Regarding these printouts, you have two famous top types: kiss cut and die cut. So, how to differentiate between the two? Here is how:
The main feature of this sticker type is it stays in the backing material. The only part of these that is cut is one of the vinyl decals. So, you cut the border of the decal and the remaining part of the vinyl to the material they stay on. So, they are not separate and have a material that they stick to with multiple of them on one piece of this material.
This type has a custom shape, meaning their vinyl and backing material are cut together. So you can be sure to have a certain sticker shape in this type. Also, these shapes are clear, and the whole product carries them.
As the name implies, these are the ones that do not have any border, and you can customize them to your needs. You can use them on laptops, bottles, and any commonly used product they may work with.
When you have multiple stickers on one sheet that you can peel off and use, they are called sticker sheets. Storing this type is easy, and you can group as well. The best way to group them is to add a certain type on one sheet. So, one theme can stay on one sheet, and you can create a new one for another theme.
Regarding border cut types, you can find durable ones that offer great thickness. They also carry vinyl protection against water and other environmental factors.
This type not only has backing but also is easy to peel. The main difference between them and kiss cut is that they have some backing but still not as much as sheets. Designing this type must use a high-quality image that uses PNG files. At the same time, your printouts should be with the CMYK model and not RGB.
This type allows you to get a 3D version of stickers, and you can also have UV resistance with them. They are clear and also provide a great tactile feeling for customers.
