Die Cut Stickers vs. Kiss Cut Stickers
What are the differences between Die Cut Stickers & 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, and laser cut, just with a slightly lighter touch, which leaves a slightly visible backing.
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.
