They really make the sauce jars stand out from similar products and show a lighter side to the brand without being cheesy or generic.

Creative Uses for Stickers That Promote Your Brand

Stickers are a cost-effective way to brand your product and get the word out about your cause – who doesn’t love a free sticker? The cooler, the better. Some people actually collect stickers from their favorite places or events, which means getting your stickers out there in the hands of the general public increases your chances of drawing in loyal customers. Building a fan base is one ultimate key to success.

Most people are used to getting stickers in the mail with their order, but why not move your stickers to the streets? There are plenty of blank spots in the city just waiting to be stickered, so grab a handful of people and get to it!

Here are just a few examples of places your can stick your logo:

  • Trash cans – Everyone has to use them at some point in the day, so why not create a focal point while doing so? Slap a sticker under the lid or on the outside and give people something to smile about.



  • Car windows – Not on the window itself, as that would be vandalism, but under the wiper blades! If you’ve got the time and energy, you can create a little flyer with a sticker stapled to it then attack a local parking lot with your brand.



  • Bulletin boards – A lot of local businesses have a cork board set up where advertisements and business cards go, so go sticker them! If you want to give customers a way to contact you directly, leave a business card with the sticker, too. Otherwise, let the intrigue of your design encourage them seek you out. 


There are lots of creative ways to get all eyes on you – the crazier, the better! Make sure you keep it legal and think outside the box. Now that you know empty spots are just sticker places waiting to happen, keep your eyes peeled for some fantastic places to stick one down.

So you’ve started a new business, you’ve got a political campaign to run or just have a super worthy cause you’re ready to shout about from the mountain top. Good for you! Now how do you go about letting others know your aspirations?

One word: stickers!

No matter where you live in the world, chances are your local community (or one around you) has events throughout the years where vendors, artists and other local organizations can set up and get their info out to the masses. It can be a craft bazaar, a cultural event, a concert in the park or thousands of other things; the point is, you need to be there!

Let StickerGiant help you create a fantastically awesome sticker for your needs, then set up at these events to promote yourself. Give away stickers, business cards, fliers or brochures and let the word-of-mouth grapevine do the talking for you. And don’t be afraid to hand out stickers at political rallies or anywhere there’s a lot of people congregating together! Just walking through a crowd can allow you to network and make contacts through the power of stickers alone.

And do you know what that spells for you? V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!

Stickers Can Increase Fundraising in a Big Way

Short, simple and to the point. Those are the basics for every great sticker that’s trying to promote, well, anything, and something you should keep in mind. You already know about using stickers as a promotional tool for your existing clients and those targeted audiences you’re trying to reach, but have you ever thought of a clever sticker as a fundraising tool?

It’s an easy concept: you have a cause you need to get the word out about, and need funding to do so. To make money you sometimes have to spend a little money, and stickers are an exceptional way to make a low-cost return on your investment.

Why stickers? Here’s why!

Everyone loves stickers!

• Harder to lose than a business card

• Can be placed in easy-to-see areas for a larger audience

• People enjoy the novelty of stickers

You can use stickers for raffles, too – they’re fun and who doesn’t love a little something free? Have an item donated to your cause, make one yourself or give people the chance to have their name mentioned on your website or their picture taken for the paper. Sell stickers for a nominal fee ($1 each = 1 raffle entry, for example) and then hold the raffle close to your event. Give away stickers to everyone you meet. Put them on your car (or your friend’s car!) and roll around town. Wear one yourself!

Make your cause stand out, and people are more likely to donate. Do you have any other suggestions for how stickers can best be used for fundraising? Let us know in the comments below!
