Do Redbubble Stickers Leave Residue?

If you’re a big fan of stickers, you’ll love redbubble. They have a huge selection of different stickers, and they’re always adding new ones.

But if you remove Redbubble stickers from a surface, can you expect the stickers to leave any residue behind?

Stickers are made from a tough vinyl material that is designed to be long-lasting so they stay adhered over time. However, when you’re ready, Matte, Glossy, and Transparent stickers are removable so you’ll find they are easy to peel off and won’t leave sticky residue behind.

The short answer is that, typically, Redbubble stickers don’t leave any residue behind.

However, sometimes, there may be some residue left on surfaces after sticking redbubble stickers, but it’s usually not too bad. (I personally haven’t had any sticker residue left behind from my Redbubble stickers so far).

Why Would Redbubble Stickers Leave Residue Behind?

The adhesive used by redbubble is similar to that used by many other companies, and it’s quite strong. However, there are some things you can do to make sure the sticky residue doesn’t get on your stuff.

First, make sure the sticker is completely dry before applying them to a clean, smooth, and dry surface.  If you used a wet sticker on something, it will leave a little bit of residue.

If you’ve applied a sticker to something that’s already been covered in wax, the wax may have dissolved part of the glue and removed some of the adhesive.

How To Remove Sticker Residue

Adhesive residue can be a nuisance, but it is easy to remove. Here are some tips to help you get rid of the adhesive:

  1. Try using a hairdryer. Hold the hairdryer about six inches away from the adhesive and heat it up for about 30 seconds. The heat will help to loosen the adhesive and make it easier to remove.
  2. Use a plastic scraper. If the hair dryer doesn’t work, try using a plastic scraper to remove the adhesive.
  3. Use Goo Gone (Amazon) or another citrus-based cleaner. Apply the cleaner to a cloth and use it to wipe away the adhesive residue.

I was hesitant to try goo gone at first because I wasn’t sure if it would work. But, I’m glad I did because it works great! I had a sticker on my laptop and goo gone got rid of the residue without damaging the surface.

Conclusion: Does Redbubble Stickers Leave Residue Behind?

In conclusion, it seems that Redbubble stickers do not leave residue on surfaces. Although some users have experienced this issue, it does not seem to be a common problem.

If you are considering purchasing stickers from Redbubble, you can rest assured that they will not cause any damage to your belongings.

Residue left behind by stickers generally depends on the type of sticker and the surface it is applied to. In general, vinyl stickers (like those used by Redbubble) leave the least residue, while paper stickers tend to leave more. If the sticker is removed carefully, there should be minimal residue, but if it is pulled off quickly or in a rough manner, it can damage the surface and cause more residue.
