Question of the day: When do stickers expire?
We've found that most of our customer tend to stick their stickers right away, but we understand that not everyone might not. Whether they want to buy in batches or gift a sticker for future use, this question might be something they would consider.
Our sticker are made of vinyl, able to withstand most (if not all) weather conditions and remain sticky for years.
However, like most things, stickers don't last forever.
While they don't exactly expire like food, stickers can degrade over time, causing them to lose their adhesive properties and overall quality.
So, when do stickers expire? The answer is that it depends on various factors, such as the type of sticker, how it's stored, and the conditions it's exposed to. Here are some key things to keep in mind:
Adhesive properties: Over time, the adhesive on a sticker can break down, causing it to lose its stickiness. This can be exacerbated by exposure to heat or humidity, as well as by the type of adhesive used. Some adhesives are designed to be more long-lasting than others, so it's important to consider the quality of the adhesive when determining a sticker's lifespan.
Material quality: The material of a sticker can also affect its lifespan. Paper-based stickers, for example, are more prone to fading and peeling than vinyl or plastic stickers. Similarly, stickers with delicate designs or intricate cuts may not last as long as simpler designs with thicker lines. The sticker we use for our products are vinyl, which is a strong durable material.
Storage conditions: Proper storage can help extend the lifespan of a sticker. Stickers should be kept in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and other sources of heat or moisture. This can help prevent the adhesive from breaking down and the material from fading or degrading.
Overall, while stickers don't necessarily have an expiration date, they can degrade over time, causing them to lose their adhesive properties and overall quality. Factors like adhesive quality, material quality, and storage conditions can all affect a sticker's lifespan. To keep your stickers looking their best, it's important to store them properly and keep an eye out for signs of degradation, such as peeling or fading.
