Non-weatherproof paper stickers are printed in your choice of 1, 2 or 3 Pantone spot colors (PMS colors) in a variety of standard shapes and sizes including squares, rectangles, circles and ovals. Your stickers are supplied on rolls or can be single cut!
Gloss VS. Litho?
We offer 2 stocks for this sticker printing option; white gloss or white litho which is uncoated and has a matte appearance. If you plan to write on your stickers, be sure to choose the litho, uncoated stock.
All standard square and rectangle flexo stickers are pre-cut with a slightly rounded corner. If your design requires "square-cut" corners, please ask us for custom quote and we will get you pricing asap!
Due to the press and ink set up, the minimum quantity we print is 500 units.
Paper stickers are an affordable option to get your logo and message in front of your customers easily. Whether you apply them to your retail products, envelopes, hang tags or shopping bags, these paper stickers are a very cost effective sticker option.
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.
