Reflective Sticker Printing
We supply councils, contractors and radio stations throughout the UK, with their reflective sign and sticker 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, eye-catching 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.
Can you have full colour reflective self adhesive stickers?
No full colour isn't an option when printing this type of stickers. We would recommend ideally limiting the colours to just one or two.
How much of the sticker is reflective?
This depends on your design. The ink is printed over the top of the reflective vinyl so anywhere the ink appears will be non-reflective. For the best results we would recommend a simple design or logo with plenty of blank space.
How large can you print reflective stickers?
We can print stickers up to 1.2 m (1200mm) wide by any length.
Are reflective stickers waterproof?
Yes they are printed on vinyl which is waterproof. A lot of our reflective stickers are used on outdoor temporary road signs.
What colour reflective vinyl is available for printing stickers?
There are three different colours available, yellow, orange and white.
Are reflective stickers suitable for outdoor use?
Yes they are suitable for outdoor use and are a popular choice for use on temporary outdoor road signs.

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."
