Custom Magnets and Stickers Replace Business Cards

Service and repair businesses need to promote themselves

If you’re over 30, you remember the days of business cards. Most homeowners had a designated “junk drawer” with a stash of business cards near the front. When the water heater went out or the garage door was on the fritz, it was time to rifle through the cards to call for help.

We know you’ve learned the importance of digital marketing, Google business listings, and customer testimonials to guide clients to your business. However, we recommend that all service and repair companies also promote themselves with custom stickers and magnets.

Why use custom stickers and magnets for service/repair business promotion?

It is important (for all business owners) to advertise online with the goal of gaining new customers, but it’s equally or more important to retain the customers you’ve already worked so hard to bring in!

How can you effectively retain your current clients?

Stickers and magnets are an ideal replacement for business cards. To illustrate my point, I’ll share a personal experience.

Two years ago, my garage door had a broken spring. I grabbed my phone, and by a stroke of luck, I was able to find the service person who installed my garage door originally. He arrived quickly, repaired my garage door, and handed me his business card. I fully intended to hire him again; he did great work, offered fair prices, and remembered me well.

I failed to keep his business card or add his contact info to my phone.

The next time my garage door acted up, didn’t get so lucky online and had to hire a different company. While they did the repairs, they charged more, and the interaction didn’t feel as friendly or personal.

If my original garage door installer had placed a custom-made sticker on the garage door interior that included his contact information – he would’ve retained a customer and I could have saved time and money.

Most service and repair business owners are likely to have many customers who won’t be able to remember their name without a reminder. Every time you complete a repair, hand the client your business card, and let them know that you’ve also placed a sticker in a discreet place directly on the equipment you’ve just repaired or serviced.

Custom magnets work just as well if you’re working on anything metal—and can also be placed on a customer’s refrigerator.

The goal is to have your information placed right where they can find it. Don’t let them be like me, using my phone to blindly search “garage door repair near me,” fingers crossed that I’d find the repair company I was looking for.

When your company offers fair prices and excellent service, your customers want to rely on you again and again. Make it easy for them by leaving a visible reminder of just who it was who arrived to help them out last time.

Social Distancing Custom Stickers

we are open, custom sticker, social distancing

Are you the owner or operator of a community-minded business? Does your business have effective means of maintaining social distance between your customers throughout their interactions at your location? If not—we encourage you to explore our professional signage options.

Why Are Social Distancing Graphics Important?

The truth is that many people have trouble discerning how far 6 feet, or 2 meters, really is. This gap in our skill set is exaggerated when we live in crowded, urban environments. The good news is that social distancing markers like floor decals and wall stickers take the guess work out of keeping a healthy distance.

Depending on where your business is located, inspectors may even insist that you follow guidelines by installing proper decals both inside and on the windows of your establishment.

Where Should I Put My Decals and Stickers?

On your business’s front door, install a large sticker that reminds your customers of your social distancing policies. Some popular options are:

  • Thank You for Social Distancing
  • Please Maintain Social Distance
  • Stay 6 Feet Apart to Save Lives

Does your business require temperature checks? A sticker or decal on the front door is a great way to let people know ahead of time.

If you operate a salon, small restaurant, or pet grooming business, you may wish to add a “By Appointment Only” sticker.

Should I Use My Business’s Logo?

At Blue Bee Printing, we think using your logo or mascot to personalize your stickers makes your social distancing signage feel cohesive and customized for your location. While contrasting colors and eye-catching designs are useful for ensuring that your customers pay attention to your stickers, we can help you achieve this look around your logo.

Are Your Stickers and Decals Durable?

Yes! We know hundreds of people will be walking over your stickers, so it’s important that they be made from long-lasting materials. We recommend choosing thick vinyl stickers with a textured overlay to prevent your customers from slipping.

Our social distancing stickers and decals are all printed with UV-resistant ink, ensuring that they won’t fade, even in direct sunlight.

Will Your Custom Stickers or Decals Leave a Mess Behind?

Not at all. When you’re ready to remove your social distancing instruction stickers, you’ll find that they peel off easily, leaving zero residue behind. You can leave them in place for as long as you like, and they will still be a breeze to remove.

