Are you ready to find out more? Then let us dive right in.
What is a kiss cut sticker?
Kiss cut stickers are custom stickers that can be cut into any shape. What makes them special is the added border around the custom shaped part of your sticker.
This is because your kiss cut sticker is cut through the material layer only, leaving the paper backing intact.
That leaves a border around your sticker. Now, the peelable part of your stickers can still be cut around the edge of your sticker design. The extra border does, however, allow for easy peeling.
You can see the different kiss cut lines in the design proof below. The magenta line indicates the edge of your sticker, whereas the green line depicts the outline of the peelable part of your kiss cuts.
Remember, kiss cutting only refers to the way your stickers are cut. It does not entail which material your stickers are printed onto. You can choose from any of our materials to create amazing looks.
Individually cut stickers vs kiss cut
As you can see in the image below, kiss cut stickers arrive individually cut.
Sticker sheets come with all the advantages of a kiss cut sticker. Through the extra material, they are easy to peel. Plus, the sheet is super easy to store.
If you are looking for stickers without any border, check out die cut stickers. These are cut through the sticker material and the paper backing.

What are the best sizes for kiss cut stickers?
There is no one-fits all size when it comes to custom stickers. You can choose any sticker size to make your stickers fit the area you want them to cover.
Your perfect kiss cut sticker size depends on a) the size of the surface you want to stick your stickers to and b) how much space you want your stickers to cover.
Remember that your kiss cut sticker will come with a border. When ordering your stickers, the size you enter refers to the entire sticker; the peelable area, and the border.
If there is no specific area you want to cover, or you are looking to sell your stickers, stick to the most popular size ranges for kiss cut stickers.
These range from 5 to 10 cm, which makes them perfect for applying to laptops and phones.
