The highest quality full-color sticker printing in Denver
Stickers are one of the more popular items that we produce – Nearly ten percent of our orders are for sticker printing or label printing.
With our Mimaki print-cut wide format printer, Denver Print Company is capable of handling large and small runs of high definition sticker prints. As the name implies, this printer can print and cut stickers at the same time. Having the ability to print and cut at the same time is faster and cheaper. This savings get passed on to our customers.
We take pride in the quality of our stickers, which means that we use only the highest quality and most durable vinyl. Any size, shape, or color sticker and can be produced, and we can deliver them to you individually cut, on a sheet, or custom cut.
Sticker printing is pretty simple, right?
While sticker printing seems like a pretty straightforward concept, the more one gets into the details, the more it becomes apparent that not all stickers are created equal.
As you consider your sticker design, the first decision to make is on the cut of the sticker. Simple-shaped stickers, such as circles, squares, ovals, or triangles, are less expensive and have a faster production time.
Custom cut stickers cost an extra $25 and usually take an extra day of production. This is because a graphic designer usually has to go into the art file and manually trace the line of where the cut should be. Depending on the complexity of the cut, this can be a very time-consuming process. Keep in mind, also, that there are limitations to how detailed the cutter is able to cut and to how narrow the vinyl can be cut without risk of tearing.
Standard stickers are printed on white vinyl, just as an office printer would print on paper. This allows for full-color designs, and any space left not printed remains white. But there are other options…
Clear vinyl is a popular choice for stickers being applied to glass. This allows for transparency in the design, or for a design without white around the edges at less cost than a custom cut.
Reverse-print vinyl allows for the artwork to be printed on the adhesive side of the sticker. This works great for window stickers, as the sticker can be applied to the inside of a window with the design facing out.
Yet another option is die-cut vinyl. Technically, this is not a material-choice option, as it uses the same type of vinyl as our standard print-on-white-vinyl stickers. The difference with die-cut stickers is the color of the vinyl and the production method. There doesn’t have to be printing at all with this type of sticker, just cutting. A design, or lettering, is created in a single color or on top of a multi-color design and the outline of the design becomes the cut-line. The design is then cut out of a piece of pre-colored or printed vinyl. The process is sort of the opposite of creating a stencil.
Vinyl is a relatively durable material on its own, but for a sticker to last outside for a long time, it should be laminated. If a sticker is placed inside and away from a sunny window, or if it is only intended for temporary use, you can probably skip the lamination. For any other scenario, we highly recommend lamination for your stickers. It will make them more water-resistant and more UV resistant. Un-laminated stickers are just as likely to fade in the sun as they are to peel off after getting wet.
Label printing – What’s the difference?
In reality, not much. Obviously, stickers are more graphics-oriented, often featuring just a logo or a few words, while labels are more information-oriented. Also, with labels, there is often less concern for long-term durability. Meaning, the desired lifespan of a label is usually less than that of a sticker. It only has to last from initial application until the trash can. For this reason, many companies decided to go with a paper-based label for their products. These are cheaper and will save you money when doing a large run. If you think paper labels are right for you, Denver Print Company can do that too.
We have created custom stickers for new products like lip balms, soups, candy bars and energy drinks. Over the last few years, we have even created stickers for marijuana edible products. Stickers make a great low-cost label that allows a new business to test different labels before committing to larger offset sticker printing that has higher quantities and a much higher price point. With low-quantity and low-cost sticker printing, you can now test hundreds of designs before committing. This will save you a lot of money. Contact us today!

I had a rush client job and Denver Print Company came through last minute! Thank you again!
Overall very pleased and satisfied. There was some confusion regarding the completion time and it had us quite worried, but DPC pulled through and made it happen.
After comparing DPC with other options available nationwide, we decided on DPC for the following reasons: 1. Price 2. Ease of accessibility 3. Ability to upload actual file that graphic was created in 4. Quality of product 5. (During the Convention) Several consumers came to our booth because of the banner. Many commented that they were intrigued because of it. As a result of these, it is an easy decision to utilize DPC again and again in the future
I have used online printers in the past and you guys are a bit more expensive but being able to have a local printer and someone I can easily chat with is very important. While quality and timeliness is important, nothing can replace good customer service and communication and your staff does that very well.
★★★★★ They do great work. We had them design our menus for our restaurant and they turned out beautiful. They are friendly and super helpful.
★★★★★ Excellent team working at Denver Print Company. They gave us exactly what we wanted at a great price. Communication was excellent.
Working with Carlos and Kala was an absolute pleasure!! The project was new to us and to them but they made it work amazingly well and we are so pleased. Great job Denver Print Company!!!
★★★★★ They did a great job on my roll up banner
I was very pleased with the fast communication from the staff and ability to work with my inexperience with Adobe Illustrator.
★★★★★ I was under a deadline but DPC worked with me to get my designs ready and approved and had my banner and CD covers ready for me right before I left for tour! They're very easy to work with and the quality of their work is incredible. Will definitely be going back!
