Load an inkjet printer with 8 x 11 inch (20.3 x 27.9 cm) vinyl printer paper. Load the paper into the printer’s paper tray so the print side (non-adhesive side) will be the side that the printer prints onto.

If you’re not sure whether to put the paper face up or face down in the tray, run a test sheet through the printer to check.[6]

How do you provide customers with stickers that are easy to peel off the backing? Do you position the stickers on a certain part of the sticker paper? Thanks!

Click the print preview button to see how your stickers will print. If any of the copies of your design are cut off in the margin, move them in further away from the edge of the template. Make sure none of the copies are overlapping.

A Computer or Tablet. Anything with a large enough screen and the correct software will do, but note that it must be able to print.

Use a pointed tool to scrape of the unwanted areas of sticker, then save or discard before applying the transfer film or paper.

Create your design on the computer using image editing software. If you don’t have Photoshop or Illustrator, use a free image editing software like GIMP. Recreate your sketched design using your software’s drawing and editing tools, or scan and upload your sketch and work from that.

If you’re making a colored design, use bold, vibrant colors that will show up well when printed.[3]

Peel back the rest of the over-laminate backing slowly. Press the laminate onto the vinyl paper as you go. Keep going until you’ve peeled off all the backing and the whole sheet of vinyl is laminated.[9]

Apply an over-laminate sheet over your stickers. Peel back the backing at the top of the over-laminate sheet and line the top edge of the laminate up with the top edge of the vinyl paper. Use your fingers to press the laminate onto the vinyl paper so it sticks.

The first thing that we need to do to is design our sticker. You can use any image that you would like, but for this instructable we will just be using the star wars logo and some text that I created.Okay, the first thing you do is run Microsoft Word and open a new document. Next, insert a text box and place it where you want the sticker to print on the page. Now, right click on the box and add text to the box. Now, if you just want a background for your sticker and text, you can insert that now. If you want to print an image, you are going to have to click on your text box and go to insert picture from clipart or file (in this case file). Then choose your picture and insert it into the text bow. This now allows you to move your image around easier and edit it’s size. Now you can make the image the size that you want it to be. Great! You are done designing you sticker. Let’s move on!

You can easily print your own vinyl stickers at home using a few simple tools. Once you’ve designed your stickers on the computer using an image editing software, print them onto vinyl printer paper. Laminate your stickers to protect them from water and UV rays from the sun. When you’re finished, just peel off the backing on your stickers and they’ll be ready to use!

The first thing we need to do is gather all of our materials.Item #1: Computer with Microsoft word or an equivalent installed in it for designing the stickerItem #2: Inkjet Printer for printing the design onto the sticker paper (in this instructable I am using Ld products’ Inkjet photo sticker paper that can be bought off their website at http://ldproducts.com )Item #3: Sticker Paper, the basis of this whole project  Item#4: Paper cutter for cutting the finished sticker

Look at other vinyl sticker designs for inspiration. Do an online search for “vinyl stickers” or “vinyl sticker designs.” Pay attention to what you like and don’t like about the different designs you see.

Try to find stickers that are similar to the ones you want to make.[1]

Paste the design you created in the new document. If you want to make multiple stickers of the same design, paste the design multiple times and arrange the copies in rows. Make sure none of the copies are in the margins of the template or they won’t print onto the paper.

[5]

Open a new 8 x 11 inch (20.3 x 27.9 cm) document in your image editing software. If the software you’re using doesn’t let you specify the size when you open a new document, edit the size after you open the document.

Look for the size button in your software’s menu bar.[4]

Print your design from the editing software onto a sheet of vinyl paper. Make sure the computer you’re using is set to print to the ink jet printer. Locate the print button in the image editing software and click on it.

Wait for the printer to print your stickers and then grab them from the printer.[7]

Now you have to print your sticker. This will be the easiest part of the process in you do it correctly.*The first thing that you need to know is that the sticker paper needs to be facing down in my printer to print on the correct side. This may not be the case for your printer though, so make sure that the design will print on the correct side of the sticker paper.*The second thing you will need to know is the sticker paper goes through the printer best when it is on top of other sticker paper because there is more friction on the paper when it is on top of regular printing paper.* The final thing that you need to know before printing is to not leave your sticker paper in your printer for too long because the paper will eventually start to turn yellowish at the sides.Now that you know this, it is time to print!  First, insert your sticker paper into the tray of your printer. Next, go the file, then print on your Microsoft Word design. Then, go to printer properties for your printer and select “other photo paper” since the sticker paper is a type of photo paper. Now, select the quality that you want your sticker to print. Finally, press ok on the printer properties menu and press print. NOW YOUR EASILY DEIGNED STICKER IS PRINTING!!

Cut out the laminated stickers from the sheet of vinyl. Use a ruler and a craft knife to make precise straight cuts. If your sticker designs are rounded, use scissors to cut them out, or give them a square background.

Once all your stickers are cut out, discard any leftover paper scraps.[10]

  • You can find vinyl printer paper online or at your local office supplies store.
  • Use clear vinyl printer paper if you want the background of your stickers to be transparent.

Peel off the backing on your stickers to use them. The vinyl backing will be on the opposite side of the over-laminate, on the back of the sticker design. Grab a corner of the vinyl backing with two fingers and peel it back until it’s completely off the sticker.

Place your sticker on a dry, flat surface.

Sketch out your design on paper. Don’t worry about drawing all the details. You just want to get a basic idea of how your design will look before you attempt to make it on the computer. Make sure your design is small enough to fit on an 8 x 11 inch (20.

3 x 27.9 cm) piece of paper.[2]

Can I use these on my phone? Also, can I just print off some pictures from online?

A Pencil or Pen (Note — You won’t be able to change your draft if you use a pen, so choose wisely)

Now that your sticker has printed, it is time to cut it out. This is actually the hardest part of the sticker making process because you have to line the cuts up precisely. That is why I entered this instructable to win the Epilog laser cutter. It would improve the cutting of the stickers that I make using this process for my small business that I started for the printing of custom stickers. I would also be able to expand my business to a whole new market. This would help me to be able to build many more things that will help me to become more experienced in the engineering field since I want to become a Mechanical and Aerospace Engineer.But for now, I use this method for cutting my stickers: *It is best to use a paper cutter for this process, but you can use scissors. First, cutting close to edges of the sticker, but not the actual edges of the sticker. Now, cut out the small parts around the sticker that you didn’t get before to ensure that the sticker is cut evenly. Awesome!! Now you have your first custom sticker printed all on your own!!* this method is used best with squares and rectangles because they are simpler shapes that don’t need a computer guided cutter like the Epilog laser cutter or circuit cutter.Well, have fun printing your custom sticker and don’t forget to comment on your stories if you do this!! Also, help me out with spreading the word so I can win that Uber Cool Epilog Cutter. HAPPY PRINTING!!
