Design Methods

Design from Scratch

With our easy to use online designer, you can quickly design your custom business sticker. Just upload your QR code file from your computer.

Upload a File

If you decide to upload an original file, instead of designing your own, you will need to upload an .eps file. This ensures that you will receive the highest quality QR code stickers possible! Once you have added your product to your cart and select your shipping method, a proof will be emailed to you. When you approve your proof and make a payment, your order will be complete.

Payment

All orders must be paid up front prior to being put into production. We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. We also accept checks, which must be received prior to your business stickers being put into production. 

Live Order Tracking

Back in the early days of making stickers, we built a system called Live Order Tracking that enables our customers to track their order through every stage of our streamlined process, from order placement to delivery.

Live Order Tracking Icons

After placing your order for business stickers, you’ll receive a unique Live Order Tracking number via email that will allow you to track your QR code stickers every step of the way. Need the current status of your order? Just click the link in the email and get the most recent updates from our dynamic Live Order Tracking system.

Die Cut Stickers VS. Kiss Cut Stickers

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

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 sticker 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 stickers are all individually cut out to the contour of your design, so you have individually cut stickers with no paper material around the design.

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

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

Kiss-Cut Sticker

Kiss-Cut

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

QR Code Sticker Artwork Specifications

Preferred Files for Printing

The maximum file size we accept is 100 MB. Our preferred file types are:

  • Adobe Illustrator EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
  • PDF (Adobe PDF)

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. 

Additional Files Accepted

  • JPG (High Resolution JPEG)
  • TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)
  • PNG (High Resolution PNG)

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.

How to Apply Vinyl Decals

Decals are a great way to add a unique touch to many spaces and surfaces. Whether you plan to display your new decal on your car, laptop, living-room wall, or anywhere else, proper installation is crucial for creating a strong bond that lasts long and looks great. That's why we've put together this guide that teaches you how to apply decals in just six easy steps.

Decal Application | Step 1

Step 1:

Tools Needed

Scissors Paper Towels
Masking Tape Tape Measure
Plastic Applicator Squeegee or Credit Card Warm Water or Other Common Household Cleaning Item
Decal Application | Step 2

Step 2:

Clean the Surface

The first order of business before you apply your decal is to make sure the surface is clean and dry. Any dirt, debris, or moisture can weaken the adhesion. Use warm water and soap, rubbing alcohol, or other common household items for a good clean. Be sure to wipe away any left-over cleaning product or residue with a dry cloth before moving on to the next step.

Decal Application | Step 3

Step 3:

Tape & Measure

Before you peel away the backing, tape your decal down on the surface where you intend to apply it. Measure and adjust to make sure it is centered and straight.

Decal Application | Step 4

Step 4:

Remove the Transfer Film from the Backing

Run a long piece of tape across the top of the decal to form a hinge. Slowly peel away the transfer film from the white backing.

With smaller decals, you can peel away the entire backing. For larger decals, it may be best to peel away the first portion and apply the decal to the surface as you peel away the rest of the backing.

Decal Application | Step 5

Step 5:

Apply the Decal to the Surface

While holding the bottom end of the decal away from the surface. At the top of the decal, apply pressure with a plastic applicator squeegee or credit card. Start from the center of the decal and, with a scraping-like motion, work your way outward left to right, working your way down the decal.

Decal Application | Step 6

Step 6:

Remove the Transfer Film

Once you've placed the decal, slowly remove the transfer film and press down any loose pieces and work out any air bubbles

Decal Application | Step 7

Step 7:

Enjoy!

Now you can remove the transfer film and enjoy your freshly placed decal.

Product Information

What are QR Codes?

Similar to the well-known barcode, QR codes have been around since 1994. And you have probably seen them many times since then. They were invented by Japanese auto manufacturer Denso Wave and were used to track vehicle parts.

This code is a two dimensional version of the standard barcode that is able to display a wide variety of information instantly with a scan of a mobile device. With the ability to store up to 4,296 characters, with the addition of special characters, the code can encode words and numbers such as a website URL or phone number.

The structure of the code is shown above. As more data is added to the code, the inner structure (aka data keys) of the code becomes more complex and increases in size. And the neat thing about QR codes is that these data keys have duplications within the inner structure. This allows for up to 30% of the code to be damaged before scanners cannot read it anymore.

What material are your stickers made from?

We offer two vinyl material options for your custom QR code stickers. Our removable vinyl material is made from a low tack vinyl and ithas a 1 to 3 year outdoor durability lifespan when properly applied and maintained. 

If you are looking for something more durable, then we recommend our permanent vinyl material. Made from a calendered vinyl material with an outdoor durability of 3 to 5 years when properly applied and maintained.

Top 5 Reasons to Design and Order QR Code Stickers

  1. Much more efficient
    • With the advent of “dynamic QR codes”, businesses now have the ability to be much more efficient. Dynamic QR codes are QR codes that lead a user to a link that can be updated. In the case of a restaurant owner, dynamic QR codes give the owner the ability to change their entire menu with the click of a button. No need to replace wasteful or expensive physical menus.

