¿Cómo trabajar la impresión de stickers?

In this post we will detail how to work with adhesive vinyl, and what alternatives you have to obtain better finishes and results. We recommend that you consider the material, and find the best way to work according to your teams.

1. We identify the role and how it works .

Oracal Printable Vinyl

This material, specifies that it is to work with "INKJET", this refers to a printer of the ink jet model . We recommend using it with the print and cut system of your cutting plotter.

2. Print the design with the crop marks according to your plotter.

3. Send to your plotter to make the cut.

Clever. This was the process.

Ok, now let's talk about the results that can be obtained and how to transform them to make them stand out more. Now comes the results and how to get the most out of them.

How can I increase durability?

If you have an inkjet printer, we recommend that you:

  • Look for papers with finishes that "adhere" the sublimation ink.
  • Use fixatives and protectors to prevent the ink from running. You can use the fixatives with gloss and matte finishes that are used in the drawings.
  • Water resistant inkjet ink.

How could you create other finishes?

This depends on the technique you are looking for, but some ideas are:

  • Glossy or matte finish: With the fixative mentioned above.
  • Doming: With a resin you place on top of the material to give it relief.
  • 3D finish: this is another type of resin that you put on the material and it creates a 3D effect, similar to doming, but it is not as resistant.

And finally, we have also seen fabric labels , and you are probably wondering, how are they made? The process is similar to the one used for this paper, only you must do it on printable textile vinyl , either eco-solvent or inkjet printer, and then cut and prepare it for ironing,
