Got a great sticker design but not sure how to print it? Online printing offers plenty of benefits that do-it-yourself sticker printing can’t do.

Everyone assumes working with professional online printers is expensive, but this is hardly true. With today’s printing capabilities and how online printers process batch orders, online printing can be a much more affordable option than local brick-and-mortar printers.

With custom stickers, you bring your designs to life in a wide variety of shapes, materials, and professional finishes. Not to mention they come pre-cut and ready to apply, saving you the trouble of measuring and trimming them yourself. Most printers even work with you and offer free design proofs, so the products print according to your exact expectations. After printing, your stickers are packed, shipped, and safely delivered straight to your home.

Ultimately, you save more time and money by ordering custom stickers online.

Customize Stickers With These Design Tips


Stickers are a unique way to promote your brand and services. They’re not a hard sell compared to other print products such as flyers and brochures. Customers even regard them as gifts and freebies rather than promotions.

Stickers offer limited space, so it’s essential to create a sticker design that meets your goals without overcrowding what little space you have.

How to Design Sticker Sheets (With Expert Tips From a Designer)


Here are some content and design tips to keep in mind:

Focus on your goal or main message


Focus on your goal or main message.
Some make the mistake of adding too many elements that detract attention from the key message or design. Keep your sticker design simple, clear, and straight to the point for your promotion to get noticed.

Use standout shapes


Use standout shapes.
Customers are used to getting standard stickers in squares and circles. Why not try custom shapes? Online printers offer die-cut services that trim your stickers in the exact size and shape of your design. Unusual designs spark curiosity and prompt customers to take a closer look. If you use stickers as handouts during events, there’s a bigger chance that people will pocket them if they are in unique shapes.

Enhance your design with finishes


Enhance your design with finishes.
Your sticker coating can either emphasize or diminish your design. Be careful when you choose what sticker material and coating to print on. Generally, gloss coating is better suited to colorful and vibrant sticker designs because it boosts saturation and design details. However, its reflective shine does not work well on dark colors and small text copy because it makes it more difficult for people to read. Matte coating, which diffuses shine and has a more subdued effect, is better for dark hues, text-heavy content, and elegant designs.

Always prototype your stickers


Always prototype your stickers.
By printing a sticker sample in the exact shape and size you want, you can check errors, sizes, spacing, and the overall design. It also helps to show other people the sticker prototype to get their inputs.

Not sure where to begin? You can request a free sample kit that includes our popular print product samples, including custom stickers. This helps you compare our variety of paper stocks, coatings, and features. You can specify the type of product you want to see, and we will include it in your kit.
