Stickers are fun. They also make great handouts at trade shows or even party favors. Vinyl stickers look cool on binders and laptops, and kids appreciate them to brighten their school stuff and locker. Passing them out to vendors and customers is a great, reasonably priced way to get your brand to, pun intended, stick in their mind. There are quite a few websites that allow you to order stickers online, but which ones are the best? In part that depends on the kind of stickers you are looking for and the amount you intend to buy - smaller numbers tend, of course, to have a higher unit price. Five suggestions are StickerMule, Custom Sticker Makers, Sticker Guy, StandOut Stickers and Sticker You.
