A graphic sticker needs to be printed in advance and applied with glue. It makes it limitless for any content that you’d like to print on. To apply graphic stickers onto acrylic displays, we need to use special glue to make it bubbleless. You need to be careful with the edge of the sticker and the display. If the workers are not experienced, the sticker would not be aligned with the display.
