How To Use Inkjet Sticker Paper

Sticker PaperInkjet Sticker Film, also referred to by some people as Inkjet Vinyl Self Adhesive is truly fantastic for many craft making and commercial uses due to its versatility and ease of use. To achieve quality work, you do not need a professional printing house, you only need imagination and a working domestic Inkjet printer. This makes the paper extremely popular amongst amateur craft makers and professional printers alike.

How to use sticker paper?

. You can create a design using a special dedicated software or a normal word processor.

Suggested Applications – Clear Finish Sticker Paper:

  • Shop window stickers – The clear sticker paper could be glued inside a window making it very popular for shop windows. Remember to print it in a mirror image if you need it to be seen from the outside.
  • Images that need to be placed on an existing background such as book covers, machine panels, signs.

Suggested Applications – Matt Finish Sticker Paper:

  • Car bumper stickers – The matt sticker paper is useful for creating outstanding car stickers as couple of images could be printed on one A4 sheet. Once printed simply cut the paper to size using scissors.
  • Enhancing model planes, trains and automobiles – Suitable for gluing on plastic, the matt finish paper is ideal for giving models that near real look.
  • Mock up designs for bottles and packaging – Try out different versions on the actual product.  The Sticker is thin enough to be adhered on profiled surfaces and can be used to demonstrate design mock ups on bottles, toys, packaging etc.

Please note that the sticker is not suitable for permanent application if it is not protected either by a laminate or a clear laquer.  In its original state, the inkjet sticker is suitable for short to mid term application in an area that does not receive mechanical movement across it surface.

Suggested Applications – Glossy Finish Sticker Paper:

  • Laptop or mobile phones cover skin – The glossy sticker paper could be cut to size to fit a laptop/mobile phone external cover giving you the ability to put some life and personalize what is otherwise a boring laptop or mobile phone exterior.
  • Decorate book cover and albums – Fantastic to enhance a personal gift, the glossy sticker paper is suitable for gluing on a family album.
  • Kitchen and bathroom tile decoration – Ideal for fabulous tile decoration. We recommend covering the sticker using water based lacquer to make sure that dirt does not stick to it.
  • Wall decoration – Printing small images which are cut precisely around the image to take any white none printed edges off and sticking it on the wall for funky look or children deco.

    What inkjet printer is the best to use in Sticker Paper and Vinyl Sticker?thank you..

    • Joseph Eitan says:

      Hi, our sticker paper works with any inkjet printer. I would look beyond the use for sticker and consider one that will suffice when you use other types of paper as well. Take a look at our article on choosing an inkjet printer. Thank you for your comment.

    I bought a pack of transparent self adhesive to print some stickers with text and photos to go onto glass jars. The printing seemed fine until I removed the back then I realised the pictures are transparent. Unless I stick them onto a coloured surface I can’t see the pictures. Do I have the wrong sticker paper for the job??

    • Joseph Eitan says:

      Hi, If you wanted a solid white sticker but bought the transparent one, then indeed this is the wrong item. The clear self adhesive is as the name suggests, a clear background and the colour of whatever you stick on will show through. You need the matt or the gloss self adhesive if you want a white background, just decide if you want a gloss or matt finish.

  6. Simon says:

    Can I dye sublimate with the matt paper? E.g. print design onto dye sublimation paper and then heat press onto the Inkjet sticker paper? (Obviously mirrored if text)

    • Joseph Eitan says:

      Dye Sublimation ink will only transfer onto a polyester coated surface. Our vinyl self adhesive does not have such coating so the suggested technique will not work.
