What is the difference between custom stickers and cut vinyl decals?

We produce both custom stickers and cut vinyl decals. So what's the difference?

Custom Stickers

Our custom stickers are made of thick vinyl material, digitally printed in full color with your custom artwork. They can be die cut to any size or shape. We can also add kiss cuts to your stickers, which are light cuts on the surface of the sticker that peel out, creating a sticker sheet. Read more about kiss cut stickers.

We print your full color custom stickers on the highest quality industrial printing technology, and die cut them with state-of-the-art digital cutting machines.

Our custom stickers come in glossy or matte finishes. Both finishes are laminated over your printed artwork to protect it from UV exposure and outdoor weather conditions.

Pricing on custom stickers starts at 25 pieces and we offer bulk discounts for larger quantities. Production time on custom stickers is up to 5 business days.

Die Cut Vinyl Stickers
Cut Vinyl Decals

You normally find cut vinyl decals on vehicle windows, business windows, applied to smooth walls as wall decals, and more.

Cut vinyl decals are made of a solid color vinyl that is sticky on one side, with a layer of masking tape on the front. This allows you to peel off the back, and position your decal on a window or smooth surface, apply pressure, then peel off the masking layer to reveal a completely free-floating design of any size or shape.

You choose a single color of vinyl material and we cut your vector design out of the vinyl. These cut vinyl decals are more expensive than custom stickers due to the manual labor required in production, but they have a great custom look of a printed design with no background.

We offer cut vinyl decals in glossy black or white as standard colors, but we have a catalog of 60 decal colors listed on our website that you can custom order for a small fee. If you have a unique color or finish request not listed, contact us to see what we can get for you.

Cut Vinyl Decals require simple, single color vector artwork (.ai, .eps, .pdf), or we may be able to simplify & vectorize your design / logo for a reasonable artwork fee.

Custom decals also take a bit longer to produce. You can expect up to 7 business days on most lower quantity orders of cut vinyl decals. Contact us for an estimate on orders over 1,000 cut vinyl decals.
