How do I order stickers?

If you're new to StickerApp and need some help placing an order, here's a simple guide for you

Step 1: Choosing the Correct Color Mode – CMYK

For the best color accuracy on your stickers, begin your design in CMYK mode. Converting from RGB to CMYK can be done, but it may cause shifts in color:

Photoshop: Open your file, navigate to 'Image' → 'Mode' → 'CMYK'.
Illustrator: Open your file, choose 'File' → 'Document Color Mode' → 'CMYK'.

For guidance, here’s a visual tutorial on the conversion process: [Insert Image Here]

Step 2: Crafting Your Cutline

Ensure your cutline is exact and matches the size you want your sticker:

Work with a vector file.
Duplicate your design onto a new layer for the cutline.
Merge and unite using Pathfinder tools.
Apply and name the spot color “die cut” (C:0%, M:100%, Y:0%, K:0%).
Go to 'Object' → 'Path' → 'Offset Path' and set it to 0.2cm or 2mm with a miter limit of 4.

Step 3: Designating Material Effects

Specify how you want the special material effects applied to your sticker design:


Leave a comment on your order detailing which colors or sections should have the effect. Clear instructions help us understand and execute your vision.


Use transparency in your uploaded art to indicate where you want the material effect. Full transparency will show the pure material, while lower opacity will result in a colored material effect. A comment with directions is still beneficial.


Include a mask layer in your file, or email us the mask. This layer is crucial for complex designs where specific parts require the effect. Formats like PSD, AI, TIFF, or PDF with layers are preferred, but you can also send a non-layered file for us to work with.

By providing clear comments, using transparency, or sending a mask layer, we can proceed to production without needing final proof, speeding up the process. If you want proof, mention this in your comment, and we'll send you a digital proof showing the intended material effects marked in flat grey.

Step 4: Effect Layer for Detailed Designs For intricate designs, create an effect layer:

In Photoshop, accentuate details by changing their color, or make a separate layer to isolate these details from the rest of the design.
