Sticker printing can seem intimidating but it’s actually quite simple. Familiarizing yourself with the technical process beforehand can save you a lot of frustration and even money. Once you know what to look for, it’s just a matter of finding the right print shop, selecting your material and designing your stickers.
If you’re printing your stickers at home on a laser or inkjet printer, make sure the paper is sticker-compatible and that you’re using the correct printer settings. Typically this means choosing the “glossy photo paper” setting which slows down the printing process and ensures that your stickers don’t smudge or turn out looking pixelated.
Decide how many stickers you want to print per sheet and leave some space for cutting out the individual stickers. You can also choose to laminate your stickers if you want them to be water resistant and last longer.
For large orders, a professional sticker printing service can be a sensible option. These services take care of the entire production process for you and can be a great option if you don’t have access to high-quality print and cut equipment at home.
If you decide to use this option be sure to compare the cost-per-sticker to other options on the market so that you’re not paying more than you need to. This is especially true if you’re selling your stickers on an ecommerce platform like Etsy or your own website. And don’t forget to include a shipping option in your listing so that your customers have the best experience possible when receiving and using your stickers!
