Sticker Materials

When choosing a sticker material, there are two basic categories to choose from. The first is Paper-based materials, such as White Gloss Paper, White Matte Finish Paper, Colored Papers, Fluorescent Papers (also referred to as Neon and Day-Glo colored papers), which are available in Pink, Red, Orange, Chartreuse and Green shades. Metallic Foils (Silver and Gold) also fall into this category, as most foil sticker materials are made by laminating a thin layer of foil to a paper base stock. These are available in both a Shiny (Bright Finish) and a Dull (Matte Finish). The other basic category is made up of "Film" stocks, sometime referred to as Synthetic or Man-made materials. These include Clear Film, White Film and Metallic Film, and these are made from various film types, such as Mylar (Mylar is the brand name for Dupont's Polyester), Polystyrene and BOPP Films (Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene). Other materials in this category are Vinyl and Tyvek. Some materials available:

Sticker Inks

Most of the stickers we produce, are printed with a process called Flexographic Printing, so our inks give you a very professional, high quality result. In most cases, these inks will outperform digitally printed stickers. These inks give you a very solid, bright finish that is both eye catching and durable. These inks are dried onto the sticker material with high volume, heated air dryers, so that they form a strong bond to the surface of the sticker material, making them smudge-proof and scuff resistant.
