This affect is often achieved by contour cutting. For example, if your artwork is made up of letters, then each letter is contour-cut out of the vinyl so it can be stuck down on its own. This then means that there’s no actual background apart from the surface it’s being placed on. Whilst Discount Sticker Printing also offer this feature, clear stickers and labels mean that you can have a similar affect with all of your artwork on a single sheet of clear vinyl material.
These use state-of-the-art white ink printing technology. The same transparent sticker vinyl material is used to provide transparent areas, but if you have any white parts of your artwork you want to keep, then they can be printed as well. Alongside this, gradients can also be printed and any coloured areas are fully opaque, making them more suitable to be placed on dark surfaces. However there is a slight increase in cost for this option due to the additional print time and specialist white ink used.

We can set up your artwork in our design studio, please describe which areas you require to be white or opaque in the notes box on the upload artwork page.
The toners we use to print on clear materials are slightly transparent, this means that for the parts that you require to be opaque or to add full colour images we have to create a white base layer on the artwork behind the colour or image, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner (beneath the CMYK artwork, beneath images or on it’s own).
Your order is usually printed within 2 to 3 working days and then shipped with free next day UK delivery as standard.
Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.
Monday 21st MayWe try our best to meet the stated time but unfortunately due to custom manufacturing each product we can hit problems with artwork, machines and staff so 98% of orders go out on time but 2% of orders can go over by 1-2 working days. Please bear this in mind for time critical jobs.

The parts that you do not require metallic we have to create a white base layer on the artwork, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork, named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner beneath the CMYK artwork.
If you want to put your sticker on a window, you can also select the reverse printing option, so it can be stuck on a surface with the artwork visible from the other side.
Images need to have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. If artwork is generated at a lower resolution, then the quality of the final printed job will be affected.
Our vinyl stickers turn out perfect every time at an incredibly competitive price. Thanks, StickerYou!

Whether you need to move it or keep it stuck, StickerYou has a wide variety of customizable clear options to let your brand’s unique logo be front and centre and let your product shine through. Custom stickers with a clear backing are a great idea way to highlight any product or gift. They allow you to highlight your product in a unique way without ever compromising style. We also think they make for interesting decorative tools for around the home, special events, and as gifts! Clear stickers are also a fantastic idea for any window-facing business. Customize your clear stickers with business logos, sales, wifi passwords, or any information you need your clientele to see. Best of all, white ink prints beautifully vibrant on clear vinyl, so any design or logo you have that uses white is guaranteed to be noticed. Our clear stickers can be printed either front or back facing (which makes them terrific for mirrored surfaces as well), in any size or any shape. All our clear stickers are easily removable without residue, which means you can stick them anywhere anytime that’s convenient for you. Next time you think custom, think clearly – with custom clear stickers from StickerYou.
White ink technology also gives you another advantage. In the past, printing has worked by simply omitting any white colours from the final print, so if you didn’t want a background on your stickers, then you would just make the background white and it wouldn’t be printed. This is fairly straightforward, but if you have white areas within your artwork, then you can be left with printed ‘holes’! White ink technology means that white ink can actually be printed where you have white visual elements in your artwork. This means that virtually everything you want to be printed can be, whilst everything you want left out (such as backgrounds) simply aren’t printed onto the transparent vinyl.
All files supplied must be based in the CMYK colour mode, with no tints lower than 5%.

Normal stickers look great, especially if you have artwork which fills the entire shape (such as a square or circle). However, sometimes, you may be left with a white background which doesn’t really serve much purpose.
Once you’ve done that, just sit back and relax! We’ll print your order in only 2 to 3 working days with 1440dpi high definition printing and eco-friendly solvent inks. This results in vivid detail and stunning colour to really bring out the best in your artwork.
Usually, artwork is printed on the “front” of the material, but with reverse printing, it’s printed facing the adhesive side. This is ideal for windows where the sticker can be placed on the inside and then seen on the outside.

Instead of the normal white satin vinyl we use, the vinyl is transparent and clear. Your artwork is then printed on to it using a special method which fills in coloured areas and makes them almost opaque (if slightly translucent). You’re then left with stickers where only your artwork is visible and the rest is transparent. No more white or coloured backgrounds if you don’t need them!

Normal clear stickers use a transparent vinyl where the white areas of your artwork are simply left blank and therefore remain transparent. However, gradients and any white colours can’t be printed whilst the ink is slightly opaque.
FAQ – Common questions about clear labels and stickers answered!
Looking for a price? Use our online calculator and order in minutes:
Preferred file types are high resolution flattened PDF or EPS files. If you are designing artwork in a vector program such as illustrator please ensure all fonts are converted to outlines or attach all fonts with your order.
Rectangles, squares, circles and more. Just take a look at the drop-down menu. However, with the transparency of clear labels and stickers, the actual shape of the sticker will be almost invisible, with only the shape of the artwork itself on display.
White ink stickers allow the same transparency whilst also being able to print any white parts of your artwork you want to keep. Gradients can also be printed and colours are fully opaque, making them more suitable for dark surfaces.
Think about the appearance you are trying to achieve for your label, some materials may darken or lighten the appearance of your artwork once printed.
The different finishes may also affect the way your labels appear, Matt effects will make the colours look a little dull or faded and a gloss finish might make them appear brighter.
Colour – Convert all colours into CMYK format, with no tints lower than 5%
All artwork supplied to us for print must have at least 3mm bleed and 3mm inner safe area on all trimmed edges. Please do NOT add crop marks.

These use a transparent sticker vinyl material, meaning that your artwork can be printed without any unsightly white backgrounds. Only the coloured areas of your artwork are printed, any white areas are simply left unprinted so they remain transparent. However, this does mean that white areas are not printed, gradients can’t be used and any printed areas may be slightly translucent due to the properties of clear material.
