A print specialist checks your order to see if everything is clear and processes the invoice. Placing your order online is the fastest way. You can also email your order to email@example.com.
2. We email you the proof (mock-up)
If you have requested a designer to create the file for you, they will contact you to discuss your ideas, and create the design for you to proof. If you sent your own files to us for printing we will prepare the files and email you a proof.
3. Confirming order
Your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded, attached and approved. We will send an invoice for your order. Once it's paid, your project will be finalized with a proof for your review before printing. Our proof form includes all project details and a final review of the artwork to ensure your file has been received correctly.Nothing goes to print without your final approval.
4. We print your job
Your job is sent into production where it gets printed, finished and packed, under the watchful eye of our production manager.
5. It's ready for dispatch
Convenient and free delivery New Zealand-wide. Even if you are in the smallest towns, we've got you covered. StickerDot’s general turnaround time ranges from 9-10 business days after the final proof is approved. (Turnaround time does not begin upon placement of your order.)
It is our mission to make prints durable. Although your prints are created with highly archival photographic media, we suggest that all StickerDot prints should be kept indoors and away from direct sunlight to ensure a longer print permanence, unless the print is design for outdoor usage.
Different products need different paper. Your paper stock choices will vary depending on what product you order. StickerDot offers multiple options designed to help fit your aesthetic and budget needs.
For your convenience, we do provide an estimated delivery time for every order that is based on the time it takes to process and ship your product to its designated address. For international shipments, please note that sometimes order processing may take longer than expected depending on the local customs clearing time.
Production will start after completion of the order which requires final proof approval and complete payment.
Once you place your order, it immediately goes into our production queue for printing. Be sure to double check your imprint and image before submitting your order. Once the order is submitted, we cannot review nor stop your order.
To ensure fast turnaround and quality print, we recommend providing a high resolution PDF file from your Word or PowerPoint artwork. Alternatively, we can provide file conversion for a fee.
Word is a word processing application and as such is not ideal for high end printing. Although we are able to print text documents from Word we strongly recommend that you do not place any images or complicated logos into your documents unless these are in CMYK colour mode at 300dpi or higher. Please also note that we can only produce grayscale or CMYK jobs using Word, as it does not support Spot Colours. Please click here for artwork references.
Our full time in-house graphic design team can provide the level of service that suits you, from stock images and typesetting to a complete rebrand. Send us your requirements and we’ll get back to you with a quote.
For existing artwork that is not print ready with basic file conversion we only charge $54.
When you place your order through our website, there is a feature that will allow you to submit either completed artwork or individual graphics, such as logos. If you already have artwork you want us to print, please be sure it meets our specifications before uploading. Please check the size is correct, also check the image dimensions and file resolution. Also be aware we can only accept certain file formats. If you experience difficulty uploading your graphics you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Most people are surprised at how well their job matches what they see. But because of wide differences in monitor calibration and the different technologies used, some printed colours may not exactly match the colours on your specific monitor. Unfortunately it's all too easy to send a file over that looks great on screen, only for unexpected results when you receive your printed products. This is because screens do not show underlying problems in many files created by many applications today. Please see our RGB - CMYK Information page for important instructions on getting the results you want.
Please see our artwork guide here
We ask that you use CMYK colour mode for your artwork. If you use any special colours within your artwork, ensure these are Pantone colours only or dedicated Gold / Silver / White colours. Artwork supplied to us in any other format must be converted to this as a matter of course.
Adobe Illustrator files are preferred however in some cases we can accept high-resolution .PSD, .JPEG or .TIFF files provided they have a resolution of 600 dots per inch (dpi) or higher. A black logo on a white background is preferred.
Please send only original or vector format files in CMYK colour mode unless otherwise specified.
Our graphic designers can answer any artwork questions you may have and will be happy to take you through any problems step by step.
CMYK printing (a.k.a Process Printing) is an industry standard method of printing in full colour. CMYK stands for the four colours used: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and ‘Key’ (black ink). These colours are combined by printing them on top of one another, creating the illusion of full colour.
CMYK printing can economically reproduce most colour photographs very well; it is the standard method we use to process print jobs for our customers.
PMS (Pantone Matching System) is a proprietary colour matching system used to specify standard colours for ink selection and guarantee colour accuracy. PMS colours are usually applied as extra colours on top of the normal CMYK colours.
