Easy-to-Personalize Stickers - Custom Sticker Printing


Before online printers became popular, printing your own stickers at home had been a time-consuming project. After making a great sticker design, you'd have to lay it out on a page, select the proper print settings, and load your printer with the only type of standard sticker paper it's compatible with.

Even when you successfully print homemade stickers, the results are often not up to par with your design ideas. Trimming each sticker takes time, and the ink gets smudged when exposed to moisture.

DIY sticker printing is just not worth the time and effort.

Online printing companies today offer easy-to-personalize stickers for an affordable price. Aside from ordering custom stickers in the exact specifications you want, printing experts also offer free shipping, design proofs, and fast turnarounds. This means you can print stickers today and have them delivered straight to your door the next day.

How to Customize Your Stickers


Printing stickers online means you're not limited to one sticker format.

At PrintRunner, we offer four (4) ways to print custom stickers: cut-to-size, roll, sheet, and kiss-cut. What's the difference?

Cut-to-size stickers mean that each piece is individually cut, separated, and trimmed according to its size and shape. Cut-to-size stickers are suitable when:

  • You only need to print a small quantity
  • You need to apply stickers by hand

Roll stickers are printed on adhesive paper using a dedicated printer that wraps it around a cardboard spool that fits most label dispensers. Roll stickers are best for when:
  • You need to apply stickers quickly, or you have a label dispenser
  • You want to print stickers in bulk

Sheet stickers are printed on a single piece of white sticker paper. The sheets come in various sizes. Choose sheet stickers if:
  • You need to print multiple designs on a single sheet
  • You need something easy to stack and store

Kiss-cut stickers are printed individually like cut-to-size stickers, except they come with a border and backing sheet surrounding your design. Choose kiss-cut stickers if:
  • You need extra protection for intricate designs
  • You want to print added branding on the border

Easy-to-Personalize Stickers FAQs


Can I print stickers in any shape?
Yes. We can trim your stickers and labels to your design's exact size and shape. This process is called die-cutting, and we can do this for cut-to-size, kiss-cut, roll, and sheet formats. Let us know you want custom die-cut shapes by selecting Custom in the order calculator.

How does free design proofing work?
You can upload your design on the website and select the PDF proof option before checkout to request a free proof. After confirming your order, our prepress team will email you a PDF document for your review. You can check for any design errors and make necessary changes before it goes to print. This process is free of charge and will be ready within 6 hours after you place your order.

What is the minimum quantity to order stickers?
It depends on the sticker format you would like to order. The lowest order quantity is 25 pieces for cut-to-size sticker printing. You can check the available options in the order calculator.

How soon can I receive my order?
You can select your preferred printing turnaround time plus shipping transit time on the order calculator. Then, input your ZIP code to get the rates and the estimated shipping arrival dates.

Do I get a lower price if I order in bulk?
