StickerYou.com is an online platform where users can upload designs and logo to create custom stickers, labels, decals, temporary tattoos and more. They first made their mark by building a patented die-cut algorithm which die-cuts stickers and labels to the exact shape of the design digitally, without the exorbitant costs of manufacturing a custom die for each unique job. This revolutionary technology meant customers could order short runs of custom die-cut stickers and labels without the huge cost. This was to the benefit for small businesses as the technology allowed them to create small quantities of custom labels for their smaller inventory and maximize their branding budget.
Now StickerYou has introduced more differentiating innovation to their online platform that will prove a boon for small and medium sized businesses. The company has launched an automation on the ordering of large format decals. A user can now upload a logo or design to the platform and order the decal on a variety of materials at any size. The entire process is done online by the user without the assistance of a salesperson. Typically the ordering process for large signage is manual and can prove laborious. However, now through StickerYou.com, large decals for outdoor or indoor walls, floors or windows can be ordered in a matter of minutes from your own computer 24/7.
The convenience of the platform and automation of the site provides an advantage, but the material itself yields even more benefits. Overall the quality and durability of the material is high. They even offer a material that is designed for use outside on the street or exterior of a building. It has a non-slip exterior and special adhesive that moulds to rough surfaces such as sidewalks or brick. Each decal product is easy to apply yourself and can be removed without causing any damage to the surface. For small businesses this means signage can be changed on a regular basis to promote new products, advertise promotional offers or provide new information. Moreover, midsized businesses might find it useful for event branding, creating a beautiful stands at affordable price in a glimpse of an eye.
StickerYou made this change to their site at the request of their customers. “We have surpassed 100,000 customers, and and a major request among them was to have the ability to automatically order large size die-cut stickers or wall decals” explains Andrew Witkin, CEO. The change to the site includes the ability to order large formal decals up to 48” x 72” in size. The same die-cut technology they use for their stickers and labels will also pertain to large format decals as well, allowing irregular or uniquely shaped decals to be created.
The company, which just celebrated their 5 year anniversary is a small business, but growing, business itself. “We understand as well as anyone the struggle it can be to compete. We believe this technology will help small businesses brand themselves better,” says Witkin.
