Schools: We Need You (To Tell Us How You Use Your Labels)

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

We have a number of schools who buy labels from us.

While a large number of these buy our LP18/63 for their marking systems, we also get orders for a variety of other products – and it’s made us curious.

We want to help schools in any way we can and, if we know the sorts of labels that come in useful, we will be able to offer better products and better advice to schools who order from us in the future.

So, do you need circles for feedback stickers? Labels for organising the classroom? Stickers that you can use as tools for teaching and revision?

Whatever it is, we want to hear from you.

Wedding Labels on A4 Sheets

Friday, October 12th, 2012

From recent reviews we have received we are surprised to learn how many of our customers are using our labels for weddings. Our Gold, Silver and transparent labels are being used on wedding invitations, and also on wedding reception place cards. They are ideal because customers can choose exactly what they want to print, and try out different versions and fonts using a laser printer.

We have also had wedding couples printing labels for wine bottles and wedding favours.

Customer Calls – Why Don’t You Stock ALL Sizes of A4 Labels?

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

The phone goes and the customer wants labels for laser printing, which are blue, 21.3mm x 47.8mm, 10 to an A4 sheet, with a very strong adhesive.

Guess what?! It is not a label we have in stock…

“What do you mean, you do not have these?” exclaims the customer in disbelief…

One quiet afternoon in April we worked out that to have all of the possible combinations in stock in .1mm increments we would need over 450 million stock lines, and if we allowed 1 metre of shelving for each stock line then our shelving would go round the earth 5 times at the equator.

The reason, therefore, that we do not have everything in stock is easy… we could not get enough label shelving!!!!

At Label Planet, we specialise in supplying blank labels on A4 sheets and aim to provide our customers with the best possible range of label products – with as many of the most popular items available to order from stock for same day despatch. To find out if we stock the labels you want, simply visit the Range Page of the label type you want to buy; stocked items are listed at the TOP of these pages and have a 25 sheet minimum order quantity.

If you’re stuggling to find the labels you want, get in touch with our Customer Service team who will be happy to help with your label requirements.

Where we don’t carry stock of an item, you can still order them as a “made to order” item; these items are made and despatched within five working days (paper items are usually made much sooner). Please note, however, that we DO NOT produce bespoke label sizes and/or material combinations.

Customer Calls – Gold Labels – Coffin Space

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

We got a call from an undertaker who was asking for gold laser labels, 8 to an A4 sheet.

I asked him, out of curiosity, what he was going to use them for…he replied that engraving the brass for coffins was costing a fortune…and “nobody will ever know” if he sticks a gold label on instead.

Very creepy; he bought a pack of 25 sheets, but never bought any more. I like to think that there was some ghostly revenge and he had to switch back to the engraving.

———————————

A gold labels customer called and asked us for advice because they were running out of space. I checked and they had just had a box of 500 sheets.

“How come you are running out of space?” I asked.

“Well, we have to print the label sheets one at a time and they take 6 hours to dry and we are running out of space.”

“Metallic Gold Labels are for printing on a laser printer. Are are you using an inkjet printer?”

“Yes.”

“Do you have a laser printer?”

“Yes. It is next to the inkjet printer.”
