We do a wide variety of different stickers; bumper stickers, license disc stickers, domed stickers, gel stickers, Contra Vision (also known as one-way vision), sandblasted vinyl, car stickers and so on. Please feel free to inquire if we can assist you with your particular sticker needs.
We print these stickers on digital monomeric vinyl. Because this digital printing process, it influences the amount of colours that are printed onto the stickers, not the price. There is no standard size when it comes to bumper stickers but on average it is about 250 x 70mm. The cost of such a sticker is about R6 each, VAT exuded. The minimum amount to order these stickers is 50 stickers. Bumper stickers can be laminated with clear vinyl and to do so it will cost an extra amount of R2.50 per sticker.
License Disk Stickers
License disk stickers are printed using the same method as our other stickers. They are round, 90mm in diameter and placed on the inside of a vehicle, stuck against the window and the goal is to attach your vehicle license disc. An order for bumper stickers takes approximately 3 working days to complete if it’s digitally printed. It will take about 7-10 working days if we litho print it (larger quantities). We can also screen print license disk or bumper stickers but it does not justify if the quantities printed are less than 2000 stickers, depending on the amount of colours in the design.
Domed or gel stickers are mainly used for promotional items such as calculators, laptop cases etc. They are regular stickers digitally printed and then coated with a strong glue-like substance (resin) and placed into a kiln to set. It takes about 8 hours for this resin to set. The maximum size we can dome a sticker is about 1000 square millimetres, which is equivalent to 10 x 10 cm. Orders for domed labels/stickers take approximately 5 working days to complete, depending on the size of the order.
Contra Vision or One-Way Vision
Contravision or one-way vision is generally stuck to the rear window of vehicles and on shop windows. What makes this one-way vision vinyl quite popular is the fact that one can see from the inside to the outside, but not vice versa. In other words one can see from the inside out, but not from outside in. This vinyl is commonly used for rear windows of vehicles but has the disadvantage that it could obstructs the driver's vision slightly. The rear wiper cannot be used on this vinyl, due to the fact that one cannot laminate Contra Vision so the wiper will rub the printing off. If you do laminate it, it will then lose its effect and you won’t be able to look through it.
With low quantities (about 2000 and less) we print digitally and with large quantities we do lithograph printing. So it's not really worth ordering low quantities because the competition is usually very large for products that are bottled and one wants to spend the minimum on packaging and labels. We often get customers asking for the price on the bottle labels, but they do not give a size, only the volume that the bottle can take, e.g. 500 ml, 750ml or one litre. Please keep in mind that the size of the bottle for the label one requires is irrelevant. There is no standard size of sticker for each bottle size compared available. You need to tell us what it is that you would like. The most common bottle sticker we print is a wine label, the size of a 750 ml wine bottle is approximately 180 x 120 mm and the cost for each is R6.20 exuding VAT. Unfortunately, we cannot stick the bottle labels for you, except in the case where we do wine labels. We ask R8 to stick a wine label. It is relatively expensive because it is stuck by hand and we worked our prices out based on our labour rate.
The idea for sandblasted vinyl is to give the effect of a sandblasted window the traditional way. Sandblasted vinyl has a durable look and is usually used at upmarket offices against windows for privacy. It is very popular for the use of glass in open plan offices. The idea is to cut out the logos from a solid sandblast sheet so that the logo stands out on the glass. Or you could cover a window with shapes, solid sandblasting or printed sandblasting vinyl.
