Royal Mail’s International Standard service, which means the last posting date is Friday 15th December.

This service may be delayed so we recommend ordering as early as possible for pre-Christmas delivery.

Standard Delivery to the UK: Royal Mail’s First Class service has a last posting date of Wednesday 20th December.

This service may be delayed so we recommend ordering as early as possible for pre-Christmas delivery OR upgrading to a special delivery service.

Special Delivery to the UK: special delivery is via Royal Mail’s Special Delivery Guaranteed service, which has a last posting date of Thursday 21st December.

If you find yourself leaving things to the VERY last minute this year, we can despatch name labels on Friday 22nd December for delivery before Christmas, providing you upgrade to the Royal Mail’s Saturday Delivery Guaranteed service.

Remember, if you want to upgrade to one of our special delivery options at ANY time during December, you will need to call our Customer Service Team to do so – this allows us to make sure that your sticky name labels are made and despatched on the same day you order.

Stikins ® Name Labels – Name Tags For Nursing Homes, Care Homes & Residential Care Facilities

Friday, November 17th, 2017

While most Stikins ® name labels are bought (by parents) for use as school uniform labels, clothing labels, general purpose school labels, and name stickers for just about everything else, we have also found that a number of our customers have given us really positive feedback about using our self adhesive name tags on the belongings of relatives or friends who are living in a nursing home, care home, or residential care facility.

Stikins ® name labels are a really simple solution to the problem of labelling multiple items quickly and securely; our multipurpose sticky name labels can be stuck onto the wash-care labels of clothing and fabric items or directly onto personal items, including books and photo albums, glasses cases and pill boxes, and food and drink containers.

Nursing homes and care homes rely heavily on the use of shared spaces and facilities (including kitchens and laundries), which makes it all too easy for items to be misplaced or mixed up. Adding stick on name labels to clothing and personal belongings is a really easy way to make it straightforward for residents, visitors, and members of staff to return items to their rightful owners.

Each name label measures 30mm wide by 15mm high, which makes them a discrete addition to any item but also provides plenty of room to add a name (with the option to add a room number as well). They simply peel off their backing sheet and then stick on and stay on – whether you use them as name labels for clothing, shoes, bedding, boxes, containers, or individual personal belongings.

Our name labels use a unique and powerful adhesive to remain firmly stuck in place, which means there’s absolutely no ironing and no sewing required. The adhesive also means that you can use one pack of our stick on labels for clothing, fabric items, and personal possessions so there’s no need to buy different types of name labels (e.g. sew-in name labels, iron-on name tapes, clip on name tags, or name stamps) for different items – these stick on name labels can be used to label pretty much everything and anything.

Orders can be placed anytime online (simply visit www.stikins.co.uk) or you can call our Customer Service Team Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm to order by phone. We print name labels every day, Monday to Friday, which means that most orders will be despatched same day (up to 3pm; orders placed after 3pm or over the weekend will be despatched next working day). Our prices are inclusive of VAT and standard delivery (Royal Mail’s first class service) with the option to upgrade to a guaranteed next day delivery service if you need to receive your name labels quickly (for example, if a friend or relative is transferred to a care home or nursing home at short notice).

While individuals can place their own name label orders (or order on behalf of a friend or relative), we are also happy to deal with nursing homes and care homes directly. If you need to order a large number of name label packs, you can simply email us the list of names (and room numbers) you would like printed and we offer a 10% discount to all nursing and care homes who order name labels on behalf of their residents.

Flaming Good Names To Celebrate Bonfire Night!

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

This weekend will see hundreds of events taking place across the country in honour of Bonfire Night / Guy Fawkes Night. To celebrate, we thought we’d gather up some blazingly brilliant names to suit the occasion.

