Custom Stickers


Custom Sticker-Printing Makes Your Brand Stick

Custom sticker printing is a go-to marketing strategy for good reason. Stickers add personality to product packaging or make great giveaways that cultivate brand impressions. Anyone impressed with the sticker design will place your organization’s custom sticker on their laptop or notebook cover. Printing custom stickers for your business is an eye-catching way to spread your message and boost brand visibilityWith all the different shapes, sizes, and materials available, what type of stickers would best suit your business?   

What’s the Difference Between a Sticker and a Label? 

On the surface, stickers and labels look very much alike. 

The difference between the two lies ihow you’re going to use them:  

  • Stickers are mostly used for branding or to promote a cause. They can also be used in packaging but mostly as add-ons. Like labels, stickers also come in rolls, but if they are going to be handed to customers or included in a package, the cut-to-size format is more ideal  
  • Labels are often used to identify a brand or product. They are usually applied to product packaging to provide information or to make branding more memorable. Custom labels are available cut-to-size and in rolls.   


Order Custom Stickers  

Our custom sticker printing options come in styles and sizes that suit many purposes:  

  • Cut-to-size (or individually cut) stickers are perfect for handing out at small events or in your store.   
  • Roll stickers fit in most label dispensers for fast and easy application on bulk items. 
  • Sticker sheets are great for creating different designs in one order.  
  • Kiss-cut stickers are easy to peel and can be printed in any shape that you want.  


How to Peel Off Stickers  

Stickers come with paper backing that protects the adhesive from air exposure. Since stickers come in different shapes and format, it’s essential to know the best ways on removing stickers so that they remain crease-free when you transfer them to your product packaging or any other surface.   


Cut-to-Size Stickers  

Cut-to-size stickers come with a bend-and-peel backing that helps peeling off a lot easier. This backing comes in two panels, which you need to split or bend to reveal the adhesive. Here’s a video showing how it’s done:  


Kiss-Cut Stickers 

Unlike die-cut stickers that are trimmed to an exact shape, kiss cuts sit on a large paper backingTo peel off, look for the border and flick up the edge of the sticker with your nail and finger. Gently lift the sticker and move to another corner if needed to avoid creasing.  


Sticker Sheets 

Sticker sheets come with a full-sized backing. You need to remove the stickers one-by-one, so you will be left with the sheet itself once you’re done peeling off the stickers. Look for the outline around the piece of sticker you want to remove. Gently lift the sticker from one corner and move around until you’re able to lift the whole thing off. Smaller stickers can be removed in one swoop.  


Roll Stickers 

Roll stickers are perhaps the easiest to peel off from the backing. Simply look for an edge that you can easily lift off and work your way around just as you would with a kiss-cut or die-cut sticker.   


Customize the Shape of Your Stickers  

Custom-shaped stickers are available in several die-cut shape options including Square/Rectangle, Circle, Oval, Arch, Hexagon, Heart, and Starburst.  

You can also opt for a custom shape. Upload your logo or artwork and we'll provide you a proof to show how we will cut around it. No need to worry about the dieline! The printing time for custom shapes usually takes 6 business days.  

Our custom stickers are affordable, precisely cut, and made from high-quality materials.

What material should I use if I want to write on my stickers?  

Writable stickers are an easy way to personalize your message. They are also great for adding little notes on storage boxes, gift wraps, and more. Below are the sticker materials that you can write on:  

  • 70 lb. Label Matte – works best with a ballpoint pen or permanent marker 
  • 70 lb. Label High Gloss – use a permanent marker for best results 
  • 4 mil. White Vinyl High Gloss – writable with a permanent marker only  


There are also premium sticker materials you can scribble on. However, you can only write on these with the uncoated option:  

  • White Vellum Textured Estate #8 
  • White Laid Texture Estate #4 
  • Cream Laid Texture Estate # 9  

You can also use the handy table above to see which sticker materials are best for writing on. 


How Long Do Stickers Last? 

When stored properly and at the right temperature, most stickers can last for 1-2 years without being used. Vinyl stickers, on the other hand, can last up to 5 years.  

UPrinting stickers come with permanent adhesive backing that sticks to almost any surface. The adhesive hardens over time, giving the stickers the best adhesion the longer they are set. However, textured and curved surfaces reduce the tack from the adhesive. We recommend placing stickers on flat and smooth surfaces for the best results.   

Make your message last a long time with long-lasting stickers. Order custom stickers today and get them in 1-3 business days.
