Die Cut? Kiss Cut? What does it mean?

We’ve had some customers express confusion about the meaning of “Die Cut” and “Kiss Cut” so we hope to clarify this with the explanation below.

DIE CUT: What does die cut mean? This term simply means custom-shaped stickers. Our die cutters cut through both the sticker material and the backing material to give your custom die cut stickers a shape that is as unique as the artwork on it!

KISS CUT: What does kiss cut mean? Custom kiss cut stickers include light cuts within the border of your stickers. When stickers are created with kiss cuts, it means they can easily peel out of the backing material and the backing material remains intact. Multiple kiss cuts on one sticker are usually called a “sticker sheet”.

We offer kiss cut sticker sheets with any number of individual kiss cuts on them. Simply choose a sticker sheet size and shape, then choose the number of kiss cuts or “stickers per sheet” you’d like on it.

Regardless of what kind of custom stickers you order, our die cutting machines will produce a clean and accurate cut line, even with delicate designs. StandOut Stickers specializes in high quality sticker cutting on stickers of all shapes and sizes.

When setting up your custom sticker sheet artwork, we recommend keeping 1/8 of an inch or more between your cuts and the outer edge of your sticker sheet. This spacing ensures a higher quality quality result that is easier to peel .

Comparing Kiss Cut to Die Cut Stickers

Kiss Cuts are cuts that go only through the vinyl. Making it possible to have multiple cuts on one sticker which appear to be die cut when they are applied to something.

Die Cuts are cuts that go through both the vinyl and sticker backing paper. These are a great way to help your brand StandOut.

In the photo below you’ll notice that the left image is a kiss cut sticker which still has the rectangle backing behind it. However, once the sticker is removed from the backing it appears as if it were die cut. The image on the right shows a die cut that is around the image so there isn’t excess material.

Kiss Cut Stickers VS. Die Cut Stickers

The question we’ve been getting a lot lately is “What is the difference between die cut and kiss cut stickers?”

The answer is quite simple. As you can view below, the photo compares a Kiss Cut Sticker to a Die Cut Sticker.

StandOut Stickers

Kiss Cut Stickers – As you can see on the left in the photo above – a kiss cut sticker is very similar to a die cut sticker. However, the main difference is the sticker backing isn’t cut to the shape of the sticker.

Die Cut Stickers – A Die Cut Sticker is a sticker that is cut to the shape of the sticker. (view the photo example to the right).

I hope this helps.
