With PrintRunner sticker printing, customers can choose their material and finish. For indoor use, matte white sticker paper has a smooth finish and is easily written on with any pen. For outdoor use, glossy white sticker paper is the choice. Its glossy surface is suitable for outdoor use but is only readable with permanent inks or ballpoint pens. Vinyl stickers are also available with a gloss or matte finish. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Before beginning the printing process, it is recommended to design a template that will allow you to accurately place your artwork. You can create this template using a free image editing software or by creating one with the help of a professional designer. Regardless of the method you choose, all artwork needs to be within the art boundary box and the background must not be cropped off during the production process. Choosing the size and surface texture is vital to the quality of your stickers.
If you’d like to use your own designs, you can choose single stickers, which are perfect for events or promotional giveaways. They can also be kiss-cut or cut-to-size for easy application. If you’re ordering a large number of stickers, however, you may want to choose roll stickers. The advantages of roll stickers are that they’re packaged on a cardboard spool and can be used in sticker dispensers, saving you the time and trouble of applying each individual sticker by hand.
