School Fundraising Alert – Have You Requested Your Free Samples Yet?

Friday, June 8th, 2018

stikins school fundraising request your free samples

We are once again offering our school fundraising partners the opportunity to request free personalised samples for all of their new starters BUT TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

This service is only available until the end of June, so if you’ve been thinking about requesting samples – now’s the time to act!

What Is The Stikins School Fundraising Scheme?

Our school fundraising scheme allows schools and PTAs (as well as children’s groups / clubs) to raise money by earning commission on sales of our name labels. This also helps to promote the use of name labels. You should find that this reduces the amount of time and resources you spend dealing with lost property.

We assign each of our fundraising partners a unique school fundraising number. Every order we receive where that number is quoted will earn commission for the school. Our basic rate of commission is 15% but you can double this to 30% by adding a link to our website on the school or PTA website. This helps to boost the number of parents ordering name labels by making it even easier for them to order. The link can also be set up to autofill your fundraising number. This means every order placed via the link will count towards your commission total (even if parents forget the number).

We keep track of the commission earned and send out a commission cheque once a year in October. There’s no sign up fee or ongoing costs required to participate. We provide free fundraising materials and resources to help schools and PTAs to promote the scheme – and boost their fundraising totals. These resources include our annual offer of free personalised samples for new intake.

What Is Your School Fundraising Offer?

You can request five personalised Stikins for each of your new intake starting in September. Each child will receive five personalised name labels individually packed with Instructions For Use and a parent leaflet.

We find that these samples greatly boost the amount of parents who order name labels. Parents can see for themselves how easy it is to use stick on name labels to label almost anything and everything.

How Do I Request Free Samples For My School?

It’s really easy! You can fill in our online School Fundraising Requests Form or give our Customer Service Team a call. We’re available Monday to Friday, from 9am-5pm – or you can drop us an email at any time.

Once you’ve let us know that you want samples, you need to email the names you need printing. Request full names or partial names if the school is reluctant to release full names (e.g. initial + last name/first name + initial). Send the names in an Excel spreadsheet with first names in the first column and surnames in the second column.

In light of the introduction of GDPR we have introduced a new Privacy Policy, which can be found on our website here. We have also produced a GDPR Statement, which relates specifically to our free sample offer. If you would like to receive a copy of this statement, please get in touch.

We offer personalised samples because non-personalised samples have failed to provide noticeable benefits to parents and our fundraising partners. We use your list for the sole purpose of printing the samples. It is never used for any other purpose nor is it released to any third parties. All copies of the list are deleted from our system as soon as your samples have been printed.

Why Can’t I Request Samples After June?

We run our offer in May and June for practical reasons. Intake lists are being formalised and schools are in contact with the parents of new starters. Sending out samples when parents are really engaged with the school and aware of the imminent need to purchase (and label) school uniform and equipment produces a much higher success rate than any other time of the year.

This level of engagement drops in July. Schools start to close for the summer holidays, which means that no one is available to co-ordinate sending out samples. Families are busy preparing for their summer holidays and they won’t have the time (or the inclination) to think about school name labels. We also have less time to produce samples as we make our own preparations for the summer season.

Request Your Free School Fundraising Samples Today

Get it off your to-do list and request your free samples today. You can contact our Customer Service Team by phone or email (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm) or fill in our online School Fundraising Requests form. Remember to email us the list of names or we can’t get your samples sorted! You can also get in touch with us if you have any questions or queries about our samples, our school fundraising scheme, our privacy policy – or anything else!

Stikins School Fundraising Presents: Some Fabulously Feline Names

Today marks the 37th anniversary of the debut of the musical Cats. So, while we were working on our school fundraising scheme for the summer, we also started thinking about the cat-inspired names that we’ve printed over the years.

