Die Cut Sticker Printing
Die cut stickers are a quick and simple method to advertise your company, brand, or event. Die cut stickers can be cut in to any complex shape to meet your needs and are protected from scratches, water, and sunshine by thick, durable UV coated vinyl. Each sticker is produced on thick, durable vinyl with a matte finish, giving them a high-end appearance.
Die-cut sticker printing allows you to manufacture stickers in any shape you want. Create your design first, then print die-cut stickers in the shape and size that works best for you. As a result, these stickers are completely unique to you and your message.
Die-cut stickers can be used to promote your business or for a variety of other purposes, such as promotional freebies for bands, logo stickers, sports teams, and larger organizations. They may be applied on any smooth, hard surface with ease.
The unique forms are ideal for situations where your stickers need to stand out or fit into a tight spot. Sizes can be modified to your exact specifications, allowing you to make high-quality, full-color stickers in smaller or bigger sizes than other printers’ typical possibilities.
Die-cut stickers are available in a variety of materials, including paper, crack-and-peel vinyl, and transparent stickers. Use the vinyl stock for applications that demand additional durability and resistance to rain, weather, sunshine, and abrasion, as well as for more bright colors. For a more subdued effect and regular indoor use, choose paper stock.
Unlike other printing services, we carefully review each print job to verify that it adheres to your design criteria. How a result, your die-cut stickers will always look exactly as you imagined.
What is the Process of Making Die-Cut Stickers?
When we produce die-cut stickers, we utilize special blades that punch out bespoke forms on sticker paper in the same way that cookie cutters punch out shaped cookies from dough. Kiss-cutting is a similar technique in which the blades only softly touch the sticker paper, cutting the shapes on the adhesive top layer but leaving the backing sheet intact.
Cutting to size is a third option, which simply means that stickers are cut individually rather than remaining on sheets or rolls.
What is CMYK?
In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.
Accepted File Formats
We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.
Rich Black vs 100% Black
Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.
What Paper to Choose?
Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.
What is Font Outlining?
We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.
We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.
When printing, 300 PPI is the best print resolution for digital printers. The design of a file with a resolution below 300 PPI will result in blurring and pixelization. On the other hand, you should not design with a resolution higher than 300 PPI. As far as the eye can see, there will be no difference in print quality. It will also make your file much larger (increase file upload/transfer time).
We always recommend 300 PPI drawings to print, but we also know that sometimes you do not have the ability to edit your drawings. If you cannot print your files with a resolution of 300 PPI, you will have to take some measures to ensure that a lower resolution works for you.
We recommend that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (i.e. Photoshop) to 300 PPI before you start drawing your file. Increasing the resolution after the start will still result in blurring/pixelation.
All the work is checked by our team before printing. If we have any problems with the files, we will contact you and advise you how to change the format. Please note that conversion of both color and size mode will be done automatically without prior information.
During the analysis of the illustrations, we check
– if the files are presented in one of the accepted formats (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the number of pages is correct
– if the file supplied is greyscale (only if you have ordered a color print)
– if the file is the right size (otherwise we will scale your work to the desired size, however, this may result in a reduction in resolution. No additional bleeding will be added to the process either).
– if the drill lines have been specified
– if the appropriate fonts have been incorporated into the file.
To ensure that there are no white areas on the printed product, all files submitted should have a 2mm bleed on each side. This means that your design (both images and graphics) should always be 2mm larger than the actual print format. Failure to do so may result in slight variations, resulting in white margins. To ensure that the fonts and essential elements of your drawing are visible, place them at least 3mm away from the final format (not including bleeding) and do not use edges as edges in layouts.
– If you are submitting data for printing in an open format, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g. A4 size including bleed should be 301×214mm).
– If you are submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging or any other promotional technology products, please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on each side
– Envelopes should be supplied with a 1mm bleed.
– The textile elastic frames must be bled 15mm.
If you need more information, please consult our artwork instructions.
You can upload files in the following formats:
JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, PS (PostScript)
Make sure that your PDF file is saved directly from your graphics program in standard PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a). To avoid problems with layers and transparencies during the printing process, it is recommended to use the “1.3 compatibility” setting when saving artworks.
If you are sending TIFF files, be sure to reduce the number of layers to one.
