Glossy Stickers | Custom Glossy Stickers
Glossy stickers are stickers that have a shiny, glossy finish on them. Our custom gloss laminate is what gives our stickers the glossy sheen. Glossy stickers can be used for various purposes, including labeling, decoration, and promotional materials. They are often used because of their durable, waterproof nature, as well as their attractive appearance.
The gloss finish adds shine, reflects light, and brightens your stickers. Glossy stickers are ideal for bumper stickers, car stickers, or stickers that will see any outdoor use. They are water-resistant and waterproof, protecting them from wear and tear.
Our glossy vinyl stickers are a cost-effective, fast and easy way to promote your business, brand, or event. Printed on generously thick, durable vinyl with a weatherproof and UV-resistant laminate coating - your stickers are protected from scratches, water & sunlight. In addition, these have a practical outdoor life of 5 years.

Glossy Stickers FAQ
Q: Should I make glossy or matte stickers?
A: It depends on your use and preferences. If you have fine text, a matte finish may work better. Matte stickers are easier to read in all lighting conditions because they limit glare and light reflections. That said, they also subdue the color a bit.
If you are looking for a more high energy sticker, a glossy finish may be better. It makes the color pop, enhancing the color contrast.
Q: Why are glossy vinyl stickers better than other types of stickers?
A: Simply put, vinyl is the most premium and highest quality material that can be used for stickers. Vinyl is waterproof and lasts for years outdoors. Many sticker companies use BOPP (Polypropelene), a much lower quality material typically only suited for indoor use. It will generally degrade after a couple of months. Some companies even use paper for their stickers which typically last days.
Q: What are die-cut stickers?
A: Die-cut stickers are cut to the exact shape of your design. This makes your design pop. They have a great appearance even before you've stuck them somewhere. These vinyl stickers are perfect for handing out at events, promoting your brand or business, or sharing your designs. We can cut all types of custom shapes.
Q: What are kiss-cut stickers?
A: Kiss-cut stickers are not cut through the backing paper. They are typically printed onto sticker sheets so you can have multiple designs on one page. We offer Sticker Sheets, in addition to die-cut stickers. Our sticker sheets also use premium white vinyl. You can put multiple custom shapes onto a sheet.
Q: What is so great about your custom glossy stickers?
A: We use state-of-the-art technology to make our stickers. We have the widest color gamut and most accurate printing in the industry. We also have technology that allows us to cut detailed designs with extreme accuracy. All of our personalized stickers are laminated and durable for five+ years outdoors. We stand behind the quality of all of our products. Check out a blog post we wrote about the quality of our stickers here.
Q: Should I order glossy stickers or labels?
A: In addition to stickers we offer glossy labels and matte labels. Labels are temporary in nature, and typically come on a label roll or sheet. They are designed to be easier to apply to product packaging. However, custom labels won't have nearly the same durability and lifespan that our stickers offer.
Q: What type of file do I need to submit for my sticker design?
A: Our design team can work with virtually any file type. For best results, we recommend a high-resolution image such as a PNG or JPG or a Vector file such as an SVG, AI, and EPS. If you need help enhancing the resolution of your file, our team can help.
Q: Can I order just one custom glossy sticker?
A: Yes, we have no minimum quantities! We can help whether you need a single glossy sticker or thousands.
Q: I need a specific sticker size that isn't listed. Is this possible?
A: Yes, of course! You can purchase the closest size and leave a note at checkout, or contact us, and we can give you a quote.
Q: Are your glossy stickers removable or permanent?
A: Our stickers have a permanent adhesive. They will stay strong for years on most surfaces without issue. However, they can be removed without leaving a sticky residue.
Q: Can I use a photo as my artwork for my customizable stickers?
A: Yes! Many customers make awesome stickers of their family, friends, pets, and more. If you need your image cropped, please leave a note at checkout so our design team understands what you want to be done.
Q: Can you turn my logo into a gloss sticker?
A: Yes! Logo stickers and business stickers are some of our most printed stickers. If you need assistance setting up your logo to print, don't hesitate to reach out. Gloss stickers work well for product packaging, or for free order throw-ins.
By default, we add a small border around your art. However, leave a note at checkout if you want full-bleed. Also, note that the size selection references the longest side of the sticker.
Our team will do all the work to set up your file. However, suppose you are an advanced user and already have Adobe Illustrator. In that case, you are welcome to create the cutlines that we will use.
To do this:
- Create a layer with your design called "Artwork."
- Create a second layer and call it "Cut Line."You can then use paths to create the cutline exactly how you would like it. If you want it to follow your design, you can vectorize and then offset the design and convert that path to a stroke.
For designs with a border, you should maintain a margin of at least 0.05" between the cutline and the design.
We can also print and cut your stickers with a full bleed. This means the design will go to the edge of the stickers. To accomplish this, we bring the cut line inside your art by approximately 0.03."
If setting up your design with full bleed, please bring the cut line in by at least 0.03".
Minimum Cut Size
For die-cut stickers, we can go as small as 0.75x0.75". If you need something smaller, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. For kiss-cut stickers, we can do 0.5x0.5".
The finest detail we recommend is 0.5pt line-weight.
Artwork can be supplied in CMYK or RGB. We typically recommend RGB. It has a broader color gamut. Our printers use ten ink colors so that we can hit over 98% of Pantone colors. RGB gives a more accurate print for our setup.
We print stickers in high resolution. We recommend that you submit your images in 300ppi at full size. If your image is low resolution, our team will automatically enhance it. However, very low-resolution images may still come out grainy even after improving. We will contact you if we think there could be an issue.
You can submit any file format you like. If you set the file up yourself, you can save it and upload it as a PDF.
By default, we leave white areas of your design transparent. In other words, we do not lay down ink in those areas. Instead, the vinyl material of your choice will show through there.
Our printers are capable of printing white ink. If you need white ink printed on your stickers, please reach out for a custom quote.
