What can custom stickers be used for?

There are endless possibilities when it comes to using custom stickers. Let's go over a few ideas so you can decide what type of stickers will work best for your business before using them and starting to sell them.

Product packaging

Of course, one of the most popular uses for custom stickers is for product packaging. If you have a physical product that you sell, whether it's in a brick-and-mortar store or online, adding a custom paper sticker can really make it stand out from the competition.

Adorn products and product packaging with stickers that showcase your brand name, accompanied by a unique design!

Add logo stickers to seal product boxes and shipping mailers, or use them to indicate a fragile package on shipping containers. You can even pair paper stickers with other compostable packaging products, like water-activated tape and kraft hang tags, for a fully eco-friendly unboxing experience!

You can use your custom sticker to showcase your brand logo, display a custom QR code, add a fun message, or even just include your contact information so customers can easily get in touch with you. It adds dimension (in a tiny package, no less!) to the unboxing experience and can really make your product pop!

Brand awareness

Another great use for custom stickers is to build brand awareness. If you hand out stickers with your company logo or website URL, people will see it every time they look at the sticker. And, if they like what they see, you may just inspire them to check out your products or services!

Plus, it's easy to track how far your stickers are spreading on social media by using branded hashtags. It is a great way to build some buzz around your business while going the extra mile to impress customers.

Branded merch

Another fun use for custom stickers is to create branded merch. You can sell stickers with unique shapes and colors as a way to promote your business. This is an excellent option if you're looking for a low-cost way to get started with selling merch.

At trade shows, you can also give them away alongside other branded merch, like t-shirts or tote bags. No one can deny the joy of receiving free stickers to personalize belongings with!


Last but not least, you can also sell stickers as decals that people can buy. Decals differ from regular stickers in that they are usually made of thicker material and are meant to be applied to things like laptops, glass, and cars.

If you believe that people would want to show their support for your brand in a more permanent way, decals are the way to go. However, decals can often be made from environmentally harmful materials, so be sure to research with your customers where their preferences lie.

Ideas for where stickers can go

Create your business’s custom paper stickers with our easy-to-use design platform. No professional design experience is required!

Let’s list some places where you can stick your stickers! We covered water bottles, laptops, and cars, but here are a few more ideas.

On shop fronts: This is a great way to show your support for local businesses. A shop-front QR code sticker can be easily scanned by passerbys to access your brand’s website, set up an appointment, or display a restaurant menu! Plus, it's an easy way to get your brand in front of new people.

On phones: People love to personalize their phones and laptops with stickers. They also use their phones every day, so your brand will be in front of them every time they check the time or answer a call.

On notebooks: College students and professionals love to fill their laptops and notebooks with stickers. It's a great way to show your support for their school or company.

On skateboards: In skate culture, stickers are a big deal. You can put them on skateboards, helmets, and even shoes. If you're targeting this demographic, selling stickers is an effective way to get your brand in front of them.

Best places to sell stickers online

So, where can you sell these stickers? Here are a couple of the most popular online marketplaces for stickers:


This site is perfect for creative entrepreneurs. If you make your own stickers, you can sell them on Etsy. You'll need to set up a shop and list your products. Be sure to take great photos and write exciting descriptions to attract buyers.

Etsy is ideal for a blend between social media and ecommerce. It offers the ability to connect with customers and promote your products through hashtags, stories, and ads.


Shopify is one of the most popular eCommerce platforms. You'll need to set up a shop and list your products. If you're serious about selling stickers online, this is a great option.

Shopify is a dedicated platform, so it isn't free like Etsy. But it does offer more features and flexibility when it comes to design, shipping, and marketing.
