What Makes a Great Sticker Face?

What Makes a Great Sticker Face?

If you haven't heard already we can make stickers out of pretty much anything! What you may not have heard though, is that there are a few secrets to making a really GREAT sticker. Who doesn't love awesome stickers?

Let's go through some examples of good and not-so-good photo examples:

Good: The subject is well-lit with no harsh shadows or highlights. Their head isn't cut off or too far away in the frame and they are also facing the camera. The photo is also in focus. Winner Winner!

Good: This is a good example if you are looking to get two heads in a sticker. The photo is well-lit and clear and their heads are touching. The key for multiple head stickers is for the the heads to be touching together. This makes for an ideal trace job and good looking sticker!

Good: For stickers of animals and pets the same rules apply. Have their face well-lit, close in the frame and clear. A cute face doesn't hurt either ;)

Not-so-good: This is an example of a not-so-good photo to use for making stickers. The subject is far away and dark. When enlarged the face will not be clear and look pixel distorted.

Not-so-good: The subjects may be close to the camera but their heads are partially cut off and the photo is low resolution. We recommend finding another image if your photo has any of these issues.

Not-so-good: We do not recommend sending in pre-cut photos. When tracing your photo it is best for our team to have the whole photo to work with.

Key things to remember when getting sticker faces:

• Clear well-lit photo

• Subject's head fits in the frame and isn't too far away

• Photos with a 300dpi is ideal

A good general rule to is to enlarge the photo you would like to use to about the size of the sticker you're ordering. If the photo is pixelated then it will print pixelated. 

If we think your photo is a bit too dark we will lighten it for you but be aware that results may vary.

We hope this helps you achieve your goal of receiving the best sticker faces on the planet. We can't wait to see what you create!
