So , if you want to do these, get the cups from your local dollarama and take them to a local sign/graphics company and see what they would charge - you'd be surprised!

      Thanks so much ladies! :) I'm really happy with them. After being so disappointed with the DIY stickers that we printed ourselves - this is a great solution!

       

      Soooo we just used a place in Barrie, Ontario - Fast Signs...just a local shop. We got 22 cups done for us and they gave us the 8 extra stickers that were printed out. We didn't actually tell them a size - apparently they just used the size of the picture I sent them. LOL :) My FI told them to use their judgement - stickers are 3" x 3". I'd say they are a perfect size! :)

       

      I used Powerpoint to create the logo myself - obviously using ideas from another bride on this site!
       

      The total bill was no more than $30 for everything done for us. There was a minimum of 25...which was fine - I'm good to have the extra stickers. Maybe I'll put them on a bubba ;) lol

       

      Good luck! :)

        Oh, and the stickers are printed on a clear plastic adhesive sticker...so they are completely see-through and waterproof. I don't know that you can buy this stuff somewhere and print yourself..I doubt it. Its the same kind of stickers that they put stickers or pin striping on a car with....so very heavy duty. Definitely NOT going to come off. :)

            love that they won't come off.. a bigger reason for me to do these

             

             

            just don't know if it's worth it for my to lug them to Hawaii., it's not like our resort is all inclusive.. so really what is it for? so then i thought koozies, just hoping that they fit the cups that the pool gives? then i'm like, i don't think you can bring your own down to the pool, so is that worth it? but they're so cute!! & the koozies are pretty cheap!

             

            any suggestions or opinions?!

                  I LOVE how these turned out Jamie!  And I like that the sticker is clear.  It’s always a great feeling when a project isn’t working out how you expected and then it turns out amazing.

                    I tested the stickers I ordered from Davet Designs, and they really are waterproof.  I hand washed them twice and I let them soak in water.  They are not coming off!

                     

                    I purchased my tumblers from the Dollar Tree. The colors I’ve seen in store are Clear, Blue, Red, Orange, Green and Pink. I had to go to at least 3 stores to get all clear cups, and I had them checking to see if they had any more in stock in the back.  If you don’t mind assorted colors, you can order them off their website.
