Ladies, it’s gameday. You would like to sport a headband with your team’s name on it. Maybe it’s your junior high, or your high school, or your college, or even your kid’s ball team.

If your team isn’t on the list, don’t worry. We’ll guide you through the steps to create your own beautiful custom decals and turn our Sunbands into your own team headbands. Concerned about licensing? Don’t be. If you are not selling the decals you create, you are legally allowed to recreate any team’s logo for your own personal use.
Step 1- Order a 3-pack of Sunbands by clicking here. Again, don’t forget to use DONNA10 at checkout.
Step 2 – Create and order your custom decals. It starts by right-clicking and saving a logo from the web or using any file you already have. You’ll need a horizontal logo, i.e. a name logo because the available space on the headband is up to 4.75″ wide and 1″ high. The dimensions of the logo you download don’t matter, so long as the name is horizontal. And the larger the logo file, the better your decals will turn out. So do an image search, pick out the largest, highest-quality horizontal logo of your team. Right-click and save it to your computer.
Here is an example of one I downloaded myself.
Step 2 – Visit RemoveBG to remove the background from your logo. This is easy and free. Just click Upload on the homepage, add your file and then you’ll see this. Click Download and it will save to your computer. Now you are ready to create your decals!
Step 3 – Visit Stickers International to design and order your decals. You’ll be ordering decals on a sheet, so depending on the size, you may receive as many as 32 decals on one sheet. This makes the process great for sharing. You can outfit a group if you like. You have a choice of materials. The least expensive is “Glossy Stickers.” This is what we recommend. Keep the shipping in mind. If your order is $20, then they ship free. So, you can add a second sheet, or even order something else to spend $20. Another option is to order them as “Window Clings.” They cost a little more but don’t have a sticky adhesive and can be taken off and reapplied.
Step 4 – Let’s design! The easiest thing is to use their Quick Builder pop out box on the right side of the screen. Enter the parameters you see here, then select either Glossy White Vinyl on Sheets or Gloss White Window Cling on Sheets from the Material dropdown box. You’ll be selecting white and putting these decals on the white Sunbands because white works universally with any logo. Throughout this process you will find it may take trial and error to get your size, materials, and pricing where you want it to be. It’s fine to start the design process over as many times as you need.
Step 5 – Next you will find yourself here. Click Design online/upload artwork.
Step 6 – Click Add a logo, Upload. Make sure you upload the file with the background removed.
Step 7 – Use the arrow pointer on the bottom right of the logo to drag the logo larger or smaller. Notice how I’ve gotten the logo to nearly touch the green lines on all four sides. That’s your goal. To get there you will have to use trial and error by adjusting the width. The height is always 1″, but the width needs to be played with until you can get your logo to nearly touch the green lines on all four sides. In this case, my width ended up being 2.5″. Notice the yellow warning box about logo quality. This will warn you about the print quality. In this case, it’s OKAY, and I’m okay with that because this logo is not extremely intricate.
Step 8 – Click OK at the bottom right of the screen, then click Finished Designing.
Step 9 – Next you will arrive at this screen. Click Print a proof.
Here is a screenshot of the proof. Notice how I’ve gotten the logo to fill out most of the sticker area. This goes back to how I tried several widths until I settled on 2.5.” You can go as wide as 4.75″.
Step 10 – If you are satisfied, proceed to the ordering process by clicking Approve this design and add to cart. Remember, if you aren’t completely happy with your design, or want to change the material, just scrap it and start over. Your logo will be saved once you’ve uploaded it, so starting over is pretty painless. If you receive a red, low print quality warning, look for a larger logo to download, and start over.
Step 11 – You need to know how to put the decals on straight, and we have a solution for that too. Just send us an email at email@example.com and tell us you custom ordered decals. We’ll email over the instructions.
