    FAQ


    What is the free design service?

    At Discount Sticker Printing, we can provide an optional expert design to go with your label or sticker printing order. It's completely free for all Pro orders, or comes with a small additional charge for Basic orders.

    Why should I use it instead of a template design?

    All designs we create are fully unique and tailored to our customers' needs, goals and brand theme. That means you don't need to settle for a template-based design which is already used by many other businesses.

    Do I need to know anything about print specifications?

    Not at all. As we'll be creating the design for you, we'll also make sure it meets all our printing specifications. That's one less thing to worry about.

    What if I don't have any ideas yet?

    You may have preferred to use a template for some design inspiration, but our graphic designers are experts at generating unique ideas that look good and fulfil your objectives.

    What if I already have my own design?

    Perfect - just select "Upload artwork" during checkout to send us your print-ready design. All uploads come with our Artwork Check Guarantee where we'll make sure it meets all specifications before we start printing.

    How do I ask for amendments to the design?

    Once the bespoke design is ready, we'll send you an email with a link where you can view it. This will also give you the chance to communicate with your designer and request any amendments.

    How long will it take?

    Ordering an optional free design typically adds 1 to 3 working days to our usual turnaround times.

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

    • Colour

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

    • 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.
