With over 30 years experience, printing reflective stickers in all shapes, sizes and quantities.
We supply councils, contractors and radio stations throughout the UK, with their reflective sign requirements.
Reflective sticker printing is a specialist printing process, steered well clear of by the majority of printing companies.
The success of the reflective qualities of the finished stickers is greatly determined by a couple of critical elements.
The majority of reflective vinyl sticker printing is used as part of the process of the manufacture of permanent or temporary road signs or vehicle fleet marking. The reflective performance is governed by British Standards (BS) rules, with class types being required for the varying end applications.
Confusingly, the highest spec reflective is now called Class RA2 under BS EN 12899-1 , although it used to be called Class 1, under the old BS 873. This type of reflectivity is high intensity, and is the standard for highway type printed road signs and emergency vehicle reflective decals and striping. It is recognisable by its honeycomb appearance, and traditionally manufactured using glass beads, although the same standard can now be achieved by moulding prisms into the surface of the vinyl that reflect the light.
Stepping down in cost, and with a lesser specification, the next category is Class RA1 (the old Class 2)
This is used to produce signage and custom reflective stickers of lesser importance, such as street signs, direction signs as well as a multitude of safety uses such as markings helpful in the dark.
Away from the standards and classifications required for highway type work, reflective stickers can be used to great effect as fun, promotional be safe be seen giveaways, popular with children.
As the long winter nights are with us, road safety becomes a priority, and Be Safe Be Seen campaigns begin. The stickers are illuminated by vehicle headlights, and give drivers a warning of pedestrians ahead.
Using reflective vinyl, eyecatching printed stickers can be produced in various shapes and sizes, and as well as promoting a valuable message, can help illuminate clothing, bikes, rucksacks and school bags.
The throwaway backing paper can be printed too, giving an opportunity for further details or sponsorship.
Be Safe Be Seen sticker campaigns are effective, popular and fun. The custom printed reflectorised stickers will last for years in all outdoor conditions, and will help to keep children and the more vulnerable people safe in the long winter nights.

"We have been supplied quality Vinyl stickers by Screen Print and Display for at least 6 years. Our business started back in the early ‘00’s, and quite a number of other suppliers had been used until we tried Screen Print & Display. Since then we have not need to go anywhere else. Our stickers need to be tough, with a double lamination, and very adhesive, for submerge water use. We can highly recommend Screen Print & Display for quality products, customer service, and cost."
