I have to make a sticker for a pair of glass doors. It will be printed on vinyl and has to be translucent. Is there any specific process to incorporate the translucency? I’ve designed clear stickers before but I’m unsure about a translucent one. Do I reduce the opacity of the body or do I leave it for the printers?
The material itself is translucent. So you you need to visually/mentally factor that in when selecting colors to print. Think of it this way – if you print your solid blue on a clear plastic, an opaque white card, or a translucent vinyl – how that solid blue will look? It depends what that ink hits from medium to medium. The only way in my experience anything looks “solid” on a clear or translucent material is if spot white ink is additionally used. Have you read your product specs from the printer, or asked them?
