Critical Information

We want to help you sell lots of Wood Stickers!  Here’s all of the most important stuff you need to know.  These are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get from distributors, so please start here.

 

Product Features

Wood Types

We offer Wood Stickers in two different wood veneers: maple is a lighter blonde wood and cherry is a deep rich red color.  There is no difference in price between the two.  We suggest a 50/50 split on your order.

Made in the USA

Wood Stickers are proudly fabricated, packaged and shipped from our production facility in Denver, Colorado.

Eco-Friendly

Wood Stickers are made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified sustainable tree farms.  The product is fully biodegradable and most of our packaging and shipping materials are made from recycled post-consumer waste.

Flexible

The wood veneer is thin enough to bend and flex around water bottles, travel mugs, or any other curved surface.

Dishwasher Safe

Yes really!  We spray our product with a proprietary clear coat that leaves a natural wood feel but also makes Wood Stickers moisture resistant.  So go ahead and stick them on drinkware for a very cool look.  We recommend the top rack.

Weather Resistant

Our clear coat spray also protects against UV damage, so this product will work anywhere outdoors – even on cars!

Strong Adhesive

We use a high quality 3M adhesive backer for Wood Stickers.  It’s right in the sweet spot: won’t peel off on it’s own, but is easily removed without marring painted surfaces or leaving a residue.

 

Common Questions

 

"What is the minimum order?"

The minimum order quantity is 50 total Wood Stickers.

"Can I Get a Price Quote?"

Our prices and bulk price breaks are clearly laid out on the Distributor Info Sheet.  Unfortunately we cannot discount unless the listed quantities are aligned.

"Can I get custom packaging?"

We never say never regarding custom packaging, however in most cases it is not cost efficient or timely.  We review each custom packaging request individually.  Unless you’re planning to order very large quantities and have plenty of lead time for us to design and print the new custom packages, this is probably not a great option.

"What is the size of the product?"

Each sticker’s dimensions will vary a bit depending on the shape, but typically it will be about three inches wide.  We standardize the size so we can standardize your net price.  When we send your virtuals, we’ll have exact dimensions for you.

We strongly suggest you sell the standard sizing to your end users – it fits in the packaging and it’s also “cell phone friendly” which is where wood stickers end up most often.  If they insist on significantly larger stickers, please let us know so we can work up custom pricing.

"How soon can we get those?"

We always appreciate plenty of heads up, but if you’re in a rush we can fabricate, package and ship out any order under 1,000qty within three to five business days.  Generally we try our best to work with your deadlines – just let us know when you need them by.  We’ll look at the production calendar and figure it out!

"Will you put them on ______?"

Typically no, but we review these requests on a case-by-case basis.  The biggest challenge for us is sourcing whatever product you want us to put the wood stickers on… so if you can get those travel mugs, phone cases, etc. over to us, your chances are looking better.

"Can you ship international?"

Canada is no problem.  Everywhere else, let’s chat and we’ll figure it out.

Art Requirements

Having the right digital art file to work with makes all the difference.  Wherever possible, please send art as one color vector files (a vectorized PDF, .ai or .eps – any of those work).  If a vector file is not available, please send us the highest resolution image (.jpg) you’ve got and we’ll take a look.

Spec Samples

Once we’ve received the artwork and have created a virtual, if you would like spec samples, we’ll send you a pack of 8 for just $20.  This fee is refunded if you place an order for the design in question.  Please allow 1 to 2 business days for us to get your spec samples fabricated, packaged and shipped.  Thanks.

 

Key Selling Points

Close that deal with these key selling points

More Impressions

Sure, you could get a lot more vinyl stickers for the same price… but are you just buying garbage?  Our research shows that nearly 90% of all branded vinyl stickers never get used.  They either end up in the dreaded “sticker drawer” or worse, go straight to a landfill.  Wood Stickers are unique, and they get stuck on something which means more brand impressions.  If you compare the actual cost per impression, Wood Stickers are quite the bargain.

A Unique New Product

And once that Wood Sticker is on the phone, water bottle, laptop, etc. it not only increases brand impressions but also sparks a conversation about the brand due to the uniqueness of the product.  Brands get to align themselves with an innovative new thing and piggyback on the excitement the product itself generates.  For example…

“Hey that’s really cool, is it real wood?”

“Yeah come check it out!  I got it from XYZ Corp at a conference last week.”

It happens all the time.  Hand out branded wood stickers as a promotional item and watch the buzz start to swirl.  Or give them to your loyal employees and see how they proudly show off their new token of team spirit.  Wood Stickers will turn heads, directing more awareness and interest to your brand.

Alternative to Imprinting

Tired of the same old options for imprinting on your promotional products?  Put a Wood Sticker on it instead!  They’re flexible and dishwasher safe, meaning it’s a great option for drinkware imprinting.  It’s also a great addition to notebooks and binders.  We’ve even done Wood Stickers as the imprinting for employee recognition awards.  You’re only limited by our own imagination.

Fast Lead Times

We fabricate every Wood Sticker order as they come in, but we employ Lean Manufacturing Methodologies to keep fabrication lead times as low as they can possibly be.  For every order under 1,000qty we fabricate, finish, package and ship your Wood Stickers within 3 to 5 business days upon receiving the order.  For larger quantities we have a very flexible and rapidly scalable production capacity.  So if you’re in a pinch and need something quick, let us know and we’ll make it happen for you.

Order Entry Do’s and Don’ts

  • Every order must be in writing and sent via email to promo@woodstickers.com so that we have a record of when it was sent as well as any critical details related to the order.  Phone orders will be instructed to send us an email before we proceed with fabrication.
  • If there is a tight turn on the order, please make sure you’ve confirmed with us before sending over the request.  Discussing a rush order after the PO has already been sent just slows down the whole process when we need to be hustling out your order.
  • If you’ve previously ordered a Sample Pack or Spec Samples, please indicate that so we can be sure to rebate the cost.  We have measures in place to check for that, but if you know you got samples that led to a sale we always appreciate a heads up.
  • Always be sure to indicate what wood type you want us to fabricate with.  Your options are all cherry, all maple or a 50/50 split (there is no difference in cost).  If no preference is stated, we default to a 50/50 split.
  • If you have any other questions regarding placing an order, please don’t hesitate to call us at 303.997.4961