  2. QR codes are becoming more popular every day

    • In the last 18 or so months, QR codes have seen a dramatic increase in usage. According to CNBC, they have seen an increase in usage of 750%. That is remarkable growth and will certainly lead to changes in how people view QR codes.

  3. Better for the environment if they are replacing physical alternatives such as menus

    • As we all know, deforestation is more of an issue now than it has ever been before. And one of the best ways for any consumer to help reduce their carbon footprint is to reduce the amount of paper that they use. If a restaurant or any other type of service replaces their physical postings, they will be making a big difference.

  4. "Big things in small packages"

    • QR codes are similar to magic wardrobes. They can hold a lot more than what they appear to. Someone could put something as small as a thank you note. Or they could go as big as an entire marketing campaign, all stored within that one QR code. You are only limited by your creativity or imagination.

  5. Enables businesses to be more interactive than ever before

    • QR codes give businesses the ability to store entirely interactive mobile or flash games within a 2"x2" sticker. It goes without saying all the potential a marketing team has with that kind of utility.

How do I Create the QR Code's Design?

It’s super easy! And only a google search away. First, search the internet for a custom QR code generator. We recommend using QR Code Tiger, their QR codes have many cool features and have the ability to be “dynamic” (more on that GAME-CHANGING feature later).

From there, you can enter your URL or link. You will have the option to add anything from YouTube videos, Venmo QR codes, or even your own custom code if you’re feeling up to it.

Then you will want to design the overall look of the QR code itself. From here, you can change the colors of the code, change the look of the data keys, or even add your custom logo to the center of the QR code. Then all you need to do is download it as a PNG, upload it to Decals.com, and then leave the rest to us!

Common Uses

What are some common uses for QR Code Stickers?

An increasingly common use for QR stickers is to apply them to the back of a vehicle. When people are sitting in traffic, passengers become much more interested in whatever is around them. 

These codes can be utilized as digital business cards. Someone can scan your code and instantly view your contact info or store hours. Our high quality stickers are the gateway to your business.

3 Ways to Make your QR Code Stickers More Effective

  1. Make sure that your sticker is placed in a strategic location. This is usually front and center, where your customers or audience can see it.
  2. Add a custom logo in or around the code.
  3. Design your codes to be “dynamic”.

Top 5 Creative Uses for QR Codes

  1. Rear Window for when Sitting in Traffic
    • As mentioned above, this is quickly becoming the most popular way to use QR codes. Sitting in traffic is such an opportune time to present something to anyone, so long as they aren't the one driving! People are looking around and watching other cars all the time in traffic. When they spot your QR code, they might just be inclined to hear what you have to say.
  2. Direct Response Video/Direct Response Marketing
    • Direct Response Marketing, or DRM, is a brand new marketing trend. Very similar to the familiar Direct Marketing, DRM is about talking to your customers/clients directly through something such as an email. But, where DRM differs, is that you are doing something to elicit a desired response from your customers/clients. Let’s say that you’re a marketing firm and you would like to attract some new potential clients. 
    • Using a Direct Marketing approach, you would send email out to people, directly soliciting them for your service. You may get a client here and there, if you pitch it very well.
    • If you were to go with the DRM approach, you would plaster a custom QR code sticker wherever you think people would download. That would link them to a video where you talk about your upcoming webinar where you will be talking about various marketing methods. Don’t forget to also leave the potential client with a sense of urgency by saying that this is a one-time opportunity and that they shouldn’t miss it. 
    • When you finally host the webinar, you will be presented with (hopefully) dozens of new clients, who are specifically interested in what your services offer. 
  3. Promoting Social Media
    • Getting more followers on social media is harder than ever these days. QR code stickers are here to help. Lead more followers to your Instagram QR code by sticking it to the side of your vehicle and then simply let the likes flow.
  4. Enhanced/Cleaned up Packaging
    • Anyone who has ever designed packaging will know, clean space is becoming harder and harder to find. With all the disclaimers and warnings that need to be placed on every package, it has become a monumental task to give packaging a clean look. QR codes can clean everything up by taking any information and giving it to the consumer through a one-time scan of the mobile device. QR codes can also expand the packaging by adding AR assets, more on that in the next section.
  5. 3D Augmented Reality w/ Digital 3D Objects
    • It has become impossible to escape the mention of the Metaverse. The Metaverse is loosely defined as a persistent and interactive online environment (similar to the internet) where people can shop, interact and view each other through devices such as smartphones, VR goggles, and eventually smart glasses. This Metaverse, like the modern internet, will begin with small features such as “Enhanced Packaging”. Enhanced Packaging is adding links to your packaging to digitally add visual flair or experiences to your package accessed through smartphones or VR goggles. The links, or portals, people will use to interact with the metaverse will be, you guessed it, QR CODES!
