How To Increase Leads & Sales Using Custom Stickers To Entice Your Target Audience

How To Increase Leads & Sales Using Custom Stickers To Entice Your Target Audience


Businesses and brands are always looking for new and innovative ways to attract more attention from their target audience. Even if you are aggressive with your online and off-line marketing, you and your competitors are often using similar tools and resources.


To differentiate yourself, it's important to get creative and think outside the box—and an excellent way to do this is by creating custom stickers.


When I say custom stickers, don’t think of the cheap and cute stickers your kids play with—instead think of colorful, one-of-a-kind, highly artistic, branded stickers.


How Can Custom Stickers Enhance Your Marketing Campaigns


Custom stickers can be utilized in a variety of ways: as perks for new and existing clients, as an advertising method, and as a way to commemorate a special event.

Our stickers are well-crafted, and won’t be thrown away with ease like your business cards or flyers—meaning they become a constant reminder of your business, brand, product, event, or promotion.

5 Reasons Why Custom Stickers Are The Perfect Way To Market Your Business

  1. Brand-Building Tool—Custom stickers can be used to spread the word about your brand. Even if your sticker is nothing more than your logo, it is a memorable way to keep you top of mind.

  2. It’s Unexpected—Your target audience has grown to expect the same type of advertising and marketing from you, or from your industry. Custom stickers are unique and unexpected, making them more memorable.

  3. Increases Exposure—Custom stickers can be added to mailings, gift bags, handed out at the register, local fairs, and events, and added to donation contributions you distribute in the community.

  4. Increases Customer Engagement—It’s rare that your customers will talk to you about an ad or flyer that they saw for your business, but your custom stickers will get them talking about you—both to you and to others!

  5. They Be Exclusive Or Collectible—If you are looking to created limited edition or seasonal company paraphernalia, consider custom stickers. You could have a slightly different sticker produced annually, on a seasonal basis, or for special events. Even if these stickers are simply different variations of your logo—they can become highly collectable for your diehard fans.


While some companies may turn to pens and notepads—custom stickers are more memorable and much more fun!

There are numerous ways you can utilize custom stickers for new marketing endeavors—and in your current day-to-day operations.

Promotional product marketing is a must for any brand or business looking to gain expedient exposure, and stickers provide the following benefits:

  • They support your efforts to create a brand, not just a business.

  • They are an inexpensive, yet impactful way to grow your business—both for new and existing clients.

  • They are a marketing tool that can be distributed a variety of ways.

  • They allow you to get back to the basics with one-on-one engagement.

  • With proper placement and planning. Your custom stickers can quickly spread throughout your community.

  • Your custom stickers can even replace your business cards.


And yes, adults too enjoy a fun sticker that reminds them of their favorite brands and products.

Sometimes we overcomplicate things—and in turn get in our own way. With custom stickers you can simplify your marketing efforts to increase brand awareness within your target audience. If you are ready to enhance your marketing with custom stickers you can do so today by connecting with a member of our expert StickerTeam here at StickerGiant to help create your customized marketing tools.

“People love free stuff…” —STICKER Story John Frazee, Gravity Brewing



Gravity Brewing owner John Frazee is a former engineer turned craft brewer and has been brewing beer for 16 years. Located in the small town of Louisville, Colorado Gravity Brewing represents the best of local craft beer in a venue that inspires community.

Gravity Brewing is only a hop, skip, and a jump away from StickerGiant headquarters, so we couldn't pass up the chance to take a field trip with our film crew for an interview. It was particularly enlightening to hear about the ways Gravity prefers to rep their stickers for brand recognition. The overwhelming response? Festival swag. John says stickers are an easy and affordable way to spread the Gravity Brewing vibe. At Gravity, they love their customers. "Stickers help show fans how much they care." says John, and we couldn't agree more.

Q&A with John Frazee


What do people really dig about your product/services?:

I believe people like the fact that we always have a wide variety of high quality beer styles available. There is that saying, "Quality, not Quantity." Why settle for just one? We strive to have both. Belgian, German, American, etc. Session beers, big beers (although we lean towards the latter). We are excited to try it all and not cut any corners in the process.

