2 Most Popular Sticker Printing Stocks
Sticker printing has been a process which is greatly in use around the world for several useful and highly productive purposes. Some of us consider stickers only as tools of entertainment while others think they are only used as decorative tools. In fact the uses of custom stickers are almost limitless as they are multipurpose tools with applications in various major aspects of life. They are used as educational tools at institutions, labels for products branding, tools for customizing products before they are finally sold out, car customization tools, advertising and marketing products, entertainment and fun tools for kids, fundraising tools and much more. All the stickers that we see around us are made out of different kinds of sticker stocks. We are going to discuss the three major and most commonly used sticker stocks:
Paper Stock for Stickers
The most commonly used and oldest is the standard paper stock for stickers. It is printable on one side with white color and adhesive on the other. This stock is the cheapest and most common. All the paper stickers we see around us everyday are made out of standard sticker paper stock. After the printing, this stock is coated with a lamination. The lamination may be glossy or matte depending on the requirements of a customer. A lamination provides a much neater and attractive finish to the sticker making it stronger as well. Aside from the lamination, a paper sticker may also be coated with high gloss UV for additional durability and water resistance. The UV coated stickers last longer than ordinary paper stickers and can also withstand water and weather effects up to some extent.
Vinyl Stock for Stickers
Vinyl is the most modernized sticker printing stock. It is the advanced form of a paper stock which is similar to a plastic. The vinyl stock is not as weak as a paper stock and lasts much longer than it. Vinyl has become greatly popular around the world due to its attribute of being naturally weather and water resistant. It does not require any additional high gloss UV coating as it does not bend or break easily even after direct exposure to sunlight and rain. Vinyl stickers are highly recommended for outdoor applications due to their durability and strength. Vinyl stickers last as long as years of application and are highly appreciated in the modern era. Even the car bumper and car window stickers which are required to face extreme weather conditions (hot or cold) are made out of vinyl stock. In short, vinyl stickers are the most reliable and modernized form of stickers. Vinyl stock is available in two types which include solid white vinyl or clear vinyl. You can also printed double sided vinyl stickers for placing on transparent surfaces such as glass doors and windows.
