Choosing stickers for clubs is probably something you think is a simple deal. You get together with the other folks in your car club, book club or bean of the month club, and you toss around some design ideas. Everyone agrees on the design, except that guy that never agrees on anything, and you are good to go. Right?

Well, maybe not.

Your club may be small-time. You may not think it is going anywhere, and none of you think that choosing a sticker design for your club is important. You just want something that is one-of-a-kind and looks good. Let me encourage you to revisit that way of thinking.

What if your “metal buttons bought at yard sales club” explodes in popularity? It eventually includes members around the globe and becomes a big deal. If you rushed through the design process, your logo, which is now everywhere, might be a rather lame, watered-down representation of your group and its members.

Tips for Choosing Stickers for Clubs

That’s why you should follow these simple tips for designing logos or club stickers.

  • Do your homework. Go online and check out the logos for some other cheese-of-the-month clubs. This ensures you come up with an original design, one that isn’t too cheesy. Sorry, had to be done.
  • Be imaginative. Put on your thinking cap and get creative. You need more than just a picture of a book to make a really awesome logo for a reading club.
  • Don’t go with a stock image. There are tons of websites that offer stock images. They are inexpensive and even free a lot of the time, but they are not very original nor creative.
  • Consider hiring a professional designer. When choosing a sticker design or logo for your club, you may want to consider hiring a graphic designer. If you don’t feel like spending that money, we’d be happy to sit down with you and help you come up with a design that you and your members love.

I know what you’re thinking. Choosing stickers for clubs that you belong to should not be this involved. Just remember that you’re going to have to live with your logo or design for a long time. Hopefully, you and your club members stay together for decades. Whatever the design you go with, it is going to represent you, your fellow club members, and all that your organization stands for.
