Where To Put Stickers
Below you will find a list of all different types of unique places where you can put stickers. One thing to remember is to never put stickers on public property. That could be considered vandalism and you might get in trouble with the law.
Additionally, don’t put stickers on someone else’s private or personal property either without permission.
You should only put stickers on your own personal property. Our legal people asked me to say that, so I did, not let me share with you a funny story. I have a great friend that I grew up with who now lives in Kentucky and married a dude that bleeds blue.
Anyway last summer I spent a weekend with them. Before I left I put a Smokey Vols stick on her car. I learned later that she drove around with it on her car for a week until one of her co-workers finally asked "When did you become a Vols football fan?". That is a joke we will remember and talk about the rest of our lives.
I have to admit she didnt think it was too funny at the time. So I guess my point is there is always places you can dsiplay your UT decals and sticker, but if you are lookig for ideas, here they are.
Computer monitors (on the backside obviously!)
Desktop computer towers
Video game systems
Portable battery packs
External hard drives
Pantry storage jars
First aid kit
Electric can opener
Kitchen garbage cans
On your locker
Plastic storage bins
Extra large ziploc storage bags
Plastic storage shelves
Plastic storage cabinets
Outdoor Coleman stove
Large water jugs
Sporting duffel bags

If you want to turn your stickers into bumper stickers for cars but you are unsure how they will hold up in the weather, there are fixes for that.
You can use a fixative spray to waterproof your stickers. Take a look at the steps below:
- All you have to do is get a can of fixative and spray your stickers.
- You can spray your stickers in a slow back-and-forth motion with a coating of fixative spray.
- Make sure that you are in a ventilated area so you can avoid breathing in the fumes. Too much exposure to the fumes can be hazardous to your health. It’s also recommended that you wear a mask reduce breathing in fumes.
- Using a spray like this will protect your stickers from fading and help protect them from the weather elements such as snow, rain, and salt. You can buy fixative spray a craft stores.

Another popular place where to put stickers is on your laptop. A lot of people have laptops with stickers.
I am sure that you see this everywhere you go just like I do. I always see people that have laptops with stickers at the airport while I’m sitting at the terminal waiting for my plane to leave.
There are also times when I am sitting in class that I always see stickers on laptops.

There is a right way and a wrong way to put a sticker on a laptop.

- You will need a couple tools and some supplies first off. Be sure to get yourself a cloth and a bottle of rubbing alcohol.
- Put a little bit of alcohol on the cloth.
- Clean the area of your laptop where the sticker will go with the cloth. Be sure to do a light brushing with your cloth over the area. The purpose of this is to clean off all of the dirt and oil from your fingers.
- Once the area has dried you can put your sticker on the laptop.
- Be sure to rub out any air bubbles or pockets that may form once you put the sticker on.
By following these steps, your sticker should have its longest life possible this way on your laptop.
Stickers on a Backpack
Another popular place where to put stickers on is backpacks. I see kids all the time walking to school with backpacks that are covered with stickers.
Backpacks are also a great place if your looking where to put VSCO stickers as well.
Backpacks are a great choice.

How To Put Stickers on a Backpack
A lot of people put stickers on their backpacks. It can be tricky if your backpack is made up of the standard fabric material.
If you try to stick your sticker on the backpack, it’s not going to stay.
However there are some things that you can do to make sure your sticker sticks.
One thing you can do is try upholstery strength glue. This can be purchased at any major department store such as Home Depot or Lowe’s.
Be sure to apply the glue to not just the back of the sticker, but also to the backpack as well.
One of the best things to put stickers on would be surfboards.I am sure some of our readers are surfers, but not many. I certainly am not, but if I love on the beach I probably would be.
People love surfboard stickers!
Waterproof vinyl stickers are a good option for surfboards. There’s nothing more cool than seeing a surfer and his surfboard covered in stickers.
It’s best to try to look for waterproof stickers if you are going to put them on your surfboard. I am seeing a solid black board covered in Vols Stickers. :)
How To Put Stickers on a Surfboard
It can often be difficult to put stickers on surfboards for a couple of reasons such as wax, salt, sand, and water.
All of those things will work against the life of your sticker.
If you want to put vols stickers on your surfboard the best stickers to use are the ones made of vinyl.
- Find a spot on your surfboard where you want your sticker to be. This area should be free of wax before you apply the sticker. It should also be an area where you don’t generally apply wax to the surfboard.
- Next get a pot of boiling water and pour it where you want the sticker to be. This will clean the board and remove all wax and sand that may be on the surfboard. You want to start with a clean surface where you will apply the sticker.
- Then just simply apply the sticker. Make sure all the air bubbles are out when you apply it. A good trick is to use a credit card to smooth the sticker and push the trapped air bubbles out.
You want to give your surfboard approximately eight hours before you go into the water to make sure the sticker is completely dry and the glue has set and you should be good to go.
What To Do With Unused Stickers
One great option where to put unused stickers would be in a sticker scrapbook. There are a lot of different places that sell stickers scrapbooks.
You can often find them on clearance as well as stores like Joanne Fabrics or Michael’s.
Make Vols Christmas Ornaments With Your Unused Stickers
If you are practicing living stingy in your life, making your own ornaments can save you a lot of money. You can buy ornaments that do not have any decals on them. They come in clear and multi-colored styles. Honestly we hope you will shop here for your Vols Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Be sure to clean the exterior of the ornament with rubbing alcohol where you will apply the sticker to.
One tip to making the sticker stick easier is start in the center when you apply it to the ornament. Next, work your way out from the center pushing out all the air bubbles.
By following that process, you won’t get any creases or swirls underneath the sticker. Making your own Christmas ornaments is not only a great tip, but also a great holiday item to decorate with stickers.

Simply turn your stickers into magnets. Then all you have to do is just take the magnet and apply it to your whiteboard.
Once the stickers are magnetized, you can move them around easily on the whiteboard.
You can rearrange your stickers and put them in all types of different locations and groupings. This is a really fun project to do and a great way to decorate your room.
It’s also a great activity to do with your family.
Make Labels with Stickers
You can also make free address labels with leftover stickers.
A lot of people make their own mailing labels with customized stickers.
Make a Sticker Coffee Table
When I was in college I remember seeing the craziest coffee tables ever in my life! All of them were crafted out of different types of materials. Some were made out of recyclable materials, while others were made out of metal and empty bottles.
A great thing to do with your stickers is put them underneath a piece of glass and make a coffee table with them.
- Figure out the size of the coffee table you want. You can either get a nice piece of particleboard (maybe 1/2 or 3/4 inch thick) or even a piece of plexiglass and put your stickers on that.
- Next get a piece of glass to cover the entire particleboard or plexiglass. That will be what you will set your remotes, drinks, nachos, cosmos, and everything else on.
- However you construct the coffee table you want to make sure that the glass won’t slide off of the particleboard.
You can find many plans online to help you construct what type of coffee table you want.
There are so many great places where to put stickers. From stickers on laptops, bumper stickers, car stickers, surfboard stickers, and even stickers on backpacks, the sky’s the limit when it comes to what to do with stickers.
