Make Products Stand Out With Metallic Stickers

The right custom sticker should not only convey the right message, but they should also stand out from the competition. Metallic sticker printing takes your ordinary stickers and brings them to life with colors that pop.

In metallic sticker printing, a layer of silver ink is applied before your design is printed on top. This process gives your metal stickers a distinct shiny look your customers will not forget.

Metallic sticker printing can handle different colors. You’re not stuck with one single color as it can also handle color gradients. They’re the ultimate stickers, perfect for showing off your sticker designs.

How to Make Your Metallic Stickers Stick Out

Your metallic stickers can be used for advertising, labeling product packaging, and as customer freebies. If you want your stickers to stand out, here are some of the things that you need to consider.

The size of your metallic sticker should be determined by its purpose. If you are going to use it to label your product, make sure that you choose a size that is big enough to contain all the important elements of your design as well as the necessary information.

Whatever the purpose of your sticker is, using the right font is crucial. It must be attractive yet readable. Sacrificing readability for a fancy, overly complicated font will only contribute to your sticker’s failure in delivering your message to customers.

Use colors that work best with your branding. They should match or complement your other marketing materials to ensure branding consistency.

If you want stickers that look professional, be sure to use high-quality images in your sticker design. Otherwise, your stickers will appear inadequately produced, which can cause a negative effect to your brand.
