Stickers or Decals?

ALL THE QUESTIONS

Kiss Cut? Die Cut? What does all of it mean, and what should I choose?

Full Color Stickers in Matte or Glossy Finish

As a digital printing company, Vinyl Fire offers full-color “die-cut” style stickers that can be custom printed and cut just about any size you could want them. Stickers are made to peel and stick to just about anything you could want.

Stickers are often laminated to further protect them against fading in the sun, but it is not always required. Non-laminated stickers should hold up for 6 months to 1 year, depending on where they are used; and laminated stickers should be good for 2 to 3 years.

Premium Vinyl, Classic Decals in (Usually) White or Black

If you’d prefer the classic look of a cut vinyl decal, we can do that too. Instead of being cut through, decals are “kiss-cut” (that is, that the blade only “kisses” the backing) and all of the unwanted elements are picked out (or “weeded”) with small knives. Depending on the level of detail, decals may have to be produced to be larger than a sticker would be.

We carry white and black vinyl for decals, and can order other colors as needed. Higher minimum orders may be required for specialty colors or finishes.

Decals are usually single-color only, but since we are a digital printing company we can also print decals in two or more colors.

Since we make decals on premium, vehicle-grade material, they have the longest life - about 5 to 7 years in most cases. Printed decals aren’t UV protected, though, and may fade within 1 to 2 years.