Names Inspired By “Fire”
There are plenty of names from across the world that mean “fire”, including:

ÁED/ ÁEDH

AODH

ÁEDÁN

AODHÁN

AIDAN

ADEN

AGNI

ASH

AZAR

BLAZE

BRANDR

CINÁED

CONLÁED

CONLETH

FIAMMETTA

FINTAN

HURIK

KEAHI

NINA

PYRRHUS

UGNĖ

 

Names Inspired By “Fireworks”
There are also names that have a perfect connection to Bonfire Night in the fireworks and effects that are used during celebrations, including:

BLOSSOM A flower-like effect that opens and expands.
CATHERINE (wheel) A firework that is either a spiral tube or an angled rocket mounted with a pin through its centre so that it rotates when ignited.
CHERRY (bomb) A firecracker contained in a paper cup that explodes as a sphere.
CHRYSANTHEMUM An effect characterised as an expanding sphere of coloured stars that leave behind a trail of sparks.
DAHLIA An effect that is similar to the peony (see below) but has fewer and larger stars that travel for longer and may have a cylindrical rather than spherical shape.
(jumping) JACK A firework that appears to “jump” around on the ground as it spins and produces coloured effects that fire in all directions.
LANCE A firework contained in a thin paper tube, which is combined with other lances to produce words, phrases, or pictures.
PEARL An effect characterised by stars that burn in just one colour until they burn out at their maximum height.
PEONY An effect characterised as an expanding sphere of coloured stars (without a trail of sparks).
ROMAN (candle) A firework contained in a card tube that periodically emits either a single effect or a series of small effects (e.g. stars, comets, bombettes, trails, serpents etc).
WILLOW An effect characterised as an expanding sphere of coloured stars that leave behind a trail of long burning gold or silver stars.

 

Names Inspired By “(Guy) Fawkes”
Of course, there are also names connected with the Gunpowder Plot itself, including the thirteen men involved in the plot to remove King James I from the throne. The group began with five original conspirators, before two individuals were added, followed by two groups of three further conspirators.

ROBERT Catesby The leader of the group who planned the Gunpowder Plot.
THOMAS & ROBERT Wintour Cousins of Catesby; Thomas was amongst original group of five conspirators, while his brother Robert was recruited in the penultimate group of three (most likely to boost the group’s funds).
JOHN (Jack) & CHRISTOPHER (Kit) Wright John was one of the original five conspirators (and purchased plenty of weapons for the group), while Christopher was a later recruit (one of the penultimate group of three).
GUY Fawkes The most famous member of the group (owing to the fact that he was caught guarding the gunpowder); he was invited to join the group by Thomas Wintour due to his expertise with explosives. He used the alias JOHN Johnson, in an attempt to hide his own identity.
THOMAS Percy The final member of the original group of five; Thomas Percy was a friend of Robert Catesby and brother in law to the Wright brothers; he helped to fund the group and secured the leases of a number of key properties in London for the group’s use (including the vault beneath the Houses of Parliament where the gunpowder was eventually placed in preparation for the attack).
ROBERT Keyes Recruited to guard the gunpowder supplies before they were transferred to their hiding place beneath the Houses of Parliament, Robert was a distant cousin of both the Wintour brothers and the Wright brothers.
THOMAS Bates Robert Catesby’s servant was added to the group of conspirators because he accidentally discovered the plot after becoming suspicious of his master’s movements.
JOHN Grant The third member of the penultimate group of three, John Grant was brother in law to the Wintour brothers, and was recruited to provide supplies for an uprising in the Midlands.
AMBROSE Rookwood The first member of the final group of three recruits, Ambrose was Robert Keyes’ cousin in law and was recruited for his extensive stable of horses – needed for the Midlands uprising.
FRANCIS Tresham A cousin of Robert Catesby, Francis was recruited for access to his recent inheritance and his estate at Rushton Hall; he refused Catesby both, although he did give a small amount of money to Thomas Wintour.
Sir EVERARD Digby The final recruit, Sir Digby was recruited for his money and his stable of horses to fund (and participate) in the Midlands uprising.

 

Buy Stikins ® Name Labels & Get All Your Winter Warmers Safely & Securely Labelled
If you’re planning to be out and about this weekend, you’ll probably be wrapping up nice and warm in a variety of winter warmers, which makes this the perfect time to get out your Stikins ® name labels (or to place another order if you’re running short) to get everything labelled.

Whether it’s a favourite scarf, a well-loved pair of gloves or mittens, or a super-snuggly hat, it’s all too easy to take these items off, put them down “somewhere safe”, and then completely forget to pick them up again – not to mention all the mix ups and confusion that can happen when these winter warmers are thrown together into the chaos of a classroom or school cloakroom. This is where our super sticky name labels can help to save the day!

