1. How to prepare artwork for stickers?

  1. Safe Zone: all elements of your artwork must be within the Safety Margin of 3mm from all sides of the die-line.

  2. Full Bleed: Expand your background design by 3mm from all sides of the artwork height and width dimensions to ensure sufficient bleed

  1. Please note that custom size formats need to be at least 3 x 3 cm for rectangular shapes or need to have a minimum diameter of 3 cm for round shapes.
  2. Texts should be at least 2 mm in height, to ensure that they will appear sharp on the printed sticker.
  3. Please consider using 100% of single color, C, M, Y, or K, for small texts for sharper printing results.
  4. Please upload three files:

    1. File containing both artwork and die-cut in vector format
    2. Artwork file
    3. Die-cut line file in vector format



2. How to calculate the sticker format for die-cut or rounded stickers?

  1. In a first step, you need to select the Sticker Shape option for Die-cut Stickers.

  1. In the graphic below a custom format die-cut sticker is depicted. It is very important  here again to respect the safety margin and bleed of 3mm as depicted in the graphic. In order to calculate the surface of custom format stickers you have to draw the smallest rectangle possible around your custom design which still includes your whole artwork with bleed. The surface of this respective rectangle represents then the surface of your custom format sticker. In the Example 2 this is a rectangular of width 5 cm and height of 3 cm.

  1. By now, you know the custom format of your sticker design. Please click on Need a custom format now and enter your dimensions in terms of width and height in cm as depicted in the third graphic.

  1. The procedure for rounded stickers is somehow simpler. First, calculate the diameter (double the radius) of your rounded sticker design. Gogoprint is able to print rounded stickers with a diameter of 3 cm up to 10 cm. Please click on Format and select the dimension which is equal to your diameter value as described in the little information text below every option.

  2. Before uploading your artwork, please make sure that it is saved as pdf and has your desired format. This will secure your products have the quality you wish and be shipped in time.

3. Are the stickers weatherproof?

Gogoprint currently offers three material types for stickers:

Below is an overview of the different materials:


Sticker Type

Description

Example

PVC Sticker Indoor

  • Material ensures long lasting sticking strength on any surface as long as it is not outside. These stickers guarantee great visibility and are more eye-catching than Clear Stickers. By default, Indoor Stickers come with either Glossy or Matte Lamination to ensure great visibility.

PVC Sticker Clear Indoor

  • Material ensures long lasting sticking strength on any surface as long as it is not outside. Clear stickers are printed onto transparent PVC plastic and, therefore, blend with any background they are applied on. By default, Indoor Clear Stickers come with either Glossy or Matte Lamination to ensure great visibility.

PVC Sticker Outdoor

  • Stickers are optimized to withstand the elements and remain in place as long as you need them to. It is not possible to refine this material because that would reduce the resistance against sunshine/rain.
