5 reasons you need name labels in your life


Kids are busy. We get it. There are sandcastles to be built. Books to be read. Hide and Seek games to be won. Naturally the last thing on their mind is, “Where did I leave my lunchbox?”

This is where you come in. Sticking a high quality, personalised name label to your child’s belongings means less time rummaging around the Lost Property box and more time listening to stories about their day. Not all superheroes wear capes, but the ones who do probably have a Stuck On You name label attached to the inside.

Here are 5 reasons you need Stuck On You name labels in your life:

1. Your child has an allergy or medical condition


If your child suffers from a food allergy or medical condition, a clearly marked allergy label can make this obvious to teachers, carers, other parents and even their friends. Choose from bright and bold egg-free, nut-free, dairy-free and wheat-free icons. Allergy Labels and Bag Tags are now available on our website. You could also order our Address Labels, which allow you to add four lines of text. Use this space to highlight a medical condition, and add your address and phone number in case of emergency.

2. Your dishwasher gets a workout

Lunchboxes and food containers endure a lot of wear and tear. From banging around in your child’s backpack to endless cycles in the dishwasher and microwave. You need a label built to withstand the rigours of daily life. Made from the highest quality vinyl with a unique laminate coating, Stuck On You labels are scratchproof, waterproof and easy to apply. They won’t come off in the dishwasher or microwave either. Choose one of our stylish designs and get it printed with your surname to prevent Tupperware going missing at barbecues, picnics, birthday parties and music festivals.

3. You love saving money

Your name label should last as long as the product it’s stuck on. Over time it can become expensive to replace cheap labels that fade, smudge and become scratched. Our high quality vinyl finish boasts an additional laminate coating to make it even more durable. Stick a personalised label to your child’s lunchbox, musical instrument, mobile phone, sports gear and so much more. Just make sure the surface is clean and flat, because sticking these labels to a dimpled surface means water can sneak in and cause it to peel off.

4. Your child has a big, bold personality


Our team of in-house graphic designers has created a range of cute and quirky Stuck On You icons to suit every personality. Once you’ve added your child’s name to the label, you can choose one of these icons to help make it even more unique. Icons are great for children who can’t read yet, because they can identify with their chosen image. Bumblebees, monkeys, turtles, kittens and cupcakes are great for little ones, while older kids will love the range of sports icons, unicorns, mermaids and trains. Of course, these designs are just the tip of the iceberg!

Why not let each child choose their favourite design, font and colour combination. It gives them a sense of ownership and means they are more likely to recognise their belongings. Once you’ve made your selections on the website you can click the “Preview” button to see how it will look once printed.

5. You want to live a more organised life

Trying to keep your household organised during the school term can feel like an uphill task. Why not make it easy on yourself and the rest of the family by giving yourself a head start?

Use the school holidays to get a handle on the whole “It’s Monday morning and I can’t find my shoes/socks/hat/uniform” chaos. Order a big Value Pack and start labelling everything that could possibly go missing. Grab a combination of Iron On labels, Shoe Dots (sweat-resistant, great for sports shoes), Write On Labels (great for labelling meals before popping in the freezer) and a waterproof Bag Tag for each child. This should be enough to get you started, and then you can simply top up your label supplies throughout the year.
