So, let’s get started.

What is a holographic sticker?

A holographic sticker is printed on rainbow, iridescent effect metallic vinyl. We use the effect to create metallic colors. Holographic stickers can be cut to any shape and are generally very durable, waterproof, and survive scratching & chemicals. Here’s an example of a holographic sticker:

In this example, we have printed the design in full-color, and we’ve used white ink to create beautiful effects. 

How are holographic stickers made?

We make holographic stickers from a durable, metallic vinyl that has a medium-strength adhesive. We print onto this rainbow effect vinyl using the latest UV-cured, digital inkjet technology. We then use a protective gloss laminate for maximum durability.

This image shows the layers of a holographic sticker:

The layers are:

  1. A clear gloss over-laminate protects the design from sunlight, scratching, water & oils.
  2. We print using the latest technology with fine detail & vibrant colors. We can print white ink behind some colors to remove the iridescent effect.
  3. The holographic vinyl gives your design a shimmering, dazzling effect.
  4. The permanent, medium-strength adhesive is perfect for 1000s applications.
  5. A thick backing paper makes them easy to peel & gives a premium finish.

How do I design my holographic sticker?

Step 1 is to create a design suitable to have printed on the beautiful rainbow effect material. Here is a useful template you can use to get started. It explains some of the requirements for designing a sticker.

When you order holographic stickers with most suppliers, they will send you a design proof showing what it looks like before printing. This is super helpful and gives you the confidence your design will look right once printed.
