Metallic Sticker Printing
A Colorful Way to Brand Yourself
Metallic sticker printing brings you one step closer to creating a memorable brand for your business. Our metallic stickers will adhere to most surfaces, giving you many opportunities to promote your products and services.
Metallic ink works by applying a layer of silver ink below all the other colors. This process gives your stickers a metallic vibe that draws attention. Also, metallic sticker printing lets you use any color without compromising the quality – it even works on gradients.
Many Sizes – Big and Small
Your custom metallic ink stickers can be printed square or rectangle. Our most popular size is 2” x 2” but there are many size options, from 1.5” x 3.5” all the way to 6” x 9”.
Our 70 lb. sticker paper can solve your branding issues with its wide range of applications. They can be used to brand jars, cans, soap, and other types of containers. Your metallic stickers can also double as shipping and packaging stickers.
Bright Colors, Shiny Coating
High-gloss UV coating gives your stickers protection against moisture, dust, and fingerprints. Not only that, it helps boost colors so that the metallic ink becomes more prominent.
What does turnaround time mean?
Turnaround time refers to the number of business days it takes to print your metallic ink stickers. It does not include shipping time.
Are your metallic stickers waterproof?
No. They are not waterproof but the high-gloss UV coating offers some protection against moisture.
Are the stickers cut to size or are they on a roll?
Metallic ink stickers are cut to size.
Metallic Printing File Preparation Guidelines
What should I keep in mind while creating the metallic design?
Use these design guidelines to create an effective metallic design:
- Font size should be above 12 points.
- Use Sans Serif fonts for readability.
- The metallic shine is most evident in lighter colors. It will be less obvious in darker colors.
- The mask and CMYK design file should match one another. Make sure each layer’s respective elements align with the other version of the design.
How should I prepare my file for metallic printing?
You need to submit a file with two layers. For metallic printing orders: the standard CMYK layer and the silver foil mask layer.
The mask layer should show where the metallic printing will be applied. Mark the metallic area with 100% K or black and then render the non-metallic parts in white.
For example, the images below show that the logo in black will be metallic, while the white background is the non-metallic section.
