Print Custom Holiday Stickers Online with Blue Bee!

It’s coming up on the most wonderful time of the year and we could all use a little holiday cheer! Coming to the end of one of the most stressful years in modern history, let Blue Bee take the anxiety out of the holiday season with custom stickers.

Dress Up Holiday Cards

Do you go all out for your holiday cards every year? You hire a photographer, buy props and matching outfits, spend days choosing the right layout and designing the card, then stick it in a plain envelope and call it a day? Make your cards the talk of the town!

Maybe you bought your holiday cards with the intention of hand-writing a personal note, but the season has gotten busy and you’re running out of time. Custom print a signature sticker with a happy new year message from you and the family.

If you use a photo for your card, use one of your outtakes on your return address label. Your friends will appreciate the teaser and the chance to see your candid side.

Create matching envelope seal stickers so you don’t have to spend hours licking and sealing. Bonus for no paper cuts!

Simplify Your Gift Wrapping

Why stick with plain “To/From” stickers from a big box store when you can order custom stickers with your name preprinted on them? It’ll save you tons of time when you’re wrapping to only have to print the recipient’s name. You can even order a separate set for Santa gifts so your kids will never know!

Don’t spend a fortune on fancy holiday gift bags. You can use plain bags and add your own holiday stickers to decorate them. Your friends will think you’re creative and crafty! It’s easy (and fun) to dress up plain wrapping paper with holiday stickers instead of buying special paper you then would have to store.

Be the Star of the Cookie Exchange

If you’re spending days baking dozens of cookies to share, you don’t have to spend forever on presentation as well. Find some clear containers since your cookies are their own display, and label the top with their name and the recipe.

Other food gifts are always welcomed by teachers, instructors, and coaches. Wrap them in clear cellophane and finish with a Happy Holidays sticker. Dress up mason jars with labels for lids and a holiday ribbon and fill with candy. They’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness.

If you like to give wine as gifts or bring to parties, you can customize the bottle with holiday stickers to make them more personal.

Stickers Make It Fun for Kids

Kids love playing with activity books and stickers. Spread some holiday cheer with a basket full of coloring books, crayons, holiday stickers, candies, and treats. Start a trend in your neighborhood by anonymously dropping off a pail of goodies with a sticker that says they’ve been Elf-ed.

While the holidays may look a little different this year, you can preserve your traditions and invent new ones with custom stickers by Blue Bee.

Every VSCO Girl Needs Custom Stickers by Blue Bee

Why does a VSCO Girl need custom stickers?

While the majority of today’s most popular fads revolve around a particular app, meme, clothing style or catch phrase that spreads like wildfire, there is a new conglomerate of (mostly) teenage girls who are taking Instagram by storm. You probably haven’t missed the fact that they definitely have a shared clothing style along with many other traits that have made them into a cultural phenomenon of 2019. This new species, my friend, is called the VSCO girl. Just like most crazes of the current era, VSCO girls are derived straight from social media.

Maybe you’ve wholly embraced the VSCO girl persona or perhaps you’re someone who has heard the term, but doesn’t have a single clue about current pop culture trends. Here’s the good news: if you’re the first type, you’re about to get a great tip that will allow you to fully immerse yourself into the VSCO world. If you fit in the latter category, you’ll soon become an expert on the inner workings of this latest fad.

It all started with the VSCO app. The purpose of this trendy app is to upgrade a photo by adding a filter and then sharing the picture on social media feeds. You’re probably thinking that this app is essentially the same thing as Instagram, and you’re pretty much correct. One of the main differences, however, is that VSCO feels more like a photo album; people cannot like photos, comment on them, or message others through the app. VSCO gives off a different vibe than Instagram. And the VSCO “vibe” has taken off with immense popularity.

What is the VSCO vibe?

