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).

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
  • Free Poster
  • Example Letters To Parents
  • Free Samples For Your Pupils/Members (May, June, & September only)

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.

If you would like to find out more our commission scheme, please click on the purple “Fundraising” button on our website to take a look through all of our Fundraising pages and resources. To register, click on the “Fundraising” button and select “School Requests” to use our online registration form OR contact our Customer Service Team to register by phone. 

Earn Commission With Stikins ® Name Labels – The Easiest Fundraising Scheme You’ll Set Up This Year!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

name labels fundraising opportunity

At Label Planet, we’ve been running a fundraising scheme for over 12 years, which allows schools and PTAs (and other groups) to earn commission on orders of name labels.

Like our name labels, we’ve set up our fundraising scheme to be as simple and easy to use as possible, requiring a minimal amount of time and effort from schools and PTAs, who have far more important things to be getting on with, rather than keeping a constant eye on a simple fundraising scheme.

How It Works:
We allocate a unique fundraising number to your school (or PTA) and any order that we receive where that number is quoted will generate commission for your school. We keep track of the commission you’ve earned and at the end of the commission year (which runs from 1st October to 30th September) we send you your commission earnings by cheque – which you can then put towards the fundraising project of your choice.

What You Need To Do:

  1. Let us know that you want to join our fundraising scheme
    (Contact our Customer Service Team or fill in our online Registration Form)
  1. Let parents know about the scheme and your fundraising number

And that’s it!

Our one step registration process gives you instant access to fundraising that runs all year round – with no need to re-register each and every year – and your commission cheque will arrive automatically each October. There’s no fee to join and no ongoing costs to take part – in fact, we also provide schools and PTAs with a number of resources to help them promote the scheme to parents, all of which are completely free.

We handle everything else, from receiving and processing orders throughout the year, to logging and tracking your commission, so there’s really nothing for you to worry about. It’s completely up to you how much time you want to spend on promoting the scheme to parents and there are a number of quick and easy ways to get the message out so that you can get on with other things.

For example:

  • Request parent leaflets to hand out to parents so they know how to order (and what fundraising number to quote).
  • Add a link to your website so that parents can reach our site quickly and easily (increasing the number of orders that count towards your commission total) AND double your commission rate to 30%.
  • Send a letter, email, or text to parents to explain how the fundraising scheme works, how name labels help to prevent the problem of lost property, and perhaps even to give a bit of detail about the specific fundraising project(s) that they will be supporting by purchasing name labels.

Get in Touch with our Team for Name Labels

Schools – Give Your Fundraising Efforts A Boost With Our Commission Booster Plan

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

name labels difference

Tomorrow is the last day of our current commission year, which means that in the next few weeks our fundraising partners will receive their commission cheques to add to their ongoing fundraising projects. If you are one of these schools or PTAs and you decide that you’d like to see if you can beat this year’s earnings next year then we highly recommend taking a look at our Commission Booster Plan.

This Booster Plan is based on feedback from our existing fundraising partners, our experience of running a commission scheme (which has been going now for over 12 years), and from our own research into how well (or not) our partners have done after joining our scheme.

We’ve aimed to create a fundraising scheme that gives schools and PTAs a really easy way to support their fundraising projects with minimal time and effort required to run the scheme; our Booster Plan provides schools with a few simple (and completely free) ways that they can quickly and easily promote awareness of the scheme and boost the amount of commission that they receive.

6 Small Things That Make A Huge Difference:

  1. Schools/PTAs with an individual who is willing to spend a little time promoting the scheme to parents often find that a little passion goes a long way and inspires a much better response from parents – and helps to keep your Fundraising Efforts that extra bit more organised!
  2. Add one of our posters to your PTA or school noticeboard as a reminder to parents; they can take a photo of the poster on their phone, which means they’ll have all the information they need to place an order (along with your fundraising number) whenever they decide they need some name labels.
  3. Put a link to our site on your school or PTA website; this makes it quick and easy for parents to reach our site (which makes it more likely that they’ll take the time to order) AND you can create a link that will automatically fill in your fundraising number on any order placed by following that link (so if parents forget to do it, their order will still count towards your commission total – you’ll also qualify for our higher rate of commission at 30%).
    You may also want to use this link to promote the benefits of ordering name labels to parents; for example, they will be raising money for the school AND buying a product that will help to prevent them (and you) from having to deal with the problem of lost property.
  4. Send parent leaflets home with a covering letter from the school or PTA – again, you can use this letter to promote ALL of the benefits of buying and using name labels, perhaps with some additional details about the projects that will be supported by the commission you earn from our fundraising scheme.
    Alternatively, you may wish to send out an email or text message to let parents know about the scheme.
  5. Rally support amongst the school and PTA; we have a PowerPoint presentation on our website that you can use to explain to interested parties how the scheme works.
  6. Organise your fundraising efforts by making a check list of what you are going to do to promote the scheme along with a note of what needs doing when and by whom.

