What Factors affect the price of custom stickers and decals?

Once we know your requirements we can make design suggestions to give you the best value. Below are some of the factors that affect the overall pricing.



There are many different and varied materials stickers can be printed out of. The stock that you should use depends on the application use, indoor or outdoor, or number of years required. For more information see types of stickers or contact us. In many cases the stock type also comes in different qualities of adhesive. Materials can affect price considerably, so comparing options and alternatives is a good idea.



Stock sizes are less expensive than a custom sizes or shapes. Larger sizes use more material and therefore usually cost more. For custom shapes a die cut is required, which will again add to the costs. Sometimes a small adjustment of size can reduce costs. if this is the case we will let you know.



With screen printed and computer cut stickers, each additional colour added to your sticker increases the overall price. With digital and offset printing techniques, printing one or 100 colours doesn't affect the price. If you need to reduce costs, simplifying the colour scheme can be one of the most effective ways.



Producing small runs of stickers, say 1 to 20 units, digital and computer cut printing techniques are the best bet.  For larger runs of stickers, screen printing and offset printing is more cost effective. Price breaks for large runs are at 500, 1000, 1500, 2500, 5000, 10,000 and on up in 5000 increments. The higher the quantity the lower the cost per sticker. Larger stickers will have lower minimums.


Production Time

Production on most stickers averages 10 - 15 working days (depending on product, die-cutting, quantity ordered, etc.). Also allow 1 - 3 days shipping time. If you have a tight deadline we have an EXPRESS SERVICE facility.
