With so many sticker choices available, it can be confusing when all you want is to print your design. Hence it's important to understand the different types and materials to make an informed decision about your sticker printing. In this blog post, we'll explore the various types and materials we have available.
When it comes to sticker types, there is a huge variety to choose from, with each offering unique features and functions. Here are some popular sticker types we offer and their details:
Placed on A4 sticker sheets, the design is printed and duplicated on the entire page.
1. Paper Sticker Sheets
Made from paper, they are commonly used indoors as product labels or packaging. Paper stickers are also easy to write on and have different finishes such as matte (simili sticker) or glossy (mirrorcoat sticker). They are also cost-effective so if you require a simple sticker label printed in bulk, this is the best option.
2. PP Sticker Sheets
PP stickers are waterproof and tear-resistant, making them suitable for a variety of purposes, including product labels, food packaging, cosmetic labels etc. It’s also our most popular sticker option and offers the most value for money.
3. Clear Sticker Sheets
These are transparent stickers with the same material as our PP sticker sheets. Being see-through, they allow the background to show through the sticker design and show a seamless appearance when applied to surfaces, creating a ‘no-label’ look. It’s important to note that we do not print white colour and any design printed will not have a fully solid background.
4. Kraft Paper Sticker Sheets
Our kraft paper stickers are made from natural brown material and are often used for organic or eco-friendly packaging. As they convey a rustic and environmentally conscious message. Like most paper materials, they are not water-resistant. With their brown colour, any design printed on them will appear darker so it’s important to keep this in mind when designing.
5. Silver Sticker Sheets
Silver stickers have a shiny, reflective surface and are tear-resistant & water-resistant. Their striking appearance makes them a good choice for any products requiring a premium look.
Printed and delivered in roll form, they are separated into smaller sticker rolls (sizes between 1 - 3 cm) and standard sticker rolls. They are suitable for large quantities and can be machine dispensed.
1. Simile Sticker: Paper sticker with a natural feel and matte surface.
2. Mirrorcoat Sticker: Paper sticker with a glossy surface.
3. PP (Polypropylene) Sticker: Sticker with firm base and glossy feel. Waterproof and removable, making them suitable for fridges & freezers.
