White Ink Stickers

Stickers with White Ink

White ink is popular for stickers that are printed on clear vinyl for a range of applications including product labeling, packaging, promotional stickers and window graphics.

Printco offers white ink sticker and label printing in small and large quantity orders, and all of our clear vinyl stickers are cut to any custom shape at no extra charge.

These stickers and labels are great for use on dark surfaces, where the white ink on a clear background creates a stylish contrast. White ink can also be used as an underpin, to create an opaque colour print onto clear labels.

Our white ink stickers are printed on durable matt or gloss vinyl. The matt finish has a smooth satin sheen, while gloss has a shine finish. The vinyl is waterproof and UV stable to protect against fading. These stickers can be cut to any size or shape required.

These stickers are waterproof and UV stable, and can be laminated for further durability and scuff resistance.
Available with a brilliant gloss coating, or a smooth matt finish depending on your preference and application requirements.
Our standard vinyl stickers are supplied on sheets, or on rolls on request.

Templates and Cut Lines

Sticker vector
All vinyl stickers are made to order and can be produced in any shape or size.

Important: Your sticker should be supplied in the correct size for print, which should match the size ordered. If you need us to scale your artwork, you must let us know. We can scale any artwork that fits your order proportionally but we cannot alter the dimensions of your artwork without quoting for this.

For any custom shaped sticker, we require a separate file with a vector cut line as follows:

Cut lines:
- This should be one continuous line with no internal cut-outs
- The cut line should be 100% magenta but any colour will work
- It should be supplied on a separate layer or as a vector, if the line is rasterised to the image it will print in your artwork
- Any fonts in your design should be outlined or converted to curves
- When creating your custom sticker artwork, don't forget that regular bleed and safety margin rules apply. 

Sticker Resolution
Sticker resolution
To ensure high quality sticker printing resolution, images should be supplied in 300 dpi at 100% of the final output size. DPI stands for dots per inch. The higher dots per inch, the better the sticker print quality. Artwork printed at 300 dpi will present crisp images and sharp text and line art, while artwork printed at 72 dpi will present blurry, pixelated images and text. Please note that many images found on the internet will be 72 dpi and are therefore will not be optimised for high quality printing.
Clear / Transparent Stickers
Clear / Transparent Stickers
We offer a full colour (process) print on clear stickers. This will result in a translucent print. These cost effective stickers are ideal for sticking onto white or light coloured surfaces, as this creates a suitable opaque background. They are not suitable for sticking to darker coloured surfaces without a white underpin print. They are also perfect for sticking onto clear surfaces, as long as as you are looking for a translucent result.

White on clear
Printed in gloss (high shine) or lustre matt to suit your requirement.
File Formats
We highly recommend supplying your graphics in a vector format for optimal output. We accept PDF, EPS, SVG, AI, TIF, JPG & PNG, supplied in 300 dpi or higher as applicable.
Colours
When creating your artwork, please ensure that the colour space is set up as CMYK within the software application.
Bleeds & Safety Margin
Bleeds & Safety Margin
We require artwork to be supplied in the correct size with a 3 mm bleed, and a 3 mm safety margin.

The bleed is the area that will be trimmed off when cutting to size. Your artwork must extend to the edge of the bleed, this cannot be white space. Our guillotines need this safety area to account for variations in cutting accuracy, and to avoid white edges in your finished product. For example, if your artwork is 85 mm x 55 mm then you need to add 6 mm in total so that your artwork size will be 91 mm x 61 mm. We will cut away the bleed area, leaving you with a finished size of 85 mm x 55 mm.

Text and pertinent graphics should be 3 mm inside the cut line on each side. This will ensure no text or graphics are trimmed off during finishing.

If you have any questions or would like us to check your artwork prior to ordering, please email us on info@printco.ie and we'd be happy to help. We offer in-house graphic design, and can quote you on any of your custom design needs. Here are some sample prices, but if you send us your job spec we can provide a formal quote.
