A Very Merry Christmas from Label Planet!

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Merry Christmas from all of us at Label Planet!

On this Eve of Christmas Eve, we would like to take a moment to say a big thank you to all of our wonderful customers who have ordered labels from us in 2016. We’ve had a brilliant year and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support over the last twelve months. Hopefully 2017 will be just as good, if not even better!

Whatever plans you’ve got for the rest of the year, we wish you and your family all the very best for this Christmastime and we hope you have a fabulously festive time celebrating in style!

See you in 2017!

We Wish You All A Wonderfully Weird Halloween…

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Yes, tonight is the night that ghouls and ghosts are free to roam the Earth and we hope you have a spooktacular time tonight!

Whether you’re donning your most delightfully devilish costume to scare your neighbours (go trick or treating) or raise some hell (have a party with friends), spending the night on (or behind) the sofa with a line-up of scary films, or simply stuffing your face with sugary goodness because, well, it’s Halloween – we hope you have a wickedly good time!

And Back Again! (Post-Easter Update)

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

We’re open again after our extended Easter break.

We’ve been hard at work processing all of the orders, sample requests, and emails that we received over the break and we’re delighted to say that we’re pretty much up to date.

Orders placed over our Easter break were processed yesterday, with orders of stocked items being despatched by Royal Mail’s first class service (under 250 sheets) or next working day carrier (250+ sheets) and made to order items being processed for manufacture and/or despatch.

We’re working through the remainder of our orders, emails, and sample requests – so if you haven’t heard back from us yet, please don’t worry – we’ll be in touch as soon as we can. If you have any queries or concerns – whether you placed an order before or during our Easter break or you want to place an order now – please get in touch and our Customer Service team will be happy to help.

A Happy Easter From Label Planet!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Yes, Easter is here early this year and we hope you have a most egg-cellent time over the Easter break, whether you’re hopping off like the Easter Bunny for a short break away or simply relaxing at home with a huge stash of Easter Eggs.

Here at Label Planet, we will be closing for an extended Easter break from 5pm today and will re-open on Monday 4th April.

All orders placed online during this period will be processed upon our return; if you have any queries or concerns, please send us an email and we will endeavour to respond as soon as we can when we return.

A Happy New Year To All From Label Planet!

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

We hope that all of our customers (and assorted friends and family) have had a wonderful holiday and a fantastic start to the New Year – with many great and wonderful things to come (& perhaps even a new year’s resolution to buy more labels!).

Here at Label Planet, we’ve been working away to process orders and respond to correspondence that we received over the Christmas break. All orders placed over the holidays were processed yesterday (Monday 4th January); stocked items were despatched either via Royal Mail’s first class service or next working day carrier service, with non-stocked (made to order) items being processed for manufacture/despatch. If you have any concerns or queries about an order you placed during the Christmas holidays (or an order you want to place now), please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.

New orders are being processed and despatched as usual; for despatch and delivery information, please visit our Delivery Information Pages.

Happy Holidays From Label Planet!

We wish you all the very best for the Christmas Holidays & the New Year!

Whatever your plans are for this year (and the next!), we hope they are full of festive sparkle and magic, and that your Christmastime is both very merry and very bright (with just a touch of snow for that perfect White Christmas).

It’s Your Last Chance To Order Labels Before Christmas

Monday, December 21st, 2015

It’s the last few days before Christmas, so here’s everything you need to know if you want to order labels before or during the Christmas holidays.

Last Orders Please
We will be processing and despatching orders Monday-Wednesday this week.

Customers should bear in mind that the last recommended posting date for First Class mail (our standard delivery service for small quantities) is today. After today, only items that are placed on guaranteed next working day delivery services will be delivered before Christmas. While orders of 250+ sheets will be put on a next working day carrier service, we would advise customers ordering fewer sheets to consider upgrading to a guaranteed next day delivery option (available online or by phone).

We would also advise that only stocked items are now available for delivery before Christmas. If you have any doubts about whether or not the items you wish to order are available for despatch AND delivery before Christmas, please get in touch with us BEFORE placing an order so we can confirm the despatch/delivery information for you.

