CLEAR sticker option
Instead of printing on white backgrounds (and ruining some of the effect for designs) having the option to print on clear stickers would make for a great option.
There are just some designs that work better without that white border.
Maybe even give options with different colours, not only white
I think it would be great if Redbubble expanded the sticker selection to include clear vinyl stickers (in addition to the white vinyl currently offered) and clear removeable window clings. The white vinyl looks kind of weird on car bumpers and windows, and I would love to be able to remove and reuse window clings on my car.
We’ve been looking into these basically since the day after we launched our original sticker product. Given the one-off nature of our product, they would probably have a higher price than the normal stickers – so we’d be keen to hear from you what price you’d expect these to come in at, and any other thoughts you have on them.
Would it not be possible to meet each other half way: let me elaborate. The stickers could be cut to the shape of the design then application paper applied. So its is a decal style sticker instead. For this to be easier the designer would need to create the design with a bleed in mind allowing for movement of the cutting. I understand weeding the excess vinyl from the cut sticker would add some time at RB's end but a small increase in cost would cover this. So the end product is a design which you peel the back off leaving the sticker applied to the application paper, then applying that to the surface, rubbin git on then removing the application paper. Hope this makes sense.
agree with the rest of the users on pricing. Half my designs are white and right now they cant be used for stickers at all.
I'd pay double for clear.
This idea has been on here for over two years, and you guys said you've thought about it since day one.......
Soooo why do we not see them on here yet? What in the hell happened? TAKE MY MONEY DAMNIT
Honestly, the white background feels tragically DIY on the back of my laptop. I'd be willing to pay up to twice as much for stickers with a clear backing.
I would spend A LOT of money on stickers here, if i could get them with transparent or black borders.. I have a black laptop and just recently bought a couple stickers from here.. It just looks weird with that white border.
i would pay 4-6 pounds for a clear sticker
$5 would be brilliant, but I would still pay around $10 for them? I would definitely buy a lot of them if they were available, so a discount for multiple purchases would be great too.
50% sounds about right for clear/border-less stickers. I have wanted so many stickers from redbubble, but have not bought a single one because they have borders. Please create this option soon. You'd be the one stop shop for all my sticker needs!
I think that 50% more per clear/colored background sounds fair. It's a necessity and I was shocked redbubble didn't offer this from day one (the same with different size options for stickers).
I hate buying them and cutting out all of the white by hand. For a lot of designs, even that isn't possible due to the complexity of the image.
The demand for these is high, even with a higher price tag. But tagging them at near $10 a piece would almost be insulting. The price should be semi-relative to the size of the sticker and the amount of ink used. I would pay $5~$6 for a smaller one and up to $25 for one that is 4~5 times larger. I think that would be fair.

I retail my stickers around the £3 mark so I would not have an issue with adding another pound on top of that to fund the new clear stickers. Laptop stickers would definitely benefit from this :)
If the sticker design could be separate from the T-shirt design, then that'd make it much easier and better.
I'd be willing to pay up to $1-$3 more for a good clear-backed sticker.
I would go at least 50% over current cost for clear stickers.
I'd say the price for transparent stickers should be anywhere between $1-$3 higher than what regular stickers are.
I don't understand why clear backgrounds would be more expensive than white ones? But if so, anything up to twice the price would probably still sell.
Some of my bestselling designs are all white so I have to disable the stickers. If clear film is really so much harder to come by than white, I would settle for being able to upload the design separately to the T-shirt one, so that I can give it a black or coloured background. I have done this with this design:
Which I have also uploaded separately for other products, but it's a pain to do.
It's becoming increasingly frustrating that Red Bubble have introduced loads of new products and allow artists to upload different variations of the design to virtually every one, but the sticker still remains tied to the t-shirt design. Just unlink them!
Stickers make up roughly half the sales of my multi-coloured designs. Since I have made over 330 sales of all-white designs (where I've had to make the sticker unavailable), that's about 165 sticker sales Red Bubble have missed out on, just from my work alone. Sort it out!

And as one of the other users mentioned, a separate upload from the tshirt for stickers would be great.

Im not sure about price, perhaps $5?
What I do know is that I have been asked to do car decals and that people arent so much a fan of the white edges. They are asking for quality stickers that will last on cars.
If this becomes an option, I would also like Stickers to become a separate category from shirts so I can upload a different version.
What if we had both options clear and white stickers? Then the buyer would have both options, and the artist would have both types for different kinds of designs. It would make everyone happy! I also feel that more stickers would sell because the general population loves clear background stickers, especially for car rear windows. It would be really cool if someday vinyls could be printed from this site, but I know that's entirely a whole new creature..