While we’ve never printed name tags for a Grizabella, Macavity, or indeed a Rum Tum Tugger, there are plenty of names we have printed with a distinctly feline feel, including…

stikins cat name tags

Stikins School Fundraising Presents: Some Fabulous School Fundraising Samples

All this month, we’re helping our School Fundraising partners to prepare information packs for September’s new intake. Many schools are organising open days and information evenings for the parents of new starters. This may include creating information packs to prepare families for a new start at a new school.

This is a brilliant opportunity to spread the message about using name tags to defeat the problem of lost property, while raising money along the way. With the Stikins school fundraising scheme, schools and PTAs can earn up to 30% commission on sales of name tags made by parents.

What’s more, we’re offering plenty of free fundraising materials to help you spread the word and boost your fundraising totals for this year. This includes posters to put up around school, free parent leaflets to send home, and our fantastic free samples offer.

We will print five Stikins name tags for each of your new starters. Each set will be individually packed with its own parent leaflet and instructions for use. We then send the samples to the school to be distributed to new starters.

Request Free Samples And School Fundraising Materials

To request any of our free fundraising materials, you can either fill in our online School Fundraising Request form or simply get in touch with our Customer Service Team.

To request personalised samples, you will need to email us a list of the names you would like printing. An Excel spreadsheet is best, with the first names in the first columns and the surnames in the second column.

Data Privacy

We request a list of names for the sole purpose of printing your free samples. We load your list into our print system, print your samples, and then delete all copies of the list. If you cannot send full names, we recommend more anonymous alternatives such as initials and class name.

School Fundraising With Stikins Name Labels

Friday, April 20th, 2018

School Fundraising with Stikins name labels

Introducing The Stikins School Fundraising Scheme

In addition to selling stick on name labels, we also run a school fundraising scheme. This scheme allows schools and PTAs to raise money by earning commission on sales of Stikins.

Our fundraising scheme is designed to be easy, useful, rewarding, and cost-effective.

EASY SCHOOL FUNDRAISING:

Once you’ve signed up to our scheme, we allocate your school or PTA a unique fundraising number. Any order we receive where that number is quoted will earn commission for your school or PTA.

All you need to do is make sure parents know about Stikins name labels and your school fundraising number.

We supply free fundraising materials (like parent leaflets) for you to hand out to parents and we deal with parents directly when they order name labels from us. We track your commission earnings and send out a commission cheque automatically in October each year.

REWARDING SCHOOL FUNDRAISING:

The Stikins school fundraising scheme has the highest name labels commission rate in the UK. While our basic rate for all our fundraising partners is 15%, you can double this to 30% by adding a link to Stikins on the school or PTA website.

There is no joining fee or costs required to participate in our scheme.

USEFUL SCHOOL FUNDRAISING:

Our scheme is a really simple and stress-free way for schools and PTAs to raise money. It also has the additional benefit of promoting the use of name labels. This can help to seriously reduce the amount of lost property in school.

School uniform labels make it easier for pupils to keep track of their belongings. They also prevent lost property going unclaimed because pupils refuse to take items that – possibly – aren’t actually their belongings.

Joining The Stikins Name Labels Fundraising Scheme

To join our school fundraising scheme, you simply need to fill in our School Fundraising Requests Form. When signing up, you can request any of our free fundraising materials (including our School Fundraising Pack, Parent Leaflets, Posters, and Free Samples *).

We then allocate you with your unique school fundraising number and you let parents know about the scheme (and that all important number).

If you have any questions or queries – or ideas on how to improve the fundraising scheme – you can contact our Customer Service Team, who will be happy to help!

* Get Free Samples Of School Name Labels With The Stikins Fundraising Scheme

Every year, we give our fundraising partners the chance to request free personalised name labels for all of their new starters. These samples include five school labels for each new starter. Each set of stick on name labels is individually packed with instructions for use and a parent leaflet and then the samples are sent to the school for distribution.

If you have a link on the school or PTA website, you may request free samples for the ENTIRE school. This offer is available once per school but you can request samples for new starters every year.

To print the samples, we will need a list of names. Some schools request first name and surname, while others prefer an initial and surname. It is best to send these in an Excel spreadsheet with the first names in the first column and the surnames in the second column. If you are using initials, simply send the names in one column.

