If you have questions before ordering, then let us clear them up.

Read on for our must-know guide on custom vinyl sticker printing so that you can get started today.

What Are the Types of Vinyl?

There are a number of different types of vinyl that you may get stickers printed on.

Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

White vinyl is extremely durable. It is good for both indoor and outdoor use as it is weather resistant.

Clear vinyl is similar but appears transparent when it is applied.

To get bolder images, white ink is often applied behind the graphic.

Adhesive surfaces can be on both the front and back, for the creation of vinyl car sticker printing.

Static cling vinyl can be clear or white and does not need an adhesive.

Instead, a static charge lets it stick to smooth surfaces such as glass and plastic.

This can be placed on the front or back of the sticker.

How Do I Provide Artwork?

You can email artwork to info@azbanners.com. Clearly state your name and order number in the body of the email.

Alternatively, this can be done on the custom vinyl sticker printing order page. Files can be in .jpg, .tiff, .eps, .pdf, & ai formats. The maximum file upload size is 64MB.

For bitmap images, you should send the files set at 100-150 DPI.

A resolution greater than 200 will not provide any advantage, as our 1440 DPI printer can give the adequate resolution needed in lower DPI files.

Can You Create Artwork for Me?

All of our products can be created using a number of methods.

You can provide your own designs that we can add to stickers.

If it needs rectifying or may not work correctly, we will be sure to let you know.

Alternatively, we can design the stickers for you.

If you have a logo or design you want to incorporate, you can supply this and let us see what our amazing designers come up with.

What Coatings Go on Vinyl Stickers?

Stickers can come in gloss and matt finishes.

Gloss will provide a shiny look, that has the glare of light reflecting off it.

Gloss stickers tend to look fresher for longer.

Matte still protects the sticker itself.

However, it does not give off the glare associated with gloss, making it look more natural.

Some stickers can even have UV coating applied.

This protects them from the sun’s harmful rays.

It keeps colors fresher for longer and gives an element of weather resistance.

Can You Provide Vinyl Car Coatings?

If you are looking to customize your car, for marketing, branding, or sponsorship, we do provide vinyl car sticker printing for decals.

These products are made from high-quality vinyl, making them very durable.

They can be die-cut into a number of shapes and sizes, with bold, eye-catching colors.

All our graphics are matched with the year and model of the car they will go on.

This ensures that any curves and contours in the chassis do not impact the shape of the design.

We can even wrap-around fitting and features on the vehicle itself.

You can contact us for a design, or supply your own.

Text-only graphics will cost less than graphic logos and designs.

If you have your own logo, you can also supply this for us to create the layout with text.

Do You Provide Vinyl Sticker Printing Services for Windows?

If you have a commercial space, you can benefit hugely from our window decals for both internal and external displays.

They can transform a glass surface into a full-color branding experience, attracting people to your business or advertising products, events, and offers.

All of our vinyl sticker printing is done by looking at the space and building first.

This is to check the design will have the correct impact and shape.

All we need are exterior photos and measurements of your space.

If you are looking to add privacy, we can do this for you.

One-way viewing is available, so you can still see the outside environment.

Helmet Stickers

A helmet sticker is a great way to brand your team, be it a professional organization or an amateur sports group.

Stickers on a football helmet have been a tradition since the sixties.

They are great as an incentive for players and teams.

Helmet stickers require a little more care and attention than other vinyl stickers.

They need to accommodate the curve of the helmet in their design.

Secondly, they need to be extremely rugged for the wear and tear of the field.

They need to be waterproof and extremely adhesive for everything you will throw at them.

In addition, they need to keep bold colors and crisp graphics.

How Long Do Stickers Take?

This all depends upon the type of sticker and the complexity of the design. For example, car graphics will take longer than 3M vinyl sticker printing.

We also like to inspect every decal for defects before shipping it out.

When you order, we will be able to give you an estimated time depending on the different factors at play.

If you want a next-day turnaround, we can provide this, though designs must be provided by 3:00 pm the day before.
