Now, I just save my finished, layered file as a .psd and I’m ready to create the artwork for the back of my laptop sticker.

Take out your now flattened sheet of stickers, ready your tape and lay it across the stickers, starting at one end and using your straight edge to lay it down evenly to prevent bubbles and wrinkles. This will help weatherproof the sticker and give it some nice gloss like a vinyl sticker. This step isn’t really necessary, it just depends on the look you wanna go for. My first stickers were just paper- I think it gives it a more home made look.If your sticker is too big for the tape then that’s where the contact paper comes in. Cut out a piece that covers an entire sheet. Uncover one edge of the plastic and lay it down along one edge of the paper. This part is kinda tricky; use your straightedge to lay the plastic down on the paper evenly while simultaneously pulling the backing off the adhesive.When you’re done, just cut the sticker out to their final size and keep them flat to make sure they don’t buckle. I put them in a little pocket in my sketchbook.

Yes. One option is to use agar, which is very easy to find in Asian grocery stores.

The following is a very cool step by step Sticker Tutorial on how to create some custom Clear Vinyl Laptop Stickers, that will glow when placed on your laptop…

– If you’re putting these on public property, don’t be stupid.- There’s no one way to get a design on the sheet. Silk screening is definitely more work but gives it a homemade feel. Getting them printed at a print shop will give you VERY high quality prints with fabulous colors but I doubt they won’t fade in the sun. Kinko’s usually charges $0.50 for a black and white print and $0.75 to $1.00 for color prints.- Make a ton and give them out to friends. -Try to see how big you can print one just for kicks. There were some plotters in the lower design labs in my school so I printed one out that’s about 4′ long by 2′ wide. I did not make this a sticker, instead it’s a poster in my friend’s room. :p- Read the comments, some people have suggested other directions you could go with this.

After completing the artwork setup, I jumped on Stickerobot.com, went to the custom laptop stickers page and clicked ‘Order Stickers’ and went through the simple guided steps to place my order. Then, I uploaded my artwork files for print and counted the days ‘till these bad boys arrived!

I have cabochons. I would like to turn them into stickers. Will any of this be a strong enough binding agent?

All of the supplies are rather common. Contact paper can be found at any art/craft supply store or hardware store.

So the contact paper is sticky on one side, and i should be careful once i place it down on the paper or else it will rip? so i am basically taping tape onto the sticker so it laminates? by the way, thank you so much for this tutorial!

From here, I switched back to my soft brush settings (see previous brush settings) and started painting in the shading details, color and highlights. I do all of my black shading on one layer and add color and highlights afterwards, but you can work however you want. I also always keep everything on separate layers, so that I can easily adjust anything as I go along.

Be mindful that the adhesive works best on porous surfaces. The smooth back of a 3DS may not be the best surface.

After spending some time honing in on the details, the illustration finally matches the vision I had in my head. Now, it’s time to get the file set up for printing my clear, die-cut vinyl sticker.

I’m a little confused. are these lick-and-stick stickers or the kind where you peel off the back and stick it? I have the ingredients ready to go, I just wanna make sure I’m making the kind of stickers I want to sell at a convention 🙂 thanks!

For this task this, I grabbed my Wacom pen again with the hard brush settings and just fixed problem areas by drawing on top of them and smoothing things out.

I have no idea. White wine vinegar is the purest, so it will likely work the best.

thanks for the guide, it’s the most useful one i’ve found so far

Use a drawing program (examples: Photoshop, MS Paint, Autodesk sketchbook, Painttool SAI) and save your image to your computer. Then print as usual. Another option is to use public domain images or creative commons images, provided you adhere to the license’s end use requirements.

You can copy these images to your computer and enhance them if needed (Pixlr is good for this online), then print as required.

Cut out the stickers. Use scissors to cut out the designs you printed or drew. Cut simple square shapes or use scrapbook scissors to give the designs interesting edges. Space all designs of stickers at least 1/8 an inch apart to prevent cutting accidents.

When using tacky sticker sheets, simply pull back the protective liner, revealing the glue. Place the back of your sticker to the glue. Press down to make sure the sticker adheres to the glue. Then, peel the sticker – the glue will now be on the back of the sticker.

