So how can you find out what Stikins ® and Trons ® are REALLY like – and if they’re the name label products for you?

The best people to ask are those who use our products, all day and every day; the individuals who have bought these labels for their children, for relatives, or for themselves.

We’ve received nearly 1,000 reviews from our customers to help you make up your mind – so you don’t have to simply take our word for what these labels are like.

And, we’ve had some fantastic responses from customers who have left not only an honest review of our name labels but also hints and tips for fellow customers to help them get the very best out of their labels.

Label Planet: FAQ – I Need Pre-Printed/Printed Labels, Can You Help?

We get many an enquiry from people who have found a label (or labels) on our website that they think might just do the job for them – but they need them printing.

Here at Label Planet, we specialise in supplying labels on A4 sheets for customers to print THEMSELVES on their own laser or inkjet printers at home or at work.

However, we also have a sister company, Label Create, who do offer a printing service and are able to supply printed labels from across the Label Planet range of label products.

Stikins ® & Trons ®: The Little Extras That Make Name Labels Extra Useful

Name labels have a number of obvious benefits; they reduce the risk of items going missing and help identify exactly what belongs to whom, but here’s a few extra benefits that might come in useful.
    For younger children, having name labels in their clothes, on their shoes, and on personal items can help them recognise their own name as they learn to read.
    Labels can be printed with “Left” and “Right” (or any signifier of your choice) and applied to items with both a left and a right (for example, shoes and gloves). If your child has trouble learning the difference between their left and their right, name labels are a simple and fun way to gently remind them of the difference each time they put on (or indeed take off) these items.
    Adding a name label provides you with an opportunity to teach your child the importance of looking after their belongings. If your child knows that their belongings have been labelled, they will have to take responsibility for making sure that they always collect their own things from school – instead of simply grabbing the nearest article of clothing or bag and assuming that it is theirs.
    It’s a nightmare that parents dread; you go out somewhere and become separated from your child. It’s a difficult and frightening situation for all involved but name labels can help your child to react accordingly; adding your contact information (such as a mobile number) to their name labels means that this information is always with your child - whether they use it themselves or have it to hand when an adult asks them for it. While name labels are primarily there to help reunite clothing and items with their owners, they can also help make sure that your child (or an adult acting on their behalf) can get in touch with you should they get lost.
    You can also use name labels to list important medical or allergy information. Adding this information to your child’s clothing or to items such as lunch boxes and medical supplies can act like an additional medical alert that authorities or people providing assistance can refer to should an emergency arise.

Label Planet: Why does it matter if I use an inkjet or a laser printer?

All of our label products are listed along with their printer compatibility; laser, inkjet, or both. While some of our label products can be used with laser AND inkjet printers, there are a number that can only be used with ONE type of printer.

Why is it important to only use laser labels with a laser printer and inkjet labels with an inkjet printer?
Laser printing and inkjet printing are two VERY DIFFERENT methods of printing; products that are intended to be printed using laser or inkjet printers only will be manufactured using materials that work specifically with that particular printing method, in order to get the best possible print.

What are the differences between laser and inkjet printing?
Without getting buried in detail, these printing processes work like this:
  • LASER: static electricity is used to attract (or repel) toner so that it forms the image to be printed on an image drum, before the toner is transferred to the medium being printed and bonded into place using heat and pressure.
  • INKJET: droplets of ink are deposited from a printhead onto the medium being printed, where they dry in place to form the final printed image.
So how do the materials differ?
Materials designed for use with laser printers will have good heat resistance and will allow the toner to be bonded in place on the surface of the material being printed, while materials designed for use with inkjet printers will have a slightly absorbent surface, which will absorb some of the ink droplets and so allow the ink to dry in place more efficiently and accurately, which helps to create a higher quality, higher resolution print.

