Labels are your chance to impress - for your brand marketing, jars in your kitchen, or even just to add a little jazz to your wedding invitations. Designing and manufacturing custom stickers and labels has never been easier, and, here at Stickershop, the possibilities are endless. From our range of shapes such as round, square, rectangle, oval, and custom, to our variety of materials such as white waterproof vinyl, premium paper, and fluorescent vinyl, there’s no limit to what you can personalise and bring to life.
We often get asked on a daily basis about the process of creating personalised stickers and labels. So, in order to get you on the right track, we’ve put together an expert guide to help you through the processes step by step so that it is uncomplicated, purposive, and even fun!
1. Choosing your shape and size
Mostly depending on the intended use of the stickers or labels, the shape and size of your customised creations are the first aspect to decide on. Just remember that if you're wanting to be cost-effective, you may want to steer clear of any custom shaping or die-cutting, and stick to common sticker shapes such a rectangle, square, or circle.
2. Choosing your material
Perhaps you're wanting to make an illuminating impression with fluorescent stickers, or a showy, bold finish with our metallic choices, or you may even want to invest in a weather proof, durable material such as our vinyl, which are also readily recyclable - one of the most environmentally friendly options around! In any case, there's no limit to your options, and you should keep your product and its purpose in mind when choosing your material. We do strongly suggest testing the material prior to placing your order as we want you to be completely happy with your choice so don't forget to check out our free sample packs. Please note these are currently suspended during the current pandemic.
3. Choosing your text
Have you ever noticed how the majority of stickers and labels are usually designed when it comes to the text element? Whether it's on the produce you pass daily in the aisles of the supermarket, or from promotional stickers handed out at events, the text is always used sparingly. Sometimes, only a logo is necessary in order to attract the attention of your audience, although this is mostly used by major recognisable brands such as Coca-Cola or Santa Cruz. During your design phase, ensuring the text component, including the sizing and font, exudes your brand values is paramount and should not be overlooked.
4. Creating your personalised stickers and labels
After the above steps, the only process left is to lay down your design and get to the printing part! One of the advantages of using our services at Stickershop is that our friendly team will always check over your artwork and send you a sample before the print run goes ahead. Not only is this beneficial for you to give a final sign off, but having that extra pair of eyes on the creation process you’ve spent hours and hours on is essential and can minimise any disappointment.
If the above hasn't settled your questions or concerns when it comes to creating your own personalised stickers and labels, we can also help with any of your artwork queries so please don't hesitate to get in touch. Your labels are waiting to be printed so be sure to speak with a member of our team today to get going!
