Are you a true DIY expert and are looking for your next project? Or would you simply like to change a little something in your space but are not quite sure where to start? 

We are here to help you with a rather unconventional suggestion: custom stickers and labels. Yes, you read that right! 

In this article, we will talk you through which stickers are perfect for a quick home makeover and explain why customization is a true game changer. 

But before we jump right into the many ways you can use stickers at home, let’s look at the basics. Like most sticker printers, we will be using two terms to refer to these little adhesive-backed powerhouses: stickers and labels. There is no inherent difference between the two. In fact, when peeled and applied, they look exactly the same. 

As the below image shows, stickers are individually cut, whereas labels arrive on sheets. While stickers are perfect for giveaways, labels are the right choice if you have to apply hundreds of them to your product as they can be peeled 65% faster than stickers. 

Now, we are ready to dive into the world of custom stickers and labels. We have collected four different types of stickers you can use to elevate your space.

  1. Transfer stickers

You might know these as wall decals or wall tattoos. No matter what you call them, they are a great way to brighten up even rented space. Transfer stickers are made from thick vinyl, which means they can easily be removed without leaving adhesive residue.

The great thing about transfer stickers is that each individual part of your design is peelable, creating a great effect on your wall. Investing in a custom sticker means that you can create your artwork and are not stuck with a generic design but can let your creativity run free.

They are perfect for nurseries, kitchen or living room stickers and allow you to get your personality on the wall! 

  1. Vinyl stickers 

Vinyl is the most versatile sticker material on the market. They are perfect for thousands of applications indoors as well as outdoors, where they can last up to three years. 

A great way to use vinyl stickers is for name tags for lunch boxes or water bottles. Especially if you have a child in kindergarten, you will know the struggle of mixed up belongings. With name tags, this can be avoided, and you get to create your own design. If you are unsure how to go about this, we recommend platforms like Canva, where you can create designs like this within minutes.

  1. Floor graphics 

Floor graphics have become a familiar sight since the outbreak of Covid-19. Being on the floor, floor graphics are made from thick, resistant vinyl that withstands scratches and scuffing. Many sticker printers offer a textured finish on this material, which is super important for safety as it means no one will slip on them. 

While they are a great way to remind us to socially distance, there are many more ways these can be used. One of them is a nursery. Huge designs can be printed onto floor graphics, which means you can have anything from individually cut zoo animals to a racing track on the playroom floor.  

  1. Biodegradable paper labels 

Do you love to organize your home and stay on top of things? Then you will love paper labels. They are perfect for any indoor application and, being made of sugarcane fiber, linen and hemp, they can be composted in your food waste bin. Made out of paper, these labels are easy to write on which makes them incredibly versatile. 

Have you been wanting to give you pantries a good clear out? Use the chances to get rid of all plastic packaging and fill your pasta and rice in beautiful jars which you can then label them as to not confuse your couscous with quinoa. 

You can also use them to keep your home office organized, especially if you have been working from home since the start of the pandemic. We all know how important it is to keep our sanity when working remotely, so make sure to stay on top of your files and printouts by putting them in labelled folders.
