Here are some general guidelines on our artwork requirements for custom stickers and labels. This does not include transfer stickers or vinyl lettering. Please note the requirements for our other products will vary.
Artwork should be vector files or raster images with at least 300 PPI. If your artwork is below 300 PPI, we’ll reach out during proofing to work with you.

Border requirements (minimum and standard size)
Artwork will be proofed with our standard border size. If you’d like a smaller border size, please specify this when you upload your artwork.
Our standard border size is .1” (1/10”)
Our minimum border requirement is .0625 (1/16”)
If you’d like your artwork to have a bleed, we have a bleed requirement of .0625 (1/16”) surrounding the cutline. This cannot be changed. Please note that not all artwork will qualify for full-bleed printing.
Cut line requirements
If you’d like to indicate a specific cut line, we recommend doing so with a .05 - 1 pt magenta stroke. This does not need to be on a separate layer or named “cut line”.
It is not necessary to specify a cut line.

Font size requirements:
We recommend a minimum font size of 6pt for adequate legibility. If your font size is illegible, we'll reach out during proofing to work with you.
Line thickness requirements:
We recommend a minimum line thickness of 1 pt to ensure quality and legibility. If your line is illegible, we'll reach out during proofing to work with you.
To ensure the closest match to your desired color for print, we recommend CMYK colors.
We also offer a variety of custom sticker templates to help format and design your stickers!
