Every savvy marketer knows the value of handing out stickers with their business logo on them. Stickers are cheap to produce, easy to hand out and often make for years of free advertising once they’ve been placed. Custom Clear Stickers have a wide variety of uses and are more visually appealing than regular stickers.
Clear Stickers are great because they can go just about anywhere, sometimes a white vinyl sticker just won’t do. Clear vinyl stickers have a high visual impact, especially on the glass. They look clean on bottles, making them perfect for labels. When you sticker a colourful or printed product (like a skate deck, for example), clear logo stickers allow your product to show through.
Clear vinyl stickers are great for promotions and handouts but clear labels are great for customizing your product. Whether you need clear label prototypes or a full order of 1000’s of clear labels, we’ve got you covered. We can die cut our clear labels to any shape and size. We can print transparent stickers on several different types of clear vinyl depending on your project needs.
Clear Sticker Ideas
Clear Stickers also make excellent gifts or commemorative items. If a team or club you belong to wins a big event, you can have championship stickers made up. For tournaments and charity events, pass out participant stickers.
Many people also have stickers printed to commemorate the life of a loved one who has passed away. Transparent stickers also make a much better addition to your skateboard or snowboard because they add a new symbol without completely covering the original pattern. Clear Stickers really turn heads and make for excellent promotional or commemorative items.
Clear Sticker Printing & Design Information
Let’s talk adhesive. Our vinyl stickers are waterproof and stay wherever you stick them. But because you can see through clear vinyl, you have a variety of ways that your message is visible. If you’re looking to place clear stickers onto or on the outside of something (like bottles and product containers), you’re going to want a back adhesive sticker. Like regular vinyl stickers, these are printed with your message facing up.
If you plan on applying clear stickers on the inside of a window (here’s looking at you, retail store owners), then you’re going to want a face-adhesive sticker. We print your image facing down. When you get your transparent sticker, it may look white; you’ll see the color once you peel off the backing. These also make great parking passes. For temporary and repositionable window displays, consider window clings which have absolutely no adhesive.
If you have text on your sticker design that you want to make visible on either side of a window, you can use a sandwich sticker. These are clear stickers with print in color with a white backing, then color again. The opaque white layer separates the color layers so that there is no visual interference.
Because you are printing on a transparent material, it’s pretty important that we know what part of your image you want to be transparent. For those in the know, clear stickers need to be set up as a vector with a transparent background. If that sounds Greek to you, give us a call and we’ll make sure that your clear sticker comes out exactly the way you want it to.
Our heavy-duty flatbed printers use long-lasting and environmentally friendly UV ink and can print at up to 1440 DPI. UV ink doesn’t fade when exposed to harsh lighting and dries immediately when printed, so no toxic fumes are emitted into the air. No image is too complex to print and we charge based on size, quantity and type of materials used, so there’s no need to print a simpler image to save money.
We use precision CNC routers to cut our stickers, so the shape you choose is really only limited by your imagination. If you’re having trouble deciding on a shape, our experienced design team will be happy to assist you. Custom Die Cut Clear Stickers are in a league of their own.
Use & Care
Our clear stickers are designed to adhere to any material, even ones that aren’t perfectly flat. They’re also completely waterproof, so there’s no worry of your sticker coming off in the car wash. Average household dish soaps mixed with water, window cleaners like Windex or just plain water can be used to remove dirt that builds up over the years. Clear stickers are meant to be used permanently and the UV ink will look just as stunning as the day you bought it for years to come.
