A vinyl die cut sticker is a sticker made out of a plastic-based material that is individually cut around the edge of your design.
You could also call them custom shaped stickers. But the term die cut describes the way your sticker is cut. You can learn more about that by reading our blog post on what is a die cut sticker.
While die cut stickers describe the way your stickers are cut, vinyl stickers tell you what your stickers are made from.
However, vinyl is a broad term, and we offer a wide selection of materials, from standard white material to premium effects.
How are vinyl die cut stickers used?
You should always use a vinyl sticker for outdoor use and applications where your sticker is likely to come into contact with water.
Our die cut stickers are laminated with a glossy, clear coat that protects the printed layer of your sticker. This keeps your artwork looking great, no matter the conditions.
As individually cut and custom shaped stickers, die cut stickers make perfect event handouts or giveaways. Their unique shape and cut is ideal for delicate designs that stand out.
The beauty of custom die cut stickers is that you can make them work for you: no matter if you are looking for logo stickers for your business, special promotion stickers for your brand, or even just want to print stickers for personal use.

What are vinyl die cut labels?
You can imagine die cut labels just like die cut stickers. The main difference is that labels are printed onto a sheet, whereas stickers are cut individually.
Die cut labels still have a custom shape. However, they are only cut through the vinyl layer while the backing paper stays intact. This makes labels easier to peel, ideal for when you have to apply hundreds of product labels at a time.