When designing your own files for print, it is important to understand file requirements and standards to avoid production issues. Supplying your files as indicated will help us to meet your graphic expectations. If you are supplying artwork files, we accept most standard files in both Macintosh and PC formats. These guidelines will ensure that your prints will be the best quality possible.
We accept artworks in any of the files: pdf, eps, ai, psd, jpeg, png, word document, high resolution files (at least 300dpi) and original file. The following guidelines for providing graphics files are optimal and are specified to ensure the highest quality output.
Vector Files (which are often .ai or .eps file types) allow our artists to work faster and more efficiently to get you your design for printing. Vector graphics are a scalable, resolution-independent format composed of individual objects or shapes. Vector images can be resized easily without loss of quality making them an ideal format for initial logo designs and illustrations to be used in multiple sizes.
Ensure that all files are properly named and updated in all layouts and file names have the correct file extension name (i.e.: .eps / .tif / .ai / ...etc.).
Turn all fonts into outlines or convert to paths before sending the files. If you are using a program where this is not an option, YOU MUST INCLUDE ALL FONTS with your files. By outlining your fonts you ensure our artists get your design exactly as it should be. Otherwise the computer substitutes the font and you never know what will show up!
Make sure your document is set to CMYK Colour Mode.
Digital printers use combinations of four toner colours (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Keyline Black) to achieve print on paper. Attempting to print files that are in RGB can cause colour matching issues. Colours created without screens or dots, such as those found in the Pantone Matching System, are referred to in the industry as spot or solid colours.
Any pictures or files that are submitted in RGB colour mode must be converted to CMYK prior to printing. RGB (Red, Green, Blue) is intended for screen-viewing only. Computer monitors use combinations of these three colours to achieve an image on screen. There are RGB colour combinations (particularly very bright colours) that cannot be reproduced using CMYK process. One should be aware that files converted from RGB to CMYK may alter the colour composition significantly!
Because digital printers use a four-colour process, they are not able to match Pantone colours. Please let us know if colour matching is an issue and we will make every effort to match Pantone colours as close as possible.
If your artwork is using PANTONE Colours, please supply a Pantone colour reference. Some colours are more likely to be achieved, but due to printer limitations, Pantone colours are matched to the best possible interpretation for the specific output device. NOTE: StickerDot will do their best to match colours but due to varying printing methods, SOME COLOURS ARE NOT OBTAINABLE.
Supply all logos and illustrated graphics as VECTOR format whenever possible.
Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of a sheet after trimming. Files that have text, images, or colours that run off the trim edge of your final printed piece must be submitted with an extra 1/8" (.125) border all around. This extra extension of your graphics is called a bleed. A bleed is necessary because it is impossible for a cutting blade to hit the exact same location on every page when cutting printed sheets in a stack. No Bleed: If you do not want a bleed on your document, it should be submitted with at least a 1/8" (.125) white border all around.
We cannot accept artwork created in a Microsoft program as these are not a design package and if supplied as artwork these formats will require (where possible) converting to a usable format and may incur artwork charges. These brief definitions will help you better understand how each file format is best used.
PDF (short for Portable Document Format) is a file format developed by Adobe as a means of distributing compact, platform-independent documents. PDF captures formatting information from a variety of desktop publishing applications, making it possible to send formatted documents and have them appear on the recipient's monitor or printer as they were intended. These are print files only and cannot be altered to fit different sizes, artwork must be set up at the correct proportion and at print ready quality. Make sure images are saved at high resolution (300dpi).
PSD and PDD are Photoshop's native format. Use PSD when you need to preserve layers, transparency, adjustment layers, masks, clipping paths, layer styles, blending modes, vector text and shapes, etc. The PDD extension was used in Adobe PhotoDeluxe (now discontinued), but it is identical to PSD format and the two can be used interchangeably.
JPG (short for Joint Photographic Experts Group, and pronounced jay-peg) The JPEG image format is one of the most widely used digital image formats. It is a file format best used for photo images which must be very small files, for example, for web sites or for email. JPG uses lossy compression (lossy meaning "with losses to quality"). Lossy means that some image quality is lost when the JPG data is compressed and saved, and this quality can never be recovered.
