Time and time again we hear upsetting stories about lost property 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 in Care Homes are the Easyfix Clip ons. This is because they withstand the very hot washes that are often used in Care Homes. We supply hundreds of Homes with our Easyfix Clip on Labels (also known as Tagg ons or Taggits).
The Easyfix Clip ons are very easy to apply and can be done almost anywhere - even in a resident's room while chatting over a cup of tea!
Our Easyfix Clips are very small (unlike many of the big chunky stud like clips that are uncomfortable on the skin) and therefore they don't irritate the skin. They can even be used on underwear without causing any problems.
Please note that the names on the sew on labels are printed and not embroidered. They are clear and bold and can be printed with a room number as well as a name if required - and even a little picture. Please call us if you'd like a picture.
Another big favourite in Care Homes is the StampaName. 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 34 Clip on Labels as well, for use on dark clothes.
Stampaname Multi - for Care Homes who take it upon themselves to label residents' clothing.
Similar to the Stampaname, this is perfect for Care Homes who label the residents' clothes themselves, as this Stamp comes with up to 4 names per stamp. So a very cost effective way of labelling clothing for Care Homes.
Also popular in Care Homes are our new Iron on labels as they now withstand very high washing temperatures! Applied correctly they will become part of the garment and never come off!
For those homes using our name tapes on a regular basis, we can set up an invoice system.
Regular users can also set up their own online ordering system which can be managed by the home regarding ordering, payment and invoicing. Please call 01242 519191 for details. For large orders we may be able to offer discount.