Stick on any surface. You will need to use the sticker right away because there is no protective cover on the back. You can cut slightly wide to leave a white border around the image, or you can cut it close.

More advanced sticker creators sometimes leave no border and cut with an Exacto-knife.

If it contains any edible ingredients, like sugar or gelatin, yes, it could.

On a new layer, I fill the selection with 100% magenta to get the basic custom shape.

why is everyone going nuts over this? Ok, i plan on making some for my friends there awesome. But people are using them like they have never heard of regular glue for things like there notebook and stuff. great instructable though!

Cut out the stickers. Use scissors to cut out the designs you drew or printed. Make the stickers as large or as small as you like. For an added touch, use scrapbook scissors that cut decorative designs around the edges.

Try using a paper puncher to make heart, star, and other shaped stickers from patterned paper.

Note: On a Mac, the Apple Logo can be extremely bright, and even with 2 barrier coats of white, the entire logo will shine through the transparent sticker material. Try reducing the monitor brightness to a low setting for optimum results.

i didn’t use elmer’s glue specifically, just random liquid glue i had lying around(i don’t live in america and the brands in my country are completely different). could that be the problem? also this could be a weird question, but can i also do this with wheat paste? a.k.a. does it dry and get sticky again if you wet it?

Remove the paper backing. When you’re ready to use the stickers, peel away the paper protective liner and stick them to the surface of your choice.

Die-Cut Sticker Printing File Set-upNow that the artwork is ready to go, the next step is to create a die-cut line around my creation so that the sticker will get cut to the custom shape that I want. Using the ‘Magic Wand’, I select the transparent background area and inverse it to get a nice selection around my artwork. For custom die-cut shapes, Sticker Robot requires that your cut line is at least 1/8 in. away from your artwork.

Let’s start with the background first. I created the pyramid shape in Adobe Illustrator, then copied & pasted it on top of my sketch on a new layer. Next, I added a ‘layer mask’ to hide the areas I was about to draw in. I also temporarily set the layer ‘blend mode’ to ‘multiply’ to make it easier to see the sketch.

Thanks for following along and I hope you enjoyed seeing how I blasted out this laptop sticker! Hopefully it inspires you to create your own pile of new stickers soon!

Once the rough drawing starts looking pretty good, I selected the left side, duplicated and flipped it to keep the design symmetrical.

Use mailing labels. Draw pictures, shapes, or words onto printable mailing labels. These can be purchased at office supply stores. Cut around the shape, then peel the label off. Place the sticker on wax paper if you don’t want to use it right then.

Awesome picture! Tell us more about it? Click here to share your story.

I need to do something like this. I have stickers on the back of my 3DS, and they are already peeling. Thank you for the tutorial!

I then went to the menu dropdown and choose: ‘Image – Image Rotation – Flip Canvas Horizontal’. Next, I deleted the artwork and replaced it with one of my custom pattern files and added my social media info so people could connect with me online. (I think this is a great way to promote your urls and any other info with your sticker, without compromising the actual artwork on the front.)

A lot of people have been asking me if it’s okay to use a different kind of vinegar over the years. I’m going to say no, and read the comments. White Vinegar is stupid cheap and the purest, so it won’t discolor your sticker stock.

Cover the sticker designs with packing tape. Cut a piece of clear packing tape large enough to cover an entire cut-out design. Place it on the front of the design that you cut or printed out. Press down so that the tape adheres to the design.

When placing the tape on the sticker, make sure to carefully place the tape over the design. Moving the tape after you have started to adhere it can tear the picture. Also, try to not have any bubbles or wrinkles in the tape when you apply it.

Consider using double-sided tape. Double-sided adhesive comes in many forms – rolls, sheets or even sticker maker machines such as Xyron Consider using Washi Tape. Washi Tape is similar to packing tape; it’s great to use for stickers because it sticks when you want, and easily peels off when you want.

If you are looking for a stronger sticker, you could even use duct tape. Washi Tape is available in various colors and patterns.

