What Kinds Of Stickers Are Best For Laptops?

Are you looking to spruce up your laptop with colorful and creative stickers? Then look no further! Laptop stickers are a great way to show off your unique style, express yourself, and make your laptop stand out.

But with so many stickers available, it can be hard to know which ones will work best for laptops. That's why we've put together this guide – to help you find the perfect sticker for your machine! We'll discuss what laptop stickers are, different materials, sizes, designs, and more explicitly tailored for laptops. So let's get started on finding the ideal sticker for you!

The best materials for laptop stickers

Choosing the material for your stickers is the most critical decision because it determines the look and durability of your laptop stickers.

You can usually choose between vinyl stickers with different effects and paper stickers. But which one is right for you?

Vinyl stickers are the most versatile superstars of the sticker printing world. They are long-lasting, waterproof and scratch-resistant, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor use and hundreds of applications. Vinyl stickers are perfect for laptops as the occasional scratch, bump, or coffee spill will not interfere with their appearance or longevity. Our vinyl materials are:

  • White vinyl
  • Clear vinyl
  • Holographic vinyl
  • Glitter vinyl
  • Silver vinyl
  • Gold vinyl

On the other hand, you can also opt for plastic-free paper stickers. These sticky beauties are compostable, making them the most eco-friendly sticker option. However, paper stickers are not waterproof and can easily stain. If you keep your laptop in a case in your bag or backpack, paper stickers can still be an excellent option for you.

No matter which material you choose, you do not have to worry about the heat coming from your laptop. It will neither interfere with the stickiness of these materials nor will they randomly catch fire. You can also get any of these materials in any size or shape.

The best size for laptop stickers

There are no set sizes when you order custom stickers for your laptop. You can create a genuinely unique sticker that fits your specifications. However, there are a few things you need to take into consideration.

  • Ensure your sticker isn't too small or too large for your laptop. The ideal size will depend on both the model and make of your laptop, as well as the design of your sticker. Measure the area you wish to cover, and set the size of your sticker to fit within those parameters.
  • Look at your design at scale before printing. Set the artwork's dimensions on the screen to those of your stickers. Zoom out until it represents the actual size of your stickers. Can you read everything okay? Then you have found a great size.
  • Check that your laptop sticker won't obstruct any ports or ventilation systems on your device.

If you are still unsure, we recommend choosing any size between 2" and 3". These work on most laptops and for most designs. You can find a size comparison below.

The best adhesive for laptop stickers

The end-all and be-all of finding the perfect adhesive for laptop stickers is that they a) stick to your laptop without b) damaging your laptop when you want to remove them. So how do you find that? Look for a pressure-sensitive, medium-strength adhesive. What a mouthful.

Pressure-sensitive means that the glue on the back of your stickers is activated when you press down onto them. This allows you to experiment with different positions before pressing down and ensures an easy application.

A medium-strength adhesive will stick (and stay stuck) to your laptop no matter what but can also be removed without leaving adhesive residue. It also won't damage the surface of your laptop, making it safe to use. So if you're looking for a reliable and secure adhesive to stick your laptop sticker, pressure-sensitive, medium-strength adhesive is a great option!

Now that you know about the best materials, sizes and adhesives for laptop stickers, you can find the perfect one for your machine. Whether it's a funky design or a favorite quote, let your creative side take over when picking the ideal sticker for your device!
