Our Sticker Types
If your designs are all about retro vibes, uniformed shapes, and clean lines, square-cut stickers are for you. This type of sticker looks exactly as described, its a 1:1 ratio cut sticker, so no matter what shape you design, it will only ever print on a square blank.
Our square cut stickers are made from a vinyl that can be used both indoor and outside, which opens up a number of additional applications compared to stickers that can only be used inside. The glossy surface is also scratch-resistant, which again makes these stickers perfect for exterior use.
The reason that square-cut stickers are so popular is down to the fact that, with the right designs, you get a lot of sticker real estate. Make your own stickers using edge to edge designs will really help your stickers jump out from any surface they are applied to.
Available in 4 different sizes 2×2″, 3×3″, 4×4″, and 6×6″. You can print your own stickers with each size in mind, or simply apply your design across the range.
When it comes to custom printed stickers, it’s hard to look past kiss-cut. This method of cutting the sticker to the shape of your design helps to create a more custom, personalized appearance.
The term kiss-cut comes from the way the sticker shape is cut from the material. A cutting die cuts through the adhesive ‘sticker’ part, but only kisses the backing paper, allowing you to peel your custom sticker from the non-adhesive paper in the desired shape.
Available in 4 different sizes 2×2″, 3×3″, 4×4″, and 6×6″. Just like the square cut stickers, our kiss-cut stickers can be used both indoors and outside. Giving you endless applications and design options while making your own stickers.
You can achieve any shape you like with kiss-cut stickers. One thing that is important to remember is your design will be followed by either a white or transparent ‘edge’:
- 2×2 sticker – Kiss-cut will be 20 px away from the edge of the image
- 3×3 sticker – Kiss-cut will be 30 px away from the edge of the image
- 4×4 sticker – Kiss-cut will be 40 px away from the edge of the image
- 6×6 sticker – Kiss-cut will be 50 px away from the edge of the image