You can also visit our website to take advantage of our free “helpful extras”, which include the following:

  • Free parent leaflets & labels to distribute to parents so that they know how to order and what fundraising number they need to use.
  • Free poster for your PTA or office notice board.
  • Free Stikins ® name labels as prizes for events such as Christmas or Summer fairs.
  • Free Fundraising Guide with tips and advice for getting the most out of our fundraising scheme.
  • Free example parent letters (or emails) to boost the numbers of parents who order name labels.
  • A fundraising portal on our site that allows you to keep track of how much commission you’ve earned so far.
  • The opportunity to double your commission from 15% to 30% simply by adding a link to your school or PTA website.

Schools – Last Chance To Double Your Commission For 2015/16!

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Name Labels Double Commission

Friday is the 30th September and the last day in our current commission year, which means that soon we’ll be getting to work adding up all of the commission that our school & PTA fundraising partners have earned this year and preparing to send out those all-important cheques.

It also means that this is your last chance to double the commission that you earn for this commission year!

All of our fundraising partners earn a basic rate of 15% commission on any sale of name labels that we receive where their unique fundraising number has been quoted. To qualify for our higher rate of commission – at a fantastic 30% – all you need to do is add a link to your school or PTA site.

REASONS TO ADD A LINK

  1. Boost your commission rate to 30%.
    Not only will you be moved onto our higher rate of commission but we will also backdate this rate to include any commission that you have earned so far during the current commission year (1st October 2015 – 30th September 2016). Plus, as long as the link remains active, you will remain on the higher rate of commission year after year – with absolutely no need to remember to renew or reactivate your higher rate of commission.
  1. Boost the total amount of commission you earn each year.
    Adding a link is one of the easiest and most effective ways to boost the amount of commission that you receive from our fundraising scheme; the link makes it extremely easy for parents to order from us (they simply click on the link to instantly be directed to our site) AND you can create a link that will automatically add your fundraising number to any order that is placed by following the link (so even if parents forget which fundraising number to use or simply forget to add a fundraising number altogether, their order will still count towards your fundraising total).

HOW TO ADD A LINK
Full instructions can be found on our “Linking Your Site To Us” page; your have a choice of adding a simple text link or a full colour banner that will really stand out.

If you want to add a simple text link, you text should be embodied with a URL as follows:
https://www.stikins.co.uk/?PARTNER=12345
(where the “12345” is replaced with your unique fundraising number)

To add a banner link, you can use our HTML Code Generator; simply select the size of banner you would prefer to use and our website will generate the HTML code that you need to add to your website to create the banner.

You may also want to include a few sentences along with your link to help promote the use of name labels AND boost your fundraising efforts; for example, you may want to explain how name labels can help to reduce the amount of Lost Property that parents and staff have to deal with, explain how buying name labels from us can help to raise money for the school, or perhaps even provide parents with a bit of information about the fundraising projects that will be supported by the commission earned on orders of name labels.

You can add your link to whatever part of your site you like; most of our school and PTA partners will usually add their link to the home page, uniform page, parent page, useful links page, or fundraising page (or some combination of these).

If you’re not yet a member of our fundraising scheme, then head on over to our Fundraising Section, which includes information about how our scheme works, a registration page, and plenty of (completely free!) helpful extras to help you promote the scheme to parents.

Any Questions about our Name Labels? Get in Touch with one of our Team

Remember, if you want to receive our 30% rate of commission you must have a WORKING link on your site AND you have to let us know about it! Once you’ve added a link, get in touch with our Customer Service Team OR fill in the Commission Claim Form at the bottom of our “Linking Your Site To Us” page – we’ll confirm that your link is up and working and then upgrade your school to our top rate of commission.

If you’ve already got a link or if you aren’t sure what level of commission your school is currently earning, simply get in touch and we can confirm if your school is set up on our basic or our boosted rate of commission.
