Design your glossy stickers

When doing glossy sticker printing from home we recommend choosing a simple design with a few colours- this will save you printer ink and avoid any bleed issues. However, if you're getting custom glossy stickers from Avery, we'll print and deliver them to your door so you can go a little extra with the design. Use as much colour as possible, the gloss finish will make it pop. If you're using fun materials such as our glossy gold don't forget to leave a transparent background and maintain a bright colour palette to stand out.

What are glossy labels & stickers?

A glossy label is created when a specialist gloss varnish is applied as a finishing coat to any label or sticker. It provides a high shine finish that captures light and attention. This gloss layer also provides protection when applied over ink, in the case of our custom glossy stickers it makes the text longer-lasting reducing scratching and fading.

At Avery, we offer over 6 materials with a gloss finish including paper, plastic and gold. If you want hard-wearing waterproof glossy stickers use materials such as plastic or clear. You can get a  luxury look with our glossy gold and silver or get a nice shine for cheap with paper; which is high-quality despite the low price. Not looking for a permanent solution? We also offer a glossy finish on our removable labels. 

What can glossy stickers be used for?

There are infinite uses once you create personalised glossy stickers. If you're ordering from Avery then we recommend using our print service to get the maximum benefit of glossy labels as we're able to offer so many more material and shape options. Fans of this finish say they make great product labels as the high shine finish creates a professional look. We've seen them used on products such as bottles, cosmetics, candles and more. One great use for Avery round glossy labels is as logo stickers! The great print quality and high shine finish are the perfect combo to create logo stickers that pop. 

You can also order glossy paper sheets to print at home available in a range of shapes and sizes - these come in loose sheets in any quantity you need. Often these are used by business owners or home users to create fun stickers for weddings, packaging, envelopes and more. The ease of being able to print what you need when you need it is really great. When printing from home customers often create colourful illustration stickers and thank you stickers. 

Gloss doesn't just need to be paper you can also create waterproof, durable stickers that are made from plastic to get that lovely finish with more benefits. These work great for plastic containers and bottles and stick to many surfaces such as cardboard and glass.
