Winning Names & Fascinating Facts To Celebrate The #Wimbledon Finals

Friday, July 14th, 2017

name labels wimbledon

This weekend sees the final matches played at Wimbledon to determine just who will be the champions for 2017, so we thought we’d take a look at the tournament and some special names associated with Wimbledon and tennis.

Wimbledon is officially called “The Championships” although it’s known by a number of titles including “The All England Lawn Tennis Championships”, “The Wimbledon Championships”, or just “Wimbledon”. It is held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (All-England Club or AEC for short), which was founded in 1868 as a private croquet club called the All England Croquet Club. It was renamed the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club in 1877 to account for the introduction of a brand new game that had been invented the year before – Sphairistikè or lawn tennis. Later that year the club decided to hold a tennis tournament to raise money to repair the pony roller used to maintain the lawns; 22 amateur players competed for a prize of 12 guineas and a silver cup, with the final being played in front of around 200 people after – rather fittingly – being delayed for three days by rain. The tournament generated a profit of £10 (saving the broken pony roller from the scrap heap) and launched what is now the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

Wimbledon remained a competition for amateur players only until 1968 when the tournament was opened up to allow both professional and amateur players to compete and has expanded from a single event to a tournament made up of five main events (Gentlemen’s Singles, Ladies’ Singles, Gentlemen’s Doubles, Ladies’ Doubles, and Mixed Doubles), four junior events (Boys’ Singles, Girls’ Singles, Boys’ Doubles, and Girls’ Doubles), and seven invitation events (Gentlemen’s Invitation Doubles, Ladies’ Invitation Doubles, Senior Gentlemen’s Invitation Doubles, Gentlemen’s Wheelchair Singles, Ladies’ Wheelchair Singles, Gentlemen’s Wheelchair Doubles, and Ladies’ Wheelchair Doubles). The tournament takes place over two weeks and was traditionally scheduled around the last Monday in June – this has now been delayed by a week, with play beginning on the first Monday in July.

It is one of four “Grand Slam” or “Major” tournaments, which are the four most important tennis tournaments held each year – the others are the Australian Open (held in January), the French Open (held in May), and the US Open (held in August/September). Wimbledon is the only major tournament played on grass courts; the French Open takes place on clay courts, while both the Australian Open and US Open take place on hard courts. Winning all four tournaments in one of the five main events in a single year is called a “Grand Slam”, winning all four along with a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games is a “Golden Grand Slam/Golden Slam”, and if a player also wins the ATP World Tour Final/WTA Tour Championship (held in November) it is a “Super Slam”.

You might not realise it but “Tennis” itself has actually been used as a boy’s name; traditionally, it is an alternative version of “Tennyson” and peaked in popularity in the 1920s.

Name Labels Vs Sun Creams – How To Make Your Labels Last All Summer Long

Friday, July 7th, 2017

You may have noticed that we describe our Stikins ® name labels and Trons ® name transfers as being “resistant to children’s alcohol-free sun creams and lotions” and perhaps wondered why we mention sun creams as being a particular problem for name label products.

Name labels are often applied into clothing where they come into contact with skin OR onto personal items (especially lunch boxes and water bottles) that are handled a lot, which may result in sun cream being transferred from the skin onto a name label. Modern sun creams are made with increasingly advanced ingredients designed to boost the protection offered by these products (for example by increasing the level of protection, improving water resistance or durability, or simply making a product easier to apply) and, while these ingredients do make sun creams and lotions extremely effective, they can also be quite damaging to the surfaces that they come into contact with over time – including name labels.

While name labels themselves are unlikely to be damaged (they are, after all, designed to withstand repeat cycles through washing machines and/or dishwashers), the printing inks used to personalise these labels may not be resistant to some of the ingredients used in sun creams and lotions – which can result in the print disintegrating or smearing away completely.

Name Labels for Summer

Beating The “Blockers”

Sun creams and lotions often contain “blockers”, which are ingredients that protect us from sunlight by preventing (or blocking) ultraviolet light from reaching our skin (by reflecting, scattering, or absorbing UV rays). A common example is titanium dioxide, which is a particularly popular ingredient because it is believed to be less irritating than other chemicals – making it ideal for use in products that are intended to be used by children or individuals with sensitive skin.

While titanium dioxide is brilliant at providing protection against harmful UV light, it is also extremely damaging to some printing inks – which is why we have sourced an advanced ink for our name label products that is fully resistant to titanium dioxide (as well as other similar ingredients used to produce sun creams and lotions).

