Are Redbubble Stickers Good Quality?

If you’re looking for unique stickers designed by independent artists worldwide, then your hunt is over!

Since Redbubble stickers are getting increasingly popular every year, I thought I would write a post summarizing what 440 customers had to say about them (plus I’ve bought over 200 Redbubble stickers over the years).

From the quality of the design to the quality of the material, everything you need to know about Redbubble’s stickers is right here!

Difference Between Matte, Transparent & Glossy Stickers

Once upon a time, Redbubble only had stickers that had 1/8th of an inch white border around each design. And all the stickers were matt (they weren’t glossy at all).

They were different times, where if you didn’t want those white borders, you had to cut them with scissors. And it was OK. I loved them anyway, white borders and all.


I’m happy to announce Redbubble has NEW glossy and transparent stickers!

The original type of stickers are still available and they’re now called matte stickers.

The matte stickers have a white border around the design and have no glossiness to them. These are the best stickers to get if you’re looking for a vintage look.

The stickers are fabulous. I have ordered all different types of them from the glossy, matte and transparent. The matte stickers are my favorite. They are all thick and long lasting. I have used them on the back of my phone and the sticker/art lasted years before I decided to change it out. I love buying extra to give as gifts.

These stickers are adorable! I purchased the matte and am very happy with how sleek it is. It has so much color and charm, that I can’t help but smile when I see it.

Nicole M. on Mar 14, 2021 [RES]

The two new kinds of stickers are called transparent and glossy. Both types of stickers have a nice glossy, modern look to them. But what’s the difference between the two?

Transparent stickers have a 1/8 inch see-through border around each design so they’re perfect for sticking on glass and plastic.

On the other hand, glossy stickers have a 1/8 inch white border around each design.

I tend to buy transparent stickers, except if the sticker is mostly text. In that case, I’ll choose the glossy stickers because you can see the letters much better with a white border around them.

Color was good and design was great. It is transparent like it should have been but didn’t show up on my truck window like i pictured it would.

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]

This sticker is amazing!! It fits so beautifully on my wall and the transparent sticker makes it look like it’s painted on! Came quickly, safely, and exactly as described. Would definitely buy again!

Quality: Are Redbubble Stickers Good?

Yes. Redbubble stickers are definitely good-quality. I would actually say they’re HIGH-quality!

The designs have nice, clean lines, and the colors are amazingly vibrant. And all the stickers are made with good quality vinyl that stays in good condition over time with minimal fading.

High quality stickers that I received. Beautiful detail which made my heart happy to place them on my laptop. Will definitely be buying more stickers from here in the future :)

Iona M. on Apr 24, 2021 [RES]

Perfect printing and image quality. Thick and good quality sticker – perfectly clear. High definition in the details. Loved it. Exactly what I was hoping for.

Jen D. on Jan 7, 2021 [RES]

I really love the stickers on this site! I’ve purchased several in the past, and I’ve always been extremely satisfied with the quality and image.

Product Quality: How Durable Are Redbubble Stickers?

Yes! Redbubble stickers are extremely durable.

I’ve had 11 of them on my laptop for almost 3 years and they still haven’t faded or peeled off at all (and I use my laptop constantly). Plus, the ones on my water bottle look just like the first day I got them!

Two thumbs up for durability!

Much better than expected. The material they use is sturdy and looks great. They won’t ever fade. So glad I gave them a try.

Renee on Jun 15, 2021 [RES]

Love them! Nice thick paper so they are strong. Good quality. Great colors, look just like they’re supposed to!

Laura M. on Mar 12, 2021 [RES]

These are surprisingly durable, I’ve not any issues with peeling or water. Would buy again!

Elizabeth B. on Dec 22, 2020 [RES]

Great product! Just as beautiful as they were pictured to be, and well made from a very durable material. Looks great on my car & laptop, both are wearing well.

Courtney on May 13, 2019 [RES]

Product Quality: Are Redbubble Stickers Reusable?

Yes. Redbubble stickers are reusable, but there’s something you must know…

Some people reported that they couldn’t take the stickers off to re-stick them on another surface. This greatly depended on the type of surface they put them on.

For example, if you stick them on a rubberized laptop case or a water bottle, they’ll easily peel off and you’ll be able to re-stick them to another surface. But if you stick them on something like paper or an unpainted wood surface, they will really be stuck on there and harder to peel off.

i love my stickers!! i put them on my computer case! they make it more personalized. i had to move my squirrel sticker after i placed it wrong and it’s still sticking to this day!! i recommend buying stickers from red bubble!!

Brianna on Sep 9, 2021 [RES]

Honestly for their price those stickers are super well made, very nice and stick well even once you take it off and put it back on again! My laptop looks incredible now!!

Samantha O. on Aug 4, 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 hydrofask! The colours are very accurate and vibrant! Thanks Redbubble!

Redbubble Vinyl Stickers vs Water

All of Redbubble’s stickers are made from good quality vinyl which makes them water-resistant.

Whether or not all Redbubble stickers are 100% waterproof is debatable.

But can they get wet? Definitely!

I put a sticker completely underwater for 30 minutes and it wasn’t ruined by the water at all!

Love your items! They look great and have withstood a lot of rain and wear by now.

Allison N. on Jul 12, 2021 [RES]

All my stickers looked great. Colors were clear not faded. Have been lasting well on things that get wet/washed frequently.

Redbubble Stickers on Water Bottles/Hydro Flasks

Can you put Redbubble stickers on your water bottle or hydro flask?

