We're proud to offer more than 40 sticker paper materials for all of your crafting and business needs. If you're not sure where to start, read the descriptions of our most popular options below!

Standard White Matte Sticker Paper

Our most popular and versatile material, white matte sticker paper features a bright white facesheet capable of producing vibrant colors and clean prints. The permanent adhesive is strong for long-lasting custom stickers. Best of all, this material can be run through both laser and inkjet printers.

Removable White Matte Sticker Paper

Removable sticker paper features the same bright white facesheet and dual laser-inkjet compatibility as our standard white matte, but with an easy-off adhesive. The low-tack backing can be removed cleanly and easily from most surfaces and won't leave residue behind.

Weatherproof Polyester Sticker Paper

Our white polyester sticker paper is tear-resistant, waterproof, and smudge-proof. The bright white facesheet and semi-gloss top coat help imagery and artwork pop. Designed for laser printers and coupled with a weatherproof adhesive, your stickers will be able to withstand extreme conditions and moist environments.

Weatherproof Matte Inkjet Sticker Paper

Our weatherproof matte sticker paper is popular for its matte facesheet and weatherproof properties. The waterfast inkjet coating absorbs your design quickly and produces beautiful colors when dry. Use it to create durable stickers with your inkjet printer that won't smear or tear in use. The weatherproof adhesive is another added plus, allowing your stickers to hold up to moisture and extreme conditions.

White Gloss Sticker Paper

Our white gloss sticker paper can produce photo-quality stickers. The high-shine material is designed to be eye-catching and help colors pop. Created for inkjet printers, this premium material with a standard permanent adhesive outshines others.
