So often we hear about the terrible lost properly problems experienced in Residential and Care Homes. Clothes go missing and residents are frequently found wearing the wrong clothes simply because theirs weren't labelled. It's such an easy thing to prevent - just label the clothes!
The most popular labels for Care Homes are the Easyfix Clip ons. This is because they withstand very hot washes that are often used in Care Homes, whereas iron on labels don't. We supply hundreds of Homes with our Easyfix Clip on Labels (also known as Tagg ons or Taggits).
The Clip ons are very easy to apply and can be done almost anywhere - including in a resident's room while chatting, over a cup of tea!
The Clip used on the label is very small so doesn't irritate and can even be used on underwear without causing any problems.
Some people still prefer to use Sew ons and the labels can be sewn on instead of clipped.
These are the same as the labels used with the Clips as they can also be sewn on. Please note that the names are printed and not embroidered.
The other big favourite in Homes is the StampaName. This is even quicker to use as all you do is Stamp it onto the material. It contains textile ink that doesn't wash off and the ink pad is contained within the Stamp so no messy fingers. The ink is black so won't show up on dark clothing but we also supply StampaName packs which include 30 Clip on Labels as well, for use on dark clothes.
Although popular these labels don't always withstand high washing temperatures used in homes. Safer alternatives are the Clip-ons, Sew-ons or the Stampaname!
