An arts and crafts lover’s best friend

Have you heard about the wonderful product that is printable vinyl sticker paper? If you have not you are missing out! Vinyl sticker paper has been gaining popularity among crafts lovers due to its versatility and ease of application. So let’s have a look at what it is and how you can use it.

Different types of printable vinyl sticker paper
There are different types of sticker paper on the market, however, waterproof vinyl sticker paper is probably the fan favorite because you can create colorful designs and use them to decorate surfaces both indoors and outdoors. Also, waterproof vinyl sticker paper is removable so you won’t have to worry about an uneven sticker placement on the first try.

If you do not want your stickers to have a glossy finish that is not a problem, you can simply buy matte sticker paper or even the transparent one.

Glossy inkjet vinyl sticker paper resembles an old-fashioned printable photo and is most suitable for indoor projects (such as laptops, tablets, furniture, etc.)

Matte vinyl sticker paper is remarkably durable so it is often used to decorate water bottles, sports equipment, mailboxes, and since it doesn’t have that much glare it is an excellent choice for a car bumper sticker.

Clear inkjet printable vinyl sticker paper gives the most professional results and that is why it is favored by small businesses worldwide.

And the best news of all? The vinyl sticker paper is compatible with any inkjet printer (as well as with laser printers). So you can create original designs on your computer, laptop, or tablet and then use your inkjet printer to create unique stickers that will stick to almost any surface in a few seconds and make your items more beautiful.

Getting creative with your printable vinyl sticker paper; various ways you can use your vinyl stickers
When it comes to the ways to use printable vinyl stickers the only limit is your imagination. Printable vinyl stickers are used by both individuals and brands to deliver a message, advertise products, and, of course, decorate various items. Waterproof vinyl stickers are much loved by parents and their little ones. Just imagine being able to decorate your books, walls, windows, furniture, gadgets, etc. with waterproof vinyl stickers depicting your favorite superheroes! That is every child’s dream and parents can use their children’s favorite vinyl stickers to encourage and reward them. And since the printable vinyl sticker paper is easily removable parents don’t have to worry about a messy cleanup.

But children are not the only ones excited about vinyl stickers. Adults probably have even more uses for them than kids. You can use these colorful stickers to mark your personal items at work (or even at home, if you are sharing a house with roommates). You can also make unique cards for any occasion to congratulate people in your life, or use the stickers to spruce up and give color to items in your home.

And you do not have to worry about the durability of the waterproof sticker paper; even if you put the decorated mugs in the dishwasher the sticker won’t budge.

Small businesses also use printable vinyl sticker paper to create posters for special promotions, to decorate cups and containers with brand logos, or to decorate their shops with colorful holiday designs.

Another noteworthy thing is that the vinyl sticker paper works well with Cricut, Silhouette, or another cutting machine you might have, which makes creating stickers even easier and faster.

Why vinyl stickers are the best
Printable sticker paper is made from vinyl which is a highly durable and affordable polymer (polyvinyl chloride a.k.a. PVC). This material can withstand moisture, changes in temperature, mechanical stress, and stretching. The elasticity allows the vinyl to fit the vast majority of surfaces and take the shape of an object perfectly. And even though the glue holds it in place for a very long time, once you decide that you do not want that vinyl sticker anymore it is easy to remove (and it causes no damage to the surface). 

This is why vinyl, which serves as the base for this type of sticker, is the best material for inkjet printable sticker paper.

Some of the most popular ways to use your printable vinyl stickers
Millions of printable vinyl stickers are used each year to decorate children’s rooms. Parents (especially those of toddlers) turn plain walls into complex universes full of colorful characters. Not only does this make the room more beautiful and entertain the child but it can also be highly educational. If your child is learning the alphabet, how to count, or how to tell time having relevant stickers on the wall will definitely help them achieve this goal.

Vinyl stickers are also very useful when teaching your child a foreign language. Just print out the items the names of which you want the child to learn; once he has mastered this section of the vocabulary you can remove the stickers without trace and put up the next batch.

Printable vinyl sticker paper is also frequently used to personalize gifts for loved ones and friends. You can print out your favorite photos, decorate some plain candles with them and give them to your friends to commemorate your special moments. 

And probably no one makes more use of printable vinyl stickers than teenagers. They can express their personalities and interests by decorating almost all of their belongings with their favorite stickers, so if you have a teenager who loves arts and crafts and you want to make them happy buy them some inkjet vinyl sticker paper and watch their creative juices flow.

In conclusion, printable vinyl sticker paper is an absolute must for all crafts lovers. Whether you are a child or an adult I am confident there are many things in your house that could benefit from having some colorful vinyl stickers placed on them.

And one of the best things about the printable vinyl sticker paper is how incredibly affordable and easy to use it is! Even if you are a complete beginner if you own any inkjet (or laser) printer you can create unique stickers in a matter of minutes without breaking the bank!