Alright, but what would happen if I used the wrong material in the wrong printer?
At best, you would end up with extremely low quality print results. If you use laser materials in an inkjet printer, the materials won’t absorb the ink and the ink will fail to dry properly, which could result in smearing and smudging. If you use inkjet materials in a laser printer, the toner won’t bond with the material properly, which will likely result in the print cracking or flaking away entirely.

While you may simply find that your print results aren’t very good, you could also end up with bigger problems as using the wrong materials with the wrong printing method can cause damage to the materials you are printing (such as shrinking or curling) and may even result in damage to your printer.

Therefore, you should ALWAYS check that the labels you are printing are compatible with your printer; our List Of All Material Types page lists the printer compatibility for each of our materials – this information is also available on our product Range Pages and our individual Product Pages.

Label Planet: “Don’t Panic” or How To “Keep Calm & Carry On” When Printing Labels

Our customers cover the entire range of label printers; from those who’ve never tried before (and might be of limited technological knowhow) to those who print labels all day, every day.

Regardless of whether you’re a newcomer or an expert, it is inevitable that – sometimes – things will go wrong. So here’s our list of things to do, so you can keep calm and not panic.
  • Plan Ahead
    Labels tend to be a bit of an afterthought; the last piece in a puzzle that may have been days, weeks, months, or even years in the planning – and this means people often simply don’t leave themselves enough time to get their labels designed AND printed and so they end up encountering problems at the very last minute. While label designing and printing can be a simple and swift process, sometimes it simply isn’t and requires a bit of thought and time to get things just the way you want them.
    So, take the time to think about what you want your labels to do, what you want them to look like, and plan ahead. Give yourself some time to play around with templates and design, so you get an idea of what works (and what doesn’t), what is practical, and what is possible (and, indeed, impossible!). Different software and hardware has different limitations, so you need to make sure you can work with what you’ve got.
    As part of this, consider taking advantage of our free template downloads, our advice pages, and our sample request service.
  • Keep Things Simple
    “Less is more” is a very useful tip to remember when designing labels. Labels are naturally limited in size, which means you need to make the most of the space you’ve got. Simply piling EVERYTHING in and adding EVERY design feature you can think of will only result in a label that’s difficult to design, align, and, then when you’ve finally done your printing, is actually really difficult to read. Think about what you NEED your labels to do and only include the text and design elements that help to accomplish this aim.
  • Use Copy & Paste (But Use It Carefully)
    When designing labels, a useful trick is to set up your design in the top left label first and get it as perfect as you can, before copying and pasting it into the other labels. Most software will provide a paste function that will copy and paste both the design elements you have included in your template AND the formatting and settings you have chosen to get things just right.
    You should take care, however, to think before you paste to make sure that you don’t end up creating problems in your template. Some templates account for the gaps between labels and if you paste INTO these gaps, it can throw off the alignment of the entire template. You should also make sure that your template doesn’t automatically resize itself to account for the size of items that you are pasting into the template and take care that it doesn’t insert any extra space or rows/columns when you paste.
  • Adapt ALL Aspects Of Your Template
    Templates are designed to give a basic framework that you can adapt to suit your individual needs. You will always need to select the format options that will create the precise design that you want and to adapt the margins and layout to produce the best possible result for the specific combination of software and hardware that you have available.
    It isn’t always enough to simply enter your text and/or images; you need to select the formats for that text and/or those images that produce the design you want. If the text and/or images you are adding simply don’t sit where they should or look like they should, you should take a look through all of the available formatting options for those items to find the best possible combination of settings to produce the finished result that you want. If the alignment isn’t quite right, then you may need to adjust the margins, page layout, and printer settings to find the options that work best for the unique combination of software, printer, and label product that you are using.
  • Do A Test Print First
    Once you’ve got your template all set up, it’s so very tempting to simply load up your printer with your labels and press print.
    Our advice is to always do a test print onto blank paper first, so that you can hold the resulting print against a sheet of your labels and confirm for yourself that everything is sitting where it should be – without wasting any of your actual sheets of labels.
    Doing a test print first will weed out any inaccuracies in your template or any issues with your printer settings that could cause problems with the final alignment of your printed labels. All software and printers vary slightly, so what you see on your screen isn’t necessarily what you’ll get when you press print. It might be that you need to make a slight adjustment to your margins to get the print to sit in the perfect position, or your printer may be using settings that simply won’t produce the perfect print. Doing a quick test print first can save you time, money, and a lot of heartache if things go wrong.

