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…
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.
Giveaways for 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.
Stick them 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…
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 Games: 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.
