A lot of people use stickers nowadays even if they claim that they don’t. Stickers are always fun and useful regardless of how old you are. When you’re in need of new stickers, which you eventually will be, there are two choices in front of you: print them at home or order them online. 

There are amazing online designers like Stickerapp, for example, who make amazing stickers. But then again, if you can make them at home, why would you order online, to begin with? 

This seems like an easy enough choice but it isn’t. There are a couple of factors you must consider before you decide. Therefore, which one is better, printing stickers at home or ordering them online? Let’s find out. 

Do you have time to print stickers all day?

If you have enough free time to dedicate yourself to printing stickers all day then by all means do so. However, you must also have the right paper or you’ll have to make glue for stickers yourself. 

Moreover, you’ll have to cut each sticker by hand and there could be many of them. Last but not least, is your printer complaining that it doesn’t have enough magenta to print yellow or orange? 

Frustrating, isn't it? Printing stickers at home is all fun and games until it isn’t. Ordering online means you get finished and processed products ready to go delivered to your doorstep. 

Is it worth it?

If you have the time and skills to make stickers at home you can save money on ordering online. If not, you can still order online and print stickers yourself at home. This will also cut the price on delivery fees and such. 

Then again, did you really save money? Imagine this, your computer is turned on and your printer has been spouting stickers all day. How much will that reflect on your electricity bill? 

Cleaning up the mess

You’ve printed, cut and glued stickers at your home. Your back hurts, your hands are sore and your printer is probably dead. Now there’s tons of leftover paper, glue and whatnot all around you. It’s time to clean up the mess, and let’s be honest here, no one wants additional chores if they can avoid it, to begin with. If there ever was a good reason to order online it’s to avoid cleaning up after printing at home and you know it.

Closing Words

Ordering stickers online beats printing at home anyday. This is especially true if you can’t dedicate a whole day or two to print stickers at home and clean up afterwards.
