If you're looking for a sticker that gleams and glows with a holographic shimmer, you've come to the right place! 

We specialize in setting up holographic stickers and labels, plus offer many different options depending on how you want your design to present. The options and possibilities with holographic are endless with just a bit of direction from you! 

First off, keep in mind that the best type of file for a holographic item is fully vectorized. From there, you'll want to build layers into your file to show what elements you want to be holographic and which parts of the sticker or label you want to have a more solid appearance. We use a white layer to achieve this look. Any areas of the artwork that HAVE a white layer behind it will not present as holographic, but areas that do NOT have a white layer will let the texture of the material shine through!

The colors of your design will also play a part in how the holographic texture appears. The darker the ink, the lower the shine of the holographic material. The lighter the ink, the more you will notice that shimmery texture. 

Don't have a fully vectorized file to work with? That's ok! As long as it's at least 300dpi at your requested size, our art team can help! Just let us know in the Special Instructions field which areas of the design you would like to be holographic and we'll take care of the rest.

If we have any trouble setting up a proof for your items, our Customer Service team will reach out to you for additional information.
