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.

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.
3- Press down with the back of a spoon so that the tape adheres to the image. It will also eliminate bumps and bubbles.
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.
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!
4- Cut along the edge of the printed area and trim away any excess.
7- Let the tape dry completely so that the stickiness returns.

Put the cut out motive into the bowl of water and let it soak for some minutes.
Could I use this technique to create one of those “objects in mirror are losing” car mirror stickers?
When completely dry, you can stick your sticker wherever you want, e.g. on a glass jar.
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.
I don’t think it would work with ink… with coloured pencils maybe, but I have not tested that…
If you are using an unmodified sticker sheet, cut the stickers using a pair of scissors.
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.
Acquire transparent sticker paper that’s appropriate for your type of printer. Some brands have specific products for inkjet printers or laser printers, while others are compatible with both. Most office stores will carry a selection, and many varieties can also be purchased online. Try to find paper that fits your needs. For instance, if these stickers are for mailing envelopes, find sheets that have been precut into rectangles.
1- Print your image with a laser printer (Take into consideration the width of the tape).
Is it necessary to stick the tape immediately after printing?!
Although printers typically print on plain white paper, they are by no means limited to that. They can print on paper of any color, and they can also print on transparencies. Some of these sheets of transparent paper are actually sticker sheets, and by using them you can create transparent stickers. Many sheets of transparent sticker paper come precut in shapes such as circles and rectangles, though others are unmodified and can be manually cut with scissors.
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
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.
5- Soak in water for 5 minutes (The bigger your sticker is, the longer it’ll need to soak).
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?
Determine if your printer uses laser or inkjet technology. This is often stated on the front panel of the printer itself. If you can’t find the information there, refer to your printer’s manual.
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.
Open a word processor or image editor and carefully arrange the data so it will be printed onto the right surface. For instance, if you’re printing addresses for envelopes, make sure that the addresses are spaced in such a way that each one falls neatly onto one of the stickers. To do so, use a ruler to measure the length and height of the stickers, as well as the distance between them. (This information may also come with the sticker sheets.) Many word processors and image editing software have rulers at the top and side of the screen. Use these to gauge where your text should fall.
Introduction: How to Make Clear Stickers – DIY Transparent Labels
Ordering one of those stickers online takes too long for my liking since shipping from the usa to Belgium takes quite some time
What if you draw the design onto paper and ink it? If you try to make it into a sticker would it work?
Everytime I make a sticker it comes out really light and I can barely see it what am I doing wrong?
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.
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 paper did you use? i tried it in my inkjet and use ppc paper or bond paper it didn’t work.
8- Attach the tape sticker to anything you would use a normal sticker on.

2- Cover the image completely with clear packing tape (The heavier duty tape give much better results than thin tape).
Always happy to hear from you! Your comments, shares and all other interactions are very welcome. Thanks for watching!
Print your document. With most programs, this is done by clicking File and then Print. Alternatively, there may simply be a Print Icon that you can press on the program’s toolbar. It will look like a printer with paper coming out of it.
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.
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…
Check to make sure that the printer has printed the labels on the stickers. If it missed, repeat Step 4 paying special attention to where you place the data.

Place the sticker paper into your printer tray. In most cases, you want the labels to be facing down, as printers typically print on that side.