The Problem With “Alcohol”

Unfortunately, there is one ingredient used in SOME sun creams and lotions that our ink is NOT currently resistant to – and that is alcohol. Alcohols are used in sun creams and lotions for a variety of reasons; some make sun creams more opaque (less transparent) or thicker or less greasy, some act as emollients (moisturisers), some help to preserve sun creams (so they last longer “on the shelf”), and some are used as carriers – particularly in sun sprays, where the alcohol helps to propel the spray more efficiently.

The problem is that alcohols are solvents; solvents are capable of dissolving other substances and this includes some printing inks used to personalise name labels. While our printing ink is not fully resistant to alcohol (or other solvents), this doesn’t mean that your name labels won’t survive the summer.

Firstly, alcohol is only used in SOME sun cream products and many manufacturers offer alcohol-free alternatives. Sun creams and lotions designed for children and individuals with sensitive skin are – as a general rule – among these alcohol-free product ranges.

Secondly, the risk of damage tends to exist immediately after a product has been applied (i.e. while the sun cream is drying or being absorbed into the skin); as long as you allow plenty of time for your sun cream product to dry or absorb in place, there won’t be any danger of the alcohol coming into contact with, and therefore damaging, the print on your name labels.

Happy #takeyourdogtoworkday From Label Planet (& Harvey The Stikins ® Dog)

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Today is officially Take Your Dog To Work Day – although we would argue that EVERY day should be take your dog to work day – so we thought we’d dedicate today’s post to our very own office dog, Harvey!

Harvey has been the Label Planet office dog for years and received an early promotion in 2010 when he was made the official mascot for Stikins ® name labels. His biggest (and perhaps only) challenge to date was to – very patiently – sit through an extra rigorous grooming session in preparation for a photo shoot to promote a new version of our flagship product (as seen in this truly professional portrait):

He has his own “desk” in the office in the form of a big brown rug, although he is invariably more likely to be found lying anywhere else (in particular, anywhere else that just so happens to be in the way) and has a particular fondness for spending his afternoons sunbathing by the front door.

Facts About Harvey:
Harvey Bear, Harvey Dog, Harvey Zebedee Worgan
Best Feature:
Chief Chewer Of Boxes, Head Greeter of (New) Persons, Overseer Of Tennis Balls and Biscuits, and Team Leader For The Department Of Long Sighs, Snoring Loudly, and Squeaking Squeaky Toys At Inopportune Moments (Especially If Someone Is On the Phone)
Office Snack Of Choice:
Office Snack Of Choice While On A Diet:
Exercise Of Choice:
Long Walks
Favourite Hobbies:
Sleeping, Eating, Lying Down, Walking, Resting, Soliciting Fuss, Snoozing

Did You Know: our multipurpose Stikins ® name labels can be used to label pretty much anything and everything, so why not use some of your Stikins ® to get your pets just as organised as your kids! You can label food tins, storage containers, water bowls, and leads – although please note that we wouldn’t recommend labelling anything that your dog will (try to) put in its mouth (e.g. toys).

Our easy to use name labels simply peel off their backing sheet and can be applied onto clothing (where they should be applied onto the wash-care label) or onto personal items that you want to keep securely labelled. You can order printed Stikins ® or – if you want a more flexible approach – you can order our Stikins ® Name Label Kit, which contains sixty blank name labels and a pen so you can personalise each label however you like!

Fun Facts & Truly Scrumptious Names For National Picnic Week

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Today marks the beginning of National Picnic Week, which aims to get us all out and about in the great outdoors with family, friends, and a good old pic-a-nic basket!

Picnics are a really easy way to organise a fun day out that won’t cost you the earth – all you need is food, fun extras to keep you and the kids amused, friends and family, and a picnic-friendly venue to set up camp. There are plenty of ways to keep everyone entertained from taking along a football or Frisbee, arming yourself with a good book or puzzle book, or even downloading a few apps full of fun games to keep you all amused.

name labels picnic

Picnics – FUN FACTS

The concept of a “picnic” has varied hugely over time and has previously referred to medieval hunting feasts, country banquets, Victorian garden parties, and even indoor social gatherings or dinner parties at which every guest brought their own contribution to the meal.

According to the National Picnic Week website, each of us will attend at least three picnics a year (which means that the UK sees around 94 million picnics per year) and the average family will spend £26 on a picnic (meaning that we collectively spend around £2,479,720,000 on picnics each year).

