Dome stickers, also known as dome decals are beautiful type of label having a 3D effect. As the name suggests, these labels are given a domed / rounded finish using a poly urethane / epoxy solution. The finished label has a clear and shiny plastic layer of about 2 mm in height. It tapers or slopes towards the edges of the sticker. This gives the sticker a curvy or rounded surface finish and hence the term ‘dome stickers’.
We use our Roland Print & Cut machine to print out stickers on a vinyl having a high level of adhesion. These sticker are then cut in any desired shape using the in-line plotter. The stickers can be cut in the shape of circles, square or any non linear freehand outline. The resultant print and cut stickers are quite fetching but are flat and limited to the two dimensions.
To give these labels a raised 3D effect, we pour a poly urethane solution on top of the same. This solution is carefully poured to about 2 – 3 mm in height. The liquid solidifies in about 24 – 36 hours. The resultant dome decal in addition to being quite beautiful is impervious to rain, sunlight, dust, etc.
Dome stickers are by no means a new application. They have been around for decades. But previously they were screen or offset printed and one always had to order vast quantities of the same. At Orchid, our digital printing machines will allow us to gladly process orders of as low as 500 stickers.