Stikins ® & Trons ®: FAQ Special – Prices & Payments

It’s been a while since our last FAQ special so we thought it was high time we did another!

Label Planet: A Grain Of Truth - Never Put Labels Into A Printer Against The Grain

It’s a common phrase in the worlds of general printing and label printing: you should never feed sheets into a printer against the grain.

But what does it mean?
It’s all to do with how paper is made; paper is made up of many, many, many (many) tiny threads or “fibres” of cellulose. During the manufacturing process, these fibres will end up lying in a common direction (usually parallel with the direction of the web (the continuous roll of material that paper is made into) through the machine). The direction that the majority of the fibres lie in is called the “grain”. When the large web is cut down into individual sheets of paper, the fibres will either be parallel with the longest edge of the sheet (known as long-grain or grain-long) or the shortest edge of the sheet (known as short-grain or grain-short).

Paper used for printing and label making is commonly cut so that the grain runs parallel with the longest edge; i.e. when the sheet is held portrait, the grain runs from the top of the sheet to the bottom (and from the bottom to the top!).

So why is the grain important?
Paper is strongest and most stable with the grain; for example, if you fold a sheet of paper with the grain, you get a smooth, effective fold, whereas a fold against the grain will result in the paper “springing” back open or cracking along the fold. Similarly, if you tear a sheet of paper with the grain you will find that the edges are clean and straight, while a tear against the grain results in ragged, uneven edges.

When a sheet of paper (or a sheet of paper labels) is fed through a printer, it is pulled through and around a series of rollers, which creates tension in the sheet and it is this that can cause problems if the sheet is fed into the printer against the grain. Attempting to feed a sheet through a printer against the grain can result in poor print results or in the sheet jamming within the printer. If you are printing labels, this can have the added consequence of causing some or all of the labels to begin peeling off the backing sheet, while still inside the machine.

So, you should always feed your labels into your printer with the sheet in a PORTRAIT orientation, so that the NARROW EDGE (210mm) enters the printer first, and the sheet is fed through the printer in the direction of/WITH THE GRAIN.

[It should be noted that SOME manufacturers may produce labels and other paper products where the grain lies parallel with the shortest edge of the sheet. This is more commonly found when the finished sheet is of a larger size than A4 (and the sheet may be either long-grain or short-grain); manufacturers will indicate the grain on the packaging, so that you can check this for yourself. At Label Planet, however, all of our products are cut long-grain, so they should ALWAYS be fed into a printer NARROW EDGE leading.]

Label Planet: New Product - Introducing Semi-Gloss White Paper Labels

We’d like to introduce the newest range of labels available from Label Planet: Semi-Gloss White Paper Labels! 

These labels give our customers even more choice when it comes to picking the perfect paper label by providing a happy medium between the full gloss and the full matt finishes of our other paper labels.

You could say it’s sort of our version of Goldilocks & The Three Bears!

If you find that matt labels are just too dull and plain – but gloss labels are just too bright and shiny – then our semi-gloss labels might be the option that’s “just right” for you.

These paper labels have a smooth semi-gloss finish, which gives them a subtle shine that provides a neat, decorative finish that won't overwhelm your printed message or the original item being labelled.

Semi-gloss labels are suitable for use with laser printers only and can be considered “splashproof”; if they get a little dirty or damp, they can be wiped clean and dry, which makes them a brilliant choice for labelling products and product packaging.