Buy sticker paper. Craft or office supply stores sell paper that has adhesive on one side. It’s usually lined with a paper backing that you can peel off when you’re ready to use the sticker. Alternately, you can buy tacky sticker sheets.

These sheets allow you to place a picture to the glue, then peel the sticker off, transferring the glue to the back of the sticker. This is great if you want to use sticker sheets with pictures you already have or those cut from magazines.

[6] Buy paper that fits the specifications of your printer. If you don’t have a printer, you can still use sticker paper by drawing your own designs on the surface of the paper or cutting out pictures from magazines and books.

I decided to draw in another monster getting wild in the background, with one stoned eye and one wide open to make use of the glowing leaf area. At this point, I thought it also needed something else to complete the piece, so I also added a geometric, pyramid background to the design to complete the rough sketch. It’s now ready to be rendered up!

No, this glue will not be strong enough to hold something heavy like a cabochon or bead. This glue only works with permeable surfaces. The glue has to soak between the fibers of the paper in order to adhere.

I went through and carefully outlined my sketch with all the solid black lines that it needed for the main shapes.

So long as it was plain white glue and within the right proportions for the concoction it should have worked fine. Wood glue might even work tbh, but that stuff is of course better suited for wood applications. I don’t have any wheatpaste experience, but from what I do know is that it’s sort of like plaster- when it’s dry it stays dry.

To do this, I turned on the rulers to measure and pulled out some guides to see where my cut needed to be. I then went to the dropdown menu and choose ‘Select – Modify – Expand’ and set my selection to expand by 50 pixels, so that it was at least 1/8 in. away from my artwork. (Note: the amount of pixels you expand by will depend on your sticker size and file resolution, so just experiment with this until you find the magic number)

Once I had had the smoothed out shape, I made it a selection and created a new layer called “Die-Cut” and gave the selection a 2-pixel stroke to indicate the cut line.

Refine That Crappy SketchNow it’s time to go digital. First, I imported and opened up a pencil sketch .jpg in Photoshop and added a light blue adjustment layer to make it easier to draw on top of. Next, I created a new layer and started refining the sketch with my Wacom Cintiq tablet. In this phase, the concept starts to evolve and develop, but it’s still just a rough drawing to be refined again.

Clear Sticker Printing Set-upSetting stickers up for clear vinyl is actually pretty easy. I just leave the area that I want clear as a transparency layer in the background, so that whatever is transparent in my file will not be printed. Sticker Robot will then, back all my artwork areas with a thick coat of white ink.

Get your Artwork on the Back TooI also always take advantage of Sticker Robot’s sticker back printing upgrade. This is an option where you can create black & white, or grayscale artwork to be printed on the actual paper backing that peels off your sticker.

Cut stickers out of magazines or print your own designs. For this method, you’ll need designs that have already been printed on paper with water-resistant ink. You can use shiny magazines or books, or you can experiment with the ink your printer uses to print out designs from your computer.

If you are printing pictures, make a test copy to get a little wet before you try to make a print sticker.[5] Cut out pictures and words you like using a pair of scissors. When choosing pictures, think about the width of the packing tape.

Each sticker should be able to fit on one strip. The picture can be the size of the packing tape or smaller. If you want a larger sticker, you will have to place two pieces of packing tape stacked on each other.

This can be tricky. You will have to align the tape so that they overlap just a little bit so you have no paper peeking through. This can mess up your sticker. You will have a seam where the two pieces of tape meet.

If you want to be sure it is completely dry, leave it overnight.

That’s it! Now, just hit ‘Save’ and you are ready to order your stickers!

Rub the front of the stickers. Use a penny or your nail to press on the front of the stickers and rub the surface, so that the tape starts to bind with the ink on the paper. Continue for a couple of minutes to ensure that the ink and the adhesive become one.

(In the photo below, you’ll see that I also temporarily set the ‘layer blend mode’ to ‘multiply’ so I could see my artwork behind the shape)

This part can be vital to how your sticker sticks. Not ever stroke will reach the end of the page, if it does then you’ve probably put too much on. Longways should take about three strokes and shortways should take two. Once you’ve covered the sheet make sure the coat is even on every sticker and that they’re all coated. When that layer is dry brush on another layer of adhesive perpendicular to the direction of your first layer and let that dry.Once dry to the touch, the sheets will probably be a little warped. Put them under a stack of books or heavy objects to flatten them out.

