Do Redbubble Stickers Stay on Water Bottles & Hydro Flasks? (How I Personalized My Water Bottle & Hydro Flask & Tested Redbubble’s High-Quality, Durable, Water-Resistant Vinyl Stickers)

Redbubble claims that their stickers are made from durable, water-resistant vinyl.

Can the stickers get wet?

The stickers are water-resistant so they can be used on products that get wet occasionally such as drink bottles, bumpers, cars, helmets, skateboards, and windows. – Redbubble,

So, for this post, I decided I wanted to test if you can actually stick your favorite Redbubble stickers on your water bottle without:

  1. ruining the stickers,
  2. ruining your water bottles,
  3. or having your stickers peel off and looking like a mess.

For this test, I got a cheap, plastic water bottle and one of those popular hydro flasks (Amazon). I decided to test if Redbubble stickers would stick to my water bottles for at least several months (I’ll want new sticker designs by then anyway).

I stuck all three types of Redbubble stickers, which included their original matte stickers and the new transparent and glossy stickers, on my hydro flask and a generic plastic water bottle.

So what happened after 7 months of using my hydro flask and water bottle? Keep reading to find out!

Please Note: Redbubble says their stickers are not dishwasher safe so I hand-washed the bottles 2-4 times a week.

Love these. They stick on, and stay on, even on mugs and items that are exposed to lots of water and hands – Malin on March 12, 2021 [RES]

I ordered stickers from Redbubble and from another company. Redbubble’s stickers actually stick to our water bottles and don’t come off when I [wash] the bottles. We weren’t so lucky with the other company. It’s a good product and my kids loved the images. – Amy C. on October 26, 2020 [RES]

How Long Did the Redbubble Stickers Last on My Water Bottles?

After 7 months of hand-washing my hydro flask and my other no-name water bottle, the stickers are still stuck on there real good!

They still stuck extremely well even with a lot of condensation on my cheap water bottle! So, even though they might not be 100% waterproof, they’re definitely made from high-quality water-resistant vinyl.

Once, I put both my hydro flask and water bottle completely underwater for over 30 minutes and it still didn’t ruin the stickers at all.

After 7 months, there was no peeling or curling of the stickers whatsoever. The images also stayed sharp and the colors were still vibrant. They look just like the first day I got them. I’m extremely impressed!

LOVEDDD THE STICKERS!! Put it on my hydro! So glad it didn’t peel when I washed my bottle :) 10/10! – Lara D. on Jan 16, 2020 [RES]

Durable and long lasting stickers! My 12 y/o daughter put them on her water bottle which gets ALOT of use and is washed frequently, and the stickers are holding up great! Still look brand new! – Jennifer K. on Jun 5, 2019 [RES]

These [Redbubble Stickers] are surprisingly durable, I’ve not any issues with peeling or water. Would buy again! – Elizabeth B. on Dec 22, 2020 [RES]

Do Redbubble Stickers Come Off of Water Bottles & Hydro Flasks?

One of my biggest concerns was if the stickers would actually come off my water bottle and hydro flask after having them on there for 7 months.

The answer?

Yes, the stickers do come off water bottles but only if you want them to come off.

You actually have to peel them off yourself (they won’t just fall off). The best part is that you can peel them off in one piece and you can stick them on parchment paper to reuse the sticker again later.

I ordered a sticker and the quality is amazing. Great product. I stuck it to my water bottle and it has not come off, even though I wash it (hand wash). – Becca B. on Jun 17, 2021 [RES]

I absolutely love the glossy stickers! I put them on my hydro flask and they haven’t fallen off or budged once, even through washing the bottle. They come exactly as advertised! Would definitely buy more in the future. – Amanda O. on August 14, 2019 [RES]

The stickers I ordered were very good quality, they are able to be peeled off without being damaged, I have them on my laptop and my [hydro flask]! The colours are very accurate and vibrant! Thanks Redbubble! – Jorja H. on Jul 13, 2019 [RES]

Overview: Are Redbubble Stickers Good for Water Bottles?

Redbubble’s vinyl stickers stay amazingly well on water bottles and I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

They’re durable, reusable, water-resistant, and super unique. What’s not to love?

But which Redbubble stickers are best when it comes to sticking them on water bottles? Should you choose matte, transparent or glossy stickers?

A few years ago, Redbubble used to only have matte stickers that had 1/8th of an inch white border around each design. So, I often ended up cutting the white borders off my stickers. Plus, I find the matte stickers had a “vintage” look to them.

But now they have new transparent stickers that I just love for my water bottles! They still have 1/8th of an inch border, but it’s transparent!

And, sometimes when I do want a white border (some designs are just best with a border, like when the stick is only text), then I’ll pick the glossy stickers. I find that both the transparent and glossy stickers are more contemporary looking than the matte stickers.

Another great thing about transparent and glossy stickers is that they’re often the best choice when you want to put stickers on anything made with glass or plastic because they have a sheen to them.

Always loved my red bubble stickers for my water bottle, but would be disappointed that the white background seemed to hide the color of my water bottle and take away from the sticker. Transparent or BUST for life! – Sarah K. on Jul 31, 2019 [RES]
