Adding stickers to your products is an easy way to elevate them, as well as add a unique unboxing experience for customers. While many people make their own stickers at home, it’s also possible to outsource this work. Sticker printing companies can produce large runs of custom stickers at a lower cost than home printers, and they can often provide a faster turnaround.
To print your own stickers, you’ll need a good quality paper and a sticker cutter (or an at-home vinyl cutter). Ensure the paper works with your printer type, and is thick enough to withstand the cutting process. You’ll also need a design to print on your sticker sheets. It’s best to make sure the graphic you use is at least as big as the final sticker size, and save it in CMYK format. This ensures that the colors will print correctly on different papers.
Tip #1: Consider using a glossy paper for your stickers. It’s more durable than standard paper, and can withstand water and oil.
It’s important to note that using a gloss paper requires the use of dye or pigment ink, so it’s best to test your printer with the paper before placing an order. It’s also a good idea to get a hardcopy proof of your stickers before sending the entire run to press. This will allow you to spot any typos or design flaws before the printing runs.
Sticker printing is a great way to increase brand awareness and boost sales. With a little bit of research, you can find a company that provides high-quality stickers at a reasonable price.