Recommended Uses for Social Distancing Stickers and Decals Include:

  • Please Wear a Mask
  • Masks Are Required
  • Masks Are Requested
  • By Appointment Only
  • Store Capacity Signage
  • Elevator Capacity Signage
  • Please Wait Here
  • Pawprint Designs for veterinary offices, pet groomers, and pet supply stores
  • Child-centered designs for preschool, school, daycare, and extracurricular activities

In addition to the suggested designs, we’ve listed today, Blue Bee Printing can create customized stickers and decals featuring any graphics and phrasing you have in mind! Please contact us today, and we’ll get started on your project. If you need your project completed immediately, we even offer one-day rush printing!

Custom Magnets for Whiteboards

For many American families, the kitchen is the heart of the house. It’s where we gather together to begin our days, have family meetings, work on homework, and check emails while we try not to burn dinner.

If your family is like ours, it’s hectic. Between balancing work and school schedules, extra-curricular activities, and social events, it can get overwhelming.

If you would like a clear, easy-to-read system for managing your family’s busy schedule using customized whiteboard magnets, today’s article is for you!

We especially like this style of calendar for families with young children. While a digital calendar can work well for teens, younger children will benefit from being able to see what’s happening by simply glancing up at the calendar you’ve created.

Your Whiteboard is Now Your Command Center

Prepare for each week by creating that week’s calendar on the whiteboard. By limiting this calendar to one week at a time, you’ll be able to prepare mentally as you write it out, and your children won’t be overwhelmed by trying to comprehend a long span of time. Weeks make much more tangible sense to young children than months!

Each Family Member Needs At Least One Custom Magnet

Normally we recommend 3 customized magnets per person, but you may be able to squeak by with 1 per family member. By placing a person’s magnet strategically on the whiteboard, you can draw attention to where they will be during the day.

Create Custom Magnets for Special Events and Activities

Is your little one attending art class, participating in sports, or heading to the dentist? A custom magnet is a perfect way to illustrate the day. For special events like birthdays, holidays, and vacations, magnets can help build anticipation even as they help a child visualize the wait in bite-sized increments. The result may be improved patience and a clearer sense of time passing.

Chores Are Easy to Assign with Custom Magnets

Are you tired of reminding your children of their chores? Design a magnet to represent each chore that’s appropriate for them. From setting the table and unloading the dishwasher to dusting and sweeping, a magnet is a reminder of their responsibility.

By rewarding your children for following their chore magnet independently (we suggest Blue Bee custom printed stickers because kids just love them), you’ll soon find them eager to help without your reminders.

Themed Custom Magnets for Each Month

To make your whiteboard feel a bit more special, you can design a larger magnet for each month. Young children will benefit from associating each month’s name with seasonal themes, and your command center will feel more decorative. In fact, we daresay it’s downright fun to put up a beautiful new month’s magnet!

Young children love to learn as they help you, so take the opportunity to talk about the month’s name and seasonal associations as you prepare the first week of the month.

If you’d like assistance designing custom magnets for your family’s command center whiteboard, please contact us directly. We look forward to helping you create a system that will streamline your busy schedule.

Custom Stickers are Great for Your Brand’s Visibility

a custom Brand logo sticker example

As marketing becomes increasingly digital, custom stickers are an eye-catching and tactile way to connect with your customers via physical marketing. If you’re looking for creative ways to boost your brand’s visibility, we suggest using stickers in your promotions and giveaways in the upcoming months!

Because they are equally ideal for enhancing face-to-face interactions and mail-delivered purchases, it’s hard to go wrong with custom-designed, high-quality, die-cut vinyl stickers. Today, though, we’re sharing even more reasons to use stickers in your promotional efforts.

As every marketing strategist will tell you, sparking an emotional connection in your clients is one of the swiftest, most surefire ways to increase feelings of loyalty to your brand. Stickers are ideal for this purpose since most adults have positive memories of using stickers in their childhood.

Custom Stickers evoke nostalgic memories of simpler times.

Stickers are associated with achievements at school and at home, friendships with peers, and highly personal collections of sparkling sheets and rolls of stickers.

As a result, many people still feel a surge of happiness when they are given a sticker, or even better, a small set of well-designed stickers.

Custom Stickers can make a statement

Don’t limit yourself to stickers that are directly advertising your brand. Instead, consider providing stickers that are informative or aesthetically appealing, then adding a small brand logo near the bottom or around the periphery.

For example, if you’re advertising your vehicular service shop, you could send your clients home with a sticker that details when “It’s time to call your mechanic!”

If you’re a dental office reminding clients to come in for a cleaning, a cute sticker of an animal with visible teeth cheesing for the camera along with a friendly reminder message and your office’s number would be cute and memorable.

