How do you add holographic to stickers?
You might wonder, what makes holographic stickers holographic? You do not have to submit special holographic images to create a holographic sticker, and we do not add a particular laminate for that to happen.
Instead, we print holographic stickers onto a unique vinyl with an eye-catching rainbow effect. This means we do not have to "print" a holographic effect. We simply use material with an added iridescent shine.
What is a holographic colour sticker?
As we are working with a holographic base, we can add any colour on top of that to create a holographic colour sticker.
When we print colour directly onto the material, it creates a beautiful metallic look. However, if you only want certain parts of your artwork to have this effect, we simply print two layers of ink.
We add white behind your chosen colour to create an opaque and "normal" look. The double layer of ink dilutes the effect and gives you a vibrant finish.
And what is a glitter sticker?
Now, among all these terms, do not confuse holographic and glitter stickers. These stickers are printed onto completely different materials, which will result in alternate looks.
Holographic stickers are ideal if you are after a metallic look. Glitter stickers, on the other hand, are much more sparkly. You can see them in the picture below.
This makes glitter stickers perfect for luxurious product packaging or a playful sticker, whereas recommend using holographic stickers for a more sleek look or for custom security holograms.