The VSCO aesthetic can be described as preppy but laid-back, trendy and “basic.” Think Birkenstocks, or beachy. Girls will dress in a “VSCO girl” outfit and then post it to Instagram using the hashtag, #VSCOgirl. Furthermore, a VSCO girl is characterized by specific brands and products including white vans, Hydroflask water bottles, oversized t-shirts, Birkenstocks, choker necklaces, scrunchie hair ties, metal straws, Puka shell necklaces, and more. VSCO girls are known to be (or at least they like to appear) environmentally conscious.

Since VSCO girls seem to have a Hydroflask attached at the hip, custom stickers with the latest saying or a trendy logo would be the icing on the cake when it comes to meeting the VSCO girl dress code. At Blue Bee Printing, we offer only the best quality when it comes to printing customized stickers and magnets. The presence of customized stickers is on the rise and VSCO girls, we are calling your name.

With a customized sticker, you can create a unique sticker that matches your personality. Now, if you’re trying to fit the VSCO girl persona, you might want a sticker with a certain saying or image. Here are a few suggestions: an ocean wave, a Birkenstock, #savetheturtles, the setting sun, your favorite animal, clothing brand, or #VSCOgirl as a die cut sticker.

You name it, we can make it. All you have to do is hop on our website and check out the options. Once you have an idea for the sticker you would like to create, you can make your own personal design. Your sticker might have the same picture as your partner-in-crime, but the beauty of a customized sticker is that you could make it a different shape or color! We encourage creativity and trend-setting here at Blue Bee, which is why we make it possible to create such a wide variety of stickers. Soon, your friends will want their own customized stickers and you’ll be the first to tell them about the latest up-and-coming trend.

Use Blue Bee Custom Stickers to Teach Fine Motor Skills – and So Much More

custom stickers

“The important thing is that we stick together!” Wise words indeed, from that heroic Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear. And whether your little one loves Toy Story, or princesses, or soccer, or hippos, your wisest toddler development move could be sticking with some custom stickers featuring that childhood passion to help teach fine motor skills, ABCs, focus, logic, and countless other developmental competencies.

From the delightful juxtaposition of sticky and smooth sensations on the same object, to the endless possibilities for appealing images, stickers are ideal for engaging children. They’ll be having so much fun admiring the pictures and figuring out how to peel the stickers off the paper, they won’t even notice that they’re learning skills that will be fundamental in pretty much everything else they ever do.

Handling stickers lets children practice and strengthen their ability to press their pointer finger and thumb together in a pincer grasp that’s the basis of everything from stacking blocks and stringing beads, to using a crayon or pencil, to zippering a jacket and cutting with scissors, to getting dressed and brushing teeth, to manipulating that plastic spork. These movements all require dexterity in the small muscles in the hands and wrists – fine motor skills that can be honed with the simple custom sticker.

So don’t be a stick-in-the-mud – gather up your favorite little ones and some custom stickers, and let the good times roll with the rollicking fun in these five fabulous activities. 

They’re So Appealing: Small stickers,dot stickers, shaped stickers – variety is the spice of life, and a variety of custom sticker shapes will challenge children to improve their fine motor skills. Simply peeling the pictures off the backing is enough to entertain the youngest toddlers, but it requires complex motions that are good practice for tiny fingers. The first few times, you may want to fold the paper backing at the edge of the sticker to make it easier to remove.

It’s Poetry in Motion: Grab a stack of blank paper, and encourage children to place their choice of custom stickers wherever they want on the paper. Show them how to make sure the sticky side is down, and how to smooth the edges down so the stickers will stay in place. And don’t worry if the result ends up looking like a tall stack of pancakes – beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and your toddler has just created something beautiful for sure. As the children become more advanced, you can draw a line or even the child’s name on the paper, and help them use stickers to “trace” what you’ve written. This is also great preparation for teaching the alphabet, colors, writing, and other more advanced concepts.

Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes: Put stickers on the child’s feet, elbows, nose, and other body parts, naming each one as you go, then help them name each part as well. Get faster, get sillier, and get a head start on Anatomy 101 with some basic custom stickers.

