BEFORE YOU ORDER CUSTOM STICKERS
It’s mobile friendly and very easy to use but we’ve noticed a few scenarios where people sometimes get stuck along the way so we got inspired to write this article.
Here are 5 things to consider before you order custom stickers online.
1\ KNOW WHAT TYPE OF CUSTOM STICKERS YOU NEED
Before you place your sticker order, give some thought to what the intended purpose is for your custom stickers.
3 questions to ask yourself:
A: “What will my custom stickers be used for?”
B: “How many custom stickers do I need?”
There isn’t always a significant difference in the cost of custom stickers between smaller and larger quantities, especially in terms of cost per sticker. The more you buy, the cheaper it is per sticker.
Since vinyl stickers have a very long shelf life (around 5 years when stuck outdoors, longer indoors and even longer when stored / unused), you can order more than you think you might need and know they likely won’t go to waste.
C: “How big should my custom stickers be?”
This ties in directly with the question about sticker purpose.
If your custom stickers are meant as promotional giveaways for people to stick to things they own like laptops and water bottles then you don’t want to go too big.
If your custom sticker order are for bumper stickers or something else meant to be seen at a distance than you’ll want to go with something a bit larger.
Knowing the answers to these questions before you start your online order will make the task nice and easy.
2\ WHEN TO ORDER YOUR CUSTOM STICKERS?
Depending on where you are ordering from, we may be able to get your stickers to you within a few days.
However even with a fast and friendly sticker printing service provider, it’s always good to order earlier than you think you need to in case there are any delays or snafu’s.
Delivery company hiccups, holidays you may have forgotten about, extra time needed for custom sticker design.
You don’t want to wait until the last minute to order your custom stickers so whenever possible, be proactive and order soon!
3\ GET YOUR CUSTOM STICKER FILE READY
Do you have a graphic ready to go?
This is especially important if you’re looking at printing custom logo stickers for your business.
The most popular file types are all accepted in our system (.jpg, .pdf, .png) so you have plenty of options, but it’s still smart to have the file reviewed and ready to upload before you start ordering custom stickers.
Don’t have a design file ready? We do that too! Let us help design your custom sticker with any look and message you’d like.
4\ WOULD YOUR STICKER BENEFIT FROM A SPECIAL EFFECT?

Using one of these effects can do wonders to enhance the look and effectiveness of your custom stickers, they’re not necessary in a lot of cases so for more people the tried and true classic vinyl die cut stickers is usually the way to go.
5\ HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD READY
Ya ya, this may seem obvious but we’re all prone to rookie mistakes now and then.
There’s little more annoying than preparing an online order for something only to get to the checkout screen and realize you don’t have your credit card nearby.
Do us both a favor and make sure you’re ready to pay before you start ordering your custom stickers. :)
That’s it! There’s not a whole lot to it. The process is simple and pain free, especially if you give it a little thought and follow the above suggestions before ordering.
