Clear Stickers are durable against water and oils, and are finished with a protective UV resistant lamination for a long lasting application, even outdoors.

What's the difference between Die Cut Stickers and Kiss Cut Stickers?

Die Cut Stickers will have a back liner that will be cut to the exact shape and size of your sticker, with a split back for easy application. Kiss Cut Stickers will have a back liner that will be cut in a square that is slightly larger than your sticker design and shape. These stickers are ideal for small designs or custom shapes with delicate edges. Read more here.

 
What is the difference between front face adhesive and back face adhesive for my Clear Stickers?

A Clear Sticker with back face adhesive is the most common and means the adhesive for your sticker is on the back side for a traditional application. We can also print your Clear Stickers with a front face adhesive, so you can apply them to the inside of a clear surface facing outward, such as inside a storefront window looking out toward your customers.

What is the difference between water resistant and waterproof for stickers and labels?

When applied to a clean and dry surface, custom stickers will stay applied for a long time while holding up to exposure from water. These will hold up against rain, and last as stickers applied to water bottles that get hand washed on a regular basis. Custom labels are water resistant and will hold up against oils and water, but are best used for indoor purposes where they will not be submerged in water regularly. Read more here.

 
What types of lamination do you offer for custom stickers and labels?

How a sticker or label is finished can make a big difference for how they are applied and how long they will last. Our custom stickers are finished with an outdoor durable laminate that will hold up against wind, rain, and elements. Labels are finished with an indoor durable laminate that will resist oils and water, and also hold up in frozen conditions, such as labeling ice cream treats. Read more here.

 
What types of materials are your stickers and labels made from?

This depends mostly on what type of product you choose. Custom stickers are printed on a durable polypropylene material and finished with an outdoor durable lamination. Custom labels are printed on the same durable polypropylene material as custom stickers, but are finished with an indoor durable laminate and great for product packaging. Paper Labels are printed on two different types of paper materials depending on your choice of Glossy or Matte Recycled Paper Labels, and both are finished with a UV cured varnish for added durability.

What are Sticker Sheets?

Sticker Sheets are larger stickers with smaller, individual stickers on the sheet. Remember those sticker packs as a kid? This is the make your own version! You can use the background design around your sticker peels to add to your theme, share your brand and logo, or add a UPC code for turning your sticky designs into products for your store. Individual sticker peels can be as small as 0.375 x 0.375" and the number of peels per sheet will depend on the size of Sticker Sheet you choose. Read more here.

 
Are your custom stickers opaque?

While stickers can be an option for covering up things, the white polypropylene material we use is not 100% opaque. If you need an opaque sticker, just let us know. Read more here.

 
Will the ink run off my stickers or labels if they get wet or rained on?

Most of our stickers come with a lamination, in which case, they're water resistant. Our Glossy, Matte, Holographic and Clear Labels are also finished with a protective water resistant laminate. Paper Labels are not laminated but are finished with a UV cured varnish that helps prevent smearing or running of the ink from brief encounters with water or moisture. Read more here.