Stikins ® are extremely easy to use stick on labels that can be used as name stickers on all kinds of winter warmers (where they stick onto the wash-care label) and they’re brilliant school name labels for use throughout the winter, spring, summer, and autumn months. Each name label measures 3cm wide by 1.5cm high (so they won’t stick out when they’re not needed) and is printed with a bold black font to make it really easy for your child (or a member of staff) to read the name on each item that you’ve labelled.

Plus, if you’re looking for name labels or name tags that can be used as school uniform labels, clothing labels, shoe labels and bag labels, and general purpose name labels for all the other “essentials” that your child likes to keep with them at all times, Stikins ® offer a truly multipurpose name labelling solution – meaning you can use just one pack of our stick on name labels to label pretty much EVERYTHING!

Have A Happy #coffeemorning from Stikins ® Name Labels!

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Today is Macmillan’s annual coffee morning, which aims to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support by encouraging everyone to get together for a cup of coffee (and hopefully some cake too).

Whether you’ve hired a hall and a band or you’re simply meeting up with a few friends, family, or co-workers to raise some money (and your mugs), we hope you have a good time.


While you might think of name labels as being something that belongs solely to the school yard and classroom, they can also be a small thing that makes a difference when it comes to dealing with medical conditions. Our name labels are used by people, young and old, who need to label their belongings with medical alerts or allergy information to make sure those items are safely and clearly labelled. They’re an easy way to create an extra level of security for people with medical conditions and allergies and can be applied onto all kinds of personal items, including lunch boxes and water bottles, medical supplies (and the various bags and boxes that they need to be stored in), as well as general personal items that may have more emotional value than practical importance.

We have a variety of customers who order name labels for themselves or for a friend or relative staying in a nursing or residential care facility, to provide extra security for their belongings and to help prevent the stress and worry that is caused by personal belongings going missing. Stikins ® name labels can be applied onto the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items (including towels, bedding, and soft toys) or directly onto personal items, such as books and photo albums, shoes and slippers, or mementoes with significant sentimental value.

Stikins ® are extremely easy to use; they simply peel off their backing sheet and then stick on and stay on – with absolutely no sewing and no ironing required. They’re ideal for keeping track of belongings that are regularly moved around in shared facilities and living spaces, or carted about quickly between different places and appointments.

You can add whatever information you like; we’ve printed labels with names, room numbers, contact information for a relative or friend, medical alerts and allergy information, and “if lost” messages.

Our name labels can be ordered anytime online or by phone during office hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm); if you need to receive your labels urgently, you can give us a call and request a guaranteed next day delivery service (shipping: £5.75). All orders received by 3pm are made and despatched same day, with orders received after 3pm or over the weekend being made and despatched on the next working day. We despatch orders via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard and both UK delivery and VAT are included in the prices on our website.

Autumn Starts Here & We’ve Got Name Labels For All Your (Winter) Gear!

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Tonight, (at 21:02 to be precise) the Autumn Equinox will take place, traditionally signalling the transition from summer to autumn.

“Equinox” comes from the Latin word “aequinoctium”, which is made up of “aequus” (meaning equal) and “nox” (from “noctis” meaning night) – there are TWO equinoxes each year, which mark the moments at which the sun is directly above the equator making night and day (roughly) equal in length.

The two equinoxes occur each year in March and September and they are known by a variety of names including: the vernal equinox and autumnal equinox (the Latin words for spring and autumn), the March equinox and September equinox (indicating the months during which the equinoxes take place), the northward equinox and southward equinox (indicating the direction of the sun’s movement across the equatorial line – in March this is south to north and in September it is north to south), and the First Point Of Aries and the First Point Of Libra (derived from the constellations that the sun appears to be in front of at the moment of the equinox – confusingly, due to the very gradual change in the orientation of Earth’s axis of rotation (the line from the north pole to the south pole) these constellations are actually currently Pisces and Virgo).

The autumn equinox has traditionally been used as a symbol of the change from summer to autumn (in the northern hemisphere; in the southern hemisphere it marks the passage from winter to spring) and is often used as a traditional time for harvest festivals around the world.