Denver Print Company provides exceptional one-on-one customer service. They've been able to meet all our needs -- even on short notice! We've been really happy with the product quality and very competitive prices. They're definitely our go-to for large format items such as our company branded tablecloths. Highly recommended!
Easy to communicate and get my ideas through. The turnaround from purchase to pick up was fast with excellent service.
A little miscommunication on my deadline but was quickly resolved on the same day and when I got my menu's there were a few things wrong on my part but again quickly resolved. Excited to have our new menus on the wall!!
I don't see anything that needs immediate improvement.
I have always had a great experience with your company and team, every time I make contact. Service and products are always affordable, done right and on time. Thank you.
I wanted to thank you again for coming to our rescue last week. You produced some epic-quality targets and signs for us on a serious 11th-hour request, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the final product.
I am a local artist working out of Denver. Recently, I decided to use photographs of my paintings to make "Jennie Lou Art" calendars. I googled "printing companies" and came across "Denver Print Company". As I began working with Jessica and her team, I was very impressed by the customer service, attention to detail, reasonable prices, and prompt execution of my order. Thank you for your kindness and help, I look forward to working with you all again soon!
As a professional graphic designer, Denver Print Company has been my ace in the hole for printing all my major projects. I have relied on their top quality products, service and expertise for years. They are always on the cutting edge of print technology. Their prices are excellent! Best in town!
I have been using Denver Print Company since it opened. Not only does Dan and his team provide great service and quality products, he also brings his knowledge and experience as a business owner to help ensure your project has the impact you want.

I wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with our banner. The entire team loves it!
Francely is awesome to deal with. I appreciate it.
This company is AMAZING! Not only did they design my companies logo but they did a 4 foot X 4 foot 3D print of it for my office and everybody who walks in is blown away by it and asks me where I got it done. They handle all of my business card needs and even helped us come up with a better design for them. I am ordering old boxing posters to be blown up and printed next. We love Denver Print!
Denver Print Company came through 100% with their services and staff for me and my company. This year I was presented with a unique challenge of finding a material that could be used as targets for a paintball field. I was given sample materials to test for durability. After choosing the material, I began looking at various graphics for targets. The project was completed by my deadline and the graphics looked great. They even checked in with me on site to make sure that the project was completed to my standards and expectations.
I needed a project done with a 2-day turnaround. The Denver Print Co was amazing. They worked with me to get it done and the result was exactly what I needed. They even stayed a few minutes late to let me pick it up! I would highly recommend them for any of your printing needs!!
We purchased a large step and repeat setup from the Denver Print Company and are very happy with the end result. The team there was knowledgeable, friendly to work with, and produced a fantastic product. Great company to use for your printing needs.
I hired Denver Print Company to design several print pieces for my new company Fitmd. They did a great job with our business cards, flyers, posters and even helped with t-shirts and polos for our Doctors. You are a true value for any business getting started. Fitness Trainer design
When we were referred to Daniel the owner of Denver Print Company form the owners of the 3 margaritas we knew we had the right company for the job. Over the last year they have proved time and time again that they are more than capable of helping our growing restaurant with amazing marketing ideas and good looking prints every single time.
Denver Print company has helped several of our team members with great looking branded products. We have ordered postcards and membership cards every month for the last 2 years. They have always honored their commitment to timely orders and exceptional customer service. The prices can't be beat locally, thats why we drive almost all the way across town to pick up our prints. They are truly a Herbalife Trusted Vendor
I have worked with many printers. I only use Global Elements, because they understand my business; have great customer service; and do an excellent Job. Prior to me giving all my printing business I shopped around long and hard, beyond excellent service, we found their prices to be the best in Colorado. We even looked on the internet, but the Global Element pricing was much better. I strongly recommend them!
We ordered two banner stands for a Local Marketing Summit we were sponsoring in Denver. We needed them rush and the team at Denver Print Company were extremely helpful in communicating about the job virtually. The banner stands turned out great and at a very good price. Highly recommend.
I have worked with the Denver Print company for just over a year. As a owner of Business I understand the importance of first impressions. I continue to do business with Dan and his crew because they care about my image and the products that they put out as much as I do. I very much recommend the Denver Print Company.
I have worked with Denver Print Company for almost 4 years now. Daniel helped me with a web design for my original music. Although music isn't my full time job - yet (maybe one day!), the web site has allowed me to share my songs with people that I have met all over the United States. As I develop this skill, I use this site to explore music opportunities and possibilities. Daniel has always helped me with web site changes, additions and maintenance issues. My musical success could very well be a result of the great support given by Daniel and his staff for my web site. That is why I will continue to do business with Denver Print Company and why I feel confident that anyone that uses this company will be satisfied with their products and services. Oh yeah - did I mention that they helped me with the design of my logo --- the business print products that he supplied to me are now in the hands of people throughout the United States. Who knows where that may lead? The answer is: Unless you make an effort to promote your ideas, products or services, no one will ever know! But now, with the help of Denver Print Company ... I have a chance! Thank you DPC!
This company has been helping my small business since day 1. From my logo to the signage and vehicle wrap design they have done it all. I highly recommend their services
