Keeping your child’s school uniform safe with Stikets personalised clothes labels

Keeping your child’s school uniform safe with Stikets personalised clothes labels

When Leo started his new school back in May last year he had three school jumpers. Want to know how many he has now not even 12 months later? One. He has one school jumper. There seems to be a black hole in that school from which school uniforms can never return but Leo losing most of his school uniform is partly my fault too. I didn’t label them. I did scrawl his name onto the label with pen but obviously not well enough to survive the multiple washes they had to endure. Once Leo took his jumper off at school it was only going to be a matter of time before they got lost or taken home by someone else by mistake. Luckily for me, Stikets got in touch to ask if I would review their personalised iron-on labels. It looks like I can save Leo’s last school jumper from the school uniform eating black hole after all! Here is my review of the Stikets labels, they are easy to use, completely customisable and can handle as many trips through the washing machine as your little ones uniform can. Stick around to the end of the post for your chance to WIN your own pack of Stikets labels.

Keeping your child’s school uniform safe with Stikets clothes labels – review and giveaway

I was sent a basic value pack from Stikets to try out. This pack includes:

  • 48 small Iron-On Clothing Labels
  • 84 name stickers for objects (36 minis, 24 small, 20 medium, 4 big)
  • 8 shoe labels (4 pairs of shoes)
  • 2 luggage tags

The Stikets basic value pack costs £19.95 and you get so much for your money. The labels can be fully customised using the Stiketss website. You can choose from several fonts, background colours and patterns and can even select a little character icon to put next to your child’s name on the labels. I went for a bright yellow with pale yellow stars in the background and chose the lion face as we call Leo Leo The Lion.

The name stickers and shoe labels are just basic adhesive stickers and really easy to use. I have put one on Leo’s homework book, reading record and put the little feet stickers into his school shoes. Even for children who can’t read their own name yet, these labels are great as they can recognise the colours/characters when looking for their shoes or uniform after P.E, for example.

The luggage tags are great for book bags and P.E bags and fabric lunchboxes. There have been a couple of times Leo has come home with the wrong bookbag so I am hoping he will always remember to pick up his own from now on, you can’t exactly miss that bright yellow tag.

The Iron-on labels are really quick and easy to use. You simply peel the label from it’s backing, place it on the label in the clothes and pop the parchment paper provided over the top of it. With your iron set to full and the steam setting turned off, you simply need to press hard and move the iron around for ten seconds or so and you’re done! It really is that easy. The labels are stuck in place immediately and I can already tell they are going to stay firmly in place for a long time to come. Of course, the real test will be to see how they survive the washing machine but I am confident they are not going to peel at the edges and fall off, they are seriously stuck on. I would have liked the iron on labels to come in a variety of sizes like the adhesive name stickers as I did struggle to get the labels to fit onto the small space in Leo’s school T-shirts. They were the perfect size for his trousers and jumper though and I guess I could have always cut a little bit off either side to make them fit perfectly on his T-shirt labels too.

I am really impressed with the Stikets labels and I am definitely going to be using them on every school uniform I buy from now on. I wish I had used them sooner and maybe then we wouldn’t be trying to get through the week with just one school jumper. The fact that the Stikets labels are resistant to the washing machine and tumble dryer is brilliant, no one wants to spend money just for the labels to fall off after a couple of washes. I highly recommend Stikets if you have a little one starting school or nursery and you want to keep their uniform safe from getting lost.

    These look so convenient and you go so many! Sometimes they peel off but these look very secure. Love how you can label shoes too! X

  2. January 17, 2019 / 11:51 am

    That value pack sounds brilliant. I love how there’s also stickers for shoes and tags for bags. It’s so easy for children to mix up each others things in school if they’re not labelled. And it sounds like this company has everything covered!

    I need some of these for my husband who’s a runner and goes to lots of runner/charity meet ups for motor neurone disease association – he’s always losing his stuff which gets v expensive.

    I need some of these for my husband – he’s a runner and is alway going to charity meet ups for Motor neurone disease – he’s always losing his stuff which as you say gets expensive.

    These are really cute! But moreover much needed because the kids are forever mislaying their stuff at school aren’t they? No hope of retrieving it with no name on it…

  6. January 17, 2019 / 1:57 pm

    These are so bright and colourful and easy too. I use the sew on labels but will definitely be checking these out now.

    My little one has at least 20 pieces of school clothing and that’s not including underwear, shoes, plimsolls and sundries that also need labelling. The labels would be so handy for all of her school gear.

  8. January 18, 2019 / 12:40 pm

    These are such cute labels when I was young, I used to lose too many school uniforms and PE kits or come back with some worn out ones. Mum started sewing our names into the clothes and it helped

    I’ve no idea! I have 5 kids so trying to keep track on how many items they have is difficult.

    With PE, Football, Forrest school, coat,book bag and all footwear and his normal uniform, my son has at least 40 items that need labelling for school.

  14. January 19, 2019 / 9:02 am

    We have a set like this, and they’re an absolute life saver. Love that I can iron them on instead of sewing. And the shoe labels are genius! Especially when all kids school shoes look the same.

    This is very helpful for moms to put have identification to their kid’s things. It works not only for kids but for adults also.