I did it n they stick n everythjng used paper u suggested but it discoloured the sticker that was black to start with

I found a couple old Cyclops-looking scribbles that I decided to run with for a big, glowing eye concept and I took some shoots of the sketches with my iPhone.

Let the stickers dry. Once the paper is gone, let the stickers completely dry so that the tape’s adhesive will become sticky again. Use scissors to trim away any extra tape around the design, then stick the stickers to the surfaces of your choice.

Does it have to be vinegar mixed with glue? Can there be an alternative to vinegar for this?

The ratio for glue to vinegar is 2:1. My first few batches were just 2 Tbsp glue and 1 Tbsp vinegar, which gave me about a half dozen letter-sized sheets of stickers (don’t quite remember). However now I just mix up a huge batch and save it in a jar. Make sure you mix the ingredients well.The adhesive is essentially what goes on the back of stamps- it won’t taste horrible if you lick a little bit, but if you slobber it you might get a funky taste stuck on your tongue. Licking also isn’t as good a method of adhesion. I couldn’t tell you the exact chemical reaction, but what I believe happens is when the dry adhesive gets wet it reactivates the glue. So think that when you put the sticker down, you’re pretty much gluing it on. Be mindful of where you put it…

Yes, but where you live, you can find these items in a local craft or office supply store.

i tried this with and without the duct tape, and it didn’t stick either time. what am i doing wrong? could it be the size of the sticker? mine are a little bigger than your cthulhu’s head, but i also tried just cutting out bigger pieces of paper and doing the same thing on them and that didn’t work either.

Head over to the PaleHorse Website and pick up a couple Laptop stickers! He’s got a sweet new “Jaguar” Design as well!

If you are curious about how I set up my brushes, check out the screenshot below for the custom settings I use to get this look. Nothing too fancy here, but I’ve tried a lot of settings over the years and these are my favorites to get this natural, soft shaded look.

For the solid, clean lines I set my brush to the settings below:

No, but there are fabric stickers you iron on to your clothes.

Design the stickers. When you’re making your own stickers, the sky is the limit in terms of design. Use whatever drawing materials you want: colored pencils, markers, pastels, crayons, anything. Make sure your drawing utensil is not washable.

[1] Draw the sticker designs on a thin piece of paper, such as loose leaf paper or paper from a notepad. Consider these creative options when you’re thinking up sticker designs: Draw a self-portrait, or portraits of your friends or pets.

Cut out neat pictures and words from magazines and newspapers. Print out pictures you find online, or pictures you’ve uploaded to your computer. Print them on thin computer paper, rather than photo paper, for best results.

Use sticker sheets you find online with premade stickers you can print out. Make pictures using rubber stamps. Decorate the picture with glitter.

I wanted to know if i could use water to reactivate to glue and peel the sticker off

Use a sticker maker. If you want to make a lot of stickers and you’re willing to spend a little more money ($15 – $20), you can buy a sticker maker machine from a craft store or the Internet. Place your sticker (a drawing, a photo, even a ribbon) into the sticker maker and then pull it through the machine.

Some have a crank and you just crank it through, or some you stick it in one side and pull it out the other, and it will apply the adhesive for you. When the stickers run through, they’re ready to use: just peel and stick.

[10]

Make stickers with contact paper. Draw your designs on the shiny side of the contact paper using sharpies. Cut out the stickers around your designs. Peel off the paper backing and stick to whatever surface you choose.

[9] Contact paper stickers are translucent. They are good to use on colored construction paper.

Render It UpAlright! Now it’s time to get serious and precisely render up the final artwork. First, make sure that your file is set to up as CMYK and that is at least 300 dpi at the final size. (I like to work in at least 600dpi or higher, so I can zoom in on the details without pixilation)

Below is a shot of the final result. Warning: Don’t gaze too long if you want to stay in this dimension and finish the tutorial.

