Please note that some of our publishers and distributors are experiencing delays with delivery and this may affect our normal supply times. We will continue to dispatch your books as soon as they are available. If you’d like further information please email us at email@example.com. Many thanks for your patience and understanding.
MLS/Capita Reading Cloud and Softlink customers can enter a start number in their basket. We will then print those barcodes and fit them to the centre bottom of the first page (outside back cover for board books). Users of other systems can supply their own barcodes for us to apply.
We can supply and fit date labels, they are 10cm wide by 12.5cm long. The date label is placed centrally on the first page and glued along the top. If placing the label in this way would obscure unique information, such as maps, texts or illustrations, then the next available page will be used. For board books a smaller blank label is applied to the outside back cover.
Dewey colour coding
We can add a colour sticker denoting Dewey range. This is placed at the bottom of the spine.
Fiction spine labels
A landscape spine label can be printed with the first three letters of the author's surname. This is placed 1cm up from the base of the spine. If the spine is too narrow to read the label properly it is rotated to run along the spine. The text on the label can be edited in your basket.
Non-fiction spine labels
We can apply spine labels with Dewey numbers (up to three decimal places). These can be edited in your basket.
Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ labels
AR label (large)
A large label showing reading level, points value and quiz number. This is fitted centrally on the inside front cover.
AR label (small)
A small spine label showing reading level and points. It is fitted either 1cm up from the base of the spine, or immediately above any other label.
AR reading level colour band
A colour band denoting reading level, fitted to the base of the spine.
AR age group colour band
A colour band denoting age group, fitted to the top of the spine.
Reading scheme labels
Book banding colour bands
We can label your books with colour stickers relating to the Book Banding reading scheme. These are placed at the top of the spine. Please note that labels can only be applied to items in your order that have been levelled.
Reading Recovery colour bands
We can label your books with colour stickers relating to the Reading Recovery intervention scheme. These are placed at the top of the spine. Please note that labels can only be applied to items in your order that have been levelled.
Reading Recovery level indicators
We can apply labels showing the level for books in the Reading Recovery intervention scheme. These are placed at the top of the spine (directly below the colour band if also used). Please note that labels can only be applied to items in your order that have been levelled.
Phonics phase labels
A label indicating the book's phonics phase will be applied to the top right corner of the front cover. If a book sits across more than one phase, we will use the label for the highest relevant phase.
CatchUp level indicators
We can apply labels for books that are part of the CatchUp intervention scheme. These are placed at the top of the spine.
Security labels and RFIDs
A blank, un-programmed RFID can be fitted on the inside back cover of your books. It is placed 1cm in from the spine and in a variable position depending on text layout.
RFID labels supplied are compliant with ISO 18000-3 and ISO 15693 air interface protocols and the SLi-X chips are capable of storing data in the industry standard ISO 28560 format, so will therefore be compatible with all modern, standards-compliant RFID systems.
Please contact us for a free sample of an RFID tag before ordering, as we are unable to accept returns for books that have been tagged if they are not compatible with your system.
A large sticker with your establishment details can be provided. This will be placed on the inside front cover, centrally.