If you have requested a sample for the whole school, we will pack your name labels into class groups if you include these in your file.

We only use the file to print your sample school labels; once this has been done, the file is completely deleted from our systems.

We print free samples of school labels in May, June, and September. To request your free sample, simply fill in our School Requests Form and then email your list of names to us at info@labelplanet.co.uk.

Congratulations To All Our School Fundraising Partners Who Have Taken On A #SportRelief Challenge!

school fundraising name labels

A Massive Well Done To Everyone From The Stikins Name Labels Team!

Yes, today is the last day of a fantastic week of events taking place for Sport Relief.

People of all ages have been taking part in their own personal challenges to raise money for Sport Relief; getting in the pool, jumping on their bike, or just putting on their running shoes to do their part – including a number of our school partners who have put together some fantastic events to encourage their students to get active AND get fundraising.

So, whether you’ve run a marathon, walked a mile, or taken a meandering stroll with the dog, we’d like to say CONGRATULATIONS and we hope you’ve had a brilliant time along the way!

Stikins: Name Labels For All Your Sporting Gear

DID YOU KNOW: Stikins name labels aren’t just clothing labels for school uniform! They can also be used to label all sorts of sporting gear – from P.E. kits and gym clothes to a variety of equipment, including boots and trainers, swimming gear and towels, or balls and rackets of all shapes and sizes.

As any parent will know, sports equipment can get very expensive, very quickly, epecially if your children have a habit of losing their stuff, which is easily done when participating in sports at school or in clubs where everyone has to share common spaces such as locker rooms and storage facilities. Applying sticky name labels is a quick and easy way to help make sure that your children will come home with all of their kit.

To order your own set of sporting name labels, head on over to www.stikins.co.uk or give us a call on 01270 668076.

Stikins: Fundraising For Schools & Activity Clubs

DID YOU KNOW: Stikins also operates its own fundraising scheme, open to schools and activity groups, which allows our fundraising partners to raise money by earning commission on sales of name labels.

We allocate each school or group a unique fundraising number and any order of name labels that we receive where that number is quoted will be added to their commission total for the current commission year (which runs from 1st October to 30th September each year). We offer a basic rate of 15% commission to all schools and groups, which they can double to 30% simply by adding a link to their website.

Our fundraising scheme is completely free to join and run; there is no sign up fee and no ongoing costs to keep track of – in fact, it’s completely up to you how much time you spend promoting the scheme and we supply a number of fundraising resources free of charge to help raise awareness amongst parents. This includes free leaflets and posters, along with the opportunity to request free samples.

To find out more about our fundraising scheme or to sign up today, head on over to our School Fundraising Home Page.

Stikins Name Labels Fundraising

Did you know that today is the 48th anniversary of the first broadcast of Sesame Street? The show was developed specifically to use the power of television to prepare young children for school and for life in general. Today, Sesame Street is shown in more than 140 countries (with around 20 international versions), is the longest running American children’s show (last month saw the debut of its 48th season), and it backs around 50 charitable initiatives worldwide to help children follow the Sesame Street motto – to be smarter, stronger, and kinder.

School Fundraising with Stikins ® Name Labels

At Stikins ® we have our own (much smaller) initiative, which offers school fundraising via sales of our school name labels. The scheme is completely free to join and we provide fundraising partners with free leaflets, posters, and samples to help them promote the scheme to parents.

To join, you simply need to give us a call or fill in our online form; you’ll be assigned a unique school fundraising number and ANY order we receive for stick on name labels that quotes your fundraising number will count towards your commission total. We keep track of your commission and send you a cheque in October/November.

Our school and PTA fundraising scheme offers a basic 15% commission rate, which can be doubled to 30% by adding a fundraising link on the school or PTA website. This makes it really easy for parents to order school labels – whether they need school uniform labels, stick on labels for lunch bottles and P.E. equipment, or general purpose name stickers and name labels for those “essentials” that their children refuse to leave at home. The link can even automatically add your school fundraising number to any order placed by following that link – so even if a parent forgets, their name label order will still count towards your fundraising total.

