Bumper stickers aren't just for cars anymore. You will find these stickers in many places, including cubicles and desks across the country, on the covers of books and binders in high schools and colleges from coast to coast, on walls in bedrooms, and just about any other place that has a flat surface in need of some special décor. Of course, you will also find them on the backs of vehicles, which was their intended home in the first place!
People use stickers for a variety of different reasons. Some use them to promote a company, service, or product of some kind. Others use them to promote a website, a band, a school, and more. You can even use them to promote your individuality! With all of the different reasons to use these stickers, if you are considering bumper sticker printing, you need to make sure that you know as much about the stickers and the companies that offer them as possible.
The first thing you need is a design, logo, or phrase for your bumper sticker. Assuming that you have all of the artwork and layout completed for the sticker, you will then need to find a bumper sticker printing company that will be able to create the stickers for you. While you may be tempted to use a home printer to do your own bumper sticker printing, avoid that temptation. The stickers that you print on your home printer are not going to be high quality - they will likely bleed, and they will not be from the same, heavy duty materials that a professional company uses.
One of the most important things that you are going to need to consider when looking for a sticker printing company is they type of materials that they use. You should choose to use a company that offers flexographic printing on vinyl. This will give you the best possible bumper sticker. Vinyl is a great material for stickers because it will last and it can stand up to the weather. Since many people still put these stickers on their vehicle, you need to have a strong material such as vinyl.
In addition to the material, you need to know about the colors. Always choose a bumper sticker printing company that is able to offer you a wide array of colors for your stickers. You want the sticker to match your vision as closely as possible. In addition to the color, consider the shape. Oval bumper stickers are popular as well.
Check out the site that offers the bumper sticker printing. You will often find that the sites offer more than just bumper stickers. Check out the other shapes and styles of stickers they offer and see if you want to add any of those as well. Some of them even have their own sticker stores that have designs already on them. The sticker shop you choose should be able to give you many great options for your stickers, no matter what you want!
You should also check the pricing for the stickers. Depending on the number of stickers that you order, this price will vary. However, stickers are one of the most cost effective forms of advertising available. Some companies will even offer discounts when you order in bulk.
Once you know the cost of the stickers, you will want to know how long it takes them to arrive. Bumper sticker printing doesn't usually take long, and you can find companies that are able to offer a 24hr turnaround if you need them that fast.
