Die cut vs kiss cut stickers — Is there a difference?

When it comes to stickers, they are made similarly, but they're not all exactly the same. Kiss cut stickers are made with a finely tuned printer. It is pressure sensitive and cuts the sticker only and not the paper. So you’re left with paper backing around it. On the other hand, die cut stickers are cut to shape — sticker and paper! So you’re left with a sticker that has the exact same shape on the paper backing as well. Check out this article called “Kiss Cut vs Die Cut stickers — What’s the difference” if you want to learn even more!

Why custom stickers?

Because they “stick” in the minds of your customers and potential customers. Custom stickers will make your business stand out above a plain sticker. It doesn’t matter is you get a die-cut sticker or a kiss-cut sticker. Either will do the trick.   Die-cut stickers are great if you want to sell or hand out single stickers with your logo or message. They’re so fun and are in any shape you like.

    • I like that you said that stickers can stick to the mind of customers and attract them for good business. My wife told me that she wanted to do a car wash to collect money for breast cancer. I'm going to let her know about creating custom stickers for cars after a good clean.

        • Thanks for explaining that die-cut stickers are cut to shape with both the sticker and the paper because that makes it a lot easier to tell the difference. I love stickers and I've been thinking of turning my art into some. Now that I know more about the types of stickers, I can be more informed when I choose what to do.
