Evie starts school for the first time in September and we are busy getting ready for back to school now. We’ve got her school uniform her bags, her lunchbox and her shoes already (yes, we’re keen) and now we’ve also just got her some name labels.
Over the years I cannot tell you the amount of times Evie has come home with other peoples things in her bags, or the amount of items that she has personally lost at pre-school and nursery because we haven’t labelled things properly. Now she’s going to school where everyone is going to be matching, I’m definitely not going to be making that mistake again.
Just as I started my search for ‘name labels’ to go in Evie’s school clothes, the wonderful personalised label company ‘Stikets‘ got in touch and asked if I could review one of their basic label packs.
There are three things you need to know about Stikets:
- Stikets was a company created by a Mum. She is also doing awesome things to support other Mums and families! More of that below.
- You can get your kids involved in choosing and designing their personalised Stikets labels.
- The labels are durable, high quality and a really amazing price!
We also have a basic pack of Stikets to giveaway to you today and we have an exclusive code so you can get 10% off. Keep reading to find out how you can get your hands on both of these!
Personalising Your Stikets Labels
The first thing I love about Stikets is how easy it is to choose and design your labels. It was also such a fun thing for Evie to get involved in. To choose and create your labels, you simply hop onto the Stikets website. There are a wide range of labels available their are clothing labels, name stickers, shoe labels etc etc. We chose the ‘Basic Pack’ which is perfect for back to school. It includes all of these labels and more.
Once you’ve selected what you want, the fun begins and you can start personalising your labels. Firstly you choose your favourite font out of eight options. Next you choose either the colour, a colour combination or a pattern. Evie chose a colour combination of purples and pinks.
Then you can choose an ‘icon’ to go beside your labels. Evie chose a rainbow but there are over a hundred icons to choose from, in a whole range of categories. While you are choosing your options, you can also see samples of what they’re going to look like so you can easily change your mind if you don’t like what you see.
I also really love that their is no ‘character limit’ in the place where you put their name. This is so handy if your child has a particularly long name or a double barrelled name. When we’d finally settled on our design, we pressed order.
Stikets Personalised Labels Basic Pack
The order arrived in the post so quickly and we were really impressed with the handy booklet that the labels came inside. The booklet has been designed to keep the labels safe and to keep them organised in their different sections.
The Basics Pack contains 142 labels. The labels aren’t just for clothes either. Some of them can be used for a whole variety of different objects. Included in the pack is:
- 48 small iron-on name labels (they’re permanent, washer and dryer resistant)
- 82 name stickers for objects (36 minis, 24 small, 20 medium, 4 big)(they’re microwave and dishwasher resistant)
- 8 shoe labels (4 pairs of shoes)
- 2 small luggage/bag tags
The iron-on labels are great for labelling clothes. We’re going to be using these on Evie’s school uniform. These come in their own little pack and on the back are some easy to follow instructions that show you how to iron the labels on with ease.
There are also other handy adhesive stickers that are good for labelling bottles, books, bikes and scooters, or anything else you need.
Amongst the adhesive stickers are also four pairs of stickers that are shaped like feet. I love these stickers. They’re great for shoes, but what I also love is that they are shaped either like a left foot or a right foot.
This helps your your kids to easily identify which shoe goes on which foot, something my four year old still struggles with from time to time (I know she’s probably not the only one).
Stikets Support Mums
Aside from how fantastic these labels. are, there is one point about this company I really want to touch upon. Readers of Life Unexpected will know that I am a huge, huge advocate for Mums in business and flexible working. I have had the pleasure of interviewing many a Mum who has started her own business (you can read some of those interviews by clicking here: Interview With A Mum In Business).
One of my favourite things about Stikets is that it was set up by a Mum called Stephanie who wanted to create products that were designed especially with families in mind.
Even more amazing is that Stephanie promotes flexible working. Most of her employees are Mums with kids under the age of 6 years old. When she started Stikets, she wished for a company where women could work without giving up on their role as mothers and where, in addition, they could achieve professional fulfilment and build a career for themselves.
So, every time you buy a Stikets packet, just remember you are also helping other Mums and other families too! How awesome is that?
