How to get the best sticker design

Most people are familiar with the concept of hiring a freelance designer. But this isn’t the only way of getting a custom sticker designed. Anyone who wants a sticker designed should consider hosting a sticker design contest.

With a design contest, freelancers come to you with their ideas and you get to choose the one you like best. Here’s how it works: you write a brief describing what you’re looking for, then designers from all over the world submit concepts based on your brief. Once you’ve seen all the entries, you give the designers feedback to hone the designs and ultimately, choose the design that sticks with you. If lots of ideas and seeing a variety of different design styles are important to you, we recommend a design contest.

How did we choose these as the top sticker designers?

Sticker design is important to get right because stickers are so easy to forget. You don’t want your sticker to meet the same fate as all the stickers you’ve peeled off apples or peeled off your shirt after you voted. A thoughtfully designed sticker is memorable. Those are the stickers that make it onto the backs of laptop screens. When we made our top picks for sticker designers, here’s what we looked at:

1. Design quality

When a new designer joins 99designs, an expert from our team goes through their portfolio to see the conceptual thought, skills and understanding of design principles in their work. The designer is then assigned one of three levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

Each designer’s level is displayed on their portfolio so you can see if you’re working with someone with lots of experience and design chops, or someone just starting out.

2. Sticker design experience

An effective sticker commands attention and says a lot in a small amount of space. If a poster is a visual short story, a sticker is a visual tweet. When we chose our top sticker designers, we specifically vetted each designer to make sure they have sufficient sticker design experience.

3. Professionalism

Of course you want someone with design skills, but you also need a sticker designer who communicates with you throughout the process, delivers on time and is generally pleasant to work with. We took each designer’s past customer experiences into account to make sure all the designers we recommend are professionals in service as well as design.

Are you ready to hire a talented freelance sticker designer?

A well-designed sticker sticks your brand in people’s minds. A talented sticker designer can work your logo and color scheme into a sticker that’s personalized and fun, rather than just another forgettable piece of swag.