PNG (short for Portable Network Graphics) PNG use lossless compression of data in a wonderful way – the format compress the images so that you will not be able to detect degradation of quality. PNG files are saved with .png extension. The PNG file format supports eight-bit paletted images (with optional transparency for all palette colours) and 24-bit truecolour (16 million colours) or 48-bit truecolour with and without alpha channel - while GIF supports only 256 colours and a single transparent colour , using a lossless compression approach. A PNG file can be saved with a transparent background which allows you to place your image on top of another image without an outlining white box.
GIF files are probably the most popular on the web being used in logos and colour images. Even though PNG files are widely supported, GIF is still the most popular.
Vector Illustrator and EPS files are the preferred files types. It's easy to differentiate between vectors and other formats. If you zoom into a vector, you will see no jagged edges or distortion. If you zoom into a bitmap, the image and edges become blocky. Don't create a bitmap file and then save it as an AI or EPS file: it's still a bitmap and would be unusable unless we re-draw it for a fee.
Please note our service is automated and we cannot be held responsible if artwork supplied in an extremely low quality results in unsuitable output. We try to make every effort to spot these issues but clients are reminded that the detailed instruction above must be followed to ensure high quality output results. If unexpected results have been received and this is deemed to be an artwork issue we cannot be held responsible for this.
Proofs must be carefully reviewed. An approved proof is final acceptance to produce the order. Production lead time starts upon receipt of your proof approval and full payment.
If you have any questions about artwork setup, we will be happy to help you.
Whenever possible, we suggest all text be converted to outlines. If this is not possible; you must include all fonts with your file submission. Generally 6-8pt font size is the smallest text size able to be successfully imprinted. Embroidery lettering is best suited as non-serif with a height of at least 3/16’’ to ¼’’ inches.
You may send us your artwork in any of the following formats: pdf, eps, ai, psd, jpeg, png, word document, high resolution files (at least 300dpi) and original file.
All images should be 300 dpi. DPI is simply the amount of ink dots per inch; 300 dots per inch is the required standard for printed material. This is the standard unit of measurement for print resolution for printing devices including laser printers, inkjets, photo typesetting machines Anything below 200 dpi may not be good enough resolution for printing. Images should also be placed at 100% size in your final document. For example, if your image is 50mm x 50mm at 300dpi, then it is also that size when placed in your document. Lower resolution compromises image quality and may result in pixilation (where the pixels, tiny squares or dots that make up the image, are apparent when printed). Please note that opening a 72 dpi image in Photoshop and simply changing the dpi to 300 will not increase the quality of the image.
In producing your requested order we have the ability, in many instances, to accurately match your specific colour requirements. In these cases we ask that you please provide a Pantone Matching System number (or PMS colour) with your order. PLEASE NOTE: If referring to PMS colours via the Internet be aware that most monitors will have different calibrations and settings that may present a different colour or shade on a computer screen compared to when printed and seen in person. Also, certain papers and substrates absorb inks differently - this may cause the specific colour to appear a shade or two off from product to product.
Because of the additional process and expense of the inks there is typically an additional charge for PMS colour printing. This is purely product driver and will be communicated at the time of the order.
Ink that prints beyond the trim edge of the page to ensure it extends to the edge of the page after trimming. As there is a degree of movement when printing on any press, you should always create 4mm bleed on all edges where bleed is needed. This gives enough tolerance for any movement in the press, paper or cutter. The smaller the border, the more apparent this small imperfection will be. To avoid potential disappointment, we'd recommend using a wide border (which extends well inside the safe area) or removing it altogether and making them full bleed. Supplying your job without bleed may result in white lines when we trim it.
The concept of applying bleed is the same for all desktop publishing programs. You need to extend the object box, whether picture or colour, out past the edge of your page. Then, when creating the PDF, you need to set your bleed margins to 4mm.
With Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Adobe Photoshop you do not have the ability to add bleed when creating a PDF. You need to make your page/image size 6mm bigger at the start. You will then treat the extra 8mm (4mm all round) as bleed, which will be removed when we trim your job.
CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black - the inks a printer mixes together to make colours on printed material.
RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue - the colours of light a computer screen mixes together to make colours on screen.
So what’s the difference?
RGB is used for viewing colours on a computer screen, like this website.
CMYK is used for viewing printed material. All our presses, big and small, use cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks to transform your digital file to printed media. Please ensure your artwork is set up as CMYK. If you use RGB images or colours we will convert these to CMYK for you but the colour of your printed file may appear washed out when printed.