Our fundraising scheme is also a really easy way to encourage parents to use name labels and name labels on all of the school uniform, equipment, and personal items that their children bring to school each day – which can significantly reduce the amount of lost property that you have to deal with each year.

Join the Stikins® Fundraising Scheme and Request Free Fundraising Resources

Our school fundraising pages include a school fundraising guide, a request form, FAQs, a guide to adding a link to your website, downloads and useful links, and our school fundraising portal (where you can login and keep track of how much commission you’ve earned so far).

Fun Facts About Sesame Street

To celebrate our thirteenth year of running a school fundraising scheme, we’ve put together our favourite thirteen fascinating facts about Sesame Street!

Fact One (that’s ONE fascinating fact)
All of the main characters have four fingers – except for the Cookie Monster who has five. Most Sesame Street characters are also left handed.

Fact Two (that’s TWO fascinating facts)
A number of characters have undergone quite drastic changes over years; Oscar the Grouch was originally orange, Mr Snuffleupagus was deemed too scary (with his bright yellow eyes and eyelashes plus immobile eyelids), Cookie Monster had big pointy teeth, Telly Monster had antennae coming out of his head (and his eyes spun whenever he watched television), and Count von Count had some seriously sinister powers including the ability to hypnotise and stun people.

Fact Three (that’s THREE fascinating facts)
Sesame Street takes its name from the famous Arabian Nights quote – “Open, Sesame!”; various alternatives were considered, including “123 Avenue B” – which had to be dropped because it was a real address in New York City. While the true location of Sesame Street is shrouded in mystery, anyone can visit “Sesame Place” – a Sesame Street theme park based just outside of Philadelphia.

Fact Four (that’s FOUR fascinating facts)
“Sing A Song” was originally chosen as the theme song before being replaced with “Can You Tell Me How To Get To Sesame Street”; there have been at least 10 versions of this song used during the opening and closing credits, although the most successful song from the show has to be Ernie’s “Rubber Duckie” song, which was released as a single in 1970 and reached number 16 in the American music charts.

Fact Five (that’s FIVE fascinating facts)
While many different celebrities have appeared on Sesame Street over the years, the first was James Earl Jones; he dropped by the street to perform a dramatic recitation of the alphabet.

Fact Six (that’s SIX fascinating facts)
“Cookie Monster” is just a nickname that stuck (his original name is Sidney or Sid), the Television Monster’s nickname “Telly” comes from British slang, while Mr Snuffleupagus is actually named Aloysius – although he is usually referred to simply as “Snuffy”.

Fact Seven (that’s SEVEN fascinating facts)
Big Bird is 8 feet and 2 inches tall (that’s 249 cm) and has variously been identified as a lark, part homing pigeon, a golden condor, and part emu – although he is generally assumed to be a canary (or “bigus canarius” to use his own words).

Fact Eight (that’s EIGHT fascinating facts)
Bert and Ernie were the first muppet characters to appear in the Sesame Street pilots (proving to be extremely popular with test audiences). The Cookie Monster, however, predates Sesame Street by three years, having featured in a television advert (albeit one that didn’t air) as “The Wheel-Steeler”, in an IBM training film (where he ate the Coffee Break Machine), as well as in a potato chip advert (as “Arnold”). While international versions of Sesame Street feature characters from the original version, they also have their own unique characters, including a giant polar bear named Basil (Canada), a giant pink turtle named Pong Pagong (Philippines), a hedgehog named Kippi Kippod (Israel), and a camel named No’Man (Kuwait).

Fact Nine (that’s NINE fascinating facts)
While Sesame Street has successfully addressed a variety of tricky topics, they famously struggled with the topic of divorce; a 1992 episode featuring the divorce of Mr Snuffleupagus’ parents upset children so much during testing that the episode was never aired.

