Despite the playful promotional angle stickers can offer businesses, stickers are also a fast and trendy way to connect with customers. Not only are they increasingly popular among current consumers, they also speak to a wide range of demographics.

Here are a few ideas that will help you use stickers as an effective tool to increase your business’ visibility and reinforce your brand identity:

#1) Let your customer endorse you.
If you have a logo or brand that is popular in your community let your
customers "like" you on their gear.

We want to belong to the community, and if your business wants to
build community let your members/customers join by indicating their
membership by applying a sticker to their personal things.

I was there. Is your brand, event or project a destination? A sticker
says I've been there.

Ian's Pizza



A little hometown love today for me. Ian's Pizza in Chicago is the originator of this pizza slut sticker. You can also get that phrase on a T-shirt for twenty bucks. OK, so I lied; Ian's is based in Madison, Wisconsin, with stores in Chicago. But I suppose it's not the only cool thing that's made it to Chicago from Madison. And just for fun, here's the Urban Dictionary page for pizza slut. It's a little dirty.
