How To Choose The Best Sticker, Label, or Decal.
When it comes to choosing what type of sticker, label, or decal is best for your project, it can be a real minefield! There are so many options – Roll labels, clear vinyl, permanent stickers, decals, window clings, floor stickers, wall lettering, reusable stickers, wall graphics, magnets, permanent stickers. Seriously! The process can be a right conundrum, especially if you don’t know where to start.
The process is exceptionally simple, if you break it down into small, manageable parts. Firstly, what’s your sticker for? It might be a personal project, like home decorating; a study project; or, a business project.
For a personal project you’re your own target market and do need to be happy with the overall outcome. For a study project or business project, you need to consider the affect your sticker will have on others. So, before you consider the following, just think on what kind of impact you want to make on your target market.
For example. If it’s a study project, you probably want to receive a good grade or result. If it’s a business project, you may want to attract attention, create impact and draw customers to make a purchase or hire your services.
Stickers and labels can achieve your goals, which brings us to the next stage of actually deciding what will be the best sticker, label, or decal for your project.
A LITTLE Q & A
1. What type of surface will your sticker be applied to?
Glass, windows, floors, walls, wood, paper, plastic, fabric, metal, concrete, car doors. The type of surface makes all the difference to the kind of sticker or label you need. For example, if your label is for the inside of a window, you might need a window cling! But if you are sticking multiple stickers to a paper surface, you might be satisfied with roll labels!
2. What type of application method do you require?
Removable, reusable, permanent, stick-on, iron on transfer.
Knowing what type of application your sticker will take establishes the type of material the product will be printed on. For example, an iron on transfer is quite a different material to a magnet.
3. What elements must your sticker withstand?
Extreme temperatures, water, various weather elements.
The durability requirements of your sticker will directly impact the type of material needed. A high-quality vinyl is usually the best material for stickers that are required to withstand outdoor weather or high temperatures.
Knowing what type of surface your sticker will be applied to, the application method, and the required durability will assist you to make the right decisions about the most suitable sticker, label or decal for your project.
