What kinds of businesses use stickers and labels?

No matter what kind of business you work in, printed labels could play a part in whatever it is you do.

From marketing to brand recognition to simply making those you work with feel valued and appreciated, printed labels and coloured stickers can be surprisingly versatile.

Here are just a few of the different types of businesses, services and sectors that use stickers and labels on a regular basis:

Schools & Nurseries

Let’s be honest – no school or nursery setting would be the same without a whole bunch of colourful stickers all over the place. Stickers can be personalised with a school name and logo, or picked up blank to then be edited and used for a wide variety of reasons. Recognising good work, inspiring creativity in kids and generally brightening up classrooms.

Stickers can be a surprisingly effective incentive, when looking to motivate kids to give it their all in an educational setting.


The healthcare industry has made good use of all different types of stickers for generations. It may be a relatively small gesture, but giving kids a ‘Top Patient’ sticker after a visit to a doctor or dentist can make the whole experience significantly more rewarding.

There’s also limitless marketing and branding potential for those running private practices, who can use branded and personalised stickers to advertise their businesses. Stickers are also routinely used to brighten up kids’ waiting areas, paediatricians’ offices, kids’ wards in hospitals and so on.

Public Buildings and Spaces

Of course, it’s not all exclusively fun and games where stickers and labels are concerned. They’re also a popular choice and an important medium for local councils to be used in public buildings and spaces. Emergency exit signs, directions, warnings and important information – all displayed colourfully and prominently using affordable stickers.

Waterproof stickers in particular can be fantastic as a form of affordable and eye-catching outdoor signage, which is both comprehensively weatherproof and easy to apply/remove.

Building and Construction

The highest quality waterproof labels can be just the thing for use in heavy duty outdoor environments where conditions are demanding.  From electricians to builders to security offices and more, quality labels can be used to convey almost any information and can be positioned just about anywhere.

Warnings of electrical currents, directing traffic, confirmation of CCTV coverage in the area – all possible with nothing more than a bunch of affordable stickers.