Fact Ten (that’s TEN fascinating facts)
Bert wears vertical stripes (to reflect his more “uptight” personality), while Ernie wears horizontal stripes (to reflect his more relaxed personality); Bert has an identical twin brother named Bart and, between them, Bert and Ernie have just one eyebrow.

Fact Eleven (that’s ELEVEN fascinating facts)
Count von Count’s love of counting comes from vampire lore, which suggests that vampires have “arithmomania” (a strong need to count the objects around them) and advises throwing small seeds, rice or wheat, or even handfuls of sand to escape from a vampire – the idea being that the vampire will stop to count each individual item, giving you time to get away! Interestingly, it has never been officially confirmed whether the Count himself is a vampire or not.

Fact Twelve (that’s TWELVE fascinating facts)
Among the muppets featured on Sesame Street, there are “human muppets” (like Bert and Ernie), “animal muppets” (like Big Bird and the Three Bears), “monster muppets” (like Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Grover), and other unique groups including the grouches (like Oscar the Grouch), fairies (like Abby Cadabby), and snuffleupaguses/snuffleupagi (like Mr Snuffleupagus).

Fact Thirteen (that’s THIRTEEN fascinating facts)
Elmo was the first non-human to testify before Congress (in defence of funding for school music programs); during his appearance, Elmo was referred to as “Mr Monster”, wore an elegant Armani suit (from Barney’s), and attempted to eat his microphone. Elmo is related to the Furchester-Fuzz family who run The Furchester Hotel in the UK (assisted by the Cookie Monster who is occasionally visited by his British cousin, the Biscuit Monster).

Celebrate Halloween with Stikins ® Name Labels

With Halloween almost upon us, the team at Stikins ® Name Labels have decided to look at a few suitably scary names from television shows with a decidedly frightening feel! From the Addams Family to the Munsters, along with The Walking Dead and Stranger Things, by way of a few more light-hearted examples (here’s looking at you, Scooby-Doo!), these names are the perfect way to pay a subtle tribute to the joys of celebrating Halloween!

We hope you have a wonderfully weird time celebrating Halloween, whether you’re out and about trick or treating, zombie-shuffling on the dance floor in a creepy costume, or hiding behind a cushion with a well-stocked pile of terrifyingly tasty snacks for a Halloween-themed marathon!

And remember – to keep your hard-earned sweets safe from wandering hands, why not use your Stikins ® Name Labels to label up your stash – and make sure everyone knows to keep off, or else!

Here’s a treat for all our fundraising partners!

We’ll have a “treat” heading your way soon as we are busy preparing commission cheques to send out to all of our school and PTA partners! Your commission earnings will be based on the orders we received where your unique fundraising was quoted between 1st October 2016 – 30th September 2017 AND your rate of commission.

Schools on our basic rate will receive a fundraising total calculated at a 15% commission rate, while those who have applied for our higher rate (by adding a link to their website) will receive a total based on a 30% commission rate.

Cheques will be going out in the post via Royal Mail’s first class service; if you don’t receive anything in the next two weeks please get in touch with us (we allow Royal Mail five working days to deliver items sent on this service).

Remember, you can keep an eye on your commission earnings throughout the year by visiting the Fundraising Account page on our website.

Schools – Have You Requested Your Free Samples Yet?

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Once again, we’re offering schools and PTAs the chance to boost their fundraising totals by requesting free printed samples of our Stikins ® name labels to hand out to parents. In the past, we’ve found that these samples are a really effective way to get more parents to actually buy and use name labels on their children’s school uniform and equipment – which will both reduce the amount of lost property that your school has to deal with and boost the amount of commission that you earn through the Stikins ® fundraising scheme.

name labels free samples

This year, we’re offering free samples to schools in May, June, and September – which means that there are only a few weeks left to request your samples before the summer break.

All you need to do is to request your samples (by emailing us or by filling in our online Request Form) and send us an Excel spreadsheet containing the names you need printing (with the first names in the first column and the surnames in the second column).

