How many ink colors are in my sticker design?

Last Updated: Mar 27, 2015 01:36PM EDT
Up to 3 colors can be screenprinted on vinyl stickers.  When screen printing artwork on stickers, please keep in mind that each color in your design will require its own screen.  The more screens your design requires, the higher the price will be.  In other words, to keep your cost down, you'll want to print as few colors as possible. 

To determine how many colors are in your design, simply count each shade/color that you see in your design.  We print on white vinyl, so you do not need to count white as an ink color, so, if your artwork is black and white, you will only need to print 1 ink color. 

Some shading/gradients can be printed with 1 ink color using a process called halftones, which converts this portion of your design to small dots or lines to give an effect of shading.  If the shading requires a fine halftone screen, an additional $50 charge will be applied each time you re-order the same sticker design. 

There is a color chart for cut vinyl stickers and roll stickers that shows all standard sticker color options.  If you need an exact color match, the PMS match charge is $50 per color, and gets applied each time you do a sticker re-order. 

If your design requires more than 3 colors, you will have to use a full color digital process.  A custom quote can be provided for this option once your artwork and order details have been reviewed.
