I am currently in the process of switching manufacturers for my stickers. This decision was made for multiple reasons, one of which being that my previous manufacturer holds different values than my own. It is important to me that I do not inadvertently support causes that I do not agree with. This former manufacturer has also sent me several stickers with poor print quality with increasing frequency. I don't sell stickers that aren't up to my standards so this has caused me to lose quite a bit of stock.
I can assure you that my stickers are still of the utmost quality and remain waterproof and dishwasher safe.
I believe that the print quality of these new stickers is crisper and clearer than before. Additionally, the holographic effect with my new manufacturer is more rainbow-y.
The vinyl on the new stickers is slightly thinner than the previous manufacturer. Of all of the changes, this is the only small drawback. These stickers are still very high quality. Again they are waterproof, weatherproof and dishwasher safe.
The most significant change is that all stickers restocked with the new manufacturer will come with branded backing paper. This is a significant benefit because the branding is cute and customers can easily find my social media and website.
Non-holographic stickers also have a minor change in finish, as they will now have a glossy finish instead of a matte finish. The new manufacturer recommends this because their glossy finish has UV protection, making non-holographic stickers even more durable and hard wearing than they were before.
Thank you for your patience as stickers are switched over to this new style. I anticipate that all stickers will have been switched over by the end of 2023, but the change will be gradual.