We’re introducing this new product in fifteen stocked sizes (stocked in packs of 25 sheets and available for same day despatch), with a full range of sizes available to order (supplied in boxes of 500 sheets, which are made and despatched within five working days).

To find out more about our semi-gloss labels – or to buy – please visit our Semi-Gloss Labels range page.

Stikins & Trons: FAQ - How Long Will It Take For My Order To Arrive?

All of our UK orders are despatched via Royal Mail’s first class service as standard. We find that around 93% of post sent by this service does arrive the next day, with the rest taking a day or two extra. As this is NOT a guaranteed next day service, we do offer a next day shipping option, which customers can request by phone.

We also ship to a limited number of countries outside of the UK; standard delivery is by Royal Mail’s International Standard service. They aim to deliver items sent by this service to Western Europe in 3-5 working days and to the Rest of the World in 5-7 working days.

Throughout the year we work to a set level of production, to ensure that all of our customers receive their name labels on time and don’t end up applying their labels in a rush.

Our current production level is three working days, which means that we make and despatch all orders within three working days of receiving an order, with production running on Tuesdays and Fridays.

To find out more about our despatch and delivery times, and the countries that we ship to, please visit our Delivery Information page.

Label Planet: Money Matters - Pay What You See With All-Inclusive Prices

Here at Label Planet, we like to make things as simple, quick, and friendly for our customers as we possibly can – and this includes our pricing. All of the prices on our website include VAT and standard UK delivery – so there won’t be any surprises in the checkout.

Like many of our customers, we’ve experienced the frustration of shopping online, reaching the checkout, and suddenly finding that the perfect price we thought we’d found wasn’t looking so perfect anymore.

So, we’ve put our final prices up front; we include the VAT and standard UK delivery in our prices so you can see what you’ll be paying before you enter the checkout.

So I’ll NEVER have to pay more?
No - UNLESS you require a special delivery option – and we’ll only ever charge you what the Royal Mail/carrier service charges us; we don’t add on our own extra fees for choosing a faster delivery service.

You will need to pay for delivery if you:
  • Require a special guaranteed delivery option
  • Require your order to be delivered to Ireland
Shipping to Ireland is calculated based on the weight of your particular order, which means we can only accept orders for Southern Ireland by phone. Simply call to let us know the items and quantities you wish to order and we will provide you with a quote for the price of your items and the shipping cost that applies to those items.

Please note we do NOT ship outside of the UK & Ireland. For more information about our despatch & delivery services, please visit our Delivery Information pages.

Stikins & Trons: A Helping Hand with Raising Funds for all Schools, Groups, and Organisations

Label Planet: There Are 1,000,001 Reasons To Request A Sample…

…Because There Are 1,000,001 Different Ways To Use Labels!

Okay, so perhaps that title was a little misleading but one of the most important reasons to request a sample is to make sure that the labels you want to purchase are suitable for the labelling application you have in mind.

Our customers purchase labels for a whole heap of different labelling applications – maybe even more than the 1,000,001 of our title – and every single one of these labelling applications will involve labels being used in a completely unique set of conditions, including the surface they are applied to and the environment in which they are used and/or stored.

While we can offer advice on choosing the best label for the job, we cannot guarantee that a label will work perfectly in the unique conditions of an individual customer’s particular labelling application. The bottom line is, while we are always happy to discuss a customer’s requirements and offer the best advice that we can, there is simply no substitute for testing the labels in the exact environment and conditions that they are required for.

Getting a sample also means you have a chance to test how well your printer works with labels, to perfect your design, and to check if the labels look just right. 

 To request a sample, all you need to do is fill in our Sample Request Form and await your samples!

Please be as specific as possible with your sample request and provide as much information as you can; this way we can supply you with the best selection of samples and (if necessary) offer additional advice for the labelling application you have in mind to help you get the best possible results.

Stikins & Trons: Why Should I Use Name Labels?

