UPrinting Custom Stickers/Labels {Review}

My husband and I have a longstanding joke that his mother could find a card for any occasion. Looking for a Valentine's Day card? Okay, anyone can find those. Looking for a Valentine's Day card for your son and daughter-in-law? A little more difficult, but still doable. Looking for a Valentine's Day card for your son and daughter-in-law that celebrates their 2.5-year-old daughter becoming a big sister two months earlier? I'm pretty sure we received it last year. How does she do it?

I, on the other hand, tend to stick with the basics. Everyone appreciates a handwritten card once in a while, it's a great way to brighten someone's day, but when it comes to including one with a gift, do they get overshadowed a little bit? Particularly when we're headed to a child's birthday party, it seems to work easier for us to just put on a sticker to let the recipient know the present is from us and leave it at that.

Fortunately, that's what we've been doing ever since we received 250 custom stickers/labels from

If you think that an online printing company is only for large or small business printing, you haven't checked out the wide variety of products that UPrinting offers. With everything from window clings to vinyl banners to the ability to make canvas prints from digital photos, UPrinting has something for everyone.

After hosting a UPrinting giveaway for their innovative stickers/labels, I was eager to see how the finished product would turn out. The creation process was easy, beginning with choosing between multiple sizes and then adding my own text, image or logo. I decided to leave my design as-is, but I appreciated the convenience of being able to use UPrinting's tools (such as text, clipart or shapes) to come up with an idea right on their website.

After placing my order, it wasn't long before these stickers arrived and we could put them to use. I immediately noticed the crisp, clean lines and the vibrant colors that were exactly as I had designed. I also noticed just how easy these stickers are to peel off of the backing - something that makes a difference when we're wrapping a gift and running out the door at the last minute.

For all of your online printing needs, is there to help. In fact, having worked with them on multiple reviews, I've spoken with their customer service a few times in the past and have always had all of my questions promptly answered. I think the hardest part about ordering from is deciding which item to choose next!

How about you? Do you prefer cards with your presents or do you like the idea of gift stickers?

I love things like this. I have ordered from UPrinting a couple of times and always love what I get. I really don't care if it is a gift sticker or card, just bring the gifts. LOL