Think Outside the Table: You’ll want to be sure your toddler only puts stickers where you want them – but that doesn’t just have to be on the paper on the dining room table. Put some on masking tape to see if they’ll stay. Let your little explorer practice different wrist positions by placing the stickers vertically on a piece of paper taped to a wall.

Two (or More) Can Play These Games: Remember “Concentration”? With older children, you can make your own version at home with two sets of identical round stickers that you put in caps from the same plastic bottles or milk caps. Put the caps down so the stickers are hidden, and voila – it’s a match game featuring your child’s very own custom stickers. Create an “I Spy!” game by letting your child scatter stickers throughout a notebook, then playing detective as you page through the book together. Or you can improve the age-old standby tic-tac-toe by drawing the simple grids on paper, and using custom stickers instead of those boring Xs and Os.

When you’re ready to get sticky with it, check out Blue Bee’s many options for custom stickers. Just one suggestion – because you never really know what your imaginative child is going to come up with next, make sure your stickers are low-tac, available in white, clear, or clear with white ink – the removable adhesive does not leave behind any residue. Die-cut, oval, rectangle, round, rounded corner, square, on a sheet or on a roll, you’re bound to find just the right custom stickers to improve inspire your little one’s fine motor skills and inspire endless creativity.

Using Custom Stickers to Achieve Your Decluttering Dreams

Minimalism is a trend that’s here to stay. People are finding happiness in letting go of unnecessary possessions. Having vast collections of bric-a-brac is no longer desirable. People want open living with clean, modern spaces. Marie Kondo has tapped into the trend with her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and konmaring your life has become part of our vocabulary. It’s easy to get started decluttering your own home and custom labels can make you an organizing machine!

Sorting Labels: When you have momentum for going through your things, you can derail it pretty quickly. Don’t get bogged down finding new homes for items as you go. Instead use boxes, bins, or bags for categories of items and labels to make it easy. Some categories you may need are keep, trash, recycle, shred, return, sell, donate, and relocate. Being able to quickly make decisions about each item and addressing all like items at once will make the process easier.

Placement labels: Key to keeping any system of organization working is having a place for everything. Custom labels make it easy to know where items will ‘live’ in your home. It also helps to stop you from buying unnecessary things if you know you don’t have room for them. Here are a few areas where you can work labels to your advantage:

  • Closet labels: Label shelves and bins so you don’t have to search for seasonal or special occasion items. Keep kids’ closets organized with hanger dividers for sizes and seasons.
  • Art supply labels: Keep like items with like and label your drawers for paints, drawing supplies, glue, scissors, cloth, and miscellaneous craft items like popsicle sticks, googly eyes, and pompoms. 
  • Office supply labels: It’s unfortunately very easy to overbuy office supplies since these are items that need restocking. But how many binder clips, paper clips, and staples do you really need? After you clear out your drawers to a manageable amount you can use custom labels to separate items.
  • Tools: Why go rifling through a tool chest every time you need a screwdriver? Use custom labels to clearly mark where everything belongs and avoid the urge to throw everything together.

Label photos: If your important family photos are living on your phone you risk losing them or just never looking at them. You can easily organize your photos and create an album you can pass on to future generations. Print out your favorites and write on the back all the important information. Think of it like retro tagging. Create a label with headings and blank areas that you can fill in like names of people, date, and location. The label prevents indentations on the photo from pen and helps you stay organized.

Paperwork: Inundated with endless paperwork, bills, and tax records? Get it off your desk and file everything away. Use custom labels for each year and within the year, each category of bills: medical, credit cards, mortgage, etc. Most accountants agree that you should keep seven years of records so categorizing your papers by year will make it easier to shred the files at year eight. You can elect to receive paperless statements to eliminate some bills. Just make sure you back up your files because the bank often keeps only eighteen months to three years accessible. Don’t store those files on a hard drive only. Keep them backed up to cloud, Google drive, or on a flash drive.

