Are kiss cut stickers more expensive than other stickers?

Kiss cut stickers are custom shaped stickers with an added border and extra backing material around your sticker design. Does that mean they are more expensive than other sticker options? Or are they cheaper because there is less cutting involved?

The answer is: it depends. In the world of custom stickers, there is no static pricing. After all, you can order your kiss cut stickers in any size, create a custom shape and select different materials.

All of these elements influence the price of your stickers. So let's find out how to get the best possible price when ordering stickers.

Finding the right material for your kiss cuts

Your sticker material majorly influences the price of your stickers.

Remember, kiss cut only refers to how your stickers are cut, namely only through the material layer, while the paper backing stays intact.

That means you can have your kiss cut stickers printed onto any of our materials.

When you head over to the kiss cut stickers page, you can browse your material option by clicking "choose your material". The screen-grab below shows this.

If you are after a sticker material with outdoor durability, opt for vinyl stickers with UV lamination. This ensures that your kiss cut stickers will withstand the elements.

Depending on your choice, the pricing calculator will automatically update your quote.

Die cut stickers vs. kiss cut stickers

Are die cut stickers more cost-effective than kiss cut stickers? Let's find out.

Die cut and kiss cut stickers are both custom shaped sticker options. However, the main difference between die cut and kiss cut stickers is that die cut stickers are cut through vinyl and paper backing.

This means that the edge of your design is the edge of your sticker. Your die cut sticker will therefore have the exact shape of your custom design. You can see the difference in the example below.

Have a look at the pricing breakdown for both, die cut and kiss cut stickers. The examples refer to stickers printed onto our bestselling white vinyl at a versatile size of 5x5cm.

Since the cost for each sticker option is the same, you might need help deciding when to use which sticker.

We recommend using kiss-cut stickers if you want stickers you can easily peel, or have a very delicate design that needs the extra backing. You can find out more about the best ways to use kiss cut stickers here.
