Do You Need Singles or Roll Custom Stickers?
Sticker singles come in individual pieces and are normally applied by hand. You can stack them neatly and bundle them in sets. After selecting your total quantity for your custom sticker printing order, go to “Advanced Options” and indicate the quantity you want in each set.
Roll stickers come in the same standard shapes as cut-to-size. If your preferred size is not available, you can select “Custom” as your shape. A variety of widths and heights are available for you to get the exact dimensions you need for your design. This format takes at least 2 business days to print.

Materials That Stick to Reinforce Your Design
All stickers are printed on durable weather-resistant, waterproof, or indoor-friendly materials. Discover the best option for your packaging or sticker from the following:
- Vinyl paper is weather and scratch-resistant and available for both formats.
- Roll stickers can be printed on oil and water-resistant materials such as white, metallic, and clear BOPP. White BOPP provides a solid white background. Metallic has the same effect as foil at a cheaper price. Clear offers a transparent look for bottles and jars.
- Highlight displayed store items with the indoor-friendly white sticker paper.
Bright and Luxurious Finishes to Elevate Your Design
All these come in matte, gloss, or high gloss UV coating if you need to print personalized stickers.
- The matte coating has a smooth, subdued finish, while gloss gives colors an extra pop. The former is recommended for an elegant design, while the latter works for fun color combinations.
- You can also print custom stickers on the water-resistant, extra shiny high-gloss UV coating. This creates an added sheen and gives bold hues a brighter finish.
Print in the Exact Size and Shape You Need
Singles come in the four (4) standard shapes: square, rectangle, circle, and oval. A variety of sizes are available for each shape. Among the rectangle or square options, 3” x 3” or 6” x 6” are popular for minimalist designs or visuals that focus on one element .
Roll stickers come in the standard shapes, plus custom size options if you require a specific look. Select "Custom” as your shape and you can combine a wider range of widths and heights.

If your design does not meet the printing requirements, our team will communicate the concern and discuss how we can remedy the file.

- The color tone is in CMYK
- Resolution is at least 300 dpi
- The printed design follows the bleed, trim, and caution lines
What format should I submit the file in?
We accept files in the following formats: PDF, EPS, PUB, PSD, JPG, JPEG, or TIF.
What is the smallest size available for custom stickers?
The smallest size depends on the format you select:
- Singles: 1.5” x 2.5”
- Roll: 0.5” x 1”
- Sheet: 4” x 6”
- Kiss-Cut: 2”x 2”
Which sticker material can I write on?
Uncoated white paper stickers have a writable surface. This material is popular for stickers used on delivered packages or envelopes.
Is there a minimum quantity for ordering stickers?
Yes, you must order at least 25 singles, kiss cut stickers, and 250 rolls and sheets.
If I need a large order, should I order roll or cut-to-size stickers?
We recommend the roll stickers for large quantity orders. Roll stickers are easier to apply quickly whether done manually or using a label dispenser. Cut-to-size stickers are more suitable for small orders starting at 25 pieces, letting you hand them out easily or insert them in your packages.
How much does a custom sticker cost?
The cost will depend on the quantity, size, shape, material, and finish of your sticker. After inputting your specs, the online calculator will load the total price and unit cost for each piece. Note that the price increases with a faster production time and other advanced options such as rounded corners or a custom trim.
My sticker design has a centered image. Would that look better on a roll or cut-to-size sticker?
Since roll stickers are printed one at a time, it is easier to position a centered image more precisely on the background. We recommend opting for a roll sticker over cut-to-size for designs with a central image. Roll stickers are also much easier to peel.
What does the turnaround time indicate?
Turnaround represents the number of days required to print your job. It does not include shipping time or direct mail processing time. All turnaround times are based on business days and exclude national holidays. Read our detailed explanation of our turnaround options.
What is the difference between matte, gloss, and high gloss?
The matte coating has a smooth surface and provides a sophisticated but subdued tone to your colors.?
Gloss adds vibrancy to every color and makes images pop in a design.?
High-gloss UV provides the ultimate glossiness and reflectivity. Out of all the coatings, this can withstand frequent handling.
What is the difference between the BOPP materials and white sticker paper?
BOPP materials (clear, white, and metallic plastics) are used on items such as beer, water, and wine bottles. These work best for indoor use on items that require refrigeration, making them water- and oil-resistant. None of them can be written on with a standard marker or pen.
White sticker paper is used for indoor products that won’t be exposed to water or other outdoor elements. This material is also not writable.
Both paper and BOPP materials come with either gloss or matte laminate.
How much does it cost to print custom stickers?
The cost of your custom stickers depends on the size, shape, material, and quantity. The larger your order quantity, the less you spend per piece. This applies to both formats. For example, 50 square white paper sticker cut-to-size costs 50¢ each. On the other hand, 1,000 of the same type only costs 5¢ per sticker.
How many stickers are printed in one roll?
The number of stickers per roll depends on your chosen size and shape. The average measurement per roll is at 3” in diameter. You may contact our printing experts if you need a specific number of stickers per roll.
What does the unwind direction for a custom roll sticker indicate?
The unwind direction determines where your artwork will be printed on each roll sticker. It also shows the direction from which the stickers will unwind from the core. The direction is indicated according to the copy on your custom sticker printing design:
- Top of copy
- Bottom of copy
- Right of copy
- Left of copy
