Which production techniques do you use?
For the production of your Standard stickers we use the following production technique(s):
Digital printing uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to large home printer, and is cheaper than ‘litho’ printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, less components involved, and no ink drying time necessary.
Offset Lithography printing or Litho printing makes it possible to provide larger quantities at unbeatable prices. This technique creates images and text with wet ink and transferred to each paper sheet with aluminium and rubber plates. This method is more extensive than its 'digital’ counterpart because of the different printing materials that are used. Still, it is the most cost-effective option when you order bigger printed batches.
Which carriers are used for the delivery?
For the delivery of your standard stickers we use multiple carriers. Because of the highest reliability, in most cases we use Startrack.
Are standard stickers fit for usage outside?
Not all types of stickers can be used outside. If you would like to use your stickers outside, we would recommend using PVC or transparent stickers. The lifetime of these stickers is affected by use outside. Other materials can only be used inside.
