competition with the use of kiss-cut labels. These custom labels are produced with a

backing. Our kiss-cut labels are individually cut, which makes the label

are perfect for bottles, jars, and clear containers to show off your branding
as well as the product inside.

Choose the Best Size For Your Kiss Cut Labels
Here’s how to decide on the
right dimensions for your kiss cut labels.
Choose from four (4) standard sizes (width x height) – 2"
x 2”, 3” x 3”, 4” x 4”, and 5” x 5”. Choose one that fits your needs best.
For custom sizes, we can print up to a maximum of 8.5” x 11”.
We recommend two (2) easy ways to measure your label size is by using a
measuring tape or a sheet of paper and a ruler.
Option 1: Take your measuring tape and wrap it around your packaging or
product to determine the size you need. This is the best method for curved
surfaces like bottles and jars.
Option 2: Use a sheet of paper, cut in the shape that you want, and
lay it over the area you want to label. If you are satisfied with the way it
looks on your product, take the ruler to measure the paper’s dimensions. This
method works best for custom shapes as well.
For accuracy, we still recommend measuring the container or product to ensure
the right label size and shape before placing an order.
Tips for Kiss Cut Labels
the right shape for your design. Some
shapes work better for logos, such as circles and ovals. If you need more space
for text, then squares and rectangles are more suitable. The type of container
or packaging also plays an important role. Tapered bottles may require
custom-shaped labels like arch and hexagon to avoid creases and air bubbles
Choose the material that suits your product packaging’s storage
requirements. Where will your kiss cut labels be displayed? White
paper sticker is strictly for indoor use. For outdoor applications wherein the
label will be exposed to moisture or the elements, choose our durable and
weatherproof white vinyl.
Finish with the right coating. If you opted for white paper sticker
material for your labels, you have to pick between matte, gloss, and high-gloss
coating. A matte finish gives your labels a subdued, premium look and is
perfect if you want a writable surface using a ballpoint pen. A gloss coat
gives labels a glass-like shine that complements bold colors. It also makes the
label writable with the use of a permanent ink marker. The high-gloss laminate
adds an extra layer of protection from UV rays and scratches. It makes your
label extra shiny, but not writable.

choosing the right label for your business.
is the difference between kiss-cut labels and cut-to-size labels?
Cut-to-size labels, also known as die-cut labels or singles, do not have an
extra border around the design. Die-cut labels are printed and trimmed while
cutting through the paper backing, unlike kiss-cut labels which still have the
border and backing intact.
