Today, we're sharing three creative sticker design ideas for your business.
Considerations for Branded Stickers
Stickers may be small, but they can make a big impact! Before you start designing, it helps to have a strategy in place for what you want your sticker to look like and achieve. To create a sticker that best represents your brand, consider the points below.
Colors: What colors do you use to represent your brand? Incorporate these into your sticker design for consistency across your online and offline channels. When you're designing a custom sticker with noissue, you can use as many colors as you'd like in your design. We print with CMYK colors in digital and offset printing, depending on which sticker type you select.
Typography: Do you have a brand font, a logo that should look a certain way or a message you want to share with customers? Use this in your sticker branding, but remember stickers are a smaller surface area so be sure to choose a font that is easy to read and don't try pack too much text in.
Sticker shape: Where is your sticker being placed, and what shape would best suit the surface it's being applied to? noissue's stickers come in oval, rectangular, circle, square and die-cut shapes. Custom Die-Cut Stickers are a great way to add personality to your brand because their shape is completely customizable, so they can made in the shape of your brand logo or icon.
Finish: What type of finish do you want on your sticker? A matte finish will give your stickers a more sleek, natural look, while a glossy finish will give your sticker a more premium look. Here at noissue, our stickers are uncoated as it's the more sustainable option. Glossy finishes are often created from a plastic coating, which means the sticker can't be composted – but ours can!
End-of-life care: How will you or your customer dispose of the sticker once you're finished using it? noissue's Custom Sticker range is compostable and recyclable, which means you aren't creating excess waste in the packaging process. Even the liner our stickers come on is curbside recyclable!
What to Include On the Sticker Design
Now onto the fun part: designing a custom creation! There's no need to be a graphic designer to create a great looking sticker. Here are a few things you can include in your custom sticker design.
Logo: A logo is a great way to make your sticker instantly recognizable and associated with your business. If you don't have a logo, consider using your business name or your initials instead.
Business Name: This is a tried and true marketing method that helps with brand recognition and recall. It also means people can easily find you online.
QR code: Add a QR code to your sticker so people can scan it and quickly learn more about your business. The code can lead to a microsite, your latest product collection, a menu, or a customer reviews page.
Contact information: Include your contact information on your sticker so if someone wants to get in touch with you immediately, they can. That could be your email address, website or social media handles.
Your brand tagline: Use a tagline to communicate what your business is all about. Keep it short, sweet, and snappy – you don't have much surface area!
A thank you message: Include a thank you message on your sticker to show your appreciation for your customers. Gratitude goes a long way!
'Fragile' or 'Please don't bend': This is a great practical use of a sticker on the outside of a package if you're shipping fragile goods or something that needs to stay in place, like an art print.
These are just a few of the many ways to get creative with your sticker design. Use these ideas as a starting point, and let your creativity flow.
