One of the most important factors to making your Die Cut Stickers StandOut is the shape. Many shapes have an instant association with a certain category of products. For example, a snowboard will be associated with snow, the mountains, and winter. This can allow you to convey a message before the reader even reads the slogan or other information that the sticker illustrates. This association can be very important, since most people will only glance at a sticker and not take time to analyze it.
Beyond the shape of your Die Cut Sticker, another thing to consider is the colors that you would like to use. Colors can help a sticker StandOut and can also help illustrate a certain feeling or emotion to the customer. Green often implies environmentally friendly, blue is calm and laid back, and reds are passionate. If you use your logo, then you will want to incorporate those colors into the sticker as well to help prompt brand recognition.
Sticker Printing Tips
Making your Die Cut Sticker StandOut is a combination of many factors, and here are some tips to get you started:
• Use the shape of your logo. Since the shape of your Die Cut Sticker should always relate to your business, if you don’t have an obvious shape that fits your company, use the shape of your logo. This helps to reinforce brand recognition.
• Stick with the basics. Die cuts come in three basic types – geometric, natural, and abstract. Geometric are the well known shapes like circles and triangles. Natural shapes can be a leaf or a flower. Abstract shapes are easily recognized for what they symbolize, such as the wheelchair symbol that designates handicapped spaces. Talk to us (StandOut Stickers) if you are running short on ideas. Our experienced staff can help assist you.
• Colors should emphasize, not distract. The four-color printing process can lead to amazing stickers, but you don’t want to add so much color to your sticker that it detracts from the original message. In some cases, using only one or two colors will be just as effective for getting across your message.
Remember, a sticker is likely to get a glance and not much more from the viewer. You’ll need to find a design that can be recognized and understood just as quickly.
This applies to Custom Contour Cut or Custom Die Cut Stickers only. If you our interested in ordering our standard shapes please use our sticker templates.
If you are unsure of how to set up a die line on your custom sticker leave it to our art team. They’ll make sure it’s perfect. (photo below) A customer wanted a contour cut around their sticker and needed our assistance. We sent over two digital mock ups so they could choose which looked best. The pink line around the sticker represents the “contour cut” and the black line represents the actual sticker die cut.
In this case the customer chose our Custom Contour Cut Stickers and kept a traditional die cut (4″ x 2″ Rectangle Sticker) to help keep the cost down. By going this route they were able to save a die fee.