Given that today marks a change in season, we thought we’d take a look at how the four seasons fair amongst our customers as names with a seasonal flavour. AUTUMN is actually the second most popular season amongst Stikins ® customers with SUMMER being the most popular and WINTER taking third place – sadly, none of our customers (so far) have requested name labels printed with SPRING.


With the shift into autumn, children across the country will be settling into the first term of the school year and gathering an ever impressive array of paraphernalia to carry around with them – including winter warmers, once the weather takes a(nother) cooler turn. Our Stikins ® name labels can be used to label all kinds of clothing and personal items, including hats and gloves, coats and scarves, and suitable shoes for the autumn and winter months.

While the back to school rush might well be firmly over, we’ll be continuing our daily production runs so you can rest assured that your order will be made and despatched same day (up to 3pm) or next day. You can also request a special next day delivery service by phone (shipping cost: £5.75) if you need to receive your name labels before an upcoming event, such as a residential trip or holiday.

You can order name labels from Label Planet online (at www.stikins.co.uk) or by phone (visit our Contact Page for more information).

Getting Creatively Colourful With Colour-Inspired Names

Friday, September 8th, 2017

While looking for a theme for this week’s blog post, we noticed that today is the birthday of the American singer P!nk, which reminded us of all the wonderfully colourful names we’ve seen that are inspired by different names for different colours.

These are the most popular colour-inspired names used by Stikins ® customers (so far):

RUBY ~ SCARLETT ~ AMBER ~ SIENNA ~ ROSE

~ VIOLET ~ OLIVE ~ HAZEL ~ JADE ~

SAFFRON ~ BRUNO ~ PHOENIX ~ BIANCA/BLANCHE ~ INDIGO

~ SAPPHIRE ~ CORAL ~ SILVER ~ BLUE ~

Warm colours tend to be the most popular options, with all of our top five colour-based names being associated with red and orange tones. While some colour-inspired names are taken straight from different terms for different colours, we also have a number of names that are inspired by colours, including “Bruno” (derived from the Germanic word “brun” meaning brown), “Bianca” and “Blanche” (derived from a French nickname meaning white), and “Phoenix” (the name of the mythical bird is said to have derived from the Greek word “phoinix”, which means “dark red” or “purple-red”).

Other colour-inspired names that we’ve come across include:

Albus / Alba / Arun / Aruna / Azure / Blaine

Blake / Ciarán / Ciara / Cyan / Edom

Electra / Fidda / Fionn / Grey / Gwen / Iole

Iris / Lavender / Lilac / Lloyd / Melanie

Nila / Nilam / Odhrán / Red / Sable / Sini

Sonal / Tawny / Teal / Xanthe


At Label Planet, we supply Stikins ® name labels, which are plain white labels printed with a bold black font to make sure that your information is as clear and easy to read as possible. These multipurpose name labels measure 30mm wide by 15mm high and can be used to label almost any kind of item, including clothing (where they should be applied on the wash-care label), bags and shoes (in shoes they should be applied onto the side wall or beneath the tongue), and all kinds of personal items including lunch boxes and water bottles, books and stationery kits, mobile devices and tablets, and P.E. kits and sports equipment.

Sadly, our silver name labels are now a discontinued item as we are no longer able to source the material used to make these labels. We have a limited supply of silver labels, which can be ordered by phone – while stocks last!

To order your own name labels today, simply head on over to www.stikins.co.uk.

Pinch Punch, It’s The First Of The Month (So Here’s Some “Monthly” Names)!

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Yes, September is here and the summer is fast falling away into autumn but we’re still busy printing and packing name labels for those emergency back-to-school orders. So don’t worry if you’ve run out of labels or you’ve forgotten to buy any name labels at all in the rush of getting ready for the new school term – all orders we receive by 3pm will be despatched same day, while orders received after 3pm or over the weekend will be despatched on the next working day. If you need your order urgently, simply give us a call and you can upgrade your order to a guaranteed next day delivery option (this service costs £5.75 and our Customer Service Team is available 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday).

