There are a variety of different printing methods we use for our custom stickers, and we tailor the method depending on what will best suit the design. Die-cutting is a printing process used in a variety of different industries in order to cut whatever thin, flat material is being used into a specific shape using a steel cutting die. This can be for the purpose of cutting decorative shapes inside of the pattern or just for the outline of the design itself.
