Does this work for Cut Vinyl Lettering?
Window stickers are cut as 1 continous sticker, and do not work as individually cut Vinyl Lettering.
Custom Shapes Must Be Simple
Custom shape stickers need to be a simpler or non-complex shape. Sharp curves or tight spacing is not achievable using this cutting method. If looking for inside cut, please ask us for a custom quote.
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 weahterproof 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.
Backing Edges May Be a Bit Rough
Due to the way these are trimmed out into single stickers, you may see some roughness to the edges o the stickers. We try to minimize as much as possible. However, due to the method of trimming, it is unavoidable. If this is a concern, we recommend either our Flexographic Anyshape labels available as a custom quote.