Paint the stickers. Turn the stickers upside down on a sheet of waxed paper or aluminum foil. Use a paint brush or a pastry brush to paint the backs of the stickers with the glue mixture. When you’re finished, let the mixture dry completely.

There’s no need to soak the stickers completely with the adhesive; just brush on a light coating. Make sure the stickers are completely dry before you use them. Store your stickers in a plastic bag or a box until you are ready to use them.

Form Your Rough ConceptTo get started, I looked through my sketchbook of super quick, (often really crappy) pencil sketches to see if there was anything useful to work with. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of fast sketches to capture new ideas, dreams or visions that pop into my head. In this stage, I’m not too concerned with making a technically good drawing. The goal is just getting the idea down on paper and out of my head to remind myself of it later.

Make reusable stickers. For stickers, you can pull off and restick, buy some repositionable glue, which can be found at craft stores and online. After designing and cutting your stickers, brush some of the repositionable glue on the back of your sticker.

Let them completely dry. Then stick and peel and stick again![7]

After my front artwork file is saved, I hit ‘Save as’ and save this second file as “PH_Sticker-Back.psd“

You can put your fingernail under the edge of a corner and then gently pull up.

To accomplish this, I start by merging my artwork into one layer on top of a transparent background. (I also reduced my file size down to 400 dpi instead of 600+.) You’ll notice that I left the 2 eye areas transparent so that the Apple logo will glow through the design when it’s stick on.

does white wine vinegar work too? Just as long as it’s not red wine vinegar etc.?

Since my artwork has a lot of odd areas and nooks, I decided to smooth it out so that my shape was not too complex and had nice clean edges for my custom die-cut shape.

Run the stickers under warm water. One at a time, run them under the water with the paper side facing the stream of water until it begins to fall apart. The ink won’t wash away, but the paper should completely dissolve.

You can help it along by scratching some away. Make sure you get all of the surfaces of the tape wet instead of only focusing on one spot. If you focus on only one part, only that part will be visible.

If the paper won’t come off, continue running it under warm water. An alternate way is to submerge the sticker in a bowl of warm water. Place the sticker completely in the water and allow it to soak for a few minutes.

Lick the stickers. When you’re ready to stick the stickers to various surfaces, simply lick the back, like you would a stamp, and press them down against the surface for a moment. The homemade glue is quite strong, so be careful where you stick them.

(I also deleted the original filled-shape layer, as I no longer needed it)

This clear vinyl sticker is extra special because it is designed to fit perfectly over the glowing logo on your Apple laptop and has the power to transport onlookers into alternate dimensions of time and space. This is of course not limited to just Apple products, you can customize your own laptop, tablet or even phone using this technique.

Make the glue. This glue is similar to the adhesive on envelope flaps and is safe for kids to use. It will bind the stickers to most surfaces but doesn’t include harsh chemicals.[2] To make the glue, mix the following ingredients in a bowl until they are thoroughly combined: An envelope of plain gelatin 4 tablespoons boiling water 1 teaspoon sugar or corn syrup A few drops of peppermint extract or vanilla, for flavoring.

[3] Use different kinds of extract for fun flavors! Apply different flavors to different kinds of stickers, make stickers for your friends with surprise flavors, or use certain holiday-themed flavors for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter.

When you are finished with the glue, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The glue will gel overnight. To liquefy it, place the container in a bowl of hot water.[4] This glue can also be used to seal envelopes.

Find a good, flat surface to put your sticker on. Porous surfaces tend to work best, but sometimes it really depends on the amount of adhesive on the sticker. Use your spray bottle to give the adhesive a few good sprays so that it’s all covered, it’s good to spray from about a foot away so it doesn’t get too concentrated. Too much water will make the adhesive too watery and not dry as well and not enough won’t activate it, you need to play around with it. If you don’t have a spray bottle a damp rag will do. Just brush it over the surface and slap it on. Apply the sticker to the surface and hold it there for a second. Be sure to flatten out any wrinkles or bubbles. If you didn’t weatherproof them with tape or plastic you can give the face of the sticker a few sprays to activate the adhesive absorbed in the paper. Remember: These stickers can be tough to remove, be mindful of where you put them. That’s pretty much it. The few stickers I’ve made have been in high demand from friends and peers. I’ve also passed them around at concerts and given them to potential clients. It really helps to print out a bunch (if you have a good printer with waterproof ink) and make a bunch at once, cut out a few and keep ’em in a baggie. However, if your design’s shape is complex (like the Cthulhu sticker) then be prepared for a world of hurt when you cut out sheet after sheet.

