In this article, we will review some of the different sticker options your business can leverage on your packaging as well as dive into some creative ways to use stickers to promote your business and brand.

Making Your Business Stick

In 1917, the founders of Hallmark, the Hall brothers, changed the retail industry by accident. Instead of using conventional gift-wrapping paper, they used decorative French paper. This trend quickly spread like wildfire. Then, in 1919, Hallmark began selling the wrapping paper we still use today.

Through the years, Hallmark also began using stickers with their gift wrapping. Stickers than evolved from gift wrapping to marketing. Over the years, stickers have improved greatly, and are now available in different formats, which we will review in detail below.
