What makes vinyl stickers different to regular stickers?

Vinyl stickers are made to be more durable than regular stickers. They are designed to last longer, withstand harsher conditions and can be used on surfaces other than paper. Vinyl stickers are made to be scratch resistant, so you can stick them in places where they may come into contact with friction or touch other objects outside of the safety of a paper notebook. They are also made to be weatherproof, which means they can be used outdoors and in places where they are exposed to sunlight and different temperatures without fading or peeling. They are also waterproof, which means you can use them on lunch boxes, keep cups and water bottles and wash them up with the dishes, or use them on a surf board or object that may get wet without damaging the sticker! 

Where can you use vinyl stickers?

Vinyl stickers will adhere to a clean, smooth surface such as glass, plastic, glazed ceramic, smooth sealed wood or metal. They can be stuck to your computer, a window or wall, or even your car, as long as the surface is flat and smooth. You can also use vinyl stickers on book covers, water bottles, skateboards, helmets, pot plants or even your phone case.

6 Ways to Use Vinyl Stickers:

1. Decorate your drink bottle, keep cup or lunch box. 
Vinyl stickers can be used in the dishwasher or rinsed in the sink, so they're great for decorating and customising your drink bottle, keep cup or lunch box. It also makes it easy to identify your things easily without getting them mixed up with other co-workers, students or friends. 

2. Decorate your phone case, laptop or i-pad. 
Make your phone case look super cute with one of our vinyl stickers. They wont fade or scratch off like regular stickers. They're also great for decorating your laptop or laptop case or i-pad case. You could also decorate a non-fabric pencil case! We love choosing motivational messages to keep us on track with studying and work goals! 

3. Decorate your planners, journals & notebooks. 
Decorate the outside or inside of your favourite planners, journals and notebooks. If you want to personalise the cover of your planner or journal, vinyl stickers are perfect as they are scratch resistant and fade-proof. We have plenty of vinyl stickers that would be great for a reading journal or self care journal, or weekly planner.
