Transfer Decal Cut Option

 
Transfer Decal

Transfer Decal

Transfer cut option means that we will be cutting the vinyl decal material to a specified shape, graphic or text and then removing or “picking” any excess or unwanted vinyl material from your design leaving no vinyl background on your decal. We then place a transfer tape over the top of the remaining pieces of vinyl. This tape is what holds all the individual cut pieces of your decal design once you remove the paper backing from your decal. It also allows you to place multiple individual pieces of vinyl decal material on your desired surface cleanly and evenly.

* Vector File (EPS or Ai – Adobe Illustrator) format needed for Transfer Cut decals. *

 

Transfer Cut / Pick Charge

Transfer cut price includes 8 standard picks with a Maximum of 40 picks per sq. foot.

Additional picks are $0.02 to $0.04 per pick depending on difficulty/intricacy.

Intricately cut decals will be custom quoted based on difficulty and time required to pick.

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

Product Information

What is a transfer decal?

A transfer decal is a sticker consisting of multiple individually cut pieces of vinyl, leaving no vinyl background material. A layer of transfer tape is then placed over the top of your decal in order to hold it together when you transfer your decal to its desired surface, such as a window, laptop, water bottle, vehicle or piece of equipment. 

All of our transfer decals consist of 3 layers of material. 

  1. The first layer is the paper backing of the vinyl material. 
  2. The second layer is the vinyl decal material itself 
  3. The third layer is the transfer tape, this is placed over the top of your decal design. 

This tape is what holds all the individual pieces of your decal design together once you remove the paper backing from your decal. It also allows you to place multiple individual pieces of vinyl decal material on your desired surface cleanly and evenly. 

What is transfer tape?

Transfer tape, also referred to as transfer paper,application tape or “pre-mask” transfer tape is a paper or plastic film that is placed on the top of a vinyl sticker or decal material to hold all of the individual design pieces together in order to make it easier to apply your decal.  Once you apply your transfer decal to its desired surface, simply peel away the transfer tape to reveal your decal.

What material is used for your transfer decal?

We offer two vinyl material options for your transfer decals. Our standard vinyl material is made from a calendered vinyl material with an outdoor durability of 3 to 5 years when properly applied and maintained.

If you are looking for something more durable, we recommend our high-performance vinyl material which is made from a cast vinyl material that has up to an 8 year outdoor durability lifespan when properly applied and maintained.

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

Yes! Because we digitally print our transfer decals in full color you will not be charged anything additional 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 transfer decals have a glossy or matte finish?

Our transfer decals come in both a gloss or matte finish. 

How small or large can my transfer decal be?

Transfer decals have a minimum print width and height of 3” and have a max print width of 52" and a max print height of 120" anything larger than 52" wide will require your decal to be printed in panels.

Will my design impact the pricing of my transfer decal?

Colors, fonts, and images will not affect the pricing of your transfer decal. The only factors that will impact the price of your decal are the size and quantity you order and whether 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!

What is the lifespan of your transfer decals?

The lifespan of our standard vinyl material option is 3 to 5 year outdoor durability when properly applied and maintained. 

The lifespan of our high-performance material option is up to 8 years when properly applied and maintained.
