This is the story of how one little idea sparked a worldwide business! Back in 1995, Carrie was instructed by her son's childcare to label his items.
It suddenly dawned on Carrie that Charlie was too little to read his own name (bless). So, why not get creative and add a familiar icon to the label? That way he would be able to recognise his belongings even though he was essentially illiterate (relax, he was 3 years old).
Sure, in 2018 this request seems like a no-brainer. But back in 1995 it was simply unheard of.
“You want a what on the where because of why?” asked her perplexed printer (not an exact quote).
Speaking verrrrry slowly, Carrie repeated herself: “I’d like a picture of an aeroplane on Charlie’s name labels, because his daddy is a pilot and he loves planes.”
The printer deemed this pure madness, and as Carrie turned on her heel and fled the printing store a lightbulb appeared over her head (yes, literally. Have you met Carrie? She’s incredible).
By the time she pulled into the driveway, the lightbulb was so bright she practically needed sunglasses. As she unbuckled the seatbelts, lifted her child out of the car, reached under the seat for a forgotten teddy bear and shepherded her son inside while juggling three bags of groceries the idea for Stuck On You had…well… stuck.
Now, 23 years later, we don’t just offer you one or two little icons to sit alongside your child’s name. We offer you more than 50 icons, each one lovingly designed by our in-house graphic designers. And yes… Charlie’s aeroplane is still there.
