Do you love the look of laptop stickers, but are not quite sure whether you should give them a try? Are you transitioning from college to work and fear that your laptop stickers might be frowned upon?
We are here to reassure you: laptop stickers are amazing and will work in any setting. In this article, we will debunk three of the most common myths about sticking stickers to your laptop, giving you all the information you need to find your perfect fit.
So, let us jump straight into the nitty-gritty.
- They are unprofessional
Laptop stickers are a great way to show your personality, however, many people are unsure whether they should be a part of the corporate world.
Yet, a sticker alone can never be unprofessional. On the contrary: stickers are a long-established advertising tool that is very much a part of the business world. Only certain designs can be seen as unprofessional or inappropriate.
This is why we recommend getting your stickers custom printed. That way, you are in complete control of the design which not only suits your personality but your environment as well.
Generally speaking, creative companies and startups accept stickers as a form of self-expression more readily. Tech companies even encourage it, as stickers can aid employees in networking externally and internally. Twitter handles, slack channels and QR codes allow them to connect with each other.
- You need to get a special material for them
Your laptop can easily heat up, making many people think a special material is needed for laptop stickers. That is not true at all. Let us take a look at the basics of sticker materials.
Stickers are usually either made out of paper or plastic. While paper is recyclable, it should mostly be used for short-term indoor applications. Vinyl stickers are very durable and resistant to water, sunlight and scratches. They can also withstand temperatures up to 175°F.
When choosing a vinyl base, you can choose between different colors and effects like glitter or fluorescent. This allows you to generate amazing effects.
This image of the composition of a sticker helps illustrate that.
- First, we have a gloss laminate. This protects the sticker from water sunlight and scratching.
- This is your custom print in vibrant colors and incredible detail.
- Then, you can choose the perfect material. Depending on the material, you can create different effects: metallic colors using a holographic material or a stained-glass effect with transparent stickers
- A medium-strength adhesive is then applied, making this sticker perfect for thousands of applications.
- Lastly, we have a thick backing paper that gives your sticker a premium feeling.
- They will destroy your laptop
What happens if you want to remove your laptop stickers? Will they stain your laptop? Will you ever be able to get rid of the residue?
There is absolutely no need for you to worry. The medium-strength adhesive can easily be peeled and will not leave any adhesive residue. And even if, you can easily remove that using alcohol-based cleaners or brake cleaner.
Instead of destroying your laptop, stickers can even protect it. In your bag or backpack, your laptop will experience the occasional bump and scratch and is likely to be exposed to a leaking water bottle. Stickers can help prevent scratches and function as a protective layer.
