To find out which Wall Monkeys custom sticker type is right for you, we’ve put together this go-to guide on kiss cut versus die cut stickers:
Die Cut and Kiss Cut Sticker FAQs
What is the difference between die cut and kiss cut stickers?
The main difference between die cut stickers and kiss cut stickers is the backing. Kiss cut stickers are easy to peel with a larger surrounding border and backing, while die cut stickers are custom cut to the exact shape of your design.
*The differences between die cut and kiss cut stickers are before they're peeled and applied! Both of these sticker types may look the same and have the same shape or final appearance after being removed from their backing.
Can kiss cut/die cut stickers go on cars?
At Wall Monkeys, our kiss cut and die cut stickers are made of the same durable vinyl adhesive that can easily peel and stick to all kinds of smooth surfaces, including water bottles, laptops and cars.
How are kiss cut stickers made?
Kiss cut stickers are printed on high-quality vinyl, then precisely cut around your design. Kiss cutting refers to the process of cutting through the vinyl layer around your sticker, without cutting through the paper sticker backing.
How are die cut stickers made?
Die cut stickers are also printed on high-quality vinyl, but unlike kiss cutting, the die cutting process cuts through the vinyl and paper backing materials. Die cut stickers and their backing are both cut precisely to fit the shape of your design.
What is the difference between a sticker and a decal?
Vinyl stickers and decals are made of the same easy-to-apply vinyl with residue-free removal. The difference between a sticker and a decal at Wall Monkeys is the size of the product and the surface it'll be applied to. Stickers are generally smaller in size while decals are larger.
Die Cut Stickers
Die cut stickers are custom cut to the exact shape of the design, with both the vinyl sticker and the paper backing cut into the same shape. This type of sticker is great for putting your unique logo or artwork on display, with a clean cut final presentation.
Benefits of Die Cut Stickers
- Die cut sticker backing is custom cut to match the shape of the sticker, offering a personalized final sticker presentation
- This popular sticker type is great for a visually-appealing display
- Die cut stickers are great for custom artwork and logos, with a custom cut that helps your design stand out
