Die Cut Stickers
Our die-cut stickers come contour-cut around any simple custom shape you provide in your design file. The contour cutting capability allows us to cut the stickers into a simple finished shape that you can lift off from the backing and apply as a single sticker to any smooth flat surface. Shapes that come to mind include company logos, emblems, symbols, sports characters and mascots (with and without team names), player names, web addresses, and the like. Your entire design will be cut around its perimeter to create a single piece contour cut sticker with the shape closely following your design. If your design file includes a vector shape layer, you’ll be in full control of the cutting shape, and can get a specific form and shape you need. The stickers come on sheets of vinyl ready for peel and stick, either individually on the sheet or combined several per sheet for smaller sizes to maximize production.
Our standard die-cut stickers are ready for indoor and moderate outdoor use. With optional clear luster laminate, these stickers last outdoors for up to five years, withstanding harsh UV, weather, cold, hot, scratch, and abrasive conditions. This makes them the perfect sticker for rear windows and emblems, sports equipment personalization and team stickers.
Printed in the high-resolution mode on high definition eco-solvent printers, our laminated stickers provide the sharpest detail even down to a 3pt text, with rich colors and smooth gradients, with no pixelation or blur. Our printers use an 8 color ink set for amazingly vibrant color at 1440 DPI print resolution.
Stickers are printed on 3M brand gloss calendered vinyl, are water and UV proof, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. 3M gloss vinyl features strong, permanent adhesive that provides excellent adhesion to most standard surfaces and is considered non-removable, meaning that the sticker will create a semi-permanent bond to the surface it was applied to and may not be possible to remove without damaging the sticker itself or the application surface. It is advised and a full customer responsibility to test the application surface and make your own determination if it is appropriate for sticker use.
Optionally, stickers can be laminated with intermediate 3M Luster Laminate applied, for added UV & Water resistance, with very strong resistance to chemicals, solvents, and abrasion. The ink set UV fade resistance is further expanded by the lamination process ensuring that color won’t fade for up to 5 years of use under normal conditions.
By default, this product comes contour cut into the single die-cut shape you included in your design. Custom shape stickers are contour cut around your desired shape, and come combined few per sheet to maximize the efficiency of production. Stickers are available from a minimum size of 2x2-inches all the way up to 12x12-inch size, entered as Height x Width in inches.
Custom shape cutting is only available if you provide a vector contour shape for cutting in your file. Unless included in your design file, contour cutting is not possible. Please follow our file setup instructions that include necessary steps to create vector cut shape for cutting.
Bleeds are required for all die cut and contour cut stickers. Use 0.125 bleeds all the way around every cut path. All custom cut orders missing the bleeds will be rejected. For more details on bleed setup, please see our Die-Cut File Setup Guide or contact us directly.