Seeing as it’s the first day of a brand new month, we thought we’d take a look at a few names that are associated with the months of the year…

  • While “JANUARY” itself is a great name, you could also opt for JANUS (the Roman God of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, duality, doorways, passages, and endings) or JUNO (the Roman Goddess of marriage, women, and Rome, as well as queen of the gods).
  • Like January, “APRIL” is a lovely “monthly” name and is, in fact, the most popular month-inspired name amongst Stikins ® customers.
  • MAY” is another popular name, as is MAIA – the Greek Goddess for whom the month of May was named.
  • JUNEtakes second place amongst our customers, while JUNO (the Roman Goddess from January) also has strong associations with the month of June.
  • While we didn’t have any name labels for AUGUSTUS (the Roman emperor for whom the month is named), we did print labels with the name “AUGUST” itself.

Sadly, so far, we haven’t printed any name labels for a February, March, July, September, October, November, OR December – but there’s plenty of time yet!

Visit our website at www.stikins.co.uk to place a last minute back to school order of Stikins ® name labels today!

Yes, the summer holidays are all but over, which means there’s just enough time for a last-minute-back-to-school order of name labels to safely and securely label all of the uniform, equipment, and other “essentials” that you’ve spent (what feels like) weeks choosing, trying on, arguing about, and (finally) buying.

No one wants to spend time ordering (and applying) name labels BUT they’re a quick and easy way to make sure that your child doesn’t come home mere weeks (or days) into the new school year with a tragic story of how a piece of their brand new school uniform or equipment has mysteriously and inexplicably disappeared.

So, whether you’ve already ordered name labels (but they’ve disappeared or run out) or you haven’t made an order yet (because you forgot or you’ve been putting it off for “another day”), head on over to our website now to place an order for some (more) Stikins ® name labels – and then sit back and relax and make the most of what’s left of the summer!

Going Places With Geographically Inspired Names

Friday, August 18th, 2017

You might not know it but it was on this date in 1587 that Virginia Dare was born – becoming the first English child to be born in the “New World” of America. She was named for the territory of Virginia where she was born, which got us thinking about all of the different names we see that are taken from place names around the world.

We’ve printed names inspired by countries and states, counties and capitals, and cities and towns and, following a quick look through the archives, we’ve found that the following have been the most popular place-based names amongst our customers over the last year:

Georgia ~ SebastianLoganFlorenceAustinHarleyLydiaEden

With the new school term underway in Scotland and the summer holidays fast drawing to a close across the UK, we’re busy printing and packing name labels all day and every day. We despatch all orders on the same working day (up to 3pm) with all other orders being despatched on the next working day. We supply name labels to delivery addresses across the UK and Ireland (along with some European countries); UK shipping is via Royal Mail’s First Class service (shipping is included in the prices on our website) and shipping to Ireland is via Royal Mail’s International Standard service (shipping is £1.50 per pack).

FAQs – Ordering Stikins ® Name Labels From Label Planet

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Here at Label Planet, we designed our stick on name labels with busy families in mind, which means we’ve tried to make our products AND our services as useful and simple as possible – so you have more time (and money) to get on with the important things in life.

Ordering name labels and labelling school uniform and equipment is never going to be the most fun task that parents have to deal with over the summer holidays BUT name labels are an incredibly simple way to avoid the hassle of a child returning from school missing an all-important item of their school uniform (or one of those essential “extras” that they simply can’t do without). So, to avoid the tears and tantrums (and the subsequent lightening of your purse or wallet) that go hand in hand with lost property, here’s a quickfire FAQ to guide you through the process of ordering Stikins ® name labels from Label Planet.

HOW DO I ORDER NAME LABELS FROM LABEL PLANET?
You can order Stikins ® name labels online, by phone, or by post.

Online
Visit stikins.co.uk and click on the “Buy Stikins ®” button; enter the text you want printed on your name labels and select a pack size (if you are ordering the Stikins ® Name Label Kit, leave the text fields blank). Add your pack of name labels to your basket and then choose whether you want to add another pack (“Enter More Names”) or to checkout. Fill in your delivery details and make payment by debit/credit card or by Paypal.
Double check the confirmation page and/or confirmation email to make sure that all of the details you have provided for your order are correct.

By Phone
Call us on 01270 668076; our Customer Service Team is available Monday to Friday (9am-5pm). Let us know what packs you would like to order (and the text you would like printed on each one), your delivery information, and make payment by debit card or credit card.

