1. Die cut stickers
When choosing custom stickers, you can pick your shape as well as size. Die cut stickers are the most versatile option there is. Die cut simply means that your sticker is individually cut in any shape.
This can be a traditional shape like square or round, or even a cut line that follows the shape of your design. With die cut stickers, there are no limits to your creativity, allowing you to find your ideal shape.
On top of that, die cut stickers make perfect giveaways. As they are individually cut, you can easily hand them out at events or exhibitions, or even include them with every order. Then, it is up to your customers to put your stickers to use. Just imagine how many people your design can reach when it is used as a laptop sticker by one of your customers.
2. White vinyl stickers
White vinyl is the most popular material choice because it works for thousands of different applications. This material withstands scratches, water and sunlight, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor uses.
While this product is usually called white vinyl, it does not mean that you will be stuck with a white stickers. Custom vinyl stickers work with a white base to create vibrant, opaque colors with incredible details. This makes this material the perfect choice for any design and color combination.
If in doubt, white vinyl stickers are a risk-free choice that will work for multiple purposes, from product packaging to in-house branding.
3. Effect labels
Are you after a more eye-catching material to market a specific product line or celebrate a new release? Effect material can be the perfect add-on to such a campaign. Like white vinyl stickers, these materials have a vinyl base. However, this base is not white, but already comes with effects.
These effects reach from stunning glitter and holographic materials, allowing you to create beautiful metallic colors, to fluorescent stickers or clear labels. Sticker printing companies can manipulate these effects to create your desired results.
You can either work with the effect base or print a color over it to create a colored effect. When white is printed behind your color of choice, the effect disappears, allowing you to choose which parts of your designs you would like to highlight.
4. Eco-friendly materials
Traditionally, stickers and labels are associated with plastic. However, the sticker printing industry has moved on and now also offers eco-friendly materials. Perfect for branding your sustainable or environmentally conscious business.
There are a variety of materials you can choose from. Bio-plastics, made from sustainably sourced wood pulp, are scratch resistant and can be used as product labels. You can choose between a white or transparent base to create your desired outcome.
Another option you can choose is biodegradable paper. We love this material because it is thick and has natural matte finish, giving your product that premium feeling while still being fully compostable.
