Die Cut Stickers VS. Kiss Cut Stickers

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

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.

Custom 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 Stickers

Stickers are a great way to add a unique touch to many spaces and surfaces. Whether you plan to display your new sticker 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 stickers 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 sticker 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 sticker 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 sticker to form a hinge. Slowly peel away the transfer film from the white backing.

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

Decal Application | Step 5

Step 5:

Apply the Sticker to the Surface

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

Decal Application | Step 6

Step 6:

Remove the Transfer Film

Once you've placed the sticker, 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 sticker.