While picnics can be arranged in all sorts of shapes and sizes from intimate meals for two to large family gatherings, there have been some truly impressively picnics that have managed to pick up World Records along the way, including:

The Longest Picnic Table – 322.42 metres long (2nd April 2017 / Réunion)
The Longest Picnic Line – 2,277 metres long (15th July 2012 / Canada)
The Largest Picnic – 22,232 people (20th June 2009 / Portugal)
The Largest Picnic Blanket – 1,760 square metres (April 2008 / Woven In Wales & Laid Out In South Africa)


We’ve had a quick rummage around in our basket of previous orders to see if we could find any suitably sweet names to match our picnic theme and found Téa, Clementine, Honey, Cherry, Berry, and Candy.

Admittedly, this probably isn’t the healthiest selection for a real life picnic but we also found a whole selection of names meaning “sweet” that provide a subtler addition to our picnic theme: Anush, Dulcie, Esti, Madhu (Madhur/Madhuri), Miela, Pamela, Pollux, and Shirin.

For more information about any of our Name Labels, Speak to us Today

Hopefully, you’ll have time this summer to indulge in a relaxing picnic (or two) and remember, if you need to get any food containers or drinks bottles labelled, you can always use Stikins ® name labels to make sure that everybody’s stuff is clearly and securely labelled (so at least you know there won’t be any arguments about which water bottle belongs to whom when you’re trying to pull off a peaceful family picnic).

Stikins ® name labels can be used to label all kinds of personal items; simply make sure that your item is clean and dry, then peel one of your name labels off its backing sheet and apply it directly onto the item. Use your thumb to smooth the label down to make sure that the adhesive fully bonds with the surface.

If you are labelling clothing or fabric items, you should apply your name labels to the wash-care label. In shoes, we recommend that you stick your name labels onto the side wall or beneath the tongue – if you apply Stikins ® to the floor of the shoe, the print will disintegrate over time due to the friction generated between it and the heel.

Blooming Great Names Freshly Picked From The Garden

Friday, May 26th, 2017

name labels chelsea show

In honour of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is heading into its last couple days of glorious gardens and perfectly planted – well – plants, we’ve taken a look at the names favoured by our customers that share a distinctly botanical theme.

As you might have guessed, there are plenty of female names that have a floral feel – among our customers, the most popular are LILY, DAISY, and POPPY. An honorary mention goes to ROSE, which is the sixth favourite flower-inspired name for girls BUT is by far and away the most popular choice when it comes to picking a floral middle name (or as half of a double barrelled first name).

Other botanically inspired favourites include WILLOW, VIOLET, IVY, HEATHER, HAZEL, BLOSSOM, BLUEBELL, LAUREL, and PEONY.

For boys, the theme tends to lean more towards trees and more general nature-inspired names, such as ROWAN, ASH, HEATH, and WOODY.

While the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is an excellent place to pick up all kinds of wonderful ideas for the garden, we think it’s also a pretty good place to discover a name with a touch of flower power.

Did you know: our Stikins ® name labels can be used to label all kinds of items, including personal possessions so – if you’re a bit of a gardening fan, why not use some of your name labels to get your gardening gadgets labelled up. You could also try our Stikins ® Name Label Kit, which contains blank labels and a pen so you can write whatever you want onto each individual label – perfect for adding permanent labels onto pots or storage containers for all of your gardening supplies.

Name Labels New for Summer

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.

BIG NEWS: introducing the new STIKINS ® NAME LABEL KIT – the most versatile, multipurpose name label pack – ever!

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Yes, the big day is here and we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new version of our Stikins ® name labels in the shape of the Stikins ® Name Label Kit.

This kit contains 60 blank Stikins ® name labels and a pen, which means that you can personalise each and every name label exactly as you want – allowing you to split your pack however you need between as many different family members as you like.

The name labels in each kit are made with exactly the same material and unique adhesive as our printed Stikins ®; the ONLY difference is they have a matt finish to allow your written names or messages to stay in place – even after you wash your labelled items.

These easy to use name labels simply stick in and stay in, so there’s no sewing and no ironing required. You simply write on the name or message you want with the pen provided, peel the name label off its backing sheet, and stick it onto your item – and you’re done! Stikins ® can be used to label clothing and fabric items, along with other personal items that you want to keep safe, including shoes and bags, lunch boxes and water bottles, books and stationery kits, and digital devices.

Stikins ® should be applied onto the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items and can be applied directly onto personal items. In shoes, they should be applied under the tongue of the shoe or onto the side wall; they should not be applied to the floor of the shoe where they would lie beneath the foot as this will cause the print to disintegrate over time.

The Stikins ® Name Label Kit costs £10 and can be ordered online, by phone, or by post. To order online, simply visit the Buy Stikins ® page and select the Stikins ® Name Label Kit.

