Here’s What We Need:

-Winter Hats
-Gloves
-Sweaters
-Winter/Rain/Snow Jackets
-Scarves
-NEW Wool Socks
-Blankets
-Men’s, Women’s, AND Children’s Items

Where to Bring It:

Durable Product Labels | Core Surf

Core Surf has been a DCS customer for several years and in that time they’ve been able to explore the depth of applications for stickers.

A perfect example: these Digital Die-cut Sticker with Matte Laminate created for the sole purpose of product labels. Heavy-duty, stickable, no glare, and ready to write on with a Sharpie (or similar marker).

How To Outline Your Type

See that message above?

The Font in your design has gone missing. In order to make your stickers, we’re going to need to get it back.

A lengthy hunt of the Font file isn’t completely out of the question, but if you really want tackle the issue at it’s source just convert your Font to outlines.

Here’s how to in Adobe Illustrator:

1. Select all live type.
2. Click Type Menu > Create Outlines
3. Save your file.

This turns the letterforms into shapes, preserving the type on any platfrom and also avoiding a common misstep in the process of ordering your stickers.

Thanks for sitting in on another bit of Sticker Education. Read more of our Art Requirements and file setup tips, then Request A Quote.
