Metallic Stickers


Shine with metallic sticker printing.

Metallic sticker printing lets you create incredible stickers that really make an impression. Metallic sticker printing uses the Akuafoil process, which involves layering CMYK colors on silver ink. This allows the creation of striking gradients, semitones or any imaginable hue with a metallic shimmer. Metallic stickers give a glittering sheen to any sticker design, drawing the eye and making your message even more compelling.

You can print metallic stickers with an accent on any part of your stickers. Use these metallic highlights to create a more powerful call-to-action or breathe new life into your logo. Our custom stickers are cut-to-size in dimensions as small as 2" x 2" to as large as 6" x 9".

They are popular with small to large scale businesses that want a special shine in their promotional materials, as well as with visual artists for memorable giveaways.

How to Prepare Your Metallic Sticker Artwork File

Custom printing metallic stickers is a great way to call attention to your brand. Here are some suggestions that will help you create eye-catching designs using any design software:  


  • Create two layers in your file: one for CMYK and another for the mask layer. The mask layer is where you will indicate the metallic accents in your design.  
  • Make sure that both layers align with one another. To ensure correct placement, you can download one of our print templates in your chosen file format.  
  • Use light colors on the metallic areas. Gradients and semi-tones may not show up in darker colors. Also, lighter colors tend to reflect more light and make the design more striking.  
  • Choose a sans serif font in 12 pt. or larger so that your brand name or message will stand out. Smaller font sizes may not be readable in the printed design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color quality wasn’t that great. The stickers came out a much darker than I’d have hoped but overall still an ok product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, poor color quality control This is the second time making a sticker purchase thru uprinting. Both the stickers have different colors and when asking for the color correction, I was told by the representative "we don't guarantee color in production". Unfortunately, due to the non-matching colors of the stickers I have received, it is hard to get a sense of high-end. The product is great and may be worth taking a leap of faith if you arnt so picky with how your products come out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not metallic The file was printed incorrectly leaving all areas intended to be "metallic" as straight black. When I contacted customer service they apologized and said they could only give me a $50 credit towards my next order! Now I have 1000 stickers that don't even make good paper weights

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware if using white This is completely misrepresented by product image. DO NOT PURCHASE if you're expecting white (metallic/silver). I believe this is achievable by setting up a white backing to that layer but that was not in the instructions, proof, and support was misleading.