We’ve been working on this new product for months and we’re delighted that we finally get to share it with all of our customers – we hope you love it as much as we do.

Head on over to the Stikins ® Page now to place an order for your very own Stikins ® Name Label Kit today.

Name Label FAQs – Packs, Prices, & Payment Methods

Friday, February 10th, 2017

With a new year underway, we thought we’d put together a quick and simple list of all of the answers to our most frequently asked questions about our packs, prices, and payment methods.

name labels -faqs

What pack sizes are available?

We currently offer four different packs, with four or two pack sizes available for each as follows:

Stikins ® name labels Silver name labels Trons ® name transfers Combination packs
N120: 120 Stikins SN120: 120 labels T140: 140 Trons M240: 120 Stikins + 120 silver labels
N90: 90 Stikins SN90: 90 labels T105: 105 Trons
N60: 60 Stikins SN60: 60 labels T70: 70 Trons M120: 60 Stikins + 60 silver labels
N30: 30 Stikins SN30: 30 labels T35: 35 Trons

What do I get in a pack of labels?

Our Stikins ® and silver labels are sent out in packs made up of sheets with 30 name labels per sheet (six rows of five labels); each pack is placed into its own plastic wallet, which has a copy of our Instructions For Use printed on the back. Our Trons ® name transfers are sent out in packs made up of sheets with 35 transfers per sheet (seven rows of five transfers); each pack is placed into its own plastic wallet, which also contains an Instructions For Use sheet and two sheets of silicon (to be used when applying your Trons ®) for each sheet in your pack.

Can I split a pack between different names?

No; every label within a pack must be printed with the same information. You can, however, request text that will allow you to share labels amongst two or more people. For example:

  • Request a surname only to share labels between family members (or an initial and a surname if possible)
  • Request two names (one on each line) and cut your labels in half
  • Request two names as “Name 1 & Name 2” or “Name 1 Or Name 2” and share
  • Request blank labels or a blank line so you can write in the name you need (with a laundry pen)
    Use the spacebar on your keyboard to enter a single blank space in the line(s) that you want leaving blank.

How much does a pack of labels cost?

Our prices for 2017 are as follows:

N120, SN120, T140: £13.50 N60, SN60, T70: £9.00 M240: £20.00
N90, SN90, T105: £11.50 N30, SN30, T35: £6.50 M120: £11.50

Please note that we have increased prices this year; we feel that this is a fair price for our current products as we have invested in making sure that our name labels are made with the best and most advanced materials (to ensure they work as effectively as possible for our customers) and we do not increase our prices every year just for the sake of it. Our last price increase was in October 2013 (40 months ago).

What is included in your prices?

All of our prices include both VAT and standard UK shipping.

Do I have to pay for shipping?

Our prices included standard UK shipping so you won’t have to pay any extra for shipping UNLESS:

  • You choose to upgrade to our guaranteed next (working) day delivery service for £5.75.
  • You choose to have your labels delivered to a non-UK address; shipping is charged at £1.50 per pack and we currently offer delivery to the following countries:
    Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Channel Islands, Corsica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey

Do you offer any discounts?

At the moment, we are currently running a special offer of a 10% discount on ANY order for FOUR or more packs. If you add four (or more) packs to your basket, a 10% discount will automatically be applied to your order when you checkout.

From time to time, we may offer other discounts as part of limited time only offers; we will advertise these offers on our website, blog, social media pages, and via email to customers who have opted to receive such emails from us.

We also offer a 15% discount to nursing homes and residential care home facilities who wish to order name labels in bulk on behalf of their residents – please contact our Customer Service Team for more information.

What is the most cost effective pack to order?

Our larger packs (N120, SN120, T140, M240) are the most cost effective options as they have a lower price per label than our smaller packs AND you don’t have to use all of your labels at once – so you can use some and then store the rest away for future use.
You must store your name labels in a suitable place to ensure that they retain their original quality; we recommend keeping them in their original packing and putting them somewhere dry, out of direct sunlight, and preferably at room temperature.

We also recommend choosing our Stikins ® name labels; these multipurpose name labels can be used to label clothing and fabric items AND personal items, which means you only need to buy the one pack to be able to label all of your items.

How do I (order and) pay for my name labels?

We offer a variety of payment methods, depending on the way you choose to place your order:
Ordering online: order at any time and pay by credit/debit card or via PayPal
Ordering by phone: order Monday-Friday (9am-5pm) and pay by credit/debit card
Ordering by post: order at any time and pay by cheque
