Reminder: What is a kiss cut sticker?

Kiss cut stickers can be cut in any custom shape you can think of. However, what differentiates them from die cut stickers is that they are cut differently.

Kiss cut stickers are only cut through the sticker material. The paper backing stays intact. This leaves a border around your stickers, as you can see in the image below. Learn about them in our article "What is a kiss cut sticker?"

On the other hand, die cut stickers are cut through the material layer as well as the backing paper. This means that your entire sticker is cut in the exact shape of your design. Dive deeper into the difference between die cut and kiss cut stickers here.

Why should you use kiss cut stickers

The best ways to use kiss cut stickers

And kiss cut stickers are more than perfect for this. They are a blank canvas you can turn into your customised marketing tool. Here are the best ways you can do just that:

Easy-to-peel stickers

When you have a delicate design with intricate cut lines, or you simply want to give customers and clients the best possible experience, kiss cuts are just what you need.

The extra paper baking around your stickers allows you or customers to easily peel your stickers away from the backing paper.

This means you can peel these stickers much faster than a custom shaped die cut sticker or any other traditionally shaped stickers.

Custom logo stickers for your business

A kiss cut sticker is the perfect way to unleash your marketing potential and build awareness for your business.

Now, let's be clear. Branding is much more than sticking a logo sticker onto everything you sell. But, that does not mean that they cannot help.

In fact, a well-designed logo can come to represent what your brand stands for and believes in. It becomes a visual shortcut that makes it easier for consumers to remember and engage with your business. Learn more about how logo stickers can boost your branding in 2022 here.

Did you know the most powerful thing about stickers? They fly under the radar.

That might sound counter-intuitive after we have just spoken about creating visibility. But in this case, it is an absolute advantage.

When you give away free stickers, they will not be seen as just another way to advertise a product. Rather, we think of free stickers as gifts.

The giving of gifts is such a powerful marketing tool because it ignites two reactions: 1) it ignites positive emotions and 2) the receiver feels like they "owe" you a favour.

This can help you increase your sales or even your positive reviews are consumers are inclined to trust your business more.

To give them the best possible experience, use a vinyl sticker. These stickers have a UV lamination on top of the printed surface. This gives them outdoor durability and makes them waterproof.
