How Can I Make Die Cut Photo Stickers?

With custom die cut stickers, the sky is the limit. So why not get one for your friend's birthday, a hen do or a sticker of your pet?

All you have to do for that is select your favourite material and upload your photo of choice - we will take care of the rest.

If you want to learn more about how to prepare your photo and how you can use a photo die cut sticker, read on.

Prepare your image to create a great die cut sticker

The photo you upload forms the basis of your sticker. The better the quality, the better your sticker will look. However, the quality of your image can vary depending on its resolution.

But do not worry, there is a way you can ensure that your photo will print nicely.

Before you submit your artwork, check its DPI. DPI stands for dots per inch. When you zoom into an image, you can see that it is made out of dots, so-called pixels.

The more dots there are per inch, the better your image quality. You should aim for a minimum of 300 DPI or more.

You can then continue the ordering process as usual: choose your favourite material and shape and hit check out. Our design team will create a custom shape by adding a cut line for you.

Do I have to create a bleed around my photo?

You do not have to create a bleed. We can do that for you.

Bleeds are added to designs to ensure that the chosen colour is printed right up to edge of your stickers. A bleed allows for manufacturing tolerances.

If you want to add you own, you can find out how to add a bleed to die cut stickers.

Which material is best for photo die cut stickers?

All of our vinyl and paper materials can make an excellent photo sticker.

A white material can give you the perfect base for vibrant colours, so have a look at our bestselling white vinyl material. Our vinyl materials come with a glossy lamination that makes your stickers waterproof and scratch-resistant.

If you are after an eco-friendly option, check out our biodegradable paper to get the matte finish.

You can also try out the same design on different effect materials like glitter and holographic to add that extra touch to a special occasion.

How can I order a low quantity of photo stickers?

When you order with use, there are no minimum order quantities. You can get as little as one die cut sticker.

For the best price, you can also order a custom sample. This way, you will get 10 stickers for £9 - a true bargain.

Check your design proof

Within 12 working hours of placing your order, our design team is creating a personalised design proof for you.

A magenta line around the edge will indicate the precise cut of your custom-shaped stickers. This line will not be printed on your final sticker. Make sure you are happy with the shape of your die cut stickers and approve your design.

Then you can lean back while your stickers are printed and made ready for shipping.