To avoid problems with color variation or printed image, please do not use pre-separated data from DCS EPS.

UV coating is a clear substance that is applied to damp paper and cured quickly with ultraviolet light (UV coating is short for ultraviolet coating). Paper is coated with a variety of substances, including polyethylene, calcium carbonate, and kaolinite, among others. These chemicals are purified and combined with viscosifiers, which aid in their adhesion to paper. After printing, the coating is applied with a UV coating machine.
UV coatings vary in reflectivity and thickness depending on the application, however for premium printing applications, a high-gloss or subtle matte UV coating is often employed. UV coating can be applied to both the front and back of your product, or just one side. You can also choose spot UV coating, which applies an ultraviolet layer selectively to specific areas of your design (a great way to make logos or photos stand out).
Our UV stickers have a strong adhesive that allows them to adhere to a wide range of flat surfaces. Crack-and-peel stickers with a glossy UV finish printed on 70LB material. Our Glossy UV stickers have a protective coating that not only enhances the colors of your design but also protects it.
To satisfy your business or personal needs, we offer a variety of UV sticker printing options, including sizes, shapes, and quantity. Stickers can be used to create excitement and awareness at your next trade show or event, or they can be used as a product label to promote excitement and awareness.
There are three compelling reasons to coat your marketing materials with UV coating. To begin, a UV treatment will enhance and enrich your design. Your artwork will stand out and grab attention with a bright, glossy shine that allows vibrant colors to explode off the paper. Printing UV coated stickers, for example, will be more appealing than uncoated business cards, and they will not scuff when used on daily items like laptops or phone cases.
Second, a UV coating denotes high-end goods and services. You’re a high-end brand, and dressing the part instills trust in your customers. When you print superior marketing materials with UV coating, it gives the idea that your business is successful – and if it is, you most likely have a long list of delighted customers. The bottom line is that people will be more willing to conduct business with you.
Finally, UV coating protects your marketing products, allowing them to survive longer – and the longer they last, the more opportunities they have to generate response. Longevity means you may get more bang for your buck by increasing your return on investment. UV coated vinyl stickers, for example, will endure far longer than uncoated vinyl stickers.
Improve your Branding
They may assist you in branding your company by helping you choose the ideal logo and color combinations. You have the option of incorporating your brand as well as selecting a bespoke cut for your sticker. There are hundreds of alternatives to select from when sharing your brand and its brilliant colors with the world, whether you’re searching for automobile stickers, wall stickers, or a standard bumper sticker. Our in-house graphic designers can assist you in creating the perfect sticker design for your company and brand.
Best for Meetings and Events
Another strategy to promote your business while making it more memorable for others is to give them away as marketing gifts. Consider giving them away at local conferences and business events while strategically putting them throughout the event to help your brand stand out even more.
Make a Public Statement
It’s never been easier to stand out in public than with bright stickers that plainly display a statement or goal. Giving them away gives them the flexibility to put them on bags, drinks, and even in public places, increasing visibility and piqueing people’s interest in your business and what it has to offer. An example of an automobile bumper sticker is shown below. Be inventive in order to pique your audience’s interest.
Customers Can Easily Be Involved In Your Brand
They’re simple to pass around in person or on social media. Customers can interact with your brand in a less formal way than they can with a business card. People stick them on anything and everywhere, including their coolers, automobiles, laptops, and notebooks. Because of this constant use, potential clients are exposed to your branding on a daily basis, even if just unconsciously.
Your next best client might see your company’s logo on the same laptop they use every day in a coffee shop. They might do some research and contact you after months of constant brand exposure. Business cards don’t necessarily generate an emotional connection with your brand, but well-designed printed stickers do.
Try a Big Marketing Campaign for Less Money
Small test runs are used by companies with substantial advertising budgets. They begin with a little budget to test the waters before investing much in marketing that may not attract the right clients.
Because they are smaller than conventional printed marketing pieces, they are often less expensive to manufacture. Sticker marketing is a low-cost approach to test advertising campaign pieces including brief taglines and logos. The small sticker size makes it easier to explain what you’re attempting to say.
Invest in small batches of postcards for extra testing once you’re certain of your messaging. Then you’re ready to spend a lot of money on a multi-channel marketing strategy.
