Top 2 Online Sticker Printing Services Worth Trying
If you're a sticker creator and want to save some time by using an online sticker printing service to make your stickers, but don't want to skimp on quality, but also are on a budget, this is the review article for you.

 

I was in your shoes once. I printed each of my sticker sheets individually, and waited the 3 minutes for my Cricut machine to make the die cuts. Once I started to ramp up in volume, I realized that this method of producing stickers was slowly eating into my time for creativity. I didn't want to be pushed into manufacturing mode everyday anymore, so I sought out online sticker printing companies to do it for me.

Here were my pre-requisites for the sticker printing companies that I tested:

  • They were able to print high quality, weather-proof stickers 

  • Low minimum quantities (I didn't want to have to commit to 100 or more stickers if I was testing a new design)

  • The color match of the print was accurate to the product file I uploaded

  • The cost of printing stickers was low enough for me to still sell my stickers wholesale

  • They had discounts for shipping and/or volume

Best Online Sticker Printing Companies I Found

Sticker Mule

1. Sticker Mule

Sticker Mule was one of the few sticker printing companies that I tested that met all of my pre-requisites. Their minimum quantity is 50 stickers for bulk orders, but you can purchase sample packs of 10 custom designed stickers for $9 if you are just testing designs. When you're purchasing in bulk (100+), Sticker Mule will outshine its competitors in cost. The beauty is that you don't have to commit to that many stickers until you're seeing growth in your own sticker business!

The biggest factor of selecting them as my printer printer of choice is the product quality. I tested using Sticker Mule stickers with water bottles (you have to hand wash the bottle, but that's the case for all stickers!) and my laptop, and they've always have been my most durable stickers. 

They also have quick review and production times, so I usually get my sticker orders within 1 business week from purchase. I've used Sticker Mule over a dozen times within a year, and I've never had any order issues. 

Custom Stickers, Die Cut Stickers, Bumper Stickers - Sticker Mule

Full transparency, if you click this link, you'll get $10 to spend on custom stickers and other printed products, and I'll also get $10 for my own sticker production. You can purchase a sample pack of custom stickers of your own design here, so you can test the quality using your own designs for FREE. I think it's a win-win for both of us!

 

2. Sticker App

My (close) second choice for sticker printing companies is Sticker App. The minimum quantity for a single design is 25 for $26 for a 3" x 3" sticker. Sticker App also is the most cost effective for artists who are looking to produce lower quantities. Once you get into larger quantities (200+ stickers), that's where Sticker App will be more expensive to use than Sticker Mule.

One benefit of the Sticker App is their wide variety of sticker material options. From glitter to glow-in-the-dark to aluminum stickers, you have more options to test with this company.

You can purchase a sample pack for $2 on their site (no option to customize, though!) to get an in-person feel for all of their sticker material options.

 

Stores I didn't test due to high cost per sticker or high minimums

  • Sticker Robot - The die cut was not accurate to my file upload, and I didn't particularly like the high gloss finish of the sticker. Minimum 250 stickers at $0.64/sticker
  • U Printing - U Printing prints in bulk based on the number of orders they get per day. There's a possibility that you can get +/- 10% of what you actually order because of this. Also their cheapest option is a 70lb sticker glossy at $1.10/sticker (which is the thinnest sticker material available and is extremely low quality). For the weatherproof vinyl material, the price point is $1.22/sticker at a minimum of 250 stickers.

Nice post
To overcome that problem, we take aid of stickers. It becomes convenient to write on a surface such as that of a sticker. Even though, it wasn’t a common thing earlier but sticker printing has become fairly common these days, all thanks to technology.
