The variety of platforms come in the form of sticker businesses like Stickers, Moo, Sticker Mule being top of the list. These platforms offer custom stickers and easy to use prompts that invite customers to upload their own design or artwork.
Other options, like other printers, Online Labels provide platforms that have ready to go templates where you can easily tick a few prompts, select your size, shape, and template backgrounds and within five minutes you’ve made a pretty sticker. And there’s nothing wrong with using templates, they’re easy to use and are a fast track to getting the job done!
The issue, though, is that sometimes the templates lack originality or uniqueness, especially when a template becomes popular and every second person has it. Granted, popularity is seen as a positive thing, and it’s human to enjoy familiarity in one another’s choices; however, in this case, having the same sticker or business card can actually undermine the image, brand, or professionalism of a business.
This is where Boing Boing Stickers are a little different. Yes, they offer custom stickers where you can upload a design, and it’s very simple to include your file in the order. But did you know they also offer a unique Sticker Design Suite on their website, which provides the capacity for customers to create original stickers using advanced design software?
They really do, and here are the instructions to help you access the Design Suite.
HOW TO ACCESS THE SOFTWARE
