Quick Guide to Common Sticker Printing Techniques Used By Professionals

Nov 17th 2014 at 12:10 AM

Stickers are being used for labeling products and other items since a long time, which is why there are so many professional sticker printing services. At such places, various types of stickers are printed using a number of different equipment and processes to get high quality stickers. With time, new technology has found its place in the sticker printing industry which is why there are more options now. You can get stickers in hundreds or maybe thousands of different color combinations, designs, shapes, size and thickness.

There are many forms of sticker printing methods being used these days. Here are some commonly used ones that you will see at a professional printing service:

Screen Printing

Using synthetic screens, images are transferred on to the sticker paper. This is one of the oldest methods of printing stickers and the process is also relatively simple. There is a stencil that is placed on the paper and ink of the desired color is pushed through the screen. Every color has its own stencil and the process is repeated for each color that is to be used.

Flexography

Using this method, a large number of stickers can be printed in a short time using a master print which is attached to the plate. This plate is then rolled over the sticker paper thus creating impressions on the paper. This process is quick and therefore flexography is a popular method for professional printing services.

Offset Printing

A rubber cylinder or plate is used to transfer the image to the sticker paper. Offset printing helps introduce a lot of color options to the sticker in very good quality.

Digital Printing

Using modern day digital printers, detailed stickers can be made quickly. One benefit that digital sticker printing offers is that changes can be made to the design any time without too much problems. Small businesses or people printing at home on their own rely on digital printing for their stickers.

Using Professional Sticker Printing Services

When there are a lot of stickers required, the best option is to go to a professional printing service and get the job done. The costs are not that high, in fact, very affordable, depending on how many stickers are needed and on their type, plus, it usually gets done very soon. The quality of professionally made stickers beats the quality that you get at home since print services use advanced machinery and techniques for their work.
