Getting started with Stickers

A sticker or self-adhesive media is an excellent way of decorating any item that does not fit under a heat press or cannot retain the heat. The sticker is for many years a media to express your message or logo outdoors. As we offer a range of self-adhesive PET film in combination with Toner it is completely waterproof. Display your artwork everywhere you want with the High tack or Standard tack PET film. You can give you sticker a better appearance by using a cutting plotter to contour cut your design. Or apply an extra layer of Doming or TheMagicTouch Coverseal to have a high-end result.
