Custom stickers can serve a wide range of purposes, from viral marketing to personal branding and just good fun. What if you order custom stickers that just aren’t up to par, though?
Fortunately, there are some simple ways to ensure that doesn’t happen—just follow these tips and you’ll have the highest quality stickers you can imagine.
Get Picky with The Products
One of the biggest things that makes a sticker feel truly high quality is the quality of the material it’s printed on. This means that you should do your due diligence when selecting a printer, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
At the same time, consider what you want your stickers to be used for. Are you hoping that people slap them on the backs of their laptops?
Stick them to their rear windshields? Display them on their water bottles? The type of material your sticker is printed on must necessarily be influenced by your intentions for the sticker.
For example, if you have hopes of your sticker being attached to items that see a lot of wear, vinyl might be the best option for you. If you’re trying to make a lasting impression, metallic foil might be the way to go.
If you simply want to create an eye-catching design but you aren’t that worried about where the sticker ends up, simply make sure the printer you choose uses high-quality paper stock.
Stick to The Stickiest Option
Another critical feature of any high-quality sticker is a strong adhesive. If your sticker doesn’t stick, then the point is basically defeated. Make sure you’re working with a company that has done the legwork in finding a quality adhesive for their stickers.
Don’t Downplay Design
Finally, in order to create a high-quality sticker, you need a stand out design. If you’re not much of a designer yourself, try to find a company that has a creative staff on hand to assist you.
Conversely, if you have a very clear creative vision, make sure to find a printer that can make it happen.
This means that you’ll need to work with someone that doesn’t skimp on printing quality. You might have created the most exceptional sticker design in history, but if the printing is low quality, it won’t look like much.
Any printer worth their salt knows that it’s not much more expensive to create high-quality stickers than low-quality ones, so there’s really no excuse for a company that doesn’t deliver an exceptional product.
To recap, before you order a large purchase of any stickers, make sure that the products they are printed on, fit your needs and meet your standards, ask about the quality of the adhesive, and get nit-picky with the design and print quality.
Once all of that is done, you can bet that you’ll find yourself with a higher quality sticker than you imagined possible.
