POST & GRAPHIC UPDATED OCTOBER 20, 2021
I posted about the awesome coasters I made and I quickly found out about their problematic CEO and how much the company doesn’t align with my personal beliefs. I’ve used stickermule for awhile for my stickers so I quickly set about trying to find alternate sources and promised to share what I found. so here goes…
- I differentiate stickers and labels because there’s actually a difference on a lot of these sites.
- packaging refers to boxes, bags, bubble mailers, etc.
- marketing for me means business cards, letterhead, post cards, flyers
- coasters are specific to solving my current query but maybe you’re looking too
I’ve used moo for YEARS - I love them and their quality products (they’re based here in rhode island!) that being said, they’re kinda spendy so I typically wait for a sale to order my postcards, mini cards (for jewelry hang tags) and stickers. (I can hook you up with a discount code if you’re looking to order!)
I found stickeryou last year when I was trying find an iron-on label to brand my needlepoint canvas designs. you can’t beat the quality and price and I’m intrigued about their huge variety of stickers. they’re always running great discounts.
noissue is the tissue paper I use in some of my shipping. they have a great variety of products and I love that sustainability is one of their core values.
stickerjunkie has a very limited offering and isn’t a company I’ve used before but was recommended when I mentioned my dilemma.
packlane is specific to boxes and packaging but I used them in my last job and they’re great. and I love that the designing possibilities are endless.
vistaprint does it all and offers periodic discount codes.
social imprints was recommended.
not included in my handy dandy chart above is name maker. I’ve been using them even longer than moo and I love their ribbons.
also, I make my calendars through a college friend - Adam at stone pier - you should definitely hit him up for your projects.
I’ll continue to research options and update here as I go but I’d love to hear if you know of companies with great products but I’d especially love to learn about any black-owned businesses.