Kids Toys: This is one of the most difficult areas to organize because children are constantly in motion. You may spend hours sorting toys, finding missing puzzle pieces, and matching doll outfits only to have a 3 year old immediately misplace everything. After you’ve gone through and eliminated all broken, outgrown, or incomplete toys, make it easy for your children to maintain an organized space. Custom labels are a great way to help little ones understand where everything belongs. Use large colorful labels with a picture and a word. A puzzle piece and a large word ‘Puzzles’ will help pre-readers know where things belong.

Custom labels are a great way to get started organizing your home. You can design colorful labels with modern fonts on square stickers that make you smile when you put your things away. The team at Blue Bee Printing can walk you through your label order and make sure you have the right sizes for what you need. Once you see how easy it is, you’ll be inspired to organize and simplify every area of your home.

How to Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution with Custom Stickers

custom stickers

 

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it can be hard to keep those New Year’s resolutions from fading from memory. How do you keep enthusiasm up when the days drag on and it’s so easy to slip back into your old routine? Custom stickers by Blue Bee Printing may be the answer you’re looking for to give you the edge to succeed.

To keep your resolution from adding to the overwhelming majority of failed ones, you’ll need to change your behavior. Research shows that permanent behavior modification is a process that takes at least 66 days. That means you’ll be well into March before your resolution stops being a force of will and becomes a habit. You can use custom stickers to influence yourself in these five ways.

  • Track your progress: Whether you use a wall calendar, a notebook, or a planner, have a tangible reminder of your progress. On days when you were successful, give yourself a positive sticker. Use a smiley face, a photo of a loved one, or something that makes you happy. Leave the unsuccessful days blank. When you start seeing fewer and fewer blank days you’ll know you’re on the right track.
  • Accountability: You can give all the excuses you want to, but when the results are in black and white, there’s no glossing over it. If you’re using stickers to keep track of your resolution, you’ll know why you’re successful or not.

 

  • Visual reminder: Having the visual aid of a calendar makes it harder to ignore or forget your goal. You can always choose not to open the app on your phone that you’re using to keep track of yourself, but it’s harder to close your eyes to a calendar on the wall or your desk.

 

  • Set mini-goals: Large goals and resolutions can be intimidating. Set smaller goals so you can feel accomplished. Mark your calendar with a new sticker when you achieve your mini-goal.

 

  • Reward: Set milestone rewards for yourself to keep motivated. But through the process, the stickers are the daily reward. There’s a reason teachers use them on tests. Stickers make you feel as if you’ve achieved something. Don’t hold out on yourself by waiting to the end for a reward. Constantly congratulate yourself for working towards your goal.

 

Here are some of the most common new year goals and how to stick to them using custom stickers:

 

Lose weight: Create photo stickers of yourself to track your progress. Start with a before photo and at each mini-goal you achieve take a new photo. You’ll stay motivated when you see how much you’ve improved.

 

Exercise more: Create fun stickers that show what activity you did. On running days, use a photo of Forrest Gump. On swimming days, use Michael Phelps. If weightlifting is your goal, use a photo of the body part you worked. This will help you keep track of your leg days and your arm days.

 

Save more money: In many cases, saving more money is a set it and forget it plan. You can decide how much money you want to save per month and have it automatically withdrawn and transferred to a savings account. However, not over-spending is where the real challenge lies. Saying no to going out to lunch and bringing a brown bag every day isn’t immediately rewarding. Use your reward stickers to highlight small victories like a no-spend day, or cancelling a paid subscription service. Set a weekly budget and sticker the weeks where you were able to stick to it.

 

Learn a new skill or develop a new hobby: Hobbies are difficult to track because they’re more open-ended. Ideally there’s no end goal, you just keep improving your skill. If you’re taking formal lessons for your new hobby, sticker the lesson days with one sticker and the days you practice at home with a different sticker. You’ll be able to see when your practice days are dropping off so you’ll be prepared for the lesson days.

