Metallic paper stickers are printed on shiny or dull Gold or Silver foil stock in 1 to 3 Pantone colors (aka spot colors). This is an affordable and fast way to print squares, rectangles, circles and oval stickers on elegant metallic stocks.
Shiny gold and silver metallic stickers resemble a mirror before a shower and dull silver or gold would be more like a steamy mirror after your shower.
Metallic stickers provide an affordable solution for serious branding. Get your logo or message in front of your customers with some flash to your stickers by printing on gold or silver metallic non-weatherproof sticker stock.
Your stickers are supplied on rolls or as single cut stickers to make it easy to apply top your products or hand out.
Square and Rectangle Stickers Have Rounded Corners
Due to the method of cutting, all square and rectangle stickers have rounded corners with a radius of 1/8" (0.125"). Square cut corners are available as a custom quote, however cost is higher due to additional steps in the cutting process.
