Lots of different print shops offer sticker printing and they all have different opinions as to why their stickers are the best. Mindzai has been printing stickers for nearly a decade and over the past several years we have come to specialize in full color die cut stickers. So what makes our stickers better than everyone else and what should you expect when you order stickers from Mindzai Creative?
1. Our full color stickers are printed on white and clear vinyl. 2. The vinyl is 3.4mil with a 80lb crack n peel liner. This is the same weight vinyl that 99% of the other print shops use but our liner has slits to make them super simple to peel off. No more struggling to catch the edge of the sticker with your fingernail! 3. Once printed we coat the stickers with a uv coating - extending the life of the sticker for 3-5 years. This also makes the stickers scratch resistant when applied to cell phones and laptops. 4. These stickers are 100% weather proof with a permanent adhesive. 5. Once coated we use a vinyl plotter to custom cut your sticker to the shape of the design. 6. It only takes us 5-7 business days to turn your order.
What makes our stickers better than sign shop stickers? 1. We have a crack n peel liner making it simple to peel the stickers. 2. We use uv gloss which will not peel off - Sign shops use lamination which will peel off sooner than later. 3. Depending on the vinyl a sign shop uses - our 3.4mil vinyl is thicker than car wrap vinyl. 4. Sign shop stickers can have this weird matte finish - our stickers have a glossy finish. 5. Our pricing and turn time is competitive if not better.
What makes our stickers better than screen printed stickers? 1. Have you ever had to wait a month or more for a sticker order? Not thru us you didn't! 2. Not all screen printed stickers have crack n peel liners (see above). 3. Even though some screen printed stickers have a thicker liner than ours - the thickness of the vinyl is the same. 4. Screen printed stickers are more expensive and take way too long to produce. Our stickers are cost effective and delivered nation wide in 2 weeks.
How to place an order? 1. Create your design. Use photoshop, illustrator, another print quality design program, or scan your original art. 2. Create your die line. If you know how to do so in illustrator - if not we will set up a die line for you. 3. Save your file as a 2 layer pdf (print layer / die line layer) or if you didnt set up a die line a flattened pdf, tiff, or jpeg will work. 4. Select your product - Standard, square, bumper sticker, circle, oval, or die cut sticker. 5. Select your size - if the site doesn't show the exact size pick the next biggest size or email in your order if its super custom. 6. Select your quantity and stock (self explanatory) 7. Select "Borders" or "Trim to Art". Borders will leave a min 1/8th inch of white space outside your design. Trim to Art will cut 1/16th inch into your art so please set your file up with a 1/8th inch bleed. 8. Select whether you want a back print. FYI - we cannot perfectly align a back print so floating text and or logos work best and full bleed graphics don't work at all for a liner print. 9. The rest of the options are self explanatory...upload your files, check out, pay, etc...and then get excited because your stickers are practically on their way!
