When launching your sticker business, it’s important to be aware of the printing process and know what to look out for. It can save you a lot of frustration and money!
Before you begin, decide how many stickers you want to print on each sheet of paper. Generally speaking, you should aim to create a minimum of 10 stickers per sheet to ensure you have enough for each order. This will prevent you from running out of stickers halfway through your first batch.
Choosing the shape and size of your sticker is another important step. You can choose from standard round, oval or square stickers, or you can opt for kiss-cut or die-cut stickers that are cut into a custom shape, such as your company logo.
Once you have your design in mind, recreate it on a computer using an image editing program such as Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Alternatively, you can also use free software such as GIMP or Canva to get the job done.
Regardless of which software you are using, be sure to save your file as a PDF. This is the safest format for printing, and it will ensure that your stickers remain in their original, high-quality form. In addition, it is recommended that you print one sheet as a test run. This will allow you to inspect the stickers from a closer distance and make any necessary adjustments before printing more batches. If you’re looking to make your stickers more water resistant, you can also invest in laminating sheets.
