Stop putting stickers on online orders

Status: Tell Us More

Multiple times now, I have purchased an item online, both for shipping and for in-store pickup. Every time, a large sticker is placed on the box. They are not easily removable and cannot be removed cleanly. On multiple occasions, these were gifts that had to be given with a big ugly sticker on it, or with the paper/adhesive left behind from trying to remove the big ugly sticker.

I’d this sticker is necessary, I’d like to suggest that your warehouses and stores be required to use removable adhesive. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure this has been suggested in the past. We are most likely not going to stop putting stickers on items we sell, but I guess it would be possible we could use removable adhesive. Would anyone else have any thoughts on this? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

The same goes for employees writing model numbers on Apple product boxes with sharpie.  It looks so unsightly and should be halted completely, if not at least during the holiday time period.  There's got to be a cleaner way to do that like label the shelf the products are on instead or a removable sticker of sorts.

The use of stickers and sharpies has probably resulted in reduction of a much larger issue and that is mis-picks of the wrong item.

The writing on the boxes is a lot worse. And sadly its usually on the more expensive Apple products and is very unsightly when gifting it to someone.

 

An example is posted here:

Gotta love getting an expensive keyboard & having to deal with this beautifully scarred box forever...all because I wanted to save a little time with in-store pickup.  I have more than a handful of examples of this, but this is just the latest.

Pickup Sticker Issues

The worst is when these stickers are applied to movies that have nice sleeves on them. As examples, I ordered for instore pickup, James Bond Skyfall and ExMachina (many months apart).  I really like having my movies in nice sleeves on my shelf and is why I still buy physical media.  The sleeve on Skyfall was totally ruined because no matter how carefully I tried peeling the huge sticker off, it somehow managed to rip the printing off of the sleeve. At that point, I should've just returned the movie and picked up a new one.

I hate to say it but they should definitely switch to the type of stickers like places like Gamestop use. Those are SO easy to remove and typically never leave behind a residue. Now on the other hand the old stickers from EB Games(chain that GS gobbled up), once those were slapped onto a product I think it would take a nuclear blast to get them off. Smiley LOL

An idea for the stickers could to printing out the sticker without exposing the adhesive backing and then just putting a small amount of tape on it (near the top for example) to hold the information on the product.That would hopefully allow for a cleaner and easier removal of the label after the product is in the customer's hands although the only issue I can think of is the potential for the information to be accidentally removed while in the awaiting pickup area due to contact with other products.

I picked up an online order not too long ago and to be honest I had ZERO issues getting the sticker off it. Maybe if you're ripping it off in a hurry it's gonna do damage, but I took my time and slowly peeled up one corner and then SLOWLY removed it and nothing was left of the sticker by doing so.

My local stores only peel back a small portion of the sticker and fold the removable backing. This makes for a very easy to remove sticker. However, I would agree that using a less adherant adhesive would be a great improvement. Especially when the item is wrapped in cellophane. Imagine trying to return a video game or other items with a limited return policy because you tore the packaging removing the sticker and the person receiving the gift didn't like it. Or perhaps the item can be placed in a clear bag and the sticker placed on that. It adds extra protection and you can just discard the bag with the sticker attached.