The Arrival Of the New Year (‘s Labels)
Any orders placed after 3pm on Wednesday and those placed over the Christmas Holidays will be processed upon our return on Monday 4th January.

Getting In Touch With Us
While we will be closed for the Christmas Holidays, you can still send us an email if there is anything you need to query or discuss with us in the New Year. We will endeavour to respond to all correspondence as soon as we can, once our offices re-open on Monday 4th January.

How Many Ways Can You Use Labels At Christmas? (Hint: Probably More Than You Think!)

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Over the years, we’ve heard from hundreds of customers who want to buy labels for Christmas – but some of them have surprised us with the Christmas Capers they had in store for their labels.

Most of our labels end up on Christmas cards and parcels, as gift tags and wrapping decorations, as Christmas labels on products and packaging, or as seasonal extras for Christmas events and promotions. Some of them, however, are destined for slightly more unusual festive favours:

  • Playing pieces to be used in homemade Christmas board games and card games, prompts for rounds of “Who Am I?”, and even Christmas variations of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” (although with less “pin” and more “stick”).
  • Elements for Christmas Scavenger Hunts, including directions and all-important clues!
  • Stick on Christmas hats that won’t fall off – even if you fall asleep!
  • Homemade Christmas decorations, including wall decorations, tree decorations, and homemade Advent Calendars.
  • Labels for homemade goodies, including all kinds of Christmas biscuits and cakes, jars of Christmas condiments, along with one or two (or simply a few) bottles of homemade wine, beer, or whisky.
  • Labels on a Family Tree, created as a Christmas gift for extended family members.
  • Elements in homemade photo albums; some use labels to add descriptions to their photos, while others print their photos onto labels and stick them into a book or pad to create a homemade album.
  • Homemade beauty gifts, including balms, perfumes, and bath products.
  • Name labels and table place holders at parties and events.
  • Individual and Team Name Badges for use in competitions and tournaments – either to identify competitors or to display scores on scoreboards or tournament boards to show who has progressed through to the next round.
  • Labels for Christmas art exhibitions and Christmas fairs (or fayres if you prefer!).
  • As part of a good old traditional Christmas raffle!

Christmas Holidays 2015: Closing Dates For Label Planet

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

Please note that we will close for the Christmas Holidays on Wednesday 23rd December, and will re-open on Monday 4th January.

Any orders placed over the Christmas Holidays will be processed upon our return.

We will continue to process orders up until Wednesday afternoon, but we would remind customers that delivery times are longer than usual due to the Christmas period.

Stocked Items
Stocked items are available for same day despatch; smaller orders (less than 250 sheets) will be sent via Royal Mail’s First Class service (NOT a guaranteed next day delivery option and likely to be delayed during the Christmas Period) and larger orders (250+ sheets) will be sent via next working day carrier. Customers ordering smaller quantities are advised to upgrade to a guaranteed next day delivery service (available online and by phone). Orders of Stocked Items will be processed and despatched up to 4:30pm (small orders) or 3pm (larger orders).

Non-Stocked Items
Non-stocked items are made to order; usually these items are despatched within five working days, HOWEVER, customers should remember that, just as delivery times are delayed at this time of year due to the huge quantities of items being delivered, manufacturing & despatch times are delayed due to the huge quantities of items being manufactured in time for Christmas. At this time of year despatch is likely to be a MINIMUM of five working days (rather than a maximum) with our synthetic labels (polyester and polyethylene) being despatched in 7-10 working days.

We would advise customers who have any concerns about despatch/delivery estimates for the item(s) they want to order to get in touch with us, so that we can provide them with the most up to date information.

A Happy Halloween (Weekend) From Label Planet!

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Yes, it’s here once more: Halloween Eve!

Okay, so we’re a day early, but we’d like to wish all of our customers a Happy Halloween for the weekend.

We wish you well with all of your spooky endeavours; whether you’re off trick or treating in your creepiest costume or staying in with your favourite cushion for a frightfest of fearsome films – complete with a huge bowl of popcorn (for you) and a huge bowl of sweets (for trick or treaters) – we hope you have a fabulously frightful night!