If you’re an independent makeup company, stickers that sport your brand’s aesthetic make great freebies to include with purchases. Essentially, nearly any business can use stickers to stand out.

Custom Stickers announce a personal endorsement

People are more likely to accept brand recommendations from those they know.

We as people are much more likely to accept a brand or business recommendation from those we know personally. Consider which you find more convincing: an enthusiastic restaurant recommendation from one friend whose culinary opinion you value or a myriad of reviews online from people you’ve never met?

Stickers, especially those meant to be used on water bottles, laptop and phone cases, windowpanes, guitar cases, and school notebooks, are explicit endorsements for your company. People never affix stickers for companies they hate; therefore, when people display your sticker, they are giving your brand two thumbs up.

Custom Stickers, even high-quality custom stickers like ours, are affordable

Brands often devote considerable resources to advertising. While there’s nothing wrong with that, especially when a company invests in proven methods, it’s also true that interactive advertising can be affordable!

Create Beautiful Custom Stickers

Blue Bee Printing will create beautiful, custom stickers advertising your business, and it will likely be far more affordable than you think. Custom stickers can be designed in multiple sizes and shapes and printed on a variety of materials, making them perfect for your marketing needs.

Custom Sticker Sheets or Sticker Rolls?

The Blue Bee Printing team creates custom stickers for any type and scale of project. Today we are going to offer some helpful tips for choosing the best type of stickers for your needs. Specifically, we’ll be discussing whether you would best be served by sticker sheets or rolls of stickers on your current project.

If you are wavering between these two (which happen to be our top two most popular items), the following details should help you make the right choice.

Sticker Rolls and Labels

The Blue Bee Printing team creates custom stickers for any type and scale of project. Today we are going to offer some helpful tips for choosing the best type of stickers for your needs. Specifically, we’ll be discussing whether you would best be served by sticker sheets or rolls of stickers on your current project.

If you are shopping for product packaging for your business, or labels for your products, roll labels are ideal. Due to their self-supporting and space-saving structure, rolls of labels are easy to store – simply stack them and stash them in a drawer or cabinet.

Do you work in a medical office (whether dental, pediatric, orthopedic, or other) and need custom stickers for young patients? For you, we recommend ordering rolls of stickers. They are easy to store in a medical setting and can be offered to a child while still on the individual backing piece, allowing them to save the sticker for later use at home.

Roll labels are also the easiest type of sticker to peel. While on a small scale this difference may be minor, it adds up quickly when your work involves peeling and adhering hundreds of stickers!

Finally, choosing roll labels means you’ll save on the cost of your stickers if you plan to order more than 500 2 x 2 labels or any square inches totaling over 2,000.

Custom Sticker Sheets

For projects smaller in scale than those we mentioned above, consider choosing sticker sheets. You’re not likely to be peeling and placing dozens of stickers at a time, which means that working from sheets will be more efficient.

Storing sticker sheets is quite easy and space-saving when you are only storing a small stack of sheets; they do well when kept in a filing cabinet, craft drawer, or in protective plastic covers in binders.

If your total sticker needs are fewer than 500 2 x 2 labels, or your total square inches are fewer than 2,000, sticker sheets are the more cost-effective option. If your business is new, starting with a smaller order and then scaling up as your customer base grows is a smart money-saving move that can help you manage your start-up costs.

Still Can’t Decide on Sticker Sheets or Sticker Roll Labels? Have Other Questions?

Please reach out to us directly! We are always happy to speak with you about our full range of products. We are dedicated to ensuring that every one of our customers is matched to the custom sticker or label design that is the best, most cost-effective solution for their project.

At Blue Bee Printing, we never upsell! You’ll never be pressured to order a greater quantity of stickers or pushed to add additional types of products to your order. Instead, we believe that by offering you the best custom stickers on the market at fair prices, our independent business will earn your repeat patronage.

Custom Printed Products To Get Your Business Running

This has been a year like no other. The old ways of doing business are out the window. In order to survive, companies need to adapt and change. How you reopen after the shutdown can make or break your business. Make sure you’re prepared for a safe and successful reopening with all the information your customers need. Custom roll labels, banner stands, and postcards from Blue Bee Printing can alert your customers to new guidelines for safe shopping.

