Printing Lead Times
Keep in mind the lead time you need for your sticker order to arrive so you have time to assemble them. Most vendors support rush orders, but we suggest placing your order two weeks before your event to keep shipping costs at a minimum. This should get you your stamps about one week prior to your event.
Applying stamp stickers is a simple process. Here are a few tips to get great results.
Start by only opening one box of stamps at a time to avoid mixing up serial numbers between boxes.
Sticker Giant uses a crack and peel backing that makes removing the backing and aligning the sticker easier.
Lightly bend the sticker and then remove one half of the backing material.
Align the sticker in the handle’s sticker well in your preferred orientation and attach the edge of the sticker.
Once the stamp is aligned correctly you can remove the remainder of the backing material and press the sticker into place.
