Cool laptop stickers, otherwise known as laptop decals, are an excellent and relatively inexpensive way to add some colour, style and personality to your notebook. The unused space on the front lid is a great canvas for making a statement or displaying interests. Some people also decorate the space around their laptop’s trackpad. Aside from being decorative, stickers can be an excellent way to promote your business and get brand exposure.
If you’re considering putting some stickers on your laptop, here are some things you should know.
Are laptop stickers considered unprofessional?
Many people are still hesitant to put stickers on their laptops for fear of appearing unprofessional. We recommend not putting any on a work laptop owned by the company you work for. If you use your own laptop for work, there are a few things to consider before you slap a sticker on it.
Before you start decorating your laptop, think about your workplace and clients. You don’t want to come across as immature or your laptop to negatively impact your image. If you work for a company, it is best to check if your colleagues have stickers on their laptops. More progressive work environments usually don’t care about such things, and you are free to do whatever you want with your laptop. Take also into consideration who your clients are and whether they can see your laptop. You don’t want your clients to be put off by a decorated device and not take you seriously.
What are the best stickers for laptops?
Vinyl stickers are ideal for a laptop. They are made of durable but easily removable printable white or transparent vinyl, and they simply look great! Clear vinyl stickers are particularly popular because they loom over any material your laptop might be made of.
You can also buy polyester and paper stickers, which are less expensive but also less durable than vinyl.
Sticker design trends
Stickers have their roots in branding, where they act as tiny billboards all around us. Even a simple logo can be transformed into an awesome sticker and increase brand connection with its target audience. That’s why many companies add cool branded stickers to their marketing mix. However, stickers are now more than just a marketing tool; they are works of art and an important part of pop culture. Here are some popular types of stickers that are not related to a specific brand and are used simply because they make people happy:
- pop culture characters portrayed as babies
- anything related to popular television shows
- anything related to popular films
- inspirational sayings
- dogs and cats
- baby animals
- city skylines
How to apply stickers
It’s not really rocket science, but there are some things you can do so your stickers apply smoothly. First and foremost, clean the surface of your laptop with rubbing alcohol or soap and water to ensure that it’s squeaky clean. Let it dry. Next, slowly peel your sticker away from the backing to avoid damaging it. Carefully place the sticker on the desired surface. You can use a credit card to rub across the sticker (from the center to the edges) to make sure there are no air bubbles or wrinkles in the vinyl. Finally, if there is transfer tape on top of the sticker, gently peel it off.
There’s no right or wrong way to arrange stickers on your laptop, but you should try to keep it from becoming a jumbled mess. Choose a few stickers in colours, shapes and sizes that you believe will work well together to create a natural-looking collage. Mac users can get creative with the Apple logo and place stickers around it, incorporating it into their artwork. Be creative, but don’t go overboard.
How to remove an old sticker from a laptop
Try to peel off as much of the sticker as you can in one shot. Then, using rubbing alcohol, acetone or a mixture of vinegar and water, gently peel away the remains. Make sure that neither of the solvents gets into the holes in your laptop. Do not use WD-40, oils or petroleum-based products on your laptop. If you try to remove the stickers too aggressively, you may end up damaging your laptop.
