…I have to say, for a sticker, it is good quality. Not something you usually get with something as simple as a sticker. Definitely worth the price.

Can Society6 Stickers Get Wet? (Water vs Vinyl Sticker)

Yes, your Society6 stickers can definitely get wet. They’re made from water-resistant vinyl.

These stickers won’t smudge or unstick if you put water or oil on them. On the other hand, other kinds of paper stickers will get damaged if you put any kind of liquid on them.

When it comes to durability, Society6 stickers are a great choice. Vinyl stickers last longer, look better, and stick to different surfaces better than most other kinds of stickers.

Love it. So glad it’s printed on plastic and not paper like most stickers. It will definitely hold up better

The laptop skin I bought is just as pictured. Beautiful design and colors and good quality. Application went smoothly and you can even peel back and readjust without tearing the skin…

But does this mean Society6 stickers are 100% waterproof? Let’s find out.

Society6 Stickers: Waterproof vs Water-Resistant

Society6 stickers are not considered 100% waterproof, but they’re definitely water-resistant.

What’s the difference?

Waterproof Stickers

Waterproof means that the stickers are unaffected by water, no matter how much time they spend in the water.

A sticker classified as waterproof means that all parts of the sticker (including the adhesives and inks) have to be able to survive underwater for a long period of time.

So basically, a waterproof sticker will still look great and stick even when it’s underwater, for at least a few years.

Water-Resistant Stickers

On the other hand, a water-resistant sticker will resist the absorption of water, but not entirely.

Unfortunately, water-resistant stickers will eventually be ruined by water, which doesn’t make them the best choice if you want your stickers to constantly be in contact with water or moisture.

Vinyl, which Society6 stickers are made of, is one of the most common materials for water-resistant stickers.

From my own personal experience, I assume that Society6 also uses water-resistant adhesives (glue) and inks for their stickers since they don’t unstick or smudge even after a lot of contact with water.

I’ve had 3 stickers on a hydro flask for 18 months, and I’m constantly hand-washing it with dish soap and water. And you know what? They still look as good as new!

I’ve also put 2 transparent stickers on the back window of my car*, and they’re still really stuck on there. The only thing is I think the sun will do more damage to the stickers than the rain. After a year outside, the colors of the stickers don’t seem as vibrant.

But that’s OK!

If my stickers fade to the point where they don’t look good, I’ll just replace them with new ones! It’s a good thing that vinyl stickers are easy to peel in one piece without leaving behind residue.

* If you’re wanting to put a sticker on your car windows or a dark surface, I really recommend getting stickers with white borders. I find the transparent stickers blend in way too much with windows and dark surfaces, and you can hardly see the design. This is especially true with black text!

The sticker is perfect. I wish I would have gotten the white backed one to better match my notebook (it’s black, so the back kind of overwhelms the sticker). If you’re putting the sticker on a dark surface, I recommend the white backing. Super cute and great quality though!

I ordered the stickers from my own shop to test the quality, and they exceeded my expectations. Great printing quality and the kiss cut was perfectly fit around my design…This made me super inspired to make and order more stickers from Society6 :)
