Can you explain what a Kiss Cut is?
A

That's the cut that allows the Wacky sticker to peel away from the backing in a special shape, instead of the whole front peeling off, like the current stickers do.

And also a cut that does not go all the way through the paper, like with a die-cut.
The sheet is ‘kissed’ by the cutter, incising just the top layer and not the bottom

I have heard that doing the cuts in the shapes is quite expensive, which is why  they are no longer doing those for the weekly and monthly sets. Has anyone ever heard of any sales figures on any of the ANS series, how high sales would have to be to justify going back to kiss cuts and distribution in stores? I know 500-600 sets isn’t gonna bring it back….

I remember years ago I was reluctant to ask on the forum what "kiss cut" means.

I didn't want to feel foolish and reveal I don't know all there is to know.

I’ve only heard the term used in the past few years, but I always assumed the definition correctly, a rarity for me.  But if Topps continued making their Wackys the right way and included those perimeter cuts so that the Wacky could be peeled, we probably wouldn’t be hearing the term much because no attention would have been drawn to it.
