HOW WE MAKE CUSTOM VINYL STICKERS
Custom vinyl stickers are incredibly popular due to their great look, durability and relatively low cost.
Whether you’re turning your company logo into a sticker for promotional giveaways or getting a roll of sticker labels done up for packaging, there’s no denying how simple and effective of a marketing tool custom vinyl stickers can be.
Let’s look at the process of how we make your custom vinyl stickers…
ESTABLISH STICKER CONCEPT
First, the purpose of the sticker must be known because that will shape all other decisions involved with your custom sticker order.
We will offer insight as to how we can most effectively layout your sticker design within our cutting edge design and print studio.
Different purposes will have different needs when it comes to size, shape, specialty films and quantity so it’s important this is discussed first.
Once the purpose of the sticker is known and the basic variables like size and shape are established, next comes the fun part; designing the sticker.
Here is where the specific colors, look and vibe of the sticker are brought to life.
If the custom sticker is being created for a business then it should match the same colors and fonts as the business for branding consistency.
If you’re working with a professional sticker printing business like Sticker-It, the design will be set up using a top of the line Adobe suite graphic design software and sent your way for approval prior to being moved into the print phase.
We will ensure that everything is consistent with the best industry standards, resulting in the highest quality print ready artwork.
As part of the design process, we offer several specialty films to help add a little something extra to the look of your sticker including:
- Chrome mirror
- Silver metallic
There’s nothing in the realm of sticker printing we cannot offer. We will help make sure you get the exact right sticker for its intended purpose.
Now let’s talk about the real magic. The science and technology behind vinyl sticker printing has come a long way.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is made into large, flat sheets before a pressure sensitive adhesive is applied on one side, forming the surface where your stickers will be printed.
To better serve our customers, we offer both solvent and UV printed products and we make sure to stock full colour and specialty rolls of vinyl.
Years ago the best way to create custom shaped stickers with vinyl was to use metal dies. They were heavy, expensive, dangerous, time consuming and didn’t offer a lot of options since each unique shape would need to be manufactured into a precast die.
Nowadays, thanks to the modern cutting technology Sticker-It has invested in, the sticker printing process is done using digitally controlled knives and high speed lasers.
This means we can print stickers of any size and any shape imaginable and we can do it much faster and cost effectively than ever before.
