Kiss cut stickers
Kiss cut stickers meaning
When deciding which custom stickers to use to promote your business, it is important to consider how you would like the stickers to be cut. With kiss cut sticker printing, the whole backing sheet will be printed and the cut will be around the edge of your design but it will not cut through the backing sheet. This is a popular choice because it can make it easier to peel off the stickers, which is particularly helpful if you have large quantities to apply.
Add your logo or graphics to our kiss cut stickers and promote your brand in your own unique way. They can be added to product packaging or used to decorate spaces such as shops or stands at events and trade fairs. With Pixartprinting, you can also choose the shape and dimensions of your stickers and add special finishes and lamination for an ultra-professional and enduring look.
What is the difference between kiss cut and die cut stickers?
As mentioned above, with kiss cut stickers your sticker will be printed across the whole sheet, with a cut in the shape that you have selected, but the backing sheet will not be cut and will remain in place after the sticker has been removed. With Die cut stickers, on the other hand, both the sticker and the backing sheet are cut to your desired shape. So, which should you choose? Kiss cut stickers are said to be easier to peel off but both will look the same when applied so it depends on your preference.
Kiss cut stickers – Advantages and uses
We have already covered the fact that the backing on kiss cut stickers makes them easier to peel off, but what other advantages are there? The backing also helps to protect the stickers until they are removed, making them an ideal option for handing out at trade fairs or events. However, they can be used in all sorts of situations: you can enhance your product packaging with them, use them to advertise promotions in your shop, café or restaurant, decorate your spaces, draw attention to specific products or embellish your stand at exhibitions. The opportunities are endless!
