Using eco-friendly latex inks and cutting edge printing equipment at our in-house studio, we have the versatility to produce practically any sticker, vinyl or self-adhesive product you want, all with a custom message or logo. Your stickers will be digitally printed which is particularly cost-effective for short runs.
Computer Cut to Shape
Our stickers can be computer cut to shape which mean that you avoid the expense of having a die set up making contour cutting stickers much more affordable. They can be cut into any shape, with incredible accuracy, the only limit is your imagination!
Check out the video below or our Decal fitting instructions for more information on how to fit your sticker. Some times they can be challenging to fit, but with the correct tools and preparation, you can ensure a perfect fit every time.
Removal procedure for decals with removable adhesives:
These are generally easy removable. Just lift a corner point and start to remove the decal from the substrate. Keep the angle between the removed film and substrate between 45° and 80°.
If some adhesive residue is present after removal, the adhesive may be removed with a cloth, soaked in a mild solvent such as heptane. If the adhesive has hardened, a plastic squeegee can help to scrape off any remaining adhesive residues.
How to removal semi-permanent adhesive stickers
These are generally designed to be NOT easily removed, but following certain procedures, it is possible for most permanent films to be removed.
Tools: To heat the film a hairdryer or industrial hot air gun can be used (or: infrared dryer, hot water, wallpaper steamer), knife, mild solvent (e.g. Heptane), cloths, squeegee.
A cold film breaks easier than a warm one, so: heat a corner area of the film to a temperature of 50-60 °C, lift it carefully with the knife and start to remove it slowly.
Proceed with heating the next area of the film and continue removal. During removal, the film should make an angle with the substrate of 60° to 90°: a larger or sharper angle may result in the film to break easier. Slow removal of the film results in less adhesive residues left on the substrate. Proceed with heating and removal till all film has been removed.
Any remaining adhesive may be removed with a cloth, soaked in a mild solvent.

Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.
If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.
Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.
In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.
Resolution - 100dpi At Full Size
Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi
If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.
Bleed - 5mm All Around At The Final Print Size
If you are creating set size artwork for hardware then please use the product template. If you have ordered a custom size product please ensure you include 5mm of bleed on your design.
You only need to add print bleed to your artwork if the design extends to the edge of the page. If all of your text and images are in the centre of the design and are surrounded by a plain white background, you won’t need to worry about print bleed as the edges will blend seamlessly into your overall design. If any element of the design goes right up to the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed on all sides is necessary.
Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+
Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.
Other things you can do to check your colours:- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)
Fonts - Please Embed, Flatten, Or Convert To Curves
For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).
Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.
Do You Need A Proof?
If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.
We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.
Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.
After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.
Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.
Free Artwork Check
Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.
Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.
If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.
Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.

Our stickers are printed on a monomeric self-adhesive vinyl with a semi-permanent or removable vinyl backing.
What is the expected lifespan of your stickers?
It depends on where and how the sticker is installed and how exposed it is. Outside you should expect the sticker to last up to 3 years.
Is a custom printed sticker the same as a window sticker?
Pretty much but our window stickers offer the option to select reverse print so that you can stick them on the inside of a window facing out. See window stickers for more information
Will the sun damage the sticker?
We print with a UV stable ink that should keep your decal looking sharp for years, but like all print, the sun will impact any type of sign, and cause the colours to fade.
What is the minimum and maximum size you can make?
Large format is our specialisation so we don't print stickers smaller than 75mm x 75mm but when it comes to large stickers you can go up to 2500mm wide by pretty much any length. But fitting that would be challenging to say the least. Our team are always on hand to offer advice so please give us a call.
How many colours can I have?
All our sticker print prices included vibrant full-colour printing. You are able to print any images or text all for the same competitive price.
Can you match RAL colours?
Lots of RAL colours can be closely matched, others can't. So if the colours are critical please provide a RAL reference and ask us to print a sample print.
What will these custom stickers stick to?
The material used on these stickers is intended for flat non-porous surfaces. This includes smooth walls, wood, windows and metal and much more. For more challenging surfaces please call our team on 0208 664 5660 to discuss your requirements.
How can I clean my decal?
Use a soft non-abrasive cloth and a mild detergent.
What is self-adhesive removability?
A self-adhesive film has a good removability if it can be removed easily, in large pieces and without leaving any residues on the application surface.
What is a removable adhesive? Adhesives that have been designed to have a relatively low adhesion level to facilitate removal after the period of use.
What is a Semi-permanent adhesive? Adhesives that have been designed to have a relatively high adhesion level to prevent easy removal during the period of use.
