Food stickers

Our custom food stickers are ideal for all types of food products. You can choose any shape, size and finish, and even opt for 100% food-safe stickers which can be directly applied to edible products.

  1. Printed food stickers in any shape, size and finish – with your own artwork or a free optional design
  2. Polypropylene vinyl is waterproof and safe on the outside of any food packaging, whereas unvarnished paper is food-safe even for placement directly on food
  3. Class-leading Xeikon printing for razor sharp detail and stunning colour depth
  4. Fast turnaround as standard, and FREE next-day UK delivery after dispatch
With food stickers, we only use specific materials, adhesives and toners which are safe for use with food products. This allows you to choose between two material types:

  • Polypropylene vinyl - This is more durable and waterproof, but only safe for the outside of food packaging (i.e. a bottle, box, jar or container).
  • Paper – This is more cost-effective, and if you choose unvarnished, it’s food-safe even when placed directly on the food itself.
With materials to suit your needs, along with fully customisable sizes and high-res Xeikon printing, you’ll have food stickers which enhance the quality of your brand at a very affordable price.

  • Product Information

    Stickers are a critical component of any food product. After all, many people won’t know how tasty those morsels are until they’ve had a chance to eat them. That’s where the sticker plays its part to enhance the perception of value and make the food appear as delicious as possible. The text and imagery play important parts, but the overall quality is crucial to making the right first impression. That’s why we only use Xeikon 3300 printers for sharpness and colour which rival any global brand.

    Customisation and service
    You can choose any shape, size and finish to tailor them to your exact needs. You can also choose from two material options depending on the level of food-safety required. And with the ability to upload your own artwork, or receive a FREE bespoke design if you don’t have your own, you can make your custom food stickers look exactly how you need them. All our food stickers come with 3-4 working day turnaround as standard, and FREE next-day UK delivery after dispatch for speedy arrival. To find out more about the various options, including the food-safe properties, please click the FAQ tab above.

  • FAQ

    Are the stickers food-safe?

    We make all our stickers as safe as possible with carefully selected materials, adhesives and toners. This results in food-safe stickers with all certifications depending on the application you require. With polypropylene, they’re food-safe on the outside of packaging, whereas with unvarnished paper, they can be applied directly on the edible item itself. If in doubt, please get in touch.

    What are the other benefits of the materials?
    Polypropylene is waterproof, weatherproof, tear-resistant and generally more durable. Paper is more cost-effective.

    What finishes can I choose from?
    You have the choice of matt, gloss, metallic, clear and textured paper. Please note that certain finishes (metallic and clear) are polypropylene only.

    What about vinyl?
    Standard PVC vinyl is considered too toxic for food applications. This is why we offer polypropylene. It has almost the exact same properties as vinyl, but it’s safe for use with food. That’s why it’s the industry-standard alternative to paper in the food production industry.

    Can I choose any shape and size?
    Of course! You can choose any height and width right down to the exact millimetre, along with a whole host of shapes including custom cut.

    What do you use to assure quality?
    We’ve proud to use industry-leading Xeikon 3300 presses. These state-of-the-art machines provide detail and colour depth which easily rival any major brand. Plus, with such efficient run-speed, we can still offer this level of quality with some of the UK’s lowest prices. No need to sacrifice one for the other!

    What about artwork?
    You can upload your own print-ready artwork during the order process, where you’ll also find our artwork guidelines.
    If you don’t have your own design yet – don’t worry. Our in-house graphic design team can create one for you FREE of charge. Just upload any images you would like during the order process and then let us know how you want your stickers to look. We’ll keep working on the design until you’re happy.

      To download our checklist please click here.

    • File Types

      Preferred file types are high resolution flattened PDF or EPS files. If you are designing artwork in a vector program such as illustrator please ensure all fonts are converted to outlines or attach all fonts with your order.

      High resolution AI, PSD or JPEG files are also accepted.

      For a more in-depth guide about file types click here.

    • Colour

      All files supplied must be based in the CMYK colour mode, with no tints lower than 5%.

      For a more in-depth guide about colour click here.

    • Font

      To avoid any issues, make the fonts part of your original document through embedding, flattening or converting them to curves in the chosen design program.

      For a more in-depth guide about font click here.

    • Bleed & Safe Area

      All artwork supplied to us for print must have at least 3mm bleed and 3mm inner safe area on all trimmed edges. Please do NOT add crop marks.

      For a more in-depth guide about bleed click here.

    • Resolution

      Images need to have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. If artwork is generated at a lower resolution, then the quality of the final printed job will be affected.

      For a more in-depth guide about resolution click here.

    • Clear Labels with Opaque & White Elements

      The toners we use to print on clear materials are slightly transparent, this means that for the parts that you require to be opaque or to add full colour images we have to create a white base layer on the artwork behind the colour or image, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner (beneath the CMYK artwork, beneath images or on it's own).

      We can set up your artwork in our design studio, please describe which areas you require to be white or opaque in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

      For an in-depth guide of how to setup labels with white elements please click here.

    • Labels with Metallic Elements

      The way we create metallic colours is by using a silver substrate and applying a thin layer of CMYK toner to create the metallic colour required, when ordering please describe the colour required (or give the metallic swatch code from our color logic sheet which is included in all sample packs and can be ordered here FREE of charge) in the notes box at the upload artwork stage.

      The parts that you do not require metallic we have to create a white base layer on the artwork, this is achieved by creating a separate layer on your artwork, named “white” and anywhere our press finds this colour it will print white toner beneath the CMYK artwork.

      Any white parts on your design that are not named “white” will be printed in a silver metallic.

      We can set up your white base for you here in our design studio, please describe which areas you do not require metallic in the notes box on the upload artwork page.

      Please be aware that if additional set up is required by our design studio this may delay turnaround time.

      For an in-depth guide of how to setup labels with metallic elements please click here.

    • Material & Finish Options

      Think about the appearance you are trying to achieve for your label, some materials may darken or lighten the appearance of your artwork once printed.

      The different finishes may also affect the way your labels appear, Matt effects will make the colours look a little dull or faded and a gloss finish might make them appear brighter.
