What are circle stickers and what are they used for?

Round stickers are a type of adhesive label that is round in shape. They are commonly used to identify products or services, provide contact information, or promote a brand or cause. Round stickers can be custom printed with text, logos, or images, and they are available in a variety of sizes and colors.

While they are often used for commercial purposes, round stickers can also be used for personal projects, such as scrapbooking or labeling storage containers. Whether you're looking to promote your business or simply add a personal touch to your belongings, round stickers are a great way to do it.

As a sticker maker, I frequently see round stickers being sold as logo stickers, brand stickers, or thank you stickers. Adding this type of generic (or custom) circle sticker to your shop is a great way to upsell if you're targeting small business owners.

The different types of circle stickers

There are many different types of round stickers, each with their own unique purpose and design. For example, clear circle labels are perfect for creating a professional look on products or packaging. They can also be used to highlight important information or instructions.

White circle labels are another popular option, and they can be used for a variety of purposes, including labeling file folders and envelopes. Color-coded circle labels are also available, and they can be used to organize files or color-code different types of information.

There are also thermal round stickers in various colors, so you can do black text on fluorescent colors to provide affordable variety to your customers. Whatever your needs, there is sure to be a type of circle sticker that will suit your needs.

How to use round stickers

If you need to add some extra flair to your labels, try using round stickers! They can be used to highlight important information, to draw attention to a sale, or simply to add a bit of personality to your products. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your round stickers:

  1. Start by choosing the right size sticker for your needs. Smaller stickers are great for labeling and organizing, while larger stickers can be used for advertising and decorating.
  2. Once you've selected the perfect size, it's time to choose your design. There are thousands of round stickers available online, so take your time and find something that reflects the brand or style.
  3. When it comes to applying your stickers, make sure the surface is clean and dry before you start. For best results, use a soft cloth or even a cotton swab to apply pressure evenly across the sticker.
  4. Once applied, allow the sticker to dry completely before moving on to the next project. Round stickers are an easy and fun way to add a personal touch to any project!

For business owners, you'll likely want to offer custom round stickers to your customers in 1-6″ sizes, and consider offering an oval, too. If you're using a Cricut, make sure it is aligned, because misalignment errors are very obvious on custom round stickers.

Where to buy round stickers

If you're looking for a great place to buy round stickers for resale, I would highly recommend OnlineLabels. They offer a wide variety of stickers, including custom designs, and they have an excellent reputation for quality and customer service. I've ordered from them several times and have always been happy with the results.

Another option is Amazon, which offers a wide selection of pre-made designs and blanks from a variety of sellers. Whichever option you choose, I'm sure you'll be happy with the results!

If you need a template, make sure you're using the appropriate paper – do you need paper for an Inkjet or Laser printer? Avery is really good about providing round sticker templates for your custom stickers.

Materials for round labels and custom labels

I prefer white vinyl for my stickers. White vinyl tends to be waterproof, and I find that OnlineLabel's white vinyl is very reliable. You can get other colors than just white vinyl, but I prefer it to maximize reusability.

You can also purchase roll labels or roll stickers. These are thermal round labels, so you'll need a thermal printer to produce these personalized round stickers. But thermal labels are really affordable ways to produce custom stickers, so definitely look into it.

The benefits of using round stickers

Round stickers are often used for labeling, instructional purposes, and decorative purposes. They are commonly round in shape with a adhesive back. There are many benefits of using round stickers.

Instantly attracts attention: A big benefit of round stickers is that they can easily grab attention. They are typically brightly colored which makes them stand out among other things. For this reason, they are often used for marketing purposes or to draw attention to important information.

Easy to apply and remove: Round stickers are also very easy to apply and remove. All you need to do is peel off the backing and stick it to the desired surface. When you want to remove it, simply heat up the sticker with a blow dryer and it will come right off without leaving any residue behind.

Durable and long lasting: Another great thing about round stickers is that they are durable and long lasting. They can withstand weather conditions and wear and tear so you don't have to worry about them coming off or fading over time.

Can be customized: Another great thing about round stickers is that they can be customized to fit your specific needs. You can choose the color, size, shape, and design of the sticker to really make it your own.

Can be easily resold: I never worry about custom ordering circle labels for my customers, because they can be easily resold to other customers. This is harder with some of the specialty precut rectangular labels.

Can be easily personalized: Round stickers are frequently personalized to support small businesses. These custom circle stickers serve as product labels, thank you notes, and feature your own artwork.