Who are the awesome people behind the curtain at your company/project and what do they do?:

My two business partners are Julius Hummer (Brewmaster) and Ryan Bowers (Managing Partner). Julius has been brewing professionally his entire adult life and is the son of David Hummer (Original Founder/Brewmaster of Boulder Beer/Brewing Co). Ryan is a Mechanical Engineer and craft beer lover. He is an extreme resource when it comes to brewery design/engineering and business finance.

As for myself, I am a former long time home-brewer and practicing Civil Engineer. Julius and myself conceive and brew all of our beers together. I also manage the business, which is much less glamorous. We could not do any of this without our awesome tasting room staff: Steve, Abby, Kristy, Kat, Jenni, Karen, and several other friends/family/investors that have helped along the way.

Why/How do you use stickers as a marketing or outreach tactic?: 

People love free stuff. We hand out our stickers in our tasting room and at beer festivals. This is a simple and relatively inexpensive way to get our logo and brand in front of the beer drinking community and beyond. It is really cool when I'm out skiing and I see a Gravity sticker on a pair of skis or a helmet. People love to put them on their beer fridges as well.

What advice would you give to a company thinking about using stickers as a marketing tactic to wow their fans. What has worked for you, what hasn’t, etc?: 

Stickers are a no brainer in the craft beer world. Get them and never run out of them. Stick with a simple and consistent image/logo and use StickerGiant!!

List some ways that fans can support your brand to encourage growth apart from buying your product or service?:

We'd like to think we are pretty good at making beer, however, we will admit that we are not the best at marketing/advertising. If you like what your tasting and seeing, please spread the word. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on twitter. Join our e-mail list via our website. Grab some stickers next time we see you at the tasting room or a beer festival. Buy a cool t-shirt, hat, or hoodie and wear them all over town, every day, even when you sleep.
Attach a file or just a fun picture that speaks to your passions!

Promoting Your Band With Custom Stickers

He got kinda famous

He got kinda famous



The custom band sticker is a StickerGiant staple. Most new bands don't have much money for advertising or promotion. Stickers are incredibly cheap, easy to distribute, and can give you a presence in the places your audience hangs out. Custom stickers last a long time, don't spoil and never go out of style. They are easy to transport (hundreds will fit in your coat pocket) are very cheap to send in the mail and are a fun giveaway.

Our custom sticker printing services are second to none. For bands, we recommend keeping the stickers small, because there's more places for smaller stickers to go. Try to limit yourself to just a few colors, to keep the costs down. If your band has a logo, design your sticker around it, and always include some kind of contact information – email or a web address or a MySpace page. You want any potential fan seeing the sticker to be able to find you! Here are four ways to think about distributing your band's stickers:

1) Concerts of bands in the same genre are a good place to start. Bring them to concerts and hand them out, but resist sticking them all over the venue – they'll just get scraped off and piss off the staff. If the venue has a place where they encourage stickering, like a posterboard in a bathroom or something, definitely take advantage of it.

2) Include stickers with merchandise. If you are selling CDs, every CD should have a sticker or two included. If you have a gig, give a stack to the doorman to hand out to everyone attending.

3) If you have a MySpace page or a website, include an offer to send free stickers to fans. Ask them to friend you on MySpace and send an email to you. In exchange for free stickers you get a mailing list of potential fans that you can announce your gigs to. If you don't want to spend the money required to mail free stickers you can ask users of your websites to email for instructions on how to get free stickers. When the users write and email to you asking about the stickers, you can instruct them to send a self addressed stamped envelope (SASE) to you saving you the money and time required to label and send stickers out in the mail.

4) Last but not least, friends and family members are your core support group. Give them a few stickers each and ask them to spread the sticker love. You will be surprised where the stickers may end up.

You can tell we love band stickers at StickerGiant – just look at the bands that show up on this blog!
