7- Let the tape dry completely so that the stickiness returns.
Everytime I make a sticker it comes out really light and I can barely see it what am I doing wrong?

does it stick on Prismacolor markers and ink pens? I tried it like that, and the ink pen looked faded on the paper, and the color didn’t even go on the tape.

Could I use this technique to create one of those “objects in mirror are losing” car mirror stickers?
5- Soak in water for 5 minutes (The bigger your sticker is, the longer it’ll need to soak).
2- Cover the image completely with clear packing tape (The heavier duty tape give much better results than thin tape).
Put the cut out motive into the bowl of water and let it soak for some minutes.
8- Attach the tape sticker to anything you would use a normal sticker on.

I can imagine two possible problems: Either you’re really not rubbing enough or the glue of your tape doesn’t like water. You could try to wet a bit of your tape and rub it without applying any paper. If it turns cloudy, the tape is the problem.
Always happy to hear from you! Your comments, shares and all other interactions are very welcome. Thanks for watching!
Greetings, I love your idea of making stickers. But I’m having trouble. I have a HP printer/scanner/copier All In One” That’s what it says on it. It’s not an ink jet. But the ink just runs away in the water. I did make some cool stickers as practice, but only with magazine photos. Those turned out very good! I also tried a school issued photo of my daughter. That did not work either. I want to make some stickers of my family…not magazine people. Haha! What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
Use your finger to rub away the paper. Keep on rubbing until all the paper is gone, sometimes it goes easier when you wet your finger from time to time. Let the sticker dry. Don’t worry if the sticker doesn’t feel sticky, it will stick again when dry.
Stick the packing tape on top of the motiv. Use the spoon to rub the tape against the print to make sure that all the toner sticks to the tape.
what paper did you use? i tried it in my inkjet and use ppc paper or bond paper it didn’t work.

6- Remove the paper from the tape by rubbing on it. The image is left behind on the tape.

I guess so; As long as you have a laser printer or a copy machine as well as some suitable clear tape available, there’s nothing speaking against it. The stickers are clear as “objects in mirror are losing” stickers usually are, the do not affect the mirror and you can make them quite small if you want, cutting close to the text.
Printable clear labels are quite pricy and often not available in small quantities. But there is a easy way to produce your own transparent stickers using packing tape.
Ordering one of those stickers online takes too long for my liking since shipping from the usa to Belgium takes quite some time
1- Print your image with a laser printer (Take into consideration the width of the tape).
Regular copy paper. The problem in your case is not the paper, but the printer; The process only works with laser printers or a xerox, inkjet doesn’t work.
When completely dry, you can stick your sticker wherever you want, e.g. on a glass jar.
Clear labels are quite pricy but it’s possible to make your own at home using packing tape. It’s a really cool, inexpensive and simple DIY image transfer technique. I used black and white but it does work with color also. It can be used just like a clear sticker, with your own custom designs for pantry jars, spice containers, gift tags, on glass, plastic and wood.
What if you draw the design onto paper and ink it? If you try to make it into a sticker would it work?
4- Cut along the edge of the printed area and trim away any excess.
You need: Laser print or copy of your motive (The maximum width or height should not exceed the width of your packing tape) Clear packing tape (I used tesapack® strong 66m * 50mm) Bowl of water Spoon Scissors
Is it necessary to stick the tape immediately after printing?!
Sounds like you’re doing everything right. I think the problem is with the printer.Is the word LaserJet or Color LaserJet on your printer? That’s how HP calls their laser printer. OfficeJet means it’s ink, which won’t work.The fact that the ink washes off with water sounds strange to me; Either it is in fact ink, and then it will not work to make stickers, or something is wrong with your printer and/or paper.

3- Press down with the back of a spoon so that the tape adheres to the image. It will also eliminate bumps and bubbles.
Can this be made with a inkjet printer ? Or has to be laser ? Thanks
Mine keep coming out cloudy. Am I not rubbing the paper hard enough? What am I doing wrong?
I don’t think it would work with ink… with coloured pencils maybe, but I have not tested that…
I haven’t tried that myself, but I don’t think so… it needs to be something which remains on top of the paper and doesn’t get absorbed by the paper like markers or ink…
I guess it’s due to the tape you’re using. If it’s glue is not very strong, the transfer will not work very well.