Absolutely! Put them on mugs too!

These stickers stick extremely well on surfaces with condensation and you can hand-wash them without ruining your stickers.

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 ordered stickers from Redbubble and from another company. Redbubble’s stickers actually stick to our water bottles and don’t come off when I was 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 Oct 26, 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!

Are Redbubble Stickers Dishwasher Safe?

I really doubt that Redbubble stickers are dishwasher safe (although some of the reviewers would disagree with me).

Redbubble stickers are fantastic! For several years now, I have been buying stickers from Redbubble and using them to decorate beverage containers as grad gifts or for other moments during the year. The sticker designs are awesome and the quality is top-notch. You can put bottles/tumblers in the dish washer too and the stickers stay put! Love them!

Kimberly on Aug 12, 2021 [RES]

I personally would NEVER put my sticker-covered water bottles and mugs in the dishwasher.


Because dishwashers are made to be extra tough on grease, so why put your stickers through unnecessary abuse?

I hand wash my sticker-covered travel mugs and water bottles, and they still look fine 10 months later.

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]

Glossy sticker looks great and is good at not washing off when my water bottle is washed

Can Redbubble Stickers Go on Cars?

Yes! Redbubble stickers can go on cars!

I put 2 glossy stickers and 1 small transparent sticker on the back of my car window, and they’re still really stuck on there and look great after 7 months.

I’ve also read online that some people put them on their cars for years, and they claim they still look great, with no peeling.

For more information on this topic, check out thatAnonymousArtist’s post: Can Redbubble Stickers Go on Cars?

I love everything I’ve gotten from this site. They all look and stick great, and the quality is unparalleled for the price. It’s especially satisfying because my designs look and hold up great on both my laptop and car. 10/10, definitely would order again.

Sam M. on Mar 25, 2021 [RES]

The quality of the stickers were amazing. They stick strong and have no peel when firmly attached to a surface. I put one sticker on the outside of my car and one on the inside and both stick with no problems. Regardless of the weather the stickers hold on strong while there is no sign of fade. Perfect.

Redbubble’s Laptop Skins (Laptop Stickers)

You can also put Redbubble stickers on your laptop (a really popular way to use these stickers). They won’t harm your laptop, they’re completely removable and they won’t leave a sticky residue.

I absolutely LOVE the designs of these stickers. I ordered 4 different stickers from this artist, and they were just as fantastic as they looked on the screen. The sticker itself has good stick-on quality and doesn’t leave marks when I peel it off.

Lindsay P. on Feb 24, 2021 [RES]

But what about Redbubble’s laptop skins?

Redbubble laptop skins (also called laptop stickers) are another way to show the world just how cool you are. They’re glossy, form-fitting vinyl decals that decorate your laptop while preventing minor scratches.

From the customer reviews I’ve read [RES], people said that the laptop skins are the same quality as regular Redbubble stickers and they’re as easily removable (except they’re bigger than regular stickers, so you might want a friend to help you).

I’m getting so many compliments every time I have it out. It’s staying in place, yet easy enough if you want to remove it. Definitely if you like it, get it!

Why Are Redbubble Stickers So Expensive? (Paying for the Artists’ Work)

I don’t think that Redbubble’s stickers are expensive at all, although I know some people would disagree.

Really nice but a bit expensive I think

rose on Mar 7, 2021 [RES]

Some people find that Redbubble is too expensive for the quality of the products you get. But I disagree because I understand that I’m paying for something unique and meaningful.

I’m also paying for an independent artist’s work.

Stuff is expensive but it makes sense because it’s peoples art that they put love into and it always turns out great!

Luke J. on Jan 4, 2020 [RES]

I’ve always been very satisfied with my purchases from redbubble! Cute stuff and great quality for good prices

Kim W. on Mar 8, 2021 [RES]

Whether it’s one of our cars, our fridge, our water bottles, or our laptops, Redbubble stickers help my family to better organize our lives while adding flare to our material possessions. It makes it easy to find your car in a parking lot. Or to tell whose water bottle is whose. Redbubble stickers allow us to personalize our spaces and things, while supporting independent artists. And we think that is a beautiful thing.

Overview: My Opinion of Redbubble’s Stickers + Star Ratings

So, are Redbubble’s stickers as good as online reviewers claim they are?

Yes! Redbubble stickers are not only good. They’re GREAT!

They’re durable, reusable, water-resistant, and super unique.

What’s not to love?

Superb product, looks amazing, sent really quickly and the only bad thing is that once I start looking on the site I want to order more and more!

Shelley S. on Mar 25, 2021 [RES]

My friends and I have ordered so many items from Redbubble for 14 years, including their stickers.

My personal rating of Redbubble’s stickers is 4.5 out of 5 stars. I only took out the 0.5 stars because sometimes (rarely) I’ll get a pixelated/blurry-looking sticker because the artist didn’t upload a high-quality design to Redbubble’s website.

Worse comes to worst if your sticker isn’t to your liking, it’s easy (and free) to return a Redbubble sticker within 90 days. Redbubble’s customer service is super great and they’re always willing to give a replacement, hassle-free.

I loved the stickers I ordered – I order these every year to use my my child’s school books. came in a timely fashion. Will for sure be ordering from Redbuble again : )

Caroline on Mar 11, 2021 [RES]

Brilliant sticker, superb quality and image and loads of options to choose from, will definitely buy again.