It’s a common question and many people feel that they don’t have the time or the money to spend on name labels. However, we’d argue (as you might expect) that there are far more benefits to using name labels than you might realise, both practical and personal in nature.
  • Save Money
    Yes, name labels can save you money; our name labels are most commonly used on school uniform and equipment, which is often quite expensive to purchase. Schools often have extensive uniform lists as well as requirements for textbooks and specific equipment for most, if not all, subjects. Ensuring that your child has every item on these lists often means spending quite a lot of money – money that you will have to pay again if these items go missing. Labelling your child’s uniform and equipment means that lost items are much more likely to be returned and you won’t end up having to pay for replacements.
  • Save Time
    Name labels are a fantastic way to get organised, particularly if you’ve got a big family. With name labels, it’s easy to sort out what belongs to whom; whether you’re sorting out washing or just tidying up personal items at home. You also save the time that you’d need to spend shopping for replacement items or visiting the school to root through their lost property collection in the hopes of retrieving your child’s uniform or possessions.
  • Prevent Arguments
    It’s common for arguments to flare up when siblings have similar or matching clothing and possessions, whether it’s stuff for school or their own personal items. Adding name labels to clothing and personal items is a quick and easy way to settle any debates about what belongs to whom.
  • Prevent Distress
    Our name labels are often bought by customers on behalf of relatives or friends who are in nursing or residential care homes. In these situations, adding a name label is a simple way to make sure that clothing and personal items are always returned to their rightful owner. In these facilities, clothing is washed in laundry departments where it is possible that clothing may be mixed up and residents often share communal areas where personal items may be moved around or go missing. Labelling clothing and personal items with a name label can prevent the distress caused when these items – often of significant sentimental value – go missing.
    Children are also likely to take personal items to school to share with friends, which often leads to distress if these items are lost. Again, adding a name label is a simple way to help avoid the upsetting situation of your child losing something that is precious to them.
  • Provide Important Information In An Emergency
    Name labels can provide information that may prove vital in an emergency. If you include contact information on your name labels, this information is always on hand should your child ever get lost.
    You can also have name labels printed with medical and allergy information, so that this information is available in the event of an emergency, which will allow people nearby to react accordingly and provide the correct assistance. These labels are particularly useful for labelling lunch boxes and water bottles, labelling medical supplies, or to create extra medical alerts such as homemade medical bracelets.

Stikins & Trons: FAQ – What’s Included In My Order?

We want to make sure that all of our customers get the very best out of their name labels, which is why we send out a few extras with each order to make your labels as quick and easy to use as possible.

So what’s included in your order?
  • Letter/Receipt
    The covering letter contains the details of your order including: a Customer Reference Number (which you can quote if you need to contact us with any queries about your order or to repeat a previous order), the contents of your order (the packs you ordered and the text requested for each one), and the cost of your order (including the VAT and total amount paid).
  • A5 Information Leaflet
    Our information leaflet contains some general information about our Stikins name labels and our Trons name transfers. We’ve also included a list of the ways you can order Stikins and Trons, with the back of the leaflet providing an order form that can be used to order more name labels by post.
  • Stikins Name Labels
    Each set of name labels is sent in its own transparent bag, which is printed with an easy to follow set of instructions for use. This means that if you don’t use all your Stikins at once, you can store them safely in the bag until you need them (and the instructions) again.
  • Trons Name Transfers
    Our Trons name transfers are also sent in transparent bags; each bag contains your Trons name transfers, two sheets of silicon per sheet of name transfers, and a step by step guide to applying your Trons. Like the Stikins packs, this means that you can safely store your Trons for future use, along with those all-important instructions.
Each set of Stikins and Trons is sent in its own bag to ensure that there’ll be no mix ups between the sets or any confusion between your Stikins and your Trons.

Of course, you might have a question that isn’t answered by the information included with your order. If this is the case, take a look through our information pages on our website or get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to answer any query that you might have.