Custom Roll Labels

Many of the new health guidelines require a lot of signage. Custom roll stickers and labels can help with some of the adjustments. Some in-store information may need to be temporarily changed many times over. Roll labels allow you to do that quickly and affordably. You can use printed roll labels to send out special offer postcards to the customers you already have. There are a thousand uses for roll labels and stickers!

Custom Stickers (large)

To keep people from touching surfaces like countertops, put red X stickers with “Do Not Touch” labeled. If seating is limited to certain chairs or tables, use red or green stickers to clearly mark where people are permitted to be. If you’ve put up Plexiglas barriers, customers may be tempted to reach onto the other side. Stickers on the glass can remind them to not reach across or around the glass.

Payment methods can benefit from new signage as well. Register stickers can let your customers know if you prefer cashless transactions to minimize the transference of germs. Or if you’re suffering from the national coin shortage, stickers can let people know you accept rolled change. 

Banner Stands

Before your customers enter your store there is a lot of information they need to know. Are you open for business? Can they enter the store? Do you have adjusted hours? How many customers are permitted inside? Can they order over the phone or online and pickup at the store? Are masks required? Don’t alienate your customers by making them have to read small flyers taped to your door. A large, prominent banner stand is the perfect way to announce your new policies to the customers before they enter your business.

Banner stands also make for great portable signage inside the store. They can tell customers where to queue so they stay at a safe distance from your employees. If certain areas of the business are blocked off, banner stands can block them. Their portability means you can move them if you need to or if the guidelines change.

Postcards

If your business has been surviving on delivery or pickup orders, postcards are a great way to let customers know that you’ve reopened. Include a postcard with all orders with your opening information and any specials you’re offering. Or you can direct mail the postcards to your customers. With so many businesses closing permanently, your customers will be glad to hear that you’re still in business.

Blue Bee’s custom printed products will fit any of your reopening needs. We’re here for you and your business.

Best Stickers Online: Make Your Own Personalized Favorites!

best stickers

Stickers are a versatile, easy, affordable way to advertise, show your pride, be creative, and connect with people. The best stickers you’ll find online are right here at Blue Bee Printing. When it comes to the uses for custom stickers, you are only limited by your imagination. Here are some of the ways you can incorporate custom stickers into your business, hobbies, events, and everyday life.

Make your business stick…

Custom Stickers for Logos and Branding

If you’ve ever bought a new Apple product, you might have noticed a small sticker of an apple logo in the package. No words accompany it – just the apple. Sending their logo out into the world ensures brand loyalty. If they’ve sent you a sticker of their brand, chances are good you’re going to find somewhere to use it. You might give it to your kids to play with, thereby inducting a new generation of future Apple fans. Where Apple has succeeded, so can you. Stickers that contain your company logo make your brand recognizable and memorable.

Stickers for Giveaways and Marketing

People love free stuff. They are more likely to remember you or your business if you’ve given them something of perceived value. Most people throw away business cards, but a sticker is something that stands out. If your business has a brick and mortar location, leave stickers on the counter for customers to take or place them in customers’ bags with their receipt. If you’re attending an event – bring stickers and other marketing materials imprinted with your logo and web address so people know how to find you online.

Are there any local events where you could advertise? PTA associations, church groups, and charitable organizations hold fundraisers and gift auctions frequently. These groups love free donations that they can include in ‘swag bags.’ You can donate your product or service in exchange for advertising and get a tax deduction in the process. Attend local vendor events and have a stack of stickers for passersby to take with them.

Use Custom Stickers in Your Store

Use stickers for wrapping merchandise and sealing delicate items with tissue paper. Use them to brand your handmade products like candles or soap. Put them on your jewelry boxes or clothing. You can even print ‘limited edition’ stickers that get people coming back to your store to get the latest collector’s item.

Show your pride…

Create Custom Stickers For Events

On Election Day, your social media feed will be filled with photos of people proudly displaying their ‘I Voted’ stickers on their shirts and jackets. At a blood drive, your reward for a good deed is a sticker that announces ‘I Gave Blood Today.’ Stickers are often used as badges of honor. The next time you have an event or a party, print stickers for everyone to wear. You’ll be the talk of the town with your ‘I Survived Jen’s Game of Thrones Premiere 2019!’ stickers at your viewing party. At next year’s Super Bowl party, consider giving out stickers that say ‘Tom Brady Won His 7th Super Bowl and All I Got Was This Lousy Sticker.’

