Sticker printing is a fun way to add a little flair to your products, boxes, bags and more. When printing custom stickers, there are a few things to keep in mind that can help ensure your finished product is both durable and professional looking.
Choosing the right paper is essential. You can find a variety of sticker papers that come in different thicknesses and finishes to suit your specific project needs. For example, if you’re creating an adhesive label to use for packaging, look for laminating sheets that protect your stickers against water and sunlight. You can also choose from clear vinyl sticker paper for a more premium finish.
Another important factor is making sure your stickers are properly cut before they’re printed on. Whether you’re using a circle punch or a straight line paper cutter, make sure your stickers are correctly sized to fit on their final destination before cutting them out. If you’re creating a digital version of your stickers, make sure to save the file as a transparent PNG cut file in Photoshop or any other image editing program you use. This will make it easier for your computer software to pick out the sticker elements in your design.
If you’re printing a large number of stickers, it might be worth taking your project to a professional printer. They’ll take the guesswork out of calibrating a printer, and they can often handle high-volume orders at cost-effective pricing. They can also help you find the perfect template for your design, so you’re more likely to get a high-quality finish on each order.
