How to Make Your Own Stickers
Pick a Size
We offer a huge range of sizes for multiple uses. Here’s a quick rundown of our shapes and sizes and how to best use them:
- Small circle, square and rectangle – best used as logo or picture stickers as text can be illegible; use them for sealing envelopes or quick and affordable branding
- Medium circle, square and rectangle – ideal for sales stickers and event handouts, they benefit from minimal text on the design
- Large circle and rectangle – these make great branded laptop stickers and are large enough to have legible text
- Extra large rectangle – the perfect size for bottle labels or address labels
Set Up Artwork
If you want to create a circle sticker design, you don’t actually need to set your artwork up as a circle! Set them up as a square and that’ll act as your bleed area.
For example, you’d set 37mm circle sticker artwork up as a 43mm square, with the design within a 31mm area in the centre.
If you want to add a border to your design, make sure it’s at least 3mm thick.

How Do My Stickers Arrive?
We’ll send your stickers and labels on A4 sheets of adhesive stock. You’ll then be able to peel them off to use straightaway or cut them out for easy distribution.
How Sticky Are They?
The lifespan of our stickers depends on what surface you’re sticking them on. Solid surfaces like glass bottles are great, as are plastic and paper bags. They also work great on paper surfaces, like envelopes as seals.
They work best on dry surfaces, so we recommend using them indoors only.
They have a temporary lifespan on clothing. This makes them ideal for short term use, like name or sale stickers. For more permanent clothing labels, check out our swing tags here.
How to Remove Sticker Residue
When you’ve been using a sticker for a long time, it can leave a sticky residue on the surface of whatever it is you’ve stuck it on.
Although it can be tempting to scratch it off with something sharp, this can cause damage to the surface. To safely remove the residue, we recommend applying an acetone-based nail polish remover to a slightly damp cloth to gently roll the residue off. Use hot soapy water for any remaining residue.
How to Remove Stickers from Cars
We don’t recommend applying your personalised stickers and labels to cars. But if you want to brand your vehicle, magnetic signs are a fantastic option. And the best bit? They’re easy (and mess-free) to remove!
