Vinyl sticker sheets with multiple stickers printed in individual custom shapes provide an excellent way to create fun and original promotional decals for your brand.
These stickers sheets are printed in full colour on weatherproof gloss or matte vinyl with a permanent adhesive ready for indoor and outdoor use and peel away from the main sheet with ease.
Multiple sticker sheets are printed on individual sheets as large as 11" x 11" with as many sticker designs as you can fit. The smallest size of a custom shape sticker is 1/2" x 1/2" and we need at least a 1/4" margin between each unique design.
There Are Some Limitations
Individual stickers need to be at least 1" x 1" and at least 0.25" apart from each other.
Be Sure to See a Proof
We strongly recommend seeing a printed proof of your artwork. Due to the nature of the Eco-Solvent printing, some colours have a grainy appearance. Requesting and viewing a proof is the only way to preview and be sure you are okay with the results prior to printing. Any projects ordered without a proof will not be eligible for a reprint due to colour or quality expectations.
What Type of Surfaces?
Our stickers adhere to non-porous, non-textured, smooth surfaces, such as painted surfaces, metal, smooth sanded or finished wood, lacquered surfaces, glass, painted fiberglass, plastic, other vinyl, and leather. Surfaces like vinyl and leather that have been treated with Armor All or any other oily type substance must be thoroughly cleaned before application.
Will These Stick to Plastics?
Although they use a permanent adhesive, these stickers don't stick to 'Low Energy Surfaces' which can include some types of plastics. We recommend testing some samples prior to ordering to ensure these labels will work for your use.
These Stickers Are Weather Resistant
Although these stickers are weather resistant, they will fade over time in the sun and when exposed to friction. If you need fully weatherproof stickers, please ask us for a custom quote of our Flexographic Printed Weatherproof Stickers.
These Stickers May Shrink Slightly on the Backing
Overtime stickers printed with bleed and especially those with heavy ink coverage may shrink slightly. You may notice uneven edges when the stickers are still on the backing. However, the edges will still be straight when applied.
