What Are Custom Die Cut Stickers?
Custom die stickers are a kind of stickers that can be used to spell out your company name or show off its logo. You can apply them easily onto different surfaces, including packaging, shopping bags, and other items. They can help customers associate their experience with your company over time. GoTo Packaging allows you to print them in conventional shapes and custom shapes.
Choosing the Best Shapes for Your Custom Die Cut Stickers
When it comes to custom die cut stickers, it is important that you choose the best possible shape for achieving maximum impact. If you’re not sure about which shape would best fit your logo or company name, the following questions can help you determine the size and shape of your custom die cut stickers;
Where Will You Be Applying The Stickers?
Are you going to be using your custom die cut stickers as a product or packaging label? If you have a specific surface application in mind already, you need to measure the display area’s dimensions, thus ensuring that the size chosen isn’t too big or small for this area.
What Will Be Features On Custom Die Cut Stickers?
Are your custom die cut stickers going to be designed in typography, or will they be focused on your logo? You’ll have to choose the shape and size accordingly for both of these options. Take into consideration the design’s width and height to figure out which shape will be the optimal fit for your design. Square works for minimalistic and smaller designs. On the other hand, the rectangle offers extra width, allowing for larger text to be accommodated, while an oval or circle shape is used for this form’s logos.
Will You Be Using Colored Background?
Are your custom die cut stickers going to be contrasting the area that they will be applied to? A rectangle or square shape stands out if your design features a colored background. On the other hand, an oval or circle can complement your logo or printed typography.

How To Design Effective Artwork For Your Custom Die Cut Stickers
Do you intend to use your custom die cut stickers for your marketing campaigns? If yes, then you have to design effective artwork to ensure its success. The following design tips can help you create elegant and enticing artwork for your custom die cut stickers;
Optimal Shape & Size
Measure the surface where you’re planning to apply the custom die cut stickers. The ideal sticker size should be a bit smaller than this measured size. The shape will depend on where you will be placing the stickers. We suggest that you follow the shape of the packaging when you’re using stickers for your products. On the other hand, if you’re going to be using these stickers for a specific promotion, you can opt for any shape that fits your brand.
The Selection Of Material
Different materials will offer different pros, and that’s why it is important to select the optimal material for your custom die cut stickers. For instance, white vinyl is advised for outdoor use since it offers water and UV resistance while being capable of surviving varying temperatures.
Choose Colors & Fonts That Are Brand-Specific
Apart from this obvious branding suggestion, keep in mind that light-colored text works best with a dark background and vice versa. If you’re not sure about which colors would work best for your business, give us a call, and our packaging experts will help you make the right decision.
Quality Of Images
The low-resolution images will offer blurry results. That’s why it is important to select high-resolution images for your custom die cut stickers.
Get A Cleaner Look With Bleed
You should always ensure that your background is extended beyond the cut line, thus preventing thin white edges from showing in the final product. This tip is really useful for cut-to-size stickers where you might experience a slight difference in cuts because of cutting machines.
