What is a transfer sticker?

Let’s begin with the basics: what are transfer stickers?

A transfer sticker, in its essence, is a versatile adhesive graphic or design that’s meticulously cut and crafted to the shape and has no background. 

Another thing that sets our transfer stickers apart from traditional stickers is its unique application process. With transfer stickers, your design is sandwiched between a backing layer and a transfer tape.

For applying transfer stickers, first you remove the backing layer. Once you do it, the sticker stays on the transfer tape. It’s time for you to apply these 2 layers to your desired surface, rub it so the sticker adheres firmly, and remove the transfer tape. This unique setup allows for easy and precise application, ensuring that your sticker lands exactly where you want it.

This process requires an in-depth guide and practice, so we encourage you to read our previous article, “How to Apply Transfer Stickers Properly” to master this art with zero room for error or damage.
