Artwork Guidelines

We can print both vector and bitmap images!

At Sticker Simple, we accept both vector and bitmap-based artwork for printing on your custom stickers. What does that mean? Let's compare vector to bitmap images.

In general, vector images work best for more simple artwork with solid colors, bold shapes. Vector artwork can be scaled up to any size needed, making it ideal for printing custom stickers! A vector graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator is used to create vector images.

Bitmap images are best for high-color complex artwork such as photography and rich art with lots of color. The downside for bitmaps is that they can't be scaled up to a larger size without losing quality (meaning blurry prints, not good!), so make sure your artwork is at least 150 dpi (dots per inch) for the final size you want printed. That means if you want a 10" x 5" sticker, 150 dpi equals an image resolution of 1500 x 750 pixels (150 * 10 by 150 * 5).

Accepted Vector formats:

  • AI
  • EPS
  • SVG
  • PDF

Accepted Bitmap formats

Edge-to-edge "Full Bleed" printing

Normal printing includes a white gap of at least .125" between the ink and edge of sticker. If you would like edge-to-edge printing with no gap, select "Full Bleed" option. Full bleed will add .125 of color beyond the border of the sticker cut. Please ensure your artwork is sized and designed accordingly to accommodate this.
