Actually, out of those which have a white background, the majority do have
a saturated colour border.

That works well for stickers with a coloured background. For those with a
white background, it feels like a saturated colour gives a good contrast.

I'd be inclined to prototype, the two top-left logos from this image:


perhaps, variants with & without the  website URL (though the majority
on hexb.in omit the website URL and keep text to a minimum)

Do a clone of the hexb.in repo, and add our logo and see how nicely it
works when surrounded on all sides by other stickers.
