IF THE RENAISSANCE PRODUCED POLYMATHS LIKE LEONARDO DA VINCI AND NICOLAUS COPERNICUS, THEN I WANT TO BE A RENAISSANCE WOMAN. IF ANCIENT TIMES BEGOT FORCES LIKE IMHOTEP, PYTHAGORAS, AND ARISTOTLE, THEN UNIVERSITIES CALL FOR ANCIENT INTELLECT.

EDUCATION

What is Sticktak?


Sticktaks are unique Removable Fabric Stickers that seamlessly integrate with ANY fabric surface and add instant embellishment to any outfit, accessory, furniture or event decor. With a variety of laser-cut designs sticktaks are an instant style upgrade, and are specially formulated to leave even the most fussy of fabrics completely residue-free.




What can you use sticktak to print on?


ANY fabric surface - Apparel, pillows, curtains, laptop cases etc...




Can I personalize a Sticktak?


Why of course! Look at our nametags category - you send us your design and a list of names and we make them... one by one...




Who is behind Sticktak?


Sticktak is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, Roni and Tamar. Inspired by Roni’s young son’s morning ritual of demanding a very specific shirt for the day (not the train, the lion; not the lion, the truck...) the two friends were inspired to create a way to instantly add a personal touch to any outfit. Sticktaks offer a creative, commitment-free means to transform any fabric surface, including T-shirts, into a multitude of different looks.




How do you "print" with sticktak on any fabric surface?


Just Peel like you would any other sticker, Stick & GO




Is it reusable?


At least twice or three times on fabric surfaces (really depends on the surface) and later you can stick on any static surface (phone, closet, fridge...) and it will stay there for as long as you like




Is it washable?


Although it sometimes holds in a wash, we advise to remove before wash as this product was not designed to withstand wash




How is it ecofriendly?


In so many ways: 1) We produce everything ourselves, in our studio - so no sweatshop/child labor issues 2) We use environmentally friendly water-based inks as well as such based proprietary adhesive 3) It's reusable 4) But best of all - it's usually used instead of printing tshirts, hats etc.. so by actually producing just sticktaks and using people's own clothes, we can still brand parties and events reducing 98% waste (another tshirt used later only as PJs) 5) Quality is so good and product is so compelling that most people never want to throw it away and therefore reuse and reuse...




What about lead times?


We take 10 business days to product any order. We can also do expedite orders in 3-4 business days for 25% additional cost. Shipping will take another 1-3 business days dpending on location (see q. about shipping)




What about Shipping?


We ship worldwide with DHL - 1 day to Europe, 2 to the USA and 3 to the rest of the world.




What are the shipping costs?


We deliver all sticktaks, directluy from our studio to your home or office, via DHL. We charge teh direct DHL shipping price - which is 15 dollars for most orders. Larger and more heavy orders will cost more to ship.