Make It FitNow it’s time to position the rough drawing to make sure it will work well with the glowing laptop logo. I copied an Apple logo from a Google image search and pasted it on top of my design to make adjustments to best fit the size and shape. I also busted out my handy ‘machete ruler’ and measured the logo on my laptop to make sure everything would line up nicely. It’s also a good idea to print out your design and hold it over the Apple logo, just to make sure you’ve got it sized correctly and you like how the sticker will look in real life.

You need:White VinegarWhite Glue (Elmer’s works fine)Your design(s) printed out on paper*A wide brushTupperware container OR jar (optional)Packaging tape OR Clear Contact Paper (optional)**Straight edgeLittle spray bottle (Recommended)Scissors OR X-acto Blade*Regular printer paper works the best I’ve found. I printed some on matte paper and the adhesive didn’t absorb into the paper, making for a weaker sticker.** Utrecht’s art supply carries this in about 36″ rolls. It’s also great for making very crisp stencils. The only bad thing about this is it rips easier than the tape. It’s also a tad expensive, last I remember.Design Tips: Try to fit as many stickers as you can on one sheet. With rectangular or square stickers this shouldn’t be a problem. But with stickers with a more dynamic shape I like to leave about an 1/8″ border around the edge of the ink.

If you want to make your own stickers, draw and decorate your design on a thin piece of paper, then cut out your design into the shape you want. In a small bowl, combine plain gelatin, boiling water, sugar or corn syrup, and a few drops of vanilla. Turn the stickers upside down on a sheet of waxed paper and paint the backs with a light coating of the glue mixture. When you’re ready to stick the stickers to a surface, just lick the back, like you would a stamp, and press them down!

Create stickers with double back tape. Draw your design on any paper, or cut pictures from magazines. After the sticker has been cut to the shape you want, place double back tape on the back of the sticker.

Cut the tape down so it doesn’t go over the sides of the sticker. Place on wax paper until you are ready to use the sticker.[8]

It should give you a reasonable amount for 10-15 small stickers.

Design your stickers. Design the stickers on your computer or use markers or a pen to draw directly on the surface of your sticker paper. You’re only limited by the size of the paper – if you want, you could make an 8 1/2″ by 11″ sticker! Design stickers on your computer using Adobe Photoshop, Paint, or another program that allows you to draw.

You could also simply save some photos from your personal album or the internet to use as stickers. When you’re finished, print the sticker designs onto the sticker paper. If you have a physical photograph or drawing that you want to make into a sticker, you can scan it onto your computer or upload a digital photo.

Format this file on Photoshop. Paint, Word, or Adobe Acrobat, then print it onto the sticker paper. Draw directly on the sticker paper with pens, pencils, or even paint. Just make sure you don’t get the paper too wet, or it may interfere with the adhesive.

Want to make stickers, but don’t feel like forking out lots of cash for sticker paper? Thankfully there’s an easy way to make your own with stuff you probably have around the house, or are easily accessible.WARNING: These stickers can be VERY difficult to get off depending on the surface you put it on. They are not like your average peel-n-stick and might rip during removal. If you get in a…sticky situation…for what you stick where it’s your own damn sticker adhesive and you’re gonna soak in it!If you like my Instructable please rate it. :)UPDATES: – Thanks to ItstheHobbs for helping me remember what contact paper is called.- Please do not ask me to upload my sticker designs. I’m not going to give them to you no matter how nicely you ask. The only way to get one is for me to personally hand you one.- I just added that pun in the warning there. Please do not hesitate to shoot me in the face.
