Before you can start the sticker printing process, you need to design the sticker. You can use a computer design program, such as Photoshop, or you can use a hand-drawn design if you prefer. Before you get started, make sure your design fits the sticker size. Also, use a bleed to ensure that no part of the artwork is cut off during production. Lastly, make sure your sticker design includes a safe zone, which is the area where all the essential information will be placed, which ensures that it will fit into the sticker’s dimensions.
Stickers are typically printed on either paper or vinyl, and there are several different types of paper. Matte white sticker paper is a great choice for indoor use. This type of paper has a permanent adhesive and is very easy to write on. Gloss white sticker paper has a reflective shine and is best for indoor use. If you want to write on your stickers, you should use a permanent ink pen, such as a ballpoint, because it will be more difficult to remove.
When it comes to choosing the paper for sticker printing, you need to know which ones are available in your printer. If you have a brand-name printer, it is best to buy cartridges for that brand. However, compatible cartridges are an excellent alternative to brand-name ink. They contain the same components, and are tested to produce high-quality results, but are usually 40 to 50 percent cheaper. However, you should check the packaging to ensure that the cartridge is the right size.
