Die Cut Labels VS. Kiss Cut Labels

The main differences between these two cut options, comes down to the paper backing on each label.

For a more elaborate explanation, please visit our helpful blog article Die-cut vs Kiss-cut: A Simple Guide.

Die-Cut Sticker

Die-Cut

Die-cut means that we are cutting through both the vinyl label material and the paper backing. This cut type doesn't leave any material around the sticker. Another way to look at it is to think of it like a "cookie cutter." Your labels are all individually cut out to the contour of your design, so you have individually cut labels with no paper material around the design.

* Please note, back slit (crack and peel) is only available on labels 3" x 3" up to 12" x 12". *

If selected on sizes larger than 12" x 12" your labels will not be backslit

Kiss-Cut Sticker

Kiss-Cut

Kiss-cut means we are only cutting through the vinyl layer ("label material") and not cutting through the paper backing, leaving a paper material border around your label. When you choose a kiss-cut label, you will have extra material around your label for easy peeling.

Clear Window Label Artwork Specification

Preferred Files for Printing

Clear Label & Window Cling Guidelines

  • Vector artwork is required: EPS, AI, and PDF
  • Please indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

When submitting these files, make sure you convert all fonts to outlines or curves to ensure they print correctly and the fonts are not substituted. 

File Tips

  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size product you are ordering 
  • Convert all text to outlines 
  • Only Allow for bleed if necessary
  • Never flatten/merge layers in a PSD file
  • Indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

Vector Art

Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in key line mode you can see the points or vectors when connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between the vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution. 

Raster Art

Raster images consist of colored squares, called pixels. They are created by combining a series of various colored pixels. Digital photographs are made up of pixels. If you view a raster image at 200% or more you are able to see the individual pixels that make up the image. Raster images are dependent upon resolution so image enlargement is limited by the individual size at which the file was created. If a file is produced at a size that is larger than its resolution will allow, the quality will decrease. Printing a low resolution file will result in pixelation. Individual pixels are large enough to be easily discernable. Increasing the resolution will not solve this problem is there are not enough pixels to begin with. The program will add more pixels based upon the estimation of their location and will then assign their neighboring pixels's color value. This may cause an image to look muddy. 

If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:

  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
  • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended

Design Services

If you are not able to provide us with a print ready artwork, we do have a vectorizing/recreating service available. Most logos or images can be recreated for $70. Artwork design service discounts may apply.  Please contact a sales representative today for more details.

This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions Return to Top

What exactly is a clear label?

A clear label is a transparent vinyl label that can be applied on interior or exterior surfaces. Because it is printed on a clear vinyl material it will show clearly on any area(s) your graphic isn’t showing.

What material is used to make your clear labels?

We print our clear labels on a 4 mml transparent vinyl material designed for both interior and exterior applications. This unique material gives you the option to choose from either a front adhesive or back adhesive, giving you more control over how you want to apply this label to your window or other intended surfaces.

How do I know where my label will be clear?

Your transparent label will show clear on any area(s) your graphic isn’t showing. So the portion of your graphic that will remain clear largely depends on what you are printing. If you are designing a clear label with our online designer, then it is important to let us know specifically where you want your label to appear transparent in the order notes.

Can I use colors, fonts and images in my design?

Yes! Because we digitally print our clear labels in full color you will not be charged any extra cost for multiple colors, fonts, or imagery.The only time color will affect your price is if you request a color match proof. If you need a color match proof, please contact us to speak with one of our friendly customer service reps!

Do your clear labels have a glossy or matte finish?

Only our ‘Back Adhesive’ clear label option is available in either gloss or matte finish.

How small or large can my clear labels be?

Our transparent labels have a minimum print width and height of 2” and have a max print width and height of 8".

Can I get samples?

We offer samples in packets so you can experience all of our materials. Fill out the sample request form to get started.

What is the lifespan of your high quality clear labels?

Our transparent labels have a 3 plus year lifespan when properly installed and cared for.

Can I place my clear label on the inside of my window and have it be visible on the outside?

Yes, we offer both back adhesive and front adhesive options for your clear label. If you would like to place your clear label on the inside of your window and have the graphic visible to passersby on the outside, then please select the ‘Front Adhesive’ product option. This is possible with our clear window clings product as well.

Common Uses

What are some common uses for clear labels?

These labels are commonly used to label products, equipment, machinery, windows, doors, vehicles, and trailers. DIYs commonly use clear labeling for unnumbered amounts of home projects, like canning and seasonal decorating as well.

What surfaces can clear labels be placed on?

Clear labels adhere best when placed on smooth, non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal, plastic, smooth or painted drywall, and tile. We do not recommend placing these labels on brick, concrete, or any rough or porous surface as they will not properly adhere.

Are your custom clear labels repositionable?

No. Our clear labels are meant as a permanent option. We do not recommend moving your transparent label once it has been placed.

If you are looking for a removable clear label solution, then we suggest trying one of our clear window cling products.  Window clings use low tack adhesive allowing you to apply and reposition them several times.
