What Are The Differences Between Die Cut Stickers And Kiss Cut Stickers?

The main difference between these two popular sticker options, comes down to how the sticker is finished on it's backing. A Die Cut Sticker will be laser cut completely through the backing of the sticker, so all you see is the custom shape and sticker design. Kiss Cut Stickers are also digitally printed, laser cut, and come in two finishes - on rolls or on rolls with perforations.

Both the Die Cut and Kiss Cut Stickers are digitally printed on white polypropylene, for a durable product you can stick just about anywhere. Choose from glossy or matte laminations and always get free custom shapes and full color printing with both Die Cut and Kiss Cut Stickers. In fact, if you were to print the same design in a Die Cut Sticker or a Kiss Cut Sticker, once peeled from the backing both of your stickers would look the same. To help you decide between these popular choices, we've outlined some of the key differences below.

About Die Cut Stickers

The key feature of a Die Cut Sticker is how the backing of the sticker aligns exactly with the shape and size of the sticker itself. The easy peel design of the backing, makes Die Cut Stickers easy to apply, display on a countertop, or toss into a bag alongside a customer's purchase. Die Cut Stickers from StickerGiant are also available in your choice of a glossy or matte finish.
