Important details when creating designs for stickers

For pixel graphics on stickers, you need to remove unwanted and annoying backgrounds (i.e., don’t just make them “invisible” by making the background white). Our high-tech printers recognize every element in your design file, and they’ll cut this shape into a 10 x 10 cm / 4" x 4" square. To make sure nothing goes wrong when printing designs, stickers won’t be available in the design tool.

Do you have questions about stickers or file creation? Ask here in the comments or discuss with other Shop owners in the forum!

Can you expand on that? How fade proof are they when exposed to lots of sunlight outside? Can you use them outside, in particular on cars?

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

You can use them on cars but they won’t last forever. It’s hard to test these things but we’re trying :slight_smile: So no super clear answer right now I’m afraid.

fair enough. Thanks for getting back to me. Will take a look when I get mine early next week (shipped today)

I’ve created the sticker product and added to my shop to sell. I ordered some to test.
Today I recieved the stickers and I was dissapointed with the quality.

My design is uploaded as svg. But when I look at the stickers, I see artifacts (not sharp) in the lines. This is something I cannot sell to my customers.

My product is : https://shop.spreadshirt.nl/rollerskate/stickers+jam+skater+-+black?idea=5f2574a222250911103e141b&q=D23

Anybody have the same result?

Tried to take a detailed shot of the sticker:

is there any specific date you have for NA stickers?

@Lena_Spreadshop any news about the sticker not sharp even if the design is vector (svg)?

Beginning of October. No exact date yet :slight_smile:

Will get back to you about that later today. Just gathering some feedback :slight_smile:

What exactly does this mean?

For pixel graphics on stickers, you need to remove unwanted and annoying backgrounds (i.e., don’t just make them “invisible” by making the background white or transparent).

Hi @1600.io welcome to our forum. I’ve adapted the sentence basicallly it doesn’t suffice to make the background white but you really need to remove the background (best to read up on this here: https://help.spreadshop.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010420580-Optimizing-Pixel-Graphics-for-Print under Removal of unwanted backgrounds)

I don’t understand. The statement I quote specifically says

don’t just make them “invisible” by making the background white or transparent

but the link you provided explicitly says to remove the background by making it transparent:

Backgrounds must be transparent

So which is it?

As explained, there was a mistake in the blogpost. I also corrected the statement above :slight_smile:
This is correct:

(best to read up on this here: https://help.spreadshop.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010420580-Optimizing-Pixel-Graphics-for-Print under Removal of unwanted backgrounds)
The background must be transparent :slight_smile:

Ah, OK. Thank you!
