Lead times

We manufacture your custom stickers and labels from scratch. Each order comes with a lead time - the time it takes to produce your stickers and labels.

Our lead time is 4 working days and starts after you have approved your design proof. This lead time is static and cannot be sped up. Shipping time is added to the 4-working-day lead time.

Lead time FAQs

Can I pay extra for a faster turnaround?

Unfortunately not. Our 4-working-day lead time cannot be sped up. It is static to ensure every order is treated equally and allows us to give transparent turnaround times.

Is your lead time flexible?

No. Our 4-working-day lead time is static and cannot be sped up.

Why is the approval time customer-dependent?

The time it takes customers to approve their design proof is hard to predict because it is subjective. Some customers see the email the second it hits their inbox and approve their proof immediately. Others request numerous changes which prolongs this process. Our main objective is that you are 100% happy with your design - so this timeline is up to you.

Why is shipping 1-10 days?

We ship worldwide and offer various shipping options. To get a reliable estimate, please view our shipping options.

What is the fastest way to get my order?

1. Submit a print-ready design

When a design is not print-ready, our design team sometimes has to request fonts, color codes, higher resolutions etc. For a speedy turnaround, please submit print-ready artwork.

2. Keep an eye on your inbox

The faster you give feedback on your design proof(s), the faster your artwork is ready to print. So check your emails and ensure the Sticker it email address is not flagged as spam.

3. Select an express shipping option

While our 4-working-day lead time cannot be sped up, shipping can. You can get your order within a few days after we've shipped it by choosing express shipping.