By Post
Fill in the order form on the back of our Parent Leaflet; we send out a leaflet with every order and you can download a digital copy from our website – leaflets are also handed out by schools who have joined our Fundraising Scheme. Let us know what packs you would like to order and the text you would like printed on each one, along with your delivery information. Post your order form to us along with a cheque for payment to Wilbraham House, Unit 2 Alvaston Business Park, Middlewich Road, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6PF.

WHAT TEXT SHOULD I PUT ON MY NAME LABELS?
It’s up to you to decide what you want printing on your name labels but we do have a few tips to help you decide:

  • Most customers request a first name (top line) and a surname (bottom line) OR a full name (top line) and a phone number (bottom line).
  • We recommend that you request no more than two pieces of information – you could choose a piece of contact information, a class/form/year name, a medical/allergy alert (e.g. Nut Allergy), or a friendly message (e.g. “Please Return To” // “This Belongs To”).
  • Our name labels are one size only and the font size will be reduced to allow your text to fit neatly within those dimensions (30mm wide by 15mm high), so you should try to keep things short and sweet. We recommend adding no more than 15-20 characters per line; while you can enter more characters than this, you will find that the font size is significantly smaller.
  • We can only print alphanumerical characters and basic punctuation marks; we cannot print images or emoji.
  • We cannot split packs between different names or text; every label within a particular pack is printed with the same text. You can, however, be a bit creative with the text you request so that you can share the labels (e.g. adding a surname only or including all of the names) OR you can opt for our Stikins ® Name Label Kit, which contains 60 blank labels and a pen so you can personalise each label as you wish.
  • If you want to leave one line blank, please use the space bar on your keyboard to add a single blank space to the text box for that line.

WHAT IS A SCHOOL FUNDRAISING NUMBER?
We run a Fundraising Scheme for schools and PTAs (and other groups), which allows them to raise money by earning commission on sales of name labels. They are assigned a unique fundraising number and any order we receive where that number is quoted will earn commission for the school, which they can then use for any ongoing projects or fundraising targets that they are working towards.

If your school has given you a fundraising number to quote, simply enter the number into the Fundraising Number box at the bottom of the product page (just above the “Add to basket” button), quote the number when you order by phone, or fill in the Fundraising Number box on the order form. If you forget to add your school’s fundraising number you can get in touch with us by phone or email and we can add the number to your order retroactively.

Please note that the Fundraising Number is NOT a discount code; quoting the number means that your order will help to raise money for your child’s school and does not apply a discount to your order when you checkout.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY LABELS TO ARRIVE?
We print name labels every day so any order we receive by 3pm will be printed and despatched same day – orders placed after 3pm, over the weekend, or on a bank holiday will be printed and despatched on the next working day.

All of our UK orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard; around 93% of these items are delivered on the next (working) day, with the rest taking a day or two extra depending on the service level in your area.

I NEED MY LABELS URGENTLY – CAN YOU HELP?
We know that it’s all too easy to forget to order name labels or to find that you’ve not ordered enough to get EVERYTHING labelled, which may mean that you end up needing your labels in a hurry. In addition to despatching orders same or next working day, we also offer a guaranteed next day delivery service; this guarantees that your order will be delivered next day by 1pm and costs £5.75. We must receive your order before 4pm so we have time to make and despatch your name labels same day and so you can only request this service by phone.

I’VE MADE A MISTAKE ON MY ORDER – WHAT SHOULD I DO?
When you complete an order online, you will be directed to a confirmation page showing the details of your order AND you will receive a copy of that page in a confirmation email (along with an email from Sagepay, our payment gateway provider, confirming that your payment has gone through successfully). We STRONGLY recommend that you read through the confirmation page or email to make sure that all of the details in your order are correct because, as we state on our product pages, “WE WILL PRINT EXACTLY WHAT YOU ENTER”.

If you find a mistake, simply get in touch with us as soon as possible to let us know – you can give us a call or simply send us an email with the corrections that you need making and we’ll get your order updated on your behalf.

Remember, our Customer Service Team is always on hand if you need any help or advice when it comes to ordering your own set(s) of Stikins ® name labels; simply give us a call or send us an email and we’ll be happy to help.
