Sometimes, the world of custom stickers can get confusing. You have to decipher and understand many terms and aspects to get your perfect sticker.
But worry not, we are here to help you out. In this article, we will look at glossy clear stickers. If you are confused about the difference between glossy and a clear sticker, this is for you.
The term glossy refers to the laminate applied to your printed sticker, whereas clear refers to the material the sticker is printed on. So both terms refer to a completely different part of the manufacturing process.
What is a clear sticker?
Clear stickers are printed onto transparent, nearly invisible materials. We offer clear vinyl stickers as well as an eco-friendly clear sticker option made from wood pulp. Both are perfect for sleek, minimalist looks and luxurious packaging.
We can print both, full colour and white on our clear material. When we print colour directly onto the material, it creates a stunning stained-glass effect. If you want certain parts of your design to appear in full colour instead, we simply print white between the material and your colour of choice.
What is a sticker with a glossy finish?
Stickers with a glossy finish are laminated stickers. Have you ever wondered how stickers get a glossy or matte finish? That does not depend on the material, but on the lamination.
When a clear gloss laminate is applied, it will result in a glossy sticker. But lamination is not just for aesthetics. It also protects your stickers by making them water- and scratch-proof and UV resistant - perfect for outdoor use.
Should stickers have a glossy or matte finish?
Deciding on a matte or glossy finish can be difficult. Especially as the different laminates complete change the look of your sticker. Let's have a look at which effect you like best:
- A gloss lamination adds extra shine to your stickers. That is because the material can reflect light, which makes your stickers even more eye-catching.
- Matte laminate gives your stickers a frosted finish that is non-reflective. It adds a grainy texture on top of your design.
Are glossy stickers better?
When you are looking to invest in clear stickers, we recommend a glossy finish. It makes your stickers pop and highlights their transparency.
No matter if you want to add white ink or are going for a completely transparent look, a gloss laminate will make your stickers appear more elegant, especially when you are applying them to glass or any other transparent surface.
