Stikins ® & Trons ®: FAQ – Can I Have Special Characters Printed On My Name Labels?


We often have customers getting in touch with us because they want to know if they can include special characters in their order – whether they’re looking to make their labels a bit more fun with a picture or they want to include accented characters in one or more of the names – so here’s a quick fire guide to what we can and cannot print.

Special Characters/Pictures/Emojis: NO
Our system is only able to process and print standard alphanumerical characters and punctuation marks. We cannot print any sort of picture or image, whether in the specific form of an emoji or a special character that creates a shape or image.

Emoticons: SOME
While we cannot print image based emoticons, we are able to reproduce the more traditional emoticons based on punctuation marks (and text); so if you’ve picked up the art of emoticons along the way then you can, of course, add in some punctuations marks to add a bit of fun to your (>^__^> name labels! <^__^<)

Accented Characters: SOME
Our system can process alphanumerical characters and punctuation marks that fall within the Standard European range of ASCII characters; this includes a number of accented characters as follows:
0192 or 183Á
0193 or 181Â
0194 or 182Ä
0196 or 142Ã
0195 or 199Å
0197 or 143

  ý0253 or 236  Ÿ0159  ƒ0131 or 159
      ÿ0255 or 152  ß0223 or 225
Unfortunately, if the accented character you require falls outside of this basic range of ASCII characters, we will be unable to print this character as part of your order.
