Sticker company recommendation?

Postby haolegolucky » Fri Mar 23, 2012 10:23 am

I got an idea for stickers (and who doesn't love stickers?) for this year's burn.

Was hoping I could get some recommendations for a company to use that provides decent stickers for a reasonable price. Looking to make around 200+ and hoping they are waterproof (so they can be used on cars.)

Got any recommendations, especially if you have used the company before?

Mahalo!

We use The Sticker Guy out of Reno/Sparks. You can check them out by Googling the name. I am happy with the product but shipping to Hawaii might make it not the bargain that I experienced.

If you need small, I can do 1.5" x .5"
Any color you like as long as it's black text on white glossy poly (waterproof) label.
Quantity pricing for 250...... Free.

I can vouch for Weathermans' stickers. I have them plastered everywhere I look...on my phone, in my office, on the fridge, on my water bottles, on the trucks...I even made some magnets out of them.
What other people think about you is none of your business.

Ha! We have those stuck everywhere too. There's one on our camper that's been there since 2010 and hasn't faded at all (and faces the sun all year in the driveway), in fact I think we still have a strip of them on top of our fridge. LOL. If you want larger vinyl cut decals, PM me, I can put you in contact with another burner that does them.

Flat rate USPS shipping hooks it up. $15 for practically a cubic foot of whatever you want shipped. We send bars of soap all the way to Saipan like that.

Don't overlook your local businesses. I've always had very good luck contacting local printers and distributors in my town for services. Usually they're very concerned about providing a good service because they know that their success depends on repeat customers and referrals. Use yelp for reviews and always call ahead to a few places to ask for a quote. That way you can talk to them and do some comparison shopping before going with your pick.

AGREED as well! Aloha a'ina and help keep the Hawaiian economy strong!

I found a few local printers:

http://www.doxaprint.com/ - Kauai

Ok.. I'm homesick now.
