What is rainbow holographic vinyl?

It is the holographic film we print your stickers and labels onto. The vinyl we use already comes with the holographic effect, which means that we can print directly onto the material to create stunning effects.

Holographic vinyl is a type of metallized polyester film that has been coated with a metallic film. This type of vinyl is used to create stickers and labels that have a colourful, three-dimensional appearance.

The metallized film can have different effects. We use them for our glitter stickers, silver stickers, gold stickers and, of course, a holographic vinyl sticker.

How to print onto holographic sticker paper

The printing process for a holographic vinyl sticker is rather straightforward. We can print different colours onto the material with or without white ink to play with the holographic effect.

  • When we print colour directly onto the material, we can create a metallic effect for that colour.

  • Printing white in between the material and the colour dilutes the holographic effect and results in an opaque colour.

  • Do not underestimate the power of the holographic material - let it shine through as it is!

If you want to print your own holographic stickers with a standard inkjet printer, you need to find printable vinyl. After all, you do not want the vinyl to melt or damage your printer. Most inkjet printers are fine with paper, but vinyl can be more difficult. Be sure to check before you order your holographic material.

If you want to create your own white layers, you might have to complete several print runs. Make sure the ink dries evenly before you apply another top layer of colour. For a professional finish, think about investing in a Cricut maker.

Most professional sticker printing companies use digital printers or laser printers with premium materials, which can often be a more cost-effective option for you.

Using your holographic vinyl stickers

There are endless possibilities when it comes to using holographic vinyl stickers. You can use them on almost all flat surfaces for DIY projects, as decorations or to brand your products.

The vibrant colours and metallic sheen will add an extra touch of glamour to anything they are used on.

If you want to hand your stickers out to customers, we recommend investing in individually cut die cut stickers. They make the perfect handouts.

Are you looking for ways to brand your products instead? Then opt for holographic labels to guarantee an easy application process. Our labels are printed on sheets, which makes your stickers much easier to peel.
