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.

#3: Durability

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.

Sticker Printing FAQ

What are vinyl stickers?

Vinyl stickers are printed graphics with an adhesive side for application on to walls, windows or smooth surfaces. Vinyl is preferred for sticker printing as it allows vivid colors and is both waterproof and scratch proof, perfect for outdoor use. Vinyl stickers can be die-cut in to all sorts of shapes and are easily removed from surfaces.

What are die cut stickers?

In printing, die cut refers to a razor-sharp, thin steel blade that is made in to a specific pattern much like a cookie cutter. This sharp blade cuts the cardstock, sticker or label in to a specific shape.

Printing New York offers quality cutting and creasing services at very competitive prices. Our professionals and state-of-the-art equipment will give your products a unique and fully customizable shape, designed and printed according to your needs and requirements.

Whether you want a business card with rounded corners, a somewhat geometric brochure or a more complex ornament that will be stitched into a large piece – we will do it all for you! Our cutting machines are flexible and can produce even the most unusual and complex shapes you can imagine.

What are the different types of sticker material?

UV stickers

Our UV stickers feature special UV resistant lamination, which is available on both our Glossy Die Cut Stickers and our Kiss Cut Stickers and will help protect your stickers from the elements, such as the sun, wind, and rain. This lamination gives your stickers a glossy appearance and is perfectly clear.

Vinyl Stickers

When these stickers are placed to a surface, they will seem virtually transparent due to the durability and weather resistance of the substance. You may put a layer of white ink behind your designs on all of our clear sticker materials to increase the opacity of your artwork when your clear stickers are placed on colored surfaces.

Polyester, clear

Polyester is a very durable synthetic film that is mainly utilized for outdoor applications in harsh environments. It resists moisture as well as most oils and solvents, making it a long-lasting choice for industrial applications.

Polypropylene (clear or white)

Almost all of the bespoke stickers we create are printed on this thin, but sturdy film. This material, which is approximately 2.6 mil thick, is available in white or transparent, depending on your requirements. On white or transparent polypropylene, we print Die Cut, Kiss Cut, and all of our labels.

Vinyl Static Cling

This thin vinyl, which is used for Static Cling Decals, contains a static charge that allows it to cling to a smooth, non-porous surface like glass or plastic. Because this material adheres to the surface using natural static cling rather than adhesive, it may be removed or relocated without leaving any trace.

Back printing is available on our transparent vinyl for front face clings that may be utilized on the inside of a window or glass surface, and static cling vinyl is available in white or clear.

How long do stickers last?

Even under harsh weather conditions like rain and sun, vinyl stickers may endure up to 8 years. They won’t break or fade in various weather conditions, and the colors won’t fade, making them ideal for use on windscreens, windows, vehicles, and vans. If you use your sticker inside, such as on a laptop, refrigerator, or mirror, it will likely survive far longer than 8 years.

Just remember to keep one thing in mind: anything you use to put your vinyl sticker must be as dirt-free as possible. This dirt may be dust, sand, soil, grease, salt, or something else entirely – whatever it is, it will either prevent your sticker from adhering right away or cause it to begin peeling away from the surface much sooner than it should. If you clean the surface well, the sticker will last a long time.

If you’ve had a negative experience with vinyl stickers previously, it’s most likely because the surface wasn’t clean OR you were sold a sticker made of cheap vinyl, as stated above. Metamark (which we use at Printing New York), 3M, and Avery are all trusted vinyl companies.

Do stickers fade in the sun?

The kind of material used and the ink used are the two most important variables in the lifetime of a sticker. The most popular base material for outdoor stickers is vinyl. The material is designed to withstand continuous exposure to the weather for many years. Some vinyl materials may even endure for seven to ten years! For transportation decals such as boats, trucks, and RV designs, this is critical. Vinyl is the most frequently utilized material because of its ability to adapt to a variety of curved or rounded surfaces. Vinyl’s flexibility is unparalleled!

Another popular outdoor sticker material is polyester. This material is ideal for high-temperature applications such as under the hood, as well as heavy-duty machinery such as tractors and lawnmowers. Polyester offers a longer outdoor life than vinyl and is also more environmentally friendly!

Quality of Ink

Inks for printing stickers come in a variety of colors and kinds. Printing New York utilizes UV inks, which are very durable and resistant to sun fading. The quantity of pigment in each kind of ink determines how long stickers will remain before they fade. Printers that utilize solvent-based inks have a disadvantage since the majority of the ingredients in these inks must evaporate in order for the ink to dry. When UV inks are subjected to UV light, they cure and maintain their structure; nothing evaporates, thus the ink remains strong.

Quality of the Materials

We can print on a variety of materials, including chrome, vinyl, and anything in between. The material on which your sticker is printed has a significant impact on how long it will survive. When exposed to the environment, paper stickers will collect moisture and peel off. If you want your sticker to last, think about how long you want it to last before choosing on the material to use.

The Printing Methodology

To print your stickers, we employ screen printing, flexographic printing, and digital printing. UV inks are used in all three of our printing processes. Each method uses various ink thicknesses, which results in varied colorfastness times. The ink will be more resistant to fading if the ink deposit is thicker. Flexographic printing puts down an extremely thin layer of ink, allowing for higher line screens and better print quality. Screen printing uses the most ink and lasts the longest, whereas digital printing is halfway between the two in terms of picture quality and sticker durability.