Raster images are more commonly called bitmap images and they are composed of pixels. A bitmap image uses a grid of individual pixels where each pixel can be a different colour or shade. The following file types are ALWAYS raster-based: .JPEG, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, .TIF and .BMP. You cannot change a raster file to vector simply by changing the file extension name.
Vector graphics use mathematical relationships between points and the paths connecting them to describe an image. A typical vector file extension is: .AI, .EPS, .PDF and sometimes .PS. These file types can be raster, vector or a combination of both, depending on the contents embedded.
Bitmap images require higher resolutions and anti-aliasing for a smooth appearance. Vector-based graphics on the other hand are mathematically described and appear smooth at any size or resolution. Bitmaps are best used for photographs and images with subtle shading. Graphics best suited for the vector format are page layout, type, line art or illustrations.
To ensure the best quality print job we require all provided graphic files and images should be equivalent to 300dpi. Images should not be 'resized' or overly compressed.
For example, if you are providing digital photos and wish to achieve a high-quality '300dpi' photo, your digital camera will need to be set to at least 2 megapixels for a small image or 3MP or more for a larger one.
Also, images taken from the web are usually 60 to 72ppi, which is usually too low for printing.
For more advice on specifications, resolution and other technical issues please contact us.
Viewing colour on your monitor - computer monitors use RGB to display colour. RBG stands for Red, Green and Blue. When you print something using the CMYK process, for best results you need to convert any RBG images to CMYK images first. Sometimes you’ll see some changes to the image when you make this conversion, so it’s better that you see the changes first before uploading your file. Also, some colours that you see on your screen are very difficult to reproduce exactly using CMYK (or any other printing method). Therefore, if you have the software that enables you to process your image into CMYK before you upload the image to StickerDot, you’ll have a close idea of what you’ll get once the printed products are shipped to you. Some of the hardest colours to match going from RGB to CMYK are blues.
The differences between monitors - you also have to take into consideration that different monitor types display colours differently. For instance, many LCD or laptop monitors cannot display as much of a range of colours as other monitors. On these monitors, colours can lose contrast and many colours sometimes look similar to others (for instance, dark greens and browns). Professional designers and prepress companies use colour-calibrated monitors to ensure that the colour they see on their screens is as close as possible to the actual colour of the file. Most home users cannot afford to purchase these very high-end monitors, and therefore have to understand that there will ALWAYS be variance from what they see on the screen to what they see on their printer, or any other output device.
**Disclaimer - Actual colours may vary slightly because individual computer monitors/mobile devices have different capabilities from one another to display colour. If you have any questions about colour, please email us before you order and we will be happy to help you out.
The lines you see around the preflight image represent the safe zone bleed line (blue- all text and images within these lines will safely be printed, cut line (pink- shows where the stickers will be cut) and outside bleed line (yellow-to allow the design to extend to the edge of the document). The pink lines show where the cutting will take place and any of the text or images outside this pink line will not be on the final printed product.
Resolution also known as DPI (Dots Per Inch) can be described as the number of dots that fit horizontally and vertically into a one-inch space. Generally, the more dots per inch, the more detail captured and the sharper the resulting image.
For an image to print properly, the image must be at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) at the final output size. If your file is not 300 dpi, you cannot simply increase the dpi from a low resolution to a higher one by increasing the DPI in your imaging program.
Because of differences in monitor calibration, some printed colours may not exactly match the colours on your specific monitor. StickerDot makes efforts to convert RGB to CYMK, but the conversion process may not be an exact match.
A proof is a trial impression of the printed artwork allowing the customer to confirm the correct image is being printed; a proof will show your design and the trim marks in the correct location but may not reveal issues relating to transparencies or overprints.
A soft PDF proof will be supplied for approval with your order, we do not supply printed proofs.
Final proof approval is important as it will serve as a go signal for us to proceed in printing your stickers with approved final artwork which will be provided to printers, without approval no printing shall be commence or else possible complains will occur upon receiving the goods.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure artwork has been correctly prepared for commercial printing by a person experienced in graphic design, pre-press and check that all aspects of the artwork are correct, including spelling and grammar.
To avoid printing issues, we recommend customers consult an experienced pre-press graphic designer if they do not understand bleed or how to prepare artwork correctly for commercial printing.
Prior to proof approval, orders cannot be changed nor cancelled once it is forwarded to production .