Video Gaming Team Stickers

Video games are no longer a solitary activity. Friends from near and far can now interact with each other via a multitude of gaming systems, allowing them to play multiplayer games and team events, turning gaming into a social event. Teams can interact competitively with each other. Having a video gaming team has even become a spectator sport with some leagues now broadcasting on ESPN. Get in on the action by creating a logo for your game group. Set up a YouTube channel where you can broadcast your adventures and, of course, give out stickers to direct new viewers to your channel.

Stickers for everyone:

Kids: Children love stickers. They put them on their shirts and show them off to their friends. Make Happy Birthday stickers so everyone knows it’s your child’s birthday. Give your little one a boost with heart stickers that say ‘My Valentine,’ or ‘I’m the Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow’ stickers for St. Patrick’s Day. Additionally, have children place stickers of their favorite characters on paper and draw creative scenes to accompany them.

Family and Friends: Family members love to receive printed photo stickers as gifts. Use stickers instead of invitations for parties to make an impact. Create memorable photo stickers for wedding Save the Dates, sweet sixteen mementos, religious sacrament events, and more!

Co-workers: A great way to use stickers in your professional life – even if you don’t own your own business – is to improve workplace morale. Give everyone from your department a sticker with a silly tagline for your group like ‘We Put the HR in tHRill!’ and change the word every month to keep things fresh.

It’s easy to create stickers to enhance your life. If you’re feeling stuck, Blue Bee Printing has a variety of shapes and finishes that are guaranteed to allow your creativity to shine.

Teach Children About Measuring with Custom Labels from Blue Bee

illustration of SUCCESS and man with ruler

When children are learning about measuring, nothing compares to hands-on exploration. This is the perfect time to equip your child with new vocabulary terms and mind-blowing comparative concepts. Before you know it, your little learner will be charging around, measuring everything they can get their hands on!

Blue Bee Printing is the ideal place to create custom labels to help cement new words and knowledge for your child. As you create your measurement toolkit, be sure to think about where you can find space to include the following labels for the concepts you are about to introduce.

Of course, most of your measurement items will be items you already have within your home! Small rulers, tape measures, colorful plastic drinking cups, small paper cups, reusable food containers, a large clock, a food scale, a thermometer, measuring cups, and your pet’s food scooper are all ideal for this process. If you can purchase or create clear graduated cylinders, your child will benefit from this opportunity to clearly visualize comparative concepts.

Once these tools are collected in one place, include your child in the process of sorting them by category; that is, items that measure volume, length, weight, and time should each be in their own pile. This process will open your child’s eyes to the many ways we depend on measuring in our daily lives.

Add to these dry beans, dry corn, rice, wooden blocks, water (with or without food coloring), ice cubes, playtime dough, small stones, cotton balls, and feathers, and you’ll have many weeks’ worth of materials at your disposal.

Label Ideas

Children naturally gravitate toward stickers, so introducing colorful labels as part of their measurement lessons can be a wonderful way to incorporate spelling as well as comparing and contrasting into each lesson. Here are some of our favorite labels that greatly enhance this learning module:

  1. Ruler
  2. Clock
  3. 1 Cup, 2 Cups, 3 Cups, etc.
  4. Tape Measure
  5. Scale
  6. Yard Stick/Meter Stick
  7. Calendar
  8. Larger/Smaller
  9. Taller/Shorter
  10. Wide/Narrow
  11. More Than/Less Than
  12. Same/Different
  13. Colder/Hotter
  14. Heavier/Lighter
  15. Brighter/Darker

Having many of these labels on hand will allow your child to compare items and attach a label once they’ve made their prediction about which is which. Additionally, labels to mark your DIY graduated cylinder may be just the thing for furthering your child’s understanding of either metric or imperial measurements.

Fun Ideas for Measurement Learning

If your child has a favorite toy, whether it’s toy trains, fashion dolls, a dress-up box, or stuffed dinosaurs, you can include their toys in the measurement process. Ask, “How many toy trains long is the walk from your bedroom door to the bathroom? How many stuffed dinosaurs is the T.V. from the couch? How many dolls tall is our dining table?”

At snack time, ask, “How many crackers wide is your snack plate? How many dinosaur noodles long is your fork? How many apple slices tall is your cup?” While generations gone by discouraged children from playing with their food, we now know that food items are wonderful tools for teaching children. Furthermore, children who are comfortable playing with food often turn this interactive skillset into a foundation for cooking delicious meals later on.