 

Quit smoking: Sticker every day that you are cigarette-free and reserve milestone stickers for the first week, ten days, two weeks, three weeks, and then monthly. You can also create stickers where you can write in milestones like ‘First time going to a bar and not leaving for a cigarette,’ or ‘Refused a cigarette when offered one.’ It’s important to keep the benefits of not smoking in mind as well, so use stickers to track improvements like ‘Saved $30 this week by not smoking,’ or ‘Was able to climb three flights of stairs without coughing.’

 

Read more: Set a daily goal of how many minutes you want to spend reading and give yourself a sticker for each day that you meet it. Challenge yourself to finish a certain number of books for the year and sticker the days when you finished one. Write your thoughts on the book in your planner so you can always have a visual reminder of it.

 

If you’ve made resolutions before without success, make this the year that you change your behavior. You can stick to it with custom stickers.

A good brand logo should be recognizable by its color, name, font and appearance. You want your logo to “stick” in people’s minds. Hopefully, the logo of your company brand will draw the eyes of consumers, and customized stickers can help you share your logo and its message with the world.


One of the many benefits of a customized sticker is that it can be stuck almost anywhere. A good-looking logo may have consumers placing the sticker on a laptop or other piece of property where it can be carried beyond the four walls of an office which means it will be seen by others. Customized stickers are also great when you want to share a specific message to an audience (ex. grand opening date). You can also use custom stickers or magnets to promote a certain aspect of your business.

 

Blue Bee Printing wants to meet our customers’ needs, so we offer several different types of custom stickers. We offer die cut stickers, which are designed based on the specific shape for which the customer has in mind. Next, we have round, oval, square, rounded corner, and rectangle stickers. Additionally, we offer sticker sheets, bumper stickers, circle roll labels (rolls of stickers), and decal transfer stickers.

After you have decided on your stickers’ shape, you will begin the design process for your customized stickers. This involves selecting paper type and the adhesive you desire. With the exception of circle roll labels and decal transfer stickers, we offer nine paper options with different adhesives. The next decision to make is the type of coating you want on your stickers. The type of coating you select will be dependent on where the stickers will be used and what kind of look you are going for.

Once you have decided on the basics, the next (and most fun!) step to take will be personalizing your stickers. When placing your order, you will select how many stickers you need, as well as the size of your stickers. The final steps are deciding on the proofing and setting up the delivery. Soon, your custom printed sticker order will arrive in the mail!

Virtually any design that you have in mind for a sticker can be brought to life by Blue Bee Printing. We offer many types of designs, shapes, materials, styles, and finishes, all to fit the needs and desires of our highly valued customers.

You’re interested in the die-cut method for your stickers because you want them to look professional, last a long time, and blend seamlessly with the surrounding surface when they’re placed. Because they are the answer to each of these, our die-cut stickers with customized edges are by far our most popular custom sticker option. After all, why would one go to the trouble of designing a customized sticker only to have generic edges ruining the outlines of the image? Or worse, having to skew or stretch a beautiful image to fit the apparently random requirements of a printing company? With Blue Bee, you have plentiful options when it comes to creating custom stickers.

Our beautiful, customized die-cut stickers beg to be shared, collected, and displayed proudly. Whether they end up being placed on 1” office binders, brown clipboards and laptops or hard guitar cases and skate boards, our stickers will put your logo or character in a spot where many people can enjoy it. All age groups show that they appreciate quality stickers with a unique flair; you’ll supply the flair, and we’ll give you stickers with quality that you can be proud to share.

First, upload your artwork directly to our website through the form you’ll find here, select the size you’d like your stickers to be, choose your finish and materials, then select an option to let us know how you’d like to see your proofs. We can send them electronically, mail them to you, or promptly run your design without showing you a proof if you’re feeling especially confident and on a tight deadline. It’s that simple. Depending on how quickly you want to receive your stickers, we can complete your project in 2 – 5 days. Of course, if you want us to rush, we can! Simply choose the rush option when you reach the shipping portion of the online design form.

