Give Your Products a Cutting Edge Look With Kiss-Cut Labels

Stand out from the competition with the use of kiss-cut labels. These custom labels are produced with a special blade that creates a die-cut shape without cutting through the paper backing. Our kiss-cut labels are individually cut, which makes the label fuss-free to use and easy to peel even with intricate designs. Kiss-cut labels are perfect for bottles, jars, and clear containers to show off your branding as well as the product inside.

How to Choose the Best Size For Your Kiss Cut Labels

Here’s how to decide on the right dimensions for your kiss cut labels.

Choose from four (4) standard sizes (width x height) – 2" x 2”, 3” x 3”, 4” x 4”, and 5” x 5”. Choose one that fits your needs best. For custom sizes, we can print up to a maximum of 8.5” x 11”.

We recommend two (2) easy ways to measure your label size is by using a measuring tape or a sheet of paper and a ruler.

Option 1: Take your measuring tape and wrap it around your packaging or product to determine the size you need. This is the best method for curved surfaces like bottles and jars.

Option 2: Use a sheet of paper, cut in the shape that you want, and lay it over the area you want to label. If you are satisfied with the way it looks on your product, take the ruler to measure the paper’s dimensions. This method works best for custom shapes as well.

For accuracy, we still recommend measuring the container or product to ensure the right label size and shape before placing an order.

Design Tips for Kiss Cut Labels

Select the right shape for your design. Some shapes work better for logos, such as circles and ovals. If you need more space for text, then squares and rectangles are more suitable. The type of container or packaging also plays an important role. Tapered bottles may require custom-shaped labels like arch and hexagon to avoid creases and air bubbles during application.

Choose the material that suits your product packaging’s storage requirements. Where will your kiss cut labels be displayed? White paper sticker is strictly for indoor use. For outdoor applications wherein the label will be exposed to moisture or the elements, choose our durable and weatherproof white vinyl.

Finish with the right coating. If you opted for white paper sticker material for your labels, you have to pick between matte, gloss, and high-gloss coating. A matte finish gives your labels a subdued, premium look and is perfect if you want a writable surface using a ballpoint pen. A gloss coat gives labels a glass-like shine that complements bold colors. It also makes the label writable with the use of a permanent ink marker. The high-gloss laminate adds an extra layer of protection from UV rays and scratches. It makes your label extra shiny, but not writable.

Question & Answer

What is the difference between kiss-cut labels and cut-to-size labels?
Cut-to-size labels, also known as die-cut labels or singles, do not have an extra border around the design. Die-cut labels are printed and trimmed while cutting through the paper backing, unlike kiss-cut labels which still have the border and backing intact.
