We try our best to meet the stated time but unfortunately due to custom manufacturing each product we can hit problems with artwork, machines and staff so 98% of orders go out on time but 2% of orders can go over by 1-2 working days. Please bear this in mind for time critical jobs.

We try our best to deliver before bank holidays but there could be a slight delay.

These use a transparent sticker vinyl material, meaning that your artwork can be printed without any unsightly white backgrounds. Only the coloured areas of your artwork are printed, any white areas are simply left unprinted so they remain transparent. However, this does mean that white areas are not printed, gradients cant be used and any printed areas may be slightly translucent due to the properties of clear material.

These use state-of-the-art white ink printing technology. The same transparent sticker vinyl material is used to provide transparent areas, but if you have any white parts of your artwork you want to keep, then they can be printed as well. Alongside this, gradients can also be printed and any coloured areas are fully opaque, making them more suitable to be placed on dark surfaces. However there is a slight increase in cost for this option due to the additional print time and specialist white ink used.

If you want to put your sticker on a window, you can also select the reverse printing option, so it can be stuck on a surface with the artwork visible from the other side.

What are clear labels and stickers and what can I use them for?

Normal stickers look great, especially if you have artwork which fills the entire shape (such as a square or circle). However, sometimes, you may be left with a white background which doesnt really serve much purpose.

This can be useful to act as a background and provide good contrast against the surface (for example, very dark artwork placed on a black surface may benefit from the white background).

However, in situations where this isnt an issue, clear stickers and labels can offer a fantastic alternative which gives you the professionalism of what looks like contour-cut artwork, but without the fuss.

Instead of the normal white satin vinyl we use, the vinyl is transparent and clear. Your artwork is then printed on to it using a special method which fills in coloured areas and makes them almost opaque (if slightly translucent). Youre then left with stickers where only your artwork is visible and the rest is transparent. No more white or coloured backgrounds if you dont need them!

This affect is often achieved by contour cutting. For example, if your artwork is made up of letters, then each letter is contour-cut out of the vinyl so it can be stuck down on its own. This then means that theres no actual background apart from the surface its being placed on. Whilst Discount Sticker Printing also offer this feature, clear stickers and labels mean that you can have a similar affect with all of your artwork on a single sheet of clear vinyl material.

White ink technology also gives you another advantage. In the past, printing has worked by simply omitting any white colours from the final print, so if you didnt want a background on your stickers, then you would just make the background white and it wouldnt be printed. This is fairly straightforward, but if you have white areas within your artwork, then you can be left with printed holes! White ink technology means that white ink can actually be printed where you have white visual elements in your artwork. This means that virtually everything you want to be printed can be, whilst everything you want left out (such as backgrounds) simply arent printed onto the transparent vinyl.
