Our Sticker Printing Methods

We make stickers and labels using a variety of different printing techniques. Small runs, from a single sticker up to thousands of spot or full colour stickers are printed digitally. Medium runs of spot colour single- or double- sided stickers are screen printed. We can also supply double sided window stickers in full colour. Long runs of full colour or spot colour stickers and labels are produced on high speed UV letter presses.

We specialise in high quality industrial grade sticker and label printing on vinyl and paper, at prices affordable even for small and new businesses. We’ve even printed mountain bike decals to customise someone’s bike. Opaque or transparent, permanent adhesive or peelable or self-cling vinyl, with or without sequential numbering and in sizes from a few millimeters diameter to nearly 10 metres long x 1.6 metres wide. Call us to discuss your needs for any self adhesive printed labels and stickers, and to ask what we’d advise for what you’re trying to achieve.

Print Samples

Our vinyl stickers are printed on high quality, exterior sign grade, gloss or matt white and gloss transparent vinyl.

The manufacturers of both the vinyl and the ink, suggest a minimum life expectancy outdoors of 3 to 5 years.

Colours

Stickers made using various sticker printing methods, using different inks, printing onto different media will produce differing colour results.

The colours that you see on your desk top printer may differ from those that are produced by our label and sticker printing methods.

If you require an exact colour match, please send a vector file and a visual reference. We will match the colour by eye as close as we can from the Pantone charts below, and insert it into your artwork.

Sticker makers are not usually able to change colours in bitmaps such as .jpeg’s however, we have our own in house Adobe Photoshop expert who can make these changes! Please call if you are having problems with your artwork.
