Stikins ® & Trons ®: BIG NEWS - introducing the new STIKINS ® NAME LABEL KIT – the most versatile, multipurpose name label pack – ever!
Yes, the big day is here and we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new version of our Stikins ® name labels in the shape of the Stikins ® Name Label Kit.
The name labels in each kit are made with exactly the same material and unique adhesive as our printed Stikins ®; the ONLY difference is they have a matt finish to allow your written names or messages to stay in place – even after you wash your labelled items.
These easy to use name labels simply stick in and stay in, so there’s no sewing and no ironing required. You simply write on the name or message you want with the pen provided, peel the name label off its backing sheet, and stick it onto your item – and you’re done! Stikins ® can be used to label clothing and fabric items, along with other personal items that you want to keep safe, including shoes and bags, lunch boxes and water bottles, books and stationery kits, and digital devices.
Stikins ® should be applied onto the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items and can be applied directly onto personal items. In shoes, they should be applied under the tongue of the shoe or onto the side wall; they should not be applied to the floor of the shoe where they would lie beneath the foot as this will cause the print to disintegrate over time.
The Stikins ® Name Label Kit costs £10 and can be ordered online, by phone, or by post. To order online, simply visit the Buy Stikins ® page and select the Stikins ® Name Label Kit.
We’ve been working on this new product for months and we’re delighted that we finally get to share it with all of our customers – we hope you love it as much as we do.
Head on over to the Stikins ® Page now to place an order for your very own Stikins ® Name Label Kit today.

Label Planet: Wish You Could Wash Away Your Labels When You Want? – Now You Can With Water Wash Off Labels!
This week, we’re taking a closer look at one of our newest products – Water Wash Off Labels.
Water wash off labels are a pretty ingenious solution to the problem of labelling re-usable containers that need to be emptied, cleaned, and re-labelled on a regular basis - such as ingredient containers in a professional kitchen or bottles and jars used to store homemade condiments and drinks. In any case, it is important that each container is clearly (and securely) labelled AND that those containers aren't damaged when you remove and replace the labels.
In these applications, using a permanent adhesive would hold your labels firmly in place BUT would damage your containers each time you remove the old labels, while using a removable adhesive would prevent your containers from being damaged BUT would also run the risk of your labels coming off earlier than you’d like.
Water wash off labels offer a perfect alternative; they are permanent labels made with a special wash off adhesive, which creates a permanent adhesive bond that breaks down when exposed to water. This means that these labels will be completely permanent (provided the containers are stored in dry conditions) until you decide you no longer need them, at which point you can simply wash the labels away.
In the office, we like to call these labels “Wish Wash Labels”- because when you wish they would wash off, they will! These labels are perfect for all kinds of food and drink applications, because they allow vital information to be securely added to containers AND will wash cleanly away without damaging the containers in the process.
Our water wash off labels are made with paper and are supplied on A4 sheets; they can be printed using inkjet printers and laser printer or they can be handwritten. They are best suited to solid surfaces (such as plastic and glass) and should be stored carefully to preserve the effectiveness of the adhesive.
We have 8 label sizes available to order for same day despatch from stock, along with a further 36 label sizes available to order.
To find out more about our wonderful Water Wash Off Labels or to place an order today, simply head on over to our Water Wash Off range page.
We’d also like to mention that we will be shutting down for an Easter break again this year. We will be closing at 5pm on Thursday 13th April and re-opening on Monday 24th April. Any orders placed online during this period will be processed and despatched upon our return. If you have any questions or queries, please send us an email and we’ll respond as soon as we can once we're back.
