Stickers printed on white non-weatherproof paper are produced on a flexographic printing press with a minimum quantity of 500 stickers. Your stickers are printed in 1, 2 or 3 Pantone inks and on your choice of a large variety of standard square, rectangular, circle and oval shapes and sizes.
Non-weatherproof paper stickers provide an affordable way to brand your retail products, envelopes, hang tags or shopping bags
We offer 2 white stocks on this option; white gloss or white litho. Litho is print jargon meaning uncoated with a matte appearance and is the best choice for stickers that will be written on or stamped.
STAFF TIP - square and rectangle flexo stickers are pre-cut with a slightly rounded corner. If your design requires "square-cut" corners, please ask us for a custom quote and we will get you pricing asap!
Square and Rectangle Stickers Have Rounded Corners
Due to the method of cutting, all square and rectangle stickers have rounded corners with a radius of 1/8" (0.125"). Square cut corners are available as a custom quote, however cost is higher due to additional steps in the cutting process.
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.
