A word from Lesley in Quoting Department –
Not sure what size stickers you need? We can help! The size field on our quote form frequently stumps potential customers. I can sympathize to this baffling question- before I started working at Websticker, I didn’t have a sense for standard sticker sizes either! It took me a few weeks of seeing actual samples of various sizes in the office to really get a sense for what sizes work best for customer’s varying needs.
There are a few things to consider when selecting a sticker’s size/shape. Here are a few suggestions to help with the decision:
1. Where are these custom stickers being applied? If your intent is to have the stickers be placed on back windows of cars, you probably don’t want something that’s going to take up a lot of real estate on the window (driving hazard). Think either long and skinny, or not much bigger than a cell phone. If you want your stickers to be stuck everywhere from water bottles to ski lift towers, consider a smaller size that doesn’t limit the surface space possibilities. Think the size of your palm or smaller. Small is beautiful, and more universal.
2. If you have a logo, what is the shape? If your logo is an obscure shape and it measures roughly 2” x 3”, it’s probably not going to look all that great in our 3” x 11.5” bumper sticker. We would suggest putting your logo into a size that fits better proportionately and minimizes wasted space, like a 3.5” circle. Or, die cut it to the exact shape. A strong composition makes for a strong statement. See this example (made by me- thank your lucky stars I’m not in the art department).
3. Still clueless? I had a photo shoot with a ruler, a dollar bill, and a bunch of our stock vinyl sizes to help you visual things a little better. When looking at the sizes, think about what you personally like and how the sizes would fit best on the places you would stick the stickers. Look around your room or office, or go take a walk out to your car with a ruler (or a dollar bill). If you don’t have an exact size nailed down, you can at least let us know an approximate size so that we can help guide you in the right direction!
Looking forward to quoting you and answering any questions about stickers… happy sizing!