Please give your child as many opportunities as possible to engage with measuring. We look forward to seeing what you and your child label together! Happy learning from Blue Bee Printing.

Get Creative in the New Year with Blue Bee Printing

In 2020, as the world of entertainment production was swiftly confined to what each creator could produce within their own homes, the world of animation became the hub of an industry. While video games, online cartoon series, anime series, and Western animated cartoons were already enjoying unprecedented success, there’s no denying that lockdown changed the way content was created even further.

If you are an animator, independent game designer, web cartoon creator, anime artist, or comic strip author, it’s vital that you generate and sustain interest in your characters. Blue Bee’s custom stickers are the ideal way to create your own affordable merchandise to promote your fan base’s favorites!

Children, teens, and young adults all enjoy expressing their interests and personality with stickers. Usually, fans of independent art are eager to share their discovery with their peers; a sticker on a binder, phone case, laptop, or Hydroflask can be the perfect way to generate a conversation about an adorable character design.

All it takes is one peek at this popular Etsy category to see how much revenue can be generated with sales of character stickers. While your fanbase may not yet be large enough to support your ordering sweatshirts, tees, or plush toys, our high-quality stickers are ideal for any creator’s budget.

Our custom sticker services will give you the ability to create any kind of packs you can envision: do you want to sell background sheets along with your characters, allowing fans to create their own scenes? We can do that. Would your fans prefer large, glossy, waterproof stickers? We’re here for you.

Ask your fans online: do they want decals for water bottles, laptops, vehicles, or notebooks? Once you have an idea of how your fans would like to use their character stickers, let us know. We’ll recommend the sticker products that will best suit your needs. Our team has many years of experience with crafting outstanding products that hold up in nearly any application setting!

If you discover that your sticker packs are popular with your fanbase, the next item to consider may be our fully customized greeting cards.

When you order with us, we guarantee swift turnaround time on our beautiful greeting cards, which will give you plenty of time to show your fans the entire line on social media.

Additionally, we can assist you with designing small stickers that can be used as envelope seals. Your endearing characters can then be seen all along their journey through the mail system, generating further interest and increasing familiarity as they go.

Getting Back to Writing Letters: How to Use Custom Stickers with your Pen Pal

Writing letters can have many benefits. Putting pen to paper is shown to reduce anxiety, improve mental clarity, and sharpen memory. Anything from daily journal entries, a handwritten thank you note, or a birthday card with a short memory written in the margins can create a moment of mental attention. Why not sharpen this skill with practice by seeking out a pen pal? Dozens of free online services will match you with a pen pal. In addition, custom stickers can enhance your letters in many creative ways.

Envelope seals

Nothing fancies up a letter like custom envelope seals. You can use your last initial in a script font, a custom logo, or even a photo of yourself. Your recipient will love the extra touch of breaking the seal as they open your latest correspondence.

Address labels

If you’re going to be mailing to the same pen pal for an extended time, order custom labels printed with their address. Use a modern decorative font for the name and a clean readable font for the address. Your pen pal will be flattered that you decorated their address and you won’t have to look it up every time you write to them. You can also print custom return address labels that can be used for any letter – not just for your pen pals.

Story starters

Sometimes the hardest part of writing a letter is knowing what to say. Use custom stickers as story starters to get the conversation going. Print little questions on them and use them as a jumpstart. ‘What was the most fun you ever had?’ ‘Where did you meet your first love?’ ‘What was the worst job you ever had?’ ‘Where would you live if you could live anywhere?’

Closing labels

How do you end your pen pal letters? Do you write ‘Sincerely?’ ‘Your friend?’ A common pen pal closing is ‘Write back soon.’ Whatever closing you settle on, you can make it special with a custom sticker and then sign your name underneath. You can send a sheet of stickers to your pen pal in your letter so they can share the same closing in their return letter.

Time markers

How often do you plan to write your pen pal? Once a month? Once a week? Help keep on task with custom stickers that signify that this is your letter for that time period. If you’re writing your January letter, start your letter with a January sticker. It will help keep you from missing your letters and your pen pal will be able to keep them organized easily.

Holiday stickers

Decorate your letters with stickers appropriate for the holidays. If it’s close to Valentine’s Day, some hearts and cupids will warm their holiday spirit. If it’s Fourth of July, fireworks and flags are festive additions. This is especially appreciated if you’re writing to a pen pal from another country who isn’t as familiar with American culture. You can describe how you celebrate the holiday and use stickers to illustrate it.
