Anyone know where I can get some custom stickers made to put on some paper bags for a child's birthday party?

Or, if you have a dab hand at creative arts, you can design your own on your computer and then go buy some adhesive backed printer paper and make your own!

Depends actually what you want and how many. If happy with paper, non-transparent stickers (esp. round or rectangular shape), less then 1-2hunderd pcs then it is very cost effective and only slightly tedious. If on transparent substrate you likely need a more pro approach (printer).

Buying iron-on transfer inject paper and printing it yourself not an option?

With regards to this topic, I hope to share my experience..

Im in the decor line doing art murals and stuff now, but back before this I was in the signage industry. And in sign-making, we used a lot of vinyl stickers for the texts and logos (its plotted and stuck on)..

I had a weird request from a client once while in the sign business (I believe was 15 yrs back), she wanted to do some iron-on letters for t-shirts to be used in an event, but at that time in Singapore we are not able to customize t-shirt designs. Its either silkscreening on t-shirt (expensive and long lead time) or get those ready made iron ons (hard to find)..

Out of urgency to solve her issue, and she was a good client of mine, I tried plotting the letters she wanted and stuck them onto the tshirts she brought.

I remember telling her Im not sure if the stickers will drop, but its still better than having nothing at all... so off she went.
The next day she came back and told me the letters stayed and from then on we stuck vinyl stickers onto our flyer distributors, for our exhibition tshirts and all.

The good thing is its cheap, its fast, you can customize whatever texts and logos in whatever size and color you want and most importantly you can just peel it off after your event and retain your t-shirts.
It can stay for at least 5 days to a week.

I don't do them now, but you can easily find lots of shops in Bras Basah that does.

Hope it helps..