The Customer is 100% responsible for the accuracy of the proofs. The Company will not accept any liability for errors or mistakes that have been approved by the Customer.
Unfortunately we do not offer hard copy proofs
It is important to check all elements of the proof as StickerDot cannot be held responsible for errors that are present in an approved proof, for example spelling mistakes. Before StickerDot can print any job it must first be approved or “proofed” by the customer. This stage is very important to ensure that the product is printed as you expect. We’ve suggested the key areas to look in the below list.
Spelling (and grammar)
Details (Complete Names, Phone numbers, email addresses, home/business addresses, dates and times)
Pictures/Artwork and Logos (Are they sharp enough?)
Very often a designer will retype information supplied when creating a proof. For this reason all elements on the Pictures/Artwork and Logos must be checked for spelling and grammar (your and you’re), this also includes phone numbers, email addresses and dates!
Is all the information that you require on the product. For example; email, direct line and fax number.
Is the size that you expect on the stickers to be printed correct? A common mistake is to view a stickers on the screen at 200% zoom; hence text is displayed much larger than the final product. Properly reviewing the digital proof is the best way to check if the texts on the stickers are legible and can be read easily.
If you have supplied us with your own picture or logo, it is worth checking if the final proof shows the artwork clearly. As a typical monitor/screen displays at 72dpi (dots per inch) and commercial print is produced at 300dpi you will have to zoom in to 400% to check logo’s and pictures. If at this level the logo appears distorted you might want to consider supplying a higher resolution one.
If you are happy with your proof please send us an email to confirm that you approve the proof. We are unable to book in a job to print until we have this confirmation from you.
We use a fully automated system and unfortunately it is not possible to change/cancel an order once approval of a proof has been made.
Artwork or job details can only be changed if:
a. You have not approved a proof yet or
b. you have approved the proof but you have not made payment.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept changes once the job has been forwarded to production.
If StickerDot has designed artwork on your behalf then you may choose to purchase the rights on your design for an additional fee. StickerDot will then agree to only reproduce that particular design exclusively for you. To find out about pricing, please contact us.
We will email you artwork proofs for your approval. Your job will not go to press until you give us the go ahead.
Creating a unique logo requires the services of our qualified graphic artists, which we offer for a fee. Please contact our Customer Service Representatives for more details and price rates.
We do provide artwork design services upon request. Please send us your requirements through our Quote Form and we will contact you to discuss the details.

StickerDot products feature personalized printing such as photos, text, logos and other graphic elements. We are working our hardest to provide the highest quality of printed products as possible. Despite our best efforts, certain factors are beyond our control, and unfortunately cannot be covered by our customer satisfaction guarantee. These personalised prints are regularly exposed to a variety of potentially destructive elements that can degrade printed images and affecting printed products durability.
1. Chemical Attacks - Chemical can penetrate the surface and extract the dyes used to print photos and other image. The same holds true for skin oils, certain cosmetics, petrol, and leather treatment chemicals.
2. Heat - Heat can cause significant damage by warping and distortion to most printed materials.
3. Abrasions - For cards (business cards), repeated swipes through a card reader can remove features from the plastic, especially if the card has no topcoat or overlay protecting the printed image. Cards with applied relief features like embossing, indenting and tactile printing are more sensitive to abrasion and wear.
4. Moisture - Humidity, perspiration, and other moisture can attack or weaken adhesions of poor quality topcoats and laminates and cause premature failures.
5. Ultraviolet Light - Prolonged exposure to sunlight and other UV sources can fade printed images on plastic cards and other printed products, causing colour washout, pixelated images and partial characters. UV exposure can also degrade some protective layers and laminated more than others. Careful selection of printing and finishing technologies can reduce the effects of UV exposure.
6. Usage Patterns - Customers usage patterns can have a significant impact on printed products life. It is the wear and tear (bending and flexing) on the printed products has the greatest effect on the life expectancy of printed products.
Under these conditions and over time, the printed product may experience normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear issues are not considered a defect and is not covered by StickerDot Return, Refund and Reprint Policy. If there be any issues with your printed job, please contact us at the email@example.com, and we will be happy to address it directly.
While we do everything we can to ensure your product is of the very high standard we expect, there are rare circumstances that error occur unexpectedly.
In this case, you may send us an email with whatever complications you might have and we’ll do the best we can to resolve the issue as well as to provide you great satisfaction after what happened.