If your school has data protection guidelines in place that prevent you from sending full names you can also request samples printed with class names, initials, or just first names or initials and surnames. We only use the spreadsheet of names for the purpose of printing your samples; once your samples have been printed, the spreadsheet is completely deleted from our system.

We pack each sample individually with its own set of instructions and information leaflet. You can request samples for your new intake (who will be starting in September) OR – if you have added a link to your school or PTA website – you can request free samples for the whole school (this offer is available once per school but you can request samples for new intake each year).

Many schools like to send out welcome packs to new starters with information about the school and school uniform requirements, which provides an excellent way to introduce Stikins ® name labels to parents.

Visit our website to Find Out More about our fundraising scheme or to request your Free Samples (and to register if you haven’t already!). Contact us for more information and we’ll help to answer any queries you may have.

 

Happy Middle Name Pride Day!

Friday, March 10th, 2017

name labels middle name

You might not know it but today is “Middle Name Pride Day” – a day for taking all of those middle names that are usually hidden away on forms and official bits of paperwork and bringing them out into the daylight for a big old celebration!

Middle names are often used for “special” names, for example, to honour family members and relatives, to celebrate important things in a family’s life (such as important places, months, or ideals), or simply to have some fun with a slightly “out there” name – that can be used or hidden away depending on whether or not the child finds the name exceptionally good or exceptionally embarrassing later in life.

For most people, their middle name is actually a big part of what makes them “unique” – while you might share your first name with a lot of people, the combination of your first name and middle name can feel much more uniquely “you”.

So, we’ve taken a look at our past orders to have a bit of an investigation into the middle names chosen by our customers…

For girls, the runaway success has to be “Rose”, which was our most popular middle name by far – followed (at a slight distance) by “May/Mae/Mai”. For boys, “J names” proved most popular, with “James” and “John” taking the two top spots.

While traditional names were the most popular choices for middle names, we also found that plenty of parents had decided to get a bit more creative with their middle names, with inspiration coming from all kinds of sources, including animals, nature, myths and legends, and a few pop culture icons as well. Some of our favourites include:

Artemis, Astrid, Belle, Blue, Bluebell, Clover, Cruz, Fox, Harper, Hunter, Star, Storm, Tinkerbell, Valentine, Xena, Wren, Zen, Zephyr, Zigi.

While we don’t get to see all of the middle names that our customers have chosen, we do get a fair amount of initials, and we found a few surprises in our order history:

  • “J” is the most popular letter by far, followed by “A”, “M”, “E”, “L”, and “R”.
  • Least popular is “U”, which had a very unfortunate year in 2016 and appeared in absolutely no orders as a middle initial, followed by “Q”, “Y”, “X”, and “V”, while “Z” proved to be our most popular “unpopular” letter.
  • Girls were most likely to have middle names starting with “R” or “M”, while boys were most likely to have “J” or “A”.
  • While “Q”, “U”, “X”, and “Y” names were all as equally (unpopular) with our customers for boys and girls, “Z” and “C” names had equal popularity.
  • The biggest gaps were between the letters “G”, “I”, and “M” (which were much more popular for girls than boys) and “D”, “H”, and “W” (which were much more popular for boys than girls).

Did You Know: we run a Fundraising Scheme for schools, PTAs, and other activity/youth groups and clubs to allow them to raise money by earning commission on sales of Stikins ® name labels. Schools and groups can earn up to 30% commission on orders of name labels, which they can then put towards any ongoing fundraising goals and projects. There’s no membership fee to pay and no ongoing costs; simply fill in our one-stop registration form to start fundraising all year round!

We’ve just given our Fundraising pages a bit of a makeover to make them even better and easier to use. To take a look and find out more, simply head on over to our Fundraising Home Page today! For more information about our name labels, speak to one of our team today or visit our FAQs page.

Schools & PTAs – Your Commission Cheques Are On Their Way!

