At StandOut Stickers, we specialize in printing high quality full color stickers. Our durable vinyl stickers are printed on cutting edge technology with long lasting eco-solvent inks and durable laminate finishes to protect your printed stickers from the elements, scratches, and fading.
We are capable of printing full color stickers in any size and shape and wanted to show a couple colorful samples and talk about what makes these particular full color sticker samples so excellent.
First we start with a die cut full color sticker for clothing company Big Bud. The brightly colored logo and bold black outlines make this uniquely-shaped sticker pop! Even if you don’t know what this sticker is advertising, something about it makes you want one for yourself.
Next we have a logo sticker for ROAR Organic Electrolyte Infusion. This full color sticker design features an instagram-filter image of a palm tree and our satin matte finish for a high end look.
The colorful stickers below were part of a large sticker pack for a streaming platform called VRV. Featuring a wide variety of cartoon characters and caricatures of famous movie & TV icons. The bright colors make every one of these square sticker designs eye-catching and attractive!
The small die cut stickers below were printed for a food company called Blizz. Their brightly colored logo really jumps out at you when printed in full color with our glossy finish.
Red Rum International is an outdoor boating / sporting company and their full color logo is perfectly captured on this circle sticker with a glossy finish. The colors are fresh, vibrant, and on-brand!
This rainbow colored sticker for Buzzfeed is die cut in an eye-catching shape. Nothing says “full color stickers” quite like a literal rainbow sticker!
This black and gold die cut sticker for Gold Thumbz cannabis looks great in our glossy finish.
Finally, our glitter finish doesn’t change the color of your full color stickers, but it does make them react to light in a dazzling way! This sparkly sticker finish is a great way to set your full color stickers apart from the crowd! Similar to a glitter flake found in automotive paint, add some sparkle and shine to your next order of full color stickers from StandOut Stickers!

At StandOut Stickers our custom stickers can be printed in full color or black and white, it’s up to you! We wanted to take a moment to showcase some striking black and white stickers and talk about ways to make your next black and white sticker design Stand Out!
Pro Tip: Rich Black Values
When designing a black and white sticker, make sure your black values will produce a dark, solid black called “Rich Black” Learn more about Rich Black Values in CMYK and tips for designing for print with black in our FAQ.
The sticker shown above for Beer Code Co. features our satin matte finish and an iconic die-cut badge shape with smooth rounded edges. This striking black and white sticker design is sure to get noticed from a distance!
This sticker keeps the good vibes highly visible with a strong black and white design and a unique die cut shape.
The stickers above for BELL Bicycles “Squid Bikes” brand were printed as easy peel matte stickers. We took a moment to color them in with Sharpie markers for a fun experiment!
We offer three unique finishes on our custom stickers. Our glossy finish offers the highest contrast of the three. But a lot of customers who choose black and white designs have found that our satin matte sticker finish makes black and white stickers look fantastic, almost “luxurious” if we can be so bold.
Our newest sticker finish is glitter, which makes black and white sticker designs look completely unique. Take a look at the sample below to see how light dances off the glitter when applied to a black and white sticker design.
No matter what sticker finish you choose, you can rest assured that all of our stickers feature the same high quality printing, thick vinyl, and weather resistance!

Another local favorite, CLE Clothing Company prints their iconic guitar pick and crossbones logo in this hard-to-miss black and white color scheme that looks perfect as a die cut sticker.
This diamond-shaped sticker for Carolina Bauernhaus Artisinal Ales features a high-contrast black & white logo and an easy peel feature that makes applying this black and white sticker a breeze!
We love our coffeee, and this black & white sticker for Bindle Coffee is die cut in an eye-catching shape!
No matter what shape or size your custom stickers need to be, consider printing them in black and white for a classic look that will stand the test of time!

We were recently contacted by graphic designer Lisa Champ, aka Red Halftone for a video concept she had planned. She wanted to compare and contrast the top ranking sticker printers to let her viewers know how they stack up.
We immediately responded enthusiastically. We love an opportunity to Stand Out!
Her video entitled “The Best Place To Print Custom Die Cut Stickers” went live this week!
In the rundown she had kind things to say about our print quality and the precise cut lines on our custom die cut stickers. She also had some nice things to say about other custom sticker printers. She covered pricing, thickness, and print quality.
Lisa also produced a board with sticker samples for an outdoor exposure test. On the board she stuck all of her sticker samples received from various printers and she set the board outside to bake in the sun and rain for a few months. We’ll check back later to see how that is going.
We love being put to the test because we believe in our high quality stickers. We’re always looking for constructive comments for ways to improve.
Take a look at Lisa’s comprehensive video and be sure to subscribe to her channel for more content like this!