Customized Stickers and Labels for the Home and Office

customized stickers and labels

Pinterest pages are full of people using their home printers and label-makers to create customized stickers and labels for their homes and offices. However, creating your own labels requires equipment (printers or label-makers), ink for printing, and paper supplies. The costs add up, and if you don’t plan to print labels for hundreds of things around the home or office, the investment in personal label-making supplies might be misplaced.

Instead, consider ordering custom-made stickers and labels as you need them. Most of us don’t want to label everything in sight, but a few well-chosen, beautiful labels will enhance your organization efforts.

Here we’ve detailed our top 10 choices for customized stickers for your home.

  1. Labels for Your Bathroom
    Large, clear bathroom jars, whether glass or acrylic, are a beautiful, clean way to store display toiletry supplies. This streamlined look enhances a spa effect in your bathroom. Adding large labels in a personalized style will coordinate these nondescript jars to match the atmosphere you’re creating in your bathroom.

    Design these labels to match the supplies you normally keep on-hand, and transfer these supplies out of their unattractive packaging into sleek, labeled jars.

  2. Labels for Art Caddy Organizer
    Any family who has been graced by a budding artist will know that the art supply situation can get out of control rapidly. Fortunately, the fix is simple: purchase a vertical stacking plastic cabinet of drawers and label the drawer fronts with the supplies that should be stored within.

    These cabinets come with and without wheels, and labels can easily be removed and replaced as the contents change over time.

  3. Oversized Labels for the Garage
    Often when tackling home organizing, the garage presents the largest challenge. Shelves full of items sitting side-by-side look cluttered and haphazard, presenting a daunting challenge to a household member who is just looking for last year’s holiday lights!

    The solution: purchase good-quality rubber or plastic bins for your garage shelves, and label them with attractive, matching, oversized labels advertising their contents. Your garage will look tidy and uniform, and you’ll be able to find what you need quickly the next time you’re searching

  4. Spice Jar Labels
    Bulk spices save a pretty penny over the small grocery jars, but you’ll pay for it with the lack of included airtight packaging. Because spices become stale very quickly when they are exposed to air, tightly-closed jars are essential to preserving the delicious, delicate flavors and aromas.

    Once you’ve transferred these bagged spices into large, airtight jars, add labels to prevent you from confusing your mace with your allspice. This is especially useful for any spices you tend to keep on-hand year round, like chili powder and cinnamon.

  5. Mason Jar Labels
    You can store almost any dry good in mason jars of various sizes; flour, spices, pastas, cereals, chocolate chips, dried coconut – if it’s in your pantry, you can probably store it in a mason jar.

    Consider adding customized stickers or labels to your jars to make them a more permanent-looking, intentional part of your kitchen.

  6. Pantry Basket Labels
    If you choose to keep your dry pantry goods in their original containers, you can still benefit from the organizational magic of labels; simply organize dry goods according to type, place them in a lined wicker basket, and attach a label or sticker on a tag that be either strung from the handle or affixed right to the front of the basket (depending on the type of basket you choose).
  7. Toy Basket Labels
    Help children keep their toys organized by placing labels or stickers on the front of their toy bins or baskets. Pictures can be substituted for words for the very young, but the teaching organization skills by using labels is very effective.
  8. Label Files and Drawers
    For your home office, smaller labels can be useful for your files and drawers. Once you’ve organized, order labels to ensure that neither you nor other household members will come along behind you and undo what you’ve so carefully created.
  9. Label cables
    Rather than get behind your computer or television to trace cables, take a tip from the pros and attach a label tag. That way, you’ll know which cable is which by just checking the power strip, saving yourself time and saving your knees, too!
  10. Store Office Supplies in Labeled Containers
    Relocate items from your desktop into various sizes of storage containers. Label these containers by their contents and place them out of sight in closets, cupboards, or drawers, thus visually and practically decluttering the space. The effect will soothe your mind when you’re trying to work, and will keep your home office from detracting from the beauty of the rest of your carefully organized (and labeled) home.
