New Glossy and Transparent Stickers

Stickers are one of the most popular products on Redbubble. Customers can’t get enough of slapping them on pretty much everything. Laptops, water bottles, bike helmets, guitars, doors and pets have all been embellished with your stickery art. So we’re very excited to add Glossy and Transparent stickers to the mix. To save confusion, our original stickers have been renamed Matte (we suggested Gavin but some killjoy vetoed that idea).

About Glossy and Transparent Stickers

Redbubble stickers are super durable and water-resistant. They’re made from removable vinyl and printed with a kiss-cut. Kiss-cutting means the edge of each sticker is cut by a sharp metal die or laser but the cut does not penetrate the sticker’s backing.

Transparent stickers have a 1/8 inch (3.2mm) transparent border around each design. They’re perfect for sticking on glass and plastic. Glossy stickers have 1/8 inch (3.2mm) white border around each design and have a vibrant finish which makes your designs even more eye-catching.

Stickers come in four sizes:

Small – 2.85 x 3.80 inches
Medium – 5.5 x 5.5 inches
Large – 8.5 x 8.5 inches
Extra large – 14 x 14 inches

The maximum print size in pixels is 2800 x 2800 and if you want to make the most of the transparency, your files should be in png format.

Adding New Stickers to Your Shop 

You’ll find stickers grouped together as one tile in the uploader. To enable Transparent and Glossy stickers for an individual design:

  • Go to the stickers tile in the uploader
  • Click on the sticker image to open the options
  • Click on the second tick box to open Availability and Markup
  • Tick the format you want to enable and apply changes

You can also use the bulk editor to enable the new sticker formats now that they’re live.

  • Go to Manage Portfolio
  • Tick the works you want to add
  • Click “Available on” from the menu at the top of the page
  • Choose Glossy or Transparent Stickers from the drop down menu
  • Click “Enable”

We’re sure Transparent and Glossy stickers are going to be a hit with customers so we’d encourage you to add any new designs you’ve been working on, and share your newest products on your social profiles. And while you’re enabling your designs, it’s a good opportunity to revisit the tags. Tags are the only way people can find your work in Redbubble’s search so they’re super important. Have a look at our post on The Art of Tagging on Redbubble for more hints and tips.
