HOW TO CREATE KISS CUT STICKERS USING PHOTOSHOP

Posted in Tutorials by Zap! on Mar 22nd, 2017

The following steps show you how to create your own kiss cut sticker designs using Adobe Photoshop. Need help with your designs? Contact us with any questions or use our design service and let us do the work for you.

1. Download our sticker templates

Download our sticker templates from here and open your chosen size.

2. Importing your Artwork

Create or import your artwork into the 'Artwork' layer. Make sure your artwork fits inside of the template.

Please don't rename existing layers or create additional layers as this will confuse our systems when processing your designs.

If you have used any effects / layer styles on any of your layers you MUST flatten them before saving. To do this simply right click on the applicable layer and select 'Rasterize Layer Style' from the menu.

3. Creating your Cut Lines

Show us where you would like your stickers to be cut by creating a silhouette on your 'Cut Line' layer.

Please don't rename existing layers or create additional layers as this will confuse our systems when processing your designs.

If you have used any effects / layer styles on any of your layers you MUST flatten them before saving. To do this simply right click on the applicable layer and select 'Rasterize Layer Style' from the menu.

An easy way to create a silhouette is to duplicate your sticker artwork onto the cut line layer. Select the 'Lock Transparent Pixels' icon.



Open the fill command window (SHIFT + F5) and fill with 100% black. Fill in any areas that you DON'T want cutting out.

If your artwork goes right up to the edge of your cutline, make sure you add at least 1mm of bleed to your designs to prevent any visible, unprinted vinyl edges from showing on your finished stickers. Use the blue borders of the template to add your bleed.

4. Saving your designs

Save your design in .psd format as follows 'YOURNAME-ORDER#-KISSCUTSTICKER1of2.psd'
