The following steps show you how to create your own custom sticker sheet designs using Adobe Illustrator. Need help with your designs? Contact us with any questions or use our design service and let us do the work for you.

A sticker sheet is a sheet containing multiple peel-able stickers on a custom designed background.

1. Download our sticker templates

Download our sticker templates from here and open your chosen size.

2. Importing your Background Artwork

Create or import your background artwork into the 'Background' layer. Make sure your artwork fits inside of the template.

If your artwork goes right up to the edge of your cut line, make sure you add at least 1mm of bleed to your designs to prevent any white edges from showing on your finished stickers. Use the blue borders for bleed.


3. Importing your Sticker Artwork

Create or import your peel-able sticker artwork into the 'Sticker Artwork' layer. These are the elements of your sticker sheets that you can peel off and stick places.

Make sure that the peel-able elements of your designs sit at least 5mm inside of the edge of the sheet, this distance is represented by the pink border and leave a gap of at least 5mm between each sticker.

4. Create your cut lines

Create cut lines for your stickers on the 'Cut Line' layer. Red paths with a weight of 0.25pt will do nicely.

5. Saving your designs

Save your design in .pdf format as follows 'YOURNAME-ORDER#-STICKERSHEET1of2.pdf'
