What Are Custom Clear Stickers?
The custom clear stickers are printed using white ink behind the submitted design, thus help to preserve the opacity. These stickers are ideal for windows, bottles, product labels, and products. You can promote your business using custom clear stickers and can also use them for window signage. They can help you with brand recall, brand strengthening, and brand awareness. These stickers, when properly crafted, can last for years and help promote your brand.
Custom Clear Stickers And Optimal Shape Selection
Are you not sure about the shape that will be ideal for your brand logo or brand name? We’ve got you covered with our list of things to consider when selecting the optimal shape for your custom clear stickers given below;
What Will The Custom Clear Stickers Feature?
Will your custom clear stickers feature your brand logo, or are you opting for typography? If you want to feature both, you will have to select a larger shape and size. You should consider the design’s width and height for selecting which shape will suit it better. As a rule of thumb, the square is ideal for small and minimalistic designs, the rectangle offers extra width enabling you to adjust the text, and the circle or oval is best-suited to logos of similar form.
Where Will The Stickers Be Used?
Do you plan on using your custom clear stickers as a product, or are they going to be incorporated into your packaging as a packaging label? If you have a particular surface application in mind already, then it is important to measure the area’s dimensions and to ensure that the shape and size you choose for your stickers aren’t too big or too small for the said area.
Going For A Colored Background?
Will your stickers be contrasting the applied area? A square or a rectangular shape will stand out, given that your design features a colored background. On the other hand, the circle or oval shape can be used to complement printed typography or logo.

How To Design Captivating Artwork For Your Custom Clear Stickers
If you want your customers to notice your stickers, you have to ensure that your custom clear stickers feature artwork that is alluring and enticing. The following can help you effectively design your artwork to have a greater impact on your customers;
Getting The Shape & Size Right
We suggest that you use a ruler or tape measure to get the surface’s width and height where you will be applying your custom clear stickers and ensure that your sticker size is a bit smaller than this. The shape of the sticker primarily depends on where you wish to place the stickers.
Material Selection Is Crucial
Each material offers different pros, and that’s why selecting the right material for your custom clear stickers is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. When you reach out to GoTo Packaging, our packaging experts will help you select the optimal material for your stickers.
Fonts & Colors Used Should Be Brand Specific
It is important to ensure that your custom clear stickers feature colors and fonts that are synonymous with your brand colors and fonts. That’s the only way you can use these stickers to help your customers with brand recall. Bear in mind that light-colored text looks best on a dark background and vice versa.
Avoid Using Low-Resolution Images
Why? Because the low-resolution images will be blurry once they have been printed onto the sticker. You should always opt for high-definition images to ensure that your printed stickers look crisp with high print quality.
Ensure Bleed To Achieve A Cleaner Look
It is strongly recommended that you extend your background beyond the cut line, thus preventing the thin white edges from showing. It is especially advised for stickers that are cut to size because the cutting machines could end up with slight differences in cuts.

You can use add-ons to make tweaks to your custom clear stickers. These additional features can help you create distinct custom clear stickers that can attract customers and help you with brand recall and brand promotion. Some of the popular add-ons are listed below;
- Spot UV

You can use this add-on to seal the color while getting a sheen on your custom clear stickers. Furthermore, it also imparts resistance against moisture. Spot UV is also referred to as the raised ink technique and uses UV to cure specific areas on your stickers.
Embossing and debossing helps you create tactile feedback on your stickers. Specifically speaking, embossing can help you to create raised silhouettes on your sticker’s material. It is a great way of attracting your customers and getting them to focus on specific areas on the stickers.
Debossing helps you create depressed imprints on your stickers and is the opposite of embossing. Embossing and debossing work best when they are combined with spot UV and hot stamping.
Hot stamping can help you impart various effects to your clear custom stickers. The list of effects includes matte, glossy, metallic, and holographic effects.
These add-ons can be used as stand-alone additions, or they can be used in different combinations to create unique custom clear stickers for your business.

Printing Techniques For Custom Clear Stickers
GoTo Packaging ensures high print quality and cost-effectiveness by relying on different printing techniques. The selection of printing technique is crucial to ensure that your custom clear stickers are effective and stand out. Some of the commonly used printing techniques are listed below;
- Screen Printing
- Flexography Printing
- Offset Printing
- Digital Printing
Images are transferred onto the sticker material using synthetic screens for this particular printing method. It is one of the oldest printing techniques but is still employed even today because of its effectiveness. The process is simple in comparison with other printing techniques.
You can print higher quantities of custom clear stickers using the flexography printing method. It uses a master print that is affixed to the plate. The plate then makes rolls over the sticker material and leaves impressions on it. This printing technique offers a quick turnaround time.
The offset printing offers exceptional print quality but becomes expensive for low-volume printing. That’s why it is reserved for bulk orders only. It relies on a rubber cylinder or plate for transferring the image onto the material.
Digital printing offers good print quality, quick turnaround time, and the option of incorporating design changes later on during the production phase. It is cost-effective for low-volume orders and doesn’t require any setup.
