Skateboard Stickers Don’t Appear by Magic…
…even though the skaters would like people to think that!
If there’s one demographic that’s open to branding – and cool stickers – it’s teens and people in their early 20s. They love to display their individuality with their clothes and accessories, as well as their hair and, of course, their skating equipment, especially the boards themselves.
Long-lasting, hard-wearing and always visible
And that’s just the skateboards… These boards and their trucks go through a lot whenever they’re in use, and the more dedicated the skater, the more the board goes through.
Skateboard stickers have a long and venerable tradition, having become popular in the 1970s, with skate stores selling bowlfuls of them to enthusiastic young riders (who would occasionally…help themselves to a random selection of decals).
It’s an individual thing
One of the main reasons for skateboarders to decorate their decks is so that they can easily identify their own boards and also their accessories, like their helmets and pads.
Unique decorations also help to tell others a bit about the skater; what they’re into, what their personality is like and what their aesthetic sense is. No-one wants to be exactly like everyone else at the skatepark, so using durable and very sticky stickers is a good way to assert one’s individuality.
It’s also a tribal thing
Having said all that, skaters can also be fiercely tribal, especially if they’re competitive skaters. Teams like to have that sense of cohesion, even if every member has his or her own style, so branded and logo-ed (it’s yet another thing) stickers letting people know exactly who they’re dealing with are very popular indeed. Similarly, skating and scootering festivals all like to send and hand out promotional items to visitors, maybe as part of welcome packs or as little rewards for the younger kids. Stickers can be an important component in these welcome packs, even if they end up on a car or bedroom window rather than a skateboard.
It pays to advertise
As stickers are so popular among younger people and skaters, it makes perfect sense for manufacturers and suppliers of skating equipment, which means elbow and kneepads, helmets and toolkits as well as boards to include one or two in every order. This is probably why most of the UK’s skating suppliers, including SkateHut, do just that. It increases brand awareness and loyalty, and gets novice skaters off to a good start.
A tough hobby needs tough stickers
Not just any sticker is up to the job of embellishing a board or a helmet. Stickers for skaters have to be very durable as they’ll be out in all weathers, UV-proof as that weather occasionally involves sunshine, and highly adhesive to cope with bumps, scrapes and hard handling.
Luckily, Edge Stickers can come up with just the job.
From customised rolls and sticker sheets for individuals, to medium-sized orders for teams and schools right through to campaigns and merch for sellers and manufacturers, we can do it all. We can also do it all in a variety of formats – metallic, laminated or vinyl, our stickers stay put on boards even if the riders take a tumble.
Large orders of sports stickers are best screenprinted, providing the artwork consists of solid spot colours. This may require a further discussion so do please contact us if you are requiring high volumes.