Ever wondered how we accomplish some of the finest sticker printing in the world? It’s a relatively simple process that takes several talented professionals and some very advanced sticker printing and die cutting technology. Continue reading to see how the stickers get made at StandOut Stickers.
When you order custom stickers from StandOut Stickers you must submit your sticker artwork before you complete your order. Your sticker artwork can be as simple as a photograph, a logo, or a more complex piece of art; perhaps a sticker sheet with several kiss cuts defined. We like to see artwork that is high resolution. Ideally sticker artwork is created at 300dpi in CMYK but we are ready to help if you do not understand these terms. Send us what you’ve got and we’ll help turn it into awesome stickers!
We offer professional sticker templates to set up a number of standard sized sticker shapes. We also accept orders of custom stickers in any dimension or shape and offer a general die cut or custom size template with a few helpful setup notes included in the document.
Regardless of the quality or state of your sticker artwork, we are ready to help you set up a successful sticker for printing. Simply place an order and include any notes or concerns you have about your art in the notes field during checkout.
Once we have your order and artwork, our team of in-house graphics professionals will review your art file and set it up as a free digital proof. A digital proof is a representation of the final printed sticker shape with final size and cut path denoted. Think of it as an extra quality assurance step where you get to check and approve that the sticker artwork is set up properly on our end.
If you have ordered a die cut sticker with a custom shape, we check that your unique cut line path is ready for printing and make necessary adjustments to ensure a clean finished product. If you need help creating a cut path, it’s no problem.
If there is an artwork problem or question, this is the step where we reach out before we begin proofing. All orders get a free digital proof that you must approve before we print your stickers. This helps ensure that your stickers come out looking perfect every time. Digital proofs are sent via email within 24 business hours of placing your order, but often much faster!
Sticker Set Up
When your digital proof is approved, our professional graphics department is ready to set up your sticker design for printing on our large format digital printers. We put your artwork into a layout file that repeats your design in efficiently spaced rows to maximize the sticker material that is used and reduce waste. We run some quality assurance checks and queue your job on one of our many large sticker printers.
Now your sticker artwork is being printed on our high quality vinyl material! We load our large industrial sticker printers with rolls of super durable and high quality 3mil thick vinyl sticker material. As the stickers are printed, the material passes through the printer and wraps onto a second roll. When a roll of material is completely printed, we remove the printed roll and set it aside for lamination.
Our large format digital printers use vivid full color eco-solvent inks to reproduce your artwork with ultra fine detail and impressive resolution. Our printers use several more colors than a standard CMYK printing process to ensure perfect gradient blends and color accuracy. We’ve even been awarded G7 Master Facility status for color reproduction!
Once your custom stickers have been printed they run through our laminator machine. Laminate is a durable, clear material with several protective and aesthetic benefits! When you order, we call this the sticker “finish”. We laminate your custom stickers with either gloss finish or a satin matte finish; your choice at no additional cost. This 3mil laminate material protects your printed stickers from harmful UV rays, weather, and scratches to ensure that our stickers are some of the most durable custom stickers you can buy! The laminate finish also gives the stickers a hefty thickness, quality you can feel! The total 6mil thickness of our stickers is vastly superior to competitor stickers.
Die Cut Stickers
Now that your stickers have been proofed, printed and laminated, they’re almost done! We finally load the roll of printed stickers onto our incredible flat bed digital cutting machines. These precision machines feature a computer-guided cutting blade. The machine is programmed with your unique die cut path and the roll of printed stickers is aligned and synced with the cutting machine to ensure precise cuts. As the robotic arm sweeps across your roll of printed stickers, it pushes the blade through the sticker material; all the way through the vinyl sticker material and the backing material for the outer cut line, and only partially through for kiss cuts. (Kiss cuts are lighter cuts that do not cut the backing material, so you can peel off a section of your printed sticker.)
Finally, the die cut stickers are collected into tidy stacks and shrink wrapped before heading to shipping!
Once your sticker order arrives at shipping, it is promptly packed in an appropriately sized box with your order slip and stickers, as well as recycled paper or other biodegradable packing materials to help reduce shifting in transit.
We use branded tape to seal every box unless otherwise requested. “Blind shipping” is one of the free additional services we happily provide for many vendors and resellers. We ship via UPS and USPS. Once the shipping carrier of your choice picks up your order, we wave goodbye as your lovingly crafted custom stickers make their way to your doorstep.
All in a day’s work at our humble sticker printing company: StandOut Stickers.
