whats a good place to find stickers to put on my ukulele?
online retailers? local retailers?
what are cool brand stickers?
Okay, I've got a few stickers, how do I decide where to put it?

Best place is probably a decal store, but what kind of stickers are u really looking for, colorful ones or jus 1 toned. I actually was lucky enough to nab a Kala Sticker off ebay, which i'll be puttin on my case, took me 3 months of waiting around for a kala sticker to come out.

Another good technique would be if u go to like office depot or any office supply store that sells computer paper, luckily you'll find some sticker paper and you can print ur own stickers, also try to laminate the front of the sticker if u can.

i would just go to a decal store, that way you can put whatever you want as opposed to going to a store and only getting what they have. I wouldnt do the printable sticker paper because for one, its paper. even with lamination it would still be susceptible to moisture, pealing, and disoloration. Also, if you decide to take the sticker off...again, its paper. it will tear and you'll be left with adhesive and paper to remove which is a pain.... especially on natural wood.

I know this is a bit OT, but how would stickers affect the sound of the uke? For instance, if I were to apply a vinyl sticker over the entire soundboard of the instrument, would I be changing the acoustics?

Yeah Those stickers look great. We don't have a target on Guam, but we have Kmart. I never heard of them selling stickers or decals though. Maybe I never looked.. I like those island theme stickers though.

Well, if you're on Oahu and want something similar to those, you can find them all over the place in many supermarkets. I'd reccomend Don Quijote or Walmart. They have all of those touristy things. I'd bet ABC Stores probably have similar stickers too, and I think they have ABC Stores in guam.

I've always been under the impression that it would affect the sound quality of the instrument. Maybe it wouldn't be noticeable, but if you have a nice uke and are a bit of an obsessive compulsive when it comes to tone (as I am) I would advise against it.

Yes, Target is almost exactly like K mart.
There aren't any K marts in Texas, and there aren't any Targets in Hawai'i yet.
Funny huh?
I got a sheet with 5 decals on it ( that is where the hibiscus came from ), and I got another with the slippers.
Glad you like um.

Hotnanas,
As far as changing the sound goes, I played about 30 seconds after I got done squeeging the air bubbles out, and I didn't notice any difference in the sound at all.
Since the sticker/decal is attached to the sound board, they would vibrate together.
It sounded the same to me.
However, if you had a better Ukulele than I do, there might be a noticeable difference, I can't say because I only have a Kala.
Thanks for the interest.

the808king,
WOW! That really looks good. I think that the island stickers are awesome.
Great job

Your uke looks tip top, nice job with the stickers/placement

It's photoshopped. He said thats what he wants it to look like. Unless I'm horribly mistaken.

I looked in Walmart today, didn't see any good stickers for my Uke.

Thanks for the link to inlaystickers.com, that's really cool. I'm going to get some for my Uke and my Acoustic Guitar.

does anyone know if there is a website that you can make your own sticker? i know they do it with shirts, and it would be sweet if they did it with stickers.

yeah a lot of decal stores make customs stuff and i have a few around my area, they actually made me some custom stickers, i have one on the back of my car and on the bottom of my longboard. i'll take a pic of it tomorrow or sumtin. And the material they use last for like a long time, i've had mine for 5 years about. And its gone against a battle with my back windshield wiper for that long and it rains like crazy in washington. :D

back when i had it made i dont think they charged for like a scan fee, but they charged me 2 bucks for clean up of the image i sent them. Then i think the stickers were like 7 bucks, smaller version of this one tho. but this big one was 10 or 12.

I would really love this style on my ukulele for sure.

It looks very good, expecially this type of color uke.

Hey, thanks, I really appreciate that.

I feel that for those of us that don't have the money to buy a better Ukulele,( like G string, or Kamaka ) then decals are the way to make your Ukulele reflect your personality.
Just get a sticker that you like, and don't worry about what others think.
What fits for you is what you should get.

So, I named my new ukulele Lucy, due to the black and white features, cuz of the show I Love Lucy, and also because of the song Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds. Got this sticker made this morning only 8.33+tax
