Sticker printing is an excellent way to add a unique touch to packaging or product labels. Whether you’re a small business owner or a hobbyist, it’s easy to get started with sticker printing.
Choosing the Right Materials
The materials you use to print your stickers will have an impact on the look and feel of your finished product. For example, a matte finish may work best for fine detail, while holographic stickers work better with bold designs.
Having an idea of what kind of materials you’ll be using early on will save you time and effort when you need to make a sticker printing order. Also, it’s important to note that the finish of the material will influence how long your stickers will last.
Selecting a Cut and Finish
There are several different cuts that you can choose for your stickers. Kiss cut is a common cut, where the top layer of the sticker is cut through but the paper backing remains behind. This cutting technique is commonly used to create sheets of stickers containing multiple designs.
Die cut is a more complex cut, where both the sticker and the backing material are cut into the same shape. This is a great choice if you want to make stickers in unique shapes such as the eight limbs of an octopus or a heart.
You’ll need to decide which shape is best for your project, so choose one that fits your design and budget. A variety of shapes are available, including circles, squares, rectangles, and more.
