A guide to stickers for bikes

Customisable stickers for bikes are incredibly versatile and can be put to all kinds of wonderfully creative uses. Here, we run you through some ways you can use our high-quality, super-durable printed stickers to upgrade your bicycle.

Make a bike your own

Many bikes will come with their own branding either on the paintwork or stickered on, but there’s still plenty of space to add your customization. You can either stick over painted branding or apply new stickers after removing the old ones to make a bike feel more your own.

Using our stickers, you can apply whatever artwork or logo you’d like. This is also a great way to help your kid put their own stamp on a hand-me-down bike.

You can use these custom stickers as a method to differentiate between bikes. For example, if you keep yours in a bike shed with lots of similar models, or if you race and you need to find your bike quickly. With our custom-printed stickers, you can make your bike stand out with whatever colors and designs you can dream up.

Education

If you’re looking to get into biking as a serious hobbyist, you’ll want to learn all the parts of your bike until you know them like the back of your hand. They say you never forget how to ride a bike, but after a few months of riding your fully labeled bicycle, you’ll never forget how to put one together either!

Using our stickers, you can custom print a series of labels for your bike with which part is which and any other information you might need, like part numbers. Stick each one on the right part of your bike and you’ll have them all memorized in no time.

Safety feature

As any regular cyclist will know, you can never be too careful about being seen at night. When lighting is low, you can get all manner of reflective gear to help your silhouette stand out and lights to help you find your way, but often the bike itself is overlooked when it comes to standing out.

You can change this with our ultra-bright neon stickers – they look brilliant and you can have any kind of design you can imagine on them and they’ll still be super eye-catching. Use several to make the outline of your bike stand out for all to see, even at night time. Find out all you need to know about neon stickers and why to use them here.

Accessory upgrades

You can get all kinds of great kit to improve your cycling experience. From turbo-trainers to the humble helmet, there’s no end to the accessories you can find that will help you have fun on two wheels.

If you want to make sure all of your gear stands out, our super-adhesive custom-printed stickers will stick to almost anything. Whatever extra peripherals you acquire, you can apply your favorite graphics, artwork or logos to them. If you’re struggling to get your kid to wear their helmet, why not customize it so it appeals more to their sense of adventure? You can even let them create their own design with our free online tool Graphic for personalized stickers.

Biking brand awareness

As we’ve mentioned already, there are all kinds of great bits of kit that you can get to improve your cycling experience. If you’re in the cycling business, you’ll want to be in with a chance of getting your brand to appear on your customers’ prized two-wheeled steed.

Whether you manufacture cycle clothing, pedals, gear trains, turbo trainers, brakes, forks, wheels, tyres, pumps, repair kits, lights, inner tubes, cycle shoes or any other item imaginable, giving out branded stickers with your products increases your brand exposure.
