    What is a reasonable price to pay for these things now days? Say an order or 50 or 100?

    What's anyone's experience in this area?

    I'm not affiliated, just a long time user (10 years +) and hope I'm not breaking forum rules, but I've always been happy with the stickers I've gotten from contagious graphics. (I can't remember where they're located, always dealt with them online). They're weather proof, hold up extremely well, and have any size/shape imaginable.
    The price really depends on number of colors used, size, and obviously if you want a custom shape the price goes up - but there's a large selection of stock shapes - circle, oval, square, and rectangles to choose from.
    I think my last order was 500 black & red on white vinyl, medium sized square stickers for my band, and it was around $60 or so. Of course the larger the order, the cheaper it is by the piece...
    That's just my experience, I'm sure there's a lot of great vendors out there, I just have stuck w/ them cuz why fix what isn't broken?
    I think cost wise you'll probably be better going with a slightly larger order.
    50 or 100 may end up being negligibly cheaper than a couple hundred, since I think the bulk of the price is for the setup, not the actual materials...
    Hope that helps..

    Well ok that sounds more like it. I am finding sellers who want 275.00 per sticker and that is even ordering 100 of them. I have not ordered because that sounded high to me. 500 stickers for 60 bucks? Take my money!

    stickermule.com does small runs of 50, and prices decrease with increased counts. Price also depends on sticker size. A 50 count run of 4x4 square stickers is $74, for example. The sticker quality is high, however.

    Not sure if they ship elsewhere, but we just ordered 1000 (900 more than we really needed) 4" x 4" for $119 CAD from StickerCanada. Quality is actually better than I expected for what we paid.

    It shipped from China so it looks like head office / logistics is in Canada.

    I was quoted 120.00 for 500 7 1/2 X 3 inch stickers. I guess that is not bad.

    Something I'm sure you've noticed is that the unit price is way higher for small runs. You're pretty much paying to set the machine up; once it's on you may as well run 500 as 50.

    500 to me is a huge run LOL
  9. I was going to say this too. I know when we had T-shirts done, they told us the first run would cost more for setup/tweaking designs etc but after that other runs would be cheaper because that wouldnt have to be done again. The design for out shirt was originally done by a girl at the bar who was really great with art. We then had to have that done again by a graphic artist (who was my cousin actually) so it could be used by the printer (I think she had to re draw it digitally or something, I really dont understand all of this stuff).. That was the expensive part of it to start. We did ours locally instead of online, so I'm sure that made it a little more expensive too, but I like to go local if I can.

    All this to say, since the setup fees are going to be kinda big to start, I'd do a large run to begin with. 500 stickers will probably go faster than you think. I handed out 300 can huggers from work in about a minute and a half once. Once you start, everybody wants one. But I would think that once that is done for the stickers, you wouldnt have to do it for anything else you wanted to use it on.
