Creating Custom Sticker Labels for Your Business

A Quick Guide to Making Print Labels and Adhesive Stickers for Your Business

 custom sticker labels

Custom sticker labels are an effective way to imprint your brand on the minds of your customers, and without them even realizing it.

 

Think about your shopping habits. You look for the familiar label, right? That’s the easiest way to identify your favourite brands. Whether it is the company name in a specific font and colours, the logo or a symbol, you remember it and reach for it almost subconsciously.

 

Adhesive stickers or print labels are one of the most versatile marketing tools any business can have. They allow you to advertise your products or services virtually anywhere. Stick them on packaging, products, walls, doors, glass bottles, a discount coupon, thank you card or any type of promotional material. They work quietly and cost-effectively, and can create as much of an impact as any other branded merchandise.

 

How to create custom sticker labels for your business:

 

  1. Create a document: Typically size 8.5 inches by 11 inches in a vertical format. For clear printing, ensure the resolution is 300 pixels per inch.
  2. Choose a shape: Use the rectangle tool, ellipse tool, rounded rectangle tool or the polygon tool to draw your label. You can even combine one or more of them for a unique shape, or distort the regular lines to make it more attractive.
  3. Add colour: Fill in any colour you want but, don’t overdo it. Also keep in mind your printing cost.
  4. Include text: Keep it simple, be concise and more importantly, ensure the font you select is readable. Then add your logo or symbol to reinforce your brand messaging.
  5. Save it as a PDF document for printing: You can still make changes later if needed.

 

Tip: Copy and duplicate to fill the page leaving enough space in between each custom sticker label. You can also make several versions of the adhesive sticker/print label by changing colours and your design or shape to complete the set.

Hiring a Graphic Designer for your Small Business

Hiring a graphic designer for your small business is a big step in solidifying your company’s brand identity. The decision of whom to hire and how much to spend on design work should not be taken lightly as the wrong decision can prove costly. It is important to consider the reasons why to hire a designer and what to look for in a designer before agreeing to a logo or look that will be your corporate identity.

Why should you hire a graphic designer?

  • You don’t have an aptitude for creative design
  • Time is of the essence
  • You want to hand out print marketing materials with confidence
  • Ensure brand consistency
  • Cheaper to get a pro rather than waste time learning graphic design skills

Now that you’ve decided you should hire a designer, there are many facets of design work you need to consider before you start interviewing freelance candidates. Starting from the vision of your project to signing a cheque for services rendered, you want to communicate clear design goals to candidates.

  1. Clearly define the scale of the project and list design services needed from logo creation to business card, letterhead and promotional item design.
  2. View the designer’s online portfolio and only book a consultation if you really like their work. Confirm if the designer charges a consultation or meeting fee.
  3. Ask for references and make sure your personalities will work well together. Ensure you feel comfortable with the designer as you will need to be upfront with any changes or adjustments to their designs. An experienced designer will be able to act professionally no matter how demanding the client is.
  4. Confirm prices with detailed quotes and an hourly rate breakdown. An estimate can balloon so ask probing questions so you don’t end up surprised. Before signing on, compare costs with other designers.
  5. Find out deliverable details and number of design files included. Ensure ownership of logo designs and files for reprinting.

How to Write a Greeting Card

Seasonal greeting cards offer the unique opportunity to connect with friends and family you may not get to speak to often. Holiday letters and cards will soon be filling post office boxes with greetings of holiday cheer. Many families take the holidays as their chance to pen overly detailed newsletters that do little more than brag or boast. Learning to write a holiday newsletter or greeting card will help ensure your holiday family update doesn’t go unnoticed.

Here are four essential tips for writing a greeting card:

Get a head start. Make the holidays easy on yourself by sitting down to pen your card or newsletter early. Take time to update your address book and ensure you won’t have any greeting cards returned to sender. Give yourself time to edit, revise and run your ideas by family members. The sooner you get your cards in the post office box the sooner you will be spreading holiday joy.

Resist the urge to boast or embellish. No one likes a bragger. Family and friends expect you to keep it real and want to know the truth rather than a ridiculous presentation of your year. Avoid undignified casual mentions of recent expensive purchases or excessive luxury.

Keep it short and sweet. No one needs to know the basics of your daily morning routine or the grueling process your son went through to decide his university major. Simple and concise writing will keep your readers interested and wanting more. Pick up the phone if you want to share in detail.

End on a personal note. Draw attention back to the person you are writing to with a sincere closing. If you are using a template or newsletter style greeting, consider a short handwritten note to add a personal touch.


ePrintFast
has a wide selection of holiday themed greeting cards to spread festive joy from our family to yours and beyond. Easily upload your custom design or use one of our templates and cut down on the holiday stress.

How to Write a Sales Letter

Writing an introductory sales letter is a vital step in any campaign. Despite living in a digital age, many sales professionals find that meaningful leads are generated the old-fashioned way — through direct mail. While constructing a sales pitch can be tricky for small business owners, it is important to get your letter read to spark interest and drive sales. Here are some simple tips for constructing a sales letter that will garner results:

  1. Capture your reader’s attention by personalizing the letter with the person’s name and identifying how your product can address their individual needs. Try using a catchy headline or tagline that will catch attention and draw the reader’s eye down the page.

  2. Direct your reader to action with a strong incentive but be sure to show what the positive outcome will be. Even the best call to action can fall flat unless it shows a clear path to success in rectifying a problem your customer may have.

  3. Follow through on promises and never offer an incentive without intending to honour it. While it is important to direct your reader to action, it is equally important to demonstrate how you will work collaboratively with your client to deliver what your company is selling. Setting clear expectations helps avoid confusion when your client is ready to sign on the dotted line.

  4. Organize your letter and include a postscript as it piques reader interest and directs the eye through the body of the letter to the bottom of the page. A clear P.S at the bottom of the page is a great way to capture interest especially when someone is skim reading.

ePrintFast offers a range of high quality letterhead and envelopes to help promote the professional image of your growing business. Easy templates and the option to use the design online tool makes creating your own professional products simple just a few clicks away.
