Do’s & Don’t for Designing Decals, Stickers or Labels:
The first step is choosing your design; seems easy enough, right? The higher contrast images are better to use, as they are usually cleaner and have bright colours.
#1 Simplify your design, especially if it is a message you want to relay. A large, complicated decal or sticker is not going to catch anyone’s attention.
#2 While it is true that bigger objects are easier to see, you have to keep your audience in mind.
#3 Think about being more unique in shape. While rectangles are nice, they are grossly overused.
#4 You don’t have to be a stagnant sticker maker; backgrounds can incorporate colour.
#5 Put some small advertising information on it, something that will make the consumer want to dig a little deeper.
#6 Adjust your levels of stickiness appropriately. It is typically not a good idea to use face adhesives, as it limits the placement prospects and are less likely to be used.
