Print on the Back

Want your print on the backside of stickers?

We can’t print on the back of a sticker, but we can print on the liner backing. It is a custom quote, so you’ll have to speak with one of our sticker experts for pricing.

250 stickers

Can you print just 10 stickers?

Most of our products start with no minimum order requirement for stickers per design. There are different minimum orders on our different products, so let’s discuss what product you require to determine the minimum order.

No Sticky Residue

Can these stickers be quickly removed without leaving any residue?

All of our stickers, printed labels and custom decals will leave some residue, even the removable or repositionable adhesive. The longer the sticker, label or custom decal is on the side, the potential for residue being left behind grows. However, with a little elbow grease and all-purpose cleaner, you should be able to remove the adhesive.

Custom Stickers

How much do your stickers price?

That all depends on the artwork, size, shape, material and quantity you’re looking for. You can get official digital pricing at Stickerszone.co.uk, or for anything else, you can get custom pricing from one of our custom sticker experts.

Best Price Point

What’s the best price point?

That’s a tricky question to answer. It always will depend on the variety of product, the size, shape, and quantity you’re ordering. And with all of our products, the higher the number, the lower the unit price.

Discounts on Stickers

Do I get a bigger discount if I order a higher quantity?

We currently offer discounts to returning buyers and occasionally send out exclusive email offers. Our pricing is structured with different cost breakpoints, so the unit cost on higher quantity orders is less than the unit cost on lower quantities.

Customer Discounts

Do you offer a first-time customer discount?

We don’t currently suggest a special first-time discount, however, we do offer return customer discounts, which are adjusted completely the year based on certain advancements. Sign up for our newsletter or follows us on social media to get the most up to date improvements.

Do You Accept Purchase Orders

Do you accept Buying Orders (PO’s)?

We currently handle payment when the order is placed, so we don’t accept buying orders that get paid at a later date. Feel free to contact us about this.

Terms

Can you give me terms?

We do not offer terms because we don’t have an Accounts Receivable Department to handle and manage term payments. However, if you have been doing business with us for a long period of time and demand terms from your Customer Service Agent, they may be able to get approval to extend terms to you. It is then their responsibility to collect and manage payments. If payments are not managed within the Net 30-time frame, we may have to revoke your terms.

Next Day Pickup

We can split ship, there are extra costs compared with split ships. And we can blind ship, just let us know that’s what you need.

Build Your Final Files in Adobe Illustrator

What size should I build my final artwork in Illustrator or Photoshop?

When building your data, please make the data page size .25” larger in the height and width. This will account for the .125” bleed needed on all surfaces for perfect trimming. Do not worry about putting in trim marks, colour bars, etc. Our prepress staff will take care of those items for you and send you an electronic proof to approve prior to printing.

Rich Black

Should I use flat black or rich black when designing my project?

Making rich blacks can attach a great look to a piece, which also helps during the printing method as well. The rich black makes we use is 40C 30M 20Y 100K.

Send Files to SticketGiant

How do I send my files to StickerGiant?

We offer the facility to upload files directly to our website or you can email them to us. Yet, when files are bigger than 25MB, we advise using a service like Hightail or DropBox.

Color Matching with Full Color Printing is Possible

Can you match the colour you see in my image?

Yes, we can use products with spot colours and we can match Pantone colours. With our digital 4 colour method stickers, we can get to within 95% accuracy on colour matching.

PMS Match

Can you match PMS colours?

We can print Pantone inks for a small extra cost. If we’re printing a full-colour method product, we can colour match to a Pantone colour, which will be a very close representation of the Pantone ink, but not a correct match.

Adjust artwork

Can you create adjustments or add bleed to my artwork?

We can make most adjustments required to almost any artwork. Learn about our easy artwork guidelines.

Will the ink run off in the rain

Will the ink runoff in the rain?

Largest of our stickers either come with a lamination or are screen printed, in which matter, they’re water resistant.

Can you match my colors

Why didn’t my colour come out like I wanted (demanded)?

Whether the artwork is a Pantone spot colour or a colour made of cyan, magenta, yellow and black – there are a few methods in getting colour to print the way it is demanded. The colour makes it a file are not always represented perfectly on a computer, or device monitor, because all monitors are calibrated uniquely. The colour makes in your file might be set up to print CMYK (4-colour method), even though you needed to print a specific Pantone colour. There are some colours printed in CMYK (4-colour method) that have the tendency to shift slightly when printed, blues and reds tend to shift more than yellows, greens or browns; unless, we have a particular Pantone colour that we are aiming to print. The more particular on what type of colour make you need for a custom sticker design, the more correct the printing will be.

Your Beer Here

Can you print a label for a beer bottle?

Completely. In fact, we have some really cool can and bottle label items. Brewers love utilising our stickers for their growlers and different types of product management. There’s nothing like getting your branding accurate on a label that travels far and wide.

How four color process works

Your quote says 4-color process but my design has 8 colours. Does that mean you won’t print some of the colours in my design? Which ones?

The 4-colour method does print with only 4 inks, however, the way that the patterns are built with those 4-colours allows us to print just about every colour available, and should see just like a full-colour image, so all of the colours in your design will print.

How many colors can I have in a design

How many colours can I have in my design?

The maximum number of colours that we can print depends on the type of stock we’re printing. There are limitations on the number of colours if we’re printing spot colours. However, the maximum number of visible colours that we can print with our full-colour method is fairly unlimited. The patterns of the 4-colour process allow us to print just about every colour available.

What margins should I use

Is a 1/8 inch margin and inset important? Is there any wiggle room?

After a lot of sticker printing, we’ve decided that having the 1/8″ margin is a standard we can support not having anything cut off of your picture. There is a small bounce of the material through the press & cutting tools and we’re confident in the 1/8″ margin. If we wiggle any with that margin, we’re not able to support your image will not get cut off.

Spot colors versus process colors

“Spot” colours versus Method colours, what’s the difference?

Spot colours are pre-mixed inks and only apply one ink fountain. Method colours are four ink colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), which are printed commonly on one sheet in a distinct pattern that allows the eye to see thousands of shades of colours. There are quality and price advantages to utilising method colours and utilising spot colours, depending on the job.

CMYK color mode

Should my print files be sent in CMYK or RGB mode?

All print data should be in CMYK mode as this is the mode needed for the printing method. If we receive data in RGB mode, we’ll require to convert them to CMYK, which may shift the colours some.

Your Shape Here

Are your custom stickers opaque?

While stickers can be a choice for covering up information, the white polypropylene material we use is not 100% opaque. If you need an opaque sticker, just let us know.
