As stickers are intended to leave a lasting impression, it is important to make your design appealing and relatable to your audience. Whether they will be handed out as promotional items or as gifts, you must carefully consider the layout and specs to ensure that they are appropriate for the intended application. After all, you do not want your stickers to be left unused just because they have an unattractive look. This can be avoided by asking yourself the following questions:
1. Why do I need custom printed stickers?
Stickers are used in a number of ways. Some stickers are placed on car windows while others are used for packaging and promotions. The quantity, material, size and finish will vary depending on your requirements. A good sticker printing company, like StickerShop, will help you choose among a range of options to match your specific needs.
2. What should be the shape of my sticker?
If you have a great design and you want it to really stand out, a die-cut sticker would be best for you. Die-cut or custom-shaped stickers have clean and consistent edges contoured to the shape of your design. Die-cut stickers also have the ability to make ordinary designs noticeable. However, if you are on a budget, standard shaped stickers can be used as there is no need to create a custom pattern. Standard shapes such as squares, rectangles and circles can complement any design, regardless of size.
3. What's my budget?
Before placing your order, you need to consider your budget first. This will determine what materials will be used to print your custom stickers. If you have a large budget allotted for printing, you can choose high-end materials and finishes that are weatherproof and tear-proof. While they may be a little pricey, they are durable and can last for a long time.
4. What should be the quality of prints?
You may be tempted to avail inexpensive sticker printing services but keep in mind that this may affect your brand's reputation.
If you want to take care of your brand, avoid low-quality sticker prints. Poorly made stickers will not give you the best return on investment that high standard stickers offer. What you initially thought was cost-effective can end up being more expensive in the long run.
5. Should I choose sheet or cut-to-size stickers?
Both of these options are great and offer convenience for different reasons. Cut-to-size stickers are already prepped for handing out while rolled stickers will be easier to peel and dispense as they don’t have any loose leaves.
6. Do I need a professional designer?
If you have great Photoshop skills, designing your own stickers won't be an issue. However, amateurs may have to consider getting help from an experienced professional. Graphic artists can create a sticker design for any audience as they have the knowledge and skills to provide you with high-quality layouts.
7. Will I need a professional sticker printing service?
If you need quality sticker prints, you definitely need a professional printing service. Sticker printing at home cannot match the quality of stickers printed by professionals.
