How to print stickers
You can customize your sticker design with any familiar application or image editing software. But like anything you try to do yourself, printing stickers can be expensive if you don’t do it right the first few times. To avoid this, here are some very important things to remember.
#1: Color match your Stickers
The accuracy of your colors will depend greatly on the printing process you choose. CMYK is most used for home printing and for printing professional budgets. This process involves placing colored ink in dots until you create the desired color on the page. Almost all home and office printers use CMYK processing, and even professional photographic printers use a similar concept (although with a much greater variety of ink colors). CMYK processing will give you good, accurate color results at a reasonable price. The second option for vinyl adhesives is Pantone® color. Pantone is an excellent option for color accuracy and color saturation, especially for stickers that have a large solid color area. While up to 10% of CMYK shades can be lost, Pantone is the closest to screen accuracy for the sticker that can be obtained.
#2: Choose the right colors
The lighter colors are not always well translated by the CMYK process. In many cases, colors in the lighter 10% of the spectrum are not translated at all. This means that a subtle yellow or pink tint on your sticker may appear white to the casual observer – an aspect that may blur your design. Similarly, designs that include too much black will vary depending on the color balance that makes up the black tone in the design. In other words, the colors that are combined to create a black tone on your screen will determine what proportions of black and colored inks go to the page. Wrong design choices may result in black shades or color tones that become tinted. Talk to one of our teams about choosing the right colors for your stickers.
Not all stickers are designed to last forever. Differences in ink, printing process and paper will result in differences in durability, so it’s wise to confirm you’re using the right materials (or ordering the right type of sticker for your prints). Few things are more unfortunate for your brand than investing in vinyl stickers that clean and disappear in less than a year, leaving an unpleasant residue on your car. Not every sticker you make will have to stand the test of time, and not every sticker will have to face rain and fading sun. But if that’s your intention, don’t forget to do your homework at the supplier’s choice.
#4: Die Cut Sticker
The formation of the stickers creates a strong visual effect that enhances the elements of your design. Die cutting is the quickest and easiest way to cut custom stickers or stickers to size. Professional presses often have the die-cutting function as an option for printing stickers, which makes it quick and easy, but you can also do it yourself with a laser cutter. Some other considerations to take into account when printing from home:
#5: Separate large areas of color
Printing consecutive solid colors on large areas is not easy (or cheap for that matter). Pantone will print cleaner and more solid color, but costs more than standard CMYK printing. Besides, you can’t do that at home. Another solution is to avoid designing stickers with large areas of solid color.
#6: Get the best quality
Almost all print drivers have various degrees of print quality designed to adjust the print speed and amount of ink used. When printing high quality stickers, you will want to switch to the best print quality mode. This will take longer than printing in normal or draft mode, but the results are much better.
