Stikets was born in 2010 as the result of an idea by a mother, Stephanie Marko, who wanted to solve an everyday problem for families as the fact that things get lost. Her aim was to offer a practical, effective and economical solution to mark clothes, books, shoes, school supplies, backpacks and any other object to make life easier for families.
Since then, Stikets has taken the aim of helping families to its broadest sense, as a transversal idea. Thus, in addition to constantly innovating to ensure the highest quality of all products, we work to make Stikets a quality company, committed to conciliation and equality at all levels.
At Stikets we believe that values are not incompatible with productivity. We currently have more than 200,000 clients from 15 countries across Europe, the United States and Latin America.
Stikets' main goal is to make everyday life easier for families. That is why we keep innovating and creating new quality products, such as name stickers for clothes or hanging loops, designed to make your everyday easier.
Likewise, as a company, we want to actively collaborate with society and encourage a change in mentality. In addition to promoting charitable actions, such as donations to the Food Bank, we are committed to equality and to reconciling family and work.
We all want the best for our families. Therefore, both our labels to mark childrens' items and the rest of our personalised products are made with all the necessary guarantees to offer the best results and maximum durability. Stikets iron-on labels, ID bracelets and personalised wall decals for kids have passed the definitive test: our children. As "guinea pigs" they guarantee the maximum quality of the products. Our clothing labels resist the washer and dryer. Our custom name stickers resist the dishwasher and the microwave. This commitment to quality is also transversal and we work to reach all company levels, such as customer service and delivery.
At Stikets we are constantly innovating to provide new products with the best features to cater to families' needs. Likewise, our website is constantly changing and improving to guarantee the best usability. At Stikets we want the process to be easy, fast and fun: from the personalisation of the product to the reception of the order or the after-sales service.
Stikets CEO, Stephanie Marko, wanted to create a company with the same high-quality standards as its products. She wanted to prove it was possible to create a company that could grow even in an economic crisis without compromising on its strong conciliation values. She also wished for a company where women could work without giving up on their role as mothers and where, in addition, they could achieve professional fulfilment.
This translates into an intensive workday from 9a.m. to 5p.m. that matches the school schedule, with flexible entrances and exits. Furthermore, at Stikets, we are committed to teleworking and evaluating work according to objectives and not by the amount of time invested in it. The company also has an area with toys for the children of its employees.
As a "mumpreneur", Stephanie Marko is very aware that we still have a long way to go to achieve equality between men and women in our society and in the business world. This contrasts with women's aptitudes, especially mothers. As many studies already show, they have a high capacity for planning and organizing daily work and this translates into greater work performance. At Stikets we have a mostly female staff with children under 6 years of age.
We are very happy to be able to help families and very proud of the several awards and family-friendly recognitions that we have obtained.
The best way to thank all the support received is to continue innovating and working for a better society and a better world. That is where we are at, and that is what we shall continue doing. Thanks for visiting Stikets.
