Back-to-School Tips by Stuck On You

Stuck On You are the experts in personalised name labels and products. With the holidays drawing to an end, we’ve put together some tips to make the back-to-school process smoother.

GET INTO GEAR!

Returning to rigid early morning school routines can be tough after a long summer of relaxed bedtimes and long lie-ins. The solution? As the end of holidays approach, wake up 10-15 minutes earlier each day. To provide extra motivation, create fun reasons to wake up earlier, e.g. trips to the beach or park.

To maintain a smooth routine once school has started, Stuck On You has a terrific range of diaries and planners to ensure stress-free mornings and solid homework habits.

LABEL IT OR LOSE IT!

Labelling is your best guarantee that your investment in back-to-school items will not end up languishing in a smelly lost property bin, or finding a new home in another child’s bag.

Labelling is especially important at this time of year with its unpredictable weather and the constant need to put on or take off layers.

Check out our huge range of labels – including our adorable shoe dots!

GET THE KIDS INVOLVED IN LABELLING

Involve your kids in the labelling process so you can make back-to-school time fun for them and easier for you. Let them choose their own label designs, no matter how… quirky. That way, they’ll be more invested in their labelled goods – and less likely to lose them!

By the way, if you still can’t quite let go of the fact that your child didn’t choose that gorgeous art deco-like label design you were coveting, you can always order some for yourself. We’re not just about the kiddies – use us for home office files, kitchen jars, garage boxes.. anything you like, really!

LABEL ON THE FLY

Ever been about to run out the door, only to have a little voice announce that they need a costume for International Country Music Day? (17 September, FYI) As you hastily assemble some big hair and glitter pants – because your knowledge of country music doesn’t extend beyond the 80s – you realise that you actually want this getup to return home so you can repurpose it for Halloween/your office party/International Dress Like A Bee Gee Day (OK I made that one up – but it should exist).

Therefore, it’s handy to have a stash of extra labels for all your unexpected labelling needs, from new readers to the next dress-up day.

LABEL ON THE SLY

If you have safety concerns about your child’s name being visible, or have an older child who prefers discreet labels, it’s a good idea to add extra labels on the inside of items such as bags.

TO GOOD HEALTH!

As colder weather looms, so do those nasty viruses. Personalisation limits the spread of germs as kids are less likely to accidentally drink from the wrong bottle.

We also have Allergy Labels and Bag Tags, which help highlight your child’s allergy to others.

SNACK STRATEGY

Get the kids to help plan their lunches. Our bestselling Bento Boxes provide the perfect inspiration for fun and healthy lunchtimes. You can channel your inner food goddess and make adorable carrot and cheese flowers or smiley rice clouds. Or, if you’re feeling decidedly un-zen-like, throw in some strawberries and crackers. Either way is good!
