Everything You Need For Sticker Making

So you want to create your own stickers! That’s cool, but do you know all the equipment you need to start making them? No? Well, don’t worry, as I’ve compiled this list with all the essentials you need. So if that sounds interesting, then keep on reading.

#1 – A Sticker Making App

Let’s start off with the software. There are many sticker-making apps around the internet, but the best two are Canva and Adobe Illustrator. That’s because both of them offer a lot of creative control. However, if you aren’t a great designer, you’re going to need to outsource the design on freelance platforms like Fiverr and Upwork.

#2 – A Printer

You’ve got your design. Great, now we need a printer to print it on our stickerpaper. But which printer to get? The rule of thumb is that you should get a photo printer. That’s because it has specialised in printing illustrations which means you’ll get fantastic looking stickers.

My two recommendations are Brother VC-500W and HP Sprocket Portable.

#3 – A Cutting Tool

And lastly, we need something to cut with. There are two ways to do them. You can either use your trusty scissors or a sticker cutting machine like Cricut. Each one has its own benefits and cons. Scissors are cheaper but won’t give you a smooth cut. And Cricut is the counter opposite – smooth cuts but more expensive.


And these are the tools you’ll need to start creating your own stickers. But what if you don’t have money to buy all of them? Then the best next alternative is to order your custom stickers online with Stickerapp. There you’ll just have to provide them with the design and measurements, and soon you’ll find your stickers on your doorstep.
