Absolutely. We offer custom eco-friendly stickers which are a great alternative to traditional plastic stickers. These beauties are not only durable, but compostable.
Read on to learn more about what they are made of and how to get your hands on these custom stickers.
What are eco-friendly stickers?
Eco-friendly stickers are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp from managed plantations. This makes these stickers completely compostable. You can simply put them in your food waste bin at home, where they will decompose within 12 weeks.
However, eco-friendly stickers still feel and behave like the plastic-based stickers you are probably familiar with. We laminate them with a protective coating that makes them water resistant, tear proof and highlight the print quality with a glossy shine. Through this, you can use these eco-friendly stickers outdoors for up to six months.

Are vinyl stickers eco-friendly?
When you think of traditional stickers, you will most likely think of vinyl stickers. Vinyl stickers are made from plastic, which means they are not compostable.
However, there are different forms of plastic. We use polypropylene for our vinyl stickers, which are dishwasher safe, can be used outdoors for up to three years and - the best part - is recycle compatible.
So while our classic vinyl sticker option is not biodegradable, it can at least be recycled. All you have to do is put them in your recycling bin to give them a new life.
How can I order eco-friendly custom stickers?
First, decide which material you are after; eco-friendly white or eco-friendly clear. Then think about how you want your stickers to be delivered: individually cut or on sticker sheets?
We recommend getting labels printed onto stickers sheets if you are using them to brand your products. Individually cut stickers are ideal for handing them out to customers or selling them.
If you are after stickers, head over to the eco-friendly stickers page for the white option or the eco-friendly clear stickers page for the clear option. For labels, check out the eco-friendly sheet labels page or the eco-friendly clear sheet labels page.
