How Stickers are Made
Stickers may look simple and easy to make, however, it is way harder than people think. Stickers are first made by making the image on the computer. Then sheet of photo polymer goes onto a exposure machine and puts plastic on top. Inside, the vacuum pulls the negative to the photo polymer. Then, ultra violent light transfers the art to the photo polymer in seconds. They make many of them.
Now, the photo looks really boring. To make the photo stand out from the background they use this machine that removes materials surrounding the transferred images. They use different chemicals and heavy duty brush to take it off. Once they do that, they put paint in a machine that makes the stickers have color. And then finally, its good to go. Stickers are a lot harder to make without knowing it. But it sure is worth the process once you get them.