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

name labels pta

We’ve finished totting up our totals and commission cheques are making their way to our wonderful partners who have participated in our fundraising scheme during this, our TWELFTH (and best ever!), year.

We’ve had a brilliant response from our partners, including those who have been members of our scheme for years as well as all of our lovely newcomers who have joined us over the last twelve months.

Your commission cheque is based on orders that we received between 1st October 2015 and 30th September 2016 where your unique fundraising number was quoted and will be awarded at either our basic rate of 15% (for schools, nurseries, and PTAs who have registered as members of our fundraising scheme) or our boosted rate of 30% (for members who have added a link to their website).

We hope that you are happy with your commission total and that your cheque will be a welcome contribution to whatever fundraising projects and goals you are striving to achieve.

If, however, you’re disappointed with the amount that you’ve got (or that you’ve received our basic rate of commission rather than our boosted rate), we highly recommend taking a trip to the Fundraising Section of our website and taking a look at our Fundraising Guide and, in particular, our Booster Plan.

Our Booster Plan was created based on our own experiences of running a commission scheme as well as feedback from existing partners and provides schools and PTAs with a list of simple (and free!) things that they can do to boost the amount of commission they earn. For example:

  • Add a link to your school or PTA website and boost your commission rate to 30%
  • Request free parent leaflets to hand out to parents to make them aware of the scheme
  • Request free posters to put up around the school

Visit our Booster Plan page to find out how you can improve on this year’s commission earnings, use our Linking Information page to find out how to add a link to your website (or let us know that you’ve added a link), take a look through our “Really Useful Downloads” page, or visit our School Requests page to order free Parent Leaflets. 

We will be despatching all of our commission cheques THIS WEEK, so if you DON’T receive your commission cheque within the next few weeks, please GET IN TOUCH with us as soon as you can to let us know.

Free Easy Fundraising With Stikins Name Labels From Label Planet

Friday, October 21st, 2016

name labels fundraising

We’ve reached that time of year once more where we start pulling together our records to set up this year’s batch of commission cheques to send out to our existing fundraising partners.

If you aren’t already a member of our fundraising scheme, you might be curious about how our scheme works and how it benefits schools and PTAs – which makes this the ideal blog post for you!

EASY Fundraising with our Name Labels

Here’s how it works:
1) You REGISTER with us by filling in our one-step registration form online or calling our Customer Service Team.
2) We allocate a unique FUNDRAISING NUMBER to your school or PTA (or nursery or sports club or group etc).
3) Any order we receive where that fundraising number is quoted will count towards your commission total and we will keep track of your commission earnings and send out a commission cheque once a year in October.

And that’s it! You don’t need to re-register every year and you don’t need to set aside time and resources to participate. It’s entirely up to you how much time and effort you put into the scheme – if you like, you can simply register and then forget all about it, although this won’t result in a very big cheque at the end of the commission year. As with everything, the more you put in, the more you get out – which is why we’ve put together a Fundraising Guide and Booster Plan to provide you with a simple list of small, quick, and free things that you can do to make a big difference to your commission total.

FREE Fundraising with our Name Labels

There is no fee to join our commission scheme and no ongoing costs to participate. We provide all of our partners with a variety of completely FREE resources that can be used to let parents know about the scheme (and the fundraising number they need to quote) to help them boost the amount of commission they earn, including:

  • Free Fundraising Pack (includes samples of our labels & leaflets and a copy of our Fundraising Guide & Booster Plan)
  • Free Parent Leaflets

EFFECTIVE Fundraising with our Name Labels

All you have to do is make sure that parents know how to order (and what fundraising number to quote) to earn up to 30% commission – the highest name labels commission rate in the UK. We handle everything else – from processing and despatching orders to keeping track of and paying out your commission each year. Our scheme gives you access to fundraising that just works; parents can order from us anytime all year round and your commission will automatically accrue over the commission year. You may even find yourself with some extra time and resources on your hands as more students arrive on school property with their belongings clearly and securely labelled – reducing the mountain of Lost Property that you have to handle.
