Die-Cut Stickers vs. Kiss-Cut Stickers

Die-cut means that we are cutting through the sticker and paper backing, whereas kiss-cut means we are only cutting through the adhesive sticker part.

For more in-depth information about the cut options, please visit our Die-cut vs. Kiss-cut guide.

Die-Cut Bear Sticker | Stickers.com

Die-Cut

Die-cut means that we are cutting through both the vinyl sticker material and the paper backing. This cut type doesn't leave any material around the sticker. Another way to look at it is to think of it like a "cookie cutter." Your stickers are all individually cut out to the contour of your design, so you have individually cut stickers with no paper material around the design.

* Please note – Back Slit (Crack and Peel) is only available on our standard vinyl material option *


Kiss-Cut Bear Sticker | Stickers.com

Kiss-Cut

Kiss-cut means we are only cutting through the vinyl layer ("sticker material") and not cutting through the paper backing, leaving a paper material border around your sticker. When you choose a kiss-cut sticker, you will have extra material around your sticker for easy peeling.

Custom Sticker Artwork Specification

Preferred Files for Printing

The maximum file size we accept is 100 MB. Our preferred file types are:

  • Adobe Illustrator EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
  • PDF (Adobe PDF)

When submitting these files, make sure you convert all fonts to outlines or curves to ensure they print correctly and the fonts are not substituted. 

Additional Files Accepted

  • JPG (High Resolution JPEG)
  • TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)
  • PNG (High Resolution PNG)

File Tips

  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size product you are ordering 
  • Convert all text to outlines 
  • Only Allow for bleed if necessary
  • Never flatten/merge layers in a PSD file
  • Indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

Vector Art

Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in key line mode you can see the points or vectors when connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between the vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution. 

Raster Art

Raster images consist of colored squares, called pixels. They are created by combining a series of various colored pixels. Digital photographs are made up of pixels. If you view a raster image at 200% or more you are able to see the individual pixels that make up the image. Raster images are dependent upon resolution so image enlargement is limited by the individual size at which the file was created. If a file is produced at a size that is larger than its resolution will allow, the quality will decrease. Printing a low resolution file will result in pixelation. Individual pixels are large enough to be easily discernable. Increasing the resolution will not solve this problem is there are not enough pixels to begin with. The program will add more pixels based upon the estimation of their location and will then assign their neighboring pixels's color value. This may cause an image to look muddy. 

If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:

  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
  • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended

Design Services

If you are not able to provide us with a print ready artwork, we do have a vectorizing/recreating service available. Most logos or images can be recreated for $70. Artwork design service discounts may apply.  Please contact a sales representative today for more details.

This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.

Do waterproof vinyl stickers have a glossy or matte finish?

Water resistant stickers are available in either a glossy or matte finish. Matte laminate diffuses light and reduces the shine of the ink making text easier to read from all angles since it doesn’t glare. Whereas, gloss laminate adds a shine to your stickers that reflects light creating a more vibrant color than the matte finish.

Are your waterproof stickers laminated?

Yes, all of our water-resistant stickers come laminated. You can choose from our standard lamination, which is a liquid lamination or our premium lamination, which is a film lamination.

How do I design my custom waterproof stickers on your website?

To make your own water-resistant sticker, start by deciding what your message is. Then, pick a size that will fit your lettering. Next, add any clipart or graphics using our online design tool, located in step 3 of your ordering process. If you need assistance, contact our customer service team.

Do you have stock images I can use for my waterproof custom stickers?

No, we do not have any stock images or numbers for printing. All of our water-resistant stickers are custom, meaning you can design them yourself, or connect with our graphic designers for assistance.

What are the best surfaces to place waterproof stickers on?

Water-resistant stickers work best on smooth, solid surfaces. Some of these places include glass, metal and plastic. Examples include; car doors, windows , laptops or lockers. Check out our blog, “How to Install a Sticker” for more information.

What surfaces or material do waterproof stickers not stick to?

Water-resistant stickers do not stick well to dirty or textured surfaces. For the highest quality application, you will want to make sure the surface is clean, dry, and smooth. If you have dirt, dust or texture under your sticker, it will not stick well and will peel off of the surface you placed it on. Reason being, the adhesive material isn’t attaching to the surface as needed when there is dirt, dust, or texture on the surface you are applying it to. Check out our blog, “How to Install a Sticker” for more information.

Does heating a waterproof sticker make it stick better?

The adhesive on a sticker works better in warmer temperatures. The ideal temperature for applying a sticker is room temperature (60 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit). It is more important to make sure it isn’t cold when applying a sticker. Just like how we don’t like to move in the cold, the glue film on the sticker will harden in the cold making it less sticky during your application. Check out our blog for more details!

What’s your most affordable sticker?

It depends on your specific project and needs. Our price set is based on 5 options our customers can pick from: Cut type, material type, size, quantity, and production time. For help, contact our customer service team.

What sizes do your waterproof stickers come in?
